Good job Cam. Can't really fault it.

Only things I can see on zoom in are some red off the axe handle onto a finger and a blob on his right heel. Picking those things out should tell you how good a job it is.

I think it is a very good looking model, fur and horns and face are the strongest parts here...

I would love to be critical about it, but from my point of view...nothing to add to an already good looking model...

Not where I should be

Well the results are in on Bebops brilliant competition. So many inspirational works on the same model! Truly brilliant stuff. And congratulations to the winners amazing work.

My two entries came (as i expected) well down the list. But I am still trying to learn here and be positive. I will post my entries here now and I want people to rip them to bits. I need to know where I am failing. By the results I am failing pretty badly, so would like to sort that.

So here they are for your scrutiny.....please be openly picky about this.

Entry #1. 155.5 pts out of 255 possible.

Went with a standard camo brown type thingy colour scheme. Tried to do a little OSL on the gun buttons etc. And free hand painting on the helmet and pads.






Entry #2. 147.5 pts out of 255 possible.

Well what can I say. Went for ceremonial guard type of thing. Again with the free hand and little OSL. Really tried with the face on this one. Somehow even managed to paint on individual teeth. I did originally paint the pads all gold, it was a bit too much so painted the pads white with a gold trim.







Thank you for stopping by.

Realy nice looking figs there, the furball is realy good. Nice blends all over.

At the pic apart department on the guardsmen, here is my 2 cents on entrey 1 model.

Could use a nice matt varnish to take the shine of the cloth. My first thought of it is that the overall feel is realistic and some small details is cartoon style. Like the teal stripe on the jacket and line higlighting of the gun wheras the camo uniform and helmet+ face is more smoth and realsitic.

Sorry for my bad english and hope I dosent sound like an ass!

You know Cam, this is going to sound ridiculous but I think the second figure suffers from too many colors scattered around in too many places. To my eye... it just makes it feel a little unfocused. I love all the free-hand work on both figures... that's a real point in your favor. I tend to avoid it because I'm not particularly good at it. Painting the individual teeth just proves your a complete nutter.

I really like the judicious use of color in the first piece. Mainly a brown figure and very believable as a functional military uniform, but the aqua stripe really jumps out at you and adds interest.

1st figure looks like a battle trooper

2nd figure looks exactly like some frippy palace guard whose uniform was designed by a governor or lord with no sense of practical versus pure frippery in an attempt to awe the masses with a glitzy uniform.

is like i said, 1st guy is a in the foxhole, blasts and bullets truly bonfide soldier

2nd guy is guarding some frippy dandies and high lords in a Hive some where safe and clean, a show soldier, plenty of these mentioned in GW novels, the true troopers doubt that these guys will stand their ground when push comes to shove

I can't really add anything more to what has been said.

I've already given you my thoughts on the Orca guard. The other one (apart from the shininess) I feel is still a bit too brown. He could do with a bit more contrast between the armour and the base colour of the trousers. The aqua edge is good and I think there should have been a little more of the colour somewhere else on the model, tie it all together like...

Also the OSL needs a little more work. But I'm not the one to help with that as I've not managed to make that work myself.

Looking really good, great curved shapes on the hood and fenders.

If I were to add something, I'd suggest - esp if going for a realistic look - a slight modification on the tires. Wheels are flattened against the ground by the vehicle's weight, loosing part of the perfect circular shape and slightly bulging outwards

(Please bear with me here, trying to make a point of this is really stretching my command of English! )

If the wheels are solid, pressing them against a hot flat surface might achieve the look I'm trying to explain, or heating it first - reminded of your blowtorch while tipping - and quickly pressing against a flat surface.

If hollow, I'd suggest filing/sanding the ground side and putty-building up the bulge on the side.

Or not, and please excuse my rambling.

@LT I get exactly what you are meaning, and will try.

Door, yes just one for now. Went a bit mad here, it opens and the window works. I must be nuts, got to do another one now, and this took me about 3 hours to do this one, oh well.



Opening.


Sliding windows, as per actual vehicle.


Thanks for looking, sorry it's a bit off topic, but it is model related and I think is good practice for me for a future vehicle or two.

Are you going to add any raised letttering on the sides of the tires? They are large enough to sustain such a detail.

Very nice. Looks like it's almost ready to go on safari.

Thank you guys.

I am afraid I did not hinge the screen. need a solid base for the roof when it goes on, I may go back and do it though.

The glass is old CD cases. Never use CD anymore, and they where spares anyway. The sidings of CD cases have some nice texturing sometimes.

I will be back with an update later, but got RL poxy homer to do first. Don't feel like working, but got to get some dosh.
