DSM8006, Scottish Wildcat Warrior

Very nice, saw this one on Facebook too!  

 

So tell me, are you glad you glued the sword arm before you painted or do you think it would have been easier to paint them separately and glue together afterwards?  I'm asking partially because I did one of Dave Summer's Chihuahuas not too long ago and I glued her arm before painting but upon hindsight thought it might have been easier to paint first glue later.

You have a real flair for the Anthropomorphic Folk. The Wildcat Laddie looks WONDERFUL; i.e., OUTSTANDING brushwork, color choices, AND freehand on his kilt. VERY WELL DONE!

This is unbelievable. True art my friend....

 

The eyes, blendings/transitions on all the fur, the face included... I look at this and wouldn’t know where to start to try to do the same.

 

I didn’t even realize the tartan was freehand at first it was so natural looking. First rate, I love it!

@72moonglum, in this case, I'm glad I glued the sword arm first. It's was farely easy to reach behind the sword and paint the kilt and tail even if the model was already assembled. This way, I was able to avoid making touch ups afterwards. It's sometimes hard to match a color and shading and the glue can mess thing as well.

 

Their is a few cases I will paint the parts separately. For exemple on your Chihuahua, if you see the staff will get in the way and will prevent you from reaching the details on the robe behind, it's probably better to glue the staff after. The easy way to patch two parts that were glue after painting is probably to apply a dark liner on the "seam" after touching up the colors.

The orange and green look great together. The tartan is well done. He is very cute. They missed their chance though to make the cat a Scottish Fold!

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one.
       
      Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hi everyone, here's another 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior. The original version this time. This model was sculpted by Tre Manor.

      In pursuit of my goal, here is another Gnoll that I finished painting last night. This 77234, Boneflail female Gnoll Cleric was sculpted by Tre Manor.
      In spite of their devotion to Yeenoghu, few Gnolls have any interest in ritual and there is few clerics or shamans to be found among the savage packs. Gnolls would sometimes summon demons to fight alongside them.
