I love the simplicity of your paint job too (comes from all the freaking diamonds I've been painting).
Yeah, I didn't want to deal with tiny diamond. If you get a chance too, check out the painting guide for the Harlequins, I don't think its worth paying for, but there are some good idea for poses in there, plus they do go for super close up shots and you get to see its not as tidy as it looks in the table photos
The dreaming shadow is another masque that doesn't use diamonds, but lots of cool idea's like the masks, a lot of them have patterns of red on white so they remind me of kabuki masks, not a fan of the colours, but nice idea's on how you might mix 3 colours on the models.
Well watching paint dry now... so time to experiment with how much foliage
