Thanks everyone. The camera was not great but the face is done in layered greys, kinda dark. My friend bought my skitarii army from me a year ago. Kept Cawl to paint and give him for Christmas, he was so proud, he got me the kill team core book, I'm so happy to have it finally. So many things I've discovered about the game having it in hand. Anyhow, I painted him in the colors I had started doing my skitarii so he fits perfect and my buddy wants to pay me to finish the army so, I may be getting busy soon.
As for the base, cork is do fun to use. You can shape it, break it and paint it to look so perfect.
