Kyle did some excellent skin tone work on these models. I needed to paint one additional model to complete two squads of veterans. I tried to match Kyle's style.
While I like how my one model turned out I was not able to match the smooth tones of Kyle's work.
This one model inspired me to paint a third squad so I could try and get the skin tones down. I tried several different approaches and colors but I was unable to get the smooth transitions. I really like how these guys turned out but they are just not quite right.
I really like trying to figure out how other painters do things. No matter how good a painter gets they can always learn something new. I certainly have lots of opportunities to learn about miniature painting.
Anyhow, all this has made me want to paint up a Catachan army. These figures will initially be used in my Cadian inspired IG army but I have enough figures (about 140) to do a full Catachan army.
