Default centrepiece commander (finally finished)

After a long time, my thoughts have finally come to life, all of my ideas for a commander, finished!

It may not be brilliant by the standards of many of you, but it is my best painted model. It helps if you don&#39;t look too closely .

The photos are a little blurry. You took the photo with the camera in your hands I suppose? Hehee...

Overall, I think it looks nice. However, due to the nature of the photos, the Crisis Battlesuit looks rather flat at the moment. Like no highlighting was done. Also, there seems to be a fair amount of mold lines that were not removed. Examples would be on the jetpack and the neck area.

Try putting the camera on the table and setting it to Macro and on a Timer. You will find that the quality of your photos will improve a lot.

Hmmm.... not bad, I would say above T.T.Q, but the Suit lacks depth, so I would recommend highlighting it.

Very Clean, and in the lines thats the first goal on the way to great painting , The next step is to add depth with highlights and shading , this will improve your minis greatly.

Keep painting!

Little thick, but still an excellent job.

the paint job is nice looks wise. but the paint is thick and could use a couple minor touch ups.

I wanted to liberally apply red sept markings, but there are no transfers in that colour. Some bits are a bit messy as it was rushed for a tournament.

Nice stuff. Are the banners freehand or print-outs? They MAKE this model. My only gripe is that from some angles his pose looks a lil like he&#39;s sitting on the rubble, but that&#39;s just a minor thing

it is both actually, the pictures are from various internet sources, which I edited and put together myself, but I could not achieve the right red gore shade through a computer so the red is hand painted but the rest is computer work.
