Great job Dave.

 

Love the face on this one!

 

Critique would be that your paint is a bit too thick in places it seems, the shield is where it's most noticeable.

I've noticed that myself. It tends to happen to me a lot on open, flat spaces.

Is it the lighter pigment colors or all colors? Not sure how much you thin your paints or with what, but I've noticed that going with many thin layers keeps it from happening on me.

I've mostly noticed it when I'm working with lighter colors. I don't see it on the Galleon's leg plates (blues), or my myrmidons (dark metallics) for example, but on this one's shield (whites) and my Grey Maiden's shield (silvers) I can definitely see it.

I thin with distilled water, and occasionally a small drop of matte medium. But mostly distilled water, and I use the old "thin as milk" comparison. (Roughly 1:2 MSP:Water; a little more water for GW and P3 paints). The one that got all blotchy here was a mix of GW Fortress Grey, MSP Leather White and water, no medium.

Yes! Now begins the epic battle of paladin vs anti paladin. Depending on your painting style, you could bring the blue highlights out more.

She hasn't been matte coated yet, the matte coating brings out the colors more. I still have to fix her shield, so I might go a little higher on the blues as well.

The red hair is excellent and so is her face. I also like the choice of white for the armour.

 

I've tried using matte medium and for some reason it makes my colours very chalky. Either I'm not thinning it enough or I got a bad bottle.

Some people swear by it. I've just started using it to thin my paints. (I've always used it in my washes and glazes, though.)

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
       
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hard to go wrong with sexy female demons, but this one was a devil in more than one sense of the word from start to finish.  Despite being cast in metal she is pretty fragile. The trident broke off and for years she sat in my box of unpainted figs, until one day I found the little pointy bit.  Her tail, likewise, kept bending and i was sure I'd lose that too. 
       
      Did her skin with the Bright Skin triad, because that's been waiting patiently for years as well.  Her face is a mess, but overall she came out ok.

      Picked up a few of these a year or two ago and am slowly getting them painted.  They have a different feel from Reaper's usual models.
