    Thanks! Nope, the fingernails aren't sculpted on this model so simply painted the skin to the last highlight and then took some dark grey (almost black) and shaped the nails and then picked up some warm off-whithe and painted over the dark-grey leaving the little grey line you see (like when you paint the eyes) , washed with sepia, highlighted with the same off-white.

    Yes, was not intentional but we can see it that way I like your interpretation! Thank you
  3. I find it a "little" overpriced... don't know, lately I find that people on KS start thinking about the hobbist like ATM they can milk off trying to sell us every damn piece of plastic s***t for 30€/$/£... kind of boring...

    Thank you everyone for the kind words and compliments, i'm really happy you all like it :) About the skin, I used the Vallejo Fairy skin set, it's simply incredible how smooth and easy those colors mix, it's almost impossible to not achieve good results. For the cloak I started with zenital priming, then glazed using a grey sky blue to make it easy to see where the light was hitting the model. Switched to dark green and poison green glazing back and forth from shades to highlight: long and tedious but really easy in the end. For the beard heavy red for the base and then hilighted with orange, rust and yellow; shadows are made by mixing a dull blue to the base and glazing it into the recess.

    Hello everyone, finally i can post a mini I've finished to paint: during the holidays I was very busy at work and at home and had no time to paint :( Soooo here we have Borin Ironbrow, I was really inspired by the pose, the quality of the sculpt and the three weapon to choice: I've opted for the warhammer, cause a dwarf have to break rocks and skulls Classic red beard, and red robe to make contrast with the green cloak, natural leather and METALS! Woooo! I got a bunch of new metals from Vallejo Metal Colors for the holidays and had to try it and I have to say this are THE BEST metal i've ever used, so smooth application, superb metallic finish: the pictures can't capture the real effect, but believe me, those metals are just incredible! Tried to make a Ancient gold finish for the armor and the hammer head, using steel, silver and washing it with some Sepia. It came out more Brass looking, happy of it hanyway! For the shield, helm and hammer handle I've opted for steel finish: for it i've used steel, dark grey wash and aluminium highlight. Ok enough bla bla... here we go: Thank you for reading, hope you'll like it!

    How to use Silicone Molds?

    Sometime it's better to ask for sure, the forum is very helpful! And sometime we have to think before buying overpriced products, as "mold releasers" that simply is no more than silicone spray grease, just overpriced! or things like flow improver: what it does? simply break the superficial tension of the water! a couple of drops of dishwash in a dropperbottle of water will do the same thing almost for free!

    How to use Silicone Molds?

    Simply talc. Do not use grease there is no need as the clay should not stick to the mold, but some talc will make it easy to release the model.

    No, I mean too deep in color, I find that bronze has a less yellowish color, more dull and brownish (greeny brown, not even red); Your bronze looks more like brass to me, but again, just my own opinion! Matter of taste if you get what I mean I'm not very good at NMM so I can't share any recipe, but when I use TMM I mix gold, copper and iron (vallejo metal colors) to get to something similar to bronze, and then just shade it using some sepia and and agrax and adding silver to the base for the highlight. Again your NMM look great, mine are not advices, just another point of view ;)

    What can I say? I like your painting style, love the NMM the hi-light are perfect you can undestand where the light come from at the first glance! Maybe IMO the bronze color is a bit too deep, but, as I already said, just my opinion. Nice!
