Thank you so much! I painted them about a month ago stripped them and then painted them again. I was so happy at first, but as I worked on other figures I started to become very unhappy with them. The hound went from a craft store orange spice color to reaper ice blue. I shunned the fancy paints at first, but they seem to really make a difference and are easier to use.

I am working on dioramas for other figures I finished before these that I hope to post soon. I also practiced on a ton of plastic minis from board games.

Very nicely done for a guy who was petrified.

 

You do know your wizard's staff got bent in packaging and isn't supposed to be that twisted, right?

Aw, it looks cool anyway.

 

That's a very nice start, ML. People do get weird about eyes. I have wondered for a while if miniature eyes could work just solid black or brown, and it looks like yours do.

 

Welcome and happy painting.

I worked on unbending that sword for a long time.

I didn't know his staff was bent too! lol. Well, a gnarled stick is a gnarled stick :)

but thanks both of you.

I believe this is the second mini of yours I've seen posted here now. You've obviously a skill, looking forward to watching it develop. ::):

 

About the eyes. One thing that I've noticed over my years in the hobby is that certain painting techniques fall in and out of favour and then back in again. My point is for you to paint the mini in the style and to the standard that suits you. If you do want to try something new or different this is a great community to ask questions in.

Like the knight I commented on earlier, very smooth painting. You are doing well at the beginning and that is something to be proud of, since a lot of us could not say our first jump into this newer era of miniature painting went as well. Keep up the good work. As for the eyes it is personal preference, especially if you are painting up gaming pieces. I would say if you are planning on contest painting then you might want to work on the eyes in more detail.

      Well, I did it.  We now have a cute little Christmas scene with mama Blightfang and her wee ones getting ready for the holidays!  A little early for some holiday cheer but it was fun 
       
      Learned a few things: don't use wood glue to hold down snow it gives a disturbing yellow cast.  Blightfangs scales are actually leaves, making her more of a forest dragon than a classic green, and I think one of her children was adopted...
       
      I really had a lot of fun with this, even if it wasn't my best work.  It came out well.  I really like the red and teal fades on the wings.
       
      I hope everyone enjoys this little window into the holidays...
       

       

       
      and one more thing.  Although it shows off the teal wings really well and it's an adventurers favorite view, the backside of a dragon is not the most exciting!

      I finished one of my favorite figures from the original Bones Kickstarter: Trista, the White Wolf. Patrick Keith is one of my favorite sculptors and he did a great job with her - especially with her realistic proportions and armor. I wasn't digging the original sword, so I swapped it out using the weapon sprue from Bones 3.
       
      I bunch of thanks to all of the forum members who gave great encouragement and suggestions in my WIP thread.

      I somehow forgot to post this guy when I finished him last year. I painted him shortly after I finished his queenly counterpart. I had some issues with the ice on the base so it didn't turn out exactly as I hoped but it's ok. Painting these big guys is sure a whole different experience to painting the "normal" sized minis.

      *** Please read in David Attenborough's voice***
       
      Even the cold North has it brief moment of Spring.
      The Ice will never melt completely, but the small rise in temperature will melt some, giving the scarse plantlife a chance to sprout.
      Of course melting ice will also mean that large chunks will fall and this can surprise even the most experienced Yeti Chieftain as we see here.
       
      Our Yeti Chieftain Gorm was distracted by his thoughts of a certain female of the species, it is Spring after all...when he found himself too close to a ice mountain.
      A sudden crackling sound and a large chunk came down.
      Gorm found himself paralyzed with fear, and this would be his doom.

      Here is my entry for the Yeti contest.
      A co-worker thought he'd make a good Grinch, so I went with that.
      A little Greenstuff to make a Santa Hat, and here were are.
      The gift box was tough.  I mixed my own metallic blue paint, and freehanded wayyy too many snowflakes.
      I included other shots without the box to show off his details.
       
      Enjoy.
