The skin tones look good to me.  Was it just the three paints of the triad?  Anything else on the shadow or highlight side of things?

Thanks Darcstaar!  It started about as the base with Restone Highlight and then went down:

to

Redstone

Redstone shadow

Dark Skin Highlight

Dark Skin

Dark shadow

Dark Elf shadow

Walnut Brown

and somewhere in there, I think between Dark Skin and Dark Shadow I put some dark elf skin.

 

And then going up from the Redstone Highlights:

 

Tanned Shadow

Tanned Skin

Tanned highlight

Fair Skin

Fair highlight

White

 

I always paint very watered down layers, which I’m not sure is a good or a bad thing, whether they be the highlights or the washes.  If I wasn’t so old and set in my ways, I could probably get away with less and thicker layers, but oh well.

Well, that does explain the rich, smooth skin you consistently achieve.

Thank you Darcstaar,   I'm glad that all these layers haven't gone to waste!  I watch Anne Forester a lot on her Twitch and I'm always amazed at seeing her results, and she only does four or five layers lots of times and her stuff comes out so beautifully.  Sometimes I want to figure out a way to economize, but at the same time, I'm so used to working the way I do I don't know if I'd change my process.

Super smooth! You did an amazing job pulling out the detail of these minis. The frill and feathers look great. That can be hard to do on older minis. Skin looks good to me and the guns subtle, yet also nicely done. Nice work all around.

Beautiful - I love the look of the pale leather, so supple... 

Thanks Iridil, I used a whole bunch of different Reaper "leather" colors!

Great Minis. Phantastik paintjob.

Just saw them yesterday on the RP Homepage.

Thanks Krassling, hopefully in a few days these painted versions will show up there as well on their catalogue.

      Good evening my Reaperhoovians!
       
      So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize.  Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them.  Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part.
       

       
      and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives, so even if there are no Drow in Shadowrun, nobody will lose a finger.
       
      And here's the group as it's all together:
       

       
      I wanted them to fit all in one page so I didn't put them on bases, and I painted the rim black, and I can see a little bit of irregularities on that.  Not sure if I may eventually actually either repaint the base or actually put them on bases so they don't fall over.  The biggest problem is after I take them off their temporary base, I don't want to touch them and that's where it all gets tricky.
       
      Anyhow, a problem for later, hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      Black on black, your standard sci-fi street-runner.  Gave his coat a touch of purple just to give the eye something to look at.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!
