it aint camo actually, its magma flowing under the armour. if you go to any of the GW sites and look at renegade and traitor legions under painting, its in there

edit : it doesnt show up very well unfortunatly, much more awesome in person, looks evil :)

I imagine it does. Too bad the camera settings aren't really showing it off. I 'know' it looks more impressive than the pictures show, and the pictures still show a pretty cool model. I like the Termies, too. Have you thought of making the vehicular magma flows just a bit wider/stronger? And, how about making more natural curves, rather than sharp angles in the flows? Or is the 'angle' angle part of the scheme?

the angles are part of it, because extreme instant heat like that makes things crack rather than melt.

edit: also i dont know if you can see/noticed but i did a bit of work on the lenses below the Havoc and twin-linked bolter in the frontal shot and on the eye in the rear shot

I can understand the sharp angles for sure as cracks tend to be that way but I would like to make one suggestion: the lines themselves are too uniform in width and need to be a bit randomized. It doesn't have to be crazy or anything but having some parts of those lines widened out to almost show pools and other spots that are just barely cracks will give it more of the magma look you are after.

Nice stuff though, don't get me wrong. Look forward to seeing more.

hmm maybe i wasnt too clear, thats exactly how it looks on my guys, so thats how i want it. its just magma below the surface really, not showing through too much.

ive finished the termies so ill post some pics up once i can be bothered

Very nice stuff there mate. Never seen that sort of thing done on Astartes. Good risk - payed off as well.
