Thanks for your comments :)

Today I bought something I don't know how to explain but it is, as far as I'm concerned "grass topping" and something to imitate bush. Sorry for no photo. And there are figures to be finished...

Easily one of the coolest armor models I have EVER seen!  :-*

Can't get over how naturally good that 120MM looks on it too, Its really fits well.

That and like to add how "business as usual" it appears with hover armor.
Quality of finish - about a lightyear beyond me.
