Guild Ball Fishermen: WIP #3

More painting has happened, and now I find myself with a pair of Kraken models completed. Is the plural of Kraken still Kraken? Anyway, there's definitely two of them - and now they're finished.

One is a little more worn and rusted than the other, as I love my rust effect in a bottle and felt obliged to use it on at least one Kraken. My attempts to do skintones still need improvement, as what feels like a super smooth transition is exposed for the lie it is when you take photos at this distance. That's okay, I won't beat myself up over it - just try and do a little better on the next one. Happy with how the Experimental Pants (tm) worked out, and blue glazes on the leather and metals worked out better than I hoped, so there'll be more playing with glazing in the future. It's subtlety beyond my understanding, but I'll continue to try them out.
