    Group shot of the (momentarily) leading unit in the yellow tricots...

    The bluish tone of the standard bearer come along a little strong... it's international but I think it could see another glaze of green...

    Now that I finished the condoms on their back spikes I go the idea of painting all their spines in one color... bad ideas... always late...

    Added another highlight of flash gitz yellow mixed 1:2 with white scar... tried to only do the edges or really raised parts or tips... paint drying in the tip of my brush made it not an easy task... had me washing the brush every second time I took some paint... took me 2-3hours to get the job done on 2.5 warriors and the musician...
    Results:

    Also a question arose in my head... which part of the standard should be made red-gold-green...
    Reference:
    20171125_000845.jpg
    First thought of the small square/rectangular gems on the side... but on the champion I made the feathers on his shoulder pads in rasta tricolor...
    Reference:
    20171125_002632.jpg
    So maybe feathers? The big ones on the sides or the two small ones on the backside? Maybe do both?
    Any suggestions are appreciated! ;)

    These three guys are on the way to bring the yellow unit in a leading position... just some detail and the metal parts to cover up...

    Momentary score:
    Purple guards: 2 finished models
    Yellow warriors: 0 finished models
    Purple knights: 0 finished models
    But it has to be taken into account that the overall progress is much better on the knights as most of them are nearly done... and also you only win at the end of the race...

    Colorful command...

    Still some stuff to be reattached to the shields... and... don't know if you noticed... I exchanged the spikes on the standard for more feathers... those will be also red-gold-green... (I know it's actually yellow... but it sounds nicer... and it's heraldic and therefore ok to call it gold...;))

    I like that model.
    It is ridiculously cheap but fairly detailed, with only a minor amount of casting flash on the scythe.

    I have it myself. I am just sad I kinda ruined her face with my lack of painting skills.

    I like the sculpting, too. I'm thinking about getting the 'original' version one day... the casting quality of the reaper bones is sometimes a bit... not the best... but it's damn cheap so for the price it's great.

    Not sure I like the grey but it does a GREAT job of accentuating the shapes of the body.

    I wasn't sure either... but now I think it was a good decision... didn't want normal skin...

    Started highlighting the cloak and changed the color of the skirt to zanduri dust *basecoat and wash with agrax earth*... again not sure if I like it... maybe that I will go back to the former look with all clothes in the bright color of the cloak *kislev + flayed ones flesh 1:1*...

    Comments welcome! ...and please don't hesitate to pick out the details where you think I should improve something...;):artist:
    Oh... and yes... I should have done something about the mold lines before I started painting:banghead:... that's what I have to criticize by myself... ;)

    I think I liked the other cloak slightly better as well.

    ...and I agree that the grey skin makes her look more Vampire like.

    With the grey skin I think you should have a darker cloak to frame the shape of her more, just the inside needs to be darker maybe crimson lined that would match her lips and make her look attractive but deadly.

    Outside of the cloak nearly done... just some very final highlights ...

    Next problem: hair color... grey looks good, but I wonder if something else might look better... Will decide after doing the skirt... which looks really dark atm cause of the earth shade... possible hair color: black, brown, grey... anything not red.. .

    Skirt is done... now just the red lining as last of the bigger surfaces before going into detail... that would be her skyte, the little skull ornaments on her hips, gloves and the skull in her hand... and not to forget this ribcage wondewonder bra she's wearing... and her hair...
