It’s March! How did that happen?
So far this year I’ve painted 18 miniatures. I have a long list of things to get done soon. On that list are a few things that I want to paint to play around with new techniques like object source lighting (OSL) and some non-metallic metal (NMM).
I also want to play around with inks and the translucent minis that I have. I want them to be painted but still see through if that’s even possible. I’ve seen this done before, I think for me it’s just a matter of having the right kinds of paints/techniques to pull it off.
I’ve not attempted either of these things so far and I figure after 3 1/2 years it’s time. I’ve got many different miniatures that I wanted to do OSL on but didn’t want to totally mess everything up and make a fairly nice mini look sub-par by messing around with something I had no idea to do. So with Reaper’s Pathfinder Goblins I’m going to start attempting it.
For the NMM, I’m currently waiting on my BONES 3 Kickstarter to arrive. It is coming with sprues of weapons that I have no real use for otherwise since at this time I have no need/desire to do conversions.
I’m going to try to start posting photos on the regular and maybe even WIP posts for anyone interested in how I go about painting some of the things that I do. I do a lot of these kinds of posts over on the Reaper forums (forum.reapermini.com) in the Craft Corner.
