This weekend's big project: Baphomet (aka Minotaur Demon Lord).
I want him to look a bit off or unappealing. I went with 90% cool / cold colors, primarily blue-grey and white metal. The warm bronze hopefully emphasizes that pallor. Olive drab - the color of his little apron-thing, is of course drab and generally not a super great looking color, so it was a natural choice.
Noteworthy: ALL Reaper paints except for the stone of the base, which is my usual Americana craft paint stone recipe). Almost everything is at least six layers deep. The flesh is painted up from black to white using cool greys (Stone grey, misty grey, up to dragon white). Armor starts with blackened steel, then tarnished, and highlighted with Blade. Bronze is Dragon Bronze washed with brown wash and re-highlighted with Dragon Bronze / Ancient Gold.
This is also one of my only works in which I painted parts separately and then put the mini together.
Cringeworthy: One of these days I will set up a proper miniature painting rig because I generally do not take good pics. Just using my camera phone, bracing my hands against the table, and hoping for the best. This time I went through the extra trouble of using an old black T-shirt to make an impromptu background. Wow - exertion!
I also missed the collar of his armor harness. When I put everything together, I just sort of overlooked that there should be visible brown leather between his mane and his head. I'll come back and get it later.
In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard. I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week. Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed. Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.
Space Lord Diorama, freely inspired by the cover art from Monster Magnet (rock band) albums.
I had good help from my dad, who is an amatuer photographer, with the photos.
I'm really happy with the result, both the photos and the paint.
All kinds of critiq and comments are appressiated.
I also posted theese photos in the Diorama Contest.

This past week I painted the Drys, Dryad, figure from the Bones II, Sylvan Creatures set. Since I was in kind of a Frostgrave frame of mind when I was thinking about painting her, I decided I would try to paint her up in winter colors, like a dryad that has been unexpectedly awoken from her Winter sleep, and is not happy about it.
