Those look awesome!

I see the Flash (the plastic seam from the mold) on your fire giant. Prior to painting use a razor blade to remove it, to prevent it from leaving a line down your miniature.

Best of luck!

Thanks. I try to catch the flashing when it's obvious, but apparently missed that one. Curse my aging eyes!

Have you considered using some sort of magnification while painting? A lot of folks use Optivisors or some other kind of magnifier. I personally disassembled a couple of those tabletop magnifiers with the alligator clips on articulated arms to hold things and frankensteined together a nice long articulated arm with a 5X magnifying glass on it.
One thing you can do is use your camera to check your work - take pics of the areas you're painting and make notes of where you've make mistakes, then go back and touch them up. If your camera has a viewscreen on it, keep it nearby as you work and snap pics as you go to check your work.

I use a combination of things: dedicated glasses, magnifying glass, etc. I do sometimes go back and touch up minis after I've taken close up pictures. However, for the most part a lot of the things you see in these close up photos are not very noticeable at "Tabletop" viewing -- which is what I'm going for. (But the perfectionist in me still tries to improve techniques as I go along.)

Thanks!

After a long break, able to get back to some painting! I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this model, but based on horn placement, I went with :
"Gargantuan Corrupted Bronze Dragon"

I've also decided to add this to my "for sale" collection. Check them out right here on EN World's Sell & Buy board. Thanks.

A quick Orc Horde (painted with my son):

And my 10 yr old daughter wanted in on the action too:

Should I be worried about "the cool blood on his swords"? :cool:
