Here is a trio of Wizkids elves painted up for tabletop. It was very annoying to get to the bowman's face - so its not really painted in detail. I have mixed feeling about wizkids humanoids.... I feel a bit grumpy about how these didn't turn out, but its' my fault... I do like the yellow velveteen effect I got on the one cloak...

I agree with you about their humanoid figures, I like a lot of their monsters, though.

 

If you're happy with how the yellow cloak turned out it was worth the effort to do; now you'll be able to take what you learned here and use it elsewhere. :winkthumbs:

Thanks for all the kind words! I really do have mixed feeling about the wizkids humanoids - on the one hand I like the slender builds of them and some of the poses - on the other hand detail can be shallow and a bit odd - somehow the folds in the cloaks seem strange to me, and I have a hard time painting them.

Exactly! Most of the monster figs are rad and have great detail, as do most of the nick-nacks (I love the telescope and sextet). But the humanoids are all just meh and hard to work with.

      Been putting this on the table sans paint a couple of times, so long overdue painting was finally done. It's been a center pices for a hag's tower and now the party took it!

      Here is a pack of werewolves from Wizkids. Once again I found myself a bit annoyed with their smaller sculpts - they don't quite fit my personal aesthetic and some of the details are rather shallow for my tabletop skills. I chopped out the hand that one of the sculpts was holding. Quick painting and the photos tell me a familiar story - MORE highlights needed! All in all the players were surprised that those wolves trailing them had a bit more to them....

      I had a spare iron golem miniature sitting around and I just got some new metallic paints from Army Painter so decided to test them out. I started with a base of Night shade which is a very nice dark blue and then did a heavy drybrush of gun metal. After that I highlighted with Glitter Green, Tainted Gold and Evil Chrome (their name, not mine) and because most images of iron golems depict them as reddish in color I went over most of it with Gemstone. Even though I didn't use any washes on the golem itself I'm pretty happy with the results.

      Beholders are one of those miniatures I've steered clear of because I don't think I have the skills to do it justice so I decided to tackle the zombie version instead.

      I'd really hate to run into this thing in the woods, swamp or anywhere else for that matter.
