Here I’ll post my progress regarding my DE army.

I’m starting off with a manticore which I just finished. I plan on entering it in a local painting contest. I even tried my hand at some non-metallic metal for the first time.

Comments and criticism is appreciated. There deadline is in a couple of days, so I have some time to fix flaws or make small changes.





Edit: How do I post images?

That's nice work. I like the metalwork, well done. Good luck with the competition!

I think over all this is a very good piece. Taking it to the next level you might want to consider;

1. Glazing some colours on his skin, and the armour too?
2. Some spot colours could be picked out e.g the cloak scales could be brighter, his head band a more vivid colour, the Manty's eyes a crazy bright choice, the band on the weapon shaft made red instead
3. The rocks could be weathered a little.

These are all small touches that, I think, would elevate an already well done model.

Good luck!

Thanks! That's some great advice.

I actually did many of those things (glazing a little red on the skin and purple on the armour, the scales were highlighted, the manticore's eyes are yellow and the rocks were given some brownish wash), but looking at the pictures again, I now realize, that it just isn't enough. I was way too conservative, too afraid I would ruin it. I'll add more contrast and colour and give an update.
