Painting Chewk, the color guide

After much thinking I finally painted the Chewk like some kind of prawn man and here are the results. I opted for saturated colors since I believe they work best for such smallish scales, making good contrasts.



Never painted a 10mm before and its hilarious to be honest, specially if you paint it like a normal 28mm.
