    You might could try (test on his shield first maybe?), thinning out some pure black with water and apply. It will wash the black paint over it, dulling it a tad. I darkened up some green and washed it over a leather brown basecoat on another figure, Arthal Nightblade. Gave it a nice touch. really broke up the brown enough that it wasn't "bright" and gave it a decent camo look, or.. a decent green cloak with dirt on it. :)
  2. So when I picked up the LTPK, I also ordered this guy. I have an affinity to rangers, altho by old school rules, my rangers would lose their "good ranger" status and be labeled a fighter.. Anyhow; Officially I painted the skeleton archer 2nd (making Arthal #3), but the skeleton was just so... primitive, I think I spent about 10 minutes on it at the most. Arthal was a pain for me.. Especially around the quiver. Half his face was distorted (thankfully the blindside), dunno if it was a production error for a metal mini or what. I was a little disappointed, but its not terribly noticed unless you look specifically at it head on. At first, I wanted to give him a nice bright white cloak with some goldish color trim work. Well the white paint didn't apply like I wanted, it kept revealing the start and end of brush strokes presenting a blotchy appearance. I may order another down the road just to continue practicing on. I instead opted for a darker, more 'cloak of the bat' feel. The tunic is based in leather brown, with a wash made of viper green mixed with either some pure black & harvest brown to tone the green down, or with 1 or the other.. I forget. I know now why its good to keep a journal of mixtures. Notes: in some spots it looks like white is coming through in spots.. it does not look that way in person. The front of the cloak has highlights on the layers, I did tone it down. Touched up the face & ear Top of the bow was corrected. And the right side of the belt pouch also was touched up. Scout's honor.
  3. This is my first paint job. I have many WIP shots, just trying to get my government internet to cooperate. ;) Thoughts?

    New guy greetings

    Wow, I certainly did not expect such a great welcome this quick! I look forward to learning from you all. I really enjoy this painting thing, I should have got into it 2 years ago when I first saw a buddy painting WH 40k minis. The start up seemed too much for me at the time. But no time like the present, right? I'll try to remember as many of the rules as possible, no more than 20, no less than 20, don't piss off the dragon, and the barb likes his coffee dressed pretty. Once I get home I'll see what I can do about finding a host site for my photos and throw them in the WiP section. I will toot my horn a little and say I'm impressed with the couple I've done. Thank you again for the great welcome. Cheers and beers to you all.

    Looks nice! I've scrubbed this guy down several times already not being happy with what I had done. :)
  6. I'm painting this one currently (I too got the LTPK). I've restarted twice now being unhappy at how it has been coming out.

    New guy greetings

    Hi folks, I've been reading and learning, watching and doing, and figured it was time to mingle. :) I'm a new painter, for D&D use (atm). I have painted 3 reaper minis so far, and working on #4. I really like the feedback I've seen when people comment on someone's work, so it is my hope to get better at this too. Maybe one day I'll try doing a diorama, but that wont be for quite a while. Anyway, look forward to conversing further. Happy painting!
