Welcome to the Forum!

Have fun!

Keep in mind purple texts are meant as jokes.

 

This is your second mini you painted?

Really?

 

This is awesome!

Tell me you painted model kits or something like that before!

 

This is excellent work!

Thanks!

 

Not my 2nd mini.  6th or 7th?

 

And, I admit, I have a theater set design degree.  So certain painting techniques and observations aren't foreign to me.  Though I haven't painted in years.  And certainly not at this scale with such small brushes and tools.  Many youtube videos have helped get the gears turning.

This is extremely nice for an early effort.

 

That is a pretty convincing evocation of metallic paints, right there!

 

It’s always interesting to me to see how people with an arts background approach miniatures painting.

 

(My background is not dissimilar. I collected (and painted) minis from forty years ago, nearly, but gave away my collection when adulting happened. Then I got a fine arts degree and eventually came back. I remain fascinated by all the different approaches people take.)

I love this little dude! Nice color scheme and good job! Do you happen to know what model this is? (edit) after checking the tags on the top of the post I see the model number now >_<

Oh, great!  Another novice who can paint better than I do after buying a comic book on painting and a house painting brush.

 

Having whinged,  that is some impressive work.

WELCOME ABOARD! I hope your stay is a LONG & MERRY affair...especially if you continue to post such SPLENDID miniatures.

The Vertically Challenged Warrior is a BEAUTY. Brushwork, basing, & color selection are OUTSTANDING. VERY WELL DONE!

I love it. Model looks awesome. Heck, you even made the left on metal that should have been clipped off the handel look better than what most painters can do.

 

A+

 

Oh wow, I hadn’t noticed that! :lol:

 

It makes the axe look a lot more balanced, I think.

Haha!  And I even referenced a few pics of the model and didn't notice it doesn't belong.
