How did you made the logs surface? It looks really good and I could use something like that for my jungle bases. :)

I just used the ball point tip against the green stuff. Soon after that, I used a pair of tweezers, scratching roughly and carelessly to create a random and natural look :)

That log looks really good. Did you glue it onto the base before painting? If you did, then you've done a great job getting into the base around the log. Your Crisis Suits also look super crisp. The painting seems very smooth. :nice:

Firstly, thanks a ton for the compliments :D
Secondly, I did indeed glue the log on, but only after the sand was applied.

Very clean work, been great to browse your steps too.

Quick request, could you reign in the size of your images. Thanks man :)

What paint shade if your base theme colour? Or have I missed that somewhere in the thread(!) :fear:

He's finished!!! (Not technically) I want to return to him and redo his head lenses and maybe add some more transfers. I also want to add white to the Tau symbol on his left antenna (right in the image), as it doesn't look vibrant enough.

No one is allowed to comment on the 17 (i think) transfers I added to the model :) I really want him to stand out as the commander, and I also have LOTS of transfers to use!
