    Priming my pewter

    If you're just getting one primer color I would go for a lighter gray, white could probably work too. Then you can use a dark wash to make the crevices dark again. With black primer you'll need to do more undershading for lighter colors.

    Grey Maidens

    Lookin quite good! I like the choice of colors they compliment each other well. Say what's the male mini? I think I need one of those.

    Kev!'s 77059: Orc Berserker

    I'll second the blue skin, and good job on the shading too!
  5. Hi all I got these guys finished up about 2-3 weeks ago, and am just now getting to posting them. For Damar I tried to make mine look similar to another mini that someone had painted and posted. I changed up some of the smaller details to make mine bit different. For Damiel, I think his leather ended up too dark, for my current group of mini's I'm using a much lighter base color. Should I have made the bottles more reflective? The next group of mini's I've done the Zenithal style priming on them, so I'm hoping that the shading ends up being better on them. I'm done priming my mini's in straight black, there's just so much undershading that I have to do. Also for the inspiration gallery, does it have a different login than the forums? Thanks!

    7002 Baran Blacktree with Painting Guide

    Great looking shading! Practicing drawing the emblems on the shield is something I'm going to do when I get my next shield painted up. I hope that in the future I can get my armor to look as good as yours!

    Brush care experiment

    I've been storing my brushes like this in a cup of clean water for about a year now. Most of the brushes in the pic are probably 5-6 months old. I haven't noticed the water degrading them, except one, the aluminum ferule on the oldest is corroding a bit, but it's over a year old.

    Reaper & Darksword Minis

    Hi It's been a while since I've posted. Here are my most recent minis painted in November/December. Also my first two Darksword mini's are in the group. I'll try to get better at photography, I made a Light box, but the results weren't good, so I just placed the mini's on the desk. Can't decide flash or no flash, I feel the flash brings out the highlights more though. Also the mini's have a weird mix of NMM attempts and Metallic paints. Mini's are; Anduriel - Reaper Bjorn - Reaper Maria - Reaper Trista - Reaper Petyr - Darksword Roose - Darksword Thanks for Looking

    Reaper & Darksword Minis

    Thank you all for the kind comments. Hi Necromancer, I definitely do like the Darksword mini's a lot, but for table top play I think I'm going to be using mostly the reaper mini's. Some of the Dark sword minis like the Roose Bolton & Petry Baelish will probably be just fine for table top. But some of the others, I guess you could say that they are sculpted to have really realistic proportions which makes them great for display mini's, but not very durable for tabletop play. See the images below, I've already primed them black so they are a bit hard to see. In the first picture you can see Damar by Reaper, and a Darksword Sorceress. The mage staff on the sorceress is much thinner, which looks great from a aesthetic point, but would likely get damaged very easily. In the second picture you can compare Lysette by Reaper to a Darksword Fighter, notice that the mini on the right has a very thin lifelike profile blade. Again looks great, but this one will be a display mini also. The Darksword minis are also kinda on the tall side, you can definitely use them with Reaper Minis, but they might not fit in with the old 25mm (actual) minis from the old days.

    77171: Stone Golem

    The golem is really good, but the base is really really awesome! Great job with the shading.

    Dwarf Forge Priestess - 77571 (Bones)

    I think the black hair came out very very good, all the highlights look to be in the right places too.

    Ellen Stone 80003

    The leather looks quite good, the only C&C is that I would make her eyebrows darker so they match her hair.

    Zombicide:BP NPC's 1 [Picture heavy]

    Lookin really good, I especially like the eyes, they're awesome! The color schemes work really well too.
  19. Very cool thread, thank you for sharing, your originals look very good for starting out.
  20. I do like the new one a lot, but I'd say I like the original a bit more still. I'll be sure to get this one too though.
  21. The shading looks really good!

    The Twilight Order

    Very nice looking conversions!
  23. Hi Here's a couple of my recent mini's. Both of them are them are metal. I modified Eando to have a Halberd, which I made using weapons from the Crusaders weapons pack. I used a hobby knife to cut his hand away from his thigh, then used epoxy to try to recreate part of his hand. I added a gladius style sword to the Valkyrie, i added it to be back side because I didn't want it interfering with the shield hand, But in retrospect I think I could have added it to her left hip instead.Unfortunately I took the 3rd pic later, and it suffers from poor lighting. I tried to shade both these mini's to have opposing light and dark edges on their weapons, which is kind of visible in the pictures.

    Zombicide: Green Horde

    I did the late Kickstarter for the Core set and Friends and Foes. This plus my original Black Plgue stuff can all be used for D&D type games also, or maybe a Zombicide campaign...I'm liking this last idea.
  25. Hmm I'd have to say I like the last one the most! They all look good though. What material are the bigger bases made of? Cork?
