Tin Man Min - Jungle Lord

Recommended Posts

I saw this miniature a while back and asked for it as a birthday present.

It is small, and detailed, and an amazing amount of muscle and skin

to do.  The Sculpt is also really "tight". 

So I may have taken on a headache, but its been primed, so I am

off to the races.

Here are a couple photos.

The inked one is off their webpage.

Its From Tin Man Miniatures.

They have some pretty strange ones on there.

There is a female riding some sort of lizard figure that is incredible looking.

I bet it would be an amazing figure to paint; but isn't my taste.

Glad I found one that you hadn't seen !

True Metallic Metals? 

are you sure its not cheating if the figure has no metal?  Or are you going to do him as a bronze statue.

Now that's a story - what did the savage hero do for a more advanced civilization that resulted in a statue of him? 

 

*scooped*

Tarzan had movies, and a television series,

I guess being "King of the Jungle" is noble enough to get you a statue made of you ...LOL

The sculpt is pewter, and I'm giving him flesh colors, and probably a leather loin cloth, and bone handled knife.

The flesh tones are going to be an interesting challenge..thats a lot of body to develop interest in, and highlight

all that muscle is going to take time !

Jay, he's referring to the fact that TMM is a term used to mean True Metallic Metals for most mini painters. Tin Man Miniatures is not a common manufacturer.

 

I dig the sculpt and also the rider you referred to earlier.

Hah, yeah TMM, better to spell THAT one out.

 

Anyhow great little figure, I dig it, but agree with DF about him skipping the legs days with those little chicken legs!

 

Go Jay, Go!!

I think its intentional though.  It accentuates the ape like qualities of the mini and really gives you a jungle feel.

That's true, with hanging from trees and swinging from vines, he doesn't do much leg work.

Ub3r will be shocked, I pre-mounted him on a 25mm base!  (have to throw you a curve sometimes

my friend) ... :ph34r:

When I am doing this much flesh, I want all those muscles separated buy some good dark areas.

That way I can give each one its own highlight, and contrast, and balance

the colors off each other to keep your eye moving around the figure.

I'm so tempted to do this like a Maui beach blonde surfer (just because it would be funny);

however, it will be brown haired, and more tanned skin, with leather. 

I'm looking at all that  muscle mass...thats a lot of bod, in a small mini !

 

Here he is now:
