Those are some really cool looking figures and I've not seen them done before.  Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Thank you!


While I love the popular, broadly useful miniatures that are Reaper's bread-and-butter, I find myself drawn to the more quirky figures.


I took a couple of side views of the yellow one to show how I bent it a bit out of its plane (I need to take some of the red one later).

I mixed a semi-translucent creamy butter-yellow out of Yellow Ochre and Titanium White and brushed it over the upper surfaces of the yellow one (the above pictures are from a later stage).  The first layer of something like this tends to look grey and colorless.

But the next layer really pops.

Without the flash, under natural table light, the yellow pops even more.



I brushed some of the color over the red one's base as well.

These are looking good.  I don't think I've seen anyone paint them before.  


Those guys have what I call "the Gumby pose". I sometimes cut the staff off the base and bend that arm so it is more horizontal/pointing forward for more depth.

I took a bit of Mars Orange (a vivid opaque rust orange, not available in my usual Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics but rather an old tube of Winsor and Newton -- I don't know why this color is so difficult to find in acrylics; it is fabulous) and brushed in some highlights on the red one and shadows on the yellow one.

Fantastic work !!!!!!!!!!!!

I adore how you are making your choices based on the figure in your hand.

What is going to Amp a section, draw the eye around to focus on another aspect of the sculpt.

Beautiful subtle shifts in intensity and shading.

This is a piece to be studied SLOWLY...  Much thought, and much skill.

Not Kiddin !
