  1. Those are some seriously awesome colours! O_o The contrasts make these some seriously stunning miniatures. *bows* Hmm, I'll have to try that glaze technique...
  2. Ooh red hair is just so hard to paint... but you totally nailed it, this looks awesome! Love the color scheme, it all fits perfectly.
  3. Wow! I especially like the skin and the base, the lava looks so real. I couldn't find any decent tutorials for lava, so I think I'll just use one of your pics as inspiration.
  4. Wow, the inking came out so nice... I'm very impressed! Congrats!
  5. Oh thanks! It really was a useful read, and you've saved me from wondering what could have gone wrong on my "frosted" mini... :P Then I think I'll go invest in a can of Dullcote and keep the anti-shine for the washes.
  6. Thank you so much everyone! I have to admit, I had read a lot of blogs and stuff before buying BONES figures, and I really had a hard time deciding whether or not this would be a good idea. But seeing how I've already done 3 minis in metal, I thought I could risk the plastic, now that I know how to work my craft paints. And I was actually impressed by the quality of the minis, considering the price they cost! It'll be perfectly fine for me, as I have no intention of becoming a real professional like some of you. I love the forums, you're all so great. I mean, you can't get jealous of
  7. Oi everyone! My fiancé has given me the BESTEST (yes, bestest!) birthday gift EVER: over 30 miniatures which arrived just yesterday, along with a sample bottle of MSP paint (thank you Reaper packaging team)! :D I finally feel like I'm getting serious about this hobby. This, and I've watched easily over 5 hours of YouTube vids just about painting techniques... Let's be honest, I'm no professional, and I'm not using professional tools (except for my brushes). But this is fun! I'll be posting my work here, and if you have some tips especially for the scenery, I'll be glad to read it
  8. Finishing a mini gives such a boost of energy! I'm super excited to show it to everyone! ^_^

  9. Hello everyone! After publishing a post about my first mini here, I listened to your precious advice and started gearing up for a new mini: the Mermaid (03554). It took me so long from the first mini to this one because I tried a few things on it... I first added a little starfish on the rock beside the crab, just because. And I felt her mermaid tail was a little boring, so I added little fins on it! Took me ages to manage to stick those tiny things on there, and it was my first time with green stuff. Yeah, lots of first times on this mini! Later I added some sand behind the rocks to
  10. Wow, thanks so much everyone for your encouragements and tips! I'm very happy I became a member of the Reaper forums. In perfect lighting I know I see some of my shading, but yeah in the pictures and most lighting I realize it isn't enough. I'll work on that! For those wondering, yes, I have painted other things before, mostly wooden figurines and stuff (usually between 5-10"), like nutcrackers and nesting dolls. I've become pretty used to working with my craft paint, and so I'm a bit reluctant to try other brands... Oh well, I may buy one here or there, at least to give them a chance. I
  11. Hey everyone! This is my first try ever at painting a miniature, and also my very first post. I can't believe the talent some of you guys have, and I'll practice hard to hone my skills and share some more miniatures. This is turning out to be a lot of fun, and I can't wait to paint again! Please give me your opinion, and if you have tips on how to improve, don't be shy. I used basic craft acrylics plus matte and gloss sealers, no airbrush (can't afford it, meh).
