Spoils of War - Mordheim Beastmen Raiders, part 2
Unlike a lot of lighting effects, Wyrdstone is generally a pretty dark color, despite glowing. So, you can't just make it blended up to a brighter color. This is the sort of area where I've learned to use heavy saturation to effect. One thing to do is play with darkening the area around a spot to exaggerate the brightness, but it's a really dark green. So, instead, I desaturated the area around the green, so, despite being a similar value, the saturation made it appear brighter.
Someone with more formal training than I have would, I'm sure, be able to give a technical reason why that works, but I've mostly learned through experimentation, so you get a long-winded explanation instead of some fancy but more opaque explanation.
