    I remember that as well, back during the campaign.

    Beautiful paint job for a gorgeous figure! I'm so tempted to order one.

    It's already looking nice! I'm looking forward to seeing how you tackle this.

    Chibi Skin

    I paint them with less shading on the skin and hair than normal figures. They end up much more "flat" than fantasy figures, kinda like a cartoon character or a prepainted anime figure. I still shade and highlight of course. Save your high contrast work for stuff like weapons and goggles. Watching a few youtube videos on painting chibi figures is always a good idea. They really helped me understand how to approach chibi figures. Here's a couple of super quick tutorial links. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS26iurd-NY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHnuS4qF7A4&

    Painting Large Water Elemental

    I also recommend a brush on sealer, but I would not use a fully matte sealer. Gloss sealers and mediums can make the clear models look even more transparent than they look straight out of the package. Lahmian medium is a matte medium. It will work, but if you happen to have some Citadel Ardcoat or any other gloss sealer or medium, I'd start and finish with that.

    some tips please!

    I think they all look very nice. My only suggestion for the eyes would be to try a very dark brown instead of black, and a slightly less bright white for the whites. It can give a more natural look. Black eyebrows can also be a little stark. Using the figure's mid tone hair color for dark haired characters, and the shade color for light haired characters is a good place to start.

    I really like all the reveals in this update. The Gnomes, fungus, spirit beast and that awesome undead ogre all turned out great. I'd like to add the Dreadmere & Darkreach expansions but it's not in the cards. Somehow my retail list keeps getting longer and longer even as I keep buying more and more.

    That's a great idea! I was only going to get the GF9 figure. Now I can snag two versions to go along with the herbalist, assuming the sculpt has her animal companion.

    I think the Herbalist would get along well with Minsc, since they both carry a hamster on their shoulder.
