Oi everyone! My fiancÃ© has given me the BESTEST (yes, bestest!) birthday gift EVER: over 30 miniatures which arrived just yesterday, along with a sample bottle of MSP paint (thank you Reaper packaging team)! :D I finally feel like I'm getting serious about this hobby. This, and I've watched easily over 5 hours of YouTube vids just about painting techniques... Let's be honest, I'm no professional, and I'm not using professional tools (except for my brushes). But this is fun! I'll be posting my work here, and if you have some tips especially for the scenery, I'll be glad to read it. I just bought a bit of stuff to glue to my bases so they don't look dull, and I'll take any advice I can! For the time being, here is a dire boar (#02527) I finished not too long ago. I did glue on some lichen-grass thingies on the base to try it. I'm pretty happy about the contrasts on this one, I finally managed to make a wash that looked good. Oh and sorry about the lighting, I don't have a lightbox or anything, so it's my cell phone and a light bulb doing the job. ;) I'll be posting pictures of my barbarian girl soon, just finished her two days ago! Feel free to give honest feedback! And for those of you interested, here's what I use for all my minis: - Rosemary & Co. brushes Series 33, sizes 2, 0 and 3/0 (along with old brushes for drybrushing) - Americana craft acrylic paints - Delta Creative gloss & matte varnish - Krylon grey primer - my brand new set of jewelers' magnifying LED eyeglasses (eBay $7!)
