    77580 Ma'al Drakar the Dragon Tyrant

    I finally finished this guy. Not a long long paint job, but lots of layers of paint on some parts. I used the reaper metallics on the head, plus a lot of other reaper paints. Basecoat was DF paints, as they seem to stick to bones really well despite being a bit thick and intended for terrain. In the last pic is the highlighting I did on the body. First time for me to really try that. Updated with another pic, added a green wash top necks to help blend with the body better

    Otherworld Iron Golem

    This is the only mini I finished in December of 2016, but at least it was a larger figure.... Otherworld Miniatures Iron Golem (SKU DM32d) on a 2 inch diameter Reaper base. He is painted using mostly metallic paints.

    Painting Metallic

    I've been painting a little while and have a few metallic paints, both Reaper and GW. Any way, I was blown away by the miniature pictured next to Julie Guthrie's shark greens. Specifically, the miniature's helmet looks so shiny you could shave in the reflection. These photos inspired me to experiment with media and varnish. I came up with a medium that is 2 parts Liquitex Gloss Medium, 1 part Winsor and Newton Flow Improver and 1 part water. This I mixed 1 for 1 with my metallic paints. Then I experimented with various varnishes and found Liquitex Hi-Gloss Varnish to be pretty nice. Still, I doubt I'll get anything as shiny as the mini in those photos. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if that was that one of Julie's figs next to the sharks, or did somebody else paint the knight in question? I've reposted the photo here for ease of reference.
