Report My First fully painted mini in the last year. in Show Off: Painting Posted September 26, 2012 Wow man, I can't believe I did not comment on this back then. I know I voted for it on CMON, but I missed it here for some reason. I know what you are talking about with the contrast, but many times it is hard to train your mind to look at the figures that way. Since I was a Historical Model builder prior to starting to paint miniatures, I have a tendency of trying to make things as realistic as possible and the higher contrast is hard for my mind to absorb. I agree though that this works real well on this figure and it is up there on the list of your best miniatures yet ( I really like the one you gave me in our exchange just as well). I am glad you are going to start painting again. Have you thought about the Halloween contest to get your self back in it?
