I've been seeing this in my box of goodies for a very long time.

I avoided painting it after several other members did theirs.

My turn !

 

I'm heading towards the greens for the cloak, and will wing it for the other components.

Love the dynamics of this Sculpt.

Was a BEAR to glue together though!

 

He has been washed, and primed.

I really like this sculpt. Rated it pretty highly in a review and had a lot of fun converting and painting mine.

 

This is the one I painted- (spoilered to avoid confusion)

It is amazing to me how easy it is to start painting a miniature when the temperature outside is 18F, with high winds..ROFL.

 

I was going NO where this morning; except to my paint desk with my mornings coffee !

 

I am adoring this sculpt.  Dynamic is an understatement !

I painted in the blue eyes and the flesh base on the face and hands.

I also lined the figure.

I know that there are many opinions of how to line, what to line, and where to line.

I use my lining to isolate and highlight for my eye, those portions of the figure that I want to accent, and isolate.

The plumes, armor details, the deep folds (with their extreme highlighting).  I also use it as a balancing tool

to draw my eye around the sculpture like I want my paint to do. 

I get a feeling of balance with the figure.

 

You may or may not follow what I mean here, but it is what I am doing in my head.

 

Enough explanation.  Here is the next stage in my painting of the High Elf Warrior.

It is amazing the motivation that horrendous weather conditions can supply. He of Pointy Ears is coming along VERY NICELY. Having recently seen a painted version of Himself over on L.A.F., I know just how cool he can be. Have FUN with the Elf...no double entendre in tended.

I was pretty upset yesterday when everything BUT the library closed with around 2' of snowfall. I mean, I'm prepared for it with my 4WD, snowthrower and wood stove, but still...I was hoping to have a day to sit by the wood stove and paint!

 

I understand what you're saying about lining. I can get caught up in it, too, helps get a feel for the sculpt and direct your value choices later on.

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
