I picked out 14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt to practice the lessons in Bones LTPK #1. I'm aiming for "tabletop" quality with this paint job.
Here's the miniature with most of the basecoating done:
The colors in use are:
09050 Antique Gold for the gold accents 09052 Shadowed Steel for the armor 09053 Honed Steel for the sword 09056 Templar Blue for the edge of the tabard, the sword hilt, and the edge of the tabard (or whatever that is) 09064 Brown Liner for lining between the blue and yellow on the tabard 09074 Palomino Gold for the tabard and the undercoat for the gold accents 09110 Oiled Leather for the belt 29843 HD Solid Black for the black
The white patches on the tabard are 09108 Brush-on White Primer because I scraped off the paint there. (I got some basing material stuck there, decided I'd paint over it, and then decided to scrape it off and make it look better.)
My next tasks are to repaint the reprimed parts of the tabard after the primer cures and fix any painting errors before moving on to the wash portion of the exercise. (Any shadows you see in the pictures are probably a result of the lighting rather than any painted effects.)
After I'm done with this, I suppose I should paint Sir Forscale.
So here's my latest creation. I tried a different technique this time around by "overbrushing" for the the highlights on the skin and it was . . . ok. I can see it as a great way to speed the process along for a speedier paint job, and might be great for painting armies and units, but it does have its limits when it comes to blending. I'm also not sold on the blending in the armor as it did not blend real smoothly despite my best attempts but its a start at least. As always, any ideas, suggestions, critiques, feedback, etc. are most appreciated!
So i started this piece for a competition over on Reddit and didn't finish in time. I feel like I should be able to make a final push to get this done in one sitting, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the base is supposed to be. The bare metal looks like it's supposed to be a stump, however the two wedge shaped bits (picked out in grey) and the lip under the surface that she's standing on don't make any sense.
I just can't wrap my head around that last bit to get this done and no one seems to have painted this and posted picks anywhere for me to use as reference. Anyone have any idea what that's actually supposed to be?
(Yes I know, the face needs a bit of fixing and the lighting in this shot is terrible, but I don't want to work on it without something else to work on to take breaks from failing to make the eyes look right.)

These are the Done, but not Finished images. Hence WiP and not Show Off. Ill post some other WiP images as i clean up my phone.
She was a serious pain to assemble. And painting assembled was also painful. Not a good combo for sanity, but an interesting figure.
I'm starting this thread to show the progress of a Neo-Soviet 15mm army I've been meaning to paint for quite a while .you know the feeling think thats great idea to collect but don't get around to starting them...
Heres the lot that will be painted up most of the Vehicles are from Armies Army (sold to Brigade & the Scene in the UK I believe) the BTR 160s & BTR 290s are nice as there are lots of variants APC's Ambulance, recovery vehicles etc which will work well for scenarios which we hope to play.
Time to get these out of Storage
A lot of Vehicles
Heavy support from the QRF range
Air support / transport (I think this was from the Critical Mass games collection)
Infantry (AA which I think Brigade has now)
Extra bits such a crew, disembarked crew, machine guns, stowage to add to vehicles
Some GZG Robots to be used as mobile gun platforms
So as you can see quite a big force I'll keep this thread going as I add to it over the year, I may add a couple of more items as I have no proper tanks in the force and brigade models has now reproduced its 6mm range into 15mm
