So the Razorwing didn't go as planned as is now waiting to be redone. I did manage to properly finish my first Scourge!

Currently working on my Archon piece by piece also.

I love your scourge. It's very colourful and the wings are very nice. I think the enemy soldiers will be dazed by the splendor of your scourges, only to be slaughtered by them while they are confused. :D

Edge highlights are my bane at the minute, to small for my eyes to see properly! I might try that, when you say thin drybrushing I presume you mean round the edges?

I'll give that a try Wryce, thanks for the tip!

So I managed to finish my Archon, wanted the cloak to look all glisten-y and horrible like he had just skinned some Imperials!

Great job on the cloak! It's disgustingly awesome. :) The photos are a bit blurry however, particularly the first one.

Hi there and welcome to the forum!

I have to say your mini's are looking great! I've just come back after a similar break. I can sympathise with the wallet pain :D

Really looking forward to seeing more, loving your army so far!
