Showcase, Imperial Knight from House Taranis.

So there we go, My favourite model to paint is done. Lots of lovely smooth panels. Using lots of techniques like preshading I painted this guy in 5 days. likely about 30 hours work in total. He's destined for eBay to fund the next project but if anyone is interested before he hits the auctions drop me a line here. More photos to follow. If anything that is my weakness. My photos really don't do the models I paint justice.
