that green is a really mesmerizing color! looks great :D

I find it can be a bit nightmarish to paint a ton of gaunts, but it's one of the things you started with it seems. points to you!

Another one of those paint schemes that, if you would have just explained it to me, I would have handed you a can of spray paint to re-base them. In reality, looks great! Oddly threatening.

Hi Poisonfrog, welcome to warpshadow. :D

Nice models so far too. I'm with snapdragon, those colours sound like they should clash, but you've made them look striking and dangerous instead. (Now as part of the official greeting please head over and read the board FAQ's when you next have a chance.)
