This thread is for gamers to show off their painted models for their RPGs and wargames and to offer advice and commentary.
I'll get the ball rolling with my most recent completions: Tomb Blades, Deathmarks, Imperial Space Marine

I think you posted them in the 40K thread but I will say it again, I do really like the Deathmarks.
I will repost my DeviantArt gallery of models (under one of my old pseudonyms) in this thread for anyone who is interested.

Got my painting station set back up today and got some work done...got a lot of Trazyn's metallics done and completed Imotekh. I just wish the drybrushed highlights I'd put on his cloak would've shown up better...that'll teach me to varnish in between stages.
Love the lightning effect on the cloak.
Thanks. I'm going to have to get a different brush for that work, all my super-fine detail brushes split too easily and keep me from having thin lines.
Although I haven't tried it myself, I have talked to people who have gotten good results from using thin pens for such work.
Something of a blast from the past, I recently painted the Barbarian Hero from HeroQuest and I think he turned out rather well.
I've got two questions for this thread.
One, does anyone have recommendations for good paints to use for the younger set? My 3-year old got her first mini (one of the low-end plastic Bones models, of a dragon), and she wants to paint it. I'm only familiar with washable watercolors on the parenting end; hoping to get advice for something safe but a bit more permanent for this.
Two, as you may surmise by the question above, I'm not really all that great at art in general. In fact, when I run, I usually dip into my large collection of toys for miniatures. Does anyone want to see pics of the Lego minifigs I use for my sessions?
I don't know about your first question but I don't see any reason why you shouldn't share the Lego stuff you use. It sounds interesting.
You might try Reaper paints. They generally don't need thinning so that's one less step for your future Golden Daemon winner to have to mess with. Bring those Lego pics on.
Looks like Conan.
Almost finished with my Flayed Ones, pics soon.

Thanks for the. He was from the same decade as the first Conan film so that is appropriate.
Flayed Ones are done.
Nice I particularly like the one with the mask and the shears.
Thanks. I had fun painting them, but trying to clean the flash off was a bitch, and I broke pieces two or three times during assembly. This is one pack that definitely needs a plastic kit. Gonna pick up at least one more kit and paint those with varying skin tones and some that are kinda rotten instead of fresh.

You should do at least one with a Salamanders skin tone
Oooh...man, that's putting my armies against each other. Might try that.
Finished Trazyn the Infinite. Gonna work on my Cryptek next.
Looks good I like the cloak, and the darker lower legs are interesting.
Before Christmas I painted the old Assault on Black Reach Captain as Captain Jonas of the Imperial Fists' 7th Company.
Thanks. It's probably the lighting that's making his legs look dark; I use the flashlight on my phone to make up for the shadows in that spot.
Nice work on Capt. Jonas...so many ways to interpret that face.
Yeah, I'm not great at faces so they tend to come out a bit random. That's why I played undead in Fantasy
Finished my Cryptek. Gonna start on the Vindicare next.
Looking good I like the blue very much, it works very well.
Thanks. It was total guesswork on the color scheme, I was almost going eenie-meenie-miney-mo at the FLGS's paint display.
Anyone got recommendations for doing a Khornate/World Eaters color scheme with P3 paints?
Unfortunately, no, I'm completely unfamiliar with P3's line.
