Looking great already!

 

Just a process question: Are you going to paint the hands/arms after you attach them or are you painting them now as you go along and will then attach them?

Thanks very much!  I'm actually painting them at the same time separately, so every time I add a wash I add it to the separate arms and weapons as well.  This is the first time I've tried painting separate pieces and right now for example I only primed the hand and glove on the dear lady and the two hands on the axe of our noble gentleman.  When I get to what I feel is the appropriate point (not sure when that is yet), I'll glue those pieces on, finish priming them and then will probably paint them close to last.

And started working on their eyes. started with lemon yellow, then put some ghost white over them before “the dot”. Next will color the dot in. Some kind of blue, they’ll be, probably true blue. DF41A25E-622F-4FE6-BB3C-7E80AB3CB714.thumb.jpeg.171606ab1d724ef9174c93c0305f16cc.jpegEDB48AD7-6D9C-4D47-8D3C-D7BDB8904B1A.thumb.jpeg.864eefab15be19254828cff2823ab173.jpeg

Didn’t get too far last night as I’m working on some other minis at the same time but managed to get some linen white on her tunic  8F733EAB-BE40-4DBF-B73C-AB21DE7E261C.thumb.jpeg.41eefecbe66c1eb7f40779797406b41e.jpeg

Got a little farther tonight. The chick’s tunic is probably more or less done with the white, and got my first few coats for he armor of the guy, which started out with dark elf highlights. Looking too dark in my  photo but still working on it. 66B2C6A3-D6EA-40CF-B038-CBA2B2B8E7F3.thumb.jpeg.692929af82b55d220356eaf92d83fc3f.jpeg0ABCD9FF-4EC3-4308-9286-A9AB5AC5F4C9.thumb.jpeg.d3d8b6bb92bab3cf556514ea6701c621.jpeg

Was taking pictures of some other miniatures, so used my normal camera, not my iPhone against a black backdrop...

      My thinking when painting this guy was that his scales would all be gemstones. When D&D dragons were conceived, I think it was a big mistake to have the good dragon be metals and the evil ones colors. The evil ones should have been named after gemstones: ruby, sapphire, emerald, onyx, and opal. So here is the ruby dragon, in his volcanic home. I hope you like it. 
       
      Thanks a ton to everyone in the WIP forum for advice and encouragement!

      Hello all,
      here are some more Shadowrun figures that I've been working on.  Two excellent figures, probably sculpted back in the nineties by Dave Summers, two Shadowrun Dwarven Mercenaries.  As usual, so hard to decide upon colors, but I think they worked out reasonably well.
       
      The first one is a delicate dwarven lady:

       
      and her stalwart male companion:
       

       
      First time I've ever painted modern weaponry, so hoping they turned out okay.  With choosing colors, in an effort to make my life a little bit easier, I gave them the same color overcoat, just painted different color detailing on them. 
       
      I find that a nice change of genre is pretty fun, I'm enjoying painting something a little less fantasy and more sci-fi for a while. I'll hope to have more of these coming soon!
       
      Enjoy!

      I know there are plenty of RPG players on the board, and Zweihander just won ENnies for Best Game and Product of the Year at Gen Con.  I missed the first campaign, but strongly considering jumping in on this one.

      This was another ina large collection of oldies that my high school friends gave me. Trying to make the scales look like garnets or rubies. Please critique!

      So I was looking at my minis box yesterday and decide that it may be wise to get them done ! haha , like kid who want to cake and mother saying you will get another one when you finish the first one haha.
       
      Anyway I though I just do an ongoing wip, self motivation ( well actually I am quite motivate to get those in shape ).
       
      Primed couple minis so they are ready for paint ( minus the 2 Cmon one since I need to get some putty on those to cover the obvious seam du to the assembly ).
       
      And I am going to start with those bad girls...actually Raging Heroes box I ordered , finally get onto glue all those parts , they are really super small ! Kinda like Wizkids size if not worse lol , well for those at last.

       
      The darksword frogs are for a new scene / vignette but I will paint the figure first this time and worry about the vignette after :D..
       
      Have to think about my color scheme for those lust elves now , I and I think I will get onto dark purple / blue tone for clothings and more pale skin / wolf grey kind of mix maybe for the skin..
      This time since that's a set I will try to paint them in batch so I keep color somewhat homogeneous between them.
       
      Well I guess I have a paint schedule for couple week coming :D...
