Mounted Nobel Oak Guard - TBM

Recommended Posts

While I am serious about painting this miniature (and am enjoying the challenge),

I am also using the WIP for a secondary purpose.  I was given a gift of a cellphone

that takes photos of an extremely better "pixelation" than my canon camera.  So as

I paint this miniature, I am learning to take photos at the same time. 

So that said...

Here are a few photos of the Mounted Noble Oak Guard.

at 25mm it can be vexing, so I decided that I would paint a white horse (of course),

and then use orange (gotta keep robinh happy), and I'm doing tough color combo's.

(Gotta make it fun).

 

Here are some photos:

I should just send you a package that has a tub orange paint which explodes all over you when you open it, Robin.  ::P:  :devil:

Jay Makes mental. and physical note:  You give them a better photo, and they become art critics !!

Sheesh !

 

Since I am doing autumnal leaves, more than likely some orange leaves will show up on the oak sprig plume !

Gosh, I forgotten how small 25mm is..ROFL.

Looks great! Ya those photo turned out well. I'm excited to see your transitions!

 

That is the unfortunate side effect of clarity, in my opinion.

If I am dressed for a SAR event I doubt I would be able to tell if I got hit by the paint....

 

Welllll...

 

Now that i think about it I suspect I would....Unless the paint was flourescent 10 mile orange it would just but dull spots on my search gear.... :grr:

I have to admit that the better quality photos show off and display my faults just as well..ROFL.

The nicest part is that if I do something right, I will see it.

Both the horse, and the rider have their eyes painted in on these.

Usually on the 25mm I just let it go...this time they both have brown eyes.

There are about nine coats of white on that horse, a dark, and a mid tone, no highlights yet.

Who made this exceptional mini?

 

This is another from Jay's favorite sculptor Tom Meirer and Thunderbolt Mountain. He also puts this in the tags at the top.  ::D:

Oh, I saw the "TBM," but didn't know what it stood-for. I often miss tags, it seems. I need to pay more attention to those.

 

Thanks!

No problem!  ^_^

 

Not everyone uses them either, so you are forgiven ... this time.  :devil:  ::P:

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.

      I bought this fig a long time ago, with a ton of ideas and options for what to do with him.  Although I'm definitely on Team Cap, I decided to go with an Iron Man look.  I was really happy with how he turned out, especially the sword and faceplate.  I'm considering going back and adding a little bit more gold in a few spots, especially in the back area, but for now I'm satisfied.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
