Looks great Jay!

 

Next time try to get a bit more shading and highlighting on the base stones, like between them for shading and the tops/edges for highlighting (if I was doing it, I'd do this with dry brushing).

 

You are getting better and better every figure.

Yey, I got a mention!! I feel famous and all  :blush:

 

Soon you will start to think of the base as a separate mini, and then painting it will make more sense. 

 

You should fear the moment when you like the basing moment more than the actual mini, however  :devil:

Glad you appreciated the mention Willen, you are a magnificent provider of information, and deserve recognition !

Thanks for the input ub3r_n3rd.  I'm still figuring out this basing thang !

I think my days of slicing up cork strips into 2 mm bits and gluing them with pins is over.

Oh.. for Willen..

Uhh.. your comment about the basing being more important than the figure..Thanks for the warning..

I felt that tug already !  ROFL.

Gonna control that one !

Thanks guy's, your input and support is precious to me !

Jay

An honorable man-at-arms, guarding the parapet!  Nice idea for the base, it reminds me of some of the photos you took in Norway.  ^_^

Right On Little Bluberry;

I was thinking of that 12th century tower I climbed up into.

I was almost numb as I stood there looking out that port.. 800 year old window.. who had stood there before me ????

Blew my mind !

:upside:

I like the switch to black armor! It reminds me of a historical fencer I used to know who kept his helmet painted black. It looked sharp in real life too but was hard to keep that way when he kept getting hit on the helmet!

 

I like that you built up this base more than the last one. I'm looking forward to seeing more bases completed!

THAT is the best part for me, everywhere I go, especially Europe where everything has many centuries of history, and story. Who stood here before me? Who touched these stones? 

 

Amazing.

Nice work on this guy. My immediate thought was the opening scene of Hamlet.

 

Now that basing is coming along, how about some freehand heraldry for that shield? :P

 

I agree, basing is sometimes as much fun as the mini itself. I love making bases! Just restrain yourself from overpowering the figure with the base!

Sanael;

I thought about doing freehand on that shield; but the sheer smallness of it over-ruled my feeling of adventure.

I was thinking of duing a "Bend of Rue" (which is Queen Eliz II personal coat of arms), however, brushes were too dang big

to do in my thinking!

I'll try some freehand in the future though !

Looking great Jay! Keep up the excellent work! He looks like he's read to knock some heads should they appear over the side...

Or to calculate the airspeed of a laden swallow...

What do you mean? An African or European swallow?

:devil:

      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.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!
