Default Finished red terror pics

Really happy with the claws, they were rather difficult to do. I like the freehand on the back of the carapace. Without it i think it'd be a bit dull and boring.

I still have to buy some water effects and pour it into the base.

Nice job! The freehand looks great, as do those claws...the whole thing looks great!

I don't know Gareth. I think the shading on the arms is a little sloppy. And is that a mold line? :P

No, I'm kidding, really. Excellent work as always. Terrific work and very inspiring.
Thanks for sharing,
Em

Great stuff, bud. Love the claws, but I'm not so keen on the yellow markings on his carapace.

I think its an amazing paintjob, deserving of such a well constructed conversion.

But I think I've got to side with Tom Norman on this one, your freehand work is top notch, and it really ties your amry together well wil a dangerous feel. But I sort of think the red terror could use more....red? Or maybe the freehand markings could have been red. Although I understand you'd want it to fit in with the rest of your army, and removing the yellow markings could make it seem out of place. But I sort of have trouble seeing it as anything more than a snakey carnifex, since it so perfectly fits in with the rest of your army's colours.

It could just be that the rest of your army is painted to such a high standard that in many ways its not the paintjob that is going to turn heads on the model as much as the great conversion will. But then again my jaw would probably be on the floor if I saw it in real life

I really like the yellow markings. It does need to tie in with the rest of your force and I think without the markings it would stand out in a bad way and would look pretty plain, even with the rest of the model looking great. I'm really looking forward to seeing it once you've finished the base. Great work Gareth!
