Firestarter from Lyran Guards
« on: 28 January 2011, 08:57:01 »
irst from big batch of LGs (8 strong)
Mini been slightly reposed by saw and putty.
Legs bented and reattached, arms sawed and glued again.

Because it's a flamethrower mech, I used new fusion of two different techniques for base - flocking and drybrush with nice results.

In the future I will use this technique again for laserburns and missed projectiles

Really nice work. I like the mod, gives it a little more depth.

Loving the scorch effect on the base.
And a lovely addition to the Guards.

Excellent work.
If you hadn't said it was reposed i wouldn't have noticed it.

I like the tanks on the shoulders.

Love the flamers!  I think I'm going to repaint mine.  I also like what you did with the flamer fuel containers.

I don't really like the new viewscreen.  What was your reason for that?

And the base is great, too  [drool]

One of your best paintjobs, IMO, ST!  [applause]

A lot of great ideas in this mini, flawlessly executed. Congrats!

Beautiful [rockon]

I like the cockpit placement as well.

They say a  barbecue is a throwback to the days of spit-roasted woolly mammoth, if so this is my new grill.

Great job

Nice work but one question.

Is that supposed to be a cockpit viewport on its forhead?
