  1. I would agree that the YouTube videos helped launch me into this hobby a ton. From learning about good products to use to techniques unique to miniatures. Without them my first few would have been a much bigger struggle.
  2. Thanks for the kind words. I was an art/design major in college for a couple years and my favorite part of it was rendering shape/form with shading. This hobby has been a great catharsis. That said, I need to keep pushing myself to not use wash as a crutch, get brave with NMM and basing, and move into airbrushing (currently only using brushes).
  3. These are my first four (about 7 months ago) to support my first D&D campaign. Reaper Satheras (warlock) with a Ghast (barlgura demon) and Zombies (undead). The Ghast was technically my first model that I did in which I tried base coat, wash, and dry brushing on. Speed painted the Zombies next and then took some time on the Satheras. I’ve painted and posted a bit since, but lost pace once the warmer weather arrived. I have a couple models currently in a semi-finished state that I need to wrap up.
  4. The fungi was one of my favorite details too. In retrospect I should have replicated it with green stuff further up the model. Painting aside, I need to broaden into basing materials and get a light box for better pictures.
  5. The DM of my D&D group asked me to paint a mini for our campaign (pre-social-distancing). This guy is a Treant from the WizKids line of figures and I had a lot of fun telling his story with paint. I tried to capture this guys transition from a good/living Treant to one that is corrupted and decaying. So there are colors indicating life intermingled with the subtle presence of a dark purple glaze in the shadows. Would love your feedback on this one, he was a detailed paint.
  6. Like others, I love the skin and overall contrast in this model. The taught and worn areas are pink and are great contrast to the blue skin tone. And then your use of metallic finishes next to other textures and effects brings this to life. Great work.
  7. I thought these were a really fun set to paint, too (mine below), and I like your interpretation on them.

    I love that you made the skin cool and necrotic while keeping the shading warm, it’s great contrast.
  9. Slowly working in some new details and techniques to my paint effort... this time playing with multiple metallic paints for weathering effect. And not visible in this pic, but played with glazing on the contents of the cauldron to make it look soupy. This one was harder to call done and walk away from than I anticipated but need to be satisfied with the new things I tried with this one. Let me know your feedback on where I could improve.
  10. I have these guys primed up and have been about to paint them for weeks. Great job.
  11. I really like your take on this. I have it on deck in my workspace to do soon and really appreciate how you differentiated the oxidation effect on the different metallic finishes. Are you using it as a proxy for a Warhammer set?
  12. Thanks. All credit goes to the folks at Frontier Wargaming who made the case they came in... just got it for Christmas to help keep my equipment and paints together (picture attached). Makes for a great mobile hobby space.
  13. 03843 Aurelio Endrino, Bonehenge Warlock 03847 Kelainen Darkmantle, Evil Wizard This was our second crack at a paint project where my boys lay a base coat with a color scheme and I touch them up and detail them. My oldest did the wizard and gave me a good challenge of doing an all white cloak for the first time. My younger son kept looking over my shoulder and asking me to adjust colors on the warlock (though I am pretty happy with how the patchwork cloak turned out). I’m having a lot of fun with these tag team paints! As always, C&C welcome.
  14. Thanks for sharing @rubegon and @Warlady! To the points you’ve made, my goal is to make it fun and help when/where they want me to without overstepping. I’m still pretty new to the hobby myself but am interested in going to a convention or two to further experience the community. Thanks again.
  15. This is really what I would love, if anyone else has done this with kids. Thanks!
