Just thought I would post another mini i finished, just in time before school starts back up. I'm an educational assistant who will have four special needs kindergarteners to look after this year, I'm not sure I will have the energy to paint anything in the evenings for a while. Plus I have a second job overnights Fridays and Saturdays so... Anyways on to the mini. I think I will redo the base. It was gray stone (yes gray, that's how we spell it in Canada) and I put Army Painter Strong Tone on it knowing it was probably going to look wrong having a brown wash over gray stone and I was right, so I'll be repainting that. I was going to try for more contrast and layering especially on his bones but instead anything I was doing was wrecking him so I decided that must mean he's finished. I would also have gone one more layer on his tunic but was afraid it would turn out like the bones. Other than that he's easily tabletop quality I think, but I'm still a beginner so maybe I'm wrong.
Here's a little fellow I painted as a warm-up: Well, what was supposed to be a warm-up ended up taking three days. First, the sand for the basing material ended up getting messed up during application, meaning I had rinse it twice and start again. The I noticed the paint was getting rubbed off the high areas (it's not quite waterproof), so I had to repaint certain areas. Finally the matte varnish I put on frosted a bit, so even after reapplying gloss and matte varnish again, it looks dusty. At that point I called it quits and skipped the grass flocking. Still I like him, and he's good enough for tabletop. My son now wants me to let him play as a skeleton in an RPG session, with this as the figure.
