Default Repainting... to highlight or not

Currently repainting this due to work i can only work on it about 45 min to 1.5 hours a night .. The vines are base of gob green with emeraldgreen shadow and scorpion green highlight the thorns are small thinking of leaving them plain(snakebite leather) or hitting them with a touch of bleached bone. Due to over exposure you can't really see the highlights on the vines and the corners look rounded on the teeth horns but thats about the best i could get...

How did you DO that freehand?? Wow...


I'd highlight the thorns. But just a tiny, tiny sliver.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

I know, it was a joke
I don't really know what model it is, but I think it's a jetbike (Eldar or Dark Eldar, I forget)

Yeah, its an Eldar Jetbike or something, it shows it in a piece of rogue trader artwork copied in the new Eldar codex.

That's amazing!!

I could be mistaken but I believe that model is an orignal Epicast-Wave Serpent way back in second edition, I am about 85% sure I have not seen one in about 7 years.

I would defiantly highlight it. Use a mix of 1 part codex grey to 2 - 3 parts water. That is how I highlight all my tanks.
