Finished the learn to paint kit a few days ago and I am hooked. I know it's not as refined as some of the paint jobs here, but man do these guys look better than my first attempts (nearly 30 years ago) which looked like blobs of melted wax. I can't wait to paint my little pile of goblins. Hopefully, I'll continue to make progress and I'll be able to get through all those minis my wife surprised me with when she backed Bones IV. 

 

I'd love to hear any suggestions or advice that you all might have.

Welcome to the Forum!

 

They look great and you will get better by painting more.

These look definitely better than my first minis..

 

I think you can enhance the overall look of the minis more by adding some sand/flcok/snow whatever to the bases.

A little PVA ( white woodglue) and some sand or grass tufts would make them stand out more.

But that's my opinion.

All in all a great job!

Thanks man. I'm already 2 goblins into my small horde and am trying to figure out what to paint next. 

 

Can you recommend a good basing video or tutorial?

Great job, especially for someone who is just starting out (or, I guess, just getting back into painting, from the sound of it). I think the orc is my favorite of the three. The chainmail is particularly well-done. My only bit of feedback for the future would be to consider some edge highlighting the next time you work on a mini with armor like Mangu's... it'll really help bring out the details and make the model pop.
