WOW.
Great work.
The miniatures are all fantastic!!!!
Soooooo envious. Great job and I wish I had a set just like those!

I think that the fact that the minis come unpainted is my single biggest complaint with the CR, WoA, LoD game line. The cards are good, boards solid and colorful, etc, but unpainted minis aren't nearly as cool as painted ones.

Great job, still working on mine :-) 


I do it all by handbrush (so the longer work) , but it is always a great inspiration to see your work, and to become more critical about mine... :-)


What colors did you use for the Drow figurines skin? I am still doubting about how to do those, but yours worked out just perfect... 

Those are awesome, I just started painting my Ashardalon pieces, my first ever attempt at such a thing.

I can tell already it is going to make the game that much better.
Hi bunny snatcher, I use Games Workshop Shadow grey as a basecoat for the skin then a little blue/black ink, simple matter of a little lining with a lighter blue then, might not be the most accurate rendition of drow skin but I find it makes for a great contrast for gaming miniatures Smile


Dcjones, it's surprising how much a little colour can bring to a tabletop game, it can really bring the characters and monsters to life, keep it up and with a little practice should soon be knocking out high quality miniatures in no time


On a slightly different subject someone pointed out a remarkable likeness to me on a different forum. Over here in the UK we have a Bulldog called Churchill who advertises insurance....the resemblance to Errtu Balor is SPOOKY!!!!



     
Oh, I forgot to say, the miniatures from the other box sets are posted somewhere on here but for a handy collection of all 3 sets check out the website here www.tanksandtrolls.co.uk/otherfigurespag... hopefully lots to inspire Wink
wow Errtu Balor is bad @$$
Amazing stuff man.

I wish my painting skillz didnt stop at spray paint cans.  :-( 
how about record a tutorial ?? they are awesome!!! I need to learn that color technique that u used on aschardalon and etturr
I agree completely.  I'd love to see a couple tutorials on how to paint.  I haven't painted since the days of pewter miniatures (was terrible then) so I don't even know where to start...

Did you have any examples for the monsters that you used?  Monster Manual maybe??? 
I've been trying to figure out the best way to make acrylic paint stick. What did you use for primer?

I hear a real key is to wash the mini before painting, so as to completely remove all the oils.

Thanks! Seems to be sticking well now.
do you have to base coat the models first? since the models are a soft plastic does the paint chip?
I used a GW base coat. I did a few stress tests and the paint seems to be sticking well. I haven't seen any cracks or paint chips. Hope that helps.
it does. thanks! I was debating it, but thought it wouldn't work. you have given me new hope (now I just wish I had hope for my painting skills...)
