TBM3016 King Pelenore (on Foot)

Recommended Posts

Looks very good, Jay! I think the base is fantastic, the red and purple are very regal.

 

Critiques - from the pics, the metals seem to be lacking your usual attention to detail. The black helm is very matte and doesn't look to be metallic, I'd suggest adding some silver metallic to the edges where the light would hit and reflect. The same with the axe blade, it needs some dark glazing to dull down the shine in places to give it some shadows.

Thanks UB3R;

I'll put those touches in before I seal the mini. 

Think all this heat is getting to me..ROFL.

It happens sometimes, heat can sap your mental faculties pretty easily. Try to stay cool!

I am on the same line as Ub3r....  I just think you need a nice cool iced coffee or tea  and then another look at the mini.

 

I noticed the hand holding the axe seems to be missing some paint where it connects with the handle and on the thumb.

 

Otherwise I am impressed by the base work as well..  you seem to be paying more attention to them these days.

I had some ice water, and looked it over.  Helm and shield have metal touches.  I noticed a couple of hits from when I based

him, and corrected them.  I also worked on the axe and that pesky thumb..LOL.

Thanks for your input.

Changing schedule for next four days... Painting and Norwegian Lessons, THEN water garden..AT NIGHT !!!

To silly hot to be outside in this heat.  I am working my bases more, trying to make them original. 

The 25mm's come with their own separate set of problems !

Thanks again RobinH

Nice work!

 

Depending on your garden, have you tried to use a soaker hose system?

I spent about $25 on a kit at my local DIY store for mine and it works great for my tomatoes, peppers and onions. ..

Just remember to turn it off!

Cool!

 

I like knights, once you get them out of that tin can they're wearing they taste delicious..

One thing I would do is make sure the sand goes all the way to the edge, and then paint it. The raw sand makes it stand out like it's the unreal part of the piece. :) I noticed that the grass tuft on the right side of the knight is lifting away from the base due to a larger piece of sand keeping it from sticking to the base.

 

Otherwise I dig the colors!

Thanks Darius !

I'll have to use a tweezers and get that grain out, and nail that tuft down.

Thanks for the hawk eye (no pun intended).

I'm really appreciative of everyone's comments, and suggestions.

You folks are catching things that I just don't see.

Magne tusen takk.

You're welcome! Glad to help. I've been doing so many weird and fun bases lately, I'm starting to look for where to put my grasses, flocking and such and what colors to paint the sand as to compliment the figure.

Thank you so very much everyone.

I am really happy to see that star up there, and to know that you liked what I have done.

It honestly was a bit daunting.  These 25mm sculpts are quite daunting at times.

MR. Meier's works are amazingly sculpted, and little details that show up after you have primed and lined them.

I adore his works.  He taught me how to paint with his complex minis.

Thank you for your likes and comments.  Means a great deal to me.

Jay

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!

      So I'm working on a really small figure a newish Tom Meier Halfling Druid from DarkSword Miniatures.
       
      I painted the eyes and was kind of satisfied with them but one seems to be bigger than the other, which means I think I painted the black first outside of the target eye that was sculpted. One eye is okay the other one it too big:
       

       
      so when we get really close to the figure I can see how uneven she is, but she is really, really small:
       

       
      So my first general question is, would this be enough to frustrate somebody to repaint?  
       
      So with this in mind, the "good" news is I just went from a nice pair of magnifying nerd goggles that go up to around 2.5 to some other ones that I have sitting around that are 3.5 x magnification.  So I almost feel I have a good enough view of the eyes to edit it a little bit.  I'm just wondering if it's all worth it?  Any suggestions?

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.
