Ogre kingdom Tyrant

  It was one of the most difficult work for me. I do not know why. Maybe just because it's big. And all my painted NMM looked strange and unnatural.So I had to paint it in metallics. I haven't a lot of experience in TMM. So I'm so grateful for my mentor's advices - Landreth. We are working now in a "gym"where I study and learn a lot from me teacher. Thank you, Artem. 
And now I think that the second ogre would be easier to paint :).

Dwarf King Alrik and Shieldbearers

   I've done this guys for the game, so I did not use any difficult techniques. And two coats of vanish - to grab them by hands :).
   The were a lot of problem with assembling this pyramid - it  should stand on two separate small bases! Actually, I was in agony to set them straight, because I didn't think about it before painting! And one more - it was hard to set on the king on the shield because of these patterns. In result his foots don't stand
tight and you can see a gap below. But for detail - it's a great miniatures. Especially I was pleased with the hair.
    So, the king:

 And with corrected bases:

Griffin Thallions. Confrontation

 It was a real pleasure to work on this unit. I used a  Thor's guide about the cracked leather again an now I like the result. To my mind it looks very well on large surfaces.

Spam from my "workshop"

I remeber a time when I couldn't start new work without finishing current one. Now it's a chaos. I have about dozen minis(including projects) in work in the same time. So I have not any free time (when one work is drying, for example).
That is what going on my workspace and I know that I will start a pair of new minis this week:

And this is my permanent and old fans: beauty Alexiz and  Worm-Barbariska:

Borgut Facebeater

  This is my first WH FB Orc. To my mind there is no difference with WH 40K Orks except guns. 
  I've decided to use "Dmitry's style" here :). He didn't publish his last minis on coolmini but he has a loot of really good works. I tried to repeat his Оrk in my interpretation. He called this technique "speed painting" but I spend a lot of time for it. Before I wanted to use such kind of metal for my Tau Crisises and Broadsides (five of them are waiting my hands) and now I think about how much time I will do it! :)  But eyes are fearing and hans are doing. Now I have an expirience, may be Dmitry will give me some comments, advises and ... secrets (of course, I'll ask hin about it :)). And I can do it!
 So here is my funny yellow orc:

Alahan Standard-Bearer. Confrontation.

   For a long time I was looking for a color scheme for this flag bearer. Frankly speaking, if I "don't see" a miniature in my headselecting a color scheme takes me a lot of time. This is one of the most difficult step for me because it affects on the future presentable of all work. 
   After some trials-errors I get satisfied with light blue-gray scheme with purple and orange accents.  Hope you'll like it too.
