Happy birthday to you!  :bday:

 

A great way to spend your birthday. Garm looks great. I like your choice of gold/bronze(?) for the metals instead of steel. His palette is very coordinated.

Thanks Mierot !

I used old Bronze and Brass (Vallejo) for the metals, which I painted over a peacock green base coat.

I've been undercoating metals with either a dark brown if I'm doing gold, or green if I am doing a brass, bronze metal.

Oh, its been a great B'day so far !

Great job, Jay! I'm happy to see you taking all the stuff you've learned and the feedback people have given you and gleefully apply it to all your figures. You just keep growing as a painter, it's quite awesome.

 

So... when am I going to see the figures that I sent your way last week?  :devil:

Oh My, I am soooooooo glad that you are appreciating my work on Bloody Garm !

LOL

I loved coordinating the colors on this mini.

With its size and trying to create a vibrant miniature it was quite the challenge.

Thank you for your interest and comments !

I love it! Looks like he is in sunlight. Was that the effect you were going for?

This is an accumulative Mini. I got 12 of Red Box Games Miniatures, and decided to paint them.

The learning experience was so intense that I decided to incorporate everything I had learned in the last mini.

This was so complex, and challenging that I pulled out all the stops.

So, my emphasis was to get get high contrast, and High color highlights.

Sunlight is a good description , cause I wanted him to flash when it came to his highlights.

 

Thank you for your comment !

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      Hello forum Family, gonna show you my version of D'Vandra Lukesia, the metal one. I had hard time with her (but this is part of the fun, isn't?), so many tiny details and her face is sooo tiny 
      In any case I managed to paint her and I'm happy of she came out! 
      About the palette I chose the colors on the fly, started with the yellow skirt and simply add colors at the moment I needed to paint a detail, like the amaranth scarf, or the blue bag, the green vial, and so on.
      I hope you like her too :)

      Short Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo games for female Soviet troopers for WWII gaming.  Thiis expands their existing range and adds troops clad for winter.

      Story
      Hello! This is a Kickstarter to increase our existing WW2 Soviets range. Already massively popular since the first wave launch of 2016, we decided it needs reinforcements! The miniatures are sculpted and master cast, so this project is to cover the funds of production moulds and the initial casts.
       
      BORING BUT IMPORTANT TECHNICALS - The miniatures are 28mm scale and cast in extremely high quality white metal. Everything is single piece where possible. They come without bases supplied but with moulded on small puddle  bases (easy to chop off if you wish to). And of course -   they are compatible with the similar male miniatures from other manufacturers. They are supplied unpainted - so you can either paint them yourself or simply bring out the detail with an ink wash.
       
      Shipping is charged in addition to your pledge, AFTER THE CAMPAIGN, scroll to the bottom for more information. Please don't add the shipping cost during the campaign. EU Customers be aware of additional import fees, more on that later too.
