  1. Thanks, guys! was a fun mini to paint :)
  2. Painted up another bad guy for my players to encounter! Used contrast paints and light drybrushing on the stone Added the chompy goo-gore with glossy red
  3. The green does look fantastic, But the leather effects on the bracer and wraps on the spear are amazing!
  4. I agree with Doug, start with some Woodland Scenics, the ground up foam flock material, and see what you think, then add some tufts to that, if it adds texture/character etc. I mix several colors of flock, and add in some rock/cat litter as well, to get a nice feel, depending on the size of the figs and base (I paint 6mm to 30mm figs, with many to a base for gaming) I've tried static grass from a few companies, never with great success and now mainly use flocking and tufts grab some old figs and experiment! :) having a warband, army, etc on similar bases really adds to the flavor of miniature battles to me! (not sure how to resize the pics, sorry if they're too big)
  5. Thanks for the brilliant advice! (pun intended...) the 5000K "daylight" 100W equivalent LED bulb suggestion works GREAT in my old desk lamps! I have one on each side of me, and i went from straining to see the details to painting relaxed again! (the joys of middle aged eyes!)
  6. I agree with washes of both, I do that on my Ork buggies etc and on lots of my bones figs for RPG :)
  7. Nice video, thanks! Can you tell how you built the light arch, though? I'd like to see how that works, and do you think it gives you better lighting than the LED panel? I've got three swing arm lamps right now... (1 regular bulb, 1 daylight bulb, and 1 Ott light) and still feel like I'm in shadows :)
  8. Hi all! Finished up my Slaaneshi Cult with some cheerleaders! (Inner Circle painting comp) Used the Golden Skin triad with nice results (to me!) Still working on the edge blending, but I'm happy with them for gaming level! Hair is craft store pink with Reaper Punk Rock Pink wash Metals are layering and washes of three different companies (craft, reaper, citadel) Tried a technique I read here for the eyes, using reddish liner/wash to accent the green eyes Drummer's beard is the auburn and redhead triad (Now back to painting my RPG groups characters (yay Bones!)) Chris the Tall
  9. Very nice! Are you getting the whole set done?! I've tried to, but keep getting distracted... I almost miss the old cardboard standups...
  10. oops! sorry about that, I'll try to edit Chris
  11. Not sure if this got posted in the above, but a stretchable line made for model airplane wires, carried at many model train and plane stores I've been to called EZ Line several sizes and colors (ex .003 Charcoal) It stretches, so you glue one end, when dry stretch to other end of bow and glue. I've seen it on figs and it looks great! (even on 15mm archers for ancients games) Mike (from Bobe's Hobby Shop) uses it and says it is easy to use I haven't tried it myself, though Chris
  12. Thanks, y'all! I'll post some more pics as I get the vines woven into the twig/antlers and the flowers on the tips the flower was inspired by my lavender plants that are blooming right now in the garden :) Chris
  13. oops, forgot to add tags... how do I go back and edit for that?
  14. Hi all! I'm working on my Treeman Ancient from *cough cough* some other company... I'm trying to keep spring bright colors, from the new foliage with a yellow green, new growth branches with that faint redish green stem Lavender flower pattern on the staff I'll be adding some foliage tufts next, as well as flowers and moss (mostly from model railroad terrain gear) happy so far, except for that loincloth thing... maybe needs lots of moss? appreciate any tips/advice! (pics aren't that great, still trying to learn photo techniques with the new phone) Chris
  15. Beautiful work, and perfect timing, as I'm working on a flock of Harpies, and have been trying to get a handle on purple flesh tones... Thank you for the inspiration! Chris
