It would have never occured to me to go with light colored marble. It is gorgeous. with the red roses and silk liner this is very striking. Congrats on a lovely piece...

 

And have not tried P3 metallics, but have found Vallejo Air metallics to have very fine "metalic" flakes that work well with minis since they are designed to go through an air brush.

Supremely stunning marbling.

 

Opinion: I'm not sure how much is lighting vs shading, but I would have still chosen a colour with a bit more contrast for the lamp. From a distance it might not be distinguishable. If that was the effect you were going for however...

You're absolutely right. This was a quickie paint job, and I didn't do a good job of setting things apart, color wise. The shadows could use some more definition as well. Maybe I'll run a glaze of something over the lamp to set it apart.

 

Thanks for the comments!

My wife found a great trick for treasure piles. Get a tube of gold glitter from the craft store. The individual bits are just the size of small coins. Adds a nice touch when you look at it and you get flashes of gold light from the reflective glitter.

 

Looking great :)

      Hi all, I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, but does anyone know if Reaper has ever discussed/considered making the Bones ground sculpts that support the miniature the perfect circumference to be flush for 1" or 2" or 3" for RPG bases? Even for just the smaller miniatures that would fit 1" or 2" bases and not the large-sized ones?
       
      It seems like there would be a big portion of the market that would love a miniature you don't have to do special basing for besides supergluing it to a base considering how great some of the sculpted ground looks already. Basing miniatures by removing the nice ground sculpts from Reaper or trying to figure out how to obscure/blend in the sculpted ground is one of my biggest pet peeves about this hobby and I feel like there must be others who feel the same.

      I picked this up to paint for my girlfriend as Lon reminds me of her dog Erebus. He was fun to paint, although looking at the photo I can see a lot of flash I missed. As Erebus is female I probably should have done Lon's trousers in pink or the same teal shade as Erebus's collar and leash.

      Went a bit crazy and felt the call of the mini. Painted this in a single afternoon. Starting to get a hang on wet blending.

      My girlfriend's been fascinated by Antarctic exploration for a few months so when I saw that Reaper make an Antarctic Explorer figure, I had to get it and paint it for her. Here he is photographed in front of a porcelain iceberg she picked up at an art exhibit. She was really happy that I'd painted it for her but it took her about 30 seconds to say, "Isn't that the main guy from that Thing movie??"...
