Did a mini for a friend of mine

Thanx guys. Good tips, but I decided to leave it be and go for my next model.
This is only a work in progress where the backpack and base is missing. I'll also need to do some brush ups and detailing. (Tomorrow night).
Trying to make a nice camo on the cloak was a bit difficult.

I painted up a 'normal' mini without to much details on it. It was quite fun... much green on this one.
The only thing I wanted to do was adding some high grass to add the feeling of cover... but don't know what to use as nothing I found was high enough.

As always... give me the hard cold truth... anything you can tell me that will make my minis look better next time is very much appreciated.

|Djinn24||I also use series 7 brushes, i recommend getting The Masters Brush Cleaner. This stuff is awesome and really does clean well. I personally recommend never letting paint get above halfway up on the bristles. While you can get paint out od the furrel its not easy and does take time. It's bad enough that the normal wicking of the brush pulls paint into it, providing a shorter path just makes it easier for the paint to get there. You will eventually want to get a size 2. My standard use brush is my size 2 as series 7 tend to run a bit small.|

2) This isn't a huge deal as long as you remove the dried paint after every session, not letting it really set up in the bottom of the bristle bunch.
3) Much to my wife's chagrin, as she thinks it is gross, I do use the saliva trick to make sure the brush is returned to its original shape after cleaning it with water.
Now that that is out of the way, new guy is looking good.
