I'm really proud of this one.

I did all kinds of crazy crap with pearlescents, fluorescents, metallics, ink and oil washs, that I can't really explain the exact mixtures anymore. It's just bright and super cool.

It looks like mine when I accidentally spray with a glossy varnish.

As his GM, I can testify that it is not laser proof.

If I did that the shine would be insane.

I made a nifty video for it. It's not long, but I had some fun with a rotating stand:

Thanks for the video, the rotation and changing light really makes the metallic paint stand out.

Not to detract from the awesome miniature itself, but I love the edge of the base. Really nice!
