Primarch Angron by Solav Primarch Angron by Solav
Come son's of my own, let us March to glory and battle. Let us bring forth the meaning of combat to those worthy of our blade and our strength, our strong heart's and our desire for Violence in the name of our Emperor! For the World Eater's are the hell hound's of WAR!!!

Let's start with the base. The way that the blood was done under his boot made a lot of sense. It really brings out the idea that Angron had just cleaved this loyalist before stepping over him and onto his next target. You really got that part clear, especially the little spots of red on the rest of the armor. You also really got the stonework right. It looks very realistic, and if I didn't know better, I could say you used an actual rock as your base.

Next, the armor. I think this is where you really excelled. It looks like true metal. I'm not sure if the shine is the lighting or a non-metallic metal technique. If the latter, that's even better. As much as I'm not a fan of NMM (It feels a little too overrated and a weird attempt at being a fancy painter), I do respect the results if done right. That aside, I do also really think that the breastplate was perfect. It's dark, it's gritty, and it looks bloodied. Despite that, though, I was still drawn to the leading shoulder. I'm not saying that's bad, though. The pauldron was really well done, and easy on the eyes, allowing my eyes to wander elsewhere and see what else was on the model.

The axes, I think they were well done. They seem a little simplistic to me, however. Perhaps a little more blood on them (This is Angron after all), and maybe use a different type of metal to show that these are not ordinary axes, but rather Gorechild and Gorefather (if I remember the second name correctly). As it is, it comes across as an almost wooden axe with a simple iron/steel blade. Given the way you did it, however, the paint job is well done, so don't get me wrong about that.

The head is where it really got awkward, and perhaps my only major complaint. The war paint on his face seems a little off, and comes across as almost feminine where it goes over his eyes. The eyes themselves look unrealistic, likely because of the "eyeliner". I say eyeliner because it's just so dark and really makes the eyes pop out too much. I can see you were trying to go for a "wild" look, but perhaps a better option would be to simply add a darker skin shade around his eyes instead of a straight black. However, I honestly cannot complain too much. I've seen this model painted quite a lot, and the face is always the hardest part. I think you made a very good attempt!

Overall, really good job. I can tell this took a lot of work and effort to get right. Keep up the good work!

This model looks great, Forge World really has a knack for producing products that are just visually stunning. So many details to hone in on naturally.

Anyways, on to the critique. The previous post had talked about the blood and the armor and unfortunately I disagree on the blood. While I understand what the effect was meant to be it just doesn't look 'blood' enough to me. The axes also don't seem to compelling in terms of blood spatter either. If you have a chance look into a paint called "Tamiya Clear Red." This paint will really add to your blood effects and truly take this piece to the next level.

The armor looks great, the only real issue I have with Angron himself is his eyes, they seem odd to me, but all things considered (eyes are tough) he looks great. As stated above my only real critique with him would be working on his axes a bit to take them to a more realistic/believable level. (Right now they looks mostly dry brushed).

The base does look good, the dead marine looks great as well. If I recall isn't there a world eater that is supposed to be flying away from him missing an arm as well?

Nonetheless, not a bad model, I hope my suggestions have been helpeful.

The Face reminds me of Sigourney Weaver from Ghostbusters. Maybe a little too feminine to be Angron. Fulgrim or Sanguinius maybe, but not Angron.
