if it was named something else you clowns would still bitch, and its funny the same people bitch about everything lol.
and im willing to put $$ on it that this guy can do better than any of the complainers.
still a very talented guy with great skill good job
If it didn't have the terminator helmet and it were labeled "dwarf lord" I would think that it was a great model. The problem with it is that it doesn't capture the spirit of Leman Russ, which means that no matter how well done it is, people aren't going to like it because it looks wrong. If I made a beautiful model of an ork and said "behold! the god-emperor of mankind. $130 please" it would be ridiculous because it wouldn't look right. So modelling skill isn't really a good substitute for a good design.
It doesn't fit my mental image of Russ, but I can't do better with just greenstuff. I'm still entitled to my opinion, as this is sculpting and sculpting, along with all other art, is subjective. No need to discount everyone's opinion on the basis that the model is generally well sculpted (leaving out the ork head of course). Maybe it's ok not to like a model of the Space Wolf primarch that has no wolf imagery on it.
