Cyr didn't nitpick! A treasure chest.

So I decided to at least try to not nitpick something. This is the fastest I have ever painted an item. It took prpbably 30mins - 1hr, mostly due to paint drying before a wash. Paint was determined by "fits purpose and is in reach without seeking". 

 

Not my best by far, but it is an achievement for me to NOT nitpick things!

'Struth that this is better than my current "best effort" skill level.

You can do it GEM! 

 

This was base coats and sloppy washes :poke:

 

Dice ring is one I got at comiccon about 4 years ago. Always have it on. Never know when I'll need to roll. Also makes great twiddling.

That's some fine booty right there. ::D:

 

I got the same pack of chests, I can only hope that mine turn out as well.

 

Half went to Sir Cyr, and I got the others. They're... interesting. I find it odd that the treasure is in its own weird little square with a big gap around the edges. Serves the purpose of loot well for sure though.

I thought it was a bit odd as well. While I'm not really a fan of that (the one gap that the primer didn't obliterate), I still think they're quite useful for dungeon dressing. I think I'm going to try to vary the types of coins in the chest, and I see that there's a couple of gems in there as well.

The other open chest does have some gems in it. I don't think this one does. The other also has a skull. Sir Cyr gets that one though. If I wasn't testing myself on lack of nitpicking, I would have been painting each individual coin with different metals and possibly trying to make faces on them :wacko:

I think my players are going to get suspicious by me throwing a painted treasure chest at them. They'll think it is a trap, even if it isn't. I might just make the lid snap on their fingers to spite them.

I laughed out loud at this! :lol:

 

Great painting too btw.

      I started Rimeblast a couple weeks ago.  She's the first thing I've painted in some time.  It won't be anything special (I've got to learn how to up my game one of these days), but it's a start.
       
      This won't be a real in-depth thread, just the "end of the night" update after a painting session.
       

       
      Well, that was where I started.  I knew that the "white" dragon wouldn't be white.  It's not the way things are in the world where Rimeblast dwells.  But, this is the Ocean Colors triad (specifically Deep Ocean), which isn't just blue enough.  
       
      So, after a couple weeks of unhappy-back-of-the-mind pondering I pull out the paints again.  This is where I am now.
       

       
      This is better.  This is Sky Blue with little bits of Deep Ocean peaking through.  I'm "OK" with that.  It gives some variation so she's not (quite) all the same shade.  I'm thinking I'm going to take a heavy drybrush of Frosty Blue, and then a lighter drybrush of Ghost White, or even Sparkling Snow, to finish the scales. 
       
      The scutes (belly scales) have received a coat of Foggy Grey which is, I've discovered, very close to the shade of Vallejo grey primer already on it.  I'll likely be using Pure White and Sparkling Snow to finish those up--assuming I don't go back and redo them in Rainy Grey.  I'm afraid the countershading will be a little too "bright" if I leave them at "Foggy."
       
      I'm still not sure where I'm going to take the spinal ridge, crest, and wings.  The bones/supports in the wings bug me a bit.  I keep thinking that there should only be three or four support "fingers" (like a bat), and there a lot more there.  Pardon me while I over-analyze fantasy creature morphology.  
       
      Thanks for dropping by!

      After winning a Wizkids Half-Orc Paladin as part of a larger eBay auction I decided to convert it into something else. The scale of the head seemed too small so I replaced that. And the sword did not look quite right so I replaced that. Then whilst painting I got the idea to give it that Brotherhood of Steel rusty red look and suddenly I saw a Medieval Fantasy version of Paladin Danse from Fallout 4. 
       
      However, I am not sure others will see the same resemblance I do.

      Hello everyone, here’s the second Wizkids character model I painted for one of the players in my DnD group. I painted the armor using the NMM technique and added blood effect (not hers). This is a Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures 73542, Half-Orc female Fighter produced by Wizards of the Coast. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Happy International Hobby Day!

      Hello everyone, here’s the first Wizkids character model I painted for one of the players in my DnD group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. It was a fast paint job since he's eventually going to be moved around on the gaming table. This 72618, Human Wizard is a Wizkids D&D Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures. Have a great day. (it is missing the spell effect piece. I will paint it later).

      This was just a little project I wanted to give a try to.  I am still getting used to bones and wizkids plastics and this looked sort of fun.  I decided on blue because it looked sort of Fey and made the mini look shadowy 
       
      Lots of mold lines on this one!  There're everywhere and not in the best of locations, like right across the face.  Still I could have done better contrast here but one not sure how something that is supposed to walk in shadows!
       
      Anyway, enjoy!
