i love the sentinal, looks awesome. russ looks kinda average though. not saying its bad or anything but i like to make my models look a little different. there is nothing to catch my eye and i don't get a sence of movement (which, i know, can be hard on tanks). thats just my opinion

Very good work. Nice crisp painting. Like the tau drones on the base, good work.

Does anyone else see something fatally wrong with painting the vehicle in camo, and the guns / exhausts / fuel bright red? :

It's a russ! It can take it Wargamer.

My only complain is that the front of the hull looks rather bare. Could have done with anothermarking.

As most others have said- I love the sentinel, but not so mad on the tanks red colour scheme. Still, kudos for an original paint scheme I suppose.

I think, if you just re-did the red parts black, it would look better. Also, although the colour scheme is great (aside from the red imo) maybe some camo netting would add some detail? Still, nice painting when it comes to neatness and the camo effect, far better than I could achieve.

I'm not much of a fan of the Russ. It's very dull in colour and detail. Looks like you just spray painted it. Add some shading and highlight and it might look better. Also, I feel the red clashes with the rest of the Russ. It just doesn't go along with it. Shade and highlight it a little and maybe it'll work out, though.

I'm very impressed with the Sentinel however! It's done very well. The only thing I don't like is Tau stuff on the base. The Tau stuff on the base is painted sloppily, and so it doesn't really pair up well with your Sentinel.

Thats one Badass sentinal! As for the Russ, the Dark Brown bits look good, but the Lighter Brown (Cream?) looks a bit flat. I'm still digging the red though (It's to let the conscripts know where the dangerous bits are )
