So finally started on Lanyssa. Initial plan was to have warm colors with a cloak of fallen leaves.
A big life lesson I’m beginning to lear is: spending too much time thinking things through is just as bad as not spending enough time. I’ve spent so much time thinking how I want to do this mini and as I start I’m already disappointed. I need to start pushing myself to execute on things a little bit before I think I’m ready or I wind up with lost enthusiasm and frustration.

Compete with gratuitous coffee shot Got 3-4 newer minis lined up in the back. Should be finishing up mini #3 and #4 over the next day or so and getting them on there bases. Then its on to new stuff!

Minis #3 & 4 almost done. Old Grenadier and Ral Partha stuff. Looking kinda banged up. Really like how the armor came out, decent blending on the blue tunic. Tried my hand a NNM for the sword so my swords look like I was trying out NMM for the first time.
Also tried putting a mirror under the mini to help with the lighting. Seems to help but thinking I need another light.
Got a couple more old minis in the pipeline behind them and then I’ll be starting recent minis.
