Wanted to see how the WizKids preprimed figs were, I was going to use it unpainted since it was plastic but also need to kill time between my other figs drying, so I gave it a shot.  Came out fine for my tabletop game.  Will try some of the hordes of reaper bones I’ve stockpiled from the kickstarters.  I’ve always been concerned about the paint flaking from pieces bending

I like the lighter brown to highlight the tie straps. Dry brushing a lighter shade of brown on the edges of the planks next time you happening to be using brown , might make the wood more life like.  Great job for just killing time.  

 

I'm new at this forum stuff.  Please let me know if I should have kept my suggestion to myself.  I didn't mean it as an insult.  

If I sound like a mom, check out my name.

Looks great.  I haven't worked with much of the pre-primed Wizkids stuff, but I can tell you that paint sticks really well to Bones, even when they have bendy parts. 

Thanks, I have a bunch of bones minions I just keep in a bag and throw on the table for quick encounters. I didn’t have giants and demons I should paint :)

      It has been a dark time for the Galactic Empire.
      Strong meta for the other factions have lead to few victories,
      and the faith of many Imperial commanders had been tested.
      But now, when all seemed lost, and new RRG has emerged. 
      Unit costs have decreased.
      Changes have breathed new life into nearly abandoned Imperial troops. 
      And leading the way, mighty Lord Vader's Sith training has made him even more powerful and devastating. 
      Now is the time, for the Empire to strike back!!
       
      So, a new year, and a new Star Wars Legion painting WIP.
      Last year started strong but then I almost completely stopped painting for quite a while. Instead I focused on getting a bunch of units assembled, as I was playing fairly regularly. My back going to crap probably had some impact on my painting too, all those meds aren't helping with my focus or energy levels.
      Regardless, I've finally felt like painting again the last week or so.  So I'm going to go with it and hope to settle in to a schedule where I'm getting a few hours of painting in a week.
      My goals for this year are to get back to painting Empire forces, but also to finish up painting my CIS army.
      For the CIS I still have to paint two more units of B1s, and base them and the 2 units I've just finished up in the old WIP.
      Then there are 3 units of STAPs, 3 units of Droidekas. 3 Spider Droids.  3 boxes of Magnaguards.  3 boxes of Bx commandos.  A bunch of commanders and specialists.  Oh, and 2 snail tanks, and two AATs.......so a bit...also 1 more unit of B2s if they ever come in.
      But, as soon as I get through the 2 units of B1s (they take up too much room on my desk to work on anything else at the same time) I'll start moving in some Imperial units to mix it up.  And get back to painting white......

      As you can see from the title, I'm a noob playing around with layering. Or glazing? I'm not sure about the difference, in the tutorial videos I watched, both techniques come down to painting diluted paints over a base coat.
       

       
      I've painted the armor with a black-and-silver mix, then painted over with diluted silver where I imagine the light hits. I'm happy with the effect. I feel like I've messed up the face. I layered Vallejo Paint Bronze Fleshtone (over that color + white) to simulate shade from the helmet, and tried to pain the eyes gold because she's depicted with glowing eyes in the official artwork. I think I should just have gone for skin-wash... I hope I can salvage it. I also see now that I haven't been thorough with removing the mold lines and messed up the gold detail somewhat.
       
      I'm a bit unsure about what to do with the hair and, well, whatever you call this piece of clothing.
       

       
      I painted shades on the lower part of the hair, in the areas where multiple layers of cloth overlap and on the right where the wing is above it. I just glazed over with a red + black mix. I'm kind of going back and forth thinking that it looks too dark and smudgy, and (especially on the front) not dark enough. I'm also unsure if I should add highlights or shades on the wavy part. It's relatively flat, and most tutorials I've seen deal with robes that have very deep folds.
       
      I definitely want to add highlights to the hair, but I don't know what color. Mixing red and white would give pink, and that doesn't seem right. I tried glazing with orange, but wasn't happy with the result, so I glazed over with red again. It's still slightly visible.
       
      Some other minor detail, I've tried to paint the shadow of the body on the base of the wings. Not sure I like it, but you only see it when you go looking for it anyway...

       
      One more picture that I took, can't really think of any commentary.

       
      Any advice on layering or any other things is very welcome!

      Been awhile since I shared something here.

      Here's a night hag I painted up a few months back.

       
      More Photos below the Spoiler
       
      I'd love to see some of your favorite examples of OSL so feel free to drop them below!

      Also, what's your favorite D&D hag, or favorite witch from pop culture.
      - I guess they're not technically hags, but I love the Fates from Disney's Hercules.  They always creeped me out and I love running witches like them.

      Being the timid fellow that I am, I wanted to be fairly sure that I had a chance of finishing a Minivember challenge before I announced it publicly. 
       
      I enter miniatures into my painting log when the final basing and varnish coat are complete, and the “whatever” is ready for play.  I’ve recently resolved to relax and not worry too much about where the Muse(s) lead, as long as I’m getting something done.  So all plans are subject to change.  That said, I’ve had two things on my mind recently.  
       
      The first is that I was in a Rangers of Shadowdeep game at Barrage, our local miniatures gaming convention, back in September, and decided that it was time to try to get it on the table.  For fun, I decided that I would fill out my small (1/72) plastic fantasy collection for this.  I looked over the book, and found this was what was called for:
       

       
      I got a good start on this on a business trip last month.  I am also working toward “finishing” the army lists I’ve drawn up for my Portable Fantasy campaign:
       

       
      But exactly what I’m going to end up painting is a bit unpredictable.
       

       
      As posted in the November Speed/Army/Tabletop  goals thread, I’ve also got some vintage Broadsword Miniatures Rangers to round out a unit, and the much-deferred Goblin Carolers for my Winterfeast village.  There are also orcs for the campaign mass battle, some human cavalry, some historical Bronze Age Nubians and some additional giant war trolls.
       
      I’ve already finished a couple of medieval(oid) human horse archers. (English and other mounted bowmen did not generally shoot from horseback, so these guys, Strelets plastics I’ve had sitting around since 2005 or so, are probably more at home in a fantasy setting anyway.)
       

       
      I also finished the zombies (plus a couple of smaller Reraper Bones 5 monsters):
       

       

       
      These were knocked out pretty rapidly with washes and drybrushing, with a deliberate choice to keep them subdued and semi-monochromatic.  I doubt zombies spend much time on hygiene…
       
      For the trolls needed for Rangers, I had planned to use the Bones 1 (SKU 77159) Ghast.  As a 1/72 scale figure, they end up being 8 or so feet tall, so look more to me like something a human might stand a chance of fighting than something like a Dark Alliance 12 foot tall War Troll.  But, yesterday was apparently Trollfest, and I finished up the three troll/ghasts, a Dark Alliance War troll, and a Caesar Miniatures “something” from their currently-out-of-production “Adventurers” set.  They are shown here with a Strelets medieval city militiaman from last month, for scale:
       

       

       
      That’s 18 figures down, so at least 12 to go.  I’m on vacation with no particular plans this week, and I’m also off the week of Thanksgiving, so that should be achievable.
