Sorry in advance for my newbness, I've been painting for a couple years but completely new to posting and taking photos.
Here is my most recent project. I clipped a torch off of a goblin pyro to throw on this beasty's base. I have not sealed this one yet. I have a lot I'd like to learn and one of them is how to seal my minis without them getting too shiny or clogging up the details.
Well here it is. I do not recall the paints used - I also need to work on tracking what I use especially when mixing paints - but I am pretty sure I used the yellow and orange from the reaper holiday paint set for the torch/osl.
As part of this month's getting to know you thread a challenge was proposed, try a technique you've never done before. For me that was OSL. So I used the Mousling Druid to attempt this. For a first try I don't think it turned out too bad. The lighting in my room isn't great so I hope it reads okay.
This is Talespinner's fault. And also OneBoot's idea. (In another thread Talespinner challenged people to try something that was new —to them— and then Oneboot mentioned OSL and this specific model.)
So, I acquired one 77364 on Saturday. Then I headed into the paint area to make a start. At that point "a idea flew into my funnel" after I spotted newish bottles of Blue Liner and Black Primer. These paints got mixed...
The other part of the idea was to prime the mini with this inky dark mixture (roughly 50/50 Blue Liner/Black Primer**) where the lantern light could not reach. I Probably worked too fast. I am thinking the back of her head should be all inky as well.
The pizza happened later.
**That made a nice rich black. Next: there will be a sword swap.

As part of this month's "Getting to know each other" thread, @TaleSpinner challenged us to...
I picked OSL (which I always think is "open source lighting" rather than "one source lighting") because I've never done it before, never even tried, and the diorama I'd like to do for Reapercon really kinda needs it. With that in mind, I needed to decide on a mini to practice on.
How did I end up picking the lich? Well, since this year's Frostgrave campaign is the Thaw of the Lich Lord, and I don't have the official Lich Lord mini, I picked up the Bones Lich on my most recent order. I figure that he'd look really cool if his hand was glowing. We'll see if I can pull that off.
Tonight's progress was limited to removing mold lines. Or trying to. The one running straight across his knees? It may not be very visible in this pic, but it's awful...
