Give me a rainy day when I have had the chance to prime a Miniature, and I am OFF to the races.

I was lucky that the Norwegian news had a whole lot of stuff I was interested in, or I would have gone nuts

on this Miniature.  The Froggy Queen is sculpted by my favorite sculptor, AND it is 28mm.  Kathud.

So I have the best of both worlds, Tom's sculpt and a larger size to play with.

I am thinking of doing a Norsk Bunad style gown on the Queen.

(I think I have gone insane).. but we shall see.

Here is where I am at with the Froggy Queen. 

I am just going to play, and enjoy this piece of incredible.

I am done for the evening.

Tomorrow I have a busy day, which includes an hour walk in the forest. (It will be cool enough to restore my soul).

I am planning on a deep blue skirt, with freehand decoration.

I'm just building up the blue base, so I have something to paint on.

I'm really enjoying this figure so far, and the blouse is going to be a mind blower to do.. !!!

Yay! Looks good so far.

 

I just started the prep work on my prince. I'll start a WiP once I have him on a base. Such fun!

 

Looking forward to seeing your freehand on thus one!

I have to admit that sometimes; as I step back, and look over more than an hour's work on a miniature;

I am shocked at how much time I spend putting elements BACK into shadow.

The next series of photos deal with the dark blue skirt (I keep on making it darker and darker), layer by layer.

I then made the shadow pleats darker and darker.  They went from green to a wine purple, I think I'm happy with

that.  I also set the back of the skull into more shadow, getting the head at a color that I can paint the ruff and make it and the

back of her skull look natural, and set myself up to pop that Tiara into view, with a dark foundation around it.

(translation in one sentence:  you can't show light without dark behind it).

 

Enough philosophy... here are some photos about what I am yammering about.

If I don't stop laughing I will never be able to get this miniature finished !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every darn time I start getting serious, I laugh when I see it, and then I start getting wild ideas

about color mixtures.  I've decided that since there are NO RULES about how this Frog Queen should look;

I might as well have a good time painting her, and experimenting.  So with that in mind, I'm off in another

direction than I originally had planned. 

I really like this ! 

 

Here is Her Maj as she looks now.

If I don't stop thinking of Elizabeth I as I paint this thing, I'm going to choke to death laughing.

I have been adjusting colors, and painting that Ruff around her neck.

and the one under her chin, and getting the shadows back in.

 

That's it for today, since I have to prepare dinner this afternoon.

 

Here is the Froggy Queen.

Glad to hear you're having a blast painting her hoppyness! It's always easier to paint when you're having fun. :)

      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
