As I said, its addicting.

Just added some base color...(my favorite activity)....

I get to play and see if I like something.  If I do.. GO FOR IT !

So, the RED is approved.  Like the emphasis of that, and the green is working magic

in the shadows.

So.... are you done yet?  :huh:

ROFL.. NO !

I have cloak, pants, and sleeve base painted !  (I like that red).

I'm still trying to figure out the throne.. I want that engraving to pop, and I want those dragon heads to really stand out.

They need some thought.

Fur's...hmmmm.

He's not going to be blond, thats for sure.. maybe a red head, stache and beard. 

Want deep/dark shadows.  Armor has me going towards antique bronze's.

Light/dark/warm/cold... owww my widdle head !

ROFL.

When they come this good, you put in the effort !

The back of the throne looks like it could have a leather backing (kinda how you have it now) and gold inlay on leather was quite common so you could do the ruins as an inlay of goldleaf.  Then you could embelish the dragon heads as appropriate for an ornate throne.  For them I would look at historical records for longship figure heads and the colors used maybe.

Been working on the Norse Lord today.

Loving everything about this one.

For RobinH, He's a Red Head !  I dislike Nordic blond anything.

I can play with this color.

I've been to the Vikingmuseet in Oslo, so I have seen the things that this figure is based on.

The heads on the throne are from a sledge that was dug up with the Oseberg ship near Holmestrand, near Tonsberg, NO.

It made me think of a Draugr from Skyrim before you put the head on.

What you have done looks great so far.

Thanks Arclance.

I'm having a blast with this miniature.

I usually do 25mm, so a 54 mm BLOWS my mind, with possibilities !

Its NOT convincing me to switch over, but it sure is nice to have room to experiment with color, and balance.

This thing reeks of "OMG I can do this too" stuff.

I really love this sculpt and the color choices so far.

 

The back of the throne looks like it could have a leather backing (kinda how you have it now) and gold inlay on leather was quite common so you could do the ruins as an inlay of goldleaf.

At this scale you could probably do real gold leaf and then paint it to get a more realistic "old gold leaf" look.

Not something I would do at 28mm though (except for maybe a shield emblem) since the details are so small at that scale.

 

I believe that silver inlay was also common on ornate leatherwork if that would be a more appropriate color choice for this piece than gold.

Language lesson done early, ran around like a nut job, and finally

carved out some time for experimentation, and painting.  He's slowly coming

together in my mind.  Made a few decisions, and have a couple things I want to try out.

a visit to the online "vikings museum in Oslo webpage helped.

 

So here is the Norse Lord as he sits now..

Just dawned on me today how much DRY-BRUSHING I have to do..shudder !

Love the pose, the type of head (beard, long hair) & the right arm pose is perfect!

 

Some reason I'm seeing a banner or deer head next to him. 

 

Did he come with a weapon?

      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.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
