Cheers mate yeah I thought that black is a hated colour for me I find it hard to high light

Two things I'd suggest - one is that I've learned to only rarely highlight black with grey - it just makes it look dusty usually. I normally use a teal-blue, like P3 Coal Black or GW Incubi Darkness, that helps keep the colour more rich.
I also find that magical type affects like that look good with a few 'sparkles' thrown in - some small dots and stars in a contrast colour, followed by thin glazes to add a little colour to the dots. Might be something to try?

Regardless, it looks good mate.

I absolutely love the spectral colour you achieve, any tips? Only area that could use more work I think are the weapons, they're just a bit flat at the moment.

Nice work!

Hi mate cheers , the spectral colour was achieved with undercoating the model white then a 1:4 mix of nihilakh oxide and Lahaina medium then highlighted with white scar, in some of the deeper recesses I used coelia greenshade
