@M_i_J - Nice work as usual. The eyes look fine to me, but if you think your own eyesight is getting a bit weak, go get your eyes tested. Better that than straining your eyes and making things worse in the long run.

I spent most of my free time yesterday and this evening painting flesh tones on some Saxons. Still more to do before they are finished though.

@MIJ nice team, the first one needs a bug on the stone, looks likes she is backing away or about to squash a bug ;)

The speed with which it's possible to do a mostly-black army, especially with my laughably lazy edge highlighting technique, is a very welcome change.)

@MiJ - Awesome work as per usual! I wouldn't say the eyes look particularly googly at all! They look heavy on the eye shadow, which is perfectly appropriate for the minis, but I wouldn't have noticed anything particularly out of whack. I really like how the metal's turning out as well.
2nd that awesome metal work too.
I hear your eyestrain pain. I started painting with grand-dad specs a few years back and now...well...I just wear grand dad specs all day and paint with a x5 magnifier strapped to my forehead on top of those...... You are not getting any younger my friend. Get your eyes checked!

Fully agree re: your eyes. My eyes have always been bad, but I think one of the best hobby investments I've made is a desktop magnifying glass with built-in light. It took a little getting used to at first, but now I wouldn't want to paint without it!

Nice! That reminds me that I should probably base up the rest of my own vikings.

This morning I finished up this fella:

...which finishes up my half of the Dark Imperium box for reals. I couldn't tell for sure until I glued the banner on, but I'd been hoping / thinking that the bigness of the banner would temper the ridiculous hugeness of his ostentatious headgear - and it did! Props also to the Gundam Marker for making the lettering that much easier; not perfect, but a far sight better than I could've done with a brush. If you don't have one, and find lettering a PITA, go ahead and pick one up. 200 yen well spent!

Now I guess I'll do that basing, and get to work on the genestealer hybrids to round out my ASC set.
Feel free to call me Dave!

@ToD - Nice, the heraldry at the bottom of the banner is a great touch!
