This one puzzled me for quite a while, then annoyed me for even longer. 

Gray fur almost worked, then not at all. 

I tried steel colours, then bronze, and even to make the sword look like some sort of black glassy rock... It just screamed NO at me. 

So I gave it another bath in the Pit of Regret, washed it off and gave it a coat of gray primer, then sat down and studied it....

 

Yeah, it had to be done like this.

I still have a bit of a problem with getting good pictures, but... 

The colours is MSP Shadowed Stone as base and MSP Weathered stone drybrushed on top.

The Gold is Dwarven Gold,and the blue on the headdress is Oceanic Blue, with more Weathered Stone drybrushed over to 'age' it a bit.

The eyes and the jewels in the swordhilt is Tamiya Clear Red. 

It was given a coat of matte varnish, but it's still a bit too shiny, I think. 

 

I think it should fit well at the entrance of a tomb or something.

Yeah, I could have tried with some Desert Sand colours, but... I need to experiment a bit with those colours first, and I wanted to finish that mini right then.

The Rock colours I've messed with before so I knew I could get them to work.

 

If I get another one I probably will go that way.

(It's already on the 'wanted' list in the spreadsheet I use for inventory control, with a comment on what I want to do with it)

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for.
       

       

       
       

      Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some were just one coat, like Reikland Fleshshade for the edges of shell and claws. Also uded Army Painter green ink and Nuln Oil (for mix with green for darkest part on top of shell) for shell/legs/claws, Reaper Sepia wash for in-between colors and the underside. Only paint I used was bit of black at tips of claws, and Tropical blue watered down to thickish wash for blue on claws/legs.

      Just one more for now.  I recently received a kickstarter which had decal pages for books and scrips.  They were primarily for warhammer but the author made some changes during the kickstarter to make them more system neutral.  I got them and then went looking for a mini to try them on.  I found Lor Gorna first and this was the result.  I liked the mini and i also liked the color i got on his robes and cloak!
       
      And of course his purpose, the book, came out pretty well too!
