    Basically painting now, wishy washy fades seem to come and go for me. Started painting minis back in the late 70's for game but that was just splashing paint any old way for some effect. well after 25 years plus layoff, got talked into trying it so I'm hooked again

    Pinning HeroForge Brass

    since it's brass can't u just use a file to enlarge the hole where I can than get alittle more room to maneuver a xacto knife and wiggle it out?
  2. The last of my recent work. This month I felt like tackling a few drow for practice, I have a set of raging hero's dark elves been dying to do but first want to get really comfortable painting drow so ran across him in my old figures and my mind instantly whispered DROW.

    02452 Amber Dracomancer

    I thought I post some of my recent work. I'm in the process/side project of painting my first dragon and even thou this is a baby dragon thought it might be good practice to how to go about a larger version.

    14020 Lola, Overlord's Hero

    Thought I'd post my recent work, always wanted to paint her and envisioned her in red leather, with pale violet clothes. I still don't know how my red leather turned into brown when I called her done, lol.

    Color Pallette for Drow (White) Hair

    Actually @golldan it's on her darksword dvd and she uses ashen brown (09180) which is a slightly lighter volcano brown (09268), didn't think reaper still made that triad 09178-09180 so replaced with the volcano brown for @painting dog. I still have the old triad (cinder brown-volcano brown-ashen brown) and use that recipe all the time, it's quite nice. I even recently used it on reaper's diabolist mini which I just finished, I'll post to give you a look.

    Best 15 - 20 Reaper Paints to Get

    All the clear brights are a must have ! (for skin) rosy skin, maiden flesh, and bones ebony flesh. (for an orange) bones sunrise orange. (for a warm yellow) bones lantern yellow. (for a neutral gray) rainy grey, great for making ur colors more pastel. pure black and pure white. (for browns) brown liner, a must have for bones minis, russet brown, and chestnut gold. (for purple) runic purple and deep twilight. (green and blue) bones brilliant green and brilliant blue, and lastly (for a darker red) bones cinnamon red. that's my list of 20 or 21.

    Paint Triads vs. Individual Paints

    If just starting out I'd go with single's, mainly get all the colors on a color wheel and a few browns, black and white. One advantage is you then get to learn the colors and how to mix and it'll help you out in the long run. That being said being I am a paint hoarder, I do have all the triads but find I rarely use them together.

    Color Pallette for Drow (White) Hair

    I luv using Jessica rich's receipe for white hair, volcano brown mixed with maggot white adding more maggot white into the mix for highlights, to pure white.

    DSM7443 Eleven warlock

    Another of last months work, I wanted to try two things with this mini, first practice on some osl, but mainly wanted to see how far I could push the shadows on a white cloak, hoping for almost a pure black. But I failed miserably, when I had up to reapers 09137 Blackened Brown It just didn't feel/look right to me so this was the darkest I could get. I also did something weird for me as well painting the hair a weird color for kicks.

    02029 Princess Elena

    So to continue the trend of painting some of my old mini's I chose to do princess Elena this month from what Reaper calls their classic female wizards as I had did Kimberlee last month.

    02391 Kimberlee the Fair

    Another of last months work, I was searching thru my bin of unpainted mini's when I happen upon what reaper calls their Classic female wizards. I was always timid about doing them because their faces seem so small to me at the time I had gotten her. But decided to paint brave now-a-days so... Oh and sorry for the loose static grass bits, I always forget to wipe off or airbrush away before I take pics, lol.

    14366 Dehanis Twinleaf, elf Druid

    Thought I post a few of last months work finally. I got tired of doing staffs and spears black or brown so figured I'd try something a little different.
