Everything about your project so far has been so completely inspirational, I'm amazed!
I love your painting, just in general, but your freehands are just wow. Awesome job xenobiotic, keep up the awesome work!
Glad you like it Oakley and thanks for the kind comment. I hope to continue to inspire

It's probably because the Tarantula rules are somewhat ambivalent and strange. I'm going to get a couple of each type though (I think). I'm considering using them in smaller games as a way to annoy the enemy and fill up odd points (when everything is riding transports it's hard to add one marine sometimes). As long as it isn't a killpoint game it should be fairly ok and even usefull.
The one thing I hate about mixing mediums (green stuff, plastic and resin) is that the different properties of the mediums makes it harder for me to quickly harden the green stuff in the oven (since resin in particular is more heat sensitive than plastic). So I'm forced to do 2-3 layers of green stuff work each day, making sure I only add one layer to each part of the miniature and let it harden before I move on (one thing on the legs, one thing on the chest and so on).
Well, today I think I'm one step closer to finishing up the chest of my Tyberos counts as. He now has the dual layered lightning bolts on there which was my main goal for the chest plate. I also managed to tweak the abdominal soft armour into something I can live with!
On the legs I've only done a small but still important change - adding the curved dagger and a tiny belt to attach it to his armour. It's details like these that make character models pop by comparison to their fellow soldiers.
The helmet in these pictures is more of a place holder. I'm still on a look out for a better helmet (still no signs of FW World Eater helmets on any of the bits sites
). Another thing that I need to work out (for this miniature and my terminators) is some kind of tube tool. I was considering getting these: http://masq-mini.com/aid-240-TubeTool-Set.html
but their webstore appears to be down at this moment and I'd rather not spend 30€ if I could (20+10 shipping) but it's a neat tool to have as tubes are a big roadblock otherwise.
So all in all, lot of things left to do!
See you soon!
