I finished another Dark Sword Miniature this afternoon. I got some upsetting news, so I painted it off, intead
of letting it bother me. So, with that said... This is a HEAP OF FUN to paint. I actually did it twice. When I looked at number 1
I liked it, but it was boring. So I got out the paints AGAIN, and figured out another paint scheme. I based my second set of painting
on "Night Watch", and that is what is here. Very complicated Sculpt to paint, and get into. Multi level highlighting also makes the
brush work that more complicated. 28mm is SMALL, so keep tips well pointed !
Do have fun, its worth it on this one.
Comments (negative or positive) are greatly appreciated !
Here he is:
I have been threatening to finish Zoe The Golden Retriever sometime this week.
Last nights sixteen degrees F provided the impetus ! I was too cold to sleep well.
So Here is ZOE. This is a beautiful, soul full piece to work on. Capturing the emotion in
that small face, getting everything painted and mounted proved quite the challenge to me.
In the end Zoe was a real treat to do. Not that often I really get into a feeling level while painting
a miniature. Mr. Summers must have had a beautiful and loving companion in Zoe, it came through
the Sculpt ! Hope I did it Justice.
Let me know what you think of my efforts on this mini please !
Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer"
I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

Finally have gotten back to painting; what a joy !!!
Felt like a major portion of my life had gone away.
Poor Alfyn has been sitting on my desk forlorn for over 30 days.
I finally said enough, and here he is finished. He is such a majestic Viking
I wanted to get him elevated as he reminded me of my beloved Fjords. Well here
he is at the pinnacle of a fjord looking at his dragon boat pulled up on the shore.
Feel free to make any comments, criticisms, they're ALL appreciated.
So here is Alfyn Crowkiller Wilding Captain as I envisioned him.
