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:

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Just a little something I got finished yesterday, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving, be safe if you're venturing out on Black Friday.

      So I've always have had problems pinning a round object, more or less trying to get the pin vise/drill into the round part of the piece. In this instance, the round part is the hand of the river troll 14008 (Warlord line). The wrist has a perfect indentation for the "ball" of the hand. With having to travel to play & such & of course actual gameplay I don't trust superglue alone.
       
      Any tips?

      Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro.
       
      The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi
       
      You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here:
      http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/
       
      We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well.
       
      Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!

      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...
