Mithril Painter's League 02

Welcome to the second painting "contest" of the Mithril painters League

All miniatures that enter this contest should be related to this theme:
"Plate armour, is it a myth or not?"

Maenas wrote:

The general idea is to choose a miniature with extensive areas of metal, does not matter if its only chainmail and greaves (like any of the rohirrim or this lr17) or full plate armour (like m271), and neither it matters if it's alignment is for the "light" side or the "dark" side.

General Ruling:
1. Please keep this thread to post pictures, comments and questions about the miniatures being painted and the work that participants do around them.
2. If you have questions about how this contest works, you can ask/look for them in: http://mmp.faerylands.eu/viewtopic.php?id=772 (under development)
3. This thread will be opened until the 2nd 9th of February to allow participants to post all their work. (maybe extended/shortened depending on participants)
4. A new voting poll thread will be opened with all the "final picture" from all participants once the end date approaches. We will put a link to it here for easy access.
5. This time mounted (horse, pony, monster.. etc...) references are not allowed, with the unique intention of unifying criteria for selecting which miniature reference we all should paint.
6. Participation is opened to all mmp members until the 2nd of February, but the idea is to share our painting/modelling/whatever processes so we ask for an initial image of the miniature, a photo finish, but also at least another one that shows an intermediate stage of the miniature.

Participants on 11 January 2016:
1. Orc: MS589 King Ostoher from Cardolan
2. Turambar: M239 Orodreth of Nargothrond
3. Ddaines: MS534 Isildur and the One Ring
4. Milo: M93 Zalg the Goblin-King
5. Maenas: M247 Elf-warrior of Nargothrond
6. Thingol: XXXXX
7. Gerold: m432 Infantry with sword/axe (Lossarnach)
8. Axel: m273 Cirdan at Gorgoroth

Next to Balrog's feet xD
Is Isildur basecoated in that shiny mithril basecoat? Will it give problems?

@Orc
Seems that you will need to run a little.... Anyways if you wont have a painting block or a real life issue, it should be time enough. 😉😉 Wishing you a nice inspiration as I like this mini a lot.

The base coat is slightly shiny, I'm not sure if I have actually painted any of those really shiny base-coated figures so I will have to see wink. I can always give it a light coat of another primer.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 02

Oh, my Isildur-figure also has that unpleasant primer. I also witnessed the same bad primer on other MS-figures. But the company still seems to have some primer-problems from time to time. That is quite annoying if you consider the price of the figures.

I also want to participate, but I still have to take a look at my inventory to decide what figure I will paint. So long...

Re: Mithril Painter's League 02

So- I can provide first results concerning the base. It is a long-time-ago-started-base.
I decide to expand the long-time-ago built base a little bit.
As I pointed out some weeks before, it is somekind of a re-paint and paint-project of one of the first figures I painted using oil colours.
That was somewhere in 2004. I never finished this miniature.
The idea was a scenery which shows parts of the demolished bridge over the river Narog after Glaurung´s destruction.

As you see I add some more stones and columns parts. Everything is primed with a layer of black oil colour.
Over Christmas days there is time for drying befor I start to weather the parts with grey and white tones . . .

Re: Mithril Painter's League 02

This pictures shows the first layer of white oil colour. Everything has to dry again for starting the second- maybe the last- layer.
Unfortunately I forgot two stones !!!!!!! So I have to start the whole process for those again . . .
More very soon . . .

Re: Mithril Painter's League 02

I can tell you something. In this case, how I spent the Christmas days . . .
Well- regarding at the miniature I came to the conclusion that there is something completely wrong with that miniature:
The coat. Never saw such a "fat" coat before. so- I decided to starting to "thinner" that coat that way, that it looks the right way.
So I began grinding and sanding and grinding and sanding and grinding and sanding and grinding and sanding . . . Very toilsome indeed.

Furtheron I flex the pattern off and do the same grinding and sanding work at the backside.

Meanwhiling the two stones had become their first white layer and the figure itself is already "on the cork" ready for some (new) paint.

Re: Mithril Painter's League 02

Great idea on that. Your coat looked even fatter than mine... I would check it out, just for curiosity...
Looks faaaar better now.

And this is also a reminder for all: A little less than a month to finish up our entries!!
