Using a melta bomb to mimic the vent shields is pure genius. Killing it with the tissue cloaks, too.

 

Really looking forward to the finished unit!

Thanks mate, I can't take the credit for the meltabomb idea, I saw it on a blog recently, I agree it's an ideal piece to use!

So the glaze has been done and I'm onto the decal stage, my favorite but also the most frustrating stage of painting my alphas. While the micro sol works its magic around the rivets, I wanted to take a quick poll of opinion on a minor detail. Would an additional (perhaps smaller) hydra head on each shoulder guard add to the balance of the decal spilling over from the torso, or would it seem too crowded?

I say, In lieu of the additional hydra's chains would look awesome on those shoulder pads, that leviathan is already looking incredible (I love the alphas when done in this kind of metallic finish with those incredible decals)

Incredible work with those decals. Wow.

I'll echo mateus' idea: Hydra's chains would fill that "blank spot" quite nicely. :tu:

Thanks Capt. glad you think it works. Now it's time for some proper brush work!

Great work with the decals on the Leviathan :tu:

Thanks Kizzdougs, the Levi is such a great sculpt, thoroughly enjoyed building and painting it so far.

As that's a bit of a boring update I thought i'd share the first three recon marines, they need a few details and two need capes, but you get the idea:
