I've painted this to a high gaming standard (in my opinion). It's made to swap out a normal backpack with a jump pack. He has a crozius and a powerfist for well-rounded combat. Or a holster for a pistol if he'd rather run about with a bolt pistol or plasma pistol.
I intend to sell this on E-Bay soon.
Here are the pictures (rather large so I've linked them.)

I think its a nice model overall, i would say it is gaming standard though.I think the only thing that lets it down is the blck, the highlights arent brilliant and need some work. I really like the skull.
Think this is good? Rep me and click the star

This is what I hate about black figures, it is SO hard to display shadows and details.
I am not sure what kind of feedback you are looking for but I will offer my observations (especially if you are selling on ebay).
First off - I would not categorize this as a high gaming standard. It is more on the level of gaming figure. The reason why I say this is although you have the various details picked out above and beyone the 3 color rule it lacks good definition. The highlighting is thick and irregular. Also things like the purity seals and cloth look rushed and the writing on them doesn't come across as genuine. I think in person it might not look quite so flawed as the larger picture sizes really show off the trouble spots.
Overall I think it is a clean model and not terribly bad - but I don't think you will get that much for it on ebay. Things to look for would be to darkline, shade and highlight the various areas so that they stand out much stronger. This would go for the different segments in the armor, the transition from the armor to the skull, the haft of the weapons, etc. As it stands now the colors tend to transition right into each other. My eyes don't really stop at any particular areas on the figure. I would change the color of the "text" on the cloth and purity seals - maybe to a black. Try to make it look more like writing than scribbles. A .005 pigma pen might make this easier. I would also clean up the little over spills such as some of the bone colored symbols that bleed over the edge into the black. On the black armor I would make the gray highlights thinner and look to add them around the edges of all the armor segments to help set them apart.
Good luck on your sales.
slorac- i've tried to use a small felt tip pen (i duno if its .005 tho) and the ink bleed... any sugestion
waiting for the sunrise!
I haven't had that problem with the brand I use. I use the .005 Micron Pigma pens. It is an acrylic ink pen. That might be your problem. Felt pen ink is different. I picked my pens up at Michaels Art and craft store. I know they can be found at regular art supply stores as well.Originally Posted by F4113N
