Oooh, I like these a lot!  The colors you chose are great!  Can you tell me what you used? 

 

I used Reaper MSP paint. I painted the entire model with the skin tone, a grey basecoat. And, I applied a green wash to shade the skin. I then paint the model normally by avoiding the skin. The base coat covers every area that are not the skin. I applied a dark wash in the recessed and underparts, and a brown wash all over the model. I finally applied the highlights to bring out the details. It may appear to be a complicated way of painting, it's not my regular way to paint, I like to try different things.

      Reaper 02954 Crystal Golem painted up to be an "Emerald Guardian" for a 5e D&D game.  I used the airbrush to paint the greens, then used pure white to do all the edge highlights.  I think it would look better if I slowed down and made the edge highlights thinner.  It also doesn't really follow the rules for painting transparent materials like gems.  However, it was a speed painted experiment... so it came out a bit messy.  It looks good on the tabletop though.  Total time on this figure was about two hours.  Most of that time was spend prepping the figure by smoothing out the faces of the crystals so the edges would be nice and sharp for highlighting.  Greenstuff base too about 15 minutes to apply.  Then waited  a day for it to dry.  Airbrushing the primer took about 15 minutes. Then waited a day for it to dry.  Airbrushing the greens took about 15 minutes.  Then waited for a couple of days before getting back to it to do the white edge highlights which took about half an hour.  Speed paint total time...about 5 days.  Super fast!!!

      I somehow forgot to post this guy when I finished him last year. I painted him shortly after I finished his queenly counterpart. I had some issues with the ice on the base so it didn't turn out exactly as I hoped but it's ok. Painting these big guys is sure a whole different experience to painting the "normal" sized minis.

      Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character.
       
      Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date.

      One of my goals this year is to work through my pile of unpainted Bones from all the kickstarters.  First up, a mini that was used as a test piece and then put back to gather dust for a few years.  It was painted fairly quickly using glaze technique, which helped keep me from fussing over the details. One mini off the shelf of shame (or rather, out of the plastic box of shame).

      Presenting Mara Frostraven the Anti-Paladin, with Succubus Shield and Ice Sword. Not quite sure why she seems to be shrinking in the pictures.
       
      Wished I could've done a bit more with her face, it just seemed so small though!
