Thanks all of you for the kind remarks. I have been looking at the skin areas myself a bit and I also thought they looked a bit flat. Its only tallarn flesh washed with ogryn flesh and then rehighligtend with tallarn flesh again. Im not really sure that colour I should use on them to get a more "gritty" and less "cartoony" feel to them though. I kinda try to keep away from mixing colours mostly becouse its such a huge numbers of models I have to paint for this army, so if you have any good ideas of what colour I could use right out of the pot I would be really happy to know

And on a side note, Im gona stop promising to show pictures the next day, Im way to bad at delivering to that promise

There are no friends in the real world, just less hostile enemies
