The gold armor tone is a bit flat on this guy. I should have used a slightly yellower shade for the midtone I think. Oh well. He’lol do for my purposes.
Also, I thought the shield would tilt tilt the other way when attached to his arm, so the shading is opposite what i think it should be.
So, with the fact that the kickstarter thread will eventually get closed, I'm starting this thread to bring the discussion over here.
Current topics of discussion:
1. How awesome is this freaking giant?!
2. Holy crap these resins are NIIIIICE!
3. What the heck is up with the different stats on the Empire of Dust and regular Undead skeletons even though they have the same point cost?
A kickstarter exclusive from the Kings of War 2 KS. I painted this mini for the Reaper forums bimonthly resolutionary painting challenge first bonus challenge, which is simply to paint a mini in a jumping/springing pose.
This is a rendition of Ronnie Renton the owner/ leader/ director of Mantic Games as Ronaldo the Bard. And something of an in-joke at Mantic it would seem.
need to complain a bit about Mantic's metal alloy. It is too soft. This mini snapped in two different places. One was the feather in the cap, which I had to glue back slightly differently than it originally was; and the other was the right foot, which snapped clean off the first time I tried to dry fit the mini in a slotted base. Which explains why the ankle is a bit lumpy now.
Add to this that the miniscule truscale Mantic uses makes most details really small...argh. It does look much better IRL when not massively magnified.
And I used Blackadder the First's "Earl of Doncaster" outfit as an inspiration. I did paint the britches in colour and not in black, to give the mini more of a festive air.
