I love the skin colour you've used, great work. Also love the Dark Angels.

I agree that the weapons are a little flat as large blocks of metal. I suggest a black wash over the top to add more depth.

The blue shoulder pad looks a little patchy to me. It might benefit from another coat.
I'm not sure what happened to the shoulder pad, that was caused by the blue wash, the actual blue underneath was perfectly smooth. As for the weapons, they have seen a black wash already. And thanks, I'm happy with how the base turned out, it definitely looks better than the default/lazy method.

Thanks very much, that was my first attempt at skin of any type.

A big problem I have is my paints drying on the palette about 5 minutes after putting them on but hopefully that won't be a problem any more, I just watched a fantastic little Youtube video on how to make a wet palette and I'll hopefully pick up all the stuff needed tomorrow when I go shopping. I worked it out online and it'll cost under 4 which is great.

If anyone is interested here's the video:

My wet palette looks almost identical, and improved my painting vastly.

Wow, what a difference. I painted for about 4 hours today and the paint only started to dry out near the end, usually it drys out in like 5 - 10 minutes.

No problem, it's really worth doing. It cost me under 4 from Sainsbury's.

That means it'll cost me about 40p from Lidl!

Ah Lidl! I've never actually shopped there, but I imagine there's a bio hazard sign on the door?
