It may just be the pics, but it looks like the brood lord could use a little more shading/washes in my opinion. Overall nice painting though.

This a Daily Paint thread or just a thread? either way, those are cool lookin minis :D and I agree, the brood lord looks too one dimensional

I would say throw a light drybrush over your mini's after you do your washes. It makes the models really pop, and acts as a light end highlight.

Also do you thin your paints at all? the base seems a little thick.

Otherwise great looking models!
