  1. Thanks! Probably because I'm an amateur like most of the people painting these in the 80s. haha
  2. I did not. It does look a bit different; that's why i wasn't sure. Perhaps it was bent by the previous owner. found some pics from before i painted it - shows grenadier 1984
  3. This one took me quite some time. I just couldn't get it to look good, but i think it turned okay in the end.
  4. I love the old figures too. I'm slowly building my collection of the old grenadier dragons. I have 8 so far. I will keep posting them as I complete them!
  5. Just finished painting my largest model - it took me 4 different epoxies and 3 different glues but I finally found something that kept him together (JB Weld SteelStik) Not the most realistic model, but I think it has character! Hopefully I did it justice.
  6. I don't really know what a Grunch Warrior is so I just went with whatever colors felt right :)
  7. Just started painting minis, thought I'd share this one. This is my fourth mini I've painted; trying to improve my shading and highlight skills.
  8. Yes, grenadier cyclops dragon. Okay, i'll post them individually!
  9. Still working on highlights... adding bases now!
  10. SO a couple of months ago i bought a bunch of miniatures and painting supplies, finally had some time to start and this is my first attempt. I tried following some zenithal priming and glazing/highlighting technique tutorials on youtube. I would very much appreciate any tips, constructive criticism! EDIT: added my second and third attempts. Tips still appreciated :) Thanks for all the feedback so far. I'm still painting holding the base because I haven't had a chance to go out and grab some tacky tape. I will grab some today. For the moment, I've been using a matte sealer in a spray can; is this okay or should I get something for my air brush? Still learning to use the airbrush - flow is a bit much as it's hard for me to just press down the right amount to get less paint flow. I also have a big pewter dragon that doesn't seem to want to stay together no matter how much green stuff and super glue i put on it. I guess i'll have to resort to trying pinning. WIll post results when i get around to it!
  11. Thanks a lot! I'm new to painting minis so i'll probably do some more common ones before i bust the wrappers off of these so i'll have time to think about it.
  12. Just got these! Kind of afraid to open them as I don't know how valuable they are (but I inevitably will). Have any of you seen these painted before? I'm having a hard time finding examples online, and i'd like to do something unique. Thanks!
