Goldar the Barbarian (now with snow and bloody axe!) - 03461 - Artist: M. Gubser

I'm a noob (about 5-6 weeks of painting) but am happy with this guy and his rusty armor!

Would love some C & C from anyone though!

He looks good!

 

A couple comments might be to just work on thinning your paints a bit to just smooth the transitions from shadow to highlight (I am still working on this myself).   I also think the rust might be a bit thick but that could be just personal preference. Here's a good video for painting rust without having to use technical paint. 

 

I would recommend watch a lot of Dr Faust videos.  Its really helped me a lot!

 

You are off to a great start though!  Keep up the good work!

 

Oh and welcome!  This is a really friendly place!  So look around and don't be afraid to ask questions.  There are many great painters around here that are always willing to help!

Thanks Internet Friend,

 

I have seen a few of those Dr Faust vids and like them--My favorite guy to watch is Tabletop Minions, especially when they have Sam Lenz as a guest painter - He's Amaaaaaaazing!

He really is a great painter but he's a brush licker so I find him extremely hard to watch.

Looks good!

I like the skin and the snow adds a nice touch.

 

As for the blood on the axe, to make blood on weapons appear more natural, use a dark red, thin it, apply with a sponge or dab it on.

That way you get patches of blood instead of a red stroke.

 

Keep up the good work!

      Statuesque Miniatures

      Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people!

      You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

      Finished up one of my first bones 4 minis.  The unnamed big brother to the bones 3 barbarian.

      He's a simple table top job, though I probably could have shaded a few details more. Like his bracelet.

       

      I used an ink wash too shade the fur of his cloak and loin cloth. It worked great except they are now both very shiny. I could tone them down with some matte sealer, bit I think I'm just going to declare them magical.

      Someone's grumpy today.

      here he is with his unfinished little brother. Little brother's weapons ate a bit mor floppy unfortunately. They'll likely take a few hot water baths to fix.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!
