Craft Paint Challenge

Um... I don't know how else to say this other than bluntly...

I only own craft paints...  I've only ever used them.

When I buy more expensive "proper" paints (vallejo, citadel, etc) for mini-painting, I just get disappointed.

Sooo.... Can I even enter in this contest?  I feel like I'd be "cheating"...


Sure, show us what you can do with craft paint.  It's not really a contest to see who is best.  Craft paint gets a bad rap sometimes, so the idea is to show off with it.

Some necromancers.



The rogue and the maiden...



A repaint of a lizard-man.



A paladin?  (I was trying a new painting style).


I don't want to show more, 'cause...

Yeah, craft paints is pretty much all I use, so... that would be a LOT of images.

Still chipping away on mine. Work and life have been a real slog lately, so I haven't had much time or will to paint anything.

The right oxen was painted with craft paints, I wanted to see how it compared.  it turned out fine, but its for sure shinier than the Reaper paint I used on the left one.

      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.

      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.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....

      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
