Very nice.
I am a big fan of thematic armies and this one looks like it will look fantastic when completed.

Ugh, I'm completely jealous of your conversion/painting skills. Great job! Looks amazing.

Looks good man - real good - space wolves as chaos - would have thunk it - I mean - It just sounds so crazy.

Hehehe - I wish a CSM codex redux would come down the line - or at least legion books.

Sad Panda indeed.

Brent gud one! Your color choices create a feeling of a subtle hint of depravity. The spots of color, combined with the flesh shield, and the washed metal works very well together. Again, kudos!

Sometimes I am not sure how to comment on your painting. I have trouble telling when you are asking for advice on color choices for tabletop paint jobs, or are looking for true C&C on the paint job.

It looks decent although I am not a huge fan of full metallic marines.

I still see some of the tell tale Brent signs on this one. Looks like you are still lightening your colors with white. I think I can see it on the pink, blue, and maybe on the flesh on the shield.

As for the shield, I have a question about the flesh. Is it newly dead? If so where is the blood. If not I think the color may be a bit off. I know living humans whose flesh does not look that healthy.

Also, the pink and blue look forced. Like you where looking for a place to add some color and that is where it fell. It may also fall back to me dislike of colored hoses ect. Maybe a personal preference thing.

I'd say most of my stuff falls under the tabletop quality models; certainly this one does.

I appreciate the comments, even when I don't end up changing anything. In this case, I like metallic marines quite a bit... but I've been staring at the skin trying to decide if I should do blood or not.

My original idea was to have glowing green or blue in the symbol - that idea ended up transferring to the blue piping.

Mmm... I think blood is in order; if I had more time, I'd throw up a grid and get a consensus on where folks thought blood appropriate. I think that'd be fun.

Since I don't have time, I'll do the less is more.

Be right back!

looks pretty solid to me. I like the flesh on the shield, adds an interesting bit of color to the model. I think adding blood would just add distraction to the whole thing. though the chaos star might look good with a slight red tint. slight, though.

the metal armor is, i think the best feature. Nice and corroded looking with some very good definition between armor plates.

Not a fan of the purple chest eagle, to be honest. Also, the pink horns could do with some lighter colored streaks focused on the top half to make it look 'horny;

What are those dog models?

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.

Ass.

I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
