Well, in preparation to begin painting my Sniperfex for the snipers contest, I decided to break out my current line of Monsterous Creatures to compare paint schemes and warm up my photo-taking skills.
So, without further adeau, here are two monsterous creatures that have never before been photographed (These should all be 700 pixels or less, unless MS Paint is lying to me, which is a distinct possibility):
Baphomet, my 2x twin-linked devourer-toting Flying Hive Tyrant (converted from a Carnifex)
Gino (Godzilla in Name Only), my elite CC Carnifex:
Holy monster of Mary! they are some sweetie ass 'fexes!!!
I love the one with the flaming barrels and smurf...is/was he alive at the time and why is he on fire? perhaps the carnifex had some imperial curry!
+rep for such awesome monsterness
Heya poptart, it looks pretty good.
One thing, I'm having a hard time seeing the figure. Its a bit dark and parts have a shiny glare reflecting off of it. I would really like a chance to comment further on it, as it looks like it could be very interesting.
Like: The second one, with the burning marine, a little more OSL effect off of the fex would have really sealed the deal, off of the chest carapase(riblike things), faintly off of the other leg, and scythe that's lowered closest.
I'm liking the bases though!

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I found these two images to be interesting. I like the posture of Bahphomet (did I spell that right)? I think he looks very threatening the way he is arched forward like that. I like this picture of your elite's Carnifex. The horn being placed in a curved position is the best way to place it, I always do it that way.
I think that for the snipers contest you should work on brightening these models up a little. The Hive tyrant is very cool but I have a great deal of difficulty making out his devourers. I think his best merits are his posture and the way the parts work together. From what I have seen of your models that is your greatest strength.
The painting competions are technically 'painting' competitions but they are also conversion ones as conversions can get you votes. I suggest that you work on your painting for the Sniperfex. I think it would help to brighten up the model a little. You could easily do this with some extra highlights.
I think though that these two criiters are good looking models. I won't be entering the sniper contest as I won't have the time to finish my own Sniperfex that I was planning. So you will be on your own to represent the hive.
Rep for letting us see your cool critters.:party:
High gloss is pretty in the flesh but not photogenic. I like what I can see but it is limited. If you were to do some hard hilights on the devourers etc then they'ld be easier to make out. I bet they're lovely up close though (or as lovely as giant, hungry space monsters get). The flame effect on the carnifex's thigh looks mighty pretty, I'ld have used it on all the chitin.
I don't suppose that you have a conservatory; they make for better photos of glossy things as the light is all over and from far away.
Nice work, I especially like the "skeletal" wings on the Tyrant and the overall colour scheme on both models as I've been thinking of making something similar as I want a mostly black scheme without the usual drab look of flat-black. Then again, I also want to evade glossiness as I don't envision my swarm constantly oozing with slime. =)
