Started work on this Uskuluz Greyhide about 85% of the way through Anval Thricedamned. I think you all will like this progression everyone. Please let me know of some color choice you might think for the bits and bobs hanging off of him.

The base is done with spackle, sand and some old pieces from a Reaper figure WAY back in the day. 10points if you can figure it out!

Off to a good start, no real feedback for you yet. I'd probably make the armor and leathers on him pretty dirty looking though.

Updates: Watered down grey - Slowing pushing the grey to the recesses. I then added a bit of Vallejo German Grey in in the recesses again to darken them.

In my next photo's you'll see me use a less watered down grey to blend so that only a slight bit of purple is peering through..

Here is a close up of the eyes, and if you look you can see some of the skin updates. I got some MAJOR work done on it last night but forgot to take pictures this morning.

I was thinking of adding some OSL to the eye region, what do you think.

Nah, I wouldn't OSL the eyes. They look great as is to me.

 

ETA: That staff though, that could have some cool OSL components...

You can see the hint of the purple in the recesses and the top of the warts.

Oh to find the motivation. Why do video games have to be so good!?!?!

 

Do I need to take away your video games young Arc?? Get to painting!

Finally got some work done... (video games, breaking up with my girl friend... not a good combo for painting).

ANY-WHOO.

 

I need multiple opinion on this: The pauldron - I am using TMM and it's turning out well but I think I have to push the color more. I am having difficulty doing it; Pure Silver and Shadow steel for the highs and lows.

Additionally, it is getting a regular bath in brown wash to make it look dirty.

Help would be appreciated!!!!!

Next I am working on the Centipede: The red is a base coat. I have already glazed it in Scorched Metal and it looks great! More pictures to come tomorrow.

Try using a really watered down glaze of his skin tone on that metal, darker closer to the skin, it'll look like it's reflecting off the metal, but also tie it in together.

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?

      For your consideration, I present Kallaguk, Troll King. This model was painted as part of a theme back in March 2020 where green needed to be the primary color for a Twitch streamer I follow. I had a lot of fun with this one trying my best to only use various shades of green. Happy with its result. C&C welcome.

      Hi Everyone,

      This is my first time sharing my miniatures step by step, and excited to do so. Hopefully I can learn some things and everyone else who views the thread will learn a bit too.
      I have been looking forward to the Starcadia board game and especially painting the minis that come with it. So first up is the Weeble alien monster. I picked it for 2 reasons, 1 because it was a simple model and I wanted to try my hand at the big eye. There are 4 total Weeble models and it took about 4-5 hours to get to the point in the last photo. I decided to mimic the illustration that came on the Weeble card in the game, so I am using a similar color scheme.

      First step was prepping the model, and removing the mold lines. 2 of the 4 models had 2 bad areas on their left fin that left gaps and a rough spot. To fix it, I tried a new method, I put a little varnish on each area. If you haven't tried it, I definitely recommend it for small gaps or trouble areas that need filled or smoothed. I put a small dab on, let it dry and done, no need to pull out the putty.

      2nd step was priming. I don't like the spray can so I use gesso. It might take a little longer, but no noxious fumes and extra space needed, just brush it on and let it dry. I just spread it thin and quick most of the time, hence the streaking in the picture. The streaking never shows on a finished mini from what I have experienced.

      3 is where the fun began for me, choosing the colors and beginning to paint. My most recent elven minis, I started experimenting with different ways to do base coating and time around I am trying a colored base that is different that the final paint layer. I'm trying this out to see if I can reduce a step in my process and still get results I like. After examining the illustration, I settled on a blue-green for the body of the Weeble, and yellow for the eye. I plan on keeping with the warm yellow highlight in the front and the cold blue / purple shadow in the back. Once I decided that, I chose my basing colors, of a dark yellow brown for the front and dark blue purple for the back.

      4 with the base shadows on the model, I started working from dark to light. I mixed up a glaze of a medium green and medium purple blue. I gradually worked up the colors with multiple layers making sure to blend the colors together where the transition occurred between them. I left the eye alone, because the dark yellow brown was perfect for the yellow eye.

      5 once I was happy with the dark colors, I moved on to my mid-tones. I mixed up glazes of yellow green for the warm light and a blue green for the cold light. I took my time on this step again applying the glazes in layers to build up the color. I decided to try reflected / bounce lighting on the model, so I applied the blue green more on top of the model and the yellow green more on the bottom. I imagine the lighting being blue white (like a daylight bulb) which results a warmer reflected light in the areas not directly hit by the blue light.

      6 after a while I moved on to the eye. I continued with painting dark to light, so I chose an orange brown for the light area and the same yellow brown and dark blue purple for the shadowed area. Again I gradually applied the glazes and blended them together.

      Overall I am pleased with the direction it is going, and it is still far from done. I having gotten to the brightest highlights or even attempted the mouth yet. After that will be the finishing touches, the green slime, and scaly lumps. In the illustration the lumps are black but I don't think black will look good, any suggestions? I was also thinking of doing a slime trail, or more drool I've not done something like that before does anyone have any suggestions in the direction? Or should I not do a slime trail or more drool?
