Dwarf Lord

Mini Killer

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have been lurking around here for years off and on. Like many of you, I started painting miniatures in the early 80’s in connection with D&D then quit when I joined the navy in 89. I picked up the brush again about 8 years ago and have been painting off and on. I am trying this board to share my work after some bad experiences on cool min or not. There is beautiful work on the site but it is not to supportive of beginners and just ok painters, my opinion. You all seem to be supportive and encouraging. So, here is probably my best work to date. It was the last thing I painted 8 months ago and now picking up the brush again after retiring from the navy and making the move. I hope you all enjoy. Always looking for comments and suggestions.


I really hope the pics uploaded?

Howdy, Mini Killer! :lol:


Yeah, CMON can be brutal and elitist. I used to lurk there, but got burned out on all the favoritism. It's as bad as high school was! These boards are much friendlier. Everyone is so supportive and willing to help. I have gotten some of my best ideas from the folks 'round here. You made the right call.


I really like your Dwarf dude! That purple is awesome. Lich purple? And good job on the face and the red gem. He's got alot of character.


It kind seems like some of the sculpted details on his armor are not showing up very well. I can't tell if it's an artifact of the photography or not... Have you tried using a dark wash to pop the details on your metallics? I suggest thinning your paints a little more. Multiple light layers preserve detail better than one or two thicker ones.


Welcome to the family,

Thanks for the replies. It will be nice to share my work with other people besides the wife.


Midnight Lurker- I did use Lich purple on the axes, I have been working on thinning my paints but still have a hard time with the metallics. Still have not quite mastered the dark washes yet always afraid of messing something up. Oh, well it is just paint.


Citrine- The figure is from Games workshop, Dwarf Lord with Great Weapon part # 99066205117. I think it is one of their best dwarf pieces they have made recently.
