    I really like the slobber effect! Your color choices are great too. I like it a lot!
  2. Great job with the orb on the staff! The eyes are great too - such a character! Nice work :)
  3. I have Masters brush soap! I haven't broken it out yet for my cheap brushes though.
  4. I ordered Raphael 8404 brushes in size 0, 1, and 2 from Blick and they arrived today! I'm excited to try them out and see how they compare to the cheap Amazon brushes I've been using until this point.

    77018 - Skeletal Archer - My First Mini

    Welcome fellow newbie! I also just started painting minis, and started with this kit - the skeleton was my first as well, and I'm just about finished the orc. Nice job!! :)

    WIP - Learn to Paint Kit (Core Skills)

    Trying to get a feeling for when I am done painting a mini, without infinitely finding things to tweak, is tricky! I experimented with adding rust today by stippling Dark Highlights, Redstone, and Rust Brown onto the sword, shoes, and spikes. I did a final pass with Filigree Silver to add some fresh scrapes and brighten up the edges/tips again. I also did a little bit of lining where the armor meets the skin using a mix of Dark Highlights, Ebony Flesh, and water. I painted the base with GW Stirland Mud and brushed some of it up onto the edges of the fur and his boots. I was considering adding more contrasting highlights to the skin, but I feel like the skin already pops because it is the only color in the mini that isn't a shade of gray/brown. I'm also afraid of messing him up now that he's looking pretty good, haha. I do want to eventually base him but for now, I think he's playable. I think it is time to move onto Mangu Timur!

    WIP - Learn to Paint Kit (Core Skills)

    I got a few minutes to paint tonight so I tried weathering the leather. I enhanced some of the sculpted scratches, added a few extra, and tried making the edges look more worn.

    Iron Wind Metals - Battletech Atrean Dragoons

    I recently watched Toy Story with my toddler and the color scheme immediately made Buzz Lightyear pop in my head! These are neat, I like the cohesive color scheme! The green panels really pop, and neat use of insignia as well. I also really like the glossy look of the visors.

    7580: Ma'al Drakar the Dragon Tyrant

    The shading/highlighting on this is so good - the scales really pop! I also love the lava spill on the base - such a neat touch. Amazing job!

    Dead Man's Chest - Reaper 03518

    This is such an interesting mini! I really like what you've done with it - your creativity with basing a mini that is so horizontal is neat. I like the pops of color with the clothing too!

    77377 Toad Demon

    The slime is such a cool touch! I really like your color choices for this creature too. Great work!
  12. Wow! These critters are so vivid and the little details on them are exquisite. I love them all! So fun to do a group diorama like that. Looking forward to seeing the progress!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    @CorallineAlgae @haldir Those are both great Tabaxi mini options - thanks for sharing! I hadn't seen either of those before.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Looking at the July minis list, I got excited to see Tabaxi female rogue! I'm playing one in a campaign. Looking at the model image, it looks really neat but not quite how I imagined my PC. Reaper's Cheetah Girl mini is still probably my closest fit (which I just snagged in my February Reaper order). I'll likely still get the Wizkids one when it comes out though - I picked up the male version a few days back just to have some other Tabaxi mini options.

    77144: Mummy (3)

    Ah, what a neat idea to give them different colored bases for tabletop use! (I'm new to the hobby and to DnD so I hadn't seen that yet.) Nice work!
