Speed, speed, speed, speed, SPEED!
the main train of thought on this little piece was to imbue it with the idea of dynamic speeding around. i tried to incorporate this and a hint at a yin-yang shape with the base.
the Vyper itself i had to convert slightly as i never was that comfortable with the front shape
of it.
to enhance the viper/snake image i included the frontal "mandibles" as well as a fitting
underslung weaponry. i was not sure about the paintjob, wanting to emphasize the "speeding" but in the end i settled for the snake-deco, as the name of the thing befits...
please let me know what you think!
thank you for looking!

Gotta give it a ten. It's nice to see a truly original piece and I really like this one. I agree that a "shoreline" would enhance the base, but seeing as the splash is the background to a superb fig, I can't see that it detracts from the mini itself. After all, this IS coolMINIornot, not coolbaseornot, Right? CHEERS

Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Great idea, superb execution. But I'll deduct 1 point from the deserved 10 because the base is a little... minimalistic. You could add some pieces of stone to it, as well as creating a water effect on the whole base. But excellent work anyway.

Great idea. The wave is a really impressive idea and really well executed.

This is superb. You've managed to create 'movement' in this piece.

Wow! Thank you all for your comments, i really had not anticipated the positive resonance! but to business: the water effect really is made from woodland scenics, in germany distributed by HOCH, a model railway Scenics producer. i cut out the floor from clear plastic (a CD tray had to suffer for this) and glued two strips of thiner, clear plastic (i think from a large mini blister) on it, roughly cut into the splash wave shape. then it was heavily covered in aforesaid WATER EFFECTS from Woodland. ah yes, when you use it, better use some thin layers as my "much helps much"-approach resulted in a massive Hairdryer treatment as the stuff wouldn´t get clear otherwise (it is white in its original form and clears while hardening)...this in turn led to the whole thing almost melting away and getting a slightly yellow hue at the tips which i had to paint white anyway to achieve spray...
