It just takes time, I remember my thread took awhile to get people interested. And as f late it has somewhat suffered. The more pics you have the more likely people will look.

So far your stuff looks good, although the paint looks thick in some spots. Keep up the good work and you should have a good looking army!

Ha! Great place to find inspiration, bushes :angel:

That said, I like your scheme, and like that it isn't red red and green green, but more orange-red and dark green - or at least that's what my work comp shows, though it's generally a little too dark. While the green armor plates can survive without much definition, I think the 'red' parts on the FW could really use an ink wash or something, if you're feeeling up to it.

Also, is that stealthsuit done? Your FW have all this red on their arms and legs and very little black in general, but the stealth has black limbs and just a lot of black. Maybe your suits and vehicles are more black than red, and will look more coherent when there's more of them?

In that case, keep up the good work and give them some buddies!

so good to know one is not the only person to lurk in bushes outside windows looking for inspiration.... :eyebrows:

@ dark angel: I honestly can't tell from the pictures if the grey parts of the Stealth suits are painted or not. If they are, very subtle work. If not, you are extremely disciplined when it comes to applying the ol' pigment? Either way, very commendable.

Your Sicarius looks very good. Set the other models up against a white background, and one'll be able to see them more fairly.

your models are looking very good, my compliments.

Killzone Liberation is a nice game, but at chapter 3 it gets a bit more difficult:chrome:
