The problem with the highlights on the cloak is actually the thickness of them

Technically true, but it's one of those quirks of paint ingredients. Anything with the basic white pigment included throws me almost every time, normally I just glaze midtones to fix it after.


That paint is as thin as what I had been using all afternoon, and it's a great demonstration of the strong opacity of that white pigment.


Chuckle, the physical thickness, or width, of the paint at each highlight.

Thanks for sharing this and reminding us you're human :)

I keep telling you folks! :)


I'm glad for some of the discussion this has spawned, as there are a lot of things brought up that have been on my mind in general. Even if I'm not stoked about the paint, I am about the conversation.


I've never tried wet blending, another thing to try out at some point!


wet in wet is stupid easy and for me shaves hours off of a paint job.  it does take getting used to but a day of practice and its easy.  After that its repetition and brush control......


Definitely try it.

Disagree, I wouldn't use a thinner highlight on cloth, lest it read as shiny.


More intermediate layers and better blending and it would've been fine like that...and defeated the purpose :p

      Sandra Garrity makes some of my favorite Dwarves, and the detail on this one stood out. It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there are some Norse Futhark runes on the blade of the sword in blue that only appear if I rotate the figure 45% left or right. Also, I love dwarves in green.

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.

      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.

      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      Hey, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I haven't been very active on here for a while, but I've been painting. I figured that I'd start putting up my backlog of models. I love Dwarves, and this was a really cool model to paint. I'm particularly happy with the NMM, but if I were to change one thing, I would probably alter the tone of the hair and beard a bit so that it doesn't so closely match the armor.

      It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.

      I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back.  TMM was used on the metal.
