  1. My son gave me a handful of these Noble Oak Guards. I decided that I wanted to get them painted up as a project together. I am going to paint all three up in a theme. Seasons. I did the first one in what I will call Summer a while back. That leaves (yuck yuck) spring, fall, and winter for the three remaining. I have NO intention of repeating that Orange elf I did before....that was awesome and a stand alone moment. So, this is my project for now. Don't know how long it will take, but it won't be a week's work that is for sure. Here are the Elves: I include two photos of the ea
  2. I have really enjoyed working on this mini. If you read the WIP you will see the biggest hurdle in painting him was the sword arm ! Sir Kay didn't reach the Ripe old Noble age he had; by being ignorant, nor learning a few treacherous tricks of his own. As he walked past the old monastic ruins the Goblins Attacked ! He grabbed his walking staff and with a swift twirl; he had the hidden sword in hand. He dropped the staff at his feet, and protected himself. Here is Sir Kay. Comments and Critiques are always Invited and appreciated!
  3. I've selected Sir Kay standing as my next Miniature. Bare faced so I get to practice face painting, and this is a tough one. Mustache, and face is blocked by that right arm. Right off the bat I see some major challenges. So lots to conquer here, in a one inch miniature. I think Sir kay is going to be a mixture of purples, and silver, maybe my beloved Gun Metal also for contrast with those Purples. I've already started on him. Primed, lined, and rudimentary face on him. I also am painting as a senior knight (isn't that nicely politically correct)..LOL. He's Old...His armor says that
  4. Back to the little guys again. I love the challenge of doing this one inch miniatures. I must have a masochistic streak somewhere,but I learn so much from them, I suspect that is why I like them so much. So here is Sir Galahad sans Helm ! As primed, Lined, and faced ! I got a jump start on him while finishing the Wood Elf Archer !
  5. This has been an incredible Sculpt to Paint. It started off as "Use a color I haven't used", and suddenly took off on its own. Thank you for the insight, suggestions, and inspiration that the forum has provided. Here is my "Autumn" Wood Elf Archer. C/C always appreciated !
  6. This Miniature was a Freebee when I purchased my Frogs, so I thought I would finish off the DSM's that I have. I did all the standard prep, then Primed, and put a coat of Brown Liner on him. I have now put one coat of Green on his cloak. I am using this as an undercoat for another color that I am going to experiment with. I don't want to do a Green cloak on this miniature; especially since it has been done in yellows, and Green.. I want something louder than that. Complex miniature, with lots of little details to mess with. That face is going to be interesting to deal with, as is t
  7. I finished Guinevere the Queen from Thunderbolt Mountain a few days ago. Thought I would post her here now. This is a small mini, so I included a photo of a 28mm to let you see the scale. I adore working on Tom Meier's works, his sculpting is amazing; and he has this habit of putting a little surprise in his miniatures, that you discover when you start washing the figures. Once you start doing his stuff you get addicted real fast. I made the figure a bit darker since I was loosing her face in the photographs. Photography is such a pain when they are this small ! So anyway, here
  8. Trick or Treat !!!!!!!!!!! The Trick is I had another Froggy that I could NOT resist painting prior to Halloween ! The Treat is that I painted him up this week. So Here is the Frog Grim Reaper !
  9. Has been an Extremely busy weekend. Got up this morning, then cleaned and primed Queen Guinevere from Thunderbolt Mtn. Spent a lot of time with files, and x-acto knife. So after all the Frogs, I will be taking my time on a 25mm sculpt. So, The adventure Begins.
  10. This is an incredible amount of fun to paint. The details on this miniature are a sheer joy to encounter. I got playful with this one, it called for something to set it off. I took my time, and got some wonderfu suggestions along the way. So this piece can be quite the challenge for your brush control ! Trying to push the color scale up a bit. I highly recommend painting the Frog King, I think I spent a major amount of time just laughing as I got into it. It reminds me of Jackie Gleason actually. Here is the Frog King. C&C, as always, is appreciated.
