Farsight Enclaves: Coldstar Commander

As promised, this week yields a Coldstar Commander!

I already have one of the "leaning" Finecast commanders, and so decided to make this one in a flying pose. It fits the armaments if nothing else!

This dude is tons better than the Finecast version! Nice and detailed, he also has the capacity to be posed in lots of ways. I think, in hindsight, that I should've posed the forward toe a little more to the ground, but I'm still quite pleased with it.

I went with the standard Farsight scheme, in-keeping with the rest of my army. However, just because it looks awesome I added some "racing stripes" to the rear and side fins. I used Tamiya modelling tape to mask these out, and then added multiple layers of Ceramite White to achieve a nice clean finish.

Another view of the rear fins.

 And yet another view... Had enough yet?

The end of the Farsight project is in sight (get it?!?!). I now have a handful of drones and two Broadsides left to paint...
