They look good. I've noticed people using a slightly darker primer, then they do a really quick squirt of lighter primer from above to make more of a transition.

For a couple of hours' work, they look great! I bet the group were chuffed to bits all having painted minis.

I've been pretty sidetracked from my Craftworld Eldar and my Aelves!

Some minis I've painted for general use:




These were more resin reaper minis. I still had to straighten out the valkyrie's weapon when I took the photos, but some warm water and a little bending did the trick.

My latest work on some minis for Warhammer Fantasy RPG:



This old school sigmarite priest mini is ready for combat! the tiny warhammer pales in comparison to what GW makes today.


I've also worked on my perry bros Hwacha/Shingijeon historical Korean rocket artillery minis. The platforms themselves are done, and now I just need to paint the crew:





Re: the High Elves, I've done some base coating on a couple of my Phoenix Guard, but nothing worth photographing yet.

Cool stuff! The DnD minis look like they were fun to paint; especially the cat.

The Eldar are a bit darker & dirtier (like they've been deployed for a long time) than I'm used to seeeing but it gives them a more grizzled feel, and it works really well for them.

What's next in line to be painted?

These look pretty cool! Don't really play D&D myself, but I am into the lore and books somewhat, so I can appreciate these :)! Great job, looking forward to what's next!

Fantastic stuff Blazinghand!  I especially like the rocket batteries!  Looking forward to seeing what comes next!  :)

Now that we're on lockdown out here, I've been able to work on the Samurai Chaos Lord conversion I've been planning for a while...

That looks pretty sweet, Blazinghand! Cannot wait to see the finished model! Him drawing the blade out of the scabbard is so samurai 8).

Looking good BH. Are you going to try for a top knot?

I've decided to try something a bit more free-flowing, using the Space Wolf Conversion Kit head with the long hair.



Other than that, the main conversion is replacing the left arm with the Reiver "drawing a combat knife" left arm. To make the blade seem longer, I cut off the end of the sheath and added another sheath to it.

I like it, it has pizzazz! Choice of head is cool and the sheath, such a good idea. Can't wait to see him based and all.
