I felt I just had to re-post this image of Angel Giraldez newly painted (re-painted? Not sure if he did the original paint job) Szalamandra TAG from Infinity's Nomads faction. It's just... wow! But even so he mentions that it's actually still a work in progress.
This really goes to show how big a difference the paint job can do to change your view of the miniature as a whole. Seeing it with its original paint job (at left) I was never all that attracted to the model. It looks nice enough but it was one of my least favourite TAGs. But now... just look at it! A completely different feel to the entire model! That black and orange goes together perfectly, and the the non-metallic metal looks amazing. Granted Angel is one of the best painters around when it comes to technique, but this also shows how skilled he is at picking the right colours as well.
