Default My Third Crisis Battle suit

Well here he is crisis suit 3







And here is the team in a group shot



Now I never knew that black would be a hard color to photograph due to the sun being so bright Sad , but its 28 degrees here in Pittsburgh today and my only chance to get fairly good pics that and both my kids were eating lunch at the time I was taking these pics Happy

Enjoy and C&C is always welcome

I like them a lot! What colors did you use (lovin that scheme)

The only complaint I'd have is that the colors look a little flat. I see some highlights (or maybe that's just the sun ) but I think you should add more/thicker/brighter highlights.

Overall very nice and clean ;D

The over all color scheme is Dark Angel's Green (DAG) and catachan green and Ice blue sept marking the first to suits have DAG heads the third has a black head.

As far as highlights I didn't do any I tried on the second suit and they just looked...extreme and a touch sloppy so I just desided against it but with my next suit I may try doing highlights

Very nice....

I like how you've painted the bases, very sleek, any tips?

The scheme is very nice and well painted, the bases are excellent, but the suits look a bit plain. You could try and add the highlights and they will look way better ;D
Good work!

very well painted, but could you have possibly made that guy any MORE static?

The construction and paint job are excellent.

But the pose is boring.
