I really like what you did with this, if I get to painting this one soon I think I will do something very similar.

Thanks, y'all! If you're interested in how I made the armor look kind of gross/ruined:

 

I first painted the metal as normal, by basecoating and then shading/highlighting. After that, I used GW's Typhus Corrosion technical paint. I used it as a shade, but the key was that after I put it on, I wiped the figure off in a downward direction with a makeup sponge. This left the corroded effect in the depths. After that, I retouched the highlights.

 

I use Reaper paints for just about everything, but I have to admit that I enjoy GW's technical paints every now and then!

Noice!  Where did you source the base from?  I like the color you chose for the mail.  Looks good and provides a nice contrast.

Thank you! The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures. They make some amazing stuff and I highly recommend them!

Genius; will have to try this soon! I love that dark, pitted, cast-iron effect.

Yeah, that Typhus Corrosion is pretty cool. Its got a mild grit in it or something. It also works well if you put it down before adding rust effects!

      Here's a bunch of giant animals from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion: the axebeak (44075), giant snake (44078), giant cave sloth (44079) and cave bear (44082). My typical color palette preferences tend to be fairly muted but I experimented with primary colors on the axebeak.

      One step closer to having the full Dungeon Dwellers set finished! I tried a lot of different stuff here, most for the first time! Such as...
      -Full NMM armor
      -Freehand on cloak
      -Painted highlights on liquid
      -A unique gem in the shield (Watermelon Tourmaline)
      -A tiny bit of OSL on the eyes

      The mighty Mumlaaaaaaaak! With an attendant caveman, just to highlight how huge this guy is.
       
      I just finished him this morning, and with him done I only have one more model to paint from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion. His axe incorporates a nude fertility idol, so I've created a link to the uncropped front view.

      I hadn't  planned on this purplish skintone for these guys. Originally it was going to be much redder, but I wasn't paying attention to the colors I was mixing, and the basecoat ended up looking lighter and tanner than I had intended. Instead of starting fresh, I made a wash with a lot of purple in it and applied it liberally to their skin, and this was the result.

      He's big. He's green. He's covered in spikes. He's your friend and mine: the hornslasher.
