Back to the little guys again.

I love the challenge of doing this one inch miniatures.

I must have a masochistic streak somewhere,but I learn so

much from them, I suspect that is why I like them so much.

 

So here is Sir Galahad sans Helm !

As primed, Lined, and faced !

I got a jump start on him while finishing the Wood Elf Archer !

That's a very well sculpted mini for being so small. Where'd you get him? Reminds me of Prince Valiant :) I also like your mini holder. More office supplies I can liberate and repurpose!

LOL  on the Office Supplies and repurpose.  Just remember to take off the clips after you prime them.

This is a Thunderbolt Mountain Miniature.

Tom Meier does incredible work, and he "hides" elements when you aren't expecting them to be there.

On this sculpt there is a left hand at the bottom of the shield, totally unseeable.

Yes; it belongs there, but since it isn't seen you wouldn't expect it to be in there.

Did a bit of painting on Sir Galahad.

Funny when you paint individual components leaving the black shadows in the miniature.

I was looking at the contrasts as I painted this.

I'm using a Gun Metal Gray here.

I am leaving black in the recesses of the Armor.

I am planning on a white Robe, with Red Crosses.

Shield will also be white with a red cross.

Probably Brown Hair.

I can't believe I have chosen white on the cloth !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh well, Alea Jacta Est ..(Latin:  The Die is cast).

 

Here is Sir Galahad.

I love Tom Meier's minis from Thunderbolt Mountain. They are tiny, but so beautifully sculpted.

 

Galahad here has the stern no-nonsense look he should. Your start looks great.

I have to teach the guy that is wielding the brush around here to wait

till AFTER the second cup of coffee to begin painting, tired of cold second cup !

I'm putting on the base coats of color, in this case dull/dark white, and a base hair brown.

When I took the photos I was amazed as I cropped them to see the effect of the white paint

on the face that was painted earlier.  It messed with the chin and the cheek bones.

I'll have to go back and balance that once I am further along in the white highlighting !

Also the Red on shield is bleeding into the white (maybe I had that too wet when I applied it)

Anyway, learning is a good thing..just painful on a small miniature !

Here are some photos:

Weather has decided to turn into a storm, so had time to do some painting.

 

I forgot how labor intensive white is.  It sets everything out of balance!  sheesh !

I've been filling in voids in the whites, and adjusting that face, and managed to get the hair in (though when I photo

I have to move the lights, it is reflecting as a white, not light brown highlights; which it is.

So I'm playing "touch ups" at the moment.

Here is S. Galahad.

white is hard but your are working through and still coming out reasonably clean... way much better than what I do with white so keep on it.  :;):

Slinging the white paint this morning, the gray toned white just wouldn't behave today.

Finally watered it down and got some good coverage into the folds.

Then things started to improve.

Think I have a good base coat on there.

Seems like Galahad decided he was a blond!

Here are two photos of progress.

      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

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
