Good work on them!


As far as tips go, here's two, one general, and one more specific:


General: keep experimenting with different things, and find what works best for you. There is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to do anything in this hobby, only what works for you. If you're having fun, you're doing it right.


Specific: look into the 'dip' method. Basically, you base coat your figure, apply a coat of stained polyurethane (Minwax) over the entire figure, and the end result does a lot of your shading/highlighting for you. You're never going to win painting contests with this method, but if you need to get 100 orcs on the table by the day after tomorrow, this works like a charm. As the polyurethane is typically a dark color already, this doesn't work quite as well over darker figures. Going back to the general tip above, experimentation is key here. If this is of any interest. there are a lot of write ups and tutorials to be found with Google.
