That's one nice model.... look forward to the end result.


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

I agree with this foundational concept of the assassin. They should be "invisible", not "black". As one looks around a room, the assassin is simply not seen...the eye travels over him/her with nothing to cause the eye to register as "not normal" and stop to look closer. Since the fluff around the DE seems to indicate they tend to attack at night, the assassin would need to blend into the night.

At night, it is not always totally black. There is the ambient moonlight or starlight if the sky is clear or faint lights from fires/torches that the "black" garbed mass of an assassin will show up as a shadow of darkness. Grey, or Deep Red, or a Camo pattern of various greys/reds will fade into the background blurring the assassin's shape and the eye will pass over the dark grey and not lock into it being a dangerous shape, unless the assassin is idiot enough to place himself/herself between the viewer and a light source.

Unfortunately, my work server blocks pics posted on photobucket and other public photo sites so I am voicing my opinion from the context of what others are saying, Midge913. Once I get home and can see the actual pics, I'll reengage and voice a more relevant opinion.



You know, it would be interesting to hear from any military that are a part of Heresy who have been trained in Special Ops and trained to work at night to see what they might have to say....

Thanks for all the input and compliments fellas I appreciate it! I am going to continue to contend that the piece looks much better in person than it does in the photo, but I finished the assassin this evening. Let me know what you think.

Not Spec ops but have trained in night warfare seeing that is when we did about 95% of our missions.

Ben you have a paint spec on the 2nd fold in about 2/3rds of the way down.

If this was a night based assassin his cloak is too smooth as it would create an outline. The cloak would be wrinkled or layered in something that breaks up his outline. Leaves would be nice but ben would go nuts laying them on one at a time to get them to look right.

Isn't that what it's all about?? Beeing cool and stuff??
But seriously, It will look good on the table and will stand out among others as I think it should.

I think it looks fantastic brotha! I am glad you went with a more darker look...too me, it just feels and looks cooler. Great job dude!

Tell me about it. These commissions have been for a usual opponent of mine, and I am sure this guy is going to cause me grief in the future. Best laid battle plans tend to go out the window when one of these guys takes out 4-5 of your rank and file, or your character in the unit before you even get a chance to raise an axe

Excellent job here again man. I'm missing the gray tones in the cloak but that's just a personal taste.

Its still a grey cloak mate, I didn't actually do anything different to it. I just messed around a bit with camera settings and it came out a bit truer to the RL version of the piece.
