gloss sounds the best.. it is a wet jungle after all!

 

 

Check the reference pics. Are scorpions not glossy naturally?

 

 

Thx Guys!

 

I will use a gloss sealer then!

 

Funny thing, I showed the Scorpion to my oldest stepvixen, she said: you know, since you visit that forum, your painting has improved!

I always feel that full on gloss sealer looks wrong at the scale we paint...

 

If you want shiney, use a MATTE / SATIN sealer...

 

I personally think that FLAT is the best at our scale....

 

Think of all the aquatic minis you have seen, were any of them painted with gloss sealer? and they are undoubtedly 'wet'....

 

just my 2P

I like it.

Just some notes having worked with insects and arachnids for a long time. In the wild most scorpions are pretty drab in color, except some of the large African ones which are black. the ones in the US are a drab brown. However, if you shine a black light on a scorpion at night, get out your neon colors. Scorpions fluoresce under a black light, and also if the moon light hits them just right. I would think about a night scene, and then you could go to town with the fluorescence. Of course this is fantasy, so who needs realism.

Thank you!

 

I like natural colours a lot.

For this scorpion I wanted more of a fantasy approach, but leaning towards the colours some shiny beetles have.

 

I have more scorpions and insects.

Each will get his own colour, I want the armies to be a wild bunch of colours.

 

My Reptiles will sometimes be very realistic and sometimes not.

Of course reptiles have a lot of nice colours in the wild too, so that makes it easier to do.

I agree, I think it turned out exactly how you wanted it to. I wouldn't change a thing!

 

 

I probably shouldn't be showing you this.............

She is waiting for resin bases to be added to my order, will probably ship in a week or two,

 

Yep, great minds think alike.!

LOL the moment it popped up on one of my feeds I had to show you, thinking "this would be great for what you had in mind!" Yep, it's great to see that we're on the same page.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, here are some pictures of a 02126, Arachno-Assassin sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I had this damaged mini for a long time and I decided to replace its upper left hand falchion for a sword from the 02455, Weapons pack IV. It was a very fun and easy model to paint. I intend to use it as a "boss" in a major encounter, so I painted it in red to increase the focus on it and point out how dangerous it is. The bluish bladed sword will be magical, maybe even cursed.

      Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
