Very good work on display, especially like the Dragons.

I am looking forward to seeing how various people choose to do the miniatures for Myth, and the flood of painted images that are likely once the game starts to hit peoples homes.

I have not really painted miniatures for a long time, so Myth is me coming back to the world.  I will not be rushing into paining the miniatures, as I want to take my time in deciding the course to take first, and gaining as many ideas as possible from here and other sites.

These minis are awesome and a fantastic paint job.

However, I must admit - as an amateur photographer - I appreciate the camera work more :P
Typo free since 2015.

Those minis look wonderful; Myth will be my first attept at painting, but if it does not wok out or if I just do not like it then I might take you up on that offer of painting.
I thought I read somewhere that you live in the Netherlands and I was wondering how much I woud need to travel in that case; I'm from Breda myself.

Really? Breda?
I honestly didn't think to find someone from my home town here.

Wonder if we know eachother.

Yeah, I remembered that, notice that I avoided saying that you are Dutch :). Rotterdam is not that far of a trip, we'll see once the game actually arrives.

@Voivod: no idea, but I do not know that many people that are into miniatures(this is my first ever minature boardgame) and I most of my friends do not even know about Kickstarter I think...
At the moment I'm actually living in Glasgow, I will be back in Breda at the end of June.

I've checked your profile and the name doesn't ring a bell.
Give me a shout when your back. We could meet up if you're interested.

Maybe once the game here we could have a go with all dutch mythologists.

Lot of dutch people for such a small community.

You can always have Skolos do the Heroes as a "proof of concept" while you do the minions. The heroes are the most important figures, but they'll be the hardest to paint (especially the !@#!%@ eyes!).

Minions are much easier:
* Spray prime in white.
* Color eyes red.
* Wash in brown to form shadows.
* Underpaint and glaze / basecoat in THIN layers of paint.
* Wash in brown to restore shadows.
* Paint metals.

Minions from easiest to hardest:
* Skeletons
* Ratmen and orcs w/out metals
* Ratmen and orcs w/ metals
* Elementals

Consider getting the various Reaper Learn to Paint Kits, after they're revised for their Bones lines. Vallejo Air Model Silver metallic looks the easiest to work with.

probably shouldn't have used this thread for this. Sorry for hijacking it.
Everyone continue pouring praise on Skolo's paintjobs, please.

Nice clean job there. Especially good job on the eyes.
