I like the way that he is in camo.

Though the horns stick out a bit. (No pun intended) The white is a bit bright...

Nice work Axel!

Overall a solid paintjob, maybe you want to paint the legs again, they look a little paint wary painted. Some highlights on the feathers of the arrows would look cool to.

Kepp it up cheers

very well done!

I think the white on his horns are a very good idea! but as lord siwoc said, you should maybe make this white look a little bit more "dirty" (or darker)

however, his knee is horrible. The color of the skin of his knee is just... horrible! no other word Sad
that's the only critic I would make

Awww I love this model! I wanted that one as my Woodie hero but they did not have it anymore, so I went with the classic "two handed sword" wood elf lord model... now I regret it.

The choice of colours is OK. I would agree with the others that the horns are a little too white. But I will go a step further than the others, by also offering advice on how I think it could be "corrected".

When you paint the different shades on the horns/tusks (as you obviously did), make sure to paint "lines" from the base to the tip of the horns. At each step, make sure the previous colour (=line) is slightly visible by painting a slightly thinner line of the lighter colour over it.

This will create a textured effect on the horns rather than a flat whitish surface.

Oh yeah, one last thing. Avoid using pure white till the very end. Use some sort of beige (bleached bone, arena oscura...) for the bulk of the shading.
