    Kaladrax In Seven Days! Buglips is Crazy! WIP

    The pockmarked stone makes me think of Lava rock. Maybe the ancient dragon blasted the temple to the God With a Big Head to molten slag which solidified like that.
  3. Why is there so little love for Beast? He's smart, he's hairy and he's blue! What isn't to love.
  4. Lineman's pliers are great for cutting wires and other metal things that are too big for you average soldering kit wire cutters. I've done chain link fences with mine. Every house should have a pair. Or, as Cash said, its a good start for a tassel. The sword looks great.

    That ogre is pretty awesome for a "quick job"

    Goblins are finished. I'm reasonably happy with the improvement in shadow and highlighting compared to my L2PK2 figures http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/51152-learning-to-paint-from-the-l2pks/. I was able to do a second thinned coat to blend them with the midtone without completely washing out either. Still need better control though, maybe a nicer brush would help. L2PK 3 and 4 are in the mail, hurry up!

    I added some more shadow and a yellowish highlight to the skin. I'm not sure it looks so different in this lighting with the phone camera. Next up, hats!

    I painted the various knickknacks (mostly on their backs) and then added shadow last night. I like the look of the goblins on the right, but over all I am not happy with how the shadow blends. I'm not sure if that's just the way it needs to be for contrast or I should go over with another coat closer to the mid tone.

    Awesome shelf. Now I know what to put on my Christmas list.

    Maglok's workbench

    Those are my normal painting conditions ... this might explain much. I'm struggling with blending too, good luck!

    Yes, that does help! I'm mostly working with the paints in L2PK[1-3] so I'm trying to figure out what will work for the highlights and shadows. I've ordered a couple of more paints to fill in holes (orange, purple, copper, brown liner), but haven't committed my budget to buying full sets of triads. I was thinking to just add a darker green (grass green) to the olive for the shadow and olive+sunlight yellow for the highlight, but I have six Goblins so I'll try your colors too.

    Thanks. I can see now that the contrast definitely needs to be enhanced. I have plenty of miniatures, better get painting. I think part of the lack of contrast is from too heavy a hand with dry brushing and not enough layers with highlights.
