ok, so i spent alot of time painting my librarian and i think i did a pretty good job, but then i posted the picture on coolminiornot.com, and my average score i got for the model was a 4 out of 10, where a 5 is decent enough to field on the battle field. this made me kind of upset becuase i tried hard to make it look good but people keep saying its crap. are they telling the truth or are they just being total ass holes.
feedback would be apreciated. any way, heres the pic....
Dude, the folks on cool mini are GODS man. Some are pros. I mean, there are literally people on there that sell minis on ebay. Are you in that league? No, frankly.
Don't let it get to you though, I mean, I think it looks good. Its better than what I can paint, and it's probably better than a lot of folks you'll ever play against.
A friend of mine won Best Army a couple of years ago at the Chicago GT here in the states for his Eldar army. It looks fantastic. He painted galaxy swirls on the front of his wraithlords and stuff like that. It really is breathtaking.
He put a pic of it up on coolmini and it got a 7.
We all carry on,
When our brothers in arms are gone.
So raise your glass high
For tomorrow we die,
And return from the ashes you call.
Don't let them get you down man, that librarian is awsome. I'm seriously wishing I could paint that well. I mean, I'm not terrible but I know I need some work. I was at a mega-battle yesterday (for the start of medusa V, it was epic) and a good half the models on the table were paint worse than that. There were some pretty spectacular pieces too, but nothing that would put this model to shame.
Cheer up friend, you are far from a crappy painter, maybe not Golden demon winner quality (and so few of us are), but far from the shlock brigade.

I recon it looks quite good. It's a little hard to tell because of the pic, but it seems to be done well. I'd definitely say it's above gaming quality (for my standards any). Yeah, and as deadmarsh said, there are some freaky painters on cool mini. I wouldn't let it get to you. Every model you paint imporves your skills. Keep up the good work!
I think your photo is half your problem.
I can't see any detail from it....and the Devil's in the detail

Ok, from what I can see, there's lovely highlighting on the barrel, nice cape and the axe is pretty good too. I think they were harsh. That's miles above table gaming quality. Not a winner as others have said but a good leader for deffo. Keep painting!
Don't let the ******** get you down!
Are the heads on your gk's iron warriors? Just asking.
Eldrad is the greatest among us, he is the sun which eclipses the light of our stars.
He is Ulthwe.
Forelli's gonna get ya!
yes, the grey knight heads ar iron warrior heads.
also, when i submitted it i wasn't expect something great, somewhere inbetween a 5 or a 6, but i was just shocked when some people said it was not even tabletop quality. whatever, anyway thanks for all the possitive feedback, at least now i know i'm an alright painter.
ill tell you what, man. its good in my opinion, and i wish i could paint half as well. my army looks like ****, and i still gave attention to each piece. i agree with a previous statement that it could be the picture. it does seem a bit out of focus (or i lost a contact again)
based on what ive seen when playing i would give it about a 7.5
you were probably judged by overconfident assholes who paint for a living, dont let it get you down.
I think it's like... well I can't rate it because I don't know what to compare it to, it's as good as anything I've painted
Could use more color depth, like ink washes or more higlights.
