I love the pants, the jacket and the shirt. I feel like the crossbow could use a little more weathering. 

As I was looking at the pics, i thought "Oh, he used a paper towel as a background. It's neat how the dot's make an impression of falling snow while he's out in the wild." Or maybe I'm just really in a Christmas mood. Did anyone else get this feeling?

 

 

EDIT: Also, I like your base. It really sells him as being off on his own.

It's a great mini and well painted as to the crossbow, it does look like it is brand new and I think that may be due to the fact that appears to have no grain detail on the wood. But you have done an excellent job.

Most of the ones I've seen are so dark brown as to be almost black. But they are old. They tend to have darker edges, I guess from handling.

 

So maybe some grime where hands and fingers would be much of the time?

Oh, also the crossbow doesn't have a string, which affects its look.

 

The ones I've seen have really thick strings, like rope, wound heavily around the ends of the bow.

 

I think this one looks good, just very clean.

Really like the shading on the flesh.  Very smooth transitions. Same with the pants and shirt. I like his gray hair but it could use either a bit of shading or highlighting to enhance the texture. His eyes are a little "wild" looking although very, very well done.  I'm not sure if it's the camera, but the fur looks a little "plastic."  Maybe some deeper shading would reduce that.  Great job on the belt buckle and other metal fixtures. And what exactly is that blue scarf-thing?  Looks good but I don't know what it is.

I think stringing crossbows is a little beyond my non-existent modding skills, but I do think I'll try painting it a little darker.

I'm going to practise on the crossbow of my Pin-up Hunter first though.

The fur isn't so shiny looking in hand, that's down to my poor camera skills, but my struggle with painting short hair continues!

 

I'm pretty sure the scarf is a hunting trophy, it looks a lot like part of the robes that a monster called The Watcher is made of.

Great job! I wouldn't have guessed this guy was a KD figure as he lacks horns/woe/ insanity/etc. I strung a bow once using my wife's hair. I believe there's a tutorial linked on my WIP of the Nubian Princess or something like that. Aren't these larger than 28mm?

They're 35mm I think (30 something anyways).

 

I'll check out that tutorial, as I said, I'll try out some stuff on another crossbow and if it works I'll return to this guy.

      Separating a bee from its honey is always a risky prospect, but especially when they are giant, man-eating Titan Bees.
      However, when smeared with a concoction made with the pulped remains of it's larva, a person is temporarily rendered virtually invisible to the Bees. And so the Bug Thief started a thriving business stealing bee babies to make into potions, but how did she survive going into the hive in the first place? That's a mystery to be solved another day.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, her bee striped fur thingy didn't come out like I hoped (and she's stuck with rather wonky eyes) but I think she ended up looking fairly decent overall.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      While the title may sound like a part of a weird children's book series, it's actually a trio of Kingdom Death Pin-ups!
       

       
      The Bug Thief, her right arm goes across her face so I've left it off for now.
       

       
      The Swamp Girl. I have to paint her base, paint her and then sandwich the clear bit in between without making a mess.
       

       
      The Dogpole Mother, the hard part will be painting the Dogpoles so that they actually look like something!
       
      Starting with the Bug Thief:-
       

       
      Painted her face and boobs (Rosy Flesh > Flesh Wash > Rosy Flesh > Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh), added a touch of Scarlett Red to the final highlight for her lips and painted her eyes (The left one is a bit buggy, but I'm hoping it'll look better once I paint her hair).
