Default WIP Leman Russ

The first Leman Russ of the Ellixian 127th, has partially rolled off the factory floor...

...Say hello to the Leman Russ "Go Ask Alice".
(Haven't painted the freehand yet...)









Thanks for looking...

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

It looks...spiteful and full of hate. Not that most Leman Russes look like they want to hug you, but this one looks like it might track over you, then reverse to do it again, before finally attaching your ragged and broken body to it's rear towing hook and dragging you across broken glass, just for the hell of it. This vehicle looks like it is composed primarily not of iron, steel of armourplas, but of pure evil.

In fact it might not be entirely inappropriate if you modeled Death himself poking out of the Cupola, brandishing a scythe and gesturing at the enemy with a single bony finger.

Good thing it's WIP. :P

The battle cannon and many other details aren't yet finished, so expect some pleasing pictures in the showcase board.

I like it, it doesn't seem up to your usual standards but that's probably because it's WIP :P

The highlights looks pretty sloppy in my opinion, but that is why it is WIP ^_^

I also fell in love with the gems...they're sweet!

It looks really good, just how the Russ should look.

I'm assuming you will put gloss varnish on the gems, I know its wip but I just wanted to make sure.

Looks good

Won't be using any gloss varnish...

I will be taking a thinned down chaos black to clean up the highlights, though.
