Nicely done, Jay!

 

Critique- I think the red needs a bit more highlighting from what these pics show.

Thank you Ub3r, I forgot to use the clear red color as a highlight.  The red on this doublet was really intense when

I got finished layering, that I knew I needed to use the clear color to highlight it.  I forgot to do it !!  Duh.

The last four photos show the highlighting with the clear color.  Now I am content.

As usual, your eye was right on !

Nice detail there jay...   I am going to be the opposite of u3br though...  I think the flail could use some shadows as It seems to be all highlight.  Possibly some directed application of a small amount of black wash where the shadows would appear (between the chain links for example).  (of course if you added a touch of orange to the tunic highlights.... :devil: )

The Little Knight looks WONDERFUL...the black armor & the red surcoat work together SPLENDIDLY. OUTSTANDING WORK!

 

Red is one of those colors that doesn't photograph all that well. Digital Cameras, for all their quirky personality faults, do provide FINE excuses for the occasional painting miscue.

Thanks Malefactus !!

The red is messing with the photos.

It has totally wiped out the black ink between the chains, and the chain mail.

I can see it in person, but it sure is toned down in the photos.

There are three blacks in the helm, and armor.

Plus he is so dang small..ROFL.

It was fun, and that's what matters !

Thanks for you input, and I need to go back to a couple sillies now !

      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.

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred
