I'm doing something a little different.

Rather than do a WIP, I'm kinda doing an "Okay this is what I am up to".

I'll post things to this "WIP" as I move along. 

Gets me away from the "do some work, take photos, edit photos, crop photos,

post photos syndrome.  I need to focus on just painting for a bit.

So, here is the mini almost all base painted.

I'm planning on some freehand on that shield.

He's also painted in old bronze for the armor.

Moving along in the painting.  Put a midtone in the cloak, and shield, green pants, browned up the leathers,

and add a base blue to cloth at bottom of armor. 

Lots of highlight opportunity.

This is a very dynamic figure !

 

Here are some photos.

The armor was way too shiny for my taste.

I went over it with a glaze,  then more highlighting.

I need to cover over some of the brown glaze in a few spots.

Though I like the toned down effect much more than the previous look.

Aha !!!  Antique gold was the resolution to the shading problem.

I reworked the entire armor section on the mini, and made adjustments to the shadow

layers on the basic colors.

This is looking much more to my liking.

 

Here are some photos.

Amazing what some time, light, paint, optivisor, and my W&N brushes can do.

I just decided that my coffee was cold enough probably to drink...LOL.

Always can tell when I am enjoying a miniature, the coffee is ice cold when

I remember that it is there.

 

Here's where I am at with the Warrior, and I REALLY like where he is at now !

Really digging the colors.

Jay

looking real good there mister Jay!    I especially like the green cloak and its highlights.  They are bright and well blended in.

Really fantastic work on him. I can tell you are enjoying this project!

This one is a blast to do,all that detail, and sliding the highlighting around, and trying to go with the

dynamics of the figure.  its exciting to do !

ROFL, glad the knight is armed!  Playing with the greens, and golds, and doing a little freehand;

makes this whole project a delight.  Thanks to you both. !

      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 everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!
