Default I just finished my new Battlesuit... Shas'El Tael Style

Hey guys... Here is the latest suit for my jungle cadre that was sitting on my workbench in 90% WIP status for months...
It was inspired by Shas'El Tael's Stealth Pattern Crisis.. I didn't want to copy the parts 1:1 so I kept some parts of the original kit.
The picture is not the best because I currently don't have time to take proper pics... I'm going to add better pics later =)

Hope you enjoy

Good clean paint job with nice highlights, and that base is awesome!

It really annoys me when people add 'Sorry for the bad pics', or words to that effect, like some kind of disclaimer to excuse the useless blurred images they present, from which we are expected to judge their model. But these pics are fine, in fact they're great, so I don't know what you're apologising for...unless you have already changed the pics but forgot to edit your message. :shifty:

Anyway, the model itself is splendid. I know I say that about almost everything I comment on, but that's only because I don't comment at all on the models I don't like...leastwise not to say anything complementary; just how they might improve.

The pose is excellent, the lenses are very nice, the battle damage is pretty good (although you'd get a less two-dimentional effect if you actually took a scalpel to your models), the rust stains are great, but the base...wow. The base is absolutely fantastic, I love it. This is a great mini, nice job.

Yep, I'll second pretty much everything Tom said. Pics are good. The lenses are nice and the base is incredible. It's very good to see someone finish the base - especially to this level of quality.

Thanks for sharing,
Em

thanks mate
Always nice to hear feedback from you... I'm a fan of your Imperial Fists
well the picture was taken with my new Digital SLR.. Could be the quality of the new camera that makes the picture stand out for you.. The thing I was referring to was the coloured background I usually use on my models.. My fingers on the picture are also not the best..I'm nit-picky when it comes to photography..
See what I mean =)

also nice new avatar... Seems like the bad guy Tom Norman ;D cropped his girlfriend out of the picture =)

me too.. But you know: Taking pictures and photographing miniatures are two different kind of arts
We are a community of painters and modelers and not a photography school... Very annoying to see blurry pics of splendid models...
Every artist should take the time to get proper pics =)

Farseer_Emlyn, Thor{DoH}:
also thank you for your kind words

Very nice base. The whole model in general looks very good.

Wow, these things are popping up everywhere!

Looks very nice. Nice scheme. And as Tom said, great base.

How did you solve the jet pack to body body issue? The shoulders look like flamers, but did you do something to mask the connection? Could we get some pics? It seems like everyone has a different solution to the problem!

I'm afraid to admit that I don't remember the parts I used.. Could be flamers...
I also don't have WIP shots
Sorry I couldn't help...

Very solid paint job, and nice base to go with it. Bravo, it will be a splended model to join your force.
