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.

      Hi all,
      a figure I just finished yesterday (or so I thought).  This is the Ral Partha Town Constable, and I was kind of intrigued by him, as he isn't a very heroic or noble looking figure, he looks  a little bit lost, so I contacted Iron Wind and asked them if he was supposed to represent somebody and lo and behold, he is actually based on Tim Conway, and the figure at the time that was sold in his blister, a cowardly paladin, was based off of Don Knots. Who would have known?
      So I took these pictures yesterday quickly at lunch and posted them out where I usually do on Instagram, and as I looked at them, I noticed I had forgotten to paint something. So today's quiz is what did I forget to paint? To make it easier you can see it on the picture from behind.  Hopefully I don't get now 147 other things that I forgot to paint, but we'll see.

       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and happy Independence day to all you gringos!

      Still having 2 wizkids left to paint so I decided to first end the elf paladin set and make the second one.
      Also wanted to test some color paint and a snowy base !

      So here's another homage figure I just finished.  Ral Partha back in the day did a few figures based on popular figures of the time. The dwarf samurai I did recently was one, and here is another one, Elvis, King of the Bards.
       

      So hard to choose colors on him, so ended up kind of with a red, white and blue motif, kind of close to Fourth of July.  He has some really small circular eyes, but they turned out surprisingly well. When I was editing the photos and got a good look at them, they were actually pretty decently laced.  
      Anyhow, another great old Partha figure to enjoy!

      Hi guys,
      so here's a figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha Saturday Night Fever Samurai, who I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's based on John Belushi.  Pretty straight forward figure to paint, and I wanted to give him more of a five o'clock shadow (thanks Patrick for the advice) but I just gave it to him where it was actually kind of sculpted in.  I looked at a few reference pictures of John Belushi in his Samurai suit, but eventually went a slightly different route to give a bit more color to him. I tried to get a little bit of heat from his cigar too, don't know if you can notice a bit of red and yellow by the ash?
       

       
      Anyhows, I hope you guys all enjoy this little blast from the past!
