2715: Sir Justin, Templar Adventurer

Recommended Posts

I feel I've been painting just long enough now to see through the simplicity in the colors into just how much work and artistic skill goes into a mini like this.

I can see people looking at this and just thinking "Meh, just a green shirt and brown backpack?", without noticing all of the subtle color changes, not just one or two tones, but tons of shades!

 

Spectacular work, I am in awe.

      Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe.
      I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS.
       
      Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017
      Sculpted by ??
      Bonesium PVC.
      30mm round lipped base
      should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
       

      Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister?
       
      I have cut off the integral bases,  as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.

      Here is my Knight Templar.  This is the first model I painted after about 5 years of not painting any miniatures.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      This is a bust from El Greco: Deus Vult / Militi Christi.
       
      I painted him as a Knight Hospitaller.
      Learned a lot on the way.
      There are a few white specks in the pics, I was taking them outside and this is actually not there.
      Also there is more depth than the pics show, some shadows are washed out by the camera.
       
      WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85635-deus-vult-militi-christi-bust-by-glitterwolf/
       
      This one is going to be shipped off as a present to a certain person.
      It will be a surprise and I wonder how it will be received.
       
      Here he is.

      "During the opening stages of the Great War, it was quickly discovered that the human mind was too fragile for soldiers to spend any time in areas that had been heavily corrupted by Void Space.
      One of the solutions to this problem was to lift the restrictions on deploying Automaton Troopers to the front-lines. Drawing power from naturally occurring energy fields and equipped with self repair and competent AI systems, they could theoretically operate indefinitely without contact with their human creators.
      However, despite being deployed in large numbers, in the end they did little to halt the advance of the Void.
       
      Centuries later, many can still be found and most pose a threat to the humans they once served.
      This particular model, now known as a Flower Knight due to the flora it spontaneously generates around itself, is not openly hostile to anyone it comes across but will not tolerate any damage to the gardens they both create and guard."
       
      Presenting the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death.
       
      This is another one from the Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM that's been waiting for me to bring it back to the table for a final painting session or two. It's not a patch on the many, many other Flower Knights out there on the Inter-webs, but I'm really pleased with it.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
