Re: works

Ahh, the second slowest painter ever ( the first one is Wendy ! ) has finished a miniature. This time it tooks two month. This Rohan Archer is a gift to me from Master Erchamion. I am very thankful of that . I hope, Erchamion you like the result. This archer is being meant to find his place in a Rohan-Diorama which I currently work on.

Re: works

puuhh- a very long journey indeed, this diorama. The first one with conversions, a little bit
I hope you like it and I hope it can show the high quality of miniature sculpting which makes mithril so wonderful . . .

Re: works

Pure Elven craftsmanship! Fantastic, well executed piece - this is what I meant on my comment re the youtube thread in the Pony (which I answered before seeing this smile)

I'm getting quite frustrated about not getting any painting done at the moment myself, but that's life.

Don't forget to send them into Michael for the Fans Gallery.

Re: works

I simply will give up painting any metal pieces ... or rather will try to hide mine elsewhere ...

Re: works

That is really great talent there! Especially with those fine Rohan miniatures! big_smile

Great job! I wish that I could do that.hmm

Are those supposed to be Rohan men or some other group? I ask because of the shield design.

Re: works

Hi Jason, no, there are not only Rohan men. There is the watcher on Sarn Ford also. I think he better watches out for orcs in the fields of Rohan.
To explain the shield design is a bit difficult: the two horses are based on a scetch by myself couple of years ago.
To each diorama there belongs a pack of scetches, art-design-drawings, small and large background-covers and compositions plans.
In the early times I found something similar on those "cards" from those card-playing-stuff by chance in a shop around.
A bit disappointing- everything seems to exist already . . . 
The " SUN " is obviously a design belongs to the film-trilogie. The king´s men of Edoras use it and Theodred belongs to them.
Thank you that you like it, and thanks to all the other fellows.

I think this is called German accuracy!
Everything has to be documented perfectly!

Re: works

Oh, ok. I see the shields more clearly and your research makes sense. I should have figured that out on my own. I am a little slow these days with Lord of the Rings history and movies. hmm

Re: works

Christoph - your work is truly stunning!  yikes  I'm starting to go through the old forums and then I came across this gem!

It's really clear to me that you're a true artist, with a grasp of many types of mediums (painting the miniatures (with oil), watercolor, and design).  My two favorites were the Rohirrim in the forest and the elves in the forest.  I felt like I was truly immersed in the scene.

Your foliage is fantastic!  Please tell me what you use for your grass, your trees, and your plants.

Your bases are great!  I love how you use the natural wood and have parts of the scene spilling over onto the bases.  Very creative visual affect.

Finally, I LOVE your book with the notes and layouts of your dioramas.  I would love to read that book.

I feel like my dioramas are SO boring in comparison (like my Gollum/Bilbo diorama)!  They just don't have the character.  But I'll get some good inspiration from your work.  smile

Thanks for sharing.

George

Re: works

George - let me say many, many thanks to your kind words.
Well, what you all see here is the result of experiences for more than ten years. A lot of time, and a lot of things being learned.
( there are dioramas being build three or even four times until they look like today . . . roll ) So it´s still difficult !
As mentioned there are only natural things in use, like real branches for the trees and:
real moss for the grass ! This real moss turns itself into brown after eight months . . . hmm
Mmmmhh . . . nevertheless I use it !
So- there is an exception on the grass in the Theodred-diorama:
I use „synthetic-grass“ from a German offerer called „ Heki“. ( www.heki-kittler.de ) : heki flor Nr. 1566 .
But I think you will find georgous stuff at woodland scenics ! For me they are the best in "synthetic-things".
I am happy you like the book and I am happy that my work inspires you.
Feel free to ask my whatever you want, George, if it´s possible for me it would be a pleasure to help you!
Thanks for reading
Christoph

In these times of trouble people often forget the main thing. What is mithril about ?
The Man created ( and still do, of course ) marvellous miniatures. You can put them on a coat of paint on and place them into a diorama . . .
And suddenly your heart is full of joy . . . in these times of trouble . . .

Excellent idea and paint job, rita.de ... yes, and I do very much like your way of adding those accessoires. I guess you built those ruins yourself. Wonderful.

Another great piece there, you're putting us all to shame smile, I must get my finger out and crack on with some stuff.

I agree with your words completely.

If there is another painting competition from Mithril you should go for it!

Re: works

I was busy the last week, though the weather was quiet nice in this part of Germany.
I have finished the Halforc standard-bearer of the new range, a very fantastic figure by the way.
I give the pictures to Master Michael as well, maybe he will post them on the webside . . .
Why this one: he will be converted . . .
I will try to give him a larger standard, so these picture shows a state of art which will be changed very soon . . .
Hope you will like that Halforc.
