Recommended Posts

CatBat,

Lizardmage has a contest going right now themed paint "something reptilian". Did you paint this guy for that? (If you didn't ---- you should enter it...)

Nice job. I agree about the swords being a little funky, but you totally nailed it on the scales and eyes!

Yeah, I just repainted the swords and blacked them out with just a hint of the blue and silver. :P Thank you so much!

Interesting. Those swords were the standouts of the paintwork for me.

 

I liked the idea behind them, but not the execution. I painted over them and tightened up the blue. :P

So as someone who has trouble painting bones(can't figure why) what are your first impressions between bones and metal)?

You're work is quite good. And I like the swords, they look like they have a spell effect on them (like if they hit you, you'll be slowed, or covered in acid, or something worse... :blink: ).

 

Keep up the good work! ^_^

It's tough for me to say because 1) I just started painting minis last week. 2) I've only painted one metal mini. and 3) I don't use conventional mini paints.

I think my big thing was that I felt it was easier to prime and do a base wash on the metal mini, but the one metal mini I used was a bit battered and old, so I imagine it was less slick (and yeah, I know you don't have to prime the Bones, but I like a base to help the paint stick.)

Thank you! With the touch-up I did on the swords, the blue is thinned out a little so it doesn't dominate, but it's still there. :)

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
