Thanks guys. I really appreciate the feedback. I was thinking of drybrushing the bottom of the tank bleached bone/skull white. What do you think?

Actually, I'd think about painting the lower hull to match the magma lines of the upper hull, kinda giving the impression that the plates are 'floating'.

Oh yes I like Hespithe's idea. It will look awsome.

Your magma is really nice i can really see the heat of it. If I saw that sort of thing charging the feild at me I would be running as fast as I can in the other direction.

I've decided to hold off on finishing the tank for the moment, and bring the unit it carries up to the same level.

I still have the Spirit stones to finish, as well as to get the highlighting done on the armor plates and re-touch up the black parts.

For now. Enjoy the lethal tank killing squad that is Fire Dragons, and Wave Serpent with Brightlances.

That looks hot, literaly.

One thing I would say I 'm not sure if its because of the distance or not is just make the eyes a little clearer. But otherwise get me my sunscreen.

I like the effect on the Fire Dragons and the Avatar but I have to admit, I am not a fan of it on the tank. Having it in all the cracks like that just gives it a heavy Tron look (and yes I just revealed my age to all and sundry). In the vents it looks fine but I don't think it suits the tank to have it in the lines. Not trying to put it down, it looks well done for sure, but it isn't quite right looking to me.

My 2 cents.

Do like the bases. However I don't know about the highlighting - it may just be the pictures but they look very extreme which kinda detracts from the black.

Love the bases though. Keep on going I'll reserve judgement untill I have seen more.

And yes you do have to post more pictures. :D

Akenseth, for the bases I would suggest you break up the straight lines in the lava colours. Lava is very rarely going to straight edges in the colour variation like that. Try making the edges of each layer a bit more.... wavy for lack of a better word. And don't worry about having each layer in roughly the same shape as the last one either. The randomness will add more flavour than anything.

Check out the sword on my Daemon Prince for an example of what I mean:

That's really cool. I think It kind of looks like the Balrog's horde, y'know, like "Rise, my minions" and then all these creatures float up and like, chatter and hiss to each other, and they have lava cooling on them, so they have black armor and molten rock pours from the cracks in it, scalding the unwary attackers who dare to wound it. I like the idea. I might have to steal it for a Khorne army, led by the Balrog (Who will be playing a Bloodthirster.)

I'm back, with plenty of pics! That black paint is shiny, theres no gloss of any kind.

Banshees!



Banshees Transport, a WIP.







The next piece is kinda special. A Farseer that leads a Swordwind should be dramatic, aggressive, and all around dynamic.

I decided that even the new seer models didn't really cut it when it came down to it. So, I did what any modeler would do, made one. I started off with Teclis as the base model. Next, I cut off the top of his staff and his sword. Which is a shame, because its a cool looking sword. Anyway, once that was done, I cut off the tip of a Singing spear, and glued it onto the top of his staff.

I re-sculpted his chest, and made him a female, using green stuff. I did this because there simply aren't enough female Farseers. Next up, was resculpting the face. I matched the Farseer helmets, in this instance. I redid the waist, and legs, as Teclis' legs are too skinny for even an elf. Next, I added hair onto the back of the model, to re-enforce that this is a female. Finally, I added spirit stones onto the helm.





Some WIP shots of the Farseer damsel.
