    The Most Beautiful Sculpt? Elf Cleric: 77441

    It is a beautifully painted model, but I have to disagree on the expression. To me her face says "really?" Like someone just said or did something and she is mildly disgusted/annoyed. Still a great sculpt and an awesome paint job, though!

    Bug Problems

    I have a strange problem. Since the weather started getting warmer I've been sitting down to paint more ... and getting ants. They seem to be most interested in my paint water, which I find bizarre. Anyone else run into similar issues with your paint stations? If so, how did you fix the problem? I obviously can't just stop using water or anything. I suppose I could try to get a seal-able container to keep my paint water in for the time being. It's just been so annoying to sit down to paint and find my water full of ants and them scurrying all over my desk. Also, it's the only part of the house I have ant problems in. Nothing in the kitchen or where obvious sources of food would be. Just my hobby desk.
  3. So I'm painting up a big project at work and have had a heck of a time figuring out how to get a good looking yellow gemstone. I don't want it to be orange, but really yellow. I've been fiddling with using red browns as the base, but it comes out more like a muddy yellow than a crystalline yellow. You folks are some of the best painters out there in World Wide Web World, so I figured I'd try and pick your brains :) Any help would be appreciated.

    Finally some reaper!

    So these were painted up for a DND campaign that a group of friends and I are running. Trying to get started on. The dwarf is my PC. Arik is representing an Anti-Paladin in our quest so I pretty much just stuck with the studio scheme and am quite pleased with him. I tried a couple of new techniques on these ones. Namely, two brush blending. I'm quite pleased with it actually. Even on my sub standard NMM.

    I finally finished a Reaper model! Though it suffered some while getting it onto the base and now needs some definite clean up. I decided he had kind of a crazed witch doctor look and wanted to go with something other than the studio job.

    Haven't done much lately, but wanted to post somthing

    The plumes are washed out, but a couple extra highlights probably wouldn't hurt either.
  7. You'll have to forgive the pictures. I currently have no way to get pictures off of my REAL camera, so these are edited iPhone pics. They're a little washed out, but not bad besides that. Eldar Guardians Howling Banshees Tau Fire Warriors Always looking for some good 'ol C&C Up on my desk are 3 Warlords, a Pathfinder and whole lot of Warma-hordes.

    Fremen's Necropolis Army

    If I were you I'd try to paint the whole army to those standards! Even if you never win a game, you'll get the "Best Looking Army" award every single time!

    Anti Paladin

    Holy frijoles! That is quite the 'lovely' paint job there! I especially like the way the color from the cloak carries over onto the pauldrons and greaves.
  10. Can't wait to move out of the place I'm living and have room to paint again!

    My First Try at OSL

    I think you're off to a great start! Clearer pictures would be helpful, but he looks lit by the flames to me.

    Ian and Elsabeth

    Yeah, that's primarily the fault of the camera. Her hair is rather washed out in the pictures but you can see the highlights and shading in real life. Same with Ian's boots and pants. Though those were kind of a rush job. I just got to the point where was I like "Brown! I dont' have to do much to brown!"

    03491: Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard (modified)

    That is some awesome black. Not too grey or chalky, actually looks like it's black.

    50160 Slade, Cyborg Hero

    Well done! Somehow I get the feeling that he's playing some futuristic football or something.

    Ian and Elsabeth

    So these are the two most recent figures that I've finished. I realize that Ian is rather chalky looking and I believe that's the result of the gesso I used for primer. The next few I post up after this were sprayed so they'll be much smoother (hopefully). For Ian I tried a little bit of OSL, as if he were casting a fireball. Seemed to fit given what's written on his character card. For Elsabeth, I pretty much followed the way it looked on the card. I really liked the colors and look of the studio job. As always, I'm looking for input to try and improve on future projects.
