This is a whole new ballgame for me.

I switched over to brush on primer, and had my socks blown off.

I didn't realize how much of a difference that primer would make in the crispness of the Mini's edges.

Its shocking how much detail is NOT covered over.  Makes me look at my former stuff and get a bit upset.

I'll just move forward on these.

 

I'm looking forward to painting this one, and see if I can capitalize on the crispness of the sculpt.

Going out on the edge :)

 

Here is the Queen Guenevere (Standing).

glad to see you attempting the damsel in distress finally!   Those Knights need something to do.  :upside:

GUENEVERE

(spoken)

Sir Lionel!

(sung)

Do you recall the other night that I distinctly said you might

Serve as my escort at the next town fair?

Well, I'm afraid there's someone who I must invite in place of you

Someone who plainly is beyond compare

That Frenchman's power is more tremendous than I have e'er seen anywhere

And when a man is that tremendous

He, by right, should take me to the fair

 

SIR LIONEL

(spoken)

Your majesty, let me tilt with him and smite him!

Don't refuse me so abruptly, I implore!

Oh, give me the opportunity to fight him

And Gaul will be divided once more!

 

GUENEVERE

You'll bash and thrash him?

 

SIR LIONEL

I'll smash and mash him.

 

GUENEVERE

You'll give him trouble?

 

SIR LIONEL

He will be rubble.

 

GUENEVERE

A mighty whack?

 

SIR LIONEL

His skull will crack.

 

GUENEVERE

Well...

(sung)

Then you may take me to the fair

I really love the gusto you go at the mini's.  Watching you post your wip's and see your progress helps motivate me, in a good way.

 

Oh, and yes I've found brush on primer helps me prepaint and get a feel for the mini.

Thank You So Much Silvervane !!!!!!!!!!

I love the challenge of making something that is dull, hard, and grey, and turning it into a living thing.

I have friends that say that they are waiting for the miniature to step off its base and talk to them. :)

The highest complement I can imagine. 

Thank you for you kind words, and your work is also magical... lets spur each other on !

Jay Bows.

Definitely brush-on primer became my favorite too!  Partly because I get a little carried away with the spray can trying to get everything covered!  :blush:

 

I'm looking forward to seeing whether it helps you level up with your painting.  ^_^

Julie Andrews was incandescent, just incandescent as Guenevere. (My husband courted me playing show tunes from the Broadway plays he had seen growing up.)

 

I'm glad you like brush-on primer so. Good luck with the painting, moving forward!

Hope he wasn't courting you with the tunes from Man Of La Mancha !  "I'm only thinking of him, I'm only thinking of him, In my body its well know, there is NOT One Selfish Bone"..ROFL.

I saw that play in its third week and almost croaked laughing.. !

I lived an hour from NYC, and had access to tickets cheap ! (or Free) !

Think Hair on Broadway, and a performance of Parabola were my favorite performances in NYC !

I was really blessed !

Out of curiosity.. what time is it there?

It is 2123 (or 9:23 pm).

 

 

I usually picture you starting a new project in the AM with a fresh coffee or two.    Welcome to the night owl side of things.. 22:29 here!

Prepping after waiting for two days for the primer, and matte varnish delivery.  Then cleanup of four miniatures.

So, now that I have cleaned, glued, primed, and decided on what order I am doing things, time to clean the desk,and get

ready to rock and roll.  Another ten minutes and I will have a cleaned out work area, refreshed and ready to go tomorrow.

:wow:

      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.

      Malak breathed the cold air and smiled. This day had been long coming. The journey to the Frozen City had been difficult, wizards of his like had difficulty procuring supplies in the so called civilized lands, even in the rough towns near Felstad. Still, goblins could adapt to any situation and this one was no different. The eclectic band he had managed to scrape together stood with him now on the outskirts of the ancient ruin, ready to stake their claim at the riches that lie within. His first in command was his apprentice Grubb a Weiben goblin from the Reaping lands to the south.
      After him was Murdo an infantrygoblin of the Heartstabber tribe of Impact Crater in the Oldhammer Mountains, and a likely candidate for leadership over the rest should it be required.

      Polg and Mog were Manorheim goblins from just north of the Reaping lands and reasonably useful with a bow and axe, respectively.


      Gik and Moosh were from a nearby Bighead tribe. While both were foolish creatures, Gik was good with his bow and Moosh was quick with his feet and his dagger.

      They were also good with animals. Fearful and mistrusting of dogs they had brought with them giant rat creature they had tamed and named Squeaker.



      His final member was a brute of a goblin named Malg from the Thunderbolt Mountains.



      Louts and fool’s the lot of them, but competence cost gold, and that was coming soon. Besides if they die, at least he'll be able to buy better help on the next excursion.

      Unfortunately, Murdo had been less competent than hoped, dying shortly after impaling the "mouse wizard" on his spear. The Manorhiem goblins suggested calling in a trap expert from their village by the name of Grinner. Hopefully this one will prove more useful.

      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
