Good effort, it looks convincing.  I have yet to commit to an NMM attempt, for what ever reason I always overthink it, frazzle my brain and then pull out the regular metallics to save a head ache.... 😅

I'll second the advice to keep on working on your blending - that's what I need to work on. My gold/bronze NMM is better than my silver/steel but both can use some work.

 

What I really like about this mini is the lo-res appearance which brings to mind computer games from the early to mid 90s - I'm thinking Eye of the Beholder and the like.

It is like that for me too! But I guess the only way to learn is to put some paint on the mini and work your way from there. I hope I get better at it over time 😅

Thank you! I was going for a lo-res look and I'm glad it looks like that! I was inspired by shovel knight 😁

That looks great! Also fun to see a Tehnolog mini here. 😄

As for the NMM, I think you did a really good job! I've honestly not done any myself, but I would say that you probably want to work on smoother blends, and also that you'll probably want to have some minor parts where the highlight is strongest go completely white, if you want it to look actually shiny. 😄 

 

And again, really good job!

      Hi all! How do you do?
       
      It's been a while since I last shared a mini here. I recently converted and painted one for my egyptian-themed Frostgrave warband.
       
      Since the mini is a female and has bare breasts, I am supposed -as per the forum rules- to post links to the pictures instead of displaying them directly in the post. So consider this topic slightly NSFW.
       
      To begin with, here is the mini I started with:
      https://www.reapermini.com/search/yanara https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/01/p1090389.jpg  
      For the conversion, here's what I did:
      Sawed the head off. A brutal surgery but a necessary one. [picture] Replaced the head with a bald one from Statuesque Miniatures. [picture] Filed off the remaining hair with a Dremmel power tool. [picture] Filed off the belt decoration and replace it with an Ankh cross. Resculpted the piece of fur on her shoulders and upper back. Cut off the top of her staff and replace it with an egyptian staff decoration (a double ostrich feather ornament)  
      The result after the conversion: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090830.jpg
       
      After priming in off-white: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090832.jpg
       
      And finally, the painted mini: [Front Picture] / [Side Picture 1] / [Side Picture 2] / [Back Picture] / [Close-up Picture]
       
      If you want to see the pictures directly, you may visit my blog post (although it's written in french): https://legolemquireve.wordpress.com/2022/06/29/sandgrave-djesa-la-thaumaturge/

      I like the tehnolog romans, they are quite simple but very effective after being painted! The shield is a plastic piece used to cover screws on furniture 😁 Thanks for looking!

      Hey everyone, I completed another one Yesterday. Some more orange... on a completely different model. She reminded me of Red Sonja so I decided to paint her hair fiery red.
      This is 02759, Dena the Barbarian sculpted by Dennis Mize.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      The Gravestone of Protection 77539 was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and the Shrine is a 3d print by Aleda at Gothic Things.
