I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be.  I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's

that I am currently painting.  I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project.  So when it is done, I will

post in the show off Forum.  I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.

Do you like the ligh vice as a large solid base or as a hand rest or as (fill in the blank) ?

I use the plastic vises as holders of the mini's while I paint them.

I also use them to hold the mini's when I am going to photograph them (unless it is finished photos).

They are pretty solid.  I can't see my hand resting on the vices.  These are SMALL MINI's..but the vises

are pretty solid, and you can lock them in place as you paint. 

Hope that helped.

Glad to see you back at it!   I do like how these imperial guards (which they must be to have all that golden armour and the hallowed Orange tunics) are shaping up. 

I continue painting, just had to slow down due to meds and post surgery garbage.

I can't pass up a Meirer sculpt..and I put that orange in there for you (I know you knew that)...

also it makes them a  pair, and I need them to balance each other is basing scheme.

Thanks again.

I have some of these little guys still unpainted.


I will watch your work closely.

They are difficult to  paint, but once you master them,

other things are complicated; but NOT impossible..LOL.

Thank you for your comment.

      I spent lunches last week on these two stands of Saxons for the Osprey Game Dux Bellorum, in which each stand is a unit on its own.  All of the figures are home cast, mostly Prince August with a few spearmen from Dutkins Collectables. For the Saxon army, I'm doing it all with home cast figures, partly as an excuse for having the molds, partly as an artistic challenge. Practically speaking, there's probably more individualization and detail work than is actually necessary for a mass tabletop unit, but I like to err on the extra side...

      Bunny Girls, modeled by Brother vinnie. Need I say more?
      There's also a set of bunnies to choose for those who need a familiar or just to add to a diorama.

      For those of you that know me, I cut my teeth on Tom Meier carvings, and I have made it a habit of painting anything that he has put
      out that I can get my paws and brush on.  I was given Syrio Forel (DSM-5133) before my move.  I started painting him this week, along with
      another two others Meier Sculpts.  I will mount him on a created base when I finish painting him.  Meier sculpts are ALWAYS a challenge.  They are
      small and intricate, they also, at times, carry a surprise feature buried in a fold or underneath a caparison to paint.  So here is where I am on this miniature,
      a day after I started work on it.  I do NOT use colors straight from a bottle, a color wheel is a close friend.  Jasonator.

      It has been SO long since I actually posted anything in the Show Off Forum.
      Since my move to Portland, Oregon, I have FINALLY gotten my apartment set up, with my painting table
      in front of a window with direct sunlight.  So now that I got motivated, here is my first completed miniature
      from Portland.  I was afraid I could NO longer do this..
      So here are four photos:
      Please let me know what you think.

      Since I have moved to Portland, I have FINALLY gotten my painting desk, and miniatures set up in front of a window.
      I've started working on them.  My plan is to set up a royal tomb using 1000 year old oak tree bark, and two Tom Meirer
      elven guards.  This is what I have done so far.  I may have to build the tomb higher, and the placement of the guards is
      just to get them in the picture.  Work in Progress.  So this is my new beginning on the West Coast.
