Lookin for some advice.
Today I finished off about 25 or so Kabalites that had been lyin around half painted.
I'm not sure wether to give them green eyes or not.
On one hand, I think it contrasts well with my colour scheme and it'll match other armies I've painted.
On the other hand, would it be too much?

Pic attached for reference (Colour Scheme of Kabbies and 1K Sons+Renegades with glowin eyes as I paint them)





Cheers

If you've got the time do it. Its just another little detail that will add depth to the model.

For tiny miniatures like kabalites, the more detail you can add the better. You can add details for days without it becoming too much IMO. I mean, look at harlequins. Smile

Thanks for the advice guys
For the sake of my sanity I just give my Kabalites pretty basic paint jobs(like all my painting really). But you really can go so much further. Speaking of which, I relaly should do those little spike things in their tabards......
I did go with the glowing eyes, and liked it so much I went and did all the helmeted dudes I could find.





Again, thanks for the replies
