Hi all. I've got a few minis floating around that were painted when my skills were lesser. Been humoring the idea of touching them up. My finished minis are sealed with a coat of Krylon Matte spray. Any tips for touching up minis? Anything to look out for?
"On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless! – but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle!"
After watching Sleepy Hollow the other day, I wanted to share with you this Headless Horseman that I painted up a year ago for a Sleepy Hollow One-Shot.
At the time, Nolzur's did not have their unpainted version available, so I tracked down a Pathfinder Pre-Paint and decided to give it a makeover. The mini was a birthday gift to a friend who was running her first ever D&D game.

And the finished result!
It's still a bit drab, but definitely better than the original. And the recipient of the gift loved the present! Though our true adversary did turn out to be a flame-skull and the horseman barely saw any table time! It's still a great piece to memorialize a DM's first game!
I have been rooting around in the boxes of yore, and this gem was found hidden away deep within a pile of ancient metal.
This one was built and partly painted, but also slightly damaged. The wrists have been bent to reposition the drumsticks, and one of them had snapped off. Some quick repairs and a sloppy paintjob later, ta-daa:
The "Arachno-Assassins" are a small lineup of six-armed skeletons that Reaper originally released sometime around the turn of the century in their white metal Dark Heaven line. They seem to still be available from Reaper, although none of them have made it into Bones PVC, which might be indicative of their sales potential. This is a pity as some of them are quite nice.
I bought a few of them back in the day, and still have some in various states from bare metal through undercoated to painted-and-stashed-away-somewhere.
Well, this one is done at long last. A bit crude, but still. Done.
Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me!
Hit me slowly, hit me quick, hit me, hit me, hit...me!
For some obscure reason, this mini made me think of the song by Ian Dury.
