I recently finished up some pretty generic camouflage Jade Falcons that I'd had on my paint bench for a while. I didn't like any of the "traditional" Jade Falcon looks, so I decided to kind of take Epsilon Galaxy's colors and make the green a little bit less in your face. I wish I had decals for them to complete them :C

The pride and joy of this was the Kraken 4. I hate that model so freakin' much because of how terrible of quality it is as a miniature. It's huge, it has almost no detail, and the detail that it does have is kind of sloppy (looking at you, ATM launchers). I do like the repose that I did on it that really brought it out of it's boring static posture and into something more dynamic and threatening.

Looking good! And I do love what you did with the Kraken. The Reseen is one of the "early 3D masters", and the lack of detail shows, but the repose does a lot! Any chance of front-left & front-right angle photos?

Hint - buy the Kraken XR next time. Far better, more easily converted (it's pretty much a Kraken 2), and I'd love to see your repose of that one!

Ehh, I didn't realize that Psycho's Kraken 4 mod on Camospecs that had built up Ultra 20s and shoulder ATM launcher and I really wanted to have a Kraken 4. At least the top part will be a nice big spot for decals after I get some. Whenever that day may be.

I'm kind of lazy right now, so I don't have a picture from the left side of the miniature, but here's a lower angle shot from the right I have running around.
