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.

:;):

      What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave?
      Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side.
      The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time.
      We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another.
      Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA.
       
       
      #628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS.

      From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer.
      These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow.
       

      The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire.
       

      The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.)
       
       

      Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead.
       

      Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others.
       
      These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat.
       

      I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it?

      Here is another wizard from the Greybeards subset of the Bones 4 Core set. This one does have a metal version (SKU 03953) and was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I had fun with this figure. I love the character in these wizard figures. This one is strongly reminiscent of Gandalf. Though I resisted the temptation to go grey I did sneak Gandalf's rune onto the medallion on the back of his hat.

      I started working on the wizards from the Bone 4 core set. I was originally running through the usual themes - brown, grey, red etc. but this colour scheme on a different figure really caught my eye and I thought it would work on this figure. I didn't realize he was supposed to be an evil wizard until I looked it up on line (sku 03847 by Bobby Jackson btw). But hey evil wizards can like bright colours too, right?

      Here is Ava Justina, Female Templar from the Bones 4 core set. She is in fact figure #1 in the set. She was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal SKU 03746. I drew inspiration from GW's Sisters of Battle and went for a clean black armor look. Unfortunately the casting is a little soft in some areas - especially around the legs where the plates and chainmail are not so well defined. I cut her off the cast-in base and put her on one I made with the Temple roller from Green Stuff World. There are fleur-de-lis in the pattern which I thought would be a neat call back to the Battle Sisters.

      Here is Zadim, Iconic Slayer from the Pathfinder Iconics stretch goal to the core set. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal sku 60179. I kept pretty well to the Wayne Reynolds artwork for the colour scheme.
