I feel you, faces can be the worst. I really messed up Celestine's with a big blob of technical paint. But some Biostrip with a toothbrush made it possible to just strip the face and leave the rest of the mini. Maybe worth a try?

Excited for the ogre, love his skin tone, which colors did you use?

I'll have to gave it a try, hopefully I'll be able to strip just her mouth because I quite like the job I did on her eye.

The Ogre skin is a base of Vallejo Dwarf Flesh mixed with Vallejo Cold Grey, shaded with Reikland Fleshshade and then highlighted with the Dwarf Flesh/Cold Grey again and Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh/Cold Grey.
I wanted to show the effect eating the undead was having on him, and it worked better than I thought it would.


Another mini finished, the Sewer Golem (Twisted):-





Took a while, but I'm really happy with him and his fishing buddy!

Ogre is getting there slowly too:-



Gotta go faster if I ever want my Cursed City set painted though.

Also pulled Minx out of the cupboard of unfinished things:-



Once she's done I'll to back and try to salvage Swamp Girl.

Swamp Girl does have quite the odd expression. Sewer Golem is amazing. A great model for you with your knack for picking out all the little details. Ogre is shaping up nicely.

Thanks for the info on the ogre skin!

Love all the details on the Sewer Golem, such a weird model and painted up great by you!

Thanks guys! Yeah, had a lot of fun painting the Golem.

Got another mini finished Minx (Guild Ball):-



Admittedly she was already mostly painted from a couple years, but at least she's done now, should've painted bigger spots on her cape though or more of them.

Didn't quite get the Ogre done though:-



Still needs his trousers painting.

Also decided to get a little bit more Guild Ball done with Hammer:-



He was a mass of mold lines, that I didn't do a great job of tidying up, but he doesn't look too bad.

Managed to get the Ogre (Cursed City) finished:-


Really happy with how he's turned out.

Didn't get much more painting done though, it's that time of year where I talk myself into trying to get all my Guild Ball minis built.
It won't happen this time either, there's still too many and I'm not that good at assembling metal dudes, but I'll get a little closer.

I love the bright cloth, don't usually see ogres with such fine drapery!

Fantastic looking ogre - the Cursed City minis are truly wonderful

Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys!

As expected, didn't get all my Guild Ball minis built (trying to get Original Minx's stick-thin arms to attach at the elbows pushed me too far), but I got another 20 or so done.

So back to painting, there's some more Cursed City stuff, Skeletons:-



Doing them in pairs so I don't have to face the horror of batch painting.

Also in the mood for painting something big, so Goatman returns:-



Not sure if I'll get him finished, but I'll try.

Didn't get much painting done (Had builders in making a mess) but I did get my skeletons (Games Workshop) finished:-



They should make a nice group if/when I get the rest done.

Also got my goatman's head finished and attached:-



Now I just need to paint up lots and lots of swirly armour.

New to the table, I got my next bit of Cursed City:-



Jelsen - Gritty Vampire Hunter.

And:-



Head Robo-nun (minus her head for now).

Those skeletons are lovely, especially the subtle corrosion on the shields.

Purple and patina are a wonderful combo. They look great. Robo nun is an exciting project.

OMG, so excited for head robo-nun and what scheme you will use. She and some of the Paragon Warsuits are on my list for later in the year, when I'm done with the 30 sisters I have in different stages lying around.

Final Ogre shots are great!

Thanks guys! Glad everybody likes my skellies!


Been struggling to put brush to mini at the moment, finally managed to get something done though, Sakana (Guild Ball):-



Guild Ball minis always manage to inspire me for some reason, not quite sure what's next though.

Great bright colors on him, love the purple/blue contrast. We could discuss his hipster beard, but he'll probably skewer anyone who tries

Thanks! Apparently it's meant to be a pirate beard not a hipster one.


Still hunting for my painting mojo, so I'm just working on any mini that holds my attention, at the moment that's Lysette (Reaper):-



Unfortunately, my camera is objecting to her light blue hair and throwing all the colours off, she's looks quite a bit better in hand.

She looks good from here, too.

Still picking off minis out of the Cupboard of Unfinished Things, this time it's Tirinha Fallowheart (Reaper):-



Lost interest in this one previously because her details aren't great (I think she's a bit miscast), so I just did a basic job to get her finished.

Nothing finished but at least I'm painting a bit more!

Giant Goat-man has returned from the Cupboard of Unfinished Things:-



As has Gladiator:-



And I've started one of those fancy new AOS Orcs:-



Everything is coming along nicely but slowly.
