  1. Well; It has taken me a bit longer to get these mini's assembled and painted. It is such a joy to look at one completed. I went with the white horse because the color is so difficult. I used red just to experiment with the color on the surcoat, and gold for the emblems just because they are small and I wanted them to stand out. So here is Tom Meier's Sir Tristan (on Horse and On Foot). Hope you enjoy the efforts. Jay

    Elf WoodLord andElf Woodlady.

    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 phone to take photos. Can't tell if i have blurred a shot or not. So, let me know what you think of the Wood Elf and his consort. The Robes are a mixture of Ruby Red, Brown, Blood read, and four different golds. Plied on in layer with browns. Jay

    King Pelinore - TM-3016

    I finally picked up one of my Tom Meirer Sculpts that I so dearly love to paint. The are used by me as a teaching tool. Once you know how big they are, they give you a bit of pause to paint one. I'll include a beginning photo for scale. I was doing a lot of experimenting with the reds. On some of those reds there are 20 plus coats of paint, and probably 10 different shades of red mixed together to give me the final colors. None of those reds are out of a dropper. I've worked on this for about two weeks. While taking photos I noticed that I was peeling off the edge primer (?) this is a new one for me. Maybe it has to do with the cold temp in my painting room. I corrected the slight edging flash. So Here is King Pelinore by Thunderbolt Mtn. Your comments and criticism are desired and requested. Please leave me a note about this mini. Jay

    Galahad on Horse TBM-3009

    I am a bit shocked, but this is actually the last Thunderbolt Mountain, 25 mm miniature I have. Glad to see that it is one without a helm (so I have the pleasure of doing a face on this scale again). Galahad has all the looks of simplicity, which means it is more treacherous than otherwise..LOL. I already have spent hours filing off mold marks, and getting it onto a base. There is one mold line on left leg that has been scraped and filed down, I don't want to do anymore to it, since it risks damaging the sculpt at this point. I'll let the primer and paint do its magic on that. So..I'm off on another gallop, though in keeping with my new habit of taking my time, this WON'T be done in a week, by a long shot. Looks like I have ample opportunity to have fun.
  5. Since I tend to paint these quickly I decided that I would paint two Miniatures in the same WIP. This way it will take longer on my part, and anyone wishing to follow along won't be hanging onto the horse tail to stay caught up. Lots of things to keep my busy on these two. Sir Galahad has an outrageous designed surcoat with those jagged sleeves, and his armor is so spiked it is mind bending. Lot of opportunity to do something different on these. I also have one face, and one helm to deal with. These should be fun. So two knights and a horse..hmmmm.. Will have to see where this takes off to. Here are some photos.

    Galahad TBM-3009

    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 !
  7. 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.

    Jasonators Emperor on Horse

    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.

    Emperor Lucius by Jasonator

    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

    Emperor Lucius Standing by Jasonator

    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.
  11. 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 !

    Red Knight on Horse by Jasonator

    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).

    Sir Percevale by Jasonator

    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 !

    Red Knight on Horse

    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.

    Red Knight Standing

    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.

    The Red Knight

    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. So, a new beginning! And I can make a real base for him on the standing figure

    Jasonator's Sir Percevale on Foot.

    Had a lot of fun painting this one in Greens, after painting the mounted version in Oranges. Finally catching on to the basing concepts. So here is Sir Percevale dismounted. I modified the previously entered photos in favor of some that I had NOT reduced. So these photos have only been cropped. Hopefully these are a better quality, while I transition to using a REAL digital Camera, and set up !
  18. I have been experimenting a lot on this mini. These 25mm (one inch) miniatures are a bit of a challenge; but they are carved so well you can stretch yourself a bit. I've been mixing my colors ON the horse while it is wet. Its a gamble, you can really make mud very quickly. I'm rather delighted, and happy with how this turned out. I've developed a lot of pleasure from doing these, and am grateful for all the assistance this forum has provided me as I learn the ropes, and develop my personal style. Here are two Sir Balyne photos.
