I've got some finished Crypt Horrors, my first finished Flesh Eaters and among my first finished Undead (I've also finished a banshee and a cairn wraith, but they hardly count).

Seeing crypt horrors painted with human-like skin up close is really creepy, so mutated :) Greyish spots are scratched paint? I must admit, it looks interesting, only on the first picture, that one on his thigh looks rather sloppy. Still, a good job there! :) The Slann in the background is also yours?

Yep, the Slann is mine. Lizardmen were my first love, but the undead were so much more fun to play that I can be truly said to favor them.

And I agree... I was really sloppy with the wash on a lot of these guys. Some of the grey splotchiness is intentional - in the sense that the paint scheme involves drybrushing Russ Grey over a Rakarth Flesh basecoat - but it's all supposed to be covered with a wash of Reikland Fleshshade, something I didn't do very well.

But, I can honestly say that these models all pass the 3' test. They'll look fine on the tabletop, and I'll do a better job with the next batch.

Welcome! Really liking the coloring on those boils in the backs and the bloody tissue. The only thing I'd suggest is to pay some attention to the mold lines, since they tend to stand out when drybrushing. I'm a bit lazy with them too most of the time with R&F that has 30+ bodies in a unit, but for bigger models and especially single models it goes a long way to check them out with a file.

I know, right? You always think you've gotten the mold lines taken care of, and then... bam! There they are. I'll definitely slow down and try to take care of them as I go with future models.
