My first attempt at painting a mini. The main colour here is Liquitex gray no. 5, with a couple of drops of AP 'Barbarian Flesh' to add some tone to it. The shorts/pants/whatever is AP 'Army Green'. The eyes are AP 'Lava Red', and the teeth are unpainted. The base... Was more gray no. 5, but this time mixed with a dark brown. No washes, highlights, shines or anti-shine was used. (Variations in the gray is all from thickness of the gray and how it blended with the BF colour) The body was painted using the Wargamer: Regiment brush, then the cloth and eyes were done using the Wargamer: Insane Detail brush. And finally, I fixed the worst of the errors with the Insane Detail brush. All in all, I'm satisfied with the look. (In a year or three I expect I'll be embarassed with this mini) It seems the Liquitex doesn't adhere too well to the plastic formula in the Bones minis, so if I use more of that I will use a primer first. (I have a 60ml of Vallejo Gray Primer I can use, but will accept suggestions if there are better suited ones. No spray primers, though. I have a -3 in Spray-painting skill, and throwing saves with a D4)
