Wow... Forgotten King looks rather... Heroic!
I can't get over this! The bright blue and white. It changes everything!

Love the look of Kisa. The black armor makes her look more like a fighter.

Cat nose on Kisa is really good. I think I like them better as cat people, not humans with cat ears.

The painted triangle nose solves the cat race look, however I would like to see sculped tringle noses, like the triangle on the Fae Alchemist's forehead, but I know, cat race sculps doesn't going to change.

This is quite the amazing collection you have going on here, Aella.

I love the direction you are taking with your vision of Crystalia. The limited color palette on each figure creates a look that is easy on the eyes, and blends seamlessly with the other components.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! :D

We've finished the Pet Wonders from the Forgotten King set. I painted the two on the left (Mr. Chompers and Miss G. Snorts) and the Hubby painted the four on the right (Lord Gruff, Madam Hilde, The Colonel and Admiral Fuzzybottom).

This means that our Forgotten King set is entirely finished!

You must be so proud of them. They look stunning all grouped together.

This is just awesome! I hope you and your Hubby will also paint some of the extensions and warbands.

Thanks for the compliments!

@The Golem: We're planning to do just that! I've started on the Claws of the Wyrm warband and hubby is finishing up the zombies from Stilt Town.

Pumpkin Patch painted by Aella13. I experimented with a different, more streaky lighting style but I think I’ll stick to my smoother version next time.

Drake Hounds painted by Aella13. I added a little variety to their colouration by giving their extremities a hint of purple.

One Shot painted by Aella13. I really liked the colours in her artwork, so I tried to match her to her card.

Excellent progress. It's very satisfying to have a complete core set painted.
I really like the Pumpkins over exposed colouring.

+1. I bet it must create an interesting contrast with the dark tiles of Von Drakk Manor.

I don't have any new pictures for you guys today, but I do have some news to share. I've started a youtube channel!

I plan to start with the very basics for beginner hobbyists and work my way up to the harder stuff. I have plenty of tips and techniques to share and my aim is to post a minimum of one video a month, but hopefully more often when I have time.

It's my hope that I can help develop the skills of budding painters *fingers crossed* :D

Also, if you haven't seen it yet there's a community painting event going on Facebook at the moment where a bunch of us are all painting Tabbybrook Mages. You have until the end of March if you'd like to join!

Only watched the first couple of your videos, thus far, but, so far, they're very good. Very clear, easy to understand, and follow. But, then, I've been painting for some time, so I'm not really the intended audience.

And, am really glad you stressed the importance of not over-priming. This is one thing I always make a point of going in to in detail with beginner painters. Mainly because I learnt from my own mistakes in the early days, and, so want to share that knowledge and help others avoid the same mistakes I made.

One thing I was surprised you didn't mention was the importance, when spray priming, of not having the spray pointing directly at the miniatures when you start spraying, but slightly to one side.

Anyway, I will be subscribing and am hoping that you cover skin tones at some point, as this is an area I am not confident about (very few figures I've painted in the past have had any skin visible).

I'm catching up with the priming talk, and I have a question.

I saw the video, and it helped me understand a few things. But I still have one question.

When you apply your primer to a very complicated model, it may leave some deep spots totally not-primed, or at some places below the model. For instance the ribs of the rattlebones, the trolls of the Mistmourn Coast have lots of depths that can remain un-primed. What to do in that case ? Cause a very localized spray might be too much, spraying wide could add more primer where it might not be necessary... and finishing it by hand, well as fas as I've tried, I haven't been able to make my Citadel base paints adhere directly on the plastic...

Thanks for any tips :)

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone :D

@Justyn20003: I don't do commissions, sorry. There's just too much on my own painting bench I want to finish, and I have a full time job (and now I'm making videos too!) so I just don't have the time. :(

@Scorpion0x17: Thanks! There were actually quite a few additional tips that I ended up cutting from the final video because it felt a little like information-overload. I might do an additional tips video later on. I'm open to suggestions! As for flesh tones I'm planning a later video on faces, in the meantime you could always ask me here if you have a specific question.

@Millenia: My first question would be, are you scrubbing your model with soapy water? Because the mould release agent can create the effect you've described. You can also buy pots of primer that can be painted onto a miniature by hand if you like. Personally I just give them a good scrub and then tilt the model while spraying to get a faint dusting near those hard to reach places and it's been fine.

Yes I do scrub the models. I can't reach those zones with the primer even scarcely, unless I overcoat the neighboring areas :(

@Millenia: Have you tried using hand-painted primer just in those areas? It might be the solution in this case.
