I have been cleaning and filing this Miniature since Sunday morning.

This was a gift from my best friend for co-celebrating his wedding.

Knocked me out of the park when I opened it.

While they are away on their Honeymoon, I have the pleasure of putting

this incredible sculpt together.  Mold lines on base have been driving me up the wall.

So I now have gotten my first 54 mm challenge.  Quite an interesting piece of work.

 

I took some photos as I have started his assembly.

 

Feels good to have a WIP again.

 

Here is what I am working with, oh.. small bag still holds helmet, arms and head.

The helmet (much to my relief) does NOT have horns.

That does a Nordmans heart good.

Jay.

My friend that gave me the miniature said he was MOST unhappy with their service.

He ordered the miniature months ago, and it showed up the day of the rehearsal dinner.

He was NOT pleased with their service.

He's assembled. 

For some strange reason, my camera skills are functional this morning...

Shocking...!

Here is what he looks like, minus the helmet.  Saving that for last, since it will be in the way.

I love what I am looking at here !

I may have to get a few Andrea figures, I've looked at their site a few times, but hearing how unhappy your friend was, I'll look for a US distributor...

Yeah, he said that they dropped the ball quite a few times, and he had given up hope of it showing up before the dinner on Friday.

The Quality on these sculpts is amazing.  The details are very crisp.  I was amazed that they fit together very well.

The only real problem I had was putting the back on the throne (its not flat, so I had to file away at the inside of the base,

and use the tab on the side as a glue base.  It worked.

 

Dooo EEEtttt  Ub3r, YOU NEED these in your collection  !!

You Do, in jay's best Joda's voice.

Au Da (Oh Dear);

Warning Will Robinson, Warning.... This mini is shear delight !!!  Addictive... you can't put it down !!!!

 

In all seriousness, this thing is incredible.

I primed, smile.

I then covered in brown liner... goodness is this detailed.. Bigger smile.

Oh well, I'll just put some color on it.. mmmm... oh, those shadows in face..hmmmm.

I made a color choice of RED for the cloth/cloak.. gotta put the shadow color in first.

Well, at least I got my language lesson done first !!

This Sculpt is a joy to work with.

Take a look and you can see why my toes are curling.

Jay

Better be careful, Jay... you may become addicted to the LARGE models of 54mm+!

 

He's looking great so far!

      So I've always have had problems pinning a round object, more or less trying to get the pin vise/drill into the round part of the piece. In this instance, the round part is the hand of the river troll 14008 (Warlord line). The wrist has a perfect indentation for the "ball" of the hand. With having to travel to play & such & of course actual gameplay I don't trust superglue alone.
       
      Any tips?

      Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro.
       
      The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi
       
      You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here:
      http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/
       
      We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well.
       
      Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!

      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.
