Welcome. This is an excellent first mini. You seem to have an eye for good color schemes and your detail work is quite crisp.


If you're seeking advice, my biggest suggestion would be to delve into highlighting a bit. It can be intimidating and make parts of the model seem "too light" at first, but it's a great way to bring things to life and give your work more of a chance to shine 


I look forward to seeing more from you.

Welcome to the Forum!

Great job, you know how to make an entree!


Highlights /shadows are usually the things to improve on, most of us still struggle with that every now and then.

I would like to see a little more effort on the base.

A little sand or a grass tuft can lift it up to the next level, or a small thing like a discarded helmet etc.

it will make the mini stand out even more.


All in all, you have talent, your first mini is way better than mine ever was.

I recommend watching some youtube vids on the subject of painting fantasy miniatures and browsing the Forum here, there are many useful tips and hints there.


Most important thing of all in this hobby: HAVE FUN!


I look forward to see more from your work!
