18th post - Gandalf!
Well, here we are with number 12, Gandalf!
I wasn't really happy with his face but I think that in the overall the mini is not that badly painted :)
For this mini I used six Army Painter paints and three brushes:
- Brushes - Insane Detail, Small Drybrush and Highlighting;
- Matt Black;
- Matt White;
- Leather Brown;
- Barbarian Flesh;
- Plate Mail Metal;
- And Quickshade Strong Tone ink.
My final rate on the brushes got to be 10/10. It really is the most wanted Brush set!!!!!
For the paints, I'm a fan of the dropping method so, this is one favor point, but the big thing (for me) about this paints is that they're hugely pigmented. I like a lot of this paints, and the Army Painter got themselves a new costumer here!
The downside of this paints is the consistency of them in the container. For a good result you'll have to shake it really well, but after that, I can assure you that they work really fine with awesome results!
Final rate on the paints: 8/10.
|The Barbarian Flesh I used was for the basecoat of the skin, giving it another kind of flesh tone for the highlights.|
