After thirteen (13) RBG miniatures from Tre Manor, I thought I could

use a break.  So I opted to start a miniature that will FORCE me to really

concentrate on my brush control.  Ser Loras Tyrell, Knight of the Flowers,

is ONE TOUGH painting experience.  Its carved by my favorite T. Meirer,

and the armor, and cloak back look like a nightmare to paint.  So I selected it.

Nothing tempted, nothing learned !  Actually scares the heck out of me; but

so did all his other sculpts I have painted ! 

 

I won't be posting as many photos as I have been prior to this.

I intend to take my time, and enjoy it for all its complexity.  I have just put

a base coat of flesh and been experimenting with the inside of the cloak.  Scheme is

to paint it with Green cloak interior, Blue cloak exterior, Blue-gunmetal armor, gold decoration on

Armor, and I have no idea what I will do with shield, but it will have something on it.

 

So a new adventure !

 

Here is Ser Tyrell with some paint sloshed on.

Sometimes you just got to hop when the conditions are right. I've been dreading doing that shield... I don't have to dread any more. My first freehand is done.  I may fine tune, but its basically d

Agree with robinh... The knight of the flowers could use some flowers on his shield :D

Won't Be Flowers, but I do have a grand plan for that shield.

Might even surprise  me if I pull it off.

Just going to post two photos today.

I am using the gray scale photos when I paint now.

I find it an invaluable tool to balance and enrich my miniature painting.

So here are two photos of where the mini stands at the moment.

I have just spent a few hours using two of my W&N 0 and 0000 brushes.

I have been putting the Brown undercoat on the armor for the gold.

I could hear my brain saying "use the force jay, otherwise you will never find that design"..ROFL.

Not kidding, this is some delicate painting.  Here are a couple of photos of the Mini,

and one converted to Gray scale.

Really look at that Gray scale it will show you what I have been doing !

After you uncross your eyes give yourself a huge pat on the back Jay.  Your brush control is leaps and bounds from where you first started and it is very obvious on this latest sculpt.

 

:devil:

Notice I haven't touched the back of that cloak yet !

I'm going banana's trying to figure out the color scheme.

Once I used the Gunmetal Blue I opened up a whole box of considerations, not bad,

but that cloak is a bear in the making.  I'll get it done.. I may go to lighter green on the cloak,

I don't want to go darker at this stage I think.  Decisions, decisions, and oh... more decisions.

I also have to sketch out that shield, amongst all the other stuff !

PANIC !

see you could have not mentioned the back of the cloak... we would not have known since no pics have shown it!

 

but now that you have mentioned it (tightens the screws)  what color are you going for??

..

and have you gotten the sketches of the shield desgins done yet.???..

      Short Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo games for female Soviet troopers for WWII gaming.  Thiis expands their existing range and adds troops clad for winter.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures
       

      Story
      Hello! This is a Kickstarter to increase our existing WW2 Soviets range. Already massively popular since the first wave launch of 2016, we decided it needs reinforcements! The miniatures are sculpted and master cast, so this project is to cover the funds of production moulds and the initial casts.
       
      BORING BUT IMPORTANT TECHNICALS - The miniatures are 28mm scale and cast in extremely high quality white metal. Everything is single piece where possible. They come without bases supplied but with moulded on small puddle  bases (easy to chop off if you wish to). And of course -   they are compatible with the similar male miniatures from other manufacturers. They are supplied unpainted - so you can either paint them yourself or simply bring out the detail with an ink wash.
       
      Shipping is charged in addition to your pledge, AFTER THE CAMPAIGN, scroll to the bottom for more information. Please don't add the shipping cost during the campaign. EU Customers be aware of additional import fees, more on that later too.

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred

      Hello everyone, here is my spirit of the forest 02690, Owlbear. It was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I placed it on a 50mm base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
      I already had painted this model 10 years ago, you can see the other version here.

      Just one more for now.  I recently received a kickstarter which had decal pages for books and scrips.  They were primarily for warhammer but the author made some changes during the kickstarter to make them more system neutral.  I got them and then went looking for a mini to try them on.  I found Lor Gorna first and this was the result.  I liked the mini and i also liked the color i got on his robes and cloak!
       
      And of course his purpose, the book, came out pretty well too!

      I had a metal mr. Grimm sitting around, so I figured better paint it before the bones version shows up. 
       
      So cold mr. Grimm
