You correct Jay!   I like the orange and it is highlighted very nicely.....  but I also like the green armour with the bronze edging! 

 

Any chance for an up close set of pics that we can expand on our monitors to 10 inches so we can stare at all of the detail?

 

*** yes Armour is spelled correctly ... I am Canadian! ****

ROFL on the Armour comment. 

I am having issues with my mouse, it is in a failure mode, so I can't crop.  Give me a couple days and I'll add a couple close ups.

THERE IS ANOTHER WAY TO SEE THE PHOTOS ENLARGED.  TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.

a. Click on the first photo.

b. Click on "CTRL and the plus sign at the same time, "+" seven times (it will enlarge the photo).

c. Click on next on photo and go through each one.

d.  Click on CTRL and "-" (next to plus sign) seven times to return your screen back to normal viewing.

 

I am really happy that I made a bronze colour mixture also.  I remember how frustrating it was to do that concept in the beginning.

Very nicely done!

 

I like that you challenge yourself with the mini and the basing now!

 

I have this figure in hand too (on the shelf of shame) and I think you've inspired me to finish him up for my DSM entry at reapercon!

Thanks UB3R !

I have to admit that I'm never bored painting one of these !

Glad I could inspire you to do this one for your DSM Entry.  A couple challenging little bits !

Basing will be a blast for you (as Always).  Looking forward to seeing what you do with him.

Very nice work!

 

That's one of the (several) minis on my DSM wishlist.

Thank you !

He is a very interesting sculpt to paint.  Lots of "bits" that need attention.

The armor can be a bear to handle, and that face on the armor while have you scratching

your head.. "Accent, highlight, minimize, maximize, color contrast"...and it isn't easy to paint either.

It'll give your painting skills a real workout !

I like it!

 

You're pushing yourself to improve!

 

Awesome!

Thanks Xherman;

It's gotten to be a lot more fun recently since I have given myself permission to experiment, and push my envelope.

Basing is a LOT more fun now !

 

It looks like you successfully challenged yourself. The Warrior painted up BEAUTIFULLY. Swapping the axe for the sword makes him unique. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks Mal;

Folks like yourself have been giving me great ideas to experiment with, and so I just give it a whirl.

If it works, great, if not, paint it differently.  I've stopped being my worst critic !

Nicely done! I've been eyeing this mini myself but I haven't taken the final leap to purchase it yet.

It is well worth the challenge of doing so !!!

Just remember its one of those 30mm mini's.  its going to test your painting skills.

I adored working on this one.  Check out the photo's again for the last one with the quarter.

I always freak out when I see those..LOL

Jay

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8107, Joey the Thug - Sheltie Rogue was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used tree bark and sand on its 40mm diameter base.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of an anthropomorphic animal I painted. This Dark Sword Miniatures DSM8083, Harrek the Otter Cleric was sculpted by Dave Summers for their Critter Kingdoms miniature range. I used a natural river rock as promontory on its 40mm diameter base. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!
