Started painting my Cthulhu Wars base game yesterday. Not exactly professional, but they will do. What say you?

Thank you! I use Citadel paint, as I also play Warhammer, if that's what you meant. If you actually meant color, I used a bunch, but mostly graduated shading, and floating the paint for effect.

Painting sure brings more bang for the minis.
You could consider using more faction specific colours to differentiate miniatures on the board. Also somewhat brighter colours and stronger highlighting could also bring out more detail in the miniatures. Perhaps drybrushing with lighter color could do it easiest.

What do you mean by "floating the paint"?

And yea great job, really interesting take on Shubby.

Floating paint, and this may just be a term I picked up that doesn't exist, is where you really water your paint down, and apply a few times over for a glow effect.
