I like the spotted haunches on the Manticore.

The white looks quite smooth so far.

While all the work here is good I really love the green on that sphinx.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks Wraith, I really must crack on and finish that model. The green was fairly easy to do, just incredibly time consuming. Its built up using glazes of dark angels and scorpion greens, then washed back with glazes of chaos black. If anyone's got any suggestions for thinning the paints other than with water it could help a lot, they need to be really thinned down and the risk of them splitting is a pain in the arse.

Just found this photo, painted this guy quite a while ago.



He's my first adventure into Scibor miniatures, very pleased with him if I'm honest. The glowing green eye hasn't photographed well at all, it looks much better IRL.

I really love the blue with the contrast of bronzeish colour armour. Very very nice and love the contrast all around.
