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:

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 !

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      I had a lot of fun this this one, On top of making him fly, I really wanted to make it look like he was from a black and white movie. Doing that but keeping everything  distinct with such a limited color palette was challenging. I really enjoyed this project.
       
      I hope you like it.

      Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro.
       
      The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi
       
      You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here:
      http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/
       
      We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well.
       
      Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!
