Your blending is still nice and very eye catching and the monkey looks very cheeky. I like the way that he turned out.

I like the fire wizard as well. My only two suggestions on him are that his hair feels a bit flat and undefined. Some more definition between the strands of hair would really help. Also, and I am not sure what can be done about it now, but the seam line between the front and back piece of the model itself is really noticeable and detracts from the nice red you have managed to achieve in the cloak. Perhaps some liquid Green Stuff before primer in the future would sort that out. I do really like the way your flames came out though and his face is nicely done.

Keep up the good work Khorne!
thanks for commenting

the wizards were abit rushed, as i was working in between homework, and i now regret that

on the second light wizard on the thing in his middle, the colours are meant to cross over, so the top has blue with white trim and the bottom has white with blue trim, to make it stand out.

i could (and probably will) add a thinned down badab black wash on his hair to define it more, then re touch up the white.

the seam on his cloak was perfect when he was assembled, but to paint the inside of his cloak and the torso robes, i had to take his arms off then glue them on again once i had finished painting, and it left that massive gap, might just not glue them on before priming next time.

im glad you liked the face, as its the first time i tryed glazes, by watering down mechrite red and wasnt sure how it would turn out

thanks again

I really like where you're going with these guys, and like what you've done with them. As I'm still unsure what WFB army I want to go for it's nice to see what others do.
I'm now following your blog and this thread

Good work mate, I like how you have still kept the underlying colour scheme whilst making him look original

I like the colour scheme - bright and eyecatching. Good use of washes as well!

Nice Mini's + Rep

I would suggest going back to the banner and outlining the division between the fields with a micro pen... it would give it a nice hard edge to the different colors...

Good job with the fire...
