Second mini (stay at home version 2020)

Recommended Posts

Looks good! I've been in the hobby for a few years now and I still curse at those stubborn left eyes- they just have to be difficult!

The fact that you're already painting eyes at this point shows you got the talent.

I sometimes cheat, use a small wooden toothpick and use it to apply a dot to the eye.

 

Orc looks fine.

If you want to take it to the next level use more highlights and shadows.

For example that fur loincloth would look even better with a darker wash/shadows and some drybrushing with a lighter tone.

But it's definitely a good looking Orc and it would look great on any gametable.

Good work, the model's looking great. I agree with Glitterwolf, some highlights and shadows would be an excellent progression and make your miniatures stand out more. The skin would lend itself well to trying it, with slabs of muscle clearly defined. Look forward to seeing more of your models!!

Excellent brush control.  The separate regions of the mini are all clean.  It's a great foundation to build upon with more shadows and highlights as others have mentioned.

Can you guys recommend a good link to a shadow/highlight tutorial?

Thanks for all the references, I got inspired and took another pass at some highlights!

Also gave the knight a go.  Tried to dirty him up a bit!  :)

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future!
       
      As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good!


      The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous.
       
       
      The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!

      Hadn't seen this here yet:

         You enter the cavern with water dripping down from overhead. The smell of rotten meat is thick in the air. From up ahead in the distance you hear the loud battle cry of your enemy SQUEEEEEEE! 
      Painted by Ben Rodman      Pig faced orcs.  The most iconic encounter of any classic adventure. We have a nice variety of these little oinkers in the pen.
      We enlisted the help of Bobby Jackson to sculpt the porcs and Jason Wiebe for all the pork besties. They did an awesome job.
      Fortress Figures will be casting these beauties up in lead free white metal. 
      Any support for our small family owned business is greatly appreciated.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
