Mounted Nobel Oak Guard - TBM

Recommended Posts

While I am serious about painting this miniature (and am enjoying the challenge),

I am also using the WIP for a secondary purpose.  I was given a gift of a cellphone

that takes photos of an extremely better "pixelation" than my canon camera.  So as

I paint this miniature, I am learning to take photos at the same time. 

So that said...

Here are a few photos of the Mounted Noble Oak Guard.

at 25mm it can be vexing, so I decided that I would paint a white horse (of course),

and then use orange (gotta keep robinh happy), and I'm doing tough color combo's.

(Gotta make it fun).

 

Here are some photos:

I should just send you a package that has a tub orange paint which explodes all over you when you open it, Robin.  ::P:  :devil:

Jay Makes mental. and physical note:  You give them a better photo, and they become art critics !!

Sheesh !

 

Since I am doing autumnal leaves, more than likely some orange leaves will show up on the oak sprig plume !

Gosh, I forgotten how small 25mm is..ROFL.

Looks great! Ya those photo turned out well. I'm excited to see your transitions!

 

That is the unfortunate side effect of clarity, in my opinion.

If I am dressed for a SAR event I doubt I would be able to tell if I got hit by the paint....

 

Welllll...

 

Now that i think about it I suspect I would....Unless the paint was flourescent 10 mile orange it would just but dull spots on my search gear.... :grr:

I have to admit that the better quality photos show off and display my faults just as well..ROFL.

The nicest part is that if I do something right, I will see it.

Both the horse, and the rider have their eyes painted in on these.

Usually on the 25mm I just let it go...this time they both have brown eyes.

There are about nine coats of white on that horse, a dark, and a mid tone, no highlights yet.

Who made this exceptional mini?

 

This is another from Jay's favorite sculptor Tom Meirer and Thunderbolt Mountain. He also puts this in the tags at the top.  ::D:

Oh, I saw the "TBM," but didn't know what it stood-for. I often miss tags, it seems. I need to pay more attention to those.

 

Thanks!

No problem!  ^_^

 

Not everyone uses them either, so you are forgiven ... this time.  :devil:  ::P:

      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?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      Painted up this cool dwarf.  Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
