Now for Something Totally Different:

 

I may need to order some smelling salts by the end of this post..ROFL.

I know that most everyone expects to see another Tom Meirer Mini after Galahad that I just completed in Show Offs

I adore Thunderbolt Mtn Mini's, and Tom Meirer is a great way to learn how to paint, however, its time to switch-up, and learn something new,

and get different mini's going.  I'll still come back to paint another 25mm when I need to. Lets just

have fun, and expand my painting kingdom.  So here I am in Outer Space (or is it in somewhere closer bye).

This is the Horde Warrior from Tin Man Miniatures, and that Ain't No Knight !

He is primed, and waiting for some lining.

You know... I waited FAR too long to paint one of these...Its Hysterical !

I need a course in Alien Anatomy...ROFL.

What a RIOT to paint, I am totally free to do whatever my little brain can come up,

there is NO right OR wrong on these pupies.. No Heraldry rules (didn't know I was following

those did you ?),  No Rules on Tinctures, Metals on Metals, Black touching Gold, Silver touching

White. it doesn't apply.  I have just spent several delightful hours putting a lining, and a base flesh color

on this critter.  Its a Blast !

 

Here are three photos:

That's some interesting musculature around the lower shoulders! It looks like it will a blast to paint, looking forward to seeing it progress.

John Carter of MARS strikes!   or as someone said already not Thark!   (just in case you need some reference material Jay you can always watch the movie)

 

This is definitly not a knight by our standards so yes I am Impressed and it is almost a goblin... just one from a mars!

Gee, a whole cup of COLD coffee on my coffee table!

What a surprise..NOT..LOL

Can't make coffee while I start painting in the morning, I'm just begging

for it to be cold.

I've been shading the body, filling in gaps that I missed, and having a blast creating two tones

of flesh on Miniature.  I have his shadow layer in pretty smoothly I think.  Interesting how the background

went from Green, to Green/Gray once I started using the camera to record progress.

Here is where the Horde Warrior now stands.  Oh, has pink eyes at the moment.

I think he is looking good so far !

i was looking at the miniature and said "No Guts, No Glory".. (Ala Bob Ross).

I then sat down, and did some mixing.  Yellows, greens, and finally got to the Neon Green. Mixed that

in with the Olive green, and got the intermediate Highlight I was looking for.

So... compare and contrast these photos with the ones proceeding.

 

I like the way the muscle groups are now showing up distinct from one another.

I have also set myself up with a set of muscles that now await a major highlight, when I get the other

stuff entered. 

Needless to say; I'm having a great time with this one !
