Great stuff all around. I'm a fan of the "prime white + lots of washes" technique for ghostly types. I also really like the skintone on your orc.

Hmmm will need to read up on the "prime white and add lots of washes" technique - i love the results!!!!

 

what i really like is the dried blood color on the sword - too often we see the wet blood look and it never looks quite realistic... but that looks EXACTLY like dried blood would - especially with the darker pooled areas and streaking and splatering - very cool (i mean really, what self respecting orc is going to wipe his sword clean between battles?) - what colors did you use?

 

your simple but very nice bases really help sell the figures - makes me realize i need to be putting more (any?) effort into this area

I'm glad you like it. The sword blood part is one of the pieces that I thought perhaps ended up a bit to much :)

 

They look wonderful but it is hard to tell from the pictures did they retain any of their transparency?  I like the results but would really hate to have a clear miniature and then cover that part up completely.

 

None of the mini's has retained any of their transparency. The fire elementals I painted earlier did retain some, but these did not.

Sure. I can't remember exactly but I started off with Army Painter Oak Brown mixed with Army Painter Uniform Grey. Then I think I switched for a lighter brown and a lighter grey when applying the highlights. Guessing on the picture I think I might just have added a lighter grey.... The start is Brown + Grey anyway. Then highlight with brighter colors :)

 

I really like the dried blood, ditto to what color did you use :)

 

I usually start with Army Painter Dragon Red and mix in a bit of Black. Then I add more red as I go along. Sometime I end with abit of Army Painter Pure Red. I accidentally spilled some Citadel Baal Red recently and I think it could make for a good blood compliment.

The skin on your orc berserker turned out great!  Mixing brown in your basecoat keeps him lively instead of looking like a stone statue.  The wash technique worked really well on the banshee, giving it a nice monochromatic look.  When I painted my Nightspecter I tried using a dark green ink for the wash without priming.  It works moderately well and mostly preserves the transparency, but obviously has its limitations.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.

      So, I just had to show off this pic.  I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters.  I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game.  
       
      In order from left to right:
      Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric.
      Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian.
      Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main).
       
      Sorry, I just really loved this picture.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      This is the wolf from the bones animal companions set (77216).  Googled a bunch of wolf photos and then the wolfie painted up really quick.  Might put some plants on the base later.
