Very good. You have a real flair for painting those figures! I painted the eyes on one of mine but the tiny dots of the pupils compared to the white of the eyes! I his him in my guards coach so I wouldn't have to paint the others to match!

LOL I know the feeling well MG.

Secret is to cover most of "The Whites Of Their Eyes" with a blue, brown or black dot. Saves giving them the zombie look. If the eyes are still too 'bright' a very light run of almost white, very very very light grey mixed with varnish will tone them done.
