Nice work. I especially like the eyes. But I have to say that the pole/banner the apostle is carrying bothers me quite a bit. I mean suppose he has to swing that thing? dont get me wron its a very well executed idea i think its just a matter of placement in this case.

Swedemarin, I tried to pose the staff different. But it looked even worse. And I didet want to redo the staff it self. So I had to stick with it ^^)

Finished my 2 spawns, for the boon table. ;D






And the picture of what is done so far!

Nice work! the first spawn really creeps the fuck out of me.
The models are well painted and neat, however, have you considerd using a bit of washes to add some "untidyness" and shadows to the models?
certain surfaces looks too smooth, imo.
EDIT: also, i like the quick and effective basing. really gives a "barbaric" feeling

When I started painting I always put the first layers of paint. Then I was them, and after wards I pick out the details with lighter paints.

I see. then probably the fact is that you need a smoother highlighting. that means to give the rised and detailed part of the models another very neat and slim lighter paint hand. That is imo, of course and would only be a bonus. they are good as they are.

I think the problem with the spawn is the colour choices. It goes from black to dark dark brown then to a pink. You need a colour "probably more" to help break the gap from brown to pink.

Some updates!
Managed to buy 2 rhinos and bikes for my force!


And here he is! My bike lord! I really love how the kit bash turned out. Need to clean the mold lines in some part and we are good to go!
