Very nice, I wish I could get my yellows coming up that well, and consistent across so many miniatures.

I will show my additional ignorance and lack of sleep by asking who produces the King in Yellow figure?

Painting the yellow was definitely a challenge but seems to have come right in the end.  The King in Yellow is a Fenris figure, very similar to the one they sculpted for the boardgame Cthulhu Wars.

Those are some gorgeous yellows.  Well done.

Looking great! As most people I always find it difficult to paint yellows, good job!

I found that washing yellows with a yellow/brown ink (Rowney Antelope Brown) gives a really nice rich yellow colour similar to what is on those figures.
