Wow. Love this!

 

I have a ton of old GW Bretonnian archers that would probably work great for practicing on.

 

Thanks for sharing!

Wow!  Thanks for the detailed tutorial! At first look at the picture I thought to myself that I could never do something like that.  I still think my lines would turn out wonky but your tutorial makes it look less impossible at least.  Thanks again!

That's really impressive the (one) time I did tartan I *did* cheat, I basically just faked lines without connecting them, only really making lines where they might be seen, instead of actually doing a bunch of lines.

That is just awesome. 

I may have to try this soon...  

 

Also, tanks for tipping me off about the Sibeccai.

(I'll be ordering that one the next time I get something from that site)

She's one of my favorite minis, mostly because I'm running a D&D game in the Diamond Throne setting from Monte Cook.  She and her lookalikes get a lot of use in my game.

The Male Sibeccai Runethane from Iron Wind Metals is also a nice figure.  I've posted one in the show offs.  Male Sibeccai Runethane

This is relevant to my interests, because I've been eyeing Reaper's assorted highlanders.  I think I've figured out how to shade tartan, but hadn't yet gotten around to working out the pattern. 

 

Also, as an aside, I'm in the next maritime province east of you.

I've been eying the highlander, too.  I have a couple and what stops before I start is trying to figure out what to do the part which goes up over the shoulder.  The pattern is laterally compressed as a result of the bunching of the cloth, making it hard to figure out how to maintain continuity of the pattern with below their belt.  I'm going to try it at some point.  They are eying me mockingly from my shelf of shame for now.

 

Are you on The Rock?   Do you ever make it to Halcon?

      Ian MacAndrew by Bobby Jackson.  This is the first of several projects with tartans that I'm working on.  Once I get a better grip on the process I will do a detailed WIP.

      I haven't painted much lately, but I did make time to paint this for a close friend's D&D character.  So far she seems happy with it, so I'm happy.
       
      Sorry for the lighting - forgot to take a proper photo before gifting it, so I had to hold it almost inside a lamp.

      Rescued from my shelf of shame thanks to a suggestion from Inarah.  Vampire striking a dramatic pose.  I get the feeling she's not too worried about any pesky wooden stakes in that armour.  Comments and criticism are welcome.

      So continuing on with my theme of black pants and clothing, and trying to stay in certain color schemes to make my life a tad more efficient, here is the other Monk/Martial Artist I finished basing last night. He has the same black pants more or less that the Brue Lee figure had, also nunchuks, and also ready to beat a wrongdoer into submission.  This one is from the Hackmaster line that Ral Partha has brought back, sculpted in 2003 (I checked the bottom before I put him on his base) by Jim Johnson.  Another fun and simple figure, not too many dingly danglies, just a man, his pants, a European shoulder bag, and a few weapons.
       


      I kind of wish his wrist bands had turned out a little bit better metalwise, but oh well, he's done and I'm not going back, too many things pending...
