Ok, in this update, I am playing with an internal lightsource coming from the glow on my power fist model. I drasticly enhanced the brightness of the glowing power fist, and then used those same highlights to shine on the armor. I made some circular shapes on the helm and edged it onto the edges of the armor, and almsot covered the red of the fist with blue highlight... Did I do to much? Is it just too messy? Ive never done this before... can any one think of any white dwarf articles where an artist did something similar?
I attached the shield onto the arm of the champion, but am not sold on the arm pose. This arm is extended out shooting, rather then drawn in using the shield as a defense. In a way I kind of like this though, it is different from how you usually see combat shields on assault squads. It is almost secondary to his main intention... "screw the defenses... kill that genestealer!"
Any input? At this point, feel free to be uber critical. Any input is ok. It will help me look at the models from different angles. Thanks for all the input so far!
