I really like that - Love the base, and the earthy effects! One thing that really stands out though is the wonky yellow line on the base - Best straighten it up ;)

I love this model and you've certainly done it justice. My buddy has one of these, and i cant wait to see it pull off the sucking chest attack.

Lookin good. I'm curious as to how you do the water on the bases.

Pretty simple, and not 100% convinced it's the best way but make sure it's black, either the bare plastic or painted if it's another colour for some reason, then apply a few layers of thinned down coelia green shade (with lahmium medium rather than water) and brush it towards the edges, in a couple of layers I add in some thinned down temple guard blue around the edges (again with medium) then when it's all dry I spray the whole thing with army painter matt varnish and then go over the swamp water with 'ardcoat (although sure any gloss varnish will work)

I also build up all the bases with green stuff everywhere there isn't water to give the base a more uneven texture and to get the water in the holes, makes basing a bit more expensive than i'd like though!

Wasn't happy with any of the three tuanagh I'd painted so have stripped them, rejigged the scheme slightly and started again

I like em, do think that eyes wouldn't hurt but know that's not for everyone. Basing works well.

Looking good Rob though it may just be the pics but have the two humans above god skin tones on their facial hair?

The hair is done with squig orange and ratskin flesh which is the base for the flesh so there is overlap in the colours but I haven't painted their skin over the beards

Those Beasts keep dragging me in the direction of the Erainn. I wouldn't mind doing them but I have a lot to do with the Kindreds that I have. Need more time and money. By the way, awesome jobs on the beasties.
