    Warmachine - Aurora.

    except for a little skin, the whole model is based on differently tinted silver metallics. Also NMM for WM figures is relatively rare (like normal metallics for Rackham ones).
    With the correct osl this could be one helluva looking mini.

    Also what's not to like about a female clockwork-warcaster

    Maybe some Infiniti figs? They have lots of lasers and lights plus armor, might be neat to see some there.

    That's a difficult question to answer Tommie, because I've yet to see a 28mm figure which couldn't be painted in an NMM technique.
    Larger scale is a different matter as I've not see that many painters tackle a 54 or 75 mm figure in NMM.
    Ramping up scale for NMM involves a more subtle approach and a lot more care and attention to detail.
    I've done it and it took a lot of effort to get the light reflection/highlight 'Flare' in alignment throughout the whole bust.

    But for me it's basically the figure in my hand in my hand at the time.

    I'm with DR - all of them. TMM, when done JUST right, can be even more impressive than NMM. But TMM is a harsh mistress, and very few people have tamed her that I've seen. And I'll take even middle-of-the-road NMM over straight metallic paint.

    Display miniatures Although it sounds really strange, as artistically impressive as squads of mini's done in NMM look, I just think it looks out of place and prefer well done TMM. One exception to this is that I think cloth 'metallics' (banners, cloaks etc) do look right with embellishments done in NMM.

    Obviously, NMM can be time consuming and so I usually reserve it for character pieces and special units.. That said, since I don't do much wargaming, I use it most of the time. But, there are also instances when I like to use it like if the mini has little bits of metal- because I don't have to make up a lot of mixes. I also think NMM works in tandem with on-light source effects, because it's hard to get an opaque tint on a metallic object without it looking weird otherwise. Though it can look incredibly cool when it's done correctly, I don't really like doing large and/or whole figs in NMM (He says, with this mini on his pics.) then again, at one time I had the idea to do a whole squad for the GD's in NMM as a joke and have a title on the base "NMM Police".. Anyways, it's all up to personal preference.

    I really like TMM on 40k stuff. I think when done well it adds some neat texture and kind of helps to break the "fourth wall" or the space between the viewer and the subject. I know a lot display painters are trying to do the opposite of that, to make things look perfect, but I do appreciate stuff that looks a little cartoonish, or like a toy. Eldar and Tau are probably an exception.

    Well as soon as I saw your Amazing Blood Angel I immediately thought of the effect for the Necrosphinx, so after stripping my previous paint work with a good soaking in Fairy Power Spray I set to work, that was eighteen months ago and I have worked intermittently on it since, although knowhere near the standard of the Blood Angel I am very pleased with the effect and intend to put it in the Monster Painting Competition in GW Manchester in March, I will also hope to get descent photos to display on CMON

    I could totally picture her done in something like Sproket did with Chee Chee. I will likely just do different TMMs and play with powders - because I'm chicken.

    wow, that's much bigger, than I thought.
    and looking at your link: only 19.95 for a resin statue that size, it's not expensive at all.

    Oh yes and they send their stuff in fancy boxes with magnetic flaps. MDC is a class act all the way! I have my eye on the girlie with the long legs and gas mask too. They actually have a ton of great stuff in larger scales.

    I always wondered why resin GK's cost so much.. It's RESIN not gold! maybe if they would put out more than 300 kits total they could make more money..
    Anyways, that being larger scale may work out better in TMM than NMM. Though you can airbrush bigger models, I feel that the effect is ruined when you can move slightly and the reflection doesn't change like it would with real shiny metal. In a small scale, it's not so apparent because the surface area is smaller.

    It may have more to do with the cost and lifespan of the moulds, than the cost of the resin.

    Thanks for the comments some interesting insights.
    I think i worded my question too open
    Help me choose a nice single Mini for an NMM paint job. Why? because I like NMM. I like the look and the process of execution.
    I don't want some mammoth project that will take me so long that sharing the finished article with you guys will be next decade tho

    So not the giant mechanical horse? I'd like to see your NMM take on Angron from Forge World, then
