So I picked this up from the $5 box at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT....

 

Just an exercise in GW metallics so far, starting with Tin Bitz, Brazen Brass, Dwarf Bronze, and Shining Gold, with MSP Leather White on the coals...post-14271-0-46026000-1467173316.jpg post-14271-0-41669600-1467173317.jpg post-14271-0-45794800-1467173318.jpg post-14271-0-57774500-1467173319.jpg 

 

Thanks for looking!

Nice!

 

I own all of those GW paints too, but I must say, they look good, but the coverage is so-so.

Nowadays I prefer the Scale 75 metallics. Much better coverage.

 

That being said, nice job!

As a rule, I much prefer the Scale 75, but I had some of the GW out for the Xorn, so I decided to run with it.....

The GW seems to be blending nicely to!....

More practice......

I was trying for 'the Charcoal brickettes in the grill' look for the 'flame' but it looks like I am going to have to go back to the drawing board....

 

Suggestions??

 

Thanks!

I'd give those bricks a black wash.

 

See how that comes out, then highlight some reds/orange for the glow.

 

You want to show smouldering ashes, but you need a touch of black still.

So I went back and re did the coals after looking at images of charcoal and coal burning....

Still didn't come out the way I wanted, but passable enough for table top use....

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
       
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      This is the last mini finished in December 2020, mini number 79 of the year.  I hit 97 mini if I count large minis as 2 each.  Not too shabby, my goal was to finish 50.
       
      So this mini is the Female Halfling II from the Julie Guthrie series 2 from Grenadier (SKU 8145).  She is the smallest mini I have painted in a long time, so I am super happy with her face.
