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!

He's entered Xherman1964 !

Thanks for sharing that info.

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.

      Hey everyone!  It's been forever since my last Show Off, I finally got around to upgrading my painting space with a nice lamp so I actually have decent lighting now.  This is a fig for my Goliath character in a D&D game.  There is a pretty bad mold line that I didn't notice until after painting, but at that point it was too late to scrape off.  Overall I'm pretty happy with him and am looking forward to posting again!  Comments and advice are always welcome!  Thanks!

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Latest tormentor for my D&D group. Legs were a bit wonky to put together but I got them in the end. 
      What do you think?

      Since I hadn't seen many other paint jobs go by I thought people might like to see my goblin in power armor.
      And a blood nebula mercenary for scale.
