  1. "Arrgh, promoted to first mate ain't all its cracked up to be! All I get to do is lug around the Cap'ns dirty laundry!" Nice idea...
  2. The orange came out great! Love the progress on the group.
  3. Where are the 'mechs, or space marines?
  4. Great! You put forth two very different blues. I love the treatment on the sword, especially how it is tied to the staff!
  5. Great work, agree with everyone else that he looks good in Red!
  6. Orcpocalypse!
  7. Darn Razimiri! Nice idea and well executed.
  8. Gross! But it looks just as it should.
  9. That horse is so fast he's knocking basing material right off his base! Great paint job on some traditional heraldric colors.
  10. If he is escaping, I would cut out one dagger and put a sack or pouch or even a severed head in that hand.
  11. Lol, cod-piece! That's classic! I think the bright look is perfect.
  12. Surrounded, confused, prone, the Tengu throws down his weapon and pleads for its life. In a screechy common voice it speaks "Please, no kill, no kill!" Sturgis is up, what are you going to do?
  13. Just waiting on Init from Davor.
  14. Waiting to hear from Davor as to the final item choices.
  15. So, to have him leaping away from danger doesn't make sense to me, since he is an assassin with both wicked knives ready to strike. This professional killer has perfected this death-from-above leap over countless confrontations. This leaves the only possible answer that he has been lying in wait in a dark archway until the most opportune time to leap out and sneak attack with his envenomed Persian daggers, driving them home just above each clavicle, severing each subclavian artery to release a rain of bright red blood. The only problem is the composition of the base/vignette is such that there is no room for his prey, since he is leaping out at the viewer, almost off the base. So, we are left imagining the details and features of his target. Putting some crates, sacks of grain, barrels, etc could add to some exposition of why he is leaping, but it isn't terribly necessary. What could be very effective is to paint half of him in shadowy brown/gray/blue and only the front of him in torch or lamplight, emphasizing his materialization out of the shadows.
