Plaid goes significantly beyond my abilities. I look forward to seeing this finished. Good work so far.

Thank you so much!

I owe my plaid superpower to years of playing/painting a Celtic themed Space Wolves army. Each squad had a different tartan on their pinky-nail-sized tabards. Datsue's skirt is a bit more difficult in that there are more contours to the garment, but the basic process is the same.

Man pretty much everything in here makes me feel embarrassed to post my finished products lol... Great job everyone!

It's like any other skill. You have to love the work in and of itself, dedicate at least fifteen minutes of every day to it, and be diligent and careful in how you practice.

The concept of natural talent is mostly a lie. More accurate to call it discipline and disposition. Practice, practice, practice... 

And thin your paints. :)

@so_diogenes What ringsnake says is so true about practice....and thinning your paint....

....most importantly you have decided to paint your crews and as a result they will be individual because you chose the colours to use and they will be 100 times better than grey plastic

@Viruk I'm loving the eyes of your models. Any tips?

@wizuriel avoid using pure white, something like bleached bone or any slightly tinted white works much better. As for the pupils - this is just a matter of practice, even after years of painting I sometimes need a few attempts to get the eyes right

@SoylentRobot Henchmen with a soul stone cost of 0 are valued at 13ss minus their cache value. So your Vik of Blood (which I believe has a cache of 3) counts as a 10ss model! How's that for a bonus?
