    May I recommend painting clanrats in ranks of 5?

    That's not a bad idea. I'll probably do something along those lines. Right now, I'm working on getting some of the Silver Tower models painted for a friend.

    This is my first Kairic Acolyte:

    That is very nice. Love the work on the shoulder pads in particular!

    Yup. Don't always rely on me though. My recall of paint knowledge is not always hyped up on diner coffee lol

    Yep. L-M nailed it! It's a Chameleon Paint. Celestial Azure, I think? I did apply a medium glaze over it though.

    Thanks for the warm replies, guys! Your kind comments really help keep me motivated!

    Good job!
    The drybrush (I think) makes them a tiny bit grainy on the skin but they look pretty cool.

    But what happened to the guy in the last closeup shot? He has some serious warts on his foot! (Ok I guess those are sand grains from the base? You should probably touch them with a bit of brown color then, so it will look as if he just has some dirt on his feet)

    Lol, yeah, these were models that the guy I'm painting them for sent me. He had already put the grit on the base and primed them black. Not too worried about it if he wasn't. And you have to remember, these are blown WAAAY up so things like the drybrush strokes don't show up other than at this scale. Thanks for your comments though!

    They look good and I think your doing a pretty good job for the time taken.

    I like the shield... that metallic bluish theme you have going on works really well.
