Awesome!!
Well done.

 

As for the Elephant, many have a brown colour when they're wet or had a sandbath.

So maybe that could be helpful?

Thank you! I haven't even thought of that! I was considering to make him almost black but then he'd colour clash with the gorilla. I don't know why i'm so set on making them all different colours xD

Really like what you;ve done with him. Great eye for detail!

Greys can also be made from two complementary colors. Well, most of the time... other times that comes out as a brown. So if you don't mind mixing colors having only two greys wouldn't limit you. However, sometimes mixing colors isn't preferable or feasible.

The rhino looks great. You could consider giving the stone a brown wash of some sort. Rarely are rocks solely grey in color.

Thank you! It's funny that you say that...When I started this hobby I painted with a friend that bought pretty much any and every shade. I just had a basic starter set and wondered why someone would buy all these slightly different shades when you could just mix them...until I started a wereshark and left him half done and then couldn't mix the same shades again for the life of me... twice. I don't trust myself enough to keep proper track of my mixing volumes xD

I have 15 million shades cause Im lazy. Mixing means I have to be more careful with them drying out,  and depending on the palette, more clean up as well. Which is more time than dunking my brush into the already mixed paint.

 

or all of that could just be a load of broccoli I tell myself to justify me spending more money on new paints. :lol:

If you're willing to be whimsical about it, I totally vote for a pink or blue heffalump.

 

Nice job on the rhino!

One can never have enough paints. I mean basically you can't mix different brands cause the paint have such different properties and finishes that already is very limiting! *cough*

You can totally mix brands, I do it all the time.

 

I have a little notebook that I use to write down my paint recipes. Most of the time I remember to write them down if I make a color I really like and think I might want to use again.

 

As for only having two greys, you can easily add blue, purple, red, brown, black, white, etc to make different colors.

Even if not whimsical, a dark purple makes a nice shadow, and a blue grey makes a nice mid tone for 'grey' things. 

 

As I am sure you know, what color we see all depends on what colors are around it.

Colors A and B are exactly the same color. Don't believe me, load the image up in a photo editor, and copy and paste each square side by side. They are the same.

I think she (Glamberry) was being sarcastic. (but perhaps I'm wrong. :unsure:

 

@Glamberry - btw, nice sparkly nail polish.

      Also known was "Wait, hippos really are purple?"

      These guys are some of my favorites from Bones III.  Sadly, the "Isle of Dread" style game I was running ended long before these arrived, but I was recently reading "Elephantmen", which was a good inspiration to get these done.


       
       
      King Hippo.  His skin was already done when, during a paint jam, a buddy pointed out, Hippos are not pure grey.

      I had to greenstuff back in his necklace, and carve out a nostril that wasn't cast properly.  I only noticed mid-paint.  And of course the zoom shows the mold lines I thought I got...



      Obadiah Horn.  The simplest one, but I like his stance.
       

       
       
      Ebony Hide, the Elephant.  I went with the obvious Zulu theme for him.  I couldn't figure out if his club was meant to be a bone or a wooden knobkerrie, but I went with wood.

      I finally have six fighting CAV armies - some more fight-y than others.  Some have enough models with enough variety to meet diverse challenges, and some are just barely legal if you squint right.  Case in point?  Here's my newly painted Ritterlich army!  
       
      Notice a complete lack of infantry, aircraft, fighting vehicles, transports, and for that matter, primary squads.*
       
      But recon and artillery?  Got that *covered*!  
       
      Anyway, here's a glimpse of my boys in blue.  They won't see much growth until next year when CAV KS II gets here, but they will see play because, hey, rhinos right?  
       
       
      * As-is, I could only build two legal attack squads, both of which revolve around a rhino and a cataphract with either a recon model or a fire support model to get it up to a full squad of 4.  Truth be told, I'm honestly thinking I'll re-purpose some of these cougars as Cougar IIs - something between a Cougar and a Jaguar, just for the sake of variety.

      Finished up my Luna Wolf Rhino this morning, several things I wish I'd done better but it's going to have to do for now. Further weathering will be done at the end of my entire army painting so I can try to keep it consistent.
       
      Anyway, C&C is heartily welcome!

      I've started painting minis again, since this winter. I used to do some in my twentys but did not take the hobby seriously as i do now. For the last few months i've been furiously looking for my old models without success, until today! They are ral partha pewter models from the 1990's. I did not remember i had the rats , the neanderthal and the rhino, it was quite a surprise when i found them. The paint is chipped but i will remove it & redo'em.
       
      The wizards and the storm giant were done without primer, had no idea i should do that back then. All the models were done without the use of a magnefying glass, wich i do now. It's interesting seeing one's past work from 20 years ago. I wonder if i should repaint my very first ones or keep'em as is?
       
      This is a trip!
