Hi everyone, I've been lurking over recent weeks on these forums, after hearing about the Bones 3 kickstarter reignited my interest in painting miniatures. I did a bit of miniature painting about 15-20 years ago, largely for D&D games (painting Ral Partha figures), and still have a pile of leftover unpainted figures. So after I came across the Reaper Learn To Paint Kit, I decided to dive back in and have a go. I've now finished the three LTPK figures, and done a few of my old Ral Partha items. Learning to paint is sooooooo much better these days, having access to all of the discussions in these forums, and other tutorials online. I've already been able to try several new techniques that I had no way of finding out about all those years ago - even things like wet palettes, and how to take a half-decent photograph. I did the three LTPK figures first - pretty much solely following the painting guidelines in the set. I was very pleasantly surprised at how these turned out - especially the orc's skin and leather armour. This is a bariaur from the Ral Partha Planescape boxed set. Very pleased with his fur and horns. Eyes need lots more practice. No idea where this ranger figure originally comes from - a friend ask me to paint it for his character in our D&D game (a game that ended in 1999... so I'm only running a little bit late). Got to have a go at some basic layering on his cloak, but the eyes still a problem. This ghost came from the Ral Partha Ravenloft Castles Forlorn boxed set - just a chance to practice some gradual colour changes - need to try using some (washes? glazes?) to smooth the transitions, presumably. Anyway, thanks to everyone who regularly posts on these forums - I've been finding it all amazingly useful to get back into the hobby, get the right gear, and learn some new techniques. And in so many cases, a really good inspiration on where I can improve. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks, Stu
