Wow, that is phenomenal work!  I love all the shading, especially on the metals. The level of detail is astounding!

Thanks Baldur, metals has always been my bane, but over the years I think I'm getting a basic grasp of them if I stick to a certain basic formula.

 

Does anybody have any good non metal metal inspirations for Bronze, using Reaper colors?

Care to share what you are doing for your metal work color wise? I feel like I've got a good grasp on gold nmm, but my silver is weak. Chrome sky/earth nmm is easy enough, but it really isn't what swords and armor should be made of.

 

Looks like you have a lot of blue in your recipe?

Sure, right now I start out with Ashen Blue as my base color, then I start using washes, next if I remember right is soft blue, then twilight blue, then dark elf skin, then after that dark shadow, then dark elf shadow, then black.  After that I go up from my ashen blue base, and apply in the highlights.  I use first, rainy grey, then misty grey, then ghost white, then finally white.

I'm not sure if sometimes it doesn't come out too blue, but I'm either too blue or too grey, so I never quite get what I'm looking for.

Very nice, clean paint job. You’ve really brought the figure to life!

Jim Johnson did all the heavy lifting. I just threw some paint on him.

Very well done, I like the colors you choose. The green and orange/brown on he's clothing and the nmm are beautiful.

Thanks a lot Metalchaos! 

My last couple of miniatures for Hackmaster have been "nature" related figures, like rangers, so I feel I've been using greens and browns and oranges a lot.  I've got my next batch I'm going to be working on soon, where I hope to get a little away from that color scheme.

      Good evening everybody,
       
      so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages.  I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties.
       
      Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!

      Hi guys,
      so I'm slowly working my way through some Shadowrun figures, and here is my latest one.  This is number three of a set of four Street Mages, one more left to go on the set.
       
      Tried to use pretty much just greys, blues and purples, didn't want too much contrast!
       
      So anyhoos,  not too much metal on this figure, which was kind of nice.  Next one hopefully in a few days to complete the set!

      This a Bones elf ranger that I started painting a while back and decided to finish just to be done with him. Done to a tabletop standard. Thanks for looking.

      So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line

       
      As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it.
       
      So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!
