  1. Well I just finished her and thought I would share how she ended up turning out. I really like how she came out I spent quite abit of time on the red skirt and I am really pleased how that worked. I welcome questions comment and crtiqus. You can't really see her eyes in the pics but I think that they turned out well my best eyes yet.

  2. Sometimes I do but you know what I enjoy it and paint to enjoy, besides I can think of many uses for zombie orcs. Look at your mistakes and accidents another way try to make something of it that makes them unique that is part of the fun of the hobbie for me. Like when I had all but finished my current project and spotted a huge blob of dried glue on her finished hair. Well the whole process of glueing this mini was kind of hellish oh well.

  3. When I opend her up her broom handle was crooked, so I straightened it. Recently I spoted a thin spot, crack on her broom handle right where her hand was so after some debate I added som green stuff to the spot hopeing to fix it. I have smoothed the green stuff out as best i can but it is rather visible the plan at this moment is to paint it like a small leather wrap on the broom handle.

  4. The bauble on her hair is accually superglue that got umm misplaced. The shoulder that I glued on looks funky as well. So my question is what do you do when you accidlently slop super glue where you dont want it to be. I do not at this moment have my needle file set due to it being lost.

  5. Alright I technically prime before painting my miniatures I paint them white. Unfortunately I realy don't prime in that I just use reaper white paint. I wonder since I really just use the reaper white paint is that even really priming. Also how necessary is priming the minis I haven't really had any problems with it except for the places where I hold the mini. (I bought something to stick the minis on with Tacky.) Also if I handle the mini a lot some of the paint rubs off I'm going to try sealing them. So the question is how vital is priming and what they is the best way to do it I have heard the spray paint method and the paint on one the is also apparently an acrylic gouch that is supposed to do the same thing.

  6. How many of you listen to music while you are paintng and how it affects your work? I listen to music while painting quite often, I have noticed that I become somewhat more irate while enjoying the hobby when I am not listening to music.

  7. I have

    03361: Shaeress Nashanneth, Dark Elf Queen and I am having alot of trouble attaching the arm. I am currently attempting to useing G-S hypo cement it dosent seem to want to harden. I am looking for advice so i dont have this problem in the future and so i dont have to worry about bumping it and having the glued part break off.

     

  8. Though I am somewhat wary of posting in this thread agian after so long I would like to show an update on my progress and get some opinions.

     

    This is really my first attempt at wet blending of any sort and would like to know how i did with it, i used carnival purple with red ink and water with a touch of blue (oops) to create the shade for the red portion of the dress. I have taken the first step with the boots and the rest of the dress and am likely to use alot of gold on the detials and head-dress as I am painting her for an exalted game that I am in at the moment.
