Hey fellow raiders! I'm looking for critique on a warrior I did yesterday, would you guys say it's above tabletop quality? If so, I'd be painting another 39 like this. Thanks in advance!

Those pictures aren't the best, but I like it Smile Maybe you could clean up the highlights a bit, from the side and from the back.

Thanks for the feedback, my camera sucks... Here's one without the flash ruining it, maybe this is better for critique:

I second the motion about the highlights. I do think the eye glow (assuming its meant to be a glow) could be improved a little, by making a colour gradient or something like that. Other than that, the model looks good!

Could you recommend some tips, to make the model glow?

Critique..that i can.

First of all helmet. You do not paint bright colors atop of dark colors, it will appear very messy.
You first need to make and intermdeiate layer, that covers dark color ok and that will accept light color ok.

Second the best weapon of a beginner table top painter is washes and drubrishing. Browse internet for drybrushing. You should use wash on a Splinter Rifle.

Third - the model have an appearence of a very thick painted. Paint should be thinned more. About a consistency of milk, maybe slightly thicker. If you dont wanna trouble yourself with consistencies try search how to make a "wet pallet". This thing will improve your painting much.

Here is a book i bought some time ago, it covers the basics pretty well. Read page 16 about Base Colors.
