Thank you all for the compliments.


Don't worry Kharsin you aren't behind. I just really wanted to have my exchange mini sent out to Fishnjeeps in time for his birthday, so I pressed forward with completing him in time. There are a few items I could've fussed more with but in the end I think he turned out ok. Luckily I had an uneventful week and I convinced my weekly gaming group to have a paint night rather than gaming to give me some more time without cancelling on my group allowing me to get him done in time.


I can't wait to see more exchange minis completed and will be following along on the exchange thread too.

Ooh red hair is just so hard to paint... but you totally nailed it, this looks awesome! Love the color scheme, it all fits perfectly.  :blush:


Thank you, Red hair is my favorite hair color, so I paint it a bit too often.

Try the red hair triad by reaper. It simplifies things when you're getting the grasp of it. I haven't done red hair in a while... hmmm... This is definitely a good example of red hair! :)

Sound advice the red hair triad really helps with red hair I still use it for my redheads I just add a few other colors depending on intensity and brightness. 


For the King here I used Reaper's Blackened Brown for the deepest shadow and went as high as Reaper's blonde hair with just a touch of highlight orange added. In case anyone is interested here is a photo of my palette of color mixes and such of his hair colors. The only color that wasn't for his hair in this photo was the white, I had to fix his eye reflection when I noticed it was a bit off on the left eye.



I was going to post a WIP of this miniature after he was sent but I only really took good in process shots of his face and hair. Then I missed a sizeable chunk before I remembered to start again, but I did get most of the hair steps.

I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
