  1. About We have all of the models shown already modeled and test printed, ready to go into production, but molding, mastering, and casting runs are expensive. It would take us a lot of time to raise the funds to put these models into production over time and we ask for funds to make a collection of them at once. We want to put these models into your hands as soon as possible, and Kickstarter can make that possible. We are a group of friends from Italy, avid players of Wargames, Role Playing Games and miniatures painting and collecting. I per
  2. Yesterday while I was painting up the gift (Shazirah) for my niece, my brother was painting up this guy! It's Sir Bors from Albion's Legacy Kickstarter. We did a slight modification to him to add the cross in his hand. This is my brother' 2nd painted mini.
  3. I have been sick for several months, and it appears I am turning the corner now. Finally got the Noble Wood Elf Couple completed yesterday. Magnificent pair to paint from Tom Meirer. I wanted to get the woods aspect in there, and yet create the Royal hidden in the wood feeling. Their is some subtle gold and brown colors going on in robes. I'm trying to create "Non" highlights, and yet make the figures pop (if that makes sense). Here are three photos. The newly Diabetic diagnosis has caused a bit of (hopefully temporary) eye focusing damage when I use the cell
  4. This has taken a lot longer than I anticipated! First of all, It's a MAGNIFICENT piece of work by Tom Meier. It is 30mm (small). Like any Meier sculpts I do, I provide myself with an extra challenge. I am going to have to either dig down deep, or reach to the stars to paint it where I am happy, so I go all out. This one is no exception. I was really keeping myself to control, color wheel mixing, and having a vision besides the show off work at DSM. I wanted something different. I went with a bit of simplicity, and I placed him on a rocky terrain (another challenge to myself). The s
  5. I saw this Mini and it was a gift from my son. I saw the way it had to be constructed, and that the sword was very bent in shipping; it was a Tom sculpt.. Deal with it was all that went through my mind. Mieer sculpts are teaching sources for me, so I set out to learn from this one. Don't think I had one kick my Elf so bad in a long time..ROFL. It took four tries to pin it, and the small size made it more challenging. I ADORED working and learning on this one. I had to baby it in some ways, and some how it caused me to work with more simplistic colors, pay more attention to detail, an
  6. Another quite challenging Mini. I seem to be wrestling with these characters more than I would normally. I have the suspicion that I am doing rather more difficult mini's, and using a lot more ideas, and experimentation than I have since starting this incredible hobby. I was originally going to use the broad sword that also came with this sculpt, the sculpture demanded and rejected the sword every time I put it in place, I finally gave up, axe went on like a piece of cake ! I chose to mix all my most difficult colors to paint him up. Robinh will be very happy with one color choice..LOL.
  7. This has been an extremely delightful miniature to paint. I created a WIP (link below) since I decided to break with my standard way of doing things. I made mistakes along the way, and learned from them. I simplified this miniature in line with the sculpting that Tom did. I went for the "feel" of the actions, and didn't try to "pretty it up". I like the power this mini protrudes. So here is The Ancient Wizard. I've included a photo with a quarter to give an idea about scale. As usual, comments and critiques are valued. Here is the Link to the WIP if you are interested in seeing wh
  8. I decided to post what I am doing with this mini, since I just decided that I was not following my usual routine. He has been broccoli clipped, cleaned up as best I could do, and Primed. Rather than line him with my usual brown liner, I decided to use a black wash. It gives me a lot of contrast, but I don't have to paint over that usual brown. The black should work for my intentions. Nice to see all the fine details on this one. The beard makes me shiver in AN-TIS-I-PAT-ION. Tom did a magnificent job on that, as well as the right hand at the base of the staff on left side. He always sn
  9. This miniature started out with a totally different color scheme and then took off on its own. She is far from the black robes that I originally thought she would have ! To say I had fun would be an understatement ! Your Comments and criticism are welcomed and greatly desired. Magda dropped down and landed at the agreed upon meet up point. She scanned the skies waiting for her friends to appear, and then to travel together to the witches gathering.
  10. Its the First day of Autumn, and Halloween is almost upon us. I have been very good about NOT painting another Froggy for quite some time now. My funny bone is in need of a tickly...SO.. Here is the Frog Witch NOT to be confunsed with a sandwitch however ! I intend to have a lot of fun painting her. I can see pink bloomers, purple socks, Brown Robes, and I'm going to just play with what type of frog she is color wise. The poison dart Frogs have a myriad of colors associated with them. So we shall see where I wander. Here is the Frog Witch Primed, and coated with brown liner.
  11. Here is my interpretation of the Dwarven Fighter with Great Axe from Dark Sword Miniatures I absolutely adore painting these things. This one was an awful lot of fun and challenge. As always, your C/C are requested, and desired. Let me know what you think of what I have done with this guy. *********************** After days of walking Frerin Redbeard's grip around his Father's great axe tightened. Whoever knocked down the family's red hued Rune Stone would not live to see another day !
  12. After working on the Young Lady in Waiting with puppy in showoffs Forum, I decided I needed to do something larger and a dwarf looks like it fills the the need. I see horns on a helmet and I shudder (Norwegians tend to go nuts with that imagery), but since it is on a dwarf, I'll go with the flow. This is a detailed mini, lots of furs, metal, and very dynamic. I'm going to go for it. Oh, I've already designed a base for him in my head.. another challenge ! Here is what he looks like prior to priming, and lining. I intend to take my time on this.
