Welcome!

Good start!

If you want more depth, use a little wash on them.

They do look good for a game!


Thanks for the advice!

We hit them with a wash of pretty heavily diluted carbon grey and/or ebony flesh paints depending on the figure and section, but my technique (and my ability to place trust in the wash process) needs some work.
I'm also considering ordering a few citadel washes as nuln oil, agrax, and fleshshade keep popping up as heavily recommended.

As a beginner painter, you can get a lot of good use out of a bottle of the Agrax Earthshade and a bottle of Nuln Oil.  For a nice quick tabletop paint job I usually do a painted base coat, then Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil wash, and then some quick highlighting. I use the Agrax Earshade for warmer colored minis (Primarily browns, red, yellows, etc), and the Nuln Oil for cooler colored minis (Primarily blues, greens, greys, etc).   Fleshshade is a nice addition for skin, but not necessary to start if funds are limited.

 

You might also want to check out my Bones painting blog if you get a chance.  Lots of step by step painting articles that some beginners have found helpful: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com

I’ve got some discretionary funds and a core set (less some ghouls and goblins), darkreach, and fan favorites to paint so I think I’ll pick up all 3.

 

thanks for linking the blog, looks like a lot of well-painted minis and process walk through to glean inspiration from.

Great job, painting for tabletop is where it’s at. It’s kept me painting even as my tabletop time has dropped to zero. Dr. Faust on YouTube has some good stuff, as well as others. Just learn blending, edge highlighting, drybrushing and then practice yourself to sleep :)

 

Welcome aboard!

      Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper.
       
      Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side.
      Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      One of the others I plucked out of the Bones 4 set.  It looked fun, so I grabbed it.
       
      Battle Report!
       

       
      Wins:
      * Armor was a fun use of blues added in.  I watched Dr. Faust doing something similar to create some really cool effects.  Mine obviously not as good, but I think it was alright.
      * The skin was a big win for me.  I did it as a nice, slow build up and took my time with laying it up.  It worked great on her face.
      *  I was getting lost in the tid bits on her belt, but just used browns and then hlghlighted them up.  It actually worked out pretty well.  Better than I intended.
      *  Cape was a slight win, but not perfect.  
      *  Hair went better this time, but I'm still having a hard time pointing out where the light hights on the curved areas.  
       
      Misses:
      *  NMM on swords.  I tried it again and then failed.  Wiped it out and covered it up with metallic. 
      * Flower should have been left with orange color and white tips, but I went too far by connecting the tips across.  It lost the deail going with more white.  Should have stopped.
      * I started using purple ink to separate the plates, but it just wasn't working.  I think I need to do more blacklining and not worry about adding in colors.  
       
      Overall, she looks good.  The win here was the face and some of the highlights.
