Darkest Africa No.6

Well, I finally finished the Copplestone Darkest Africa/Dinosaur Hunter figures.  It was the first time that I'd really tried painting large figures using the, what appears to be, now standard three stage process, i.e. laying down the dark shade colour, then painting in the main colour (leaving the deep folds and shaded areas) and finally picking out the highlights.
For my first attempt at this technique I think they've come out not bad, although perhaps I should have created a greater contrast between shades.  I had a bit of trouble with the eyes so just approximated these..
I need someone (or somethings) for them to fight now and will be working on that over the next few weeks, assuming I don't get distracted onto anything else.
