Great work!

 

Smallest I paint is 6mm - GW Epic stuff, and 6mm Napoleonic

and 10mm Historical (Ancient, Roman, Dark Ages, and Renaissance)

 

I find it helpful to paint the 6mm as units rather than individual figures,

think of a base/stand of 10 figures as the "figure"

I also like the look of each base of figs being a small diorama

(at work so can't link pics)

That makes a lot of sense.  I bet it's easier to make the whole cohesive unit look good, as opposed to one tiny figure.

Oh boy.  My head aches imagining the kind of eye-strain that would cause!

smallest ones I have painted are either the 10mm CAV troopers or the grippli minis from Stonhaven (those are really tiny!)

 

Nice job on these, I really like how they came out!

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!

      This one is a real devil to paint.  
      I got the body down and feel the colors there all make sense for a fire demon.  But the wings...I can't figure out what to do with them.  I was thinking to make them the feature and brighten them up, but the more I look at it the more I think the face and body are the focus.  Needing some help here.
       

       
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      * Another round of dry brushing success!  Did a scarlet red, to flat red, to clear orange dry brush triad.  
      *  Used clear orange filter to bring up the areas of highlight and the subtle change looks really good and helps increase contrast.
      *  Horns seem to work pretty good with a oragnge/buff/white mix transitioning up.  
      *  Dry brushing the gold kept it a cooler color rather than a overwhelming "bam" gold look.  I used a yellow+gold mix to highlight the edge of the sword, but in looking at the photo I may need to increase this.
      * Vein on the right bicep has a purple hue I added.  I thought it was cool.
       
      Misses:
      *  I got pretty far along and then realized I have no idea how I want to do the wings.  I need help!  I need direction on the bone sections versus the wing membrane.  
      *  The left calf got a bit too healthy of a helping of orange filter.  
      *  The horns on his head don't seem to fit as well, but it's growing on me slowly.
      *   Tried putting yellow eyes.  Didn't like it.  Then tried doing yellow with purple dots.  Didn't like it.  Then tried yellow with white slits.  Meh.
      *  Used a filter around the eyes with yellow to give a glowing effect, but it was way too overpowering and ended up making him a devil raccoon.  Not the intended effect.  Died it back down with red, but still stands out a little weird.
       
      I've got 2 more in this series and want to give them some consistency.  I was thinking the female devil I would do a purple/red mix.  As always, open to some ideas.  
       
      If you're going to give feedback, I'd love some ideas on a diorama I could do with the three completed devils.

      It's been some time since I last posted here, but I recently got and painted this WizKid beholder! Comment, criticisms and advice will be gratefully received!
       
       
      The mini in the background I am not quite ready to post as I have not based it properly yet!

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?
