Turned out pretty nice. Sometimes the quick diversionary paint jobs can be most satisfying. I can picture this guy showing up in a Mad Max movie though.

I think it's mainly because I don't care so much about the model. Since I don't play with mine I only buy models that I find interesting or pretty. However that leads to me not wanting to screw up and wanting to make the paint job "worthy of the model". Self induced pressure blabla. Painting some random dude I didn't expect makes it easier.

Thank you! Haha he does look like that could be a fitting second occupation xD.

I think you did a phenomenal job.  Your tabletop is my current idea of "display worthy".  I think it came out exceptionally well

I feel the same way as you.  Since I don't play with 99% of mine (i did finally paint one as my PC in my current Pathfinder game), I seek "perfection" and i too wish to make my paint jobs "worthy" of the model.  Especially the metal ones I bought recently. I have one that I primed, started and was instantly disgusted with and stripped it because the results were not matching the vision I had in my head. Poor Ishara Snowfinch sits primed and waiting for me to feel confident enough to paint.

Thank you! I still haven't mastered a good layering technique but I'm trying my best to improve. Lighter skin tones are definitely still a struggle.

I pretty much only paint metal below 40mm because my skill isn't high enough to make up for the loss of detail. I need crisp details to guide me. But I do see the appeal for people that play with their minis. My big models are mostly bones because the loss of detail is not as bad. I have a Halloween Sophie that I probably painted and stripped 4 times now xD I do find that at the end if I don't care so much about the model it turns out at least okay. With this bones guy I can live with that.

Great job! I actually like this mini a lot, it has that 80's fantasy movie (Conan, Beast master) look to it lol.

Nice job! Awesome skin tone to be exact.. How about a little more blood (HAR HAR HAR :B): ) .. A few drops here and there would "reflect' his profession in a more realistic way.. Also Tamiya clear red with some black ink does wonders for the realistic "sanguis" look..

      I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
       
      I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
       
      The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
       
      So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
