If you want the skin to blend into the armour you will have to layer it instead of drybrush as you will need a more gradual transition than drybrushing will allow you. However if you do it right there is no doubt it will look awesome.

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?

Thx was wondering about that, since with Wordbearers there is a megenta ink wash to give it a more crimson look and i thought drybrushing might make a good skinlike transition, but layering will prolly work better, thx much^^

Damnit, I'm too late. Anyway, the tabard looks flat and unconvincing, and one or two more realistic folds along the length would make it fit much better. It's the little details being correct that really elevate a model from good to excellent.

very nice, It looks as if his armor draws power from ice, or is cold. Very cool.

I decided to go back and redo some greenstuff on him. He now has a third eye and the right shoulderpad has been redone similar to Abaddons sword with a ton of small faces instead of the huge eye it had. I like the third eye but I am not convinced the faces are right for the model. I will get a pic when I can and get your opinions on it.

Update:

As I said, I didn't like the way the shoulderpad turned out so I once again ripped off the gs and redid it. Now the shoulder has 5 or 6 eyes all in different directions and angles coming out of it. Going to go with that as I like the looks of it and it fits the Tzeentch theme imho.

Sounds very interesting, great work so far! The blue metal armour
is also very interesting, I was have been thinking of trying something
like that for a while. But I was very unsure if it would look good, looks
like I'm going to have to gve it a try

And great work on that ball of warpflame, very Tzeentchy!

Currently working on CSM (IW, Purge and Traitor Guard), Tyranids, Astronomican's Datasheet project....and oh yeah my thesis project

I have gone back and once again redone the shouldpad. Now the model has 5 or 6 large eyes on the shoulder which fits the Tzeentch theme more I think.

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?
