I've been working on the 25mm miniatures for the last month, and I decided I needed some play time.

SO, I saw King Richard The Lion and thought it would be a fun project !

I did NOT notice the tail when I decided to get him, and now I am roaring about it standing in the rear

of the sculpt so tall and proud.  He is primed and I just gave him a black ink wash.  I want all those details

to be staring at me.

 

Off we go !

 

Here are some photos of him as I begin.

ooooooh!   another royal...  Is he vying for the attention of her frogginess the Queen! 

 

 

I see a need for some royal purple in this one..  (no orange... I repeat NO Orange)

 

what is the size of this one... looks like a normal 28 or 30 mm ...?

 

Oh as a side note... Robin  is short for Richard  :devil:

I am totally amazed that I actually got some painting time in today.

After working on the mowing yard, trimming, cutting back weeds in the garden,

and working three hours on that stuff, I had my doubts.

 

Fortunately, I really adore this "King Richard The Lion" and wanted to start base

coloring him.  Well, I've got his Chain mail in, and five coats of Imperial Purple on his robes.

Already am liking the direction he is going in.

I'm using a 50/50 water, paint solution, SLOWLY building up that Purple.

When I am happy with that color, I will put in a medium intensity purple and hold

highlighting till last.  First time I have had a miniature that always has a hand grip somewhere !

LOL

 

Here's King Richard.

now that is a nice deep shade of purple.. really starting the ROYAL vibe on this one.  I also see you have gone with a golden mane.

Its going to get deeper as I layer Robinh. 

I want a lot of contrast on this one.

The eyes are going to be a bear on the lion..ROFL.

I want a really intense rich brown look, and all the details I want to be very intense.

I'm raising the notch up a bit as I go along.

Highlighting is going to be very specific, and I want the jewels in crown, belt and other places to be

intense.  I think I can pull that off. 

Time will tell

Good call on the purple. It'll look nice when contrasting with the lion fur or gold.

Yesterday temperature hit 98 last night.  Combine that with NJ humidity, and I am amazed I did any

painting last night, or earlier this morning.  I'm creeping further and further into the recesses of the

bat cave at this point.  I did make some progress as I continue to make King Richard emerge from

his casting.  I've been layering color, and just having fun..(betwixt ice cubes).

 

Here is the Lion at this stage.

      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:

      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!

      Used my extra hour from Daylight Savings Time on Sunday to paint this awesome dwarf.  I think I painted her dress 3 different times before I got to the yellow and green combo, and am really happy with how it turned out.  I had a rough time with her face though.  Her mouth and cheeks seem to indicate shouting orders, but I couldn't get her eyes to express that kind of command.  I went over it so many times that I felt like I was losing details, so I just stopped at a point that looked "good enough".  I still really like her overall, and had a lot of fun painting her.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
