looks fantastic, though transitions on the hat could be smoother. at least if you want to keep your ultra-smooth-cartoony style :)

thx a lot guys! Glad you like him. :)

@sea.man I'm just a painter. ;) I played Confrontation (ruleset Co2 if that tells you anything) once but other than that I didn't play anything. I enjoy painting much more than playing and it would probably take me years to finish an entire army.
