Hero or Goat?

Ever since I started to publish the how to articles on the Mierce Miniatures Beastman series, I thought people would get a kick out of seeing what the finished miniatures looked like.

As a bit of a refresher, here is how they began, using the Badger Stynlrez primers in the "Primer Painting" technique.

The subsequent painting process played out over 4 episodes, showing how to utilize the Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering paints for the metals, fur, skin and even a banner.  Since those paints are really designed for working in more of a watercolor style, they really make me feel at home!  

This image shows how the rust and other weathering turned out... here's a link to that stage:

If I get the opportunity, I will try to paint something like this unit in oils.  While many of the principles are the same, there are certain physical differences in the paint and the way it can be utilized.  So, if there seems to me more oil painting on the blog, or especially in the upcoming Facebook live sessions, this is why!

Pledging to the Patreon page really helps me to do more of the live sessions, where I try to conduct as many "live experiments" as I can.  Even I learn a lot from those!
