Default Shas'El is DONE ^_^ (Pic Heavy)

Ok everyone ^_^ I had finally finished my Shas'El. I borrowed a somewhat good camera and took few shots. I might try tomorrow at day light. Ok I hope you like it. I might add a "Cadre's Blade" to him, but I don't feel like yet ^_^. Also I have two switchable upgrades on left shoulder. They aren't done, but thy aren't much to look at.

My past work was ignored and sometimes made fun off... Well I don't hold grudge so I keep on trying to improve... ^_^

Anyway he is done. Meet Shas'El Vash'Ya M'Yen'Sha ("Unforeseen wind").
*** He is fully converted from regular suit. He has Cyclic Ion Blaster, Plasma rifle, and targeting array (head might serve that way). He also has HW MT and Stimulant Injector. I tried some light/plasma effects. I actually really liked them. Main color is green, I dry brushed with gray to add damage, scratches and dust. Metal is ink Washed. Base is custom made. The blue is water, Green thing is just a plant on rocks with flower. ^_^***

Ok I hope you Liked him ^_^. I will put one or two pics of him in the "TAU Individualization Project". ^_^

I hope to here some comments ^_^.

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

(ha! you didn't have to PM me this time :P)

Anyways, in my opinion, I believe he looks too organic. There just doesn't seem to be enough straight lines and circles like any of the other suits in the Tau army. I applaud what you tried to do, but maybe next time you should try it with Plasticard instead of Green Stuff?

And just to ask, is the base staying that way or are you going to do some more painting to it? I say it looks really good by itself ^_^

I like it a lot, but I have to agree with the others as well.

Especially the neck like thing attaching the head to the body, it just doesn't seem to fit.
However, the base looks great. I like it a lot - did you make it completely out of green stuff?! Nice job.

LT -> Ha this time you actually commented by yourself ! ^_^ Anyways. On "organic look". Think about it, its a custom build suit, He (Shas'El) can Ask what he needs. I do not have the whole army like that, just him. Also I don't have plasticard. I have no idea where to get it too. I tried, but search didn't have any results. Again, on organic look, well Legs are as thick as XV8s legs (they are XV8 legs just with extensions), hands are also like that, shoulder pads are pieces from Jet Pack. I was trying to make it proportional. Neck is a bit thin though. CIB was made bigger for that.

Scizor & Dark Adeptus -> same as above ^_^

1shot1kill -> GS? I'm not made of money! ;D Yeah it was, but not from GS. Its made from quick plastic and few styrofoam pieces. Quick plastic is epoxy glue. Its dries faster (30 min) and costs 2$ per 2 oz (57 grams). I make terrain out of it. But yes, base is scratch build.

***General note, the suits of GW aren't exactly "proportional". They have their own "standard". I just wanted to try something different. I choosed more of a "human" standard, though as you see it has lots of edges and not that smooth***

Now I have questions on paint for you guys ->

1. Lights (weapons, chest, head) are they good or bad?
2. Water effect on base?
3. Bolt gun metal was ink washed, good or bad?
4. Grey dry brushing, bad good?

Ok thats it ^_^ Thanx for comment, hope to here more ^_^.

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

I like the lights. To me they represent the best painting on the model.

I would use some sort of gloss varnish. It is not all about color. Sometimes you need to paint texture (or the lack of it), and it is easier to do this by using a different finish.

I think metallics should always see some sort of wash. So good.

4. Grey dry brushing, bad good?
I would say bad. Drybrushing is very easy to over-use. In general, I would stick with a lighter shade of the primary color.

The painting really needs highlighting. The large blocks of green destroy any detail. But a large part of the problem is in how it was converted. As mentioned before, it looks extremely organic. That makes it hard to compare with the rest of the Tau line.

I'm missing the right words..
Well...
for playing it works.
But for the "showcase" ... it's just crap.
Sorry, but truth remains truth.

Thats pretty good. Its been sculpted well, although I concur with the "too organic" remarks, it looks almost too good to be tau, if that makes sense.

And you've given him a AFP
