painting outside my comfort zone

Now my lead pile ain't that massive but I had a few moors left over from my crusader project. I decided to make up an impetus base (current ones are on 60mm squares).

I went for the "comic book" style. Normally I find it easier to do subtle, natural stuff but I want to learn to paint more boldly.

Next up the Saxon impetus base!

A nice looking base.

Nice, I like the pink/purple colour, it breaks up the colours of the unit well.

Excellent work

It may be 'comic book' style, but it looks good! The colour scheme really works and would make this unit stand out on the field.

Looking good - great contrast with those colours.
Not too cartoony looking for me

The figures themselves are quite comic book so i think high contrast painting is the way to go. Thanks for the comments!
