Better late than never. I started these 3 months ago and finished them about 1 month ago. Finally have a halfway decent photo area again, so I can post pictures!
Over winter break, my elder digit and I spent an afternoon playing with some plastic tree armatures from the train store. You have to glue your own flock on to make the leaves, etc. I wanted to make a cluster so I carved some foam into the shape of a little hill and painted white. The trees were not strong enough to punch through the foam though, so I ended up using the glue gun to get them to stay in. More recently we tested out a mini string of led lights and tried trimming the tiny trees. Did not work out great - I lost a lot of foliage in the process and the lights are spaced out too far for the scale - there’s wire all over the place. Oh well, I had to use it after all that work, so it is the background for this jolly crowd.
Thanks for looking!
Ok, here is my first NMM paint job. I'm not sure if I dislike the technique, or just picked a bad mini to try it on first. I found it a bit fiddly and frustrating with all of the dully cast spikey bits. I did a pretty quick TT quality job on everything not NMM, so I know there are a lot of places to improve there.
Also, I feel like the photos make it look better than it really is. I'm pretty happy with how the front of the armor turned out, but the shield and shoulder pauldrons were frustrating.
Would truly appreciate any feedback on improving the quality of my NMM!
I'll be doing Mangu next and tracking in the same WIP thread.
Wip thread here:
I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.
This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.
