It’s a table top figure for our weekly game. The monochromatic nature of the armor was hard on the eyes and made me want to rush a little.  Fun to paint.  Slowly getting better brush control.  Need more practice with layering and highlighting.  Advice and comments welcome ... of course I notice a smudge on the back of the right foot as soon as I posted

Very good! You could add a little diluted black wash or the new armor wash. It would shade the recesses and thus accentuate the armor and give it more realism by investing near to no effort at all.

His special attack is blinding the enemy with his shiny armor! He looks very nice. The blue you chose is pretty and contrasts nicely with the emblem.

Exactly what I was going to recommend.

 

Good work!

      I know I haven't posted in a while, but I still check in daily on the friendliest mini-painting forum on the web!  Still lurking here while pursuing my obsession with OSL.

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      Seemingly unrelated to each other, but I swear all these minis were drying from the sealer by 11:23pm on 12/31/2020.

      Here are....Lidless Eye's Last Minis of 2020!

      A Winter Wizard from Reaper Miniatures oh wait it's Santa, isn't it?
       

       
       
      To back him up, some friendly Reindeer to back him up.

      Wait, I'm being informed they're actually Grashrak's Despoilers from Warhammer: Underworlds


       
       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
      The last bit of their native habitat, a fallen tree (3D print from The Lost Adventures)


       
      A creepy Scarecrow Puppet familiar from Reaper Miniatures.


      Arik Axereaver, Barbarian, acquired as a bonus along with the Father Christmas.  His head seems to reflect everything in the lightbox.



      And doing what we all should from the last year, the Fleeing Halfling from Warploque Miniatures.  He must know Johann.

      So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things.  I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.  
       
      Here she is:
       

       
      Always thought she was a cute little figure.  The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice.  But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!
