Do you use a texture overlay with your work, and if so can you offer any advice and or instruction on to get like gritty and scratched effect ?(that I've seen on lot of your art)

Extremely cool. Lotta neat concepts here. I am curious though, where does the term helldiver come from? Is it like an ODST from halo, where these are essentially orbital airborne soldiers? Or is diver referring to the aquatic variety? Amazing picture, and entirely worth the fave!

 

Oh, and British SF do rule. First to the party, so to speak. If the description is implying your brother inlaw serves, please thank him for me.

One does not simply worship this image as the awesomness it is, he has to go and comment about how one does not simply worship this image.

P.S.: after analise it again i discovered another british sign on his shoulder shield that its actually bigger and more noticeable than my previous discovery, (slap my forehead again).

After several minutes of analisis and contemplation i coulnt find out where was the british part on it, i looked for 007 stuff, a crown, a tea cup, the big ben, i got frustrated, then i focused my view on this guys rifle, i zoomed and finally i slaped my forehead. Your brother in law must be a very cool person if the character is based on him.

This is seriously impressive StTheo. I've already spotted several fine details that really add to this submission, first two being the Union Jack on the pistol grip and the fact he has correct trigger discipline...
God I'm a gun nerd.

Boy I'll bet it's handy having a special-forces guy in the family.
"So annoying next-door neighbor, you say your flower beds are of superior quality to mine? An interesting thought. Why don't we see what <brother inlaw's name> has to say about that?"
<Brother in law> promptly springs from the shrubs he's been hiding in, places the annoying neighbor in a headlock and whispers:
"I've seen your Cardinal de Richelieu roses up close mate. The mulch you're using sucks."
...
Sorry. Couldn't help myself =D

I think that this may be my favourite of all the armour kits so far, something very barebones, no nonsense and understated about it‘s design, nothing extra or too flashy, but of course is still extremely cool. I think it says a lot of about the character of this soldier. I really like the dark gold and camo pieces of armour as well. 8-)
