Since skulls are one of the main symbols on the GK heraldry I suggest you practise painting skulls before you apply then on the models.. Yesterday I painted the little sholdershield on the Justicar and I was close to give up when I finally decided to paint a Iron Cross instead (like the Dark Templar symbol) Its quite ok for heraldry and it will do for now. I decided then to practice some on painting skulls and swords until I start working on the models. That way you are more prepared when going live on the models. Since they are so fine looking and expensive I really think they need that extra attention. I will never surrender this task. If the heraldry looks bad on a model it does not matter how well the rest of the model is painted. The sad truth.
