Hey guys,

My name's Patrick, I'm a painter based in Melbourne and I run a little miniature painting service called Brush Bro. Studios. Usually I sit on the sidelines, but I'd like to get a bit more involved these days.

So I present to you my entry to the Oz Painters Challenge

Shield Maiden

Image
Image

The Shield Maiden by Nuts Planet is a 1/10th scale bust and my first time painting a figure larger than the usual 32mm. It presents the painter with a fantastic opportunity to explore a wide variety of materials and painting techniques.

There is female skin, allowing you to practice subtle wet blending between tones.
There is leather, allowing you to practice using glazing over zenithal priming to maintain a leather-like texture underneath.
There is metal, allowing you to practice the unique distribution of lights and shadows on metallic surfaces.
And finally there is wood, allowing you to practice creating textures with freehand.

I highly recommend this sculpt along with a fantastic painting tutorial by Ben Komets of Painting Buddha for painters of all levels looking to improve!

Oh, and you can also vote for the Shield Maiden on P&P http://pnp.li/GFFe

Thanks!

Greetings, the name's Russell - long time painter (think Heroquest and 2nd Edition Warhammer 40K), first time poster.

Currently enjoying painting fantastic Corvus Belli 28mm Infinity models - and presenting one I've finished for this Open comp - a power-armoured Al Fasid Heavy Infantry of the Haqqislam faction.

I've been trying to grow my painting skills of late - and unlearn bad habits from years of batch painting GW models - and for this model I've worked on improving smoother layering and zenithal highlighting, along with trying to work on basic NMM techniques on the weapons and power armour servos. Although not as apparent on this model than on other recent ones, I've also been experimenting with using washes in unusual colour combinations part way through the layering - for example the grey leg pieces have a brown wash midway through, which (under better photographic conditions, I promise!) gives an oily, used appearance to the end product - instead of a crisp, straight out of the factory look. I've discovered this technique also works well for making leather coats looks like Driza-Bones too!

P.S. Patrick that Shieldmaiden is phenomenal - the skin epescially, bravo.

Hi troops, having followed the site for years, here's my first attempt.
All aussie influence, figs by Victoria Miniatures, Back-to Basixs bases & landscaping materials sourced locally.
Wanted to depict an actual penal :lol: :oops: squad resplendent in convict garb, toting crappy lasguns with shives of wood tied on. Cannon fodder for the empire.

Thanks for looking.
