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

ROFL.  I am honored.

I look forward to seeing what you did with it !

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 everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Another zen of Bones…i.e. not a lot of effort and didn’t remove all the mold lines, but it is good enough to play with. The colors are a tad washed out using the Reaper portable light box. I thinkI am going to spray paint the inside black to quit messing with the exposure on my iPad. 

      Anyways, here he is. C&C welcome. 



      Cheers-Mike
