I think you’re your own worst critic!  These look awesome.  

The Pathfinder dragon looks especially formidable.  Very well done!

White isn’t an easy colour, that’s why you don’t see many!

I agree with this!

They are great!

Well thanks y’all. A lot of folks on another forum really hated the bone color I did on the dragon. I’m not thrilled with it either but thought it would be a cool break from an all white/blue color scheme...execution wasn’t that sharp, but it does look good on the table at normal light.

I think that this is really the key...  the color scheme you picked was super challenging and not as forgiving of tabletop techniques.  It doesn't mean that your concept was bad, just that for it to look good you would have to spend more time on the shading & highlighting.  Which can be a bridge too far when you need the pieces done for a game.  (I myself am frequently guilty of coming up with cool ideas and then getting tired before I do all the work and just calling it 'done'.)  

 

I bet you learned a lot about painting white and you'll enjoy having them ready for you game.  Which is plenty good in my books!  Paint on!  ^_^

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      My 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of  craft paint
      before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain.

      I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey.

      We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
