wtwest Posted March 5, 2005 Share Posted March 5, 2005 Well I haven't painted a miniature since November. I decided to go with something simple. I had painted a Terminator and a Predator type figure last year, so I thought an Alien was the most likely canidate. It took me awhile to find the right mini. Luckily I found what I wanted. I stated with a coat of black for the primer. Next I highlighted the base with bleached bone. I kept it simple, trying to match the bases on the other minis. After finishing the simple base, I gave the entire figure a wash of purple ink, followed by blue and green ink in various spots. I next highlighted with Nausating Blue, followed by Hideous Blue with slight highlight of Enchanted blue with a splash of white added. Of course, I painted the teeth with silver. I sealed the mini in a couple of sprays of Dullcoat. When dry, I painted several sections with gloss to give it that wet look. Not overly impressive, but it was nice getting back into painting after a four month hiatus. Now I need to get a mini ready for the Spring Mini Exchange. Back to my lurking...... Thanks for taking a peek. WTWest 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
