I'm not a fan of the particular look of this line of figures, but they are exquisitly painted.  Great job!

Yeah, this. GW's been over designed for a while now (new not-dwarfs are the worst), but I'm always a fan of @odinsgrandson's paint jobs. No disappointment here. They make up for the ridiculous sculpts.

I totally get that.

 

Honestly, I think that GW's move towards over the top heavy metal stylings has been motivated by the industry.

 

I mean, back in the day, there were really only a couple of styles to minis- more heroic covered Heartbreaker, GW etc, while less heroic covered Ral Partha and Grenedier etc.  

 

But with Kickstarter, we not only got a huge influx of minis that we will never have time enough to paint, we've also seen a huge growth in styles of minis each exaggerating different aspects- there's Privateer Press' love for the fiddly bits, there's Infinity's sleek body armor, B-Sieged exaggerates minis in one way, and Wyrd exaggerates the opposite features, and Relic Knights has everything looking cell shaded.  And that's not to mention True Scale minis from Dark Sword, the Adonis with oversized weapons from Kingdom Death and Chibis that range from the goofy caricatures of Arcadia Quest to the 'cute but badass' minis from Sodapop.

 

Granny Wendy needed to go somewhere to make her minis seem distinct in this market.- her older style could hardly be distinguished from Dark Age (who are now much more true scale, but kept the Grimdark feel).  She always had a little bit of a Gwar thing going on, but now she's working to ride the line between super awesome and super cheesy- and she often falls over the wrong end.

 

Personally- I can love an over the top mini as well as a more subtle mini.  The Fireslayers don't do it for me, but I rather like the steampunk squats that they've introduced into AoS.

Fun fact, Gwar actually played WHFB around edition 4. I had a friend who met them after a show in our teens and said they had a game set up.

As usual, I love your color set up and execution. Great work.

 

Out of curiosity, what are your preferred colors for that bright, shiny armor?

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it.
       
      Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
