Long Shot Loim - Red Box Games.

Recommended Posts

This is the last of the Brigand Series by Tre Manor;

 

Long Shot Loim served under the Duke of Norfolk, He wasn't always a scoundrel,

nor a brigand.  Ever since that fight in the tavern, he had been on the run.

He didn't relish the thought of having another personal confrontation, so he used

his other skill. He was lethal with a bow, and it kept him far enough away from his

target to hear nothing.  He always laid a sword at his feet, you never know if an emergency

were to occur.  He was smart enough to always give himself a back up.

 

Comments and Critiques are always appreciated, and desired.

I really do appreciate feed back.

Jay

 

I have added two photos of the trio of Brigands to the photo set.

So here is Smarty Sean, DIrk the Ne'r Do Well, and Long Shot Loim

together.

Should have done that in the beginning.

Here they are:

Looks good Jay! I like the little bit of glint you put on his sword scabbard at the bottom. 

 

The only critique I would give is how you laid the sword at his feet.  Parellel like that, almost makes one think it is just a stem off the mini.   Next time maybe stick it into the earth at a slight angle so it appears like he can just reach out and grab it to start swinging.

 

(you asked after all)

 

(OH and I see zero orange there.. just saying)

I tried standing the sword up, and it became THE focal point !

I maneuvered it all around and it just didn't look natural, finally I laid it down so that it fit.

It only looks like an extension of the sprue in that lasts photo, its far enough from his feet.

 

I thought you would have picked up the orange and brown I mixed for the highlights on the leather breeches !

Hummm   I definitly missed that.. I did see the brown highlights but they looked more yellow than orange.   More than likely my monitor than the actual image.

 

I sit corrected.   :blush:

Wow, another great job.  Your contrasts on your colors are very nice.  My monitor reads the brown highlights as orange when I look at it closely.  Not a glaring orange, just a nice brown highlight.

Thank you Malefactus, Silvervane, and Citrine.

Since I admire all of your work it makes me happy to hear that I am

getting better.  I've been working on improving the intensity of those highlights,

with an occasional brush tip spot highlight.  Never thought I would do that !

Was thinking of adding a photo of all three brigands together to the photo set ?

Good or bad idea ?

Fantastic idea! You read my mind I was going to ask you to do that today, but got busy.

I have added a two set of photo's of the three Brigands to the initial photos of Long Shot Loim.

I should have done that in the beginning.  They are a threesome group of Brigands/Scoundrels.

Now you can see the inter-connectivity.

      I spent lunches last week on these two stands of Saxons for the Osprey Game Dux Bellorum, in which each stand is a unit on its own.  All of the figures are home cast, mostly Prince August with a few spearmen from Dutkins Collectables. For the Saxon army, I'm doing it all with home cast figures, partly as an excuse for having the molds, partly as an artistic challenge. Practically speaking, there's probably more individualization and detail work than is actually necessary for a mass tabletop unit, but I like to err on the extra side...

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.

      Hi everyone, here is a group picture of my Bugbear raiding party. I painted most of them last year and mounted them on 40mm diameter base last week. These are all Reaper Miniatures models; 77233 Kegg the Bugbear Hunter, 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman, 77015 Bugbear Warrior, 77232 Mogg the Bugbear Warrior and 77231 Rugg the Bugbear Leader. They were all sculpted by Tre Manor, except for Skrug the Bugbear Shaman that was Sculpted by Ben Siens. I used Reaper's MSP acrylic paint.

      Statuesque Miniatures

      Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people!

      You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.
