I like it, you might want to drop a little black wash onto the gold to give it depth

Really like your approach to cool whites...

I'd say a brown wash, but yes it needs some shadowing to be complete.

 

Very nice job on him overall though!!

 

The shield, the wings, and the sword got a brown wash, but it does appear that I forgot to do the trim somewhere along the way.  ^_^   Hitting it again would help, but today is for football! 

 

Thanks for looking.

mmmh i'm trying to figure out what doesn't convince me....

 

i guess the rivets!

 

white on the shield is really well done

 

i think you should place a bit of your azure wash around the rivets and overall more in the crevices of the armour.

 

 

as i said the shield is reaaally good it's perceived as white but has depth

I like this guy.  the front of the shield is the best part for me.  I like the depth of shading on that part.  And i agree about the rivets needing to be highlighted better.  It would totally bring this guy to life.  My only other comment is that i would make the back of the shield a dark brown to separate it visually from his left arm.

      Painted this guy in an aquatic theme.

      One of last year's limited release figures that I painted during the summer.  She has the right amount of detail, I spent some time trying to do NMM on her armor and weapon.  Felt that the pose was a bit dull and static, and her face is odd.  Liked how the green part of her cloak came out, not so happy with the yellow, need to practice more,

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂
