Red Knight Standing

It looks awesome, I used to have issues with super glue so I switched to crazy glue gel. Same effect but goes where you want it ;)

Genius idea with the card. Is this a Reaper figure? I love the reds.

Thunderbolt Mountain. Jay looooves these and does a great job with them.

Thanks Ub3r;

I adore Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.

Tom Meier's sculpts really cause me to strive to achieve a capability of being worthy of painting his work.

The magnificent quality of what he does, the attention to detail, and the whimsical addition of details in his work are breath

taking.  A 25mm (1 inch) sculpture of his is an incredible and delightful challenge.

When you find a horse's foot carved under a cloth, or that he has added an acorn in a leaf adornment, you know that he

is challenging you to create a masterpiece.  I love working on these treasures.

Jay

The model looks great, the red is fantastic. My only comment is that on the pictures the armour on the legs/ feet in particular looks very bright. Almost as if their is no paint, it may be worth the add the depth to this.

A little touch of Gunmetal-gray solved that problem Edsterdoom !

Thank you for calling my attention to that brightness.

Stealing the floor idea for sure. Killer.

ROFL... Oh.. realize that every card maker creates a different back on their cards.

Don't overlook foreign playing cards either, they have different backs on them;

but there is a treasure trove of variations in the decks.  We have Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, and hearts;

in Italy that have Swords, goblets, Wands, and round disks.

All of those cards would make a marvelous flying carpet, or a rug.

Some of the Jacks, queens, kings and aces could be used for all sorts of backgrounds,

paintings.  I have six decks from Italy waiting to be made into tile floors.. one deck has eagles,

and angels on them !

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      I had a lot of fun this this one, On top of making him fly, I really wanted to make it look like he was from a black and white movie. Doing that but keeping everything  distinct with such a limited color palette was challenging. I really enjoyed this project.
       
      I hope you like it.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers!

      And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
       
      So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
       

       
      His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
       
      My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!
