Thanks all, appreciate the encouragement. If I knew how to multi-quote, I would! The best way I found keeping the highlights straight is not to worry while painting them, funnily enough, trying to get them perfect just slows things down. I generally tidy up mess twice per model midway through and again after the last highlight, remove a lot of the thickness of the highlights that way too. Progress this week.
Need to find a way of taking better pics, might try the gw lightbox advice.
3 reavers, enjoyed these quite a lot. In both sets of three, the one with the red markings has the special weapons.
Lilith (at last, had this miniature since release) - leader of the cult only to come out for bigger games (and the first couple I hope to get in on release day). Have to love the universe's greatest gladiator. Struggled getting half reasonable pictures of her. Tried to keep the facial highlights subtle to avoid manface syndrome. Couple of splotches on the basing need cleaning up but she's basically done.
and work started on a Succubus, which is the miniature I've possibly been looking forward to most as she'll be leading the force the majority of the time.
