That looks a lot better now, but i'm not sure that i like the pink/purple thing on the back, to me it just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the tank. Apart fromthat it looks great.

Hmm, tone down the pink a bit, purple perhaps, at the moment its a tad too bright. And I'm not even going to say what the back of the bombard looks like.

I really like the overall look of the force, specifically your normal troops, they're awesome. The terminators came off well too.

Only things I would do are:

1)Either make the cloths on the guns bigger, or take 'em off, they're not doing anything there, mostly looking messy.

2)Give the bombard a closed/closable breech

3)Make the tentacles on the Basalisk more substantial, they don't look like the could control a gun the way they are.

4)Make the Raptor champion more Chaosy, maybe with some symbols or such.

These are just suggestions though, you're quite welcome to continue interpreting your force the way you want.

Maybe I'm just weird...but I liked your original tanks....
Not that the new ones are "bad", but the original tanks just had, IMO, a better feel and flair to them.

Hmmm, the purple and pink seems a little strong for what you've got already, but other than that, great additions.

When you say "remastered" do you mean you've changed the models you still have, or do you mean you've made more of the same stuff you had before you sold them?

I kept most of my tanks in the end and ended up canabilising my turreted land raider for parts, the basi and bombard are the original models but redone. As said I've since redone the flesh on the basi its more orange and looks alot better next to the rusty chasis

thats what I felt when I originally built the first army but honestly after building an armored company and having used almost the identical weathering process I wanted the two forces to be more defined apart :)

WHAT the original I.W army was superb! Not bland at all... But this one is turning out to be as good, if not better! Great work!!!

I like the modelling but I would suggest a more gradual build up in the shading on the fleshy parts. The jump from red gorey parts to the flesh itself is a little to sudden.

Aside from that I think it gets across exactly the idea of chaos you are trying to create.

if you want I can post the picture of my chemical burned finger to show how flesh can jump from red to normal in a very small space :P

yeah, i wanna see that! last night i touched the coil on the inside of my stove trying to make a midnight snack, ouch! maybe we can swap horrible flesh wounds, im always looking for insperation for my nurgal army...
p.s. i dont care what anyone else says, that defiler if ******* wicked. my only questions are; why did you arm it with a las-cannon and how much putty do you go through in a year? that stuff is expensive!

its healed up now so my arguement is mooted :(

My LATD army doesnt have much anti tank so if I can slip in a couple lascannons all the better. Not too much putty I've just been splurgin lately.

Never seen a IW army that is not metal-daemonic possessed. Makes for a cool style when you have the very industrial looking paintjob and the splodgy-disgusting mutations covering parts of them.

Keep it up pal, I wanna see more :D

I like the assault marine looking raptor but don't really know where it would fit into a IW army.

The obliterator virus was no machination of peturabo, it was an outbreak of tinea mutated by the warp!

I've now got a set date for the army, the 10th, so I have to power through this project fast. I won't have my digi cam for a week or so because my girlfriend wats it to uh take some photos so uh yea heh.

Very impressive, that's some really nice painting man!!

Btw the raptor champ looks great, very nice contrasting if you ask me... Though I would have to see the rest of the squad to see if they fit in with pinkish theme of your army ;)

Keep it up!
