    Personal best

    I am really pleased with the way this one turned out. It could well be a personal best.

    Well the metal looks good. As for the red I have no idea so I'll leave that for other people to comment on :laugh

    Red cloak and leather look really good.

    Well done sir. I will level some fierce and scathing crit at you!!

    I don't know that I love the red goo from the pipe on the base. I think you've done a good enough job establishing your colors on the model itself (Good God that sounded either really smart or totall pretensious!) and I think I would have rather the gooey stuff been a more traditional oily colored stuff. I think the red draws some focus away from the model myself.

    That's just a pretty minor thing from what I think is a beauty fig. Love it, and I thin kit may be your best, though I was quite partial to your swamp entry.

    The miniature looks really nice. Good metallics (you could possibly try to make the shadows a bit more matte) and the red and brown scheme is both fitting and well done. I do agree with Scott about the red goo, though. I think it is a bit too bright. The bright colour of it makes me think "what can that be?" instead of "feeling the atmosphere", if you know what I mean... But, the rest of the base look good and suits the miniature well. Good work, and congratulations on raising your own level. It's a great feeling, knowing you've achieved something you haven't done before or better than you have before.

    I think the red goo is too much. It will be fixed

    Really nice, love the metallics - only criticism is the same as above, the red goo (makes me feel a little queasy looking at it - which might be the point?)

    Kester, maybe go over the red a bunch of times with one of the GW washes to pukify up the color and make it not red, then the issue will likely be resolved!

    Lot's of compliments on the model, you sure did good!
