DSM8018, Brave Sir Robin the Scaredy Cat

Recommended Posts

Brave Sir Robin is one of the first minis I finished, and still one of my favorites. 

 

Of course, mine doesn't come anywhere close to what you've done here.    

 

You even got the details on the butterfly!

Even Bert Lahr didn't do cowardly that well. The Brave Sir Robin is a DELIGHTFULLY whimsical, BEAUTIFULLY painted creation. VERY WELL DONE once more!

Awesome job as always!

 

As for Sir Robin's Bravery, let them laugh!

Hiding behind your shield is a perfectly normal reaction for cats when WOOF unleashes the Chihuahua Cavalry mounted on Pittbulls.

 

As for the Paintjob:

I'm glad you like it, thanks for the comments. Brave Sir Robin was not part of my cultural background. I've learned about it while looking for information about the story behind the model design. Who said we could not learn new things while painting? :poke:

With its big eyes, for me the insect that landed on the shield is a dragonfly, that's the reason why I painted its body blue and I was aiming for a transparent effect on the wings.

I'm guessing you used glazes?

Yes, it's glaze on the shield. ^_^

I'm glad you ordered the model, there worth.

Thanks again everyone.

A Dragonfly have long wings with broader back wings than front wings, if Wikipedia is to be trusted. 

Then again, I've never seen a butterfly with such big eyes. 

 

Whatever. It's a stunning paintjob.

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him
