Armour looks great and a really nice colour contrast to the bunny's fur.

 

This was my favourite sculpt from the kickstarter and your paintwork certainly does it justice. ::):

I really love your work on the armor- great blending and very realistic metal effect!  He's adorable!

Thanks Corporea!  I was really proud of the armor as well (the sword not so much).

 

Love the armor; excellent job on the NMM.

Thanks Slashhamster, It would seem my year long practice at NMM is finally paying off.

 

Excellent "fiddling!"

Thanks Bruunwald.  Though the most fiddling was on the back armor.  I must have repainted the chest piece 4 times to get it to something I thought was passable.

You are correct. It's using normal paints without metallic flakes to fool the eye into thinking it's real metal. It takes a lot of practice with blending and knowing how and where to put the highlights and shadows to make it convincing.

Cool nice job by the way I am still learning thanks for letting me know.

      As mentioned in the Rabbits topic, when I first saw 03929: Drangus, Duckman Warrior, I knew I'd found the opposition for my Rabbits.  
      The problem is, duckmen don't seem nearly as common as Rabbits.
      This is my current "army".

       
      That's two copies of Drangus and Oathsworn's duck-billed platypus (it's got a bill so close enough!!).
       
      So far my quick search has only tracked down one set of Duckmen, by Rebel Minis (bookmarked!!).
      I'm hoping Reaper will expand their Duckman line in the comming months as well (please?).
       
      I'll be doing a weapon swap on one of the two Drangus's (Drangi?) to make them a little different.
      So if you know of any more Duckmen figs, or just duck figs, or really any associated waterfowl or waterfowlmen, feel free to let me know.

      So, a very long time ago, somewhere around the turn of the millennia, when I started buying minis (not counting that dragon I bought in the early 90s...which I should get around to painting one of these days....) I came across a miniature that would change the course of history!  Well, my history anyway, because if I hadn't seen it I likely wouldn't be posting about all these other minis I bought because if it, not to mention all the butterfly bunny effects that that one change would have made to the timeline....but I digress. One that faithful day I spotted the legendary (and apparently back in print!!) Doom Bunny from Ral Partha.  I, of course, had to have it.  It then sat (as is usual) unpainted for years.  Then one day, while GMing a campaign, I decided to run an entire rabbit themed night as we were playing on Easter Monday.  The campaign either had (I think, unless this was the first animal night....I think the Bovine Liberation Army came first....) , or ended up having an animal theme for a bit so all was good.  I painted up the Doom Bunny and my wife painted up 4 Reaper bunnies from some familiar set or another (must have been one with weasels in it, I needed a bunch of those for a Hackmaster thing).
      I had a very fun time running the bunnies (unlike the BLA final encounter...anyone remember how long it took to create a high level minotaur blackguard in 3.x?  It got critted 3 times in the first round and went down in the second. It got to act once and rolled a 2 or something....but I'm not bitter....) and since that time have gone out of my way to collect rabbit figures of all sorts.
      So, long story, er, long, it's time to start thinking about painting the rest.  A big motivation for this is that I recently went in on a Killer Rabbits kickstarter and have a horde more coming soon.  The other motivator to get going was Reaper releasing  03929: Drangus, Duckman Warrior, the hereditary enemy of bunnies everywhere!
      So step one was to find them.  I spent a good hour digging through boxes and I "think" I found them all (excluding any painted exchange figures I may have received due to mentioning in EVERY survey I've done for years).

      So at the front we have the 4 Reaper bunnies and the Doom Bunny.
      The grey resin is Bombshell, as are their little doom bunny and jackelope (it still counts!) sidekicks.  The right side are all Darksword. The left in front are Oathsworn.  Back left there are 6 spear bunnies that I believe were Ral Partha from the same era as the Doom Bunny (they have the same shields).  And at the back is Nibbles, from CMoN's Arcadia Quest, which a friend ordered for me with their KS order.
       
      BTW, if you know of any other bunny figs, feel free to mention them here, or PM me directly if you prefer.  I'm always on the lookout for more. 
       
      Up next will be bagging all the multipart figs now that I've got them sorted, then figuring out what to start with. That may not be a quick process, but I'll (theoretically) get there.

      This is my version of Grond from Hasslefree Miniatures. I've had the figure for a while but never got around to him. I can't really tell why I picked him up now (might have been that I wanted something to try my Valejo steel color on), but after I started I had trouble putting him down. I'm really happy with how he turned out, and with very little resistance as well. I had trouble with the eyes. I would have preferred a "normal" straight ahead stare, but every time I filled the left eye it had him looking to his right. After three attempts with the same result I figured it was meant to be.
