Top notch job on the weathering. You really went above and beyond on it and it shows. You should be proud of this model.

Nitpicky stuff, the skorcha's barrels should be drilled out. At the very least paint some holes on the end :P The position of that lower right arm is just awkward. I get that you were trying something different but the position just doesn't fit with the other two arms.

Thank you very much for the praise.

I want to drill out the barrel but do not have a small drill to do it, and I thought I had painted on it, so I better do that.

As to the arms, I imagined that the other two would smash forward and that one would swipe across. It isn't glued, so it can be removed with a weapon destroyed result so how do you think it should be positioned?

Thanks for the comment.

The model looks great. [nitpick] The brown and white on the tusks look like there is a little too stark a contrast at the base to the top of the tusk. I think it would look better if it looked like the top of the face blended to the white.

Lovely paint job, i especially like the detailing on the tusks and the shull front.

Truly fantastic work.

Ahh, I might add a very light brown wash onto it to darken it down, like I did to the face.

Thank you for the comment.

You asked for it. :P

In all honest, I really like it. The weathering all over the model is great and I like the choice of colors. My only nitpick is that the areas of red on the main hull look thin and not as weather as the rest of the vehicle.

I think this looks well good!
as some others have said, i'd position the lower arm differently (just more forward or to the side instead of in front) but that's just my opinion.
And if it's this position so you can remove during a game to show battle damage, that's pretty cool!

Basically, it's class, I think the paint is great (way better than anything i've managed so far) and the only changes i'd make are to posing, and that's entirely down to personal preference.

Nine one!
