I just got around painting the spider from the base set, and wanted to ask for opinions whether I should paint the rest of it in another color, or leave it as is.

I know my skills are not up to par with the rest of you guys painting and showing off, but at least it's better than the dull grey. Here's how he looks right now:

From gallery of Merkillinen


Primarily the head and the butt are the parts I'm pondering whether I should cover the black with something else. Other parts I think are fine as is, though probably another coat is needed for most of the parts.

Nice job! I think it's fine the way it is now.
BTW. You might get more responses from the miniature painters guild, or this what are you painting at the moment thread.

Thank you! It's always amazed me that there's no sub forum for miniature painters here, but I guess that the guild works for that, it's just way more hidden than the other forums.

Personally I find you are doing a great job.

I would not change the color black to anything else as I feel most spiders are black and that also adds to the menace.

Personally I'd rather darken up the legs to match the body, but everyone has his vison as to how a particular figre is supposed to look.

This one is mine for example...
