Well, I'm officially off the wagon, at this point. But hey, I still have all the units I painted over the course of the competition so far done, so no bit loss there, eh?

Well this is attempt two I do want to keep the colours consistent so I was thinking green to match gems/eyes but then thought it might take away from the glowing eyes so went for purple. Still not convinced yet though.

I think the purple is much better - The only thing I could recommend at this point is a brighter dot inside the eyes themselves. The point from where the glow comes from should always be the lightest, and currently the eyes themselves have the same brightness as the surrounding area.

Do that, and I think you're there.

The purple on the boltgun is an improvement, it blends well. I'd also agree on the eyepieces needing a highlight to really make them stand out.

Cheers for the tips and comments all I see what you mean I normally go a light green wash but have gone a bit heavy on this one. That'll get redone just 6 more left.

Bit of a progress update for my Miscellaneous units. Finished off my 2 Big Shoota Boys, 2 Nobz, 7 powerclaws and modified my existing Nobz and the new ones so that the PK's are magnetised and are at last interchangeable.
Only the 4 Lootas and my Painboy to go. Bit pushed for time this month, but I'll see what I can do.

4x lootas made up from spares
1x painboy
2x big shoota boyz
2x Nobz
5x powerclaws to be magnetized and used with my nobz units.

I appear to have missed reading this post.

If it's odds and ends toward finishing up existing units, then I don't really have a problem with it

It is just that, apart from the painboy. I only included him because I've entered him into the monthly painting death match, and he's part of my army. The rest are all odds and ends I never got around to finishing and go in with the rest unpainted usually and it was starting to annoy me so I thought I would do all the odds and ends in one go.
