I have wanted to get into painting for a long time and have watched days worth of videos on it. i think it shows in how my first minis came out.
the first was a reaper kobold and he looks a bit sloppy. (on the card for the hobby holder i got because i could not find anything else to put him on for the pic lol)
next was a blue kobold and a baby dragon, I was still working on how washes work with the blue kobold but the dragon came out better.
now the one i did today
I am pretty proud of him, for being my forth mini i think he looks really good. he is colored like a ring neck snake.

This was AMAZING!! I had no idea such a warm and fun con existed. I was surprised by how both energizing and relaxing it was.
The only minor issue I had/have is a bit of clarity needed in the MSP judging rubric. I get how it was done (teacher by trade) but I would like to see what criteria was used to define each level breakdown. For instance a bronze exhibited more or less or “x” trait, a silver this, and a gold that. I understand it is subjective (again teacher - high school English to boot) but I think it would help to have something a bit more concrete and in writing going forward to know what to strive for; or at least know where the ballpark is. Otherwise, I can’t speak highly enough about the whole experience. The opportunity to join in and game was great. The painting hijinks was the most fun. I had a hard time pulling myself away to go do other things. Judge feedback was helpful and I even got a shiny bronze medal- which I proudly display next to my minis.
I am going to blame the registration desk for my newest addiction- ribbon hunting. Just remember the first ones free! ;p
Hi all, im going to my first UKGE and noticed Reaper being there, are the prices going to be as they are on the site (set to UK) or is there going to be some 'uppage' due to UK having hundreds of taxes? lol
I know its kind of late to be asking stuff like this but wondered if anyone know.
Thanks in advance everyone and anyone!
Never painted a miniature before, or even really worked with paints much, so I did all the research and then used Mr.Bones here for a practice run. How did I do?
I sort of had to improvise with the paints I had since I bought all this for a different project (I'll make a separate thread). Had to do a couple coats of sepia wash for the brown sack and mixed the black and white to get the gray under-robe. Mixed a little black into the dwarven gold to get the lantern and ropes. Also used a little liquid gold on the lantern so when it reflects light it looks kind of like it lights up.
