(Non-DF) Some painted wizards 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
I've talked about a few wizards here, but I haven't shown pics, so I finally got some painted up, I thought I'd show what I was talking about.

One is the Reaper "Wizard and Apprentice" set, which is just a great set for people like me, who want accessories as much as we want figures. The wizard, his boy, the table, and the giant book being held by the goblin, are all in the same blister.

The others are all the new GW Empire wizards, from the same basic set (I bought two, see my rant in Gaming forum to hear the details). I really love what you can do with these, though of course the end results always look vaguely similar. Lots of neat wizarding accessories, though, and good poses.

Enjoy! I promise to have these in a DF wizard's tower ASAP!

Oh, and quick point -- I think the first pic of the Reaper wizard is a good example of "don't give up, keep going," my advice to new painters in the Gaming section. Looking at his feet, this close up, I'm realizing how terrible they are. I didn't spend TOO much time on any of these, I simply haven't HAD time. But while I would once have seen those feet and sighed, and figured I wasn't a very good painter -- now I see them and think, "OK, add a wash, do some drybrushing, make them look crisper, and then add a light wash and some touchups to the base around them, to bring out the contrast more sharply."

There's almost ALWAYS something you can do to fix up a problem. You NEVER have to accept a figure you aren't satisfied with...
