    I am not sure how one looks either but from what you are doing it looks real good.

    Dread looks good, nice build. :thumb:
    But the fingers of the claw,
    me personally would it be too thin.
    I would fear that they break :eek:

    hi, great photos, very impressive!

    I managed to find the weapons poor great
    including the plasma gun! :)
    The always looks kind of like a bread box.
    Since you can not change much to it, I think.
    Is just an ugly weapon ;-)

    Those look really quite amazing if I say so myself. Like sanginus, I know a bit about dreadnaughts and 40k in general and those are spot on. From what I've seen as far as paper models go I'm not a fan of painted ones but that's just me, but judging from the dread in the back round, I'm sure you can make it look great.

    Seeing how if that was a real world, and in real worlds, people paint things, I think painting, done right, brings the model out. I almost long for the days before printers, when you made models from scratch, and painted them out. So many models are made pre-printed, with people adding shadows for raised effect, they are starting to look like those cheap tin toys that had the everything painted on a stamped out shell.

    Let's bring some realism back!! Outstanding job Arkon!! Keep them coming!!

    Ahh, how could I have missed this post here.
    (perhaps because of Christmas) :twisted:

    They both look really good, well built,
    there have even been worth investing a little more time. :thumb:

    I think we should sometimes present a model painted finish ?

    Thanks to "deadpoolclone" for the bump
