Photo time! Slowly painted up a whirlwind over the last two weeks, and well, here's the pics. If it didn't take so long to paint, I'd almost want to get another one as they're a great unit; maybe down the road.
edit: I'm not sure if images are broken for everyone, but all the posts I read have some weird app that wants to resize the image inside the post, and it doesn't work on my awesome internet connection, soooo here's some direct links:

The links did better for me at least...
Now some constructive criticism... I don't like the missile tips being all white... Apart from that Whirlwind Ares looks very nice and battle-worn! I like that in tanks!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Very shiny too....
Nice whirlwind I like the paintjob
Maybe some constructive criticisme,
The missles could use a little extra, Perhaps just a black dot on top or some kind yellow black stripes thingy to indicate the warhead on top
you like construction work ribbons. that kind of thing.
Also something that isn't quite clear on the pictures, the green windows, is it me or do they seem sloppy and over the normal boundaries of the window ?
Might be an optical thing on the pic though not sure
Hive Fleet Lucanus : 2000 points
As for the windows, they don't go outside the boundary of the normal window at all, but I think looking from the angle of the center picture, the light green on the right hand window looks a bit sloppy which I think makes it not appear to be inside the boundary. I'll have to touch that up.
Ifurita: The large metal areas are supposed to be where cannon fire or another large projectile impacted the armour, so they should be larger than bolter round craters. As to the shinyness, it's boltgun metal, then chainmail highlight, with some fleshwash in the recesses. It will appear much more shiny because it's been 'ard coated to prevent chips. I'm not touching up the 5 coats of scab red it took to cover the model! Thanks for the comment though, I assure you on a table top with photo lights not pointed at it, it's not shiny at all.
