It’s fun to paint bright green for a change of pace.

Wow, these ladies were fun to paint. The hair in particular was fun. RMS Carrottop Red, Harvest Brown and Blond Shadow, all of them highlighting up to Blond Highlight. Metal was VMC Oily Steel with P3 Armor Wash + Agrax Earthshade (2:1 or 3:1), then highlighted with P3 Quicksilver. Skin was directional highlighting + DR Burnt Umber ink. Main skirt was highlighting + a mix of green and brown ink (to create a dark brown).
I tried out my new static grass applicator. It made a giant mess, but at least the grass looks nice, and did a decent job of getting up underneath (next time I’ll apply the grass before gluing the figure).
Against a different background:
Finally finished Brun and Lug! I’m very happy with how they turned out. The green backdrop always seems to ruin my pictures, so I might try taking pictures against the purple backdrop.
I’m thinking about making one or both a ReaperCon entry, so I might make some more updates (any suggestions would be welcome!).
A 1-point mercenary solo I’ll be throwing into the occasional Khador list, when I’m a point short. He repairs jacks.
I painted up the miniature fairly quickly (I’m taking this week off work, so I had plenty of time to work on him today), but it was a surprisingly fun sculpt. I think he’s got a lot of character, with that hat, tools tucked everywhere and the cigar. I got to use lots of different metallic paints, and I also tried out VMC Dried Rust effects. I’m kinda meh on it, but it’s definitely better than trying to do it with regular paints.
