    Default What is you're favourite mini?

    What is you're favourite mini and why?
    The one you enjoyed the most painting and the one painted by another person (post a link).
    The mini I enjoyed the most painting was Harry the hammer, fantastic sculpt by Ali Morrison, I painted it two years ago so it's quite bad standard but it's still my favourite in all the ones I painted.
    My favourite from someone else is the Dwarf Slayer ( http://coolminiornot.com/190034) from David Waeselynck who won the Slayer Sword in French GD 2008. It is a very good sculpt and a fantastic painting, amazing work on the skin and very good metals.

    Probably my favourite paintjob is http://coolminiornot.com/82809

    I would show which one of mine I like best but it would seem my photobucket account was deactivated for lack of use. I will be buggered if I can't get it back up as I don't have most of the figures anymore.

    My favorite piece I own is an old Ral Partha Cleric - he's holding up a cross in one hand and has the other hidden behind his back, holding a flail.
    Dr. Walter Bishop: I have used this technique to extract information from a corpse once. You can do that if they haven't been dead for longer than six hours.
    Peter Bishop: [in the background] Right, 'cause after six hours, that's when they're really dead.

    Epic Skarre - Pirate Queen, from Privateer Press.
    You see, fate is like a cat. Sometimes it is nice, and lets you pet it, and it sits in your lap. Sometimes it does not care at all and just wanders around ignoring you. Sometimes it farts in your face, scratches you, then coughs up a hairball on your carpet that you have to pick up.

    The dwarfs were really fun to paint because of the camaraderie between Shawn and myself (he painted it mentally through my hands)
    Favorite produced for me are of the not so mini minis size-Pegaso's Fire, was hard painting but good learning I have another copy here someday I shall paint to keep.
    This man inspired me and is still my favorite painter

    No idea what my favorite MINI is but my favorite line to paint has to be hasslefree for it's.....well, ease to paint. Favorite line for scultps would be hard. A while ago it would have been gamezone even with the bad casts. But now there's so many new good comanies. Kingdom Death minis are really cool. I do love Dwarves of all types. I can't narrow it down.

    Now if you're talking about the one I had the most fun painting it would be this

    Mostly because it made me chuckle the whole time I was doing it. But I sculpted that one myself. BTW, it's not easy making a rock look like a rock.

    I'd like to second the JMD Demon. I couldn't resist buying one. Really great cast too.

    I simply love it! It is what I wanted to achieve on my falcon, but I failed... hard compared to that.
