Turned out pretty nice. Sometimes the quick diversionary paint jobs can be most satisfying. I can picture this guy showing up in a Mad Max movie though. 

 

I think it's mainly because I don't care so much about the model. Since I don't play with mine I only buy models that I find interesting or pretty. However that leads to me not wanting to screw up and wanting to make the paint job "worthy of the model". Self induced pressure blabla. Painting some random dude I didn't expect makes it easier.

I love him! Executioner by day, Chippendale dancer by night!

 

Thank you! Haha he does look like that could be a fitting second occupation xD.

I think you did a phenomenal job.  Your tabletop is my current idea of "display worthy".  I think it came out exceptionally well

I feel the same way as you.  Since I don't play with 99% of mine (i did finally paint one as my PC in my current Pathfinder game), I seek "perfection" and i too wish to make my paint jobs "worthy" of the model.  Especially the metal ones I bought recently. I have one that I primed, started and was instantly disgusted with and stripped it because the results were not matching the vision I had in my head. Poor Ishara Snowfinch sits primed and waiting for me to feel confident enough to paint.

Very nice. Cool skintones

 

Thank you! I still haven't mastered a good layering technique but I'm trying my best to improve. Lighter skin tones are definitely still a struggle.

I pretty much only paint metal below 40mm because my skill isn't high enough to make up for the loss of detail. I need crisp details to guide me. But I do see the appeal for people that play with their minis. My big models are mostly bones because the loss of detail is not as bad. I have a Halloween Sophie that I probably painted and stripped 4 times now xD I do find that at the end if I don't care so much about the model it turns out at least okay. With this bones guy I can live with that.

Great job! I actually like this mini a lot, it has that 80's fantasy movie (Conan, Beast master) look to it lol.

 

He does! With a blonde Bob he could totally pose as he-man xD

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
