Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

@Arthadan: are you going to strip and start over again or will you continue your work? those colours look nice ^^

@Milo: I am almost at same stage wink I will try to advance on the mini this week.

@Theobald: As a wise tree you already know that things took their time so, no worries, come and have a look, and if you sometime feel like you would like to participate don't hesitate and do so, this is not strict in any manner, this is only to cheer up our community with some images of our beloved miniatures and to share a bit of our work with each other.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

I will join: this is my current view.
I have stripped off the primer for the metal-effect which is already done . . .

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

No, not stripping my miniature. I did that at the begining and the picture shows my current progress.

Very nice choice of miniatures all of them!

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

I have made some work this weekend wink hope you like it! I also tried a new technique that I learnt at Cmon and from some books that consists in priming the miniature and then giving it a lighter colour from the top with a spray or an airbrush. That way you can better see which areas would get more light, or use it as a reference for future work.

And this is the work I had done this last weekend:

I agree with barliman. Very good work and lightening.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Looking great the Beorning and Radagast conversion!

Master Maenas, don't forget to paint the inside of the bear skin in a light color! if you look at the edges of this bear skin
you'll see what I mean.

Master Orc, I'd sand out the strip on Radagast back and fill with putty the vent to make it look more like a tunic and less like a raincoat.

Also, I think a hood would be a good idea. Maybe it's easier to sculpt a raised hood though. Here you are a reference pic.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

@Milo: It looks like it continues to the knee... xD

@ Arthadan: Oh! I can see what you say ^^' I wanted a rather greasy and used look and I forgot completely that the back sides of pelts are usually a clear colour... Maybe I rework it giving it a little more brightness...

@Orc: I also think that a hood would be nice!! That background gives it a nice presence wink I would say, at least from what I can see in the pic, that the upper part of the staff, does not follow the line of the rest of it... I mean, it looks vertical whereas the rest of the staff looks somewhat inclined to the left.
If you decide to sculpt that hood, I would do what Arthadan says about the rear cape strap and filling the separation of it, on the contrary if you decide to not sculpt a hood I would rather let that strap were it is.

@To all: feel free to comment! this is starting to move wink

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Hello fellows. Is it right, that the "Dead-Line" will be on Nov.11 ?
I am about finishing the figure . . . sorry for posting no WIP pictures, but there is absolutely NO time at all for taking photographs.
Good luck I found time for painting . . .

Indeed the lack of time is a pity as it is that you couldn't take pics of your painting process since the aim of this is more the "sharing with all others part" than the final "contest" but I do understand what you say, so glad you could paint a little and participate with us in this little League. ^^

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Ah- I see. Thank you for the information Master Maenas.
Well- after glueing some small and extra parts on the cork I have to wait . . . and make some WIP pictures.
In this case the base. (the figure is already finished . . . ) Meanwhiling I spend more time for the base than for the figure itself.
Through the last years the base became more important to me than the figure. You can conceal a so-and-so paintjob with an impressive base.
So- here are some pictures:

This is the wooden base. It is eucalyptus-root. Therefore the "holes" are natural and have a great texture.

The other one shows the surface decoration. I took some real granit pieces from Brittany and use some grass-pieces from Green Line/fredericus rex
which are highly recommended and which you can find here:

And Master Milo: hurry up!

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Ah...what I see just brings me joy. Your bases are very inspiring to me, always natural and very detailed.
I love that! And I am very honored to have one at home.wink

And yes, I will hurry up,as you say, once Mrs Milo birthday celebration is over.lol

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Oh that base looks very natural, love his "aura" so far. Thank you for explaining its creation a little bit ^^ And also for the link you have posted. I will save it for future reference, if I don't already have it (can't recall if I do)

If I may ask... Where do you can get that beautiful wood block? self made? went to a wood cutter in search for pieces? a specific shop?

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Well, Master Maenas, if I remember right I bought it three years ago at an exhibition in Germany which no longer exist.
By chance I found them there and bought four of them. This is my last one. Very hard to find those kind of wood block.
I saw many similar blocks, also eucalyptus in Eindhoven at scale model challenge, but without those "holes" . . .

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

Good work in this conversion Master Orc. May I ask if the cat is still "usable" ? If yes, which I doubt, I might be interrested.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 01

I keep meaning to post some in-progress shots of the Balrog, so before it is finished, as of today 2nd November here is as far as I have got so far.

This is a resurrection of an old, unfinished project with a new paint-job, hence no wings but the Painter's League has given a good incentive to finish it off.

The snipers amongst you will note the original wing location holes that still need to be hidden.

This is not intended to be the Balrog of Moria, but one of the creatures at the Fall of Gondolin.
