I like the old beakies. I also have an old apothecary, but mind is on a bike.
The ork looks good. Snakebite? I do find that I have less issues with black primer when I'm painting up my orks. As for the drybrushing the trousers, I find that if I'm a bit too enthusiastic, the trousers wind up looking like acid-wash jeans. Successive washes of Badab Black and Devlan Mud (or whatever their new names are) help blend it back.

My really old painting and a new one
Well I said I would post up a couple of my old figures from way back. In my defence the marine looks like it was repainted about 10 times. Back then all I knew to strip them with was turps so if I had tried it I would have ended up with a puddle of plastic
I plan to strip them with something (Dettol seem to be the Uk standard?) and have another go at them. The Eldar Harlequin is a lead figure I think.
Black Reach arrived on the weekend so I put together an orc and painted it. I made a mistake I think as I basecoated white and ended up with tiny white spots I had to track down one by one. Will try black next time, I also drybrushed the pants whch Im not sure worked, will try manually edge highlighting next time.
