Sir Forscale (Garrick The Bold 77008)

Recommended Posts

So Since Bryan decided to hold a contest, I decided to join in!


I decided when I heard about this, and the stipulations of the contest, I knew that I was going to steal an Idea that I have seen here on the forums....


Someone had taken an older pikeman figure, and painted bands 1/4" apart on the pikeshaft, to use him For Scale!

I saw this before I knew who / what Sir Forscale was / is, so the thought stuck with me.


So I removed his sword, and added a pike from a Ral Partha Wood Elf Pikeman from back when....


Reaper Brush on Primer on the Pike, as it is metal, then everything was airbrushed with thinned Grey Liner...


His Chainmail is Decayed Metal, going up to Brass, and he will be painted in Reaper's colors of Red, Green, and Black.


The pike will be marked in some way to indicate specific measurements, and I plan to try a Banner to fly from it as well...


I am a little worried about how to make sure he stands up, as the pike is a tad bit unbalancing...


First cut pics....

Thanks for looking!

To balance him out maybe add a rock behind his left foot? Or a helm or weapon might fit his look too.


Edit: Forgot to add that your plans for Sir Forscale sound cool.

I have to double check the rules about the basing for the contest, but those sound like a plan. ..

Lots of work here....


Decided on a halved color scheme, as I can't think of any way to do a quartered with 3 main colors....


Victorian Brass on his Chainmail, Black Metal on all the Plate....


MSP Christmas Wreath and Scale 75 Deep Red on the tabard and shield. (Did the shield quartered for the hades of it...)

Tassle on the spear the same, plus some Decay Black...


Gloves, shield straps, and belt are 50% Black & Brown Leather


Back of shield and Pikestaff are Birch, over a mis start of GW Bubonic Brown...


Banner is scanned from an old blister pack cardboard from Tolan the druid, cropped and mirror imaged with photoshop elements.

It is not attached yet, as I am trying to figure out a way to make the words read right on both sides, but keep the colors correct also...

still need to work things up a bit more, but hopefully the painting will finish tomorrow....

then I can expand the base so he doesn't fall over from the pikestaffs weight...


Comments and critiques welcome...

I really like him George. Tho I don't like the back side of that banner and it being mirrored. I think it needs to be readable like the other side.

I agree with you. Thinking that the black and green are just not going to match so that it will be read able on both sides.

I'll just have to print the banner twice and cut them out and glue them that way.

Gotta test the printer ink with DullCote too...

What you could do on the banner is move the dividing line between green and black to the exact middle of the skull.


Then mirror the background only. The word "Reaper" can read left to right as normal on both sides. But the background will be green on the 'hoist' side and black on the 'fly' side. But the dividing line will match.


I wonder if Reaper could provide you with a nearly official version of that...it kinda seems like a great idea for a downloadable thing in the same category as desktop backgrounds. :unsure:

      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Felicitations on your personal solstice!

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...

      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!

      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point
