Default Bright Red Hammer Head

Hi,

A while ago I showed some pictures of my Hammerheadīs various upgrades. Itīs all painted and ready for action now... (Well except for the varnishing, but itīs pouring outside.)

So, here it is:


front, with Railgun and SMS attached (It's partially magnetised so I can switch weapon systems)


Right side...


And fitted with the alternate weapons fit.


and my heroic veteran tank commander. (The highlights on his face are, unfortunately rather washed out by the lighting.)

More to see here:

So, what do you think?

Greetings, Erik

change some of the black to grey and it would be perfect for an o'shova army

I think it could use more symbols (decals, random Tau marking, etc.) but that is a really great "Red Paint job". Really . It would make an Ork proud ;D.

Thanks for the kind comments!
I know the red has a strong O'Shovah association (O'Shovah Red has more brown in it though), but it's a Sa'Cea cadre, meant to escort commerce/diplomatic expeditions, so they are all in parade ground colours to maximise impressiveness/intimidation.

It's not yet varnished at the moment, I guess I could add some more markings.
I've finished it yesterday, its just sitting around for a couple of days now, so I can look at it with a fresh eye and decide wether or not it is actually "finished". Looking back at the pictures it does seem a little bare...

Greetings, Erik
