Didnt know you posted him up Carl . Looks superb doesnt he ?
Gary the face is painted with several different colours .
All by brush . I use Vallejo model color , Vallejo game color and Andrea color paints  .
Parasite brown (game)
Red (andrea )
Flat flesh ( model color)
Dwarf flesh (game)
White (game)
Blue (andrea)
These are then just painted in layers   highlight and shadow added as needed as you would a canvas .
If you'd lime to learn more I do have an article appearing soon in Scale Military modeller International . ;).

Great work by both.
Really an impressive job.Well done.
Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.....
