Started a log on these guys in the Project Logs area as well but I like to get feedback/crits. What do you think of my Cryx colour scheme? Like it, dislike it, change it, etc.

Looks really nice Wraith! I like the colour scheme, the metallic colours and the greens work very nicely with one another and the eyes look great.

Nice painting I look forward to seeing more :).

I love the steel, the brass is great, but I think the flat olive/khaki panels need something extra. I'm not entirely sure what though, I mean some oily black stains maybe, or a really shiny surface perhaps?

still, +rep on this one.

Could just be the pictures, but the olive does look rather flat and dull, maybe bringing up the panels in a similar effect to Tyranid carapaces would funk it up some.

Class in every other respect though Wraith :wink:

Yeah you guys picked out the one thing about the model that I was iffy about. Not too, too worried about that though as I am not painting these up for display or anything, strictly tabletop use mainly. Might throw some stains on them though, dripping down from the metallic sections, possibly glyphs or something as well. Haven't decided yet to be honest. I do have a question though: what does the base make you think it is walking through, fields, forest, marsh, etc?

Its quite difficult to see in the pics mate, at first glance all I saw was a classic grey rock/shale and grass.

Further detail squinting revealed that there is a very smooth area and a bit of lichen?

So swamp or as Red says waterlogged fields. If its swamp your after some rushes or long grass tussocks might help.

Giz us close up. :)

Marshland it is gents :)

Vash: yeah you are right, didn't think about the grass. I have some of that and will be adding it for sure to other bases, might even pull up some weeds and use the roots as branches on the ground. The smooth area you see is water effects.
