Default Vostroyan Basalisk

Here is my first attempt at a non-tau vehicle. It turned out relatively okay. I wanted to try a paint scheme i hadnt seen before on tanks. I am still painting the crew (vostroyan mortar team) as well as considering adding snow and dirt to it but i am a little hesitant as to how to do it. Its pretty much completed anyways.

Great colour scheme for the Vostroyans... although I must say the Basilisk is the worst peice of armour possible for a regiment engaged in hive/urban fighting.

Wow. The shading is great I really like it.

That sucker looks great, a bit shiny, but what could you expect from metalics. Would it look any better if you used some Dull cote on it?

Its not as shiney in real life, you have to take into count that the camera is blasting it with light which makes the metallics reflect it. But thanks for the comments so far. Perhpas i can get some pics of my infantry squad up when ever i get it outta my stores show case. They just won first place in a competition so they have been down there for a few weeks.

EDIT: Perhaps ill just make this an ongoing thread where i will show some updates of my vostroyans every now and then.

I like it. The basilisk fits the look of the vostryan infantry.
