I recently finished a group of Reaper Bones miniatures. As they are so small they were a little hard to paint at some points. I'm fairly new painting miniatures so I was looking for some feedback and potentially some tips on how to improve in the future. All comments, advice, and constructive criticism is welcome.
My own main criticism with them is the highlights as I'm not 100% where/how to paint proper highlights to make a natural look without a ton of brush strokes.
The Troll, from Blood Rage board game by CMON.
Highlights attempted with dusk sunlight from upper right direction.
First attempt at painting gems (rubies amd emeralds).
This was a bad mini to paint, due to entire areas not being accesible without cutting the figure apart (i.e. behind the handle, underneath the loincloth, the feet and hands).
So last week I started in on the Reaper Learn to Paint Kit: Core Skills. got the skeleton done which turned out decently and started in on this guy. Yesterday I finished him. I ended up getting the orc stalker instead of the marauder, and I think this one must be a bit more difficult to paint as it has a lot more differing areas on him. Overall not too bad for starting out I think. the swords took a few coats of base, they were very smooth and untextured so the honed steel paint wasn't taking very well at first, and washing it didn't do much of anything. Painting eyes is going to be a challenge to learn.
