(I have to admit, I feel weird commenting on my own thing to explain what I did, but in looking at other folks' work lately I've been noticing how much I appreciate it when others explain their own colours & reasons, so on the off chance that anyone wants to take inspiration from one of my minis I guess I'll start doing the same... ::): )

 

 

I love all those greens in that cloak! :wub:

The cloak and the robe were both done with a base of Vallejo Model Color 70.898: Dark Sea Blue. (Ben Kometz got me hooked on that and their Armour Brown. :lol: ) For the robe, I added some of Reaper's new (not-yet-released) Tropical Blue I got from the Christmas promotion, and for the cloak I mixed some Reaper Viper Green. There are also a couple places where I added an extremely thin glaze of Armour Brown in the shadows, but I don't think it made a big difference in the end. At any rate, I was going for something that'd look like a rich, heavy fabric, and I feel like I got it, so I'm happy. ::): 

 

The greens are a little less bright and plastic-y in real life. I think if I were going to try to enter it in a contest I might spend a bit longer, bring some of the shadows back, etc, but like almost everything else I do it's intended for tabletop use so being brighter is definitely better - helps it stand out on the battlefield.

 

 

I like the white skin. Excellent choice.

Thanks! It's a base of Reaper Moldy Green and the highlight is the Spectral White I got from the Hallowe'en promo last year. I expected it to be a little more obviously different, but the two ended up balancing each other out really well so it just looks like a "nice" sorta pasty white. ::): 

 

 

And on the off chance that anyone's curious about the staff: Base of Vallejo Armour Brown, and the tentacles are highlighted with various mixes of Armour Brown and Reaper Pumpkin Orange (from Hallowe'en again - I got a lot of great paints from the promos!), with a bit of Spectral White thrown in a couple places. The gem on top is pure Viper Green with a bit of white mixed in for highlighting.

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      Here’s the list of colors I used;

      This is 3 of the elves from the Grenadier Elves Sinister box set (SKU 3002).  The rest are on my painting desk, in various stages of completion.  The rightmost  swordsman had a miscast, so he got a spider shield from my bit box.  He was originally dual wielding.  From the back you can tell that his hand is not really there.
