Djinn24 The side where its weathered might look good if you striffled a dark red in there. Maybe red with a touch of boltgun to give it just a bit of metallic rust. Also the black panel on the front... looks pristine, just out of place.

Very nice piece and it is shaded really well.

The skulls were purchased online (the websites name eludes me at the moment). I basically trimmed, shaped, and glued each one in place. *sigh*

Thanks! I was extremely worried that the red and green combo would look Christmasy... I don't think it does though.

That's fair, to each their own. I was trying to go for a lightning rod conductor look rather than just a lascannon but I wasn't sure if I could pull off some nice freehand pattern like lightning or what-have you... Hence I just left it as shaded green :D

Thanks mate!

I partially agree with you. I wish the top was a bit more weathered, especially on the edges (and you'll notice my next couple of vehicles will be like that as I've started on the weathering for them). However, I like the amount on the sides and I do think it should be more than what's on top.

scscofield From actual experience while in the army with tank paint jobs I can say the sides tend to take much more abuse than the top of them :-p One of the few actual useful things from the army I got :-(
