Stripped all my old minis and I'm giving it another go
« on: 12 August 2022, 18:10:34 »
20 years or so since I painted a mini, and it's probably not much better than my adolescent attempt, but I had a good time.

Lanceman, that's a very clean design - you've got the paint exactly where you want it. Good work!

Drop me a line if you want to talk simple ways to get a little more pop out of your minis. I'm always happy to go on about low-effort good-result techniques!

Hey, it's Marik Militia. And a very nice example at that. Kudos all around!
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

It looks great!  I really like the contrast of the blue on one side red on the other

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I ended up doing a few more this weekend (and taking another trip to the hobby store).

Since it got hidden there: My Amphigean Light Assault Group inspired Dragon Fire.
