These are somewhat of a continuation from another post, but the important thing is to note the improvements (along with the areas to grow).  

 

Wins:

* Used brown as base color before applying bronze color to shingles of mail.  Better coverage and color overall doing this.

* Used VGC Yellow Ochre to dry brush over the faces and bring out the details.  Good contrast and still liking the yellow/green pairing.

* Didn't put as much time in worrying about the under-sides of armor or weapons.  Saved time and who really sees it anyway?  My work is more or less table-top ready, so good save on time.

*  Kept color palette relatively muted, which gave these little dudes a grungy feel.

* Ink and steel mix worked better on the weapons.  

 

Misses:

* The highlights on the small mail links didn't come out great.  too light?  Too dark? I can't tell. I can tell I just didn't like the outcome.

* White teeth and white eyes?  Too much.  Should have dulled down the white with a little yellowish color or something.  These guys don't use colgate.  They use the blood of their fallen enemies.  

* Eyes with a kind of cat-eye look doesn't fit as well.  Need a better idea on that.  

* Tried to put streaks of steel on weapons - not great outcome and needs improvement.

* boots and dark colors.  I just can't get it right!  It's like books or black should be easy, but to me it just looks like primed parts that didn't get painted.  HELP!  

 

Here they are - not based yet and lookin' like they are in an Orbitz commercial with those chompers.  I might have to go back and wash them both literally and liberally with a brown wash.  

 

As always I'm open to any feedback.

      It's genuinely funny to me how I can't operate in terrain/base mode when I'm in painting mode.  I usually save one day for painting and the next for basing.  I have a TON of minis that need to be based, but I'm just too caught up in the painting to really lock down on the basing.  On top of that, there's a lot of drying and waiting time that I'm way too impatient for.  I digress. 
       
      Here's the Norkers.
      We've got Mack and Axel.  (Obviously Axel is with the 'axe.')
       
      I'm still thinking the gloss coat was a bit much...
