I started this guy as one of my first forays into NMM. The axe blade was my first go at Steel NMM. I think I did a reasonably good job with the range of contrast, although now that a few *ahem* years has gone by, I need to take the highlights up even further and a bit of color in the midtone range would be nice. The NMM gold quickly overwhelmed me--the filigree was too complicated and the project quickly stalled. If (I mean when) I give NMM gold another try, I'll start with some simpler designs.
AOBR Orc Boss:
Da Boss is a few years old as well. I started out strong and rapidly created a nice scratch built base for him. After that...well I didn't like how he sat on the base after looking at it more. The base may be utilized for another mini in the future, but I don't think the boss will see any more paint until I design another base I like better for him.
Reaper Muskateer Mouseling:
Not sure what happened here. I picked him out for a quick paint job since he is such a tiny thing. I guess it took longer than anticipated and something new came along.
This was originally intended to be a gift for a coworker, but I had difficulty finding the motivation to complete him and he subsequently took another job, which dropped my motivation even further...
This one was a victim of ReaperCon 2013. When I found out I was going to ReaperCon this year, I dropped this project to begin that one. Unlike most of the shelf, he actually has a reasonable possibility to being revived. Now that ReaperCon is over, I have been toying with getting back at him. Unfortunately for him, I may go to GenCon this year and I have some ideas for that...
But enough for the somber musings of half painted miniatures. I would like to welcome Paradox0n to the blog! I took a quick look over at his blog at http://paradox0n.blogspot.com/. He has some nice tutorials over there as well as some handy reviews that I'll be looking into later. Thanks, Paradox0n!
And welcome to all the others that are following along but keeping a low profile :)
