Sorry the space marines came to there due date with no new pictures. :( I have the next 3 to work on for the hobby shop owner however.
WIP on a project piece doing for laughs. I plan on leaveing the base plain as I have a base up coming that is a little intimidating.

The colours work well together, i like it alot :D I think some of the highlights look a tad powdery/chalky but a very nice piece. I can't wait to see what base you have lined up for this one :)

good jobs on the color scheme and damage on the armor.
I think some more sharpness would help the miniature a bit, and maybe a bit stronger highlights too?
not sure, because it can be something about the photos that makes the miniature look so soft and muted, but I thought I'd share my opinion.

good job here.

@arctica the base probably will stay as is. Though this viking will have more things on it dry ground. mud, and snow.

@mahon- Always appreciate everyone opinions. He looks soft but not necessarily muted to my eyes here so I will try and edge things a bit. When I have him sealed I will take the next set of pics.

Very rough Wip and yes I did the general lining for the plaid while my eyes were fresh. 40mm sculpt but doesn't have the details at all that I am use to. Gotten a bit spoiled on some companies.

Overall the tartan looks good, but all three colors are a bit dark so nothing really stands out. Maybe you could try to brighten the green or the red lines to make it a more clear pattern. I know this is difficult, I've done a few tartans on some of my BF's trolls and somehow one looks better than the other... I always found out afterwards that up close everything looks decent but from a distance you really need contrasting colors on the cloth itself and the lines to make them visible. Even white or bright yellow might help :)

or Pink? :bonk:

I agree it does feel very dark, maybe bringing your highlights up might help give the model a bit more contrast, like you've done on the sleeves. The skin looks pretty good but i feel the metallics are a little flat, maybe applying some glazes of darker colours to create darker shades may give some objects such as the blade a brighter colour. The use of a lighter tartan colour as Bren suggested would probably work.

The beard i think should be a focal point on the mini and personally i love bright vibrant colours so i would try and get some areas of the beard up to almost a white shine.

The bounty hunter guy is looking pretty darn good, the metallics are nice, but what really stands out for me is the blue and the battle damage. I feel the red could possibly do with a further highlighting to some of the upper folds etc. but it's going well so far :) :clap:
