Awesome paintjob again!

I love the skintone and those weapons are top notch!

 

Great dark armor!

 

Regarding your question I would define that as aged bronze.

Groovy, thanks, I was going for some kind of brass or bronze, just didn't want it to appear as gold, as I didn't think this green guy would have such nice stuff.  I know the metals I did paint look too clean, but I get a bit concerned about  dirtying my metals..

I'd also say bronze, although sometimes I say copper when I mean bronze because some copper paints are more bronze than copper.  Except in Mad Max, where The Bronze and Coppers are the same thing. 

 

Anyway, you did a heck of a great job on him!

Thank you Master Buglips, very much appreciate it!  And as long as you didn't say gold I'm okay with any type of less precious precious metal!.

Excellent work, and the NMMs in question definitely do not read gold, which is what you were after, so win!

 

Thanks much! Now I just need to dirty my silvers.....

And the metal colors in question do not look like gold to me.

Thank you baby Jesus!  At least that I didn't mess up overly..  Metal is just for me the hardest feature of painting, that and OSL, which quite honestly I haven't even tried yet.

Nice. Cool sculpt and I like the skin tone you went with. 

 

....and I would call it oxidized copper!::D:

Thanks very much and thanks for the color confirmation.

 

I've always envisioned half-orcs as kind of half-green, or light green. Probably back from that first Orc's Lair Grenadier box where the cover showed some green and angry orcses...

      Bones 4 core set #20.  Could not find a release # for him yet.  I took this guy and a few of his pals to Reapercon to work on in my spare time (ha!) and got him base coated using some of the new Pathfnder paint set.  I couldn't help but notice the chickens and the look of terror on his face, thus the name.   Finished him with a basic drybrush and wash for table top play.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
       
      Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!
