Well I finally managed to get some more time in on painting Sana up.  Then I was struck again with the realization that I should probably have test fitted and drilled pin holes before starting painting her. <_<  guess I'll have to give her a protective coat then pin.  Well I painted up the inner part of her cloak.  I then decided to finish off most of the rest of her.  Looking at her, I realized I need to touch up around her right shoulder.

 

Well here is the result of the progress.  As always C&C are welcome.

Absolutely amazing!!

One tiny thing; maybe slightly more highlight on the part of the hair that falls on her left shoulder.

Ok, with my Zcide Progress goal hit, I am now turning my attention back to Sana.  I also think I might have realized what I was doing in GIMP that reduced the resolution when I was prepping the image.  So now the photo looks a little better I think.  You know shows more flaws. <_<  

 

@LarsM Excellent observation!  I'll do that when I get to those annoying touch ups we all have to do at the end.

 

For progress I managed attach her arm without too much difficulty.  I then laid down some base coats.  For final progress I began to highlight up the leather on the left arm.  Oh yeah, I painted up the wooden axe handle and wraps.  That about does it for tonight.

Yeah, I know I haven't been making any progress on her.  I forgot to update the other days progress, but I did manage to get a photo of today's progress.  I think she is nearing completion, save for the axe head and hair fix.  Well, the base too, but I got that roughly build and will get a photo of it tomorrow (I hope).

In my effort to actually finish stuff, I continued to push my way through the NMM on Sana's ax.  I really like this figure.  I was going to call the figure finished, then I remembered I need to touch up the hair mentioned by LarsM.

 

Here is today's progress.

The Barbarian Babe is a TRULY LOVELY creation. You are a gifted painter. I am looking forward to how you base The Girl...if you need any mushrooms, I'm your Man.

I hadn't thought about mushrooms.  Though.... It got me thinking ... Now I can't un-see my Kid barbarian facing a your animated ones.

 

Well, I started with a simple base idea with a technique I learned from one of James Wappel's basing video's.  It's nothing fancy at the moment.

Here is Sana resting on it to give you an idea of size.

      Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!

      Howdy y'all!
       
      I know I am rather new to the forums but I thought I would introduce a bit of what I have been working on pre and post ReaperCon 2018. No doubt I have met with some of the forum denizens here, most notably @Green Eyed Monster for sure. Hopefully my presence here will be a welcome and fruitful one, and I look forward to talking and learning from all of you! 
       
      A few months back I decided to pick up Zombicide: Black Plague, and before I knew it I was neck-deep in medieval zombies. I told myself I would save  the heroes for after ReaperCon to employ some of the techniques and improvements I would have learned. I... uhh... sorta did that. Let's just say I quickly became tired of the derth of zombies and wanted to focus on more...noble...aspirations.
       
      The Goal: Get 'er done. Preferably by the end of October. Because what better way to say 'Thriller' like a box o'zombies. I am shooting for tabletop standard for the standard fodder zombies, with tabletop+ for the heroes. Not quite display level, but certainly a cut-above your bog 40k Guardsman (ifyaknowwhatimean hashtag don't_tell_the_commissar). I am loosely following the box artwork along with Sorastro's YouTube series, but I certainly am not married to everything. I will try to make a note of any techniques I employ that I have learned either from class, trial and error, or from online tutorials.
       
      Since this is my first original content post here, please let me know if I am doing anything incorrectly or against forum etiquette, as this is not my normal venue for sharing!
       
      So grab a cup and buckle up, cuz we are fixin' to see a whole lot of pictures of the scenic countryside of Zombicide: Black Plague.

      Playing with Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering pigments (finally...) Making a rusty wrought iron fence is really fun! I think I need to add a few more shadows to make the bits pop. I'm pretty happy with this, but C&C welcome and appreciated!

      Fun Dark Sword mage that I finished recently. I painted her fairly quickly so I did not do a WIP thread. I am really happy with how her skin turned out, I think skin is finally clicking with me. Also tried NMM gold for the first time and actually really enjoyed it. Defintely will do more NMM in the future as it made painting the fiddly bits easier. TMM was a pain when I previously painted Dark Sword Miniatures with similar ornaments, it’s good for large areas not so much for tiny ones. One last thing is a slight conversion, she was sculpted with a bottle in her hand that I made into a mushroom to tie her to the base more.
