Looking forward to how this turns out. I accidentally bought two of these, so it'll be interesting to see the different ways I can paint it.

Clip the horns, change the axe, cloak and fur colours and the tint to the armor can all work for variables. I have two since the Vampire level was such a ridiculously good deal I doubled up.

What color scheme will you be going for here? I'm so curious about this now.

Wasn't sure, only certain thing was a suggestion of grey by the player. Went with grey cloak with a winter wolf pelt above. Some blue got on the shoulder pads so I went with a Martha stewart Tiger Lily (orange pearl) to cover it up and make the pads bronzy-copper once the (printer) ink magic wash did it's job. Until that flub i was going to do a dark blue alcohol ink wash, but since orange and blue don't tend to agree, I went with a nice safe black wash.

EDIT

 

And some blood to anoint the axe.

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      I have had minis for decades with no interest in painting them...until last year. This is my first mini paint job; done 09/16.
       
      Primer: Krylon Maxx Primer grey, spray. (Smooth coverage, no obscured detail, dried very hard)
      Paint: Plaid's Folk Art craft paints. (Doesn't flow well. When thinned for flow, doesn't cover well. MANY coats of very water-thinned paint.)
      Finish: Krylon Matte Finish, spray (Dries matte and hard. Works great.)

      Show off might be a bit of a misnomer, I'm not the happiest with these guys, mostly putting this up for tips on what I could do better next time.
       
      Paste from final post in  WIP thread:
       Alright "finished" with these guys. When I say "finished" I mean I'm overcoming my perfectionism to move on to something else because they're serviceable. Tried to use some speed painting techniques, but still took way too long, need to work on that. If anyone's got any tips on how I could have made them better without, layering/glazing/something else that takes forever, they would be much appreciated!

      Currently I am going through the second Reaper Bones Learn-to-Paint kits (which are AWESOME!) that teaches shading and blending. What I'm wondering now is what are some guidelines about when to shade and blend and when to dry brush?

      I'm not sure if many people were asking for a drybrushing tutorial, as it isn't the most complicated technique, but hopefully you pick up at least 1 new thing in this video!
       


       
      Sidenote: should I not post weekly videos in this subforum?
