    Thanks! I love that base for the libby. That is a nice color you have for the base of the bronze NMM. Who is it by? It will look better once you lay in the other colors. Rough it out first and then refine it once you see how the other colors affect it

    I have had a pretty big work load which has been keeping me away, But Im back to my little Dwarf and Librarian.

    So I have made an effort on the shield for nmm, need to brighten up the runes but other than that Im moving on to the rest of the mini. Its the first attempt, Maybe more transition from black/brown with a smaller amount of black would be better for the future?

    And Colours for the Lib, I think I will have to make the tiles a little pinker to tie the base in. I should realy paint the base last but I could not resist.

    Hope to start him tonight, if I dont get carried away with the nmm.

    Wow, that nmm is really nice. Nothing wrong with painting the base first, many people paint them up and then wait for the right mini to come along.

    Its a bit too dark and I cant get a good shot of the shoulder of the dwarf it seems a bit merky to me. But here its the 1st step of the LibrarianI worked the lights and darks as you can see on the underside of the Libs arm and the transitions of the backpack.

    Shazam base looks like it was meant to be!
    The Flash is making the lighter shades a bit baby blue, will see how they look in natural light tomorrow.

    Now Im thinking of doing something like this on his gauntlet.

    Heya, stuff is looking good! Just a comment on brushes. Everyone has different preference, I use W and N series 7, just my preference. As to size I have many but I do almost all my painting with my 0 and 1, this includes eyes, dark lining, freehand, etc. I use this over the 000 for one main reason, though it is a tiny bit harder to get the hang of you get a much longer working time. 000 dries up much to fast for my liking! This is frustrating but more I importantly I can lead to awful chalkiness and gummy painting (semi dry paint comes off the brush ruining blends and making unsightly texture.)

    Marine is looking very nice, im impressed with his sword blade. I can not paint in sections like you are, I have to assemble the mini first to get the overall look.

    As for the keys / greys - yes more highlights, always more highlights but only use pure white in selected places.
    I used dark outlines like you have to make the details stand out. I never use pure black, makes the mini look a bit off.
    Try and get the edge highlights to flow around the shape of the item (to try and get the 3D shape) eg the keys, around the contours of the rope etc.
    Ive tried this on mine below - the key ring loop / keys - but i'm still off with the look.

    Thank you for asking but I don't do commissions.

    I have put him together to see how he is coming along, I did put some paint on and fudged it up, so took it apart again.
    I used Glacier blue for the beggining highlights and a dot/ strip of skull white in places, quite pleased with the sword arm.

    Looks like a small amount of pure white is required for the camera but IRL its a bit better

    Damn that is nice. I really like the little scratches and wear on the armour too!
