Nicely done, I love the iguana's shading and expression. And the ale (grog?) bottle is amazing amazingly painted. I love how it's transparent but still looks dirty or dusty. =P

Wow, that bottle is fantastic. Mind sharing your technique?

 

it was quite by accident. if I remember correctly, I started with Khaki Highlight for the base. then laid down brown liner as the liquid. I then glazed over it with more khaki and finally I hit it with armypainter strong tone ink to smooth it all out

Tequila? Is that like beer?

 

Ehhh....is like beer...

 

Was watching the 3 Amigos last night while painting. Now I want to paint this dude while watching it.

 

One thing for seriousness; is it possible to set your camera's white balance? Pics look fine but yellow-shifted. Crack open your manual!

NP, Doug is obviously the local camera guru. I just wanted to mention it because so many people are so far away from taking good photos, where you're just a white balance away :)

 

And in the other thread they're talking about fixing it in post, but if your camera can set the white balance to your normal photo setup, it will save you from that step in post x every mini you paint x every angle you snap.

      Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.

      Bombshell just came out with a resin version of their dieselpunk pinup/supersoldier, Liberty. She's a great dynamic sculpt, zaftig and muscular with it. Now, we all know this is evoking some 'what if Haley Attewell became Captain America' vibes, but I've already painted up our red-white-and-blue hero before, as well as an Agent Carter type and even a Captain Canada. So, I might as well continue down the North American continent. Presenting: Capitan Mexica! 

       Click for the rest of the turnaround: 
      Alas, the resin gun she came with was fragile and I had to kitbash on a sturdier one. Her shield is taken from an Aztec warrior from this series.
      Not so much Nazi-punching to do, but she has plenty of threats to contend with that would imperil the good folk of Mexico:



      ...some stranger than others!


      And some downright bizarre: 


      Here she is with her northern counterparts:

      I'd used leather brown with an umber wash as a primer  on  this Irish bartender from the western/savage worlds part of the Chronoscope range. I then thought that the skin tone looked quite good and tried to highlight it up to a black/African American person' s skin. I used a 5050 mix of African Shadow from Scale 75 and Troll Claws from Army Painter. 
       
      I have no idea what rules I will use (and when...) but am putting together a bit of a crew of the western reaper minis with this chap providing medicinal and room clearance support.

      Rescued this pair from the Box of Goodwill over the summer, and tried for a quick tabletop job during my Thanksgiving paint binge. Didn't quite get them finished in November, but they are done now.  Spent way too much time on them because I didn't start with a color scheme in mind and ended up having to repaint a couple areas.

      Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro:



      which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?" 
      Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady, 


      and started slapping green stuff on.
       
       
      Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to the finished product.
       

      Both she and the lariat-wielding saguaro vaquero will have blunt, stubby feet and arms with little muscle or joint definition, both because that's how saguaros do and because I am...not a professional sculptor by a long chalk. 

      C&C welcome; this is the rough draft of the first draft of each of them and I'll be doing a lot of trimming and repositioning, no doubt.
