Your First Mini(s)?

Post by Smartah » Tue Feb 08, 2011 10:01 pm

Do you still have the first mini you ever painted? I thought it would be snazzy to get a gander at everyones first painted minis, just to reminisce :)

Yours is a work of art compared to mine...

Very first one

Yes, I'm ashamed to say the first model I ever painted was a smurf...In my defense, I was 7.

@kevin thanks! between the first models and the latest models has been almost 9 years! though it was on again off again for most of it.

i'm really surprised at the quality of the first minis of many people. very impressive!

It was a LotR Orc archer.
I dipped him in flock after I painted him, as camouflage >.>
No idea where he is...

My first miniature was a LotR Uruk-hai. I have absolutely no idea what became of it (probably a trash bin). This had to be close to about 9 years ago when the 2nd LotR movie came out.

My first minis were lost to the warp more than a decade and a half ago. But they were similar to demarcosg's level of quality. I'm impressed by how much better folks seem to be just starting out now days compared to my first attempts.

The ease of finding good tutorials on the internet probably helps quite a bit.
