    What do you all think? @Crowsfoot it's my first time highlighting skin.

    Couple of things for next time

    1. Always relayer with the base colour after the shade but just leave the deepest recess untouched.
    2. Try to use a mid colour before your highlight to help blend the colours.

    In your example you have gone from shade to highlight in one step which gives a stark contrast, although acceptable for table top you can improve it.

    Not a bad first attempt on the whole ;)

    Yep, the contrast is a bit stark.
    Perhaps also thin the colors a tiny bit more.

    Not bad for a first try though, I highlight skin solely by drybrushing because I suck so much doing this technique. :D

    @NIGHTBRINGER will be happy to know that I played my first two games of age of Sigmar tonight and lost both of them. he will also be happy to know that even though I did lose I killed some pansy fish elves.

    So, how did you like the game (despite losing which is normal for newcomers)?
    Ok for a quick game now or then?

    And of course you don't have quite enough stuff to get into the deeper tactical questions but I think small games are best to just learn the game, even though they play a bit differently to the larger ones.

    I had quite a bit of fun, actually. I think I'll add it to the rotation

    Looking good, I like the colour scheme - but I’d say if you can, the red needs to be broken up (maybe change the colour of the head/faces)

    And as said above - white is hard to pull off, maybe go for a metallic colour or something darker?
    Also if you are feeling brave, maybe freehand a little something on the armour/shields ?
