Here are 3 of my older painted minis. They are all Dreadnought-ish size and from when really did not highlight and shaded very messily. There are also very obvious glossy areas that should be more satin and vice versa.
First one is the Helbrute from the Dark Vengeance set. I overall like the figure but there are specific areas with very mushy details which made painting as a novice very annoying. I also tried using a matte varnish spray can but just came out very grainy.
The Second Figure is the Deathjack for Warmachine. I love the weight of this figure because it is entirely white metal. This was also one of the first models where I really experienced the fragility of acrylic paint on metal. This was before I was properly priming models also. Might have went overboard with the blood technical paint. He looks like he was pawing a jar of strawberry jam.
The last figure is the Daemon Prince model. I decided to build it as a Space Marine Daemon Prince instead of a Fantasy model. It is a pretty simply model to paint. It is a good way to practice painting fleshy bits and armor in the same kit. Other than that it is an okay kit, not one of my favorites though.
