Default Vostroyan Trooper

Here's the test model that I painted up for my brother's IG army, the 1st Spetznaz. The vostroyans count as Storm Troops/Grenadiers in his army.

I'm quite pleased with this, though it always seems to look worse when I look at the photos . Oh well.

As always, C&C not only appreciated, but much needed :P.

What you've done is good, but it could use a bit more variety in color...

The gun looks a bit bent, and I don't really like the colour you picked for the rifle, its supposed to be made of wood.

EDIT: The eyes are awesome.

+++It looks good but it gives the impression that it`s not painted in parts.+++

Looks good but I too find the same colour for the guns stock and the main part of the furnishings well, it does'nt look right, I'd possibly try the same shade of grey as used for the bayonets grip?

Very nicely done I really like the lenses for the eyes, and the rifle fits well with the uniform.

My only C&C would be to work on the base a bit more you could mix up some backing soda and white glue for the snow and clean up the base trim a bit

Try to include a bit more contrast in the model. I would go for maybe black gloves and/or a gray colored rifle to make the individual parts stand out a bit more. The mask is well done, but I would have probably left it a bit darker. A black base coat with a lighter drybrush of boltgun metal or steel would have been my preference.

Its not often that a winter model "looks" cold. Usually They look like a guy who just stepped out of his house into a few inches of snow, even Vostroyans often don't "look cold." Yours, however, I actually feel sorry for him standing out in the cold for the past 4 days so that he's now covered in frost... almost.
