Here is my entry for the MiniPainter's Contest. I posted how I painted it in the topic here. (http://www.minipainters.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=757)
Let me know what you think.

Real nice work there, excellent hair highlighting....... looks a little pink (on purpose?), and nice scorched effect on the gun nozzle.......luvving the base as well! Very creative.

Great work! The metalic copper is quite impressive, I've heard it's a bit tricky to get it to work. The hair looks pretty good, but it feels like the ridges stand out a bit too much. It looks a bit like spagetti :lol: (no offense). Hair is quite hard to get right, but there's an article Rackham put out in one of their Cry Havocs that REALLY helps. Basically, treat the hair a bit like NMM but only let the ridges show through when you're transitioning through highlights. It's hard to explain well, maybe when I'm more awake. :|
Now if only the miniature's face wasn't so ugly...

Thanks all. This was a treat to paint and I really like the figure. The hair highlights are really more warm in person. I think it "pinked-out" because of the cool light I shot it under. Shoulda balanced the colors in Pshop.
Hmmm. I may have to try my hand at sculpting a Brom-thing next just to see how it comes out.
