This is so much better than my first mini. Like I told you on your other post for your 7th mini, the way you are progressing in a short time, I can't wait to see what you will be painting down the road.

 

You seem to be picking up new concepts quickly and applying them to your minis. Keep doing that! That is how we all learn and improve. Check out other people's WIPs and see how they do things. Make your own WIP and see what comments and critique you get. I guarantee you get lots of encouragement and great ideas that way!

 

Keep practicing and sharing your work!

Thanks Pochi, I'll have to try a WIP next. I think I'm going to try to completely sculpt an earth elemental next for a friend of mine, so maybe I'll try doing it for that!

Welcome!

 

Indeed a great job especially for a first!

You clearly got talent.

 

As for criticism.. the only minor thing I see ( and that could be the pics ) is the underside of the tentacles.

They might need a little more contrast.

Maybe a darker brown in the recesses between the scales.

 

 

I also like to see the base getting some love.

Flock, rubble, sand, stoneworks.

It makes a mini come to life imho.

 

But..again...this is a great job!!!

I look forward seeing more of your work!

Very good start!

 

I'll second the idea of doing something to jazz up the base a little bit.

Other than that, keep doing what you're doing, and remember to have fun!

Thanks guys.

 

Didnt have basing stuff at the time but it's definitely something I'm getting more into now.

      I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      Hellborn Troll
      from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
       
      I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).
       

       
      I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.
       

       
      It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.
       
      Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.
       

       
      Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.
       

       
      I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.
       
      I am quite happy with him so far.  
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy!

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      Here's some shots from the penultimate session of our D&D game.
       
      The party finally confronts the Sewn Sisters.
      The tiles are from "Dwarven Forge" and "Secret Weapon".  The tables, chairs, and most props are from "Mantic:Terrain Crate", with the cauldron being from an Old Glory Crones set.  
      The Scarecrow & Leomon (Half-Elf Paladin) are from "Reaper Bones".
      The rest of the party are 3D prints, from HeroForge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala.
      The Sewn Sisters are 3D prints from DarkRealms.
      Everything was hand painted by myself.
       


       
      Cradle of the Death God.
      The tiles are Dwarven Forge.
      The party are 3D prints, with designs from Hero Forge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala. (One is a Reaper Bones piece)
      The Soulmonger is a 3D print designed by Miguel Zavala.  The God That Never Was is a 3D design by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.
      Everything was painted by myself.  I also added LEDs.
