    Nice work on the Troggoth - very Soperesque in the colour palette.

    Looks great

    @AMRowwwsdower, I didn't use airbrush for the scales. To be honest, this is my least favorite part in my opinion. At the state of the picture that you quoted, I painted them with a blue/grey color, applyed a drybrush of light grey + red glaze between scales, before I applyed a blue+brown wash and highlights on the edges. But I wasn't satisfied with the result so I totally redid that part x).
    Haha, fair enough - I could see how that part might be really tedious and/or a pain to work with the colors on the scales. What approach did you end up taking?

    @Hairster : Thank you , in fact, my colour palette for the troll isn't so different as the one used for my squigs. I just tryed to make it more complex. Anyway, I'm glad that some people like it.

    @Rowwwsdower : That part was a pain indeed ! After my first try, I applied a layer of diluted blue+brown paint, retryed a drybrushing, and started banging my head on the table because the result was disastrous ! I need better brushes for drybrushing, I guess. After regaining my calm, I applied another layer of blue wash and a second of green wash for the shadow areas. Right after, I added highliths again on the edges of each scale, and I fixed mistakes by adding dabs of blue paint, mixed with washes and water. In summary, it was long and tedious, and the result remains a little disappointing, in comparison with the desired goal.

    Haha, I really do hate when one step throws off how you'd like a model to look.

    In all honesty, judging from what I can see in the final pictures, I wouldn't have been able to tell you ran into that trouble at all. The troggoth looks gorgeous, and it's given me some ideas for my own projects!

    I like what I’ve seen of your style. I like how you use definite lines to show volumes & add some texture. Looks a bit like an illustration.

    Thank you mates, I'm trying to refine my technique atm, to obtain a more subtle result. I'll show you that asap.

    This is interesting, you're not the only one to make this remark. I also practice drawing and oil painting on canvas, I think it influences my work on minis, somehow.

    Some progress has been made on skin tones (highlights, warm and blue glases), feet and fabric cloths need more work. Today I spilled half of my black ink Citadel pot... on my current troll! I saved it by throwing it immediately in my water pot (now he can swim). I really hate the retarded design of these pots...

    By the way, I placed a big order of materials and tools, including a new airbrush which will replace my actual and creepy low cost one. I can't wait !

    Seems like you're having "the flow" :-) Very impressive on which speed you're producing those.
    I'm looking forward to my X-Mas vacation in order to catch up a bit.

    Great save there. I have to remember that - I also have a couple of older GW paint pots, and I sometimes use them. They are really badly designed.
    I love the way you shaded the cloth on this last guy, the shading looks super cool.

    Real dynamite paintwork KaL!!!

    you should’ve included in your order a shotgun to blow apart the citadel paint pots.

    A shotgun seems to be the correct solution indeed. Thoses paint bottle are sooooo badlly designed...
    Glad you manage to save it!

    Such a nice paint job, it would have been a shame.

    Thank you ! Well, I was thinking that I spend too much time on my minis haha, because when I see all the task lying in front of me, I'm growing impatient! It also scare me, because I know that I'm not really an armypainter... But I want to finalize that goal !
    To give you an idea of my mess, below is a part of what I have to do (half of the minis aren't on the picture : a part is wainting in their boxes and an other part needs that I strip paint off... But I a keep buying minis ! T_T)

    Thanks Gorb! About the cloth, I started with a dark green, and I added a successive gradients by crossing fine lines on the sides to simulate a fabric texture, before I applied some brown and green glazes. Since thoses steps, I added a brown wash, to darken the shadows (+ some stains, trolls don't do the laundry).

    LMAO, I don't know why I didn't think of that ;p

    Slow progress on the main body (but almost done), I think about applying more glazes on feet to have a softer result. I've also started painting the head :
