    Jay's just painted that celt in an uncannily similar style - even the striped trews and tattoos :)

    I like the dude at the top - the colour is great. Is there some blue on his cheek, or it is an unshaved jaw?

          Shhhhh yes it's top secret so don't tell anyone. Im' just trying not to junx it all by bragging and setting myself up for a fall. Lets just say if anything comes of it it'll be the most kick arse thing ever but if not I won't be too surprised.

          After looking at the face painting article in WD I thought I'd try a bit of stubble, I take it it's not really worked out right then? Maybe it could do with being a bit darker.

          These are meant to be good quality gaming standard paintjob by the way.

          And Jay must know about the unwritten law that states that all Celts must have blue and white stripey trousers :lol:

            The problem with the stubble, as I see it, isn't in the quality of application it's that it ends just on the cheeks and doesn't extend over the lips and onto the chin. Or maybe that's how you Limey's beardline works?

            Looks good anyway, and double secret good luck!

              Right I'll apply a bit more grey and see if it helps.

                Maybe the photo has an extra blue tint to it making the stubble look more blue than it is.

                  the stubble seems a bit too strong to me compared with the subtleness of the paintjob elsewhere, try overwashing with some flesh tones to soften it slightly? on and like scott says change the coverage area

                    That's very likely taking into account how I see the world. I'm trying to get the colours in the picture to match how I see things naturally so I have a tendency to add blue levels to the picture because I can see them on the model.
