Good morning all,
so hope all you that hail from the land of the Gringo are having a beautiful long weekend, I know I am, with lots of turkey and then rampant capitalism.
So I finished this one last night, and just got him photographed, a Ral Partha Shadowrun Street Samurai, sculpted by Tom Meier, no idea when, late eighties/early nineties:
Whenever I pull these things off their bases there is always a little piece of paint that pops off the back that I never quite catch until it's too late, but never quite care enough to fix.
Anyhow, enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
out that I can get my paws and brush on. I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move. I started painting him this week, along with
another two others Meier Sculpts. I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him. Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge. They are
small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint. So here is where I am on this miniature,
a day after I started work on it. I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend. Jasonator.
It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
in front of a window with direct sunlight. So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
from Portland. I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
So here are four photos:
Please let me know what you think.
another Shadowrun figure I just finished working on, a Tom Meier piece, Shadowrun Female Street Samurai with Gun. There is also a male version of this gal that I'll be painting one of these days in the near future. With the rest of the Shadowrun figures I've done recently, I've done lots of vivid colors and makeup, but this lady looked a little more military-ish to me, so I kept her with a natural hair color, a white tank top and some military green shorts. I just did a very single colored base that I might afterwards actually mount onto a plastic base, not sure about that.
It's kind of weird the glaring errors you don't notice until you get these hugely closeup photos, like the seam on her weapons side. Oh well, when you look at her head one you don't really notice it I guess. This hobby is just a continuous learning process! So anyhow, hope you enjoy, even if you can see tons of imperfections!
Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
I've started working on them. My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
elven guards. This is what I have done so far. I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
just to get them in the picture. Work in Progress. So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.
