I need to build a 5-man Thousand Sons biker squad so i'm hitting the concept art. I need feedback on my idea.

5 ornate flying discs (scratchbuilt discs of tzeentch basically) outlined with runes. The two "bikers" that have the basic TL-bolter have the foremost sigil be painted silver. The 2 special weapon "bikers" will have a different sigil painted in a mix of bright red/blue (to signify flamer/melta and plasma colours) while the champion gets a slightly more ornate disc with a unique sigil. This is to be able to know which is which by looks, while the available army list will show what armament they have as counts-as.

Thanks for the compliment, it's much appreciated.
I've messed with pigment powders and such before, although I'm clean out right now, and stuck with age-old GW paints. My usual MO for flesh involves starting with a brown and working my way up from there, but it just doesn't look right on zombies - much too, you know, healthy looking.

Looks alright. The tongue and the red field sort of blend a bit. Not sure if that works but it's a matter of opinion.

Is the tongue supposed to be fleshy? If so, you might want to paint over that black line.

I would suggest taking some dark brown or black (or mix a little of both onto a palette), dilute it into a wash, and then go over the bolts on the shield rim. This should gather the wash around the edge of the bolt and make it pop out a bit.

That's about it, I guess.

Thank you as well but I like doing metallics myself, I prefer the shine plus I seriously suck at NMM and techniques that require actual light-knowledge. My highlights are always just "EDGES".
