  1. What Pingo said. You can always thin the paints a bit with water or acrylic medium if they are too thick (assuming they actually come out of the bottles! ). I've still got paints bought in the mid 1980's like this one from Citadel which is still viable some 30 years later....
  2. Looks great - nicely done!
  3. Thank you! Thanks! It's a suitably sickly shade. Many thanks! It's definately the stuff of nightmares.......
  4. Thanks Guys! Wonky eyes are the "latest thing" - all the cool minis have 'em!
  5. Thanks for all your comments Guys! I deliberately went for a more natural colour scheme here, the hieroglyphic stone base pointed me in a sandy direction. For the hood, I just picked out some specific scales to generate some nice looking markings.
  6. Greetings! I don't seem to have as much time to paint miniatures as usual at the moment but I have been working on this beastie here & there lately. I really like this sculpt & I couldn't resist painting it purple. I did have a bit of a nightmare trying to paint the areas between the base of the worm & the (worm)hole so, if I was to paint another one, I would definately paint the parts up separately & glue them afterwards. Thanks for looking!
  7. Greetings folks! Sssssssssssss, tabletop quality paintjob of the Giant Cobra from the Bonesssssssssss 3 Kickssssssstarter! Thanks for looking!
  8. Greetings Folks! Just a quick tabletop quality paintjob of Galadanoth, Elf Sniper from the Bones 3 Kickstarter - complete with wonky eyes...... Thanks for looking!
  9. Nicely done, your choice of colours is lovely!
  10. Fantastic & super icky - great work!
  11. Absolutely amazing work - Great stuff! Can I put forward the subtitle of "A cheeky bouquet"?
  12. Fantastic!
  13. You've done a great job - well done! I've got one of these to paint at some point & I agree, there's definately a mental hurdle to jump in order to get it started (& finished!).
  14. He looks fantastic! I'm not great at OSL but how about painting the next goblin in much darker tones as if it's night or he's in a cave? That way, you can achieve a greater contrast with the lighting against his body & how far it raidiates outward.
