Awesome execution on the obsidian rose colour scheme, the edge highlights look really clean. Don't worry about how long it takes, with a new scheme it always takes longer. I would say it is time well spent.

I thought of what sounds like a cool idea to distinguish units. The plan is to have the sergeants banner and each units "skin loin cloths" to be a different race's. For example, of the "skin" and the banner for the next warrior unit will be orky green...the following will Tau Blue. This should be subtle enough, that if I wanted a large unit, mixing "skins" should still make sense.

Those look great man! What color did you use for the skin? I have been struggling with mine and could use some advice.

For the skin robes:
Chaos Black (from the primer)
Bestial Brown
Dwarf flesh
Eldar flesh
Bleached Bone
skull white
...then scab red for the blood...although, I might try out the GW Technical Blood paint if I buy some.

The skin on the warriors themselves:
Chaos Black (primer)
Bestial Brown
very watered down Dwarf flesh for highlights.

I water most of the latter paints down a bit and sometime put multiple layers of the same color...that's why it take me forever to pain :-)...super happy with the results though!!

You have a lot of poison going there. How about a new codex sometime?? ;)
