Frogmen! Squog Shaman [77269] and Warriors [77268]

These guys look awesome! I love the choice of colors. You have the basics down, which is a good solid base coat. My only criticism is the shading is relatively flat, you might want to exercise some of those washing and layering techniques you learned in the LTPK. Welcome to the forum!

 

I had a similar route into miniature painting. It was something I REALLY wanted to try as a kid when I saw minis in my favorite gaming store. I at least got as far as talking my dad into getting me some minis. I tried it out, but I was not very good at it, and enamel paints are the worst. But grabbing a LTPK as an adult was a great decision. I hope you have as much fun with it as I've had.

Pragma, you didn't enjoy the fumes of the thinner/cleaner? Heh. I enjoyed the enamels but have zero interest in going back. 30mins of shaking per bottle per day? NOOOOOPE. 

 

Trappleton, I love your frog guys. They're clean and have a ton of character. Yes, highlighting and shading would help, but as is, they are nothing to be ashamed of. Seriously, I think they're fantastic. I am also partial to frogs. 

 

Welcome to the forums, and happy painting!

Thinner? What is this magical sorcery you call thinning paints? That stuff is just for cleaning the brushes. And I'm feeling a little woozy just thinking about it.

Aren't they great?  Welcome to the hobby.  You did a nice, bright, clean job evoking tropical tree frogs.

 

I love those teeth even if anatomically they don't quite make sense.

 

Here are a few other people's takes on them:

Thanks, everyone! It's great to see those other takes on them, too.

 

I know what you mean about shading and highlights, too. I think the LTPK gave me a good handle on how to shade and highlight cloth, but I can use some practice on smoother gradients, like skin.

They look pretty good!!!

 

Welcome to the Forum, and have fun!!!

 

If you like Amphibians, Reptiles and Dinosaurs, look at my Lost World Project.

Maybe you'll get some inspiration to paint more!!!!

 

Looking forward to see more of your work.

 

I recommend browsing the forum, make a WIP so people will give advice and help when needed.

Look at Youtube videos ( search for painting fantasy miniatures)

 

If someone on the Forum posts in purple, it is meant as a joke.

 

Keep painting!

Welcome on board! Great colours and very neat paint job.. 

 

And as already mentioned its time for you to journey into the amazing world of washes (or shades if you are using Citadel paints).

 

Keep at it and enjoy! (.. and come here to show off)

      Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
       
      So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
       
      The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords.  I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
       
      So here she is:

       
      In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use.  I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work.  Such is the curse of the painter....
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure.  One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before.  She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off.  No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.

      Quick and easy speedpaint. Thanks for looking!

      In my quest to paint up every race class combination, I tackled this fun mini from Oathsworn Miniatures.  One bad thing about pre-painting dragonborn is that they have unique powers based on their dragon color, so how likely is it that someone want to pick this mini in blue for the character?  Oh well, another one down!

      Just a water frog peddling his water crop.  Agents of M.E.O.W. beware!
       
      anyways, this mini just makes me smile.  Makes me think of a grippli from an old campaign.  I cant help but imagine that after saving the world, the tired frog put down roots and started peddling trinkets and goodies to the good people of the swamp.  I do like the way this came out, its simple but even the base just seemed to work.  hope you enjoy him too.
