I have to say that so far I like this mini much more the previous one and I find it funny because it is a smaller mini and should be harder to paint :-)
Is the difference in skin colour between the face and torso made on purpose? Or it is wip?
btw. I have bought Nokjagerin myself :-)

I have to say the larger mini was harder to paint. Have fun with Nokjagerin I am planning to do another 54mm very soon as it was a lot of fun to do. Challenging but fun.

Wanted to lighten the face up some with some extra highlights as when your looking at the fig in person the face is usualy seen against the skin of the chest and arm so it sort of gets lost against them.

it's still a WIP, isn't it? because it seems to be lacking some shading and highlighting. neatness seems to be OK at this stage :)

Hey Neo, it's been a while since you've updated this thread. Good to see you back at it mate :D

Your greens are really rich and full of colour, i like them a lot, the last model especially, your bases are becoming much more interesting.

The freehand isn't bad but i think the skull could be more regular shaped as it's not symmetrical atm. I always try and plan out from a central point with circles to give a regular feel.

Mainly under a rock and other issues. Not sure I will be able to be back with serious frequency but I am gonna try.

Not related to the mini scene before but I was asked by the local hobby shop owner to touch up his Armorcast Titans as a favor. Where all the purple is was an unshaded black and the bone weapons was a very dark metallic again with out any highlights or shading. I was asked to keep it quick and simple as these will get played with and scratched. This is nights 2 work.
