Here is the Fellblade
I've tried to make it look as close to the artwork as I could and I changed out the lascannons for autocannons to make it seem just a bit older

What did you write on the back of the turret?

They look good. Awesome job What gold did you use?
Nice tank there. Do you have a picture of the artwork you based it off of? I haven't had the chance to see that particular piece, myself.
However, please remember that pictures should be no larger than 700 pixels wide. If they are larger than this, then you either need to resize them to fit within this standard, or post them as links. I edited your post to show you what I mean.
i think the only thing that lets it down is the eye draw on the side of the sponson or whatever its called in black pen (right?), the red marking that looks like the eye of horus spray painted on looks like it got off to a nice start, if you finish that eye there (if thats what it is) then i reckon that will make it so much more eye-cathcing
otherwise nice work.
Toll the bell once......
The eye on the side is in the artwork(looks like it was painted in blood)
it does look a bit low and off-center though
The gold was done with brazen brass,then I went over in burnished gold with many layers of green/purple/chestnut ink
washes then drybrushed with burnished gold again

I find the secret to a good gold is in ink washes.
Like I said I start with chestnut,then a thinned green,then thinned purple
Then I go over with gold again then if I want a brassy metal I give a super thinned green wash and If I want it more golden I finish with a chestnut
This technique works for regular gold too just substitute shining gold for burinshed
Awesome, I will most certainly try that. Hopefully it works...I am a pretty new painter...and pretty new to the game so yeah. Any help I can get is greatly appreciated.
Yeah, ink works a treat on gold
also put Brown under it, scorched or bestial
if your doing brass and think tin bitz is too dark then don't mix boltgun with gold, mix shining gold with tin bitz..it looks really dark burninshed bronze and I've only just started using that but I'm loving the effects already
I like this. Agree with what the others have said.
Only other thing I'd have done is changed the autocannons slightly, shorter barrels and an ammo reel at the side. Looks more Autocannon-ie
