I decided to mess around with GW contrast paints on some clear resin Wizkids Deep Cuts Hell Hound minis. This is what they look like unpainted.
I washed the mini in warm soapy water, then undercoated it with some matt varnish.
I then wet blended Iyaden Yellow, Gryph-Hound Orange, Blood Angels Red, Flesh Tearers Red and Black Templar, before going back over the top with the yellow and orange in random spots on the red and black areas to give a bit more variation.
Here is the other (finished) Hell Hound:
Super simple and really quick, but pretty effective.
It has a metal collar that I think I’ll paint in opaque paint, but I’m not sure what colour metal. Any suggestions?
Similarly, I think I should put some glowing eyes. Do I go for yellow-white, bright red or something else?
As you can see from the title, I'm a noob playing around with layering. Or glazing? I'm not sure about the difference, in the tutorial videos I watched, both techniques come down to painting diluted paints over a base coat.
I've painted the armor with a black-and-silver mix, then painted over with diluted silver where I imagine the light hits. I'm happy with the effect. I feel like I've messed up the face. I layered Vallejo Paint Bronze Fleshtone (over that color + white) to simulate shade from the helmet, and tried to pain the eyes gold because she's depicted with glowing eyes in the official artwork. I think I should just have gone for skin-wash... I hope I can salvage it. I also see now that I haven't been thorough with removing the mold lines and messed up the gold detail somewhat.
I'm a bit unsure about what to do with the hair and, well, whatever you call this piece of clothing.
I painted shades on the lower part of the hair, in the areas where multiple layers of cloth overlap and on the right where the wing is above it. I just glazed over with a red + black mix. I'm kind of going back and forth thinking that it looks too dark and smudgy, and (especially on the front) not dark enough. I'm also unsure if I should add highlights or shades on the wavy part. It's relatively flat, and most tutorials I've seen deal with robes that have very deep folds.
I definitely want to add highlights to the hair, but I don't know what color. Mixing red and white would give pink, and that doesn't seem right. I tried glazing with orange, but wasn't happy with the result, so I glazed over with red again. It's still slightly visible.
Some other minor detail, I've tried to paint the shadow of the body on the base of the wings. Not sure I like it, but you only see it when you go looking for it anyway...
One more picture that I took, can't really think of any commentary.
Any advice on layering or any other things is very welcome!
Been awhile since I shared something here.
Here's a night hag I painted up a few months back.

I'd love to see some of your favorite examples of OSL so feel free to drop them below!
Also, what's your favorite D&D hag, or favorite witch from pop culture.
- I guess they're not technically hags, but I love the Fates from Disney's Hercules. They always creeped me out and I love running witches like them.
Hi! I was just wondering if there were any reaper dragon minis close in size to the young green wizkids dragon? or any other dragons of any types that's not wizkids that's similar in size? I'm wanting to run an encounter with two dragons of the same size and would prefer not to double up on minis, and would love to expand my dragon collection to other companies than wizkids.
