Isolation Speed Painting

I think the rubble around the base ought to be the same color as the walls.  Then some moss or greenery in that area would look good.  You have dark dirty walls, but the dirt on the ground is pretty light, so I would darken that a bit too.

It looks good already, but it will look even better with vegetation/moss etc.

Some great stuff in this thread, Thoramel - could I be so rude as to as about the colour recipe for your KS kobolds?  Just got my own cavalry this morning, and that's very much the direction I'd like to go...

Not rude at all. I start every mini by "priming" it in grey scale like this...

And then for the kobold skin I go over that in a thinned layer of Vallejo orange brown, then drybrush with reaper explosion orange, then hit it with some thinned Army Painter light tone. That's it. Cheers and post your results, I'd love to see some of them painted up.

So. I stopped posting completed minis because I dropped my phone about a week ago and it broke the camera. I'm going to miss that phone, but it was beyond time to replace it. So long live the new phone! Anyways, I took The suggestions to heart and darkened up the soil of the terrain mini, then gave it some excess vegetation. Thanks for the comments because I really like the results.

I'm still figuring out the new phone camera so it may be a bit before I get photos of everything I've recently painted that I'm happy to post. But here's something I'm pretty satisfied with...

Still getting the hang of my phone's camera, so here's a few more that I set up under different light conditions to see which I liked best.

 

This is from a box of bones kickstarter minis I didn't have a use for, occasionally I'll grab one out at random and give it a quick paint job.

Can't go wrong with more townsfolk.

I wanted to paint some elves without green. I kept subconsciously reaching for the green. Something about elves I guess.

This guys happy. And he wants to let the happy out in everyone he meets. Preferably through a hole he just made with his spear.

My wife said this space mousling looks mercenary to her. So I told her she can't have it until she bakes me cookies.

Third time I've painted this guy, favorite so far.
