A few things. Firstly so far I am liking the color scheme. Second I suggest closing your paint when you stop to take pictures. And third it looks like you don't prime your models. I didn't used to and thought nothing of it, but after I started it made an incredible difference in models appearance.

Besides that I look forward to seeing the rest of the set.

If a child asks how Santa lives forever, simply reply he drinks blood.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

I achually do, I just used a grey primer so it looks the same as the original, I didnt really need anything fancy as far as colors to start.

and my lizardmen currently have black primer.

anyways, updated pictures.



I used Devlin mud for the cloak and Babad black for everything else, I think it looks absalutly Gorgous.

Sorry about that. But it is looking really good for how long you have had it so far.

Very nice, just make sure you base them to finish them off. Also clear all the clutter in the background when you take pictures.
