* I've been spending WAY too much time on these models, I think. This was my first attempt at highlighting, but I don't think I would be too far off if I guess that I spend about 10 hours on each of the three non-test models. Will I be able to cut that down by just becoming more experienced, or am I doing something terribly wrong? Highlighting the fur alone took me more than an hour on each model!
** I found it very hard to get the glue onto the spots under the coats of these models. Is that just the way it is, or are there any tricks I could use? For instance, can I just glue the sand onto the bases BEFORE I glue the miniatures onto them, or would the sand not provide enough grip for the miniatures to attach to?
Wow, if these are your first attempt at highlighting then you are pretty damned good. The transision from the deep blue to the lighter is done very well.Really? I think it looks pretty good, not as dark as the rest of the armour and stands out quite well. Just remember Tzeentch is the changer, so different hues of a colour should suit his followers well.I'm also not happy with the way the blue color on the standard came out, so will probably end up redoing that as well
But over all, very good.
those are raelly good dude, maybe add a bit more detail on some of the guys's horns, but thats just me. Very good highlighting on the capes by the way.

Yeah, the horns definitely need some attention.Originally posted by DranZeR@Dec 10 2004, 191

Right now, the additional hand weapons have been ripped off, to be replaced by shields (will probably paint these later this week).
I need to highlight two more of the furs, followed by the boots and gloves of 8 models.
Hope to be done with this unit by the end of next week.
I think you're being way too hard on yourself.
They look GREAT! I wish I could paint like you.
The only thing that might need a bit of attention is your test-model, and that's only because his cape and feathers are a bit too bright compared to the others' (maybe that's something a watered down Black Ink can handle? Dunno) - his horns look great! The same about your banner - I think it fits just right.
[EDIT]His cape is actually darker than the others', woops. Just highlight it a tiny bit more, then. [/EDIT]
those are awesome man, I think u r being too hard on yourself as well, everything about them rocks. (Y)
they are probably about twice as good as my Nurgle chaos warriors

I guess I am being too hard on myself
Thanks for all the positive feedback!
As for the test-model: I think I'll just give the fure a heavy Blue Ink wash, and then re-highlight with Aqua.
Horns: I'll try to find a painting guide on this. I think it's mainly a matter of using brown ink (chestnut?) to paint thin vertical stripes at the base.
Primed the shields yesterday (and while I was at it, my Warhounds, which will be the next unit I'll be working on). Look forward to seeing this unit completed.
