  1. I am prouder of the "maid of hearts" (right). I have to work her into a campaign, as PC or NPC. till cant get the eyes right.
  2. So when I went in on the Kickstarter, I never intended to actually paint any of them -- I figured I'd just use them as basic unpainted minis, because hey, for that price, why not. But when I had the pile of plastic sitting in front of me, and saw how much gorgeous detail there was on them, I discovered that I wanted to do something with them. So I bought the Learn to Paint Kit 1, did both the minis in that (which you can see in the WIP thread, if you're curious for whatever reason), and then started in on the Bones. My very first "freehand" mini was a space Marine in Packer colors. I have
  3. So in preparation for the arrival of the ks bones I recently ordered some craft acrylics, specifically these . Now I have read on some other sites about people complaining that craft acrylics have a smaller "pigment/medium ratio" than model paints because you have to dilute the craft paints more. So first question, in your own experience how true is this statement? And second question, if the above is held to be true, could this not be remedied by just using more brush strokes when painting? Also since im on the topic of using different types of paints I may as well ask this: Is it p
  4. This is almost my first mini in 20 years. I painted one batch in a burst of renewed enthusiasm last month, then decided I wished to hunker down and really try to improve (yeah, they weren't that great). This mini was one of the most notable failures last month, so I stripped off its paint and am trying again. I don't know much about painting minis beyond what I knew twenty years ago, using artists' acrylics mixed myself, with some washes. But I am an artist, so I know a lot of the technicalities of paint and painting on the macro scale. Maybe I can help or get help translating it to
  5. I just came back to painting minis after a hiatus of 20 years, and discovered I am no better now than I was back in 1990. I did get an art degree in the meantime and become a pro artist/illustrator, so it was kind of an embarrassing realization. I am way out of the loop of current miniatures culture. Can anyone suggest where to start? At the moment I don't feel my painting skills are worthy of the minis. These are, left to right, probably the best one of the batch I just painted, the worst one (ouch), and the dark elf mini I painted as a Githyanki for my player character.
  6. Ok, so I was looking for flow improver today, and Hobby Lobby and Joanne's did not have it. I want to make a wash similar to Les's wash recipes... I have the ink, distilled water, and matte medium, but no flow improver... I've read Future works as a flow improver, also dish soap works... So, anyone have a suggested recipe with the inks, and matte medium?
