Okay, so I promised I'd upload some images of my miniatures, so here's the first... This is a 180mm resin piece, with about 8 months' of painting work put into it. Each hair on the boar is highlighted, and the horns are 32 layers of paint, as thin as milk, to give the translucent effect needed. The metals are layered equally so, with metallic paints thinned right out to allow the metal flakes to "float" free of the pigment. I think it works. Colours are all over a black basecoat (don't EVER let anyone tell you that's wrong!) to give a more natural and less garishly bright effect. I used to love doing these, but it's not so easy for me now; my hands shake, and my fingers are not quite flexible enough to handle the brushes delicately enough to produce the goods, so I haven't done any for some time. Maybe I'll have another go one day.

Thank you, yes I'm getting by. Just dealing with some family issues and such, a few changes here that we need to get our heads round.

Thanks for stopping by!

It was a very fine workmanship, interesting that red hair. They are small in size and can be hidden at one spot :) Good shot ..!

Incredible work! I've got a few I want to spend a ton of time on, but haven't started them yet. And I few I've spent a ton of time on that I haven't shared, lol. I'll have to post my Firbolg bard in the next day or so.

Thanks, I used to paint these for competition purposes, so got quite good! I struggle now though, which is a shame really, as I quite enjoyed doing them. One day I might give it another go. Probably not on such an expensive model though!