  13. I finished the Barbarian today (almost sad to see him mounted on his plinth). This is a magnificent sculpt! Challenging, but totally rewarding. Your color choices really provide you with an endless decision making, and challenging process. The miniature is also so dynamic that is it fun. It even convinced me to use "Green Stuff" for the first time ! As always; your comments, criticism are welcome, appreciated, and sought after. Leave me a note: Here is my concept of the Male Barbarian With Hammer:
  14. I started prepping this piece last week. I wanted something having to deal with fur (not that comfortable with it yet). So I decided that I would work on this one. Looks simple, (it is FAR from that). The undulations and the details of this sculpt are very very complex. I am just now laying in layers of color, and I haven't even started to build up the color that I want. I already have planned out the basing on this one, so I will probably do the base while I am painting. Love the dynamics on this mini ! Here is where I am at. C/C are always welcome !
  15. This Ogress has a motto: There is nothing wrong with being an Ogre, Just in dressing and looking Poorly ! Poor thing has broken one Mirror Already ! This was a lot of fun to do. As you can tell, I had a blast making her as outrageous as I possibly could. Its hard to paint a portrait on 1/4 by 1/4 inch oval !! Here is Venus d' Ogress and her Runt. C and C are always welcome, and solicited. Painting these mini's is a solitary endeavor, I really love hearing back from all of you. You aren't going to hurt my feelings with a negative, but you will make me jump on the chair with
  16. I was given this mini by a friend, and have decided it is time to get it painted. I have discovered what many of you have hinted at...PREP time takes longer the more experienced you are. I too roll my eyes at mold lines, mutter under my breath about slag, and flashings left on the mini ! She has been washed, and primed, and if I ever stop giggling, she will get painted. My thinking is "An Ogress that thinks she is Marilynn Monroe", That thought alone makes me laugh. Anywho; here is a photo of the lovely lady !
  17. I think if you just look at this Miniature, you will know I was having a fantastic time. This provided lots of experience in cleaning (nasty mold line filing), and ran me through the gauntlet of any skills I have. I used some freehand painting on shield; and played with black and white photos working the shadows. Highlighting was a hoot ! The opportunity to take this figure in a thousand different directions is amazing. Needless to say, I have totally enjoyed this Miniature. I hope the rest that I have to do prove to be as entertaining. As always, your comments and critiques are a
  18. I'm doing something a little different. Rather than do a WIP, I'm kinda doing an "Okay this is what I am up to". I'll post things to this "WIP" as I move along. Gets me away from the "do some work, take photos, edit photos, crop photos, post photos syndrome. I need to focus on just painting for a bit. So, here is the mini almost all base painted. I'm planning on some freehand on that shield. He's also painted in old bronze for the armor.
  19. This has been a total blast to paint. Besides being very whimsical, it is a challenging piece of great sculpting. You can chase yourself around quite a bit on this one. The biggest challenge is the armor, and painting all the details of it. This will exercise your brush control ! When it came to basing him, I did all sorts of things with cork, and wood, and finally I decided that Less IS more in this case. I want to draw emphasis to the figure, not take away from it. So I have used a simple Tung Oil stained base. As always, your comments and criticism are welcomed and sought afte
  20. 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. Jay
  21. Knight of the Flowers has been quite the trip ! I don't think I have ever used a 0000 brush as much as I have on all the little bits on here. Nor has so many details been thrown at me at one time. This is my first free hand piece of work. TWO of them. Lining on cloak, and painting the flower on the shield. I'm sure I will get better at it. I chose this wonderful sculpt because of its challenge, and for its beauty. I hope I did it some justice. I tried to make it mine, hopefully I managed to impart my vision of it. So here are some photos of Ser Loras Tyrell. Comments a
  22. After thirteen (13) RBG miniatures from Tre Manor, I thought I could use a break. So I opted to start a miniature that will FORCE me to really concentrate on my brush control. Ser Loras Tyrell, Knight of the Flowers, is ONE TOUGH painting experience. Its carved by my favorite T. Meirer, and the armor, and cloak back look like a nightmare to paint. So I selected it. Nothing tempted, nothing learned ! Actually scares the heck out of me; but so did all his other sculpts I have painted ! I won't be posting as many photos as I have been prior to this. I intend to take my time, and
  23. PROJECT...BAYOU FISHING WHARF DATA...This is the concept drawing/layout (in scale) of the next project that I intend to build. It is a bayou backwater swamp fishing wharf in the deep Cajun South where I had some great times with a buddy while on leave from the service. This will be a nostalgic diorama that I am building for my own collection...for memories! Paul (Catdancer)
  24. Completed the Mounted Noble Oak Elf by Tom Meier. This Miniature proved a lot more difficult than I anticipated. Had to paint most of the elements separately, then glue them together. I found balancing the colors, and keeping dark areas in control hard to do when things aren't attached. The camera isn't doing credit to the gray blending into the shadows. They're there. So.. Here is the finished Elf.
  25. This is the last of the Elves I have (I have some dupes, but I'm holding off painting them). With all the horses that I have been playing with; I decided to do a Gray. Of all the colors, a gray horse is going to make you work very hard for your color. Its either TOO dark, or TOO Light.. Realize then when you start. So I have painted the horse Gray already. I just have to glue the rider onto his Horse. I may do some independent painting on the figure before I attach him. I have lined the rider at this point. I'm thinking of Blues, and Silvers, with Reddish/brown oak leaves on Horse, an
