Awesome - that exposed leg adds a lot of character to the piece.

Yeah, not quite as conservative and prudish as one might think!

I think you did a phenomenal job with the yellow, which is always a struggle for me. 

For me yellow was hard too, especially just go get it to cover completely.  I started out with sun yellow, but then after a bunch of layers, put some palomino gold on it afterwards to get rid of some of the uncovered spots, then afterwards started working with oranges and browns to shade and then lemon yellow and white as highlights.

She looks pretty! :wub:

 

I love the vibrant colours!

 

As for yellow being difficult, use Scale 75, it has a great coverage, it's my brand for metals and yellows these days.

I might have to try Scake 75 yellow, even though I’m actually pretty faithful to Reaper paints, and it’s hard to get anything here in Omaha directly except Citadel and Vallejo. I’ve got to do a reorder for paint because that female efreet calls to my soul.

The Holy Babe is a BEAUTIFUL creation. Her face is LOVELY; the metalwork is WONDERFUL; AND red & yellow is a favorite color combination for me. VERY WELL DONE!

Beautiful vibrant colors - outstanding yellow!

Thanks Iridil, yellow is rough, but I think it turned out okay this time!

Awesome color scheme, and smooth blending. Beautiful.

Thank you Mr. Knekk, I tried going for bright and bold, hopefully it came out okay!

      With my Cadian army nearly finished and my wife's army at a playable state I decided to take a break from 40k painting. Since I've been painting for our actual armies for so long I decided to start a new WIP thread rather than use my old random projects thread (the "Too Many Projects" thread will be replaced by this one).
       
      But before getting too far ahead I'd like to show everyone just how bad my box got while painting for 40k and killteam. This of course doesn't include any GW boxes I may or may not have on hand to paint "just for fun". I swear I'll paint those Skaven sooner or later.
       
      Though some of the figures were closer to completion, I simply couldn't resist painting one I've had my eye on for months (I mean this quite literally as the figure sat on my lamp's base since I first got it and probably ended up in the background of many of my progress shots). When I first pulled this from a box of goodwill I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This figure just screamed Don Quixote, at least to me it did. So that's exactly how I painted it and though it may just be a simple paint job I'm already thinking about creating a new character just to use it.

      Hello everybody!
       
      So last night finally finished this little lady, a very petit mage sculpted by Julie Guthrie in the early eighties.  With this one, I kind of felt that her shoes were so petite that I didn't want to put neither grass nor cornmeal (for dirt) in front of them, as to not completely cover them up, so I just did a super simple base without anything.  
       
      I really like this figure and didn't realize how much detail she has until I got her primed and really started working on her.  I had no idea she had a rose on the top of her staff for example.

       
      and all the bangles she's got on and  with the chains on her left hand, couldn't really appreciate it in her unpainted state.  Before I primed her, she kind of reminded me of the Julie Guthrie Hill Giant I painted recently, where you couldn't be sure how her face was going to really look, but when you got her primed and painted she looked a lot more decent.  
       
      I thought the highlights on the cape were going to pop out a little bit more, but oh well. Next time I'll do deeper shadows and higher highlights!
       
      So hope you all enjoy!

      So it's been a few weeks since I've finished a minis, been kind of busy, but finally got this guy done last night,  another Hackmaster figure that was picked up by Ral Partha, this time a mature-looking wizard with a nice wooden staff.  As always, it took forever to decide colors and with his inner clothing, the lilac, that was the easiest, but after that, took a while to figure out the green in his cloak and blue on the outside.
       

       
      He has a little potion at his belt, tried to do a liquid effect, when I look at the photo, not so sure how it turned out though.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Here’s my next big project, a 1984 Ral Partha dragon. This old fellow was in pieces when I received him, and painted. I’ve cleaned him up, removed the old epoxy glue, pinned him back together, and tonight realized it looks like he’s rising out of the water. He needs a bigger base, which I have (75x46mm oval). But I have never done any basing, and I’d like to create a base that extends the appearance of water. I have no idea how to do that, so any and all suggestions and illustrations are welcome!
