Mini Dungeon Master
Citadel has just released (to pre-order - they're coming out next week) a new line of Contrast paints which behave rather differently than conventional minis paints in a number of respects.
I recently got a chance to play around with them at my local Warhammer store, and wrote down some initial impressions.
Has anyone else gotten a chance to mess around with these, and if so, what was your thoughts on them?
(my favorite result down below)
This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
"Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.
A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.
This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.

Kickstarter exclusive model
Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all.
They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.
Ingrid Deathseeker is basically your female beardless Trollslayer.
I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her.

From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag:
A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry.
The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow.
Base and done.
Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader.
"Who be this tender morsel? Come to Meg, juicy boy! What a fine fat boy you are!"
