I just got both of my packages in today, L2PK 3,4,5 and the brushes and such I ordered from another company, but I think I have a problem.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this guy is supposed to have a shield is he not?

I opened up all of the blisters thinking it may have been put in one of the other ones:

Nope, no shield no arm. I'll shoot an email off to Reaper just in case, see what they say.

Made a start on her armor:-

Love how the blue turned out, metallic colours are going to show up on a lot more of my mini's (I've got some Infinity figures on order that are going to get covered in the stuff!)

 

The gold trim isn't going so great though, I'm making quite the mess with it plus it doesn't seem to be showing up too well.

I'm on my third coat of Antique Gold at the moment and it's still pretty patchy.

Sad news, Rasia is getting scrubbed down again.

 

Didn't drop her into my wet palette this time, I'm giving up on this Kit.

After my not very successful attempt at the gold trim on her armor, I had a stab at her chain-weapon and despite redoing it several times, its just not working.

There's something funamental about demi-metallics that I'm just not grasping, and I don't think I ever will.

I thought she was looking good. Sometimes it helps to step away from a mini foe awhile (although be careful that awhile does not turn into a decade ;)). When I was painting my Ogre with purple tinted mettalics the following tutorial was recommended:

It is pretty advanced, but helps to think about TMM in a different manner. I highly recommend it.

It's not a easy mini by any means, Id just store the instructions for now and come back to it later, and just paint whatever you want for now. I try and do 5-10 mini's in between the kits.

Yeah, I was thinking about it a bit more today and I may tackle the kit again, but using a different mini.

 

I've got a mounted knight in (rather plain) full-plate armor in my Box of Unpainted mini's, I think he'll make a good test subject.

 

but I'll work on some other stuff first though.

      Just finished both learn to paint kits. First minis I've ever painted, pretty stoked how they turned out. I did take a couple experimental liberties just to see what happened. What do you guys think?

      This is the bones casting. I wish I had gotten the metal version once I started painting this as it seems some details were lost, especially in the face, and I found it more difficult to paint.

      All of the sculpts from the 25th anniversary miniatures were great. All of them amazingly painted. 
      But there was one of them which palette I didn't really liked... too much color :d
      So I painted my Dain Deepaxe with a sober palette.

      I've had these pics on my camera for a few days, and keep forgetting to upload them...  Keep getting distracted by other projects, but nothing wrong with that I say...  ^_^;;;;;  These photos were taken using my previous way of doing things, and I definitely prefer the "newer" way even if it means a bit more work up front, but there's less editing, and my kit lens is a LOT easier to work with for such up close pictures.  Kind of can't wait to get that Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro that's on my wishlist, but right now it's a debate between miniature supplies and camera gear, and the camera gear isn't currently on sale, plus we really could use a wider selection of paints in the house, so..... 
       
      Ingrid was definitely an....  Interesting challenge to paint, to say the least.  She has a great deal of smaller details to her, aaaaaand she's pint shot glass sized, which adds to things.  Interestingly enough, the biggest issue I kept running into was with her gloves, boots, and especially belt.  Cloak also gave some issues, even having me somewhat frustrated at first that my initial shadow layer looked a LOT like vertical red and black stripes, I kept it as it was, and added additional layers on, which seems to have partially corrected itself, but looking at the photos, at the right angles it... Still kind of shows that way.  Oh well, we learn as we go, right?
       
      This was also the first mini that I attempted something resembling eyes, and I did my best to have it look like she was looking right at the gem itself.  It took a few tries, but I managed to get some sort of hazel-brown eye going, although with just the one colour hazel eyes have (not the brown-green mix).
