I finally got around to painting up the L2PK1 that I've had for years...old enough that it came with the older Pro Paint in the pots! Anyway, here they are, forgive the quality from my cell phone camera. All in all I'm pleased with them, my first mini's painted in over 20 years.
Okay, this is my first attempt at painting a metal mini. I don't think it looks quite as nice as my space marines, but I also experimented a lot more. The eyes were done as one of the earlier parts of the job, and it shows. Eventually, I just got frustrated with trying to get the eyes to look somewhat eye-shaped, and said "good enough." At some point, I may return and actually paint something on the shield. For now, simple blue will have to do. You can see where the wash meant for the metal rim intruded on the blue. I tried going with some vertical striping on the shield to suggest woodgrain, but the brush wouldn't cooperate with me. You can see where I tried a bit of highlighting on the edge of the sword and on the helmet here. It... didn't go as well as I'd hoped.
