    First ever miniature: Mr. Bones

    Thanks. I couldn't really catch it in a picture but the super reflective liquid gold I put on each side of the lantern really makes it glow in person.

    Bronze Dwarves

    Been playing this silly board game with my siblings called Quartz where you all play dwarven miners who mine for valuable gems. The day marker that comes with the game is just a lame little yellow piece of wood, so I set out to find something better to replace it. Ended up settling on the pack mule with plans to paint it gold. Then for no reason whatsoever it occurred to me that maybe it would be fun for each player to have their own little dwarf character that does absolutely nothing in the game itself. So I added pretty much every Dwarf that Reaper sells to my cart as well. My goal was to paint the pack mule with Vallejo liquid gold and all the dwarves with a bronze-like metal paint. Below is the result, and keep in mind I have never painted before... You may notice that two of these are not dwarves. Well I would counter that by telling you that one of them is an undead dwarf brought back to life by the sheer need to mine fancy gems, while the other is a tavern wench who's legs I MAY have chopped off to make her dwarf height. So for all intents and purposes, she is a dwarf. I used Vallejo Liquid Gold on the mule and MSP Dwarven Gold (mixed with varying amounts of MSP Dragon Black) on the dwarves. Also shaded them with MSP Sepia Wash then sealed them up with Vallejo Satin Varnish. Oh and fun fact, if you want to add heft to a 32mm round base a sacagawea coin fits perfectly inside and adds just the right amount of weight. Also threw on a 32mm washer.

    First ever miniature: Mr. Bones

    Never painted a miniature before, or even really worked with paints much, so I did all the research and then used Mr.Bones here for a practice run. How did I do? I sort of had to improvise with the paints I had since I bought all this for a different project (I'll make a separate thread). Had to do a couple coats of sepia wash for the brown sack and mixed the black and white to get the gray under-robe. Mixed a little black into the dwarven gold to get the lantern and ropes. Also used a little liquid gold on the lantern so when it reflects light it looks kind of like it lights up. Paints used...
