    First ever miniature: Mr. Bones

    Never painted a miniature before, or even really worked with paints much, so I did all the research and then used Mr.Bones here for a practice run. How did I do? I sort of had to improvise with the paints I had since I bought all this for a different project (I'll make a separate thread). Had to do a couple coats of sepia wash for the brown sack and mixed the black and white to get the gray under-robe. Mixed a little black into the dwarven gold to get the lantern and ropes. Also used a little liquid gold on the lantern so when it reflects light it looks kind of like it lights up. Paints used...

    New to Painting Miniatures

    Here my first two miniatures that I have painted please let me know what you all think.(update the models are 77279: Narthrax and 89032 Anti Paladin) I modified Narthrax with fire out of the mouth.And I modified Anti Paladin by Thinning the cape out.
  3. EDIT: I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT PUTTING THE PIX IN SPOILER TAGS...NOT SURE HOW TO. Good evening everyone! These are the first miniatures I have ever painted. I picked up the Bones Learn to Paint Kit a month ago or so and painted two of the 3 minis that came with it (the skeleton came broken) and then decided to pick up 3 more off of ebay and have painted 5 total to date. I was looking for a hobby and I stumbled across this site and read everything about minis and what not and decided to give it a try. I added the model #'s in the topic for the ones I remembered. The first mini I started with was the Armored Knight, followed by the Orc, then the Large Earth Elemental, Hell Hound and then finally the Pathfinder Dragon. Hoping to get some feedback on any/all of them as it would be much appreciated. Below are some pics, both with flash off and flash on for comparison. The only paints I used where the ones that came with the painting kit...some I mixed together or thinned out etc... I don't have a table to paint on (I'm not painting on my polished coffee table! nor do I have a fancy white background (or rather just some white paper =P) so I used a white shirt for the backdrop. Some things I noticed after I took the pics and along the way, these of which I still need to do, are: Paint the teeth on the Orc, paint the claws and wing bones of the dragon, fix the bone colored mark on the Hell Hound's left rear leg, eyes on the armored knight. Anyways, hope their good!

    Eando kline: 60041

    This is my very first mini! Had some problems with the eyes, as you can see. (see what I did there), I ended up skipping pupils in the end (Lord knows I tried to get them in there.... 9 times... Lol). And in hindsight, there is a little problem with the hair on his forehead, and I didn't remove any flashing, that has now become much obvious when the mini is painted up.... Otherwise I am pretty happy with my very first paint job! And I thoroughly enjoyed the process. 399 more to go. Please don't hold back with any comments or criticism. That's the way we learn(and by "we", I mean "me"). Thanks for looking. -scott

    First stab at sculpting! WIP

    Hey all! I'm so happy to have found this great forum and community! I was introduced to the world of miniatures almost 10 years ago and used to love painting up hoards of monsters and soldiers, but eventually fell out of love with it. Recently I have been getting back in to tabletop gaming, and I decided to take a different approach to minis, sculpting my own instead of painting! So here is my first creation, a Gibbering Mouther! I figured this amorphous creature was a good place to start so I could get a feel for sculpting in this scale and material. It is still a work in progress, and I know that I need to add more mouths in order for it to live up to its name! I am sculpting with an epoxy from smooth-on, and am really loving it! The pictures aren't the greatest, I know. And theres a bunch of paint specks that got in the putty from the surface I was working on, but please, comment and critique! How would you paint it when it's done? what would you add/change? do you know any resources or sculptors I should check out? Thanks in advance! - Jonathan

    First miniature ever!

    Hey everyone! This is my first try ever at painting a miniature, and also my very first post. I can't believe the talent some of you guys have, and I'll practice hard to hone my skills and share some more miniatures. This is turning out to be a lot of fun, and I can't wait to paint again! Please give me your opinion, and if you have tips on how to improve, don't be shy. I used basic craft acrylics plus matte and gloss sealers, no airbrush (can't afford it, meh).

    My First - Anhurian from LTPK1

    In anticipation of my Kickstarter Bones showing up soon (I hope!), I picked up Learn to Paint Kit 1, as well as a few extra of the already-existing bones, a couple more colors of paint, and a couple extra brushes. Here's my first completed mini ever - the Anhurian Man-At-Arms from LTPK1: I decided to go with red instead of blue on the cloth, and I think that turned out well. My only disappointment with that color choice is that the leather straps on his legs didn't turn out with enough contrast to be very visible. I had some fun with a "Shining Amethyst" color on the pommel of his sword and the studs on his armor, helm, and shield to add a little bling to him. You can't see them very well in this photo (all I have is a camera phone right now), but in good light the shiny purple is definitely noticeable. My one major regret and frustration is that darn shield. Is there some trick to getting even layers of paint on a large, flat surface like that? I always seemed to get globs of paint or uneven layers on it. Here's the Bones Gnoll I'm planning to do next (once I finish that darn rat from LTPK1). Any coloring suggestions or warnings about tricky parts to paint? I was essentially planning to use the same armor+fur techniques from LTPK1 on this guy.
