I am awaiting the arrival of my florescent desk lamp sometime today.

As I said when I posted Lucius to the show off...I'm off to paint something DIFFERENT.

I think this is quite different..ROFL.

This is the Frog Bishop from Dark Sword Miniatures.

I am looking forward to painting it.

Its bigger; but just as challenging as the 25 mm,

and the details are fantastic.  So, here is what his Grace looks like.

He's primed.

Finally !

My florescent lamp set up just arrived.

It has an armature so it is off my painting desk.....

Nothing like good light with an improvement, I get more desk space back now.

Hopefully it isn't like a house, that extra bedroom soon gets an occupant !

Shudder.

 

So I can begin working on His Grace, Bishop Ribbit...ROFL

I promised Auberon that I would slow down on the painting speed that I do, so he can catch up, and I can start enjoying painting a lot more.

I switched to this anthropomorphic Miniature (I actually have four Frogs) to paint because you need to be challenged to grow.

I dearly love Tom Meier Sculpts, and I have another 8 of them still to paint, but I need to bring something fresh to those miniatures now.

This is all new to me, and should be a hoot to paint, also, I'm a bit of an expert in the symbolism on this miniature, and so I have several

colors (Gold, White, Red, Green, Purple, Black, and PINK) to chose from. I'll have to think about it.

 

Anywho, here is the Froggy after I lined him.  Lots of details in that sculpt !

glad to see you have stepped away from the knights and taken on something with no shiny armour to paint!   

 

You can do it!

I absolutely love this series of miniatures. I have the Prince on my desk to paint in November, and I can't wait.

 

Your greens on the bishop's face are stellar!

Nice nice nice contrast on the skin. You could add depth to the shadows by very gently and precisely glazing some purple into the shadows. If you do it, go slow, maKe sure you are using thin thin paint and build it up slowly. When glazing, the brush should be almost dry. I would dark line the ouside of the eyeballs with a dark brown, be super careful though. Add some pure white reflection points onto the eyeballs too. I can tell you are out of your comfort zone on this and as a result you are pushing yourself. Nice!

Thanks Sanael !

I should have gotten the prince as well, however I got the Queen,King, and the Executioner :)

ROFL. 

I am laughing like mad as I do these.

Thanks for the compliment on the skin tones, they are a hoot to do.

I'm looking forward to working on the Robes.. That will be a ton of fun also.

Good luck on the Prince !

Yes, they are hilarious to paint. I may well go for a deeper green like yours on the prince...I did the jester* last year and used very yellowish greens, so the foresty shade might be a nice change.

 

Can't wait to see more of yours! Have fun!

 

*shameless self-promotion: check my index link in my sig and you can find a link to the jester if you like.

Slowly adding color, and trying to work out the paint scheme.

I'm not rushing this one, I want to have fun.

I think he is going to have PINK socks, off white robe, with light blue shadows...

I'm messing with paint on a drawing pad I keep next to my palette.

 

I added some orange and some white to his eyes, and messed with his tome.

      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.

      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!

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy
