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;

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!

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.

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

      Okay, I just joined the forums so I'll be posting my "backlog" of finished minis.  This is one I did for a contest earlier this year.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...

      Greetings to those of the Clan Reaper!
       
      I think this has got to be one of the quirkiest figures I've painted, a Chickinasaurus sculpted by Tom Meier from his Sparkle and Savage range, from Theoland! 
       
      I was a bit confused as to what colors to make him, so thinking about chickens, I tried to imitate a nice brown chicken with a green tail, hopefully he turned out okay:
       

       
      a really nice and simple figure to actually paint!
