    Nice! I´d only suggest linking to the actual post, and not to the top of the page (you can get the link for each post clicking on the small number by the "like" button) ;)

    I love your bases. The models (although not my style) are nice as well.
    I can't really tell if those are real reflections on the armor or if they are painted. If it is the latter: Wow! Those look very natural.

    Btw how do you make the flowers/cotton things?

    The reflections on the spears, sword etc are painted, the flowers are from a supplier I use on ebay.

    The dread looks cool!
    The elf, too... bad thing with the clear coat... would be really pissed off, too. Maybe this will help calm down your mood:

    That is so frustrating. It's one of my biggest fears when it comes to painting.

    I had the same problem when humidity was high, so don't varnish when it's raining....my models came out as if I had blown flour about them, although the space where i varnished was sheltered. I can understand your mood...

    Aw, dang. That really stinks for your elf. The Dread Saurian looks great though!

    Perhaps semi-gloss instead of mat spray next time?
