I built this base to echo the emperors children dreadnought standing over a dead Sons of Horus marine. I was hoping that that green of the storm eagle would go really well with the purple on the base. Initially the dreadnought stood out too much, so I doused it in weathering powders. I am not sure what to do at this point. The pose is awkward, the painting is now covered in dirt, and all of the cool little wires and tubs spilling out from the ruined casket are hidden. I do like the way the concrete turned out. The embedded mesh is a bit sharp though.
Does this work well enough to keep? It is sufficiently off from my vision that I can't see it. That is the problem with a strong vision, it gets in the way of practical construction sometimes. The key problem which cascaded here was the support pillar for the Storm Eagle. That chunk of clear plastic just gets in the way of everything.
