Nice servitors. Only thing is that the bases are so much brighter than the models that the eye is drawn to the purple and doesn't look at the model. I'd seriously think about toning the purple down to a shade that is either equal or dimmer than those used on the servitor.

I agree. As a stand alone base colour, it's excellent - but in this case it does seem to detract from the model a little.

Cheers guys

I probably won't change it for now, as it has been my trademark for the last 6 years... but this is a VERY different colour palette for me... I may consider changing it later on

Maybe you could add some reflected purple light on the underside of the models? That would blend them in nicely.

Well, I don't have permissions to start a thread in this forum. So, we could all post our before pictures at the end of this May thread, as evidence?
