  1. Hi everyone. With Kuro I also got some of Mantic Game's new minis and am trying to get 'em all banged out and ready for gaming. So here's where I'm at so far. Not sold on the scheme yet. Considering going dark grey and a drab green. Similar placement. Just changing out light grey for drab green. Comments and thoughts on what I should do are appreciated! :)
  2. Thanks everyone for the support! My Wife was originally not sure I should post hers. But I thought she could use some outside encouragement. I keep telling her she's talented....like really talented... @ Thrym: lol that would actually be pretty cool. Sorry for misleading ya. Couldn't think of what else to call the topic. :P @ Youwashock: That would be pretty cool. Would have to have a pretty lengthy deadline for entries though. So hard to find time for things like this these days.
  3. It's been a long time since I posted anything. I got my wife into painting miniatures not too long ago and we painted some new miniatures for my brother's (kuro cleanbrush's) Pathfinder campaign. This miniature was pretty groundbreaking for me. I am quite pleased with the true metallic. For my wife this was her second miniature ever. I was quite impressed. :) Special thanks to Kuro for the pictures! 60113. Gareth, my miniature. I bold and tough fighter. The tank for our group. Married to Vaylia 03006. Vaylia, my wife's miniature. A kind and gentle cleric. The healer fo
  4. Thanks for all of the compliments guys! Glad the color scheme turned out good. I didn't think I could go wrong with Ezio's color scheme, but you never know how it will translate to a model sometimes. @Jordan Peacock: not to toot my own horn, but I was pretty proud of the browns on this model. I used all kinds of colors. GW Scorched Brown, GW Khemri Brown, RMS Bloodstain Red, RMSClotted Red, and GW Bestial brown were all employed. I'm gonna be real sad when my pots of Scorched and Khemri brown are used up. Those two work super well with each other and produce a nice leather look.
  5. This is the second mini I've painted for an up and coming D&D campaign. This one was a small comission job that I did for a friend. Sarin the ninja elf will be a strange dual personality elf (he swallowed a fairy.... I didn't make the backstory up, the client did) who more or less fails at being a ninja but is a loyal companion to Harken and company. I originally thought about doing more of a traditional black ninja scheme. But the client and I decided that it would better fit the goofy character by doing a "white" ninja look. I then took one of the most competent assassins color sche
  6. No grey "works best" but having multiple shades of grey means you don't have to mix as much. Just add black to make a darker grey and white to make a lighter grey. To add life to the NMM you can add a tiny bit of blue to the shadows and light blue to the highest highlights. Here's a great NMM article I found while cruising the web. http://warhammer-emp...p?topic=10116.0 The mini is 03148 Jerach the Undead Hunter. A personal favorite of mine from one of my favorite sculpters: Matt Gubser http://www.reapermin.../sku-down/03148 If you need more help, don't be afraid to ask. The
  7. Shameless self plug here. This is what I did on my last model. I worked up from GW Dheneb stone through white. The best way to do white armor is to make it light enough for register as white, but with only you highest highlights actually being white. You can also use greys and blues to shade white instead of an off white like ivory.
  8. Wow, this is awesome. Amazing work on everything. A few quick questions: are you using an airbrush on the trukk? And is that nmm or true metallics?
  9. Thanks for pushing me to go the extra mile and for the compliments, MonkeySloth.
  10. Ok, per MonkeySloth's advice I went back and worked on the sword a bit. Had some time to kill anyway. I know this isn't a WIP thread so I just reposted the pics with the updated sword. They weren't quite as photo genic, but still good.
  11. It's always a great paint job when you learn something. The metal on the shield looks good and the sword is getting there. The big thing to try next time is to go darker, like really dark. Metals only work if you've got extreme contrasts. Also adding a smidge of blue, purple, or brown into your shading will help the highlights stand out more. Thanks for the advice MonkeySloth. Yeah the sword might could use a bit more shading, but it really depends on how the light hits it. If you look at the sword straight from the side the shading it pretty dark (GW Codex grey if you know h
  12. Now that you mention it, yeah the gold sorta does. Unintended cool effect :D . Might have been the result of using Reaper New Gold combined with Pearl White for the highlights.
  13. Thanks for the compliments everyone! The white was kinda funny for me. I bought the reaper ivory triad for the job. But that didn't work out...I was too yellow. So I used the out of production GW Dheneb Stone. I don't know what the appropriate reaper color is, but I think it would be in the bone triad over the ivory triad. The biggest thing is it has to be more "brown" and more "cold" than ivory. I think Dheneb stone has some cool colors in it, hence why it worked out. Basically the white is layers of Dheneb Stone mixed with GW Skull White. Dheneb Stone is how dark you start, a
