It has been a while since I have painted a miniature. I did not afford myself the time and energy because of issues (family, work, life, etc). Why did I want to grow up again? I made up excuses and reasons and I'm just sick and tired of that BS. Excuses and lying to myself will not allow me to succeed in life and I'm beginning to find my balance again. Oops, beginning to ramble, so here's the model I'm going to be working on:
Several firsts for this guy:
1) Never painted a resin figure
2) Never painted a multi-part figure
I finished my current semester of school a few weeks ago and wanted to ease back into painting with something simple and something from my shelf of shame. I'm not real pleased with the highlights on the cloak, overall I'm happy with him as he ended up in a nice muted tone. Feedback welcome and wanted.
I figured I would make a WIP for the next mini I paint. I mostly have monsters to paint right now as I'm a little intimidated by trying to make skin look good. So far I've just got some areas base coated.
Any comments, ideas or suggestions are welcome! Still trying to figure things out.
The cloak and shirt are a little bright right now. I'm thinking the base colors might be closer to final highlight colors for those. Armor is a black undercoat for the dark silver metallic I'm planning.
Newbie to the forums here. So I am an avid player/painter of miniatures. Most of my collection consists of Blood Bowl and 40k. I read up on the Reaper Bones line and decided to try some out. I went with the LPK basically because I am always in the need to add to my paint collection and it provided me with 3 Bones figs to try out.
I've only completed the Skeleton Archer and Mangu Timur figs so far but have placed a few orders to acquire more Bones. I'm sold!!!!
Both of these were painted with a mixture of Reaper and Army Painter paints. The washes were done with Citadel shades. The bases were finished with the Army Painter basing kit.
