So- you should hurry up, Milo! You will recognize lots of details while painting those figures . . .

Re: MB560 Contest !

Well, after 3 weeks of late delivery, I feel the constest is over for me unless Mithril can delay the deadline.
Painting MB560 in 2 next weeks without any week-end free is impossible...

Re: MB560 Contest !

I started some undercoating yesterday evening, still, I do not want to haste and waste good painting just for a contest.
I will contact Michael to request some delay.

Re: MB560 Contest !

Iīm seriously thinking to make me a Mithril Christmas present, and Iīm between The unexpected party and the White council. If there will be a prolonged deadline for the contest, may I could have my council painted.

But itīs a remote opcion (I havenīt ordered it yet)

Anyway, Iīll love to see your works on that wonderful piece

we will soon see the results of a special commission to determine the taste in coloring... I guess that we mustn't left any pictures here before we sending them to Michael.... or before the competition ends...

Re: MB560 Contest !

It's rather odd to be wandering around at Home Depot and wonder to oneself "how would Elrond decorate?".

It's finally here, but I missed the post today, so I have to wait till tomorrow for delivery.  hmm
I do hope the contest is extended a bit...

Re: MB560 Contest !

so far I have painted the base... but I am slower than anybody when it comes to painting, still I really like this base

it is black marble with shades of dark grey, and the design on the floor is gold thinned... the whole thing is varnished using bight varnish to give the impression of polished black marble... all in all it is exactly how I have imagined it (in orthanc)... will send u pics smile

Re: MB560 Contest !

I definitely will not take part in this competition. Did I tell you before? I don't know. I don't even find that bit of time to take some pics of some conversions and a curiosity I want to place somewhere around here.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing all the results of your interpretations of that Council-vignette. Keep on everybody.

Re: MB560 Contest !

So my friend from Monpellier, you have take your choice. And you take the marble floor.
I am not quiete sure still. Though I made the decision not using the marble optic . . .
Though your description sounds very expectently.

Re: MB560 Contest !

I managed to paint the base floor yesterday's night ! I went to bed at 3 o'clock though....roll
Back in the contest now! lolcool

I chose also marble floor, but made 4 different kinds to hilights the rosace.

It just looks fantastic to me, which is already quite surprising as it was the first time I success in marble painting
Many thanks to Arthadan for the tutorial link! tongue.

Re: MB560 Contest !

Well Master Archer, I was back in the Pony after I drunk 2 coffee at the office at 7:30 this morning.
I think tonight, it will be hard to paint without falling on the bed.

Re: MB560 Contest !

oh well that indeed changes my priorities... I had given up painting or taking time for that, now I MAY be able to make some progress though I am not a very skilled painter hmm

Re: MB560 Contest !

I have decided to paint some maps on the MB560 table.
Could any of our professionnal painters provide some clues on how to paint such small details ?
What kind of tool would you use ?

Re: MB560 Contest !

first I would draw the map, for that I would make a miniature of an existing map, print it and use it to draw the border with a very thin pen on the metal surface ... this way you have the drawing...

then with the drawing done you can use hues to give life to the maps and use thin pencils to make some runes or in this case I would use microscopic thin rotring ink pens

Re: MB560 Contest !

I will certainly also paint some maps. I can only give the advice to use a very thin brush. Without having a concrete idea . . .  roll
