Re: Krull is BACK!! a slow WIP.

Here are the boys with there first stage skin basecoat. Both will become lighter, Krull especially, but there will be a hint of red through the figures to ensure harmony. http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p708/evl_hmr/P6090082_zpsed12f356.jpg http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p708/evl_hmr/P60900...

Sorn. The figures aren't for me, never got into D&D, but you are 100% correct, Bohun is my favourite artist, and so I am impressed nonetheless. I actually blew the Mini's up onto my PC screen, they are so good, way better than I first thought. Not my type of Mini's, but I can wholeheartedly appr...

Not really loving the armour as much as I thought I would, but the shield just pops. The reds are glowing. Really solid work again, you are like a painting machine. Top drawer, really excellent work.

Re: Darklands Models

Thank you so much for these posts. I must say I'm not keen on the other world figures, but this thread became awesome again with the alternative Malacant. That is such an inspiration, especially as I'm in the process of painting mine up. Thank you again.

Hi Grant, as I said in the KS, if you just really thin a couple of colours, I like purple and green, to a glaze, whereas there is hardly any colour visible and add these colours to your metals, it will create a really nice hue that breaks up the silver. You can use glazes on anything, and you are at...

Re: melusine mother pictures

I like what you have achieved, maybe you could thin your paints a little to help make the skin smoother next time. Also, the base is a little random, maybe make it a little more realistic, use it to help tell the story of your miniature. Really great though,thanks for posting.

Re: Razormage's Aradae Mawr - WiP

Far superior to my attempts, but I feel the contrasts are too severe for me. I'd want to to glaze the skin with some blues and purples to tie the highlights back a bit. Apart from that, brilliant, and a really good and interesting step by step. I really like your NMM too.
