Thanks folks :-)

 

Great paintjob.But you may want to remove the link because there's a "no linky to commercial sites" here.

Link removed. I hadn't seen that in the rules - thanks!

Very good job!

 

I love the armor!

 

Thanks! The plates were painted in dark grey, then drybrushed with steel. The chainmail is black, drybrushed with steel. The whole thing was given a blast with a Klear/flat mix to give it a consistent finish.

 

Your brush control is already great, and I really love how crisp and clean you kept things!  Wonderful job!   ::):

 

Thanks Kuro. I've had lots of practice on fiddly 1/72 scale cockpits  :wacko:

 

Enamels! That is a medium beyond my abilities. Amazing work!   

 

Ha, I used to think the same about acrylics! But I think I'd just used terrible ones; I'm starting to build a collection of them now... I grew up using enamel paints, so I've got to know them pretty well. They're kind of second nature to me now. That said, now that I've started using the Reaper acrylics, I may start replacing my enamels with acrylics when I need to. I'll be mixing and matching both for a while to come though!

 

Excellent work he looks great and welcome to the forums ;)

 

Thank you! I've been lurking for a little while; seems like a great community, and I've already learned loads from reading the WIP threads.

I painted with enamels in my youth.

 

Acrylics are at least easier to clean if you get it on your hands.. and I do think the fumes of the enamels are less healthy.

 

Aside from that , you can get great results from both.

Doesn't most enamels still come in small metal pots?

(Every time I see my brother's collection of old, half dried-out Humbrols and abused brushes I get the heebie jeebies.)

Yes, enamels can get a bit smelly; acrylics are definitely healthier to breathe around! I've never been too concerned with having painted hands though!

Yep! I've found the tins to vary quite a lot in terms of drying out - if you're careful about resealing them properly, they can last for ages (I'm pretty sure I've still got some rarely used colours that are 15-20 years old!), but certain colours seem to dry out faster than others. Also, I think as Humbrol have changed their formulas over the years, some have been more susceptible to this than others (although I have zero scientific proof of this!).

      So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done.  Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side. 
       
      Anyway, here goes:  
       
      Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand  and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues).  Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company).   Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such.  As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.  
       
      99% reaper paints:  Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes. 
       
      This mini actually has kind of a weird story.  
       
      This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign.  This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary.  Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign.  But that's only part of the backstory. 
       
      I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004.  I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe.  I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield.  My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.  

      For sixteen years. 

      Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!  
       
      May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not.  Don't know how much more time I want to give this one.  Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.

      Hi folks!
       
      Today I started painting #03836 "Jakob Janssen, Monk" for our friend Jakob. Sending him some good vibes during this time and excited to finish this and ship it his way! I started with skintones and I'm currently working on painting him with a big ol' George Clooney smile  
       
      I want to finalize my color scheme but I'm really struggling! Many great painters have already posted photos of their version of this mini and I want to do something different than what's already been done. Here are the three I'm considering:
       
      The traditional Shaolin monk color scheme Iron Fist (Marvel) color scheme? (green & yellow) Halfling Monk (Pathfinder) color scheme? (green, red/orange, yellow with freehand insanity) Others??  
      HALP! The more options I research, the less decisive I get. Going to check back in tonight to see what folks think since I'll need to decide before my livestream tomorrow morning. At the end of the day, no matter what color scheme I choose, I'll do my absolute best to make sure it's something that will hopefully bring @JakobJanssen some creative joy   I'll check back in soon. Thanks in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!!

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.
