Nice paint work CW, skin tones and NMM are clean and crisp.


Must say I've never liked this sculpt, still don't, despite your fine work on it... :down:


Paint on Cash man!




I agree about the sculpt, its always left me... "meh"... the paint job on the otherhand... it's fantastic!

I think the sculpt is pretty cool. As Jabber said, very Red Sonja-like and I used to read a lot of pulp as a youth (still do!). But this cast was pretty rough. There are a couple bubble holes that are pretty deep and some really rough patches. If I had green stuff skill I probably could've fixed them, but I tried to minimize them with paint and did pretty well.


The skin, though. I disagree with SK on this one. It got a little thick and really chalky. I should've gone back in and glazed it smoother. My excuse that it's 'just a L2PK' has just run dry :p I do like the bronzed skin triad for this kind of model, though.

Smoke + mirrors. Drybrush white onto the top part (over the base coat). Then a thinned line of darkest shadow just under that and then just a few thin mixes moving from that shadow back up to base coat at the bottom (I think maybe 3). Then a quick base coat+white to pick up some reflected light along the bottom.


Edit: when I say drybrush...I don't really use drybrushing anymore, it's more of a wetbrush. Wick most of the paint off and use the edge in a similar theory to catch the raised areas. Much easier on brushes and you don't get dried pigment mess all over.

      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.
