Looks good to me, the green is very rich...what did you use?

The scheme is quite dark, but the light flesh and brightness from the base contrast well..

With a quick wash on the skin and the bow i'd say he was table ready and the unit would look very nice.

To be honest I wouldn't be the best person to answer that, it's been a long time since I've painted caucasian skin.

If you find the flesh wash too dark have you tried watering it down?

yeah but i find it goes orangey-yellow. And at the risk of sounding stupid, it doesnt seem to 'stick' when watered down
The other option is to put it on at full strength and then paint another layer on top, leaving the wash showing in the recesses.

As for the sallie chap, I'd have to give plus points for not painting his skin pitch black (due to a personal bias) :wink:

The green is very strong and for the most part it's very neat all over, for a gaming piece i'd say he looks pretty spot on, but if you are aiming for a higher standard there's a few things i'd point out.

As the count said it's missing the highlights that your wood elf has, there's a bit of green that's seeped onto the chest eagle, and the gold itself looks over shaded. The backpack looks a little flat without any highlighting, because black always sticks out the worst without highlighting.

Hope this helps!
