Very nice.

 

For horns, one method I use is to base coat it all dark brown, then layer on starting from the base and increasing the amount of bone white in each layer, all.the way to the tip which is pure bone white, or even dead white.

Awesome mini, and very cool paint job. I love painting fur... dry brushing is such an effective technique for it!

 

Were I you, here's what I would do with the horns, simply because they have a very interesting shape, are a focal piece for the model, and that could give you an opportunity to do some cool stuff with lighting. Place the mini under a strong overhead light, and note what parts of the horns are in shadow and which ones are highlighted. Start taking a thinned but darkened version of your bone color and start to apply it in those areas, and see if you like the gradations. Then, add texture!  Thin, subtle paralell bars could be cool if you're going for more of the african kudu look; this would also be cool:

Good luck!

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?

      Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple,  classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
       
      I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.

      Every fiendish army needs tiny minions to throw through the meat grinders.  Today I've got some assorted imps and quasits (the demonic counterpart to imps for you non-D&D folk).
       
      First up,
      The Quasits

      These fun little guys are the grunts of the demonic legions.  The front two are Quasits from the Nolzur's Unpainted set "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719.  The back three are Reaper Bones Hordlings (77335).
       
      More Below the Spoiler:
       
      And up next,
      The Imps

      These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563

      Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys.
      What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)
