Excellent work, and hooray for both diversity and cultists! :;,;: I like that jade thurible. 

Welcome! I look forward to seeing the rest of the Brothers of the Crypt.

Welcome to the forums! Great first post!

 

Hurray for purple! I like the dark green bottle too and the scroll is well done. I like the dark skin as well. Nice job!

Great work on this necromancer. Welcome to the forum. I also like the dark purple color you selected. As for a constructive advice I recommend adding highlights on the coat folds. You can blend beige or yellow color with the purple to create a paler tone and complete the effect with a thin highlight line on the upper ledge of the folds and top of the cap.

Thanks Metalchaos! I started following you so this is pretty tight getting advice from an awesome painter.

 

can I confirm what you think on this: should I focus on highlighting all folds (bottom and body) or just one of these two points. I certainly don’t want to over do it!

 

My paints and figs are at a friends place (I paint when we hang out so I leave them there). This weekend I will try that out and add the pics on how it turned out.

You can highlight the fold that are mostly exposed to the figurative light. If you want that light to be an ambient light, like the moon or the sun the folds on the upper parts of the model should have a paler highlight then the ones under the sleeves. You need to imagine the location from where the light will be coming from and work from there. If the light is coming from a lantern the model is wielding there will be more light around the lantern and non at the back of the model, where you can’t see the lantern.

 

You can highlight the folds with various successive tone from the darkest to the palest. One tone is ok, three tones is much better and will be ok on most models. You can use up to five different tones on larger surfaces. By adding more or less beige to your purple color you will get these various tones.

 

All this process is not easy to explain with words. You may want to watch some Youtube videos about this topic. I've found a couple of interesting ones when I looked for "miniature painting highlight". I hope it will help you a little, have fun and show us you work when you're done.

      Hi,
       
      after a few years of not painting, the corona virus made me pick up the brushes again.
       
      Every time I start a new phase of my erratic painting schedule there is a little ritual: I try to paint Laurana from the old LTPK2, struggle with her scroll, strip the paint off, try again and then give up to paint something else.
       
      The instructions tell me to paint the scroll in white, make a black wash and then dry brush in white and voila, the writing on the scroll will magicly appear.
       
      Except that it doesn't, it just becomes a complete mess.
       
      What am I doing wrong? What could I do instead?
       
      My freehand skills are nonexistent,  so the obvious solution (and the one I see done very often on this mini) doesn't work for me. Leaving the scroll blank, because "she just cast the spell and it has disappeared" feels like cheating.  
      I would be really glad for some hints to point me in the right direction.
       
      Thanks for your help!

      Subtitle: Whaaaat!?  Pendrake painted something?
       
       This was an exercise in improvisation. People like to use the google hangouts to have painting sessions. But, all my painting stuff normally lives in the next room away from the computational machine. But some of it had gotten waylaid and dropped off in the wrong room so I decided to see if I could manage something. @knarthex was in the hangouts painting tiny CamelFlag patterns on tiny NATO troopers at the same time. 
       

      Here is Galladorn getting a bath in Simple Green diluted with water. The plastic bag is the type I use mostly for sorting Miniatures. File this under: how to mess with gooey-green cleaners and stuff near expensive equipment. 
       
      Next he got buried in paper towels to dry off.

      I've had Ragnaros (or Raggers, as I like to think of him) for almost a year. I was stuck on what colours to use for ages. Red and brass, my first thought, are a bit too Khorne-y for my liking, and I didn't want to do him in the classic plate mail colours. So I settled for a pretty mute palette: Vallejo Neutral Grey, a blue/grey sample from Reaper, and Army Painter Dark Tone, Plate Mail Metal and Rough Iron. I did the eyes with Vallejo Red to add some colour.
       
      I thought about doing something flashy with his sword and shield, but then figured that Raggers isn't the type to bugger about with flaming swords and shields made of human skin. I also wonder how easy it would be to outrun him seeing as he's wearing about three tons of armour. The figure itself is so heavy you could put it in a sock and use it to mug people.
       
      Raggers isn't based yet; after slathering on what felt like the fourth gallon of Dark Tone to finish him off I'm taking a break.
       
      As always, comments, criticisms and cash are welcome.

      Some of you are old enough to remember the old Dungeons and Dragons toy line from way back when. In that toy line, they featured an evil fighter named Warduke. He also made one appearance in the cartoon, and was given stats (more than once) for use in the pencil and paper RPG.
       
      I have decided to make/convert a copy of him for myself.
       
      This is who I'm talking about for those that don't know, or remember:

       
       

       
       
      He got brought back for 3.0 or 3.5 edition D&D, too:
       

       

       
      Now, that's some pretty cool artwork, and my apologies to Mr. Reynolds, but it's wrong. Warduke is LEFT handed.
      See?

       
       
      Anyway, now that we all know who I'm talking about, I chose the Bones version of Goldar : http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/goldar/latest/77047 
      to use as the base for this project.
       
      And this is what I've gotten done so far:
       

       
      Hand removed for a weapon swap, left arm armor sculpted with GS, started reshaping the left boot.
