Griffin, 52nd Shadow Division
« on: 17 August 2017, 00:25:32 »
This poor fellow had been sitting on my shelf half-painted for a loooong time while I was distracted trying to salvage my other Battletech pictures from Photobucket. Grr.  >:( Anyway, I was able to finally take some time and finish him last week. Because of the long delay, I don't feel he's my best Shadow Division 'Mech, but it's a very nice sculpt and was easy to convert to a 6CS by swapping out the LRM launcher with a Project Phoenix Griffin. I do apologize for the low-quality photos also, I can't find my lightbox in my storage room at the moment either. I've been away from Battletech painting too long.

Looks good; face-on pictures (eg. from on the same level as the mini) might work better.

Really nice!  I would have been tempted to use a bigger decal on the shoulder, but your choice is still very well applied and much more tactical ;)

@Hayden: Lol, thank you. Choosing the right size decal is often challenging! A few times I've added one (like my Kurita insignia on my King Crab) and then looked at it later and said, "What was I thinking?"  :-\
