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?

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:

      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).

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.
