Just got around to putting together the trygon and giving him a paintjob. Do you think i should give the bone coloured parts the wet look like the inside of the mouth or gradient it down to dark brown for the weathered look? Need your inputs plz.
EDIT: I should have said originally the model uses the smallest set of talons in the kit as the mandibles, as i didnt like the biotech feel that the trygon variants had, and was trying to stick clear of small protruding parts. I used the Mawloc lower jaw but cut the spines back to the first joint. I thought it did need some protrusion but not as much as on the vanilla loc. The last big change was covering in the spines on the back, i decided i would like to keep these as solid bone structures more like part of the skeleton that is exposed, Which is why its contrasting colour to the carapace colours. It was hard not to make up a tail variant, i decided to use the mawloc tail for my flying hive tyrant.

That's a beautiful paint job sir! I think you should keep it as is. Well Done.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
Wow. Damn sharp. No alterations necessary!
Very nice work indeed.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

That's a very well painted Trygon, I like the scything talons being used as mandibles. Reppy for you.
I think that your Trygon passes muster. However if you want to do more I think the weathering effect sounds better than painting the bone all wet. The bone is a part that probably wouldn't be all gooey so the weathering will work better. The weathering will also add more variety in the paint job you've done. Go with the weathering effect I say!
Thanks for the input guys, its hard to call a miniature finished now days after watching all those brilliant paintjobs around. Ill sit on it a day.
I also love the scything talon mandibles, i wish i had thought of that. i didn't like the generic trygon prime ones so i used the mawloc mandibles but cut the long bone things off. next trygon i make im using your idea for sure. nice paintjob too, have some rep
Ahhh i had totally forgot that i did that differently, i have listed the variations in the original post. I love the new big plastic kits, makes conversion half the fun.
I like it, well done all around!
I'd say go with the gradient route if you want to alter the bone/talons. However I'd advise against weathering down to brown. The grey/white looks really good with the green/brown coloration. Altering it to brown would take away from the contrast that makes the model stand out.
