Default Fire Warriors, one 'ui and one with comm equipment

Did a little converting on these ones, for the shas'ui I used the tank commander head, and repositioned the hand and fingers to make it look like he's waving and screaming orders to move. On the other guy I used a bit from the land raider sprue as the backpack(I was missing one) a drones antenna and the small antennae is the handle from the heavy weapon on the Dark Eldar warrior sprue(shredder or splinter cannon I think..)










Comments and criticism are very wellcome

PS. Admins plz tell me if I should link some of them instead, due to their size...

The small additions to the pieces are great, I enjoy seeing small details on models, the things that makw them stand out. Nice modelling work Slai

I love the hyper highlighting on the black, taking the highlighting to an almost blue/space wolf level really works, and you have pulled it off very well, and you have used a nice gloss on the armour, of which I am fond.

One thing, the details and painting on the figs are wonderful, but this appears to not have been carried through to the bases. They are good, but I feel they could be much better.

I did all my FW's and stealth's bases in the same style, first I added bits of cutted and sliced sprue, weapons from other races and such to the bases, and then I applied PVA glue and dipped the bases in sand. After the black basecoat I painted watered down black to the places where the spray reached, then drybrushed codex grey, then skull white. The metal parts was painted boltgun metal, brown ink, thinned black, bultgun metal,
mithril silver, scorched brown, bultgun metal etc etc etc... in other words, I was experimenting...

*Is awed*

Fantastic work, would look good in an urban on moonscape conditions, judging by how well the cameo works with the base. And the mouth of the 'ui is a great little touch.

Very cool. I like the way you managed to make them look like they are in a night fight.
