Welcome aboard bergkonig79! Those guys are fantastic! I wouldn't have thought that Artizan and Crusader would mix so well together. All the minis are painted really well with nice muted colours and very cool bases but what I really like are those awesome facial expressions.

Great stuff

Lovely work!

One minor point. Most of the Artizan figures are depicted in shirtsleeves, whereas the Crusader ones are in the M.41 Parsons jacket. Generally speaking the shirt was a darker olive colour, pretty much the same as the trousers. I suppose you could just say they were faded shirts. Nice work none the less.

Awesome job. Just when I take the step into dipping en masse someone posts excellently painted figures. Shaming my feeble attempts. LOL. Really great work love the tones and how they tie together as a whole.

Thanks for your comment.

For the eyes, first I use W&N 7 series "0" and draw thin black line on the eyes. Then I draw another thin white line under the black line.
Finally for the pupils, I use the 0.03 or 0.05mm pigment pen from Copic (Copic multiliner SP), making small dots on the eyes.
I hope this is helpful to you  :)
