I don't know if 'nice' is exactly the word I'd have used, but yes, I do have plans for them. And if no-one can see anything else wrong with the test model, I guess it's time to go ahead with painting all of Plaguebearer squad 2 then

yanlou Very Interesting painting Svart, i like it, i suppose we'll be seeing you doing something nice with the new plastic Plague Bearers?

Dave T Hobbit The eye feels good to me also.

Apart from distressing his weapon I would stick with what you have.

Midge913 The turquoise eye really makes all the difference man and the shading inks really add a lot of tone to the model. I think it looks fantastic!

Svartmetall So here he is washed and inked, with purple added to the grey and the guts and the eye repainted in Sotek Green, which is a really nice turquoise-jade sort of colour:

I like this eye well enough, but looking at it today I actually think the warm orange colour that was on the eyeball previously worked a bit better against the surrounding grey flesh.

And next to one of the first squad - I think I've gotten the 'gamma level' of the two very disparate colour schemes about balanced, so they won't look too out of place next to each other on the table...

...but any feedback is welcomed.

Svartmetall OK, thanks for the feedback & suggestions guys; I'm making a few alterations now using this as a starting point, pics tomorrow night hopefully

Midge913 I really like the grey/yellow as well and I would echo Dave's comments on the addition of some purples to add some cool tones to the scheme. I don't have much more to add over what has already been said other than the scheme as a whole already is wonderfully unique for Plaguebearers.

This is why colour theory does not make art a simple formula: it only helps with answering questions like, what are my options for making the model pop?

Kreuger I think Dave is mostly right. I think you might be better served adding a little bit of purple to the grey instead of a blue. Something even a little less saturated than this:

And then brush up to a grey highlight, perhaps even with a little stipple of dark spots using argrax nightshade or nuln oil. I'm thinking the little dots might look good over just one base color but it might work well over both grey and yellow as well.
