Qesnef, Ogre Mage and Halfling Form

Recommended Posts

WOW!

 

I love these - Very cool to see something so stylized and visually impactful - The bold highlighting isa really effective choice as it increases definition and makes these really POP!

 

Plus simple things like one corner of a rug to make the ogre mage feel like he is connected to the larger world - nice touch

 

gorgeous!

I'll never paint this well in my entire life. So jealous...

That is what I said a few years ago and still say when I see others work. Practice, ask questions and listen to other Reaper member advice. I can still remember key things people said to me that helped incredibly.

The miniatures are cool, but the brushwork, basing, & colors make them  FANTASTIC creations. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Sometimes when I run across a Show Off posting, I have to study it for a bit, to learn technique. I pulled the photos and put a monochrome filter on them -- the tonal variance is perfect, going from black to nearly white in every hue used. The hatching adds texture that just doesn't exist in the model, and tricks the eye into thinking there is more blending of color than there actually is. And the selection of colors is harmonious; you definitely have a good eye for picking what colors will work together when going from shadow to light.

 

I only wish the the images were higher resolution, so I could study them in more detail.

Thanks!

I bought a wet pallette to help with blending that I am yet to use. Although I imagine it may slow me down even more. My buddy says I have my own style and not to bother with it.

Your buddy is right.

      The City Watch. Charged with lantern and truncheon to keep the peace and vigilantly guard against threats thereunto. Again, I'm a sucker for the buckled slouch hats and the shoulder-draping collar.
       
      Midlam's Halflings again, featuring Kate Redhanded:

      more angles:
       
      ...and Clubbo Drubbins. Can't say I did such a good job on his lighting as on Kate's, but can for sure say I've done worse. 



       
      Bringing light into dark places:



       

       
      "Halt! Who goes there!"

       
      And a whole crowd of citizens ready to deal with thieves, spies, monsters, witches, or rat-men.

      Let's meet Will Chandler, Midlam's halfling candlestick-maker. (Strictly I think a candlestick maker is a silversmith or pewtersmith rather than a chandler, but I don't work for Midlam and this sculpt is too good and evocative to complain!) So much character on display. This one is an exercise in OSL, having no fewer than four light sources, and I can't pretend to have done it much justice with painting; those candle stubs are tiny. Am happy with the lighting on one or two pictures though!

      Done. Tried a new technique for me with very dark green base acrylic with the skin tones on top. I kinda like it.

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      is that true though?  why wouldnt it be huge if the base determines that?
       
      Wizkids, who does the official D&D models (in line with the models from GF9 that are also official) have a line of dragons coming, starting in dec/jan, that they said are their new gargantuan dragons and described them as properly sized or something .    
      Here's a pic of the first, the white:
