I have spent the last two days doing "clean-up". I found out why I got all those strange looking files in my file set, and what some of them are good for. I got a miniature lineman's pliers set that has proven really good at taking off some of the casting/mold flashing. So I am going to paint the Emperor Lucius and his mount. I am going to try and avoid painting any more miniatures with helms on for at least a month. Feels good to put in a face again. I also am looking at some other Tom Meier works that are more whimsical (but extremely challenging as well). So I will be getting in a few different miniatures to paint (besides Kickstarter II...drool, slurp..be calm my soul). I am painting this a bit differently than normal. He'll be in two parts until I can get the upper body done enough to glue him on his mount. No way I could do his left side glued to that horse ! So here is Lucius. I will probably change colors with the exception of the black shield and golden Eagle.
I was rather amazed that I finished The Emperor Lucius today, usually it takes a least a week to finish one of these for me. Think the hot weather contributed to my speed this time. This was a great Mini to paint. I kept the shield color's the same, but did change the color scheme from the Green on the standing version. The big challenge here is painting and then assembling the miniature. Once it is glued you loose access to huge parts of the sculpt ! This took some patience and planning. So here is The Emperor Lucius. I had a blast doing this one ! Jay
I thought that I would finish this tomorrow and then post. I kept on looking at it sitting on my painting desk and said..DO IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is Done. I can honestly say that this miniature blew my socks off, this one has fantastic Challenges, incredible details,and it will make you work and concentrate like you never have before. I don't think I have been happier painting a miniature than this one. so, here is the completed Emperor Lucius, Hope you enjoy him as much as I do.
Having finished the disco Torch Goblins; I dug out the Emperor Lucius by Tom Meier. This is the Standing version, then I will do him on horse. Shield is very complex, as is that crown, and scabbard, with the pattern cloak and surcoat over the armor. That chain mail isn't much of an issue, but the rest of it is. Black Shield golden eagle, or do I go Deutch, Green Shield, Black Eagle, or Gold shield Black Eagle. Decisions decisions. I'm thinking white and gold trimmed surcoat, maybe Emerald Green cloak with Gold on Trim, to match the surcoat.. Anywho.. here are two photos of what he looks like on his binder clip !
