First time posting here, but not technically my first mini, I think i threw some paint on half a dozen space marines about 12 years ago, not touched a brush since then. Decided to get back into the hobby with the most recent bones kickstarter, as we play alot of D&D, and thought I'd best have a practice before then. So here is my paladin of St Cuthbert for a friends D&D shackled city campaign, and given the volcanic, dungeon-crawly setting, I wanted to try and go for a darker look for the mini, rather than traditional blingy shining look. I didn't feel confident with my skill trying to paint the glow from the sword on the armor, I was afraid I'd mess it up and ruin the whole mini, so I didn't attempt it. Any tips and advice are more than welcome, I want to try and improve as best I can before this time next year when the bones cometh.
Here is the Black Guard I set from GameZone miniatures (SKU 0451). There was an awful lot of armor plates to paint on these, so I had to force myself to finish them up, but now that they are done I am happy with how they turned out. The metals are shaded metallics, with silver as the highest highlights.
