I like the freehand!

 

Dragon/Demon/Bull it doesn't matter, it looks great!

And I like the firm look she has, nobody is going to mess with this girl!

Thanks Glitterwolf, even though I have huge doubts about my freehand.  Those nostrils almost look to me like two olives!

Hmm, Come to think of it, if you look at it upside down it kinda looks like a monstrous insect and the nostrils become eyes.

Anyway, I like it!

Insect came to mind as well for me, but certainly wasn’t the intention. Oh well, at least it’s not just a plain orange shield!

Looks great. What is your Chainmail and Flesh recipe?

Thanks!

 

I typically start with X color and then go do darker washes, and then highlights afterwards up to white.

 

If I recall for this flesh it was started as Tanned Highlight, and then from there went down:

Tanned skin

Tanned shadow

Dark highlights

Dark Skin

Dark Elf Skin

Dark elf shadow

walnut brown

 

and then from tanned highlights going up, did

fair skin

fair highlights

pure white

 

With the chainmail and metal in general the base color was ashen blue and then went down:

soft blue

dark elf skin

dark shadow

dark elf shadow

pure black

 

and from ashen blue, went highlighting:

cloud grey

rainy grey

misty grey

ghost white

pure white

 

Hope that's helpful!

Great job as always! Love the face and especially the freehand at the shield.

I kind of wonder about my freehand, but thank you very much in any case!

Great paintjob on a cool old figure! The freehand design on her shield looks good, IMO.:winkthumbs:

Thank you Chaoswolf! Still not quite sure what it’s supposed to be!

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!

      These guys are really tiny, from back in the days when the word "miniature" really meant something.  They are based on 0.5" washers.

      And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night".  
       
      And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue.
       

       
      Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt.  Let me know what you think of the colors!

      Hello everybody! Hope a lot of you are having a great time at ReaperCon, one of these days hope to go!
       
      So here is one of the figures I finished last night, a Ral Partha female fighter, sculpted by Bob Charette.   With this figure, it took me forever to figure out what color I wanted her clothing to be, so after a long and painful struggle just gave up and made them white. Don't know if that's ever happened to anybody else?
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!
