After having received a lot of good comments on different forums and on coolminiornot I chose to follow some of them. Many people made me aware of things I hadn't seen myself.

The things I changed:

Made everything outside the light-cone darker

Painted the nails on the base to be rusty

Painted his boots more dirty

And lastly the shells in the light-cone have been lightened up

So, thanks for all the good and helpfull comments from all of you.

Not bad, but the white looks sorta more like freehand patterns than light reflections. I've never done light reflections but I would say that you use a lighter shade of blue rather than white, I would also say you take a photo of the model before it's been highlighted with the light effect and shine a light onto it from a good distance at your desired angle so you know where and how to shade. Great work though, a well deserved score, congrats!

this is an amazing piece! As said before, the composition is great and "full of life"...As for the light effect, I think everything is perfectly executed except maybe the reflexion on the armor which is too bright to me, and that's why it's not a 10 to my point of vue, but i don't think it's as horrible or ruining the whole thing as said before at all!...So good job on this very very cool mini!

sitting tere like a naughty boy??what are you talking about?!?! he's showing his humanity coming through his god like status as a space marine.he's beginning to wonder is it all worth it-meaning he's having doubts in his own will to fight...he could easily be falling down the dark path of chaos...this piece is awesome,not for the painting (which is good) but for the emotion

Great Job Kaple! I think you did an outstanding job positioning and painting this mini. I'm in the military and can tell any naysayers that the weapon positioning is correct. There are lots of conditions where you would change the position of the weapon (rain, snow, mud). In this case it looks like hard terrain with rocks. You wouldnt want a rock in the barrel. Also, he's in a safe zone, or he would be using better light discipline, so he doesn't need his weapons to be "ready".

agreed no space marine would put weapons that far away from him, and im not sure what hes doin? takin a breather?

Gotta just disagree with Ogrebane, there. No self-respecting professional soldier would place his weapon muzzle down in the mud, due to the threat of a muzzle blockage. Whether the same would apply to a chainsword, I honestly couldn't say.
