LK, they look really nice! Of, course, they would look even better if you painted the terrain they are on!

I really like these figs too and the blue looks great on them.  I'm finishing up a few today that I started over the weekend.

I'm working on it, albeit slowly. >_< In the last picture you can see a corner of a 2x2 flat I had painted; PaintWorks Gothic Stone triad, with a wash of Payne's Grey afterwards (testing my PG before I used it on figures). I like the blue-grey, but it may be a little dark...

Also a big fan of Anhur here. Good stuff!

Thanks! Up Anhur! Anhuria, abu!

Looking forward to seeing them!

 

The blues, as I mentioned, were: HD Dragon Blue, washed with Liquitex Payne's Grey, and then highlighted with HD Dragon Blue again. I went for layered highlights, rather than drybrushing indiscriminately. I could have pushed the highlights higher by mixing white and going over them again and again, but frankly I didn't want to take it that far - these are intended for tabletop use.

 

The Random Thread, by the by, had no issues determining which was metal primed white, metal primed black, and Bones. How 'bout y'all?

 

And as an aside: the previously done round shield (furthest left in the group shot) was drybrushed with Ashen Blue when I was doing the LTPK, because the instructions said "Dragon Blue" (a leftover from their Pro Paint incarnation) and I, of course, didn't have that colour. So I went with Ashen, not realizing they meant to use the original colour again... the kite shielded soldier, furthest right, was done exactly by the instructions. I find it interesting to see how dark they both are compared to the Dragon Blue versions newly done, especially at tabletop level.

      I had a metal mr. Grimm sitting around, so I figured better paint it before the bones version shows up. 
       
      So cold mr. Grimm

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.
