Felt like something different last night and started putting paint on this guy. Gave him a snowy owl and polar bear pelt

Nice!  I'm curious about the grey you used for the stone parts of the figure: Is it just a trick of the light, or is the grey slightly blue-tinted?  (It reminds me of a "denim" paint I've been using for dungeons, that has an ever-so-slight shift toward blue, and this especially shows up when I take photos, but to the naked eye it still registers as "grey.")  Also, I like the polar bear / snowy owl angle.  I tend to imagine dwarves as being more at home in farther-north, snowy places, so it just seems natural to me.  :)

It's been coated in Blue LIner, with 29832 Concrete grey layered over top of it =) a few layers, because it was rather thin out of the bottle

Theunderlying blue liner could be giving it the blue tint you are seeing

You've been on a roll. It look a great so far. Concrete grey has a blue undertone to it straight out the bottle. I like the new bones mountain stone quite a bit for those looking for less blue grey.

oh it does? guess that helps the blue then xD

 

he should be fun, i plan to try and do a really good paint job on him ( i usually don't try for good paint jobs on humanoid figures)

      Sandra Garrity makes some of my favorite Dwarves, and the detail on this one stood out. It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there are some Norse Futhark runes on the blade of the sword in blue that only appear if I rotate the figure 45% left or right. Also, I love dwarves in green.

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.


      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.


      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      Hey, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I haven't been very active on here for a while, but I've been painting. I figured that I'd start putting up my backlog of models. I love Dwarves, and this was a really cool model to paint. I'm particularly happy with the NMM, but if I were to change one thing, I would probably alter the tone of the hair and beard a bit so that it doesn't so closely match the armor.
