Amazing. The hair in particular stands out to me ... but every other detail seems perfect as well. Any details on your plan for the base?

Perfect example of why I love your stuff. None of the artsy sorta shading that's become popular, it just looks real.

The camo reminds me of the effect of ink droplets in a pool of water with the paper floaring on it.... whats that called?

Brilliant work. I expect marvellous cammo from you; but the pilot's face is amazing.

A Grymn Walker walks into a bar. The barman asks "Why the long face?"



He still notices the superb painting on it, though.

...I'll be adding a couple more figures and some crates to the base.

Lovely work!  I especially admire the way you've done the back of his neck so you can even see the paler flesh from his fresh buzzcut.  Amazing work.

I know you're going to add crates and suchlike, but I can't help feeling that the base lacks a sense of narrative context.  Is he the pilot, outside his mech and going for a pistol?  Why?  What's threatening him?  Is he about to jump back in his mech?  Or is he alongside a mech that is already active?

All silly questions given the lovely paintjob, I'm sure, but they seem like a pair that need a story to explain them.  Even just some deceased Grymn on the base, some splashes of blood, or a change to the posture of the mech to give it more alertness would give the set up some life to compliment the gorgeous painting.

Just caught up on this one. Fantastic!  I don't think I'd seen the driver fig either... excellent sculpt, and you did a great job on him  8) *whistle*
