Jasonator's Lancelot d' lake

Recommended Posts

This is what I have been calling Lance II, since my original miniature was replaced due to a problem.

I've had him sitting around waiting, and decided to paint him up, and since he didn't come with a base,

I had to create my own base this time (this is a first).

So without a whole lot of commentary;

here is lance, going up the ruined stairs with his mace in hand.

Has been fun, I'm rather delighted with the way this turned out.

(my original base was far too complex, and large, and had to be

removed).

Gotta make mistakes to learn !

Oh..Lance II is a 25mm Mini (should call it a "Micro-Mini") !

Wonderful job on this figure Jay, love that you decided to base him as it really does add a lot of character to Lance II! 

 

Basing is fun isn't it?

Nice one.

 

Now that you tried it once, aren't you itching to do MORE with basing? I know you are...  :devil:

ROFL..

Once I stop laughing I'll write a serious response.. chuckle....

 

After the initial disaster I thought, this isn't going to happen.

I had a complex design of making a ruined chapelbroken down wall and window out of the cork,

and painting it,putting lance with his back to it.  Once I got it half made I tried out

lance standing in front, it DIDN'T fit !  All that work had to be torn down.

So I said the heck with it,then after I started looking at it, I thought,

why not put two steps in, that he is fighting his way up !

Then for first time used some flock and I stepped back and Liked it !

Yes, it is a great deal of satisfaction.

Its is a lot of fun, and now I can start using bits and pieces of stuff to make fun basing.

Simplicity is a good thing to remember !

Though that chapel window may show up in a future base (even if it is laying on the floor) !

Basing is like painting, you start out as a beginner and do a few little things here and there and before you know it you are really good at it and it definitely completes the pieces.

Basing is like everything, you start out as a completely noob and from there, it is all improvement  :;):

 

It is a matter of taste; I love being able to incorporate some detail that is unique to the mini, at least by basing...

Ub3r and Willen;

Thank you for your kindness and support !

I'm looking forward to the next Miniature that I base.

I can't imagine NOT basing anymore, unless I don't have a size platform that will

allow me to base the figure. 

You both have had me looking at common things going..oh.. that will look interesting.

That scrap piece of chain, oh yeah !

:)

After years as an engineer, and computer nerd, how great to see something in hand

instead of waiting for years, and seeing nothing for that effort !

Did you say "Chapel Window!?"  ^_^ These are looking great Jay! I think the key is to just keep playing around with the material and see what you can accomplish. I think I'm biting off quite a bit on my current project. LOL! Love what you're doing here!

      I spent lunches last week on these two stands of Saxons for the Osprey Game Dux Bellorum, in which each stand is a unit on its own.  All of the figures are home cast, mostly Prince August with a few spearmen from Dutkins Collectables. For the Saxon army, I'm doing it all with home cast figures, partly as an excuse for having the molds, partly as an artistic challenge. Practically speaking, there's probably more individualization and detail work than is actually necessary for a mass tabletop unit, but I like to err on the extra side...

      Statuesque Miniatures

      Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people!

      You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

      Malak breathed the cold air and smiled. This day had been long coming. The journey to the Frozen City had been difficult, wizards of his like had difficulty procuring supplies in the so called civilized lands, even in the rough towns near Felstad. Still, goblins could adapt to any situation and this one was no different. The eclectic band he had managed to scrape together stood with him now on the outskirts of the ancient ruin, ready to stake their claim at the riches that lie within. His first in command was his apprentice Grubb a Weiben goblin from the Reaping lands to the south.
      After him was Murdo an infantrygoblin of the Heartstabber tribe of Impact Crater in the Oldhammer Mountains, and a likely candidate for leadership over the rest should it be required.

      Polg and Mog were Manorheim goblins from just north of the Reaping lands and reasonably useful with a bow and axe, respectively.


      Gik and Moosh were from a nearby Bighead tribe. While both were foolish creatures, Gik was good with his bow and Moosh was quick with his feet and his dagger.

      They were also good with animals. Fearful and mistrusting of dogs they had brought with them giant rat creature they had tamed and named Squeaker.



      His final member was a brute of a goblin named Malg from the Thunderbolt Mountains.



      Louts and fool’s the lot of them, but competence cost gold, and that was coming soon. Besides if they die, at least he'll be able to buy better help on the next excursion.

      Unfortunately, Murdo had been less competent than hoped, dying shortly after impaling the "mouse wizard" on his spear. The Manorhiem goblins suggested calling in a trap expert from their village by the name of Grinner. Hopefully this one will prove more useful.