  11. This is the last of the Frog Series that I have to work on. I have NO idea what direction I will go in on this one. He just looks hysterical, and a fun Sculpt from my favorite sculptors Tom Meier. It is 28mm, not his normal 25mm. So I'll just begin painting him up. I intend to have a blast along the way, no matter how long it takes.
  12. Give me a rainy day when I have had the chance to prime a Miniature, and I am OFF to the races. I was lucky that the Norwegian news had a whole lot of stuff I was interested in, or I would have gone nuts on this Miniature. The Froggy Queen is sculpted by my favorite sculptor, AND it is 28mm. Kathud. So I have the best of both worlds, Tom's sculpt and a larger size to play with. I am thinking of doing a Norsk Bunad style gown on the Queen. (I think I have gone insane).. but we shall see. Here is where I am at with the Froggy Queen. I am just going to play, and enjoy this piece of incr
  13. 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
  14. I am awaiting the arrival of my florescent desk lamp sometime today. As I said when I posted Lucius to the show off...I'm off to paint something DIFFERENT. I think this is quite different..ROFL. This is the Frog Bishop from Dark Sword Miniatures. I am looking forward to painting it. Its bigger; but just as challenging as the 25 mm, and the details are fantastic. So, here is what his Grace looks like. He's primed.
  15. This has been one of the Great Fun Projects to paint. Since I took a break from Painting the Arthurian pieces by Tom Meier, I discovered that he had sculpted these larger 28mm pieces. The Frog Queen is a lot of challenge, and you can really push yourself as far as you (and your funny bone) can stand. I hope you appreciate my efforts on this Miniature. C/C is always welcome ! Here is my interpretation of the Queen of the Froggies !
  16. This has been an absolute blast to paint. I think the hardest part for me was to not giggle when I was going to do something that required me to be controlled. Excellent carving and details on this piece. If you want a pleasant challenge, this is a fun one. I slowed down and really enjoyed painting this, seems that I paint one figure a week, no matter how much I slow down. So here is my Froggy Bishop:
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. As I promised robinh, I have started to do three Goblins.. Its a good way to use up paint on the palette, and gosh, what a fun challenge. A little of this, a dab of that, have fun, and get playful. Anything goes on these guys... and hideous/Goofy .. gets three extra points !
  21. I have finished the last Red Knight Miniature I had. This was an awful lot of fun, and a lot more of a challenge due to all the folds in the comparison on this miniature. The figure is very dynamic, and trying to interpret that movement with paint was a lot of fun and experimentation. I will post six photos (that hopefully will show what I have been doing).
  22. I didn't intend to finish Percevale today; but it just turned out that way. I had one disaster occur where he fell off his mounting clip, and smashed to the floor beneath my desk, once that happened; I mounted him on the supplied base he came with. I used coffee grounds, sand, and some flock to make the base. So here is Sir Percevale. Made a modification to the base. A row of planting on the left made it better !
  23. I started prepping this Miniature yesterday, got him primed and attached to a large binder clip. I started thinking about colors, and just cracked up ! The Red Knight kinda precludes something in the name. Soooo, gonna have a lot of Red, and some black, and some silver. Sculpt also has a horses faceplate on it, that might be a bit of fun to toy with. Maybe a Ruby color ? The scabbard is also empty, so instead of a lance, I'll be using a sword in the Right hand. Note the dynamics of this piece. Incredible movement. Here is the Red Knight on Horse Lined in Brown Liner.
  24. This has been a bit more challenging than usual. I almost got myself permanently attached to this miniature. New Super glue flows a lot faster than I realized ! I used the Joker from a deck of cards to make the tile floor ! Every Minute of painting this has been a joy.
  25. Since I complete my last mounted Noble Oak Guard I needed to find something to paint. Fortunately, six more figures showed up yesterday, and I started cleaning up the Red Knight. He's been filed, primed, and I decided that I was going to do something different than I normally do. I left off the black lining, and started layering in a dark pumpkin mix of dusky flesh, and fire orange. Then added some brown to make a richer brown undercoat, and painted it onto the figure. I will gradually add reds to fulfill his name, but this is learning, and playing. I really like where this is heading.
