    Hello everyone!

    I’ve finally decided to show some of the Mithril I’ve painted. Unfortunately I painted them aaaaggess ago, but someday when I have my own house and some time I will paint all the ones that are still in blisters .. Not in the near future though… unfortunately.

    So these have been painted with oil paint. I started using acrylics but at that time there was not much information on the internet so I had my own not great painting technique and some day I saw some Mithril oil painted in some French magazines (Casus Belli and Dragon Magazine). And I was like ‘wow’. Really impressed. So I decided to take the plunge. And started painted with oil using my own techniques again ;). I even had to do a smooth transition from acrylic to oil because I could not figure out how to paint faces with oil only. So at the beginning, my first oil painted Mithril (Silmarien the Mage, I can remember ;)) had the clothes painted with oil and the face with acrylic. Oh well anyways… those I am showing now do not have acrylic on them.

    But as you can see I am not really good as well at doing the base and stuff. Some of you make very awesome dioramas ! I’d like to learn from them :)

    So here we go….

    Thank you very much everyone! That’s really nice to read.

    As you can see, there is still a lot of improvement to be done for instance on the wood bases.
    I bought these wooden ones aaaggess ago and I don’t like them very much. I don’t know what to do to make it look better. I got new ones a couple of years but haven’t managed to use them yet.

    Woud painting with a less transparent color make it better? Varnishing? As well, I saw some dioramas with nice lettering used to display the name of the scene. I’ll need to find on the web some information about that.

    I’ve started browsing the galleries in here, and I am really really impressed. You are really good! I know where I can get some tips for dioramas :)

    There are many treasures in the Art Gallery.
    I recommend you check at least these ones:
    Moria from Turambar,
    Dead marshes from Thingol,
    every Estel’s battle fields
    Ddaine’s unexpected party,
    hfs62’s conversions
    some from me also:P

    And now we even have some professional painting tutorials from Elroi.

    In fact everything is to be checked, but you will need several days !
    Do not hesitate to post your thoughts on it, it is always good to get new & fresh feedback.

    Very nice work celtof. :)

    For information on bases and nameplates and such, check out this forum: http://www.tbforum.co.uk/ They’re based in the UK so they know all the good places to find them and they’re nice guys to boot. Feel free to ask questions there too. :)

    There’s nothing wrong with mixing media – lots of painters do it all the time. :D
