    02726: Tuilin, Female Elf

    Needed to relax and paint for fun for a change, and wanted to try some new paints. This was a Fun little one, in spite of a slight miscast. Tuilin: It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but I even managed to get pupils in her eyes that I’m happy with, yay! The blue is a Vallejo shade I wanted to try out. It’s turquoise in English, but the Spanish name is Halcón Milenario (Millennium Falcon). I don’t know why they call it that as Han’s ship was most certainly not this color, but it’s pretty. Shadows and highlights were attempted by adding MSP Nightmare Black and Dragon White, respectively. Her hair was another attempt at the Blond Hair triad, which is taking a bit of effort to get a handle on. It didn’t help that all my brushes are failing on me right when it’s not possible to get new ones. Comments and critiques welcome!

    A Blast From The Past - Some of Cyr's Really Old Enamel Minis

    They’re still vibrant and impressive! Really digging the dwarf’s beard especially.

    Zealot Miniatures Litchmyre Dungeon

    Curiously reminiscent of Hero Quest, right down to some of the poses. I doubt that is a coincidence.

    Same. Apparently there is a famous person or two in it or something.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Sometimes I hate the pre-assembled nature of Bones. I just had to snap off an otherwise removable bit to be able to paint behind it. Now I feel like a monster, and not the cool kind. Time to learn how to pin, I guess! Now to invest in a paper clip...

    77352: Demi-Lich

    Thanks everyone! I did want to make an attempt at flames before doing something...unfortunate to a more expensive mini. I did use yellow for the highlights, unfortunately it was almost all obliterated by a later glaze. I keep failing to take highlights far enough. Also, I apparently need to watch more painting videos, cuz that would have been helpful. Just wish the first step wasn't “grab your airbrush”. Ah well, it’s not like anyone is ever going to see my minis outside of the Show Off forum.

    77352: Demi-Lich

    Managed to completely paint this happy little guy up in short order: Threw the base together last night to cure, but the actual painting time on this one was only a couple hours. I assumed that he’s meant to be floating on magical wisps of etherealness, but lack ethereal-colored paint. However, I have fire and lava colors, so I made it flames. C&C welcome, as always.

    77009: Werewolf

    Thank you for saying this, sometimes it’s tough to notice incremental improvements in your own work. He’ll have to get in line for the dullcote or whatever when I get around to it, too many shiny little people that should not be so shiny on my shelf. Forgot to mention, I used some dollar store “black sand” for the base. It too is a bit shiny, but might make a passable volcanic gravel or something if used properly. Now wondering if it would be paintable...

    Sometimes a nice hot bath/shower helps ease the aches. I wouldn’t recommend using ice at the same time though. Is the duck okay?

    77009: Werewolf

    Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with): He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf. Also, this: Look at at that eye! It’s a halfway decent eye (even if it isn’t quite human)! Calling the whole thing a win on that basis. C&C welcome.
