Cool!  You could make him pop with just the slightest silver highlight (drybrush even) on his armor.  Would give him some more depth and actually make the black appear darker if you just get the edges.

Thank you!

Thanks! You're right, I'll go back and give that a shot.

Fur looks great!

 

I am trying desperately to make a comment about wolves painting fur, but I am drawing such a blank.....

Looking terrific.

Made me smile remembering when I painted that mini also.

Like that contrast on the fur, and the armor.

Very cool! Try using Tamiya X-27 Clear Red mixed with some black for a cool blood effect ;)

That's exactly what I did. It's a really cool effect; I've used it on a few other figures, too.

 

The key is to not get too carried away with it.

He looks great for tabletop. 

 

I have a thought about the reds, because I use one of two methods when painting them.

 

Method A ("'eavy metal style")

1:  Base coat in pink.

2:  Paint over two coats with the red of choice (should give you a rich color)

3:  Wash with brown ink/sepia ink.

4:  Highlight with either a pink tone or orange tone.  highlight to taste.

 

Method B ("Khador Red")

1:  Base in a dark brown-black or brown-yellow (Vallejo "Charred Brown")
2:  Add in a Darker red tone (for me this is Vallejo Scarlett Red)

3:  Add in a rich red tone (Vallejo Gory Red). 

4:  highlight upward to orange as you please.

 

Method A brings out a really bright red.  Really happy red, or super bloody depending on the red tone you use.  Method B is much more muted and works really well.  You can also start Method B with a medium earth or leather brown and have a slightly lighter tone, while still maintaining a dark richness. 

 

I hope either of these methods help!

Awesome work, I'm loving it. I accidentally bought two of these guys before I  ever started painting, so I'm going to play with them in different ways. I got some of Citadel's Blood for the Blood God, it's been 6 months since I painted the cap of it and it still looks like shiny fresh blood. Norgol's axe is going to get some love.

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!

      Keith is very happy that he joined the Cult of the Obsidian Otter. He's met lots of like-minded people, he's getting plenty of fresh air and all that axe-swinging is building his upper body strength.
       
      And the fact he can't get She Sells Sanctuary out of his head is just a bonus.

      I've had Ragnaros (or Raggers, as I like to think of him) for almost a year. I was stuck on what colours to use for ages. Red and brass, my first thought, are a bit too Khorne-y for my liking, and I didn't want to do him in the classic plate mail colours. So I settled for a pretty mute palette: Vallejo Neutral Grey, a blue/grey sample from Reaper, and Army Painter Dark Tone, Plate Mail Metal and Rough Iron. I did the eyes with Vallejo Red to add some colour.
       
      I thought about doing something flashy with his sword and shield, but then figured that Raggers isn't the type to bugger about with flaming swords and shields made of human skin. I also wonder how easy it would be to outrun him seeing as he's wearing about three tons of armour. The figure itself is so heavy you could put it in a sock and use it to mug people.
       
      Raggers isn't based yet; after slathering on what felt like the fourth gallon of Dark Tone to finish him off I'm taking a break.
       
      As always, comments, criticisms and cash are welcome.
