well I think you have done some great work on him.  nice detail work especially. 

a very monstrous figure. 

 

as for criticism - I think the boringness you complain of comes from the skin being all the same tones -

you might add some red or  tanning on the shoulders, freckles or liver spots scattered in various places (basically stippling dots intermittently) 

or add some blue/purple shadows to shadows lower on his chest, but not at the top ... that sort of thing. 

just to increase the variation across the large amount of skin.

I think you're on to something there, I was much happier with Eddie and he was mostly skin too, but he was also covered in veins that broke up all that flesh.

I've still got two of these big mutants to paint up (Eventually), I'll try and put more work into their skin.

I think it looks incredible. Personally, a little simpler but perfectly executed is ideal. Maybe the skin doesn’t have loads of stuff going on but not everything needs to be busy all the time, the boils and wounds it has look great. My personal opinion would be to just vary the color of the boils to include some purples and blacks like bubonic plague or maybe some bright infected greens or oranges. Maybe even some gooey leakage from some of them?  
 

Too much “stuff” gets cluttered to me sometimes, I think color alone could give a little more variation.  But you guys are WORLDS ahead of me in terms of skill and knowledge so just my $.02 to be taken with a grain of salt.  Awesome work, truly amazing skill with a brush.

      Awhile back I was inspired by a gamer on the internet who had converted some Goblins into Gnomes. So I decided to try something similar but with my own style. Unsurprisingly, after I did this I found several other folks online had had similar ideas as well. Including JFA of Hagglethorn Hollow fame.

      A bit of greenstuff and a change in the usual colors… presto! Gnomes instead of Goblins.
       
      In hindsight if I was doing this again I think I would use different arms, weapons and shields on the two melee models but otherwise I am pleased with how they came out. Of course they are rather big Gnomes.
       
      The next Gnomes I convert will be from Wargames Atlantic Halfling Militia….

      Presenting Brutogg Corpse-Eater, my first finished adventurer from the game Cursed City by Games Workshop.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy, I experimented by giving him grey-hued skin to represent his unhealthy eating habits (he eats zombies) and it worked better than I thought it would.
      Annoyingly though, I had to leave the bits under his coat unpainted (just couldn't get a brush up there), nobody will notice unless they turn him upside down, but it still bothers me that he's technically "Unfinished".
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City.
      I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help!
       
      First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):-
       
       
       
      And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum.
      I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30 and then a 32, but I know this project is doomed if I start with a rat pile instead of something interesting):- Brutogg Corpse-Eater, unusual Ogre:-
       

       
      I've made him a simple base (I've been spoilt by all the integral ones I've been dealing with lately), mostly sand with some broken flagstone patches made of putty, and gave him the usual White Primer and Brown Wash undercoat.
      Leaving him to dry overnight.

      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.

      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.
