    I tend to watch a lot of TV because my partner enjoys it. I also enjoy playing games on Playstation, watching movies and of course painting minis.

  1. So to be clear @Inarah, Krylon Crystal is okay on Bones specifically or just on other figures?
  2. So Dullcote is okay on Bones? Any experience using a dedicated mini sealer like Citadel or Army Painter on Bones?
  3. Hello friends. I had a question about spray varnish. All of my painted minis currently reside in my glass display case but unfortunately this gets direct sun for a period of time every day. I want to seal the minis to protect them from the sun as much as possible. I know Citadel gloss sealer protects from UV but my FLGS doesn't have any and honestly I am wondering if there is anything cheaper. I have a mix of materials for my minis, including metal (including actual lead lol), Bones plastic and GW plastic Warhammer mins. I know gloss protects from chips and matte kills shine but I was wo
  4. Hi guys. Finished this guy a week or two ago and finally got around to taking some pics. I started to let go of perfectionism on him, which is what I've been working towards. I didn't layer highlight every surface or stress about the spot I found near the end with bare primer. I worked on layering the skin and did some texture on the leather straps and called it a day. I am happy with the layering on the skin and also with the silver strips of metal where the paint has worn away. His armour is a lot like my job on Kegg because I was happy with him. Let me know what you think!
  5. I love the spots! I tried doing almost exactly this in snow-leopard colours not too far back and had no success, yours turned out way better!!
  6. $50?!? Holy turds! I don't remember how much I spent on him but I got him when he was new, so less than $20 or maybe even under $15. So that means I've been carting him around for 30 years and just finally put paint on him! Thanks for the comments on the layering. I think one of the reasons I have trouble is the work. I hate the idea of doing something for hours and hours and then it doesn't look right and I have to do it all over again, but by playing it safe and not pushing myself I'm not learning. Those are some things I have to work through. But I digress. I was trying to thin
  7. Just finished this guy. My painting somehow slowed down during a pandemic/summer vacation when it should have sped up but that's how things go. This is a full-lead storm giant from Ral Partha, the stamp under his base says 1990. I thought he was a cloud giant the whole time, that's why he's so blue! I was working on getting my layering back up to snuff because either my early attempts were beginner's luck or I somehow forgot to do it because I've been struggling lately. I also should have picked a different colour for his tunic instead of blue since he has blue skin, but I swear the paint
  8. Wow, amazing. Love the weapon blades and the dead flesh. This is wayy better than mine will look when I finally get to him.
  9. Here is my Dragoth. This is the original metal figure on his throne. I looked at the etching on the base, this guy has been in my collection waiting for paint since '96, 24 years! This is him. I really like how I was able to get the rocks of the throne to all be different colours, or different enough to make them all look a little different at least (learned that from Black Magic Craft YouTube channel). What could have worked better was more contrast overall, I'm really struggling with highlighting. He was also looking way too shiny at one point so I used Nuln Oil and Seraphim Sepia on t
  10. Oh wow those are the most un-boringest browns ever!! Those are fantastic patterns on his wings! Widdle paw and widdle feets, LMAO. Did you try flipping him over to shoot the undersides of the wings? No rule says all photos must be of a figure sitting upright!
  11. I like him too, great job on those eyes! I also love the lighter brown on the feathers at the edges of his forearms, great for visual interest! And don't worry about being "careless" with the wash. Unless I'm doing something special my favourite technique with a wash is "slobber it everywhere".
  12. I wouldn't dwell on that colour scheme at all, he's fantastic! So many details, and every one of them is distinct and shaded and highlighted and edged perfectly! So many different colours and yet none of them seem out of place or clashy. This must have been so much work. He's absolutely beautiful!
  13. Those look great! Nice metals on the hobgoblin but my favourite is also the bugbear. I have several from that same set and painted one that actually turned out pretty good. I am planning to paint more of them, maybe I'll start with him!
  14. I love it too. That top down shot really shows how great the chitin shell looks. The varied greens was just contrast paint? I've been thinking of picking up some Apothecary White just so I can actually have the courage to try painting something white for once lol.
  15. I had seen those on nature shows so I knew it was a thing, I just didn't know it was actually called Brain Coral!
