Anything positive or constructive I can provide is better off somewhere other than here.

I like the use of spot colour on the antenna.

I suggest thinning your paint a little more for the highlights as it will give you more control.

Thanks, I use the spot on the antenna to distinquish squads since sometimes with a bunch of dudesmen it can get tough in a group.

Been having a bit of trouble with thinning the paint, whenever I do it just goes on transparent or doesn't adhere well the the edge for the highlight. Thinking about trying that new edge paint they came out with.

I would like to improve my painting abilities, but I'm pretty happy with these at least for table top play uses. Not going to win any golden daemons any time soon of course XD

The DCA are Demon slayer assassins from Titan Forge. I really like the models but they are 30mm and the weapons they come with are crap.

The edge paints aren't specifically formulated for edge highlighting, they're just very light colors. It really isn't worth purchasing the set. Your blending looks pretty good so far, I would love to see you blend the robes, rather than hardline them. (the extremely bright edge highlight over a very dark base)

What I do notice is your lines are too thick on your hardlines, the best way to fix that is to do your hardline with the side of your brush, rather than the tip.

Girlpainting, on Youtube, has a great video tutorial for how to thin your paint to the consistency you need to accomplish what you're going for. I can't find the specific video, but many of her videos are very helpful to improve your painting. You should take a look.
