  1. That is a fantastic face, especially for that scale. I do like the palette you've been using. It feels very grounded.
  2. I have very little experience here, except to say I've got a bottle of Army Painter's Mithril Silver/Chain Mail Silver (it's marketed in two different lines) and I much prefer it to my Reaper Filigree Silver. It has good coverage and is very smooth - no metallic "graininess" to speak of, just shine. No experience with the rest of their products, but I've read good things about their latest metallics line.
  3. I rather like the crowned king. The saffron yellow goes surprisingly well with the gilt armor. I don't know what other color would've liked right for the tongue, but pink suits well enough.
  4. Purple was a great choice for the cloak. Seems like a stone tile mausoleum would be a good base.
  5. Wanted some sci fi minis and I saw this box of Star Wars Legion Rebel Troopers on sale, so I bought it. They've sat in the box since May, as I was a little intimidated at assembling and army painting. Now I feel a bit more confident, so I'm going for it. Started with basing first. I debated on what theme go to with, but I opted for a desert with warm, Kalahari-like tones. Mixed up a few different sand sizes, added some stones here and there. I noticed the commander has his gun pointed down and it was on the same level as his feet. Rather than drag it through the sand, I made a rock for him to stand on. It's actually made of a hickory nut shell I found in the back yard, sanded slightly for a smooth bottom. I debated whether I should glue the minis before basing or after. I decided for after, so I pressed them into the still-wet PVA and sand to make little footholds. Hopefully I won't regret it. šŸ˜„ Primed white, then put down some thinned red before a layer of Marigold Yellow. Drybrushed with various densities of Woodland Brown and Bleached Linen. The rocks got a shot of Dark Highlights before drybrushing. The pic isn't great, but I like the way the texture and color turned out. Again, potato-quality pic. But you get the idea. Superglued the minis to the bases. Now I'm making decisions about base colors. My palette is fairly limited - I have the starter set from the Layer Up kit, and a starter set of Army Painter D&D paints, as well as a couple Folk Art blues. I'm trying out different color combinations to find what I like. I'm being inspired by the Rebel Pathfinders from Rogue One: So a lot of khakis and dark blues. Being Rebels, I'll give them a bit of variation in exact color coordination - maybe this one has khaki pants, and that one has brown or navy. I also want to add at least one non-Human species besides the Duros. I'm thinking either a green-skinned Mirialan, or fuchsia-toned Zeltron.
  6. Love those patterns and colors. Great job.
  7. For your second mini, this is great! I think the color tone is good - a balance of realistic and cartoonish. Perfect for the sculpt. Keep painting! Can't wait to see more!
  8. I'm liking the vibrancy on the fern and in her hair. Nicely done.
  9. Great color choices. That blue is stunning.
