Oldy Mini Showcase

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.p1000811p1000815p1000816

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.p1000817p1000818p1000819p1000820

Warmachine The Butcher of Khardov

The first human faced miniature I am actually proud of.  Before this mini the faces of the Warcasters or human soldiers i painted up were splotchy because of over generous shading and bad brush control.  One of the reasons why i think this miniature also turned out better is because the sculpt is very good and clean.  And one of the few times I didn’t go overboard with the Blood effect and make Lola the axe look like it is covered in strawberry jam.
