V nice! I love the top mounted cannon and the space marine up front. How in the world did you do the mech claws?

Coming along really nice.  One question; some of the detail seems a little soft for your excellent sculpting skills; ever try using brown stuff?

Thanks for the welcome... I've used Brown stuff, but since I have a limited supply of it I've resisted to use it...

The mech claws... you mean the left arm? I just sticked a bit of green stuff to the plain dreadnought finger, shaped vaguely and sand it when dry...

I'll post something of the painting advances when my friend starts painting it...

*Engage drool factor*

Sculpting looks even better with just a bit of paint on it, should look brillent when finished.  :icon_razz:
