Well, this is with studying and running errands most of the day. I wish i could just paint... (and/or play a game ever). Some progress on the rank and file and the characters -- adding the whites. Not sold on the look for the handbows, may make the cross-piece grey.

The fact that your white armor looks better than the white armor my tau are sporting fills me with rage.

Rather than making the cross piece grey I'd consider leaving more of the crossbow's darker layers exposed. I think they're coming out *too* white.

Hmm. Maybe I will that. I don't kno if I like the armour layers as more visible. Might have to go from the grey anyways.

Personally I like the grey and red of the hydra and tzeentch disc more than the white.

Yeah -- I will see about leaving the armour less white. In the mean time, I've been working on some witch elves -- and doing a bit more on the skin tones.

pre-highlights. I think it's too red-ish pre highlights, but the highlights even it out more. Also, it makes the model less grey/white overall, but I think it goes well with the other colours.

I haven't abandoned this, just had to work on a few other things. I did have time to get my custom cauldron of blood mocked up. Comments and suggestions are definitely welcome. I'm thinking of adding one of the new monster handlers from the Karybdiss/Hydra kit to the bigger base. Maybe some witch elves in the front? (or someone standing IN the cauldron?)

I've been working a bit more on the army -- executioners together, as are two metal hydras, another karybdiss and a chariot.
