Empire of the Petal Throne update - Palanquin set finished? Plus a couple of Heroes Miniatures.....


Well, I've attempted to paint a carpet / tapestry design......does this work? Any C&C / suggestions welcome before the varnishing phase.......




Also managed to pick up another Heroes Miniature. Haven't id'd it as yet but time will tell. Tony Yates sculpt from the 80s. Lovely old school.


I painted this Heroes Mini a while back but don't think I've posted it yet. GH4 Professor from the Nightmare World of Monstrous Evil range......I'm always looking to fill gaps in my collection so let me know if you find any!

This looks really good - I love the carpet! What kind of paint do you prefer for the silver trim on the priest's shoulder 'pauldrons'? I used to use Pactra metallic silver enamel, back in the day, but I thought that there's got to be a better and more modern paint that I could use - and that's you'd know about, being a better painter then me!

This looks really good, and it's an inspiration to get to work on the set I have! Wonderful!

I left the pauldrons black so far. Couple of coats of black overall and then a few built up highlights with a black /sky blue mix. I'm trying to capture the black paint jobs I see across the internet and this is the closest I have come. I'll have to work on the silver highlights. Probably be a build up of black / silver. Nothing exotic for me...I still use the same paints I'e had for decades!

Gotcha! I like the black/blue mix; it looks a lot better then straight black, especially for a matte black 'fabric' area. I admire your patience, too!

(Just had a thought: Do you want to see the photos I took of the Professor's miniatures collection? I have them on-line in a dedicated web site... I keep forgetting that they're there, like the fool that I am...)
