the over all painting is very good, however the lizard men sheild ruins your suit there. As does it's base, i hate to say it but due to that i'd say you'll get alot of negative critisism

This will probably turn out to be true. especially abot the base and shield which i do not like either!

It may just be the picture, but the DF looks quite alot like all you have done is drybrush the entire model with a darker shade of grey, straight onto the resin, with no undercoat. No variation either, far to bland.

In fact, the only positive comment i can give is about the crisis suits position, I like it how it looks like he has just taken off by jumping backwards.

That shield kills the mini, but the pose is cool. Maybe fix up the base with some more scenery and cover the whole thing. Besides that the rest is good and stippling on the devilfish is mad, great work

I have to agree abou the lizardman shield I like the pose it looks like he's flying backward while shooting. I thikn adding a bit more to the base would help. The fish is good table quality painting keep t up

ncie work although as said before not diggin that shield. i like the fish it appears as though you got a cool look by simply drybrushing. loks like a very quick(i apologize if it was hard) and easy process.
