Mogul Kamir...Biker Style

So I finally completed some painting.  This is my "biker" version of Mogul Kamir...




Not much to say here, I kitted him out as best I could.  This being my first real return to painting in sometime, some of my shortcomings as a painter have come to the fore.  Oh well...I can only get better from here on out.  I hope to have the rest of the squad done this weekend.  And yes, I saw the mold line on the arm when I posted the pic...it will get fixed ;)

Also, I received a few "triads" from Reaper paints.  Overall the paint seems to be a little watery compared to Vallejo.  Not a big deal, you just need to adjust how much you water them down.  As for finish, I found the Reaper to be a bit blotchy compared to the Vallejo, even after a couple thin coats.  I still have a few flesh triads to test out but I think I'll be sticking with Vallejo for now.

C&C is always appreciated. 

The war goes on,

Looks like he's born to be wild!

I really dig it - especially the biker jacket with his name across the back, definitely a nice touch!

Where is the laurel-wreathed skull bit from? That's a cool addition to the model, I'd love to get my hands on some of those for a project I'm working on.

Can't wait to see the rest of the squad - keep up the great work.

The skull is the top of a banner from a WHF kit, I think it Empire Knightly Order.

Great looking mini, Colonel. The biker jacket is a really nice touch.

Agree with the above, it looks great! Love the jacket, and I can't help but picture the "headlights" shining through the eye sockets of that skull.

Cheers to everyone for the comments.

@Kevin: Look closely, the eyes of the skull are "glowing" a light green.
