SMG on rem? Anyway i like it!
Bostria when he realises he took all the photos from the same angle again!
Can somebody please tell CB to take pictures of a model not just from one angle? Kiss is cool, but I really don't like face and hair stuff on Bit, that looked so much better on the concept art, that thing cutting her face in the middle is just ugly, hope it won't be too hard to cut that off. And is it just me, or Bit is painted even worse than Nexus was? lots of releases are good, but this just looks so bad compared to Szalamandra or new Kuang-shi. But when I saw nexus miniture in person it turned out to look better than in studio paint, so I hope Bit would look better too.
Look great IMO. Bit shouldn't look a like a innocent High Schooler, she should look like a monstrous entity took an innocent High Schooler and made her into a killing machine.
Reminds me of how Orcs in Lord of the Rings used to be elves.
Here is a facebook album from Studio Giraldez.
Both models can be seen from vaiorus angles.
I love it, thanks gru6y for the link
Bostria has an unfortunate habit of taking multiple "scenic" photos from the same angle and only realising once it's time for publication, he's admitted to this previously and it looked like he was getting better for a while....
You can usually rely on Angel to upload shots from 6-7 angles within a day though, even if he didn't paint it personally.
Okay, I really hated the Bit model until I zoomed in and realized she looks like a stroggos from quake. That's really badass.
I'm still not one hundred percent sold on the pose and model overall, but I like it enough as it is. Might try a headswap with some necromunda chicks though
Did the dossier not show her with backwards bent legs , or am I mistaken?
knee joints going in the opposite direction is what I mean, like with the robots legs
Hard to tell from the dossier, but I'd say no - just that the toes are more alien-looking. And the mini is clearly walking on its toes, so it might involve some transformation.
She is using some high heels, but instead of having a hell-protruding vertical piece, an horizontal piece comes from the point of the feet at an angle.
I can't really tell from the pics, but I think it's some extreme-level combat heels going on.
I think it's a great model and I'll probably be picking one up for my MAF, though I will say in terms of coolness KISS! > Bit
I know it's painted strictly to the dossier, but I think the model would look better if the trousers had been painted a different colour to the overcoat thing, and get rid of the alien hacker moustache she's got going on
I actually like the pose a lot. Is it clear whether that's a pistol or her SMG, though? I haven't spent that much time pouring over weapon models from different factions (not that it would do much good considering how often they seem to change them).
The "alien hacker mustache" actually seems to be a part of a head brace. You can tell from Angel's pictures that it's connected to the sides.
Would have been fucked up if she had the same legs as all the drons + Nexus.
Yep, I thought she had in the beginning, but it's more kinda like she got some shoes that make her look a little more like having "Ur-Legs" (her shoes have two small "prongs" at the side of the tips, even, to simulate the goat-like endings)
After seeing Bit from different angles and closer up all via giraldez pictures, I really like both models. I was hesitant at first about Bit but I am actually quite happy with it.
Seems better when looked from different angles, I might get her (though I still don't know what I'll use her for).
Still, something needs to be done regarding Bit's HUGE forehead, it needs some hair/tendrils, like the ones she had on the Concept.
Zoe + Piwell, repurposed enemy unit... or the Nomad+EC connection thickens!
Sygmaa-Themed Tohaa army, use Bit as some sort of baggage/flamethrower sinc bot, and Bit as almost anything :p
I'm sure you could paint those on, kinda like ko dalis face markings. It's way I plan on doing.
