This kit is definitely my favorite. It took a lot to digest the instructions and I still have a loooong way to go. But it's a solid foundation in NMM and the recipe sheet will be on my desk for many temporal units.


Another note to add before I collapse into sleep in preparation for the work week. Note on my last few Show-Offs I've increased the image size. I like to push myself into things like that, where every flaw is MAGNIFIED. I urge all new painters to not only get into the habit of taking WIP pictures, which can help you see mistakes, missed spots, natural shadows, etc; but to really embrace putting the finished product out there. And put in the effort to get good pictures!

My estimate is ten hours. To paint Tyden, not to tunnel to Oz. For me, that's speedy. For OC, that's like 10 minis

Not if I'm looking for any sort of quality. 4-8 hours on a good mini. First Snow was easily around the 8 hours mark, and she spent weeks just sitting on my bench base coated. Now for speed painted table top minis, yes I can do 10 of those in 10 hours...but often I get interrupted by some other thing "I have to do now". Lets face it the last 8 months is the most concentrated and productive burst of painting I've ever had. :)

      Learn to Paint Kit 3:
      When these kits were still being sold, it was suggested that this one be attempted last, even though it is #3. So now, having done the rest, it’s time to get down to business. 

      Look at all these paints! There’s even a bottle of the brush-on sealer that everyone keeps taking about. I’m excited! Fresh brushes too!

      The minis are Anduriel Brightflame, Elven Warrior and Tyden, Female Barbarian. A bit of flashing and some non-Euclidean geometry happening to their weapons, but that’s nothing unusual. I’m impressed by the details on these minis, Anduriel in particular has a lot going on.
      Now to take a look at the instructions, see what this Non-Metallic Metal is all about.
      Okay. I see why it was recommended to wait on this one. Did I say excited? I meant terrified.
      Ah well, no sense delaying the inevitable, time to prep and practice. I hope it’s interesting at least.

      Yes - It IS a Reaper Mini ! and Not anthropomorphic.
      With all the events happening in the last several weeks, I barely was able to get much painting
      in.  CC Numbers stolen, Bank being bought out and account changes, then finishing off the
      language course all threw me for a loop.  Concentration became quite difficult.
      I am happy to report that the mini has finally been painted to my satisfaction.
      Thanks to our local Barbarian for tracking down one of his relatives for me.  Tyden., Barbarian.
      She is really small, and I had a lot of fun painting her. 
      As always your comments and critiques are greatly  appreciated.
      Blonde hair, bronze "shield"... I almost painted her blue, not much to that female armor !
      Here are a couple of photos.
