There ain't nothing much that can beat painting a meaty barbarian! Rage on bro!

NMM = non metallic metal (or, non metal metallic, I've heard it both ways). It means painting metal objects without using metallic paints. Mostly blues and greys for steel, and yellows and Browns for gold/brass/bronze.

 

The barbarian is fantastic. It was definitely time well spent.

Thanks guys!

 

I keep hearing about this...'NMM'. What is NMM?

Ah, I'm sorry, I should have written it out. Thanks to seej for explaining it!

Wow.  That sword is a joy to behold!  The gradients make me think it really IS some highly-polished metal blade surface at first glance.  The random scratches/scuffs are a great touch to break up what would otherwise be a fairly simple geometry.  The bronze guard and pommel have a nice, warm gradient that conveys a sense of being "brushed" metal.  And of course the details elsewhere on the figure are top-notch as well.  I also appreciate how the base gives a sense of location without being so "busy" as to distract from the figure.

      Disciplined like a hobgoblin, I'm staying home painting some stuff. Here's a Chainmail Miniatures model 88349, hobgoblin fighter I completed last night. This model was sculpted by Mike McVey and produced by Wizards of the Coast in 2001 for the Drazen's Horde faction. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics to paint it. Stay safe and disciplined.

      “OMG, I found a Nokia and it still works!”
       
      So, I’ve been in a painting funk for a while.
      Then a friend suggested we try out Zona Alfa, which AIUI is a post apoc skirmish game set in Eastern Europe.
      It only needs 4-10 minis to start off, so I decided to get off my arse and  paint up a Warband.
      “Karolina’s Angels” will probably have 4-6 members.
      The first member is Luce (AKA HFA121 “Widow” from Hasslefree)
      Hopefully I will have enough drive to paint the rest.
      Thanks for looking.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first model I painted this year. Seems like I'm having a busy January...
      02789, Talarand the Blackguard was sculpted by Tim Prow. It's one of the top five favorite model I painted so far. This suit of armor is astounding.

      So as the title says this is the 1st mini I've attempted nmm on and I could use some advice on what I'm doing wrong and how to improve, please and thank you in advance.

      Dire Wolves are the tradition pets for AD&D Hill Giants, so I bought this fine fellow to replace the smilodon that came with my Hill Giant Hunter.
       
      I always use reference pictures when painting real creatures, and this looks a bit like a real black wolf, so I'm quite happy. There are a lot more colours and steps in this chaps fur than on any of the accompanying giants, though I don't know if it shows.
       
      The joy of Bonesium means that I could easily cut off his base and glue him directly to this piece of actual granite. I recommend doing this before ANY paint is applied to either surface, to get the best bond. Else you often pull the paint off the rock and have to re-glue it, in my experience.
