Painted some shadowed path minis

Recommended Posts

Beautifully done! Do you use a matte finish on your minis? The reason I ask is that I love the metallic sheen you were able to preserve on the weapons and armor. Just curious what kind of finishes you use.

Thanks! :)

Yes, but I apply all metallics last, after giving them a coat of matte varnish for that very reason. Metallics are usually pretty heavy so they can usually stand a little bit of wear and tear. If I wanted to play extra safe I guess I could either apply a metallic coat before the wash too or apply gloss varnish with brush over them metallics but for table quality that's a bit over my time budget :)

Painted Arwen the other day to try out some new paints.

Interesting. Everyone has a different approach! I’m curious if brushing a satin finish over the matte spray would give me the look I’m going for with the metallics.
At any rate, great job with Arwen. Is that contrast paint you used for the robe?

Thanks.
Nah, it's kimera kolors. I just got them so this was a test model to test them out. Had a bit trouble with the white, so anything that had white mixed into it got a bit thick and chalky (skin tones, headdress, highlights).

These look great, I modeled my Shadow men on yours though I lightened them a bit. Also went with that look for Arwen since I think your more elegant/noble look is a lot better than the herbalist/wanderer look the card/people in general seem to go for.
