I just got into painting boardgame miniatures in May of this year.I started withthe Dnd boardgames.(Drizzt and Ravenloft)
The Reaper kickstarter just springboarded me right into the deepend of this wonderful world of miniatures.
So while waiting for the Reaper Kickstarter minis to arrive I picked up a couple warlord starter armies boxes and most recently the new 2player Hordes battle box.
I've decided to tackle the Circle of Orboros first and bought a bunch of other mini's to go with the starter box army.
I've been slowly working on them but I'd love some feedback as I'm going.
I'm trying for an Autumn theme to the color scheme.
I figured I'd take the path of least resistance and start with Shifting Stones First.
So after painting dipping and basing this is what I ended up with.
Next Up I figured I'd work on the Druids of Orboros unit.
Alot of this has been a learning painting technique experience, base coating metal with black then dry brushing the metallic paint over for example. as well as dry brushing bronze over red on the Armour.
I've been using Army painter Quickshade Strong tone to dip my mini's. I try and leave the deep shading to the dip and with these figures progress from base coat painting to include highlights then dipping.
I've finished two of the six druids trying to use orange shades for the leather highlights and Green for the Black Cloak heres one pre dip
and heres the first two druids after i dipped them and dullcoated, one of them has the base finished,i'm working on second tonight.
I started on the next one and wanted to try and get some more color into the model but the yellow face mask is bugging me..it might just be to bright..maybe a little brown and or yellow to tone it down.
Its just too stark but not sure what to do with it yet..will probably wokr around it for now.
Welp thats a quick catch up to today.
