love the sculpt - the painting and weathering effects are a great compliment to his weary expression - all in all a very evocative work of art - thanks for sharing!

Awesome awesome job, Jay! He's fantastic and so is the simple but very effective base.

 

Only critiques- paint the edges of the banner red too and I would've tried to sculpt the original basing flooring to the edges of the wooden dais/plinth.

The Melancholy Norse Lord was a JOY to follow through all his W.I.P. stages AND a BEAUTIFUL creation now that he is finished...your perseverance is TRULY commendable. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Thanks Ub3r;

Astute observation on the banner edges.  I never thought of going over them with red.  Write that in Next Time Book.

I was originally going to carve out the base area, except that kiln dried wood was as hard as a rock !  LOL

Next time I'll find a way to sink the base.

He was magnificent to paint though !!!

Thanks Kitenerd.

It was fun trying to go along with that despondent feeling that I picked up as I started painting him up.

I kept thinking of a dark night as I painted him up.

Such a great sculpt though !!!

Enter him in the 54mm challenge! There is still time!

Thanks for sharing that info.

Ub3r gave me the link.

Thank you for your "Oh So Supportive" words.  I consider you such a master of this art; with your whimsical spin on creatures, that praise

from you is very dear to my heart !  I just got some anthropomorphic characters, so I'll be watching your posts for inspiration !

You did a great job bringing out the brooding look!

Thanks Citrine;

This sculpt just evokes so many emotions.  I was amazed to see the "Brooding nature" start showing up as I was painting.

What really made it for me was "there were NO horns on his helmet".. and I saw elements from my visit to the vikings museum

on Bygdoy in Oslo.  That really sealed it for me.  The heads on the throne are from a sledge they dug up near Holmestrand,

Where my family is from.

Nicely done on such an evocative piece. ::):

Thanks DZ;

It is so rare that you get a miniature that just "talks" to you like this one did.

I'm sad to see it done in one sense, but it acquired such epic importance to get it done for me.

The 54 mm had it's own set of "problems" to conquer, so it was really a great challenge.

      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:

      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.
