Just spent the last hour and a half painting.

I decided to work on the fur, and get that going...

"Word to the Wise"... Do not forget to do the prep work before starting on stuff.

I started with the highlight color (thinking the undercoat was dark enough..(WRONG).

So all that painting, required me to paint it over with the undercoat again.

Thats called learning, and gee, I just got experience..ROFL

i've come to the conclusion that fur is a pain in the Nether Regions.

Been doing my corrections, and enhancements, and working on bringing the fur along.

Think I've gotten closer to what I am wanting.  Still needs some more color; but its getting there.

I think a good solid Reddish Brown will make me happy.

 

So here are a few photos of where The Craven Stand now.

Have been working on the fur, and making other adjustments this evening.

Done for the day.

 

Here is where The Craven stand at the moment.

Next it is on to the leathers and the skulls, and whatever else it there..ROFL.

Tre, this is one magnificent playground !

 

Here are some photos:

Started base coating the leather.

I'm using Cavalry Brown here, it will be glazed over with Brown Wash/Brown Liner.

I will probably use two different tanned leather mixes. 

At this stage of the game I REALLY take my time, and try to reduce mistakes,

over paints, and things that require me to go back and cleanup the mini.

I see a couple small spots that I will clean up when I start to refine the paint job.

I like the feel of the miniature at this stage. 

 

Here are the Craven with a Cavalry leather base coat.

Has been a busy morning; but I managed to get some time in on those leathers.

Brought everything back into control.

Put lonestar leather on leggings, and armbands, toned down the Cavalry leather.

The camera is making it look darker than it actually is.

Think It has no highlighting to bounce off at this stage.

Its slowly getting there, and I am totally enjoying these three.

Challenging, but Oh So much fun.

 

Here is where the Craven are at this stage.

Looking forward to following this WIP. Are you using a normal camera? I think that your minis would look better with a steadier photo, maybe a tripod? :)

I am using my cellphone with a tripod. 

I try to take better photos for the show off thread.

I am still base coating at this stage, no highlighting going on, and I'm still color experimenting.

I'm really not that concerned about having great photos (which is one of my shortcomings).

Thanks for your interest in what I am doing, these Red Box Game miniatures are incredible !

So much detail it makes  my head swim, and they are 25mm.

Horrible Discovery.

I opened up my Masterson's wet palette this morning, and much to my surprise, there was

mold growing on the left hand lower corner of the paper.  Seems the sponge underneath was rotting.

(ICK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).  Ordered more sponges to replace the one that I had in there.

Didn't know that they can go bad.

I'll just use my small well palette for paints until the sponges get here.

At least I am doing Base work at the moment, I'll hold off the fine stuff for a bit !

You can wash the sponges in the laundry with towels. Just no fabric softener and don't put in dryer, let air dry.
