Thanks Soria, last night I started working on the Tactical Squad and the Lord, getting more done on the latter than the former.

you're miniatures look awfully dark. Its either the lighting, or no highlighting xD

I would suggest you take whatever the base color is. Add some yellow/ or white,

and touch up the edges.

Or you can layer it. Meaning you just take the lighter paint and paint over the large flat areas, leaving the small creased areas with the base color thats dark.

Either way :D good start.

Btw. You have A LOT of miniatures to paint. XD

good luck

Its been a while since I've posted here, life has kept me busy, without time to paint.

Still, I've gotten a little bit done.

The first of many Deathwing squads

I still need to figure out just how I'm going to do the blue on his power sword, but otherwise I'm fairly happy with how they turned out.

And the little brother has been painting a few goblins.

Decided to take on a bit of a challenge this month, and try my hand at a painting deathmatch in an attempt to get myself to paint better.

Nice paint scheme! Have you tried to pick out the blue highlights in a slightly lighter color? I can't tell if it's real lighting or highlighting, if not the picture is a great template. If it's highlighting, WHOAH!

I wish that was all highlighting. There is more definition to the blue in person, but I'm a terrible photographer. And thanks about the scheme. I literally chose it out because I started painting my Dwarfs right after finishing my Cygnar.
