Like this a LOT, the simple glint on all the metal surfaces is very effective.

You are really good at highlight and shadow location placement! That's the toughest part of NMM to me right now. 

 

C&C.... he needs eyebrows :poke:

I actively find ways to NOT paint eyebrows hehehe.

I cannot recall what this reminds me of, but you definitely nailed it. Great!

 

 

Thanks!! I imagine him as a spoke person for a shampoo company in a fantasy realm.

Formidable! Love the flowing cape, looks like silk or satin. How do you get that effect?

 

I used gory red (09278) as base and a mix of gory red and black from Vallejo model colour as shadow. Highlights were gory red with white (reaper HD 29842). at this stage, things would look very pink.  I then glaze the whole thing with very thin layers of gory red and fresh blood (09279) to tie everything together and restore the redness.

Truly fascinating! NMM is perfect and the satin look of the cape is uncanny. Well done!

 

Thank you for such kind words.

Amazing work. I'm loving the blends for the red on the front; smooth and clean. For the back side, the reds could use some shading in those curves.

Very nice!  Love all that great NMM!

 

Don't be afraid to take the NMM up to Pure White (or very close), though for that extra glinty-ness!

 

Thanks for the advice. FYI, it was your red NMM vampire video that set me on the path of NMM.

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!
