Most of the details in place, need to add some (30-40) teeth.

Thanks

I found the seam lines really stick out on the FW stuff when you see them painted. I can't see any here, but I assume you found some.?
Good decision to touch up any issues. Now is the right time. 
^_^ Seems like you got bit by the model monster just like me and in the same way. I can't stop modeling either!  :lol:
Looking cool man. I can't wait to see what colors you decide. I love seeing this kit done in unique ways.
Good Times.

Thanks my friend!
Yep, there were few seam lines but I took them out during second black coat. Anyway, on this "bio" model some seam lines will look ok ;)

I applied first bright layer for armor painting. Airbrush color Model Master Acrylic  - Radome Tan

Thanks

I continued the work with armor painting.
Thanks for Grail's explanations in his thread, I tried to do something similar.
Used sponge and several layers of random painting by diluted acrylic dark brown color and Games-Workshop's brown washes
These are the results:
 









Next will be wash that will unite, I hope so, these several layers...

THanks
Mark

This is looking really cool!  8) I would even consider not doing a wash at all except to just cover any little touch ups. Looks pretty cool the way it is. I really like how bright/contrast it is and how warm the colors are. The wash will darken it so maybe just a really really diluted wash. ? Or gloss clear it first so the wash just settles in the recesses like a pin wash? Just my opinions. I'm sure you will do something cool.
Anyhow, looking awesome, your paint skills are flying along  :-)

Thanks for your help!

Cool, I love the FW nid models.

It's a tad larger than I imagined.

Good start on the painting, the mottled effect really makes fits.
I'm curious what you'll do with the more fleshy parts

Test run on the color for armor, looks OK ;)
The main concern is time, a lot of hand paint with small brush...



See you in few days ;)

Thanks
