From what I can see, it looks very nice. I can't really comment on anything particular until I have some large pics. If you could get some that would be nice.

Fixed. I can't really tell how they came out, my monitor is busted and everything is dark. As for the actual model, personally I think I can do better, but seeing as how it's the first finished model I've done in years I'm happy with it. I painted it for my brother and he said he liked it more than some Golden Demon entries he's seen, which is quite a compliment I guess, ha...

Now that I can see it better I can say that it looks very nice. Great stuff.

Given how I dislike the model to start with, it's a credit to your painting that I like the look of that one!

The sword is especially good.

I like it, the model..........it has its ups and downs. I can't wait to mix and match him with the new plastic termie lord though.

I wouldn't have used a blue to highlight the black armor but other than that it's great.

Anyone else utterly bewildered by that statement? Either there's a lot of punctuation missing from that sentence or the barman's just kicked you out. Maybe a little of both. :P

Anyway, I'm also not a big fan of the blue highlights, I think shadow grey might have worked better. I do however love the feathering on that sword! Kudos to you for pulling off the sort of colours we all secretly want to use but know won't look right on our miniatures. Hell, it might actually look gay if it wasn't so damn spiky!

Eh, I didn't like the blue either myself, but for some reason I didn't feel like messing with gray at the time. I did try black ink, but it damn near got rid of them so I went back and painted the blue on again. It also seemed like a good excuse to add more color, instead of just black and gold...which looks pretty good for a Chaos-themed miniature I suppose, but... :P

I like the sword, too. I wasn't going to do purple originally, but like I said, any excuse to add more color. I was worried it would look "gay", too, but my brother liked it so I guess that's all that counts, lol. Personally I hate the lightning effect, though...I've never been good at stuff like that.

Thanks for all the comments so far.

Fair enough then.

I disagree, I think you've pulled that off really well. It's subtle and blends in well. ^-^
