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?

      Well he's safely delivered now so I can show off.  I was requested to do something fantasy with no modern or sci fi so with dragonman becoming popular in 5thed I thought I would go a little scally . I started off with the miniature on a stone base but I had a spare grippli from another project so I added an overbase and a second figure and called the whole thing.  I am rather proud of this one.  A lot of the elements are subtle until you notice them, and I like the little grippli with his speaking trumpet and bright livery.  You can tell he's had to deal with big persons before!
       
      Hey you; down here!
       
      Enjoy

      I got a camera to take better pictures of some of the miniatures I've been painting. I hope my GM can use them!

      Among my first finished minis of 2019 (finished in, some started...well, this century), a lot didn't fit into any category.  Here's the random ones.

      The Ladies (mostly Reaper) 
       
      60036: Visbaronetess Delour Aulamaxa

       
      03845: Mina Splinterheart - River Widows Captain
       

       
       
      07012: Dungeon Dwellers: Caerindra Thistlemoor
       

       
       
      03061: Anushka, Female Fighter
       

       
      I now realize this is a Warmachine Pirate, not Reaper...but she snuck into the group shot already!
       

       
       
      The Jason Wiebe tribute miniature, "Johann Rumbleguts".  I only noticed the missing part of the base in the photos...time for new glasses.


       
       
      50268: Bill Foster, Lumberjack

       
       
      A very strange miniature, 02044: Cadwalon.  He's supposedly an ugly human but he's Halfling sized!


       
       
      And trailing far behind with all the equipment for these weirdos, the simple Pack Mule

      These are a couple from my shelf of shame. They're 1978 Ral Partha gargoyles now produced by Iron Wind Metals. I originally thought they were some sort of Imp and started painting them that way. Then I discovered what they were and put them aside until I could strip them and start over. Then I decided I liked them better as imps so I gave them each about 5 minutes of attention and now they're ready to start tormenting my players.
