Big thanks to all who commented. Feel all warm and tingly inside.
So the model... As stated I've not painted for a long long time, I never liked updating with an unfinished model but I suppose showing it will give you an idea of the general standard at moment.
In general I'm happy with the clothing - the leg areas particularly. The armour is ok, but looks a bit clumsy in the middle of the breastplate.
I think generally my issue is going to be about the steadiness of my hands, something which should improve with time and getting the hang of that.
When I came back to looking through the paints I own, I'd forgotten that I was and am using 4 different ranges (P3, VMC, GW old and GW new) that's before the Pigments etc...
So... yeah. Shall soldier on.
