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...
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.
