    I can't give you tips on eyes since I also suck doing them. I'll try the thin Sharpie method next.
    Your army looks pretty nice so far!

    I have read from people that it works, so yeah if I have a good day I'll probably won't shake too much and get a nice slit or small dot pupil into an eye.
    I'll test it on some spare heads soon.

    A fine point sharpie works on skinks, :wideyed:
    although you might have to find an even smaller artist pen for Saurus and their squinty eyes. :inpain:

    For Saurus I am happy when I hit the eyeball! Pupils aren't even a question. :D

    I find if you black out the eyes and then go for getting an off white into the corner you end up with more realistic looking eyes, and you don't have to worry about painting the dot accurately, or in the middle...

    ^ this is actually the easiest method for eyes but for saurus and skinks you don't really need a pupil as they look more menacing without them.

    A sharpie pen works as well but make sure you get 0.2 size, I have this set it's great for allsorts of stuff.

    Agreed, nice pick for the bases.

    Also nice use of a chain for the carnosaur, is that just some craft jewelry chain from a hobby store? I have seen people use tiny chain for chaos warriors of Black Templars before.

    Just a cheap costume jewelry chain the rubbish thing they gave me in the box broke and it wasn't worth repairing the chain might be a tad to big but I'll use it for a bit and see how I feel

    I agree, that is a very unique yet recognizable Astrolith Bearer and the Basti looks good as well!
