its something i've been debating myself.  the aquila would be a nice simple touch, but i also like the idea of the skull and laurels since he'll be my senechal in case i decide to make more. which i do, once FW releases the other arm options they're working on.  either choice, i'd porbably follow suit with how GW did theirs and keep the symbol black regardless of trim color.  the only ones with a colored sigil up there are a couple of the freeblades, who painted the laurels green with a steel skull and parchment stuff.

couple points some might notice; the parchment banners arent painted, and the leg banner is missing.  this is on purpose, as these and the heraldry in the cream panels will be done as the model is used and earns itself glory in the battlefield. 


the photos also dont really show, but the grille slots in the canopy have been cut out, and you may note the 'window' on the hatch was left unpainted. i wont say why, but in a couple weeks you may see photos showing why....;)

painting part is all done, but it'll have little tweaks done to it over time; my big models are never really done since i alter them a little after campaigns i participate in. battle scars, honour badges, etc.

This is exteremely impressive work all around. And while the main focus is always the House Colours, I always pay attention to how people paint the metal skeleton...


Well done sir!
