  1. Looks good! Hard to tell from the photos; do you think pre-shading the armour made a difference?
  2. I think he’s a mage? The “flute” could be a scroll case maybe? The “knife” might be a spell effect? Really hard to tell.
  3. Nothing sad about it. Your stuff always looks great. Wish I could paint half as well as you!
  4. I have noticed in your previous pieces that sometimes the NMM highlights appear a little more muted, which is actually a great aesthetic for these retro pieces. I would have assumed it was a stylistic choice if you hadn't said otherwise; it looks great. On these two pieces, you really nailed the chainmail highlights in particular though. The chainmail specifically looks a lot like TMM to me.
  5. Wow! Your NMM just keeps getting crisper and more striking with each piece. Beautiful work! EDIT: It is NMM, right? It looks so good it has me second guessing.
  6. Although, the adjective "loud" is a relative concept, and needs to be understood contextually. For instance, a "loud whisper" is likely to be significantly less loud than a "loud explosion". Similarly, I'd argue that a "loud knock" doesn't need to anywhere near as loud as a "loud car engine". When I DM, I describe it as the sound of metal door knocker striking a wooden door firmly. I've read about DM's who make it a deafeningly loud gunshot-like sound and that just seems a bit obnoxious and over the top to me. YMMV of course.
  7. I have a 1st printing of the 5E PHB and the loud noise has always been a part of the knock spell in 5e. There was no errata.
  8. Wow! That is one fine looking windmill! Better hope there aren't any roving Don Quixotes nearby. Beautiful work!
  9. Great first mini! You're off to a good start. Welcome to the forums!
  10. Started this guy almost a year ago (early June 2020, I think). Haven't done any painting since then. Hoping to get back into it, but it might still be a little while before I do. Posting this topic in an effort to rekindle the fire. Aside from some touch-ups and additional blending/layering, the body/heads are basically done. This wings and back are completely unpainted at present. A few firsts for me on this mini: First time sculpting fur: I sculpted maybe a square centimetre's worth of fur to gap fill where the goat head joins the main body. I think it blends reasonably well
  11. Thanks guys. Hopefully I'll have some new stuff to show off soon.
  12. Thanks Glitterwolf! Looking forward to having more to show you! :)
  13. Here's another one from about 6 years ago. Again, not quite up to my current standards, but still serviceable. In particular, the way I did the gore on the sword is kind of goofy; it was my first attempt at such an effect. Enjoy!
  14. Hello Reaper peeps. I haven't painted anything in over a year, but I keep daydreaming about getting back into it. That tends to be how things go with me; I paint in fits and starts—nothing for a year or more (sometimes several years) and then a few months of productivity. In an effort to try to light the fire again, I've decided to post some of my old minis that I've never posted previously. Here's something I painted about 6 years ago during my second most recent painting period. It's not quite up to the standard I achieved during my last painting frenzy a year ago, but I think it's pretty de
  15. I have used both brush-on and spray Dullcote on Bones and never had an issue. The brush-on needs to be thoroughly shaken, however. I've also used Reaper's brush on sealer and got good results. EDIT: Also worth noting that I have used spray-on Dullcote on Bones in South-Western Ontario during the summer without issue. I know that results can vary depending on the climate, so it might be helpful for you to know that I've had good results in your neck of the woods.
