Looks good mate, it is hard to tell with a photograph on the varnishing but if you are not happy with it maybe knock it back with some dulcoate and try again?
That yellow looks great and I think you are being well too hard on yourself.
My only slight criticism would be that maybe it wants for a different spot colour? Maybe red/orange gems rather than the blue for at least a couple.
Thanks ma dudes.
I think I'll stick to it as a reminder. I'm going to have a look on how you're supposed to use ard coat tomorrow haha...
You might be onto something with the red accent gems ingtear. I added red to my wraiths but I think the tabard plates are too big of a part and didn't like how they turned out.
But orange/deep red gems might be just the thing.
I was considering doing orange trim for my characters instead of the yellow like my man Finnan who inspired the hell out of me when I first got back into the hobby: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/2190/269370.page.
(Such a shame the guy stopped painting/updating his work) But I wussed out in the end due to understanding the level of work that man put into his models. Paragon of dedication!
I will chuck some red gems onto my farseer to test the waters.
