Last post now guys, thanks for all the interest. First of all, here's the model from the template with the undercoats on. Finished_Meganob_002.jpg As per a previous request, I don't have a pic with a Barry, or a comparison with a traditional MA nob, but here's one of them both with one of the beakies from the intro table at my local. Finished_Meganob_003.jpg To satisfy those interested, here is the pink one... Don't give me too much grief, it's for breast cancer charity event run at my local club, at least it's a one-eyed ded 'ard nob, even if he is pink... Finished_Meganob_001.jpg Finished_Meganob_006.jpg jpg] Thanks guys, appreciate the comments and crits, I won't be adding anymore to this thread, cos as far as I'm concerened, he's done, bar the rest of the paint, which obviously no-one needs my help with, cos I'm relatively pants at it.

Pink looks girly. Cover it in a thick coat of industrial grade grey dye! nah.....only jokin' (not a very fun joke mid you...) very handy, a great tutorial and it will be of use to everyone who wants a DeffWing Skwadron :thumbs (the dark angels chapter with the terminators....them....you know....er...) shade
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason

This is really top notch work, and I really like the dynamism of the models, albeit with one caveat. You might want to "pull together" the models more, as they seem to have a bit too much movement and therefor don't quite feel like the walking fortresses they should be! Just something to keep in mind for the future.
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee!"
