  1. Great Start. As the wolf mentioned, you have great brush control, and that is 90% of the battle. Another tip: I noticed some black paint rubbed off around the base and boots. It could suggest you didn’t wash the mini before painting. It is a good idea to wash any mini, even metal. Use an old, discarded toothbrush and some warm water with a drop of liquid dish soap. Rinse well, let dry thoroughly, then try not to touch the mini anymore with bare hands. Washing removes manufacturing residues and hand oils which can impair paint adhesion. Finally, some spray primers don’t react well with Bones plastic, which could contribute to the paint rubbing off.

    It doesn’t help that it looks like he’s got a bowl full of blood!

    He is very well painted. It reminds me of Dobby.

    Love them.

    Citrine paints Wizkids spider victims

    It's an interesting color choice. They look a little more like mummies piled on the ground than being wrapped in spider silk. Regardless, nicely done.

    Creeped out by the pale ticks. They make me think Aliens face huggers.

    Reaper figs for D&D group

    I think the Monk stands out as the best BECAUSE his skin highlight/shading is so stark.

    Great work. So smooth. Gloss on the eyes is a nice touch.

    Great job. Love the caps. These are some of the best versions of these fungoids I’ve seen.
