Thanks guys!  When I did him I kind of wanted that vibe that you were maybe looking at him as he was actually in the water.  Not sure how well that could have come across, but I did what I could. I think maybe the staff of his spear looks a little out of place.  I started out with Creamy ivory and then did very watered down washes of different sea blues, some purple and greys.

As I've said on Facebook, the color palette is great, and I like his chainmail throw over...gotta show off those sweet guns!

Ah, that was you? Didn't know! Thanks again for the kind words Lidless Eye!

 

 

No, wait, that was just my bodyguard...darn, my cover's blown!

Very nicely done; the colors you use are very fitting for an aquatic theme.

 

Bravo!

Thanks! This color scheme has me wanting to do more aquatic/nautical thing and I think I have the perfect candidate for more water themes. The only thing is being that they are in water, I have to put them on bases and sculpt some water.

      This is the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Back in the 90s a product of FanPro and nowadays casted by Ral Partha.
      My Kids used this model a lot, so I decided to Paint this next.

      His Mount seemed to be a little small and didnt fit to a grandmaster of a Order of knights. So I Made a Base which should impose a little Hill on the battlefield.

      Good morning Reaperniks!
       
      So I've had this mini painted already about a week, but here in Omaha, it's been mostly kind of cloudy and rainy, so wasn't able to get a decent picture until this morning.
       
      This is Merlyon the Sorcerer, formerly of Thunderbolt Mountain and now being released by Ral Partha Legacy. Pretty fun figure to paint, and it's more akin to that 25 mm of yore:
       

       
      I still have a few more from this range I want to get around to painting. This one also had the eyeholes poked into the eyes, but they worked out this time pretty simply.
      Eyeholes in the owl too!
       
      Anyhoos, please enjoy responsibly!

      Took a shot at the ol OSL. 
       
      This model is from my youth that I'd always been afraid to paint because i didn't want to mess it up.  Years later, now I feel like my skills are better and it was worth a shot.  Not only did I take a shot, I did it with a real challenge applied to it.  I was either going to mess it up - or REALLY mess it up.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using the colors red and purple seem very wizardly.  Felt like a strong combo and happy with it.
      *  The OSL I did was using a dry brush and sweeping it from the main source and only moving in that direction.  
      *  After the initial area had been 'zoned' I went in and brought up the colors further.  I had a difficult time identifying what would be lit or not.
       
      Misses:
      *  The highlight on the face is way too much.  I wanted a light cast to it, but Iwasn't thinking like sitting in front of the sun.  Help.
      *  What colors to use for bringing up a light source?  I was thinking some kind of fire getting cast away.  I went Orange, Yellow, White, but only hitting white up close and fading to deeper colors farther from the source.
      *  The shading in the cape and undercape - I didn't do anything but feel it does need something.  Does it look strange without it?
       
      If I were to base this one, I'm wondering how I can really knock this light effect out on the base, too.  I may end up just leaving this as is and thinking fondly of it as a first attempt at OSL.  I also think having taken a challenge piece from my childhood and honoring it with something fun to do in my adulthood felt...redeeming.

      Presenting Tirinha Fallowheart, a Dreadmere faction mini made by Reaper.
       
      Didn't put much effort into this one, it's a nice mini but I think mine is a bit miscast (her details are a little soft and mushy in places).

      Presenting Lysette, a mage from the Bones USA line by Reaper.
       
      Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things.
      Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand.
