Re: My work, since 1987...

Very nice colours indeed, Master Milo. - But what is a "non-metal metal colour" ? This leaves me a bit puzzled.

Re: My work, since 1987...

Thanks for kind words.
NMM technique is a painting technique where you never use classic metallic paint colors (iron, silver, gold, bronze,...).

To obtain metallic effects you use only color tones.
For instance, for iron, you apply many layers from black to white using greys between (look Mauhur cimetar for instance).

This is much longer but allows much more shadowing on metallic parts. So this was my 1st try and I feel I will keep on going.

If this was your first try Master Milo I look forward to seeing how you improve with practice - the technique you have applied  looks very effective wink

Re: My work, since 1987...

Hi everyone,

While celebration for my mithril collection and Ori's birthday is on-going, I took some pictures of my collection display as  requested by Master Mornedhel.

Here is full display:
Click to close

Glass Cabinet n1 (M1 to M268 - 54mm LOs & Phaeton range on top shelf)
Click to close

Glass cabinet n2 (M269 to MB396 + LRs - 54mm LOs & Phaeton range on top shelf)
Click to close

Glass cabinet n3 (MB397 to MS587 + LTs - XMAS range on top shelf)
Click to close

(very hard to obtain detailed images. So please forgive very poor quality of images.hmm)
I thought it would be fun to propose a riddle but unfortunately poor images do not allow to play...
Here was my riddle:
I have very few references (around a dozen regular ones) which are not settled yet in glass cabinets. I let you try to find out which ones.
  cool

Yes indeed.
I have around a hundred painted minis, but most of them are in dioramas, not in these "collection" glass cabinets.
So I counted only around 30 individual minis painted hmm

Re: My work, since 1987...

By the way, early 1988, 1989 are all brand new (Except M16 unprimed).
As all parts are still attached to base, I think I should not paint these.

Re: My work, since 1987...

Very nice, Master Milo. It's similar to the way I keep my collection on display. Yes, as Master Ori pointed out, there's a lot of painting still to be done.
