  1. The blue claws/horns was an interesting choice, but it really paid off! What colors did you use for those? Also, I love the blending of the brown to tan on the wings.
  2. Awesome! I like the way you tied in the lantern w/ the eyes, and the purple accents on his tunic is nice! Good color choices all around.
  3. Can I ask a (possibly) stupid question? Being new-ish to painting minis, what is the difference between the liners and other paints? I just got my paints from the CAV Kickstarter, and it came w/ the Grey Liner (09065), plus I'll be getting the Bones III liners listed above. So other than the applications as a primer listed here, what else is it designed to do?
  4. As a condition of painting it, you should have asked him to allow it to become your wizard's new familiar once the session was done! Great job!
  5. Wow! And my 6 year old daughter is captivated! Her exact quote "My mind is blow away!" I think you found a fan... She said I should pay $2 million for it. I think she's right... if only my wallet agreed!
  6. This was the first mini I'd ever painted. This was a case where the amazing sculpt did all the work! With this model, I was able to pick up 5 bottles of acrylic paint, a very cheap set of brushes, and end up with a mini I'm still very proud of today. What I learned: This mini was a simple base-coat and wash, with a tiny bit of dry brushing done on the eyes and buckles (with lots of repainting from failed attempts). I didn't even have any reaper paints at the time... I used 4 Martha Stewart Acrylics (watered down a good deal). It was metallic silver for the blades, satin black for
  7. This was the 4th mini I painted. Stephanie is a human Alchemist / Evangelist of Calistria (thus the black w/ gold highlights). You can't see it in the pics that well, but this mini had some mold issues with the far side of her face. I played into it and actually tried to bring them out, making the backstory such that she was scarred by an early experiment that backfired (which helped explain her low CHA). A fun example of how a mini can help define the character (even a mini with a defect)! What I learned: much more about shading/highlighting. I also experimented with some c
  8. Hi there! Newb painter, putting up a few of the completed minis I've done. I started painting with the Bones I Kickstarter, but haven't really done nearly enough (until now!). This was the 3rd mini I'd painted. Uluj was a Gillman Two-Weapon fighter I used in the Pathfinder Skull & Shackles campaign. My original concept was that his skin would look blue-ish (think kid who's been in the pool way too long), but it really didn't work out like I imagined it. Instead, I re-painted his skin w/ the Medium Skin triad after the rest of the figure was complete, but I kept the purplis
  9. My kids and I just started playing... I have them on my short list to work on, so I'll post a few in here as I'm going.
  10. So a follow up question on care: I had a W&N Cotman sable brush that didn't last very long... not a ton of separation, but the ends curled and now it is impossible to do any detail with it. I just got a new W&N Kolinsky Series 7, and want to make sure I don't make the same mistake twice! In the past, I'd clean the brush after each session with The Masters soap, but rinse it well after (obviously hadn't read this or other threads about keeping the soap in to shape/condition). I also used running water from the faucet, which I'm assuming is too harsh for the brush, so I'm chang
