What color is that green?  Nice job!!

I started with a standard metallic color, I believe here I either used Speed Metal or Heavy Metal from Scale75.  From there I applied some watered down Biel-Tan Green from Citadel Shade wherever I felt inspired.  For the shadows, like underneath his arms, I darkened the wash with Nuln Oil from Citadel.

      This figure is a great load off my Shelf of Shame.
      I wanted to complete it for my friend's 40th birthday, as he was supposed to come back to town for a surprise party.  I never finished it, since he changed his plans and there was no party.  He and I go back to 7th grade, and have gamed together on-and-off for the better part of 25 years.  I've gone back to complete this figure after about a 3 year hiatus.  He is my first real attempt at an NMM weapon and armor.  The challenge with the sword was the spine of the sword is soft not crisp, so getting a straight line was tough.
       
      I asked my friend what his favorite type of character was to play.  His answer: Sword and Board fighter.
      I wanted the figure to resemble my friend: Very pale Caucasian, very light blond short hair.  Also, I wanted our high school colors to figure into the paint scheme: Green and White.
       
      I also like to find old gems from the Reaper store that need some love and new life breathed into them!  Ashlan definitely fits the bill.
       
      So, I present Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin.
       

       
      I had dreams at one point of making the suitable looking parts of the sword and tabard-trim into green gems, but gave up on that to get him DONE!.
       

       
      Part of the reason I gave up on this figure for so long was my failure to realize my ambitious goal to paint a freehand gold NMM device on the back to match the one sculpted on the front.  The back felt like it needed something.  I tried a white dragon for a while, like the shield, but didn't like it.  So I repainted the back and tried this gold device.  It came out "good enough" after about the third try, so I moved on.
       

       
      Overall, I'm very pleased with Ashlan.  In know my friend will enjoy it.  He's triple-sealed for gaming goodness.
      Now, I just have to pack him up for a safe trip to Seattle.
       
      Thanks for reading.
      C&C Welcome.

      So after giving  a good scrub with warm soapy water, gluing him to a base, and base coating with Brown Liner, I drybrushed his armor with shadowed steel, painted his eyes, blocked in face, and hair, and then went to town with the cloak and shield. 
       
      The shield is Dragon Bronze as the base, and the greens and blues are blends of Oceanic Blue, Viper Green, and Linen White and Pure Black.

      Hello again,

      A paladin I painted for a campaign I was playing in.

      Colour palette consisted of off whites and light greys. Red was used to try to make the mini pop a little. 
      A metallic gold was used for detailing to try and add to the holy theme. 

      Had a lot of fun painting this.

      Here is the warrior/paladin guy from my Dragons Don't Share 2 set. He came without his shield so I used one of the new ones from Bones 3. I realized after I super glued it that I stuck it on wrong. Too bad because my super glue works tremendously well! It's not that big of a deal to me so I went ahead and painted him up. I really like how he turned out and I hope you guys do too!
       
      C&C always welcome.

      I finally finished my Dragons Don't Share! I have another that I purchased to paint sometime next year!
       
      For this one, I was inspired by the ruins of Pompeii. I went with the yellowish stones and added frescoes and statues. There is also a bird in a nest, a lizard, butterfly, and bunny in amongst the ruins. I used a lizard photo to design my dragon instead of going with a "usual" color. I thought he fit in with the ruins.

      C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
