Looking good! More adventurers should be prepared with strings of sausages. Keep up the good work!

 

Thank you! And you've right! Sausages should be a must for every adventurer, or walker, or everyone ::D:

He looks pretty good.

The only minor thing I would say is his hair, blond hair isn't that yellow.

You could use a brown and an ivory cream colour to create a blond hair that looks a bit more natural.

Thank you. Yes, I know that blond hair isn't that yellow. The color is a brownyellow and I hoped that it will be not so bright yellow like it really is. For the future I'll take a different color but for now Sam had to live with this. The color will grow out and then he'll get another ::D:

Hey, what happened? I see you have painted actually your very first transitions....can`t believe it, but it looks good. Great, keep up this energy and the good flow. I like both and as said: Highlights become better, because they are not as extreme bright than before and the better shading (than ususal) caused the first transitions. Still rough, but hey, it is a beginning. Good job!::D:

Thank you both. I step forward to do a little bit experiment. Learning by doing. I'm really satisfied with the result. And don't forget: on the pictures the highlights are really rough, here you can see every single brush stroke, unfortunatly ::(: In real the minis are more smaller and if I don't look with a magnifying glass, they look pretty good ::D:

      Finished this a little while ago, but it wasn't until just recently where I was able to get it into an area that's large enough, and has even enough lighting (whoo, b-day gift of a 24" cube light box and lights!)
       
      This is the terrain element that was included in the Warhammer 40,000 Battle for Macraggae boxed starter set.

      I realize it's not the weekend, but the week was quite busy and I'm happy to have got any of this done at all.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      This little wizard's focus for me was going to be brighter colors and trying to do skin and hair better.  I think it came out pretty well.
       
      Wins:
      *  The base color of red tone and highlighting upward to flesh tone seems to be a good mix.  
      *  Keeping to adjacent colors on the color wheel made for a pleasing, eye-catching combo.  I have to say using the reds, oranges, and browns was pretty fun.
      *  I did as much highlighting and avoiding washes as I could.  This has been my practice over the last number of models I've done.  I don't get how the videos show people just splashing it on for amazing results.  I don't get it, can't seem to do it the same, so I resort to taking more time on starting dark and going light.  Much like Dr. Faust's painting videos.  I've learned much from watching him.
      *  Mixing paints is getting better.  I used like colors to lighten and highlight and I'm getting a better balance and understanding of how they may look really different wet, but getting to know how they dry and differs greatly.  
      *  The eyes worked better going in order of black first, white second, black third.  I was doing a white, black, white and it made the eyes look weird.  @Inarah pushed me to try something different and it's been working better.  
      *  The brown hair with little highlights came out good and I'm trying to be very light in my touch to get subtle look versus stark.  Win!
       
      Misses: 
      *  The staff is okay.  I tried to give it like some kind of weathered look or cool effect at the end, but it just didn't sing like I had hoped.
      *  On the back of his cape, there's a part that I tried shading inf that just didn't look believable to the eye.  I tried to hit it a few times to catch the light and how to lighten the edgest, but it was lost on me.  Fail.
      *The skin on his hand held out has a funny look to it up close.  I tried to bring out some of pads of his fingers and palm, but it doesn't look as good as I had hoped.
       
      Overall it's another win, and I'm happy with the results.

      Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games.

      Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it.
       
      Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hello there!
      Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive!
       
      Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed.
       
      This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project thread might help.
      I've made a spreadsheet, ran a number generator and picked the first ten candidates.
       
       
       
      Laserian - An evil Knight and Balmonoth - Insidous Rat-man.
       

       
      The Champion - Wandering Undead Warrior (He's not actually an Underworlds mini, he's one of only two Games Workshop resin minis I brought that were cast well enough to keep, but he fits in the skeleton faction.) and One-Eyed Thabron - Orc Mercenary.
       

       
      Awil-sin - Fey Elf and Jafari - Cultist.
       

       
      Yrkill - Sky Dwarf Adventurer and Fahime - Evil Elven Assassin.
       

       
      Padean - Barbarian of the Western Plains and Elodie of the Blade - Elven Peacekeeper.
       
      Started working on Elodie:-
       

       
      Being an Elf I used Elf Fleshtone > Flesh Wash > Elf Fleshtone > Elf Fleshtone/Light Flesh, added a drop of Scarlett Red to the highlight mix for her lips, and gave her a pretty decent (IMO) pair of eyes.
      Next is her wacky hair.
