Been awhile since I painted a humanoid figure. Here is my recent one, before I have sealed her.

I too have had the painting bug recently. Here are some shots of my latest ones from the Cthulhu Wars game. Really cool minis to paint. Plus they are pretty big, which helps my sawdust filled eyes. Th

Ok - so haven't put any sealer on these yet.. but my first attempts at painting minis in probably over 30 years -- From the Reaper "skills" kit:  I like how these turned out for the most part.. a

I like how you approached these. Very subtle color changes look very good.

They look more like the inside of an abalone shell in person.  Blue and purple. 

For the base set, I have 2 X 2 more adult mins in different poses, 2 breeders, and the queen.  The queen is awesome.

Greart! Can't wait to see her painted. Keep sharing them.

A lot of layers of paint on the aliens!  Primer, white, grey stain, dry brush blue, dry brush purple, dry brush a smidge of green, then a coat of pearl.  Then the bones are done separately.

My entry for the 2020 Miniature Monthly Masters.  This big guy is an XL enemy from Shadows of Brimstone -- roughly 75mm in scale w/o the wings.

Trying my new light booth. Still seems to wash out colors and come out overexposed. I may need to ask Santa for a cheap DSLR as the cell camera seems to be to blame.

Looks really great. Amazing detail and love the color changes on the wings. Yes, it is probably the cell phones fault on the pics.

Very cool @Zoxe!  When I feel like I'm getting real good, then I get a reminder of how far I have to go yet.  Though I doubt I'll ever get an air brush.

There will always be someone better. Always. Don't let it get you down. You've come a long way already, just keep pushing.

These are very cool. Love to see a pic of them all on the table during game play. That's what makes it all worth it.

That will be a while.  I was hoping they would have figured out a vaccine by now.  By the time it gets down to nobodies like us, it could be a year.

So cool to see them all together. That queen is the shit. Nice work. Doesn't it feel good to have them all lined up like that?

Yes and no.  I still have the expansion to do.  A whole nother set of characters and monsters.  I'm going to let them sit a little bit so I can do something different for a while.  The Gingerbread Gang showed up, so I'm switching gears to War in Christmas Village.

Nice. Do you have pans for another one shot? I am guessing it would be for next holiday season...

Yes, but not this year.  I plan to use the phrase: They smell like ginger, nutmeg, and malice.  I got the first 8 painted.
