Maggotcrown Ogre Juggernaut - my first attempt at NMM

Very wicked, I really like your color scheme here. What did you use to highlight the red on the armor?
 

He’s a fun model to paint! I’d get another one honestly. 

 

Sadly, I don't have any Reaper paints, so it was a combo of Army Painter and Vallejo. The highlights are Vallejo extra opaque uo through a flesh tone.

Good work! He is indeed really red! To really hit the NMM, try being brave with the highlights - right up to white on the sharpest areas. ;)

I love how you painted the armor. It's not too shiny, exactly how it should look like on a wearer coming back to haunt the battlefield.

 

I agree, though I would have been ecstatic if it had ended up looking more metallic, like the kind of NMM you see in the big painting comps.

BUT! I am trying not to compare myself to them. I've started painting a few "orphaned" Stormcast Eternals with NMM gold, and I will only compare myself today to myself yesterday. I promise. Honest. Really.

      Vatanis came in my  Paint & Take Home Survival Kit, and I started him off as part of the craft paint challenge, but it just wasn't working. 

       
       
       
      So he got set aside for a couple of months, until I saw Cicciopiu's magnificent rendition.  I leaned on it heavily for inspiration

      He has so, so many details.  I could put much more time into this, but I had reached a point where I had to stop.

      So this is me trying to paint non-metallic metal for the first time. The mini is one of the dwarves from thehnolog's castlecraft line. Since it is my first, I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope I'll get better at this over time. All comments and suggestions regarding NMM are welcome. Thanks for looking!

      Hi everyone, here's another 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior. The original version this time. This model was sculpted by Tre Manor.

      In pursuit of my goal, here is another Gnoll that I finished painting last night. This 77234, Boneflail female Gnoll Cleric was sculpted by Tre Manor.
      In spite of their devotion to Yeenoghu, few Gnolls have any interest in ritual and there is few clerics or shamans to be found among the savage packs. Gnolls would sometimes summon demons to fight alongside them.
