  1. Very well done. The richness of the red is especially good.
  2. Thanks for the response. I'll give it a go for future posts :-)
  3. I like the rich, dark colors you used for this model. I also like that the cloak has a bit of a shine to it. Far too many painters try to achieve an utterly flat finish, but that's not really how the world looks, and I'm not sure why we want our miniatures to look like that. I blame Testor's Dullcoate and the NMM movement. The satin tone gives the cloak much greater realism.
  4. Could you post a picture that you took that uses the app you mention? I'm not really sure what you mean by the "extra pixels." When you zoom in on a painted mini that is the size of a bottle cap with anything less than a top-grade camera I find the pictures look much, much worse. Thanks for the input, though, I'm always looking to improve my photography.
  5. They are smaller than the more recent GW plastic dwarfs, but not so much so that they look out of place. I will try to add a comparison picture, but I don't like the new plastics so I will have to track something down to compare them too.
  6. Happiest of New Years to you all (if you're into that sort of thing)! With the holidays behind me I hope to get back on track with more frequent posts. Here are three completed models from the Dwarf King's Court set to start off the new year. I was more than a little bit happy to receive that ancient (1982 is pretty venerable if you are 1" tall and made of lead) Citadel Miniatures boxed set for Christmas. My wife scored major points with that one! I have been plugging away at them since tearing the wrapping off, and have finished three so far. They are King Dumin Ironbeard, his bodyguard Orizad Oldrock, and the gnome jester, Corbit Shortstuff. I hope you like them. Comments and questions are always much appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  7. Thanks for the positive feedback. Red can be a bit of a pain, but I've made it a personal goal to paint good reds. I'm glad it's paid off.
  8. I like your color choices a lot. Blue and purple tend to look great in person but then get a little lost in a digital photograph. I bet he looks even better in person. My only criticism, and it is a minor one, is that the purple paint on the the caparison seems a bit thin. It can be hard to get good coverage with purple, same as it can be a challenge with red. I would suggest mixing in a dab of white paint with the first coat of purple, even if you intend it to be darker later on. White paint tends to make things much more opaque. As I said though, it's a minor criticism. You've done a lovely job.
  9. The dismembered corpse is a nice touch. That dude looks like he is into dismemberment of others
  10. Nice work. The basing in particular is striking. You have a lot of great little details worked in there!
  11. Thanks Jessie. Yeah, I would call it either ginger or strawberry blonde. The quilting is by far the most interesting texture on her.
  12. Thanks for the feedback. My only complaint with the model is the scale, really. She is pretty huge for a dwarf!
  13. Here are yesterday's efforts, the Bones version of Freja Fangbreaker. To be honest, I wasn't really sold on this sculpt until I started painting it, but now I am a believer. She has a lot of haughty, kick-elf attitude. I decided to keep the base simple as she has a lot of little details that I didn't want to be overwhelmed by an ornate base. Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking!
  14. Water effects definitely take some practice to get right. You did a wonderful first job. The color shift between scales is very well done. The brown has just enough red to compliment the green nicely.
  15. I'm more than a little bit pleased about my latest acquisition, a box of Perry Miniatures War of the Roses Infantry. These guys are true 28mm scale, but will fit right in with most other 28mm model, even the big-head/big-hand Games Workshop "heroics." I've only had time to assemble and paint two of them. Let me know what you think! Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking (I was going to do a traditional smile face, but this one was too cool to pass up).
  16. Looks like the cheese has fallen of this guy's cracker! Very well done. The owlbear is one of my personal favorite D&D monsters just because it IS so crazy. What's scarier than a pissed off bear? One with a razor sharp beak, huge talons, and an identity crisis!
  17. Very nice. I love your color choices and nice clean style.
  18. There is a tiny dwarf with a hammer on the noble's helmet. And I agree, what is treasure hunting without a little refreshment?
  19. Hey all, I mentioned in a previous thread that I had been working on a Dwarf Treasure Hunters warband for the Mordheim game. Here are the pictures that I have so far. These are all Games Workshop or Marauder Miniatures. Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for taking the time to look!
  20. Great color choices: I love green and purple together, but they can sometimes look a little garish. You muted both colors enough to avoid this. Very nicely done!
  21. The color choices are quite nice. I agree that his crossbow looks a bit "right off the shelf" for a hunter in the wilds. Really digging the base!
  22. The read hair came out very well, and that base is terrific.
  23. I've always liked that model. You did a great job capturing a realistic look to the scales and coloration.
  24. Nicely painted! I have one of those Friar Stones sitting on my painting table. He's so much bigger than a lot of 28mm humans, though, that I'm not quite sure what I'll end up doing with him. Yours might be the kick in the pants I need to start working!
