Truly Magnificent Mr. Jason. I am quite fond of the gold trim on that metallic armor paint job. :)

Truly Magnificent Mr. Jason. I am quite fond of the gold trim on that metallic armor paint job. :)

I based the Armor off  of the "Nuremburg Armor" that is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

I used to stand in front of all those mounted knights in the great hall with my mouth open, and totally overawed.

That's where the black and gold armor idea orignated from.

Wow.. This is amazingly eerie for a light paint job. It just seems to speak to me. I think I have to steal this colour scheme. :D

Great job, Jay!!!

 

My only critique is small, the blending between highlight and mintone isn't as good as you usually do, but overall a wonderful job. :D

Nice paint job, but isn't it Sir Conlan, with an L instead of a T?

THANK YOU Inarah;

I didn't catch the Typo, seems you were the only one !

Nice Catch.

I corrected it.

I thought the name looked strange....LOL

I forgot to mention that the metallic paints I am using were from Vallejo.

I find their blue gunmetal, gray gunmetal, and gold superior in their application,

they flow really well, and I think their pigments are just ground super super fine.

I was unhappy with metals for quite some time until I switched to them.

Very nicely painted figure.  I do believe you have surpassed me in basing skill.

Thanks Silvervane;

I doubt if I have surpassed you at all, I suspect that our resident Enabler has given me one of the clues to good basing.

Make the figure interesting in some way.  Position him/her so that the focus changes, add a contrasting color, or something

unexpected.  In this one I used a piece of cork, cut out using a nickle as a guide (perfect size to fit in a 32mm round base).

Glued some sand to it, then glued down a stone and used the green flock to hide an ugly foot.  If he were old maybe I would have

used a tooth pick as a cane on the ground, or toss a spare broken lance, or sword at his feet.  Its terrific fun doing that !.

I read your statement, and I was totally intrigued by your Comment.

"This is amazingly eerie for a light paint job. It just seems to speak to me"

Could you explain it to me ? 

Maybe there is something in there I could learn.

:;):

      Hello forum family, wanna show you my last work: Sister Hazel.
      Was aiming to a realistic look,  she came out cartoonish  (as always)...
      Had some problems painting the bottles and had to paint it twice cause at first I've inverted the shadows and it looked like Windows XP desktop image -.-
      Still no good, but at least it look like bottles  Same problem with the googles.
      I'm happy with the blood splat and the dirty look, that's probably the only part I'm happy with.
      Anyway:



      Every advise is suuuuper welcome (please!)

      Mat and Pat of the City Guard. Or whatever Reaper calls these minis. So far the only names I have for them is Bones 4 Core set #14 and #15.
      STOP PRESS: Upon actually checking the internets, it seems that they are already available cast in metal, and called "City Guard (2)". A no brainer, really. They are quite obviously just that.
       

      I think I should have done the edging on the lower parts of the tabards differently, the blacklining did not turn out well at all. Looks better unmagnified IRL though.

      So I have finally painted my first Bones Black figures, Juliana the Herbalist and it really was a very nice experience, far better than painting the normal Bones white squishy material. The detail is far crisper and cleaner and this figure was just really nice, not really a warrior or adventurer running around with sword or staff, just hanging out in her garden.  Those two little balls on her sides I thought originally were hedgehogs, but I think they must have just been pine cones.
      Anyway, enjoy!

      In the grand scheme of things, this Ogre Palace Guard proxy for Kings of War Vanguard turned out to be a Half-Ogre Fighter when I googled it.
      Number 4 on the Bones 4 core set graphic, but no official code as of yet.
       
      B4Core #4

      The casual, brute strength on display straight-arming that shield like that!
      As you can see, I had problems with the gradient on the shield. Not really satisfied with that at all.
      He is about the size of an older style Ogre. I rebased him on a 40mm round I printed out.
       

      The armour is thick, and the shield is broad. Weak at the neck, and under the arm ...and behind the legs!
       
      I wonder if the upper parts of the chest, between the plackart and the gorget, are meant to be bare flesh and not armour? It would probably look wierd if I painted it like that though.

      It's all finished. The grass came in, and I finally finished the sword to my liking. For more pics click here.
