Hi guys, continuing my journey in painting :)
This time , wizkids again, human male fighters. I got a bit of a hard time with those. super small but lot of tiny details xd, also male the mistake to not prime them and I should have made them black or at least zenhital stuff anyway.
last I have just realize that when coating the base some paint get on one of the sword haha..well , will improve for next one !
Finally got to do some work on the Duergar that went with the clockwork Golem.
Not a whole bunch done, 3 layers on their skin, plus their eyes. They are all Bald As Eggs! so doing their heads is turning into an experience...
I am using Scale 75 Brown Gray, Rainy Gray, and Thar Brown as my colors, all from the Black & White set.
The Female cleric seems to have plucked her eyebrows as well...
The Sergeant has both eyebrows and a braided beard
The 2 grunts also have eyebrows and beards...
The old AD&D books say Duergar have light to medium grey skin, and medium to dark hair, so after some more glazes on their heads to smooth things out a bit more, the hair will get done!
Comments and Ideas welcome
all they need are brow ridges and they could be Kilingons!

The Draugr from Red Box Games. I absolutely love these figures! I used this tutorial for the skin and I can't help to be somewhat befuddled with how many different hues I still managed... I'm really pleased with the result. If I was to change anything it would be to stain the clothing.
Every now and again I'll do random Give Aways of unpainted figures and painted figures. Recently I did one and forum member Shogun won 5 figures painted by me at table top quality. Now I'm going to be moving somewhere in the next 6 months and I'll be getting rid of every single figure I've ever painted, so keep your eyes open for that one, because it's going to be raining free lead. most of which will be Reaper.
Anyway, these are the first two of the five I'm doing, They are male and female Skoli Warriors. All five figures I am painting for Shogun are from Reaper.
These frustrated me at first because I'm not used to working with this palette, but I ended up really enjoying these two in the end. I got to do some weathered, rusted metal for the first time and I'm now in love with that technique.
Shogun will be basing the figures himself, so I have done no basing.
The WIP for these can be found here http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49983-olearys-wip-thread-of-everything-reaper/page-9#entry797170
Finally got my Bathalian based. Went a bit lazy on this one. The idea was a simple dirt foundation base with a slime trail.
For the slime trail, I simply glopped superglue everywhere around the bathalian. Also helped set him to the base, obviously.
I used a superglue activator on the glue, since I didn't want to wait a long while for it to dry (there was a lot of glue laid down). It kept it from drying quite clear, but I think I kind of like the effect. I'll think more on it, but for now, I'm satisfied.
As mentioned in my WIP thread, the back scales were done in MSP Christmas Wreath (quickly becoming my favorite green) with shading from PP Bloodstone, and Vallejo Model Color Fluorescent Green for the edging. The belly scutes were done with the new bone triad that came with the second paint set from the last kickstarter, and the other light bits were done with the same, except bathalian chiton taking the place of the midtone. Darker bits were shaded with GW agrax earthshade. Claws and armspikes were done with muddy brown and walnut brown.
I thought about doing the back of his cranium in MSP Brains Pink, but I decided it would stand out too much against the rest of the mini.
Finally, a scale pic with Tox the wizard standing in for Sir Forscale.
