Lord of the Rings "Goblin Spearmen" - "My Red Devils!"


Hi there,

     the first unit is ready! Goblin Spearmen in red clothes. This time I choose a more intense color to make them look more bright and colorful than a realistic painting.. I will continue like this with the Archers and the Swordsmen so that they can form an army of similar colors. 
    Unfortunately I'm not very satisfied with the faces :( 
    I think it is time for a pair of glasses..Hahaha 

 
    Lots of pictures below to let you have the full prospective and detail..















  I hope I will come up with another post next weekend ...if all goes as planted..(nooot...)


'Till next time..

Painting table update


Hi everyone!

  After a small period away from painting , one week a go , I started to plan my come back! As I was planing to do, late this May I started to paint the Airfix "British Commando" set. But unfortunately that's all of my progress......


     So now I wan to finish with them... But before that...I thought about painting something else to put my fingers (and my eyes!) back to business for good!
  
    As my friend Tiago (Middle Earth Minis) did some days a go( Hola Tiago) , I decided to start again with a classic painting of Lord of the Rings "Moria Goblins" !  So I search up my boxes and I come up with this ..




    Lots of beautiful ( ugly I would say..) little fellows....so... why not to have a mass painting and have them done all together ?

.......So  that's what I'll do :)

Some of the figures are poor painted or just primed, and they come bought from eBay years ago...

Here some more pictures of what you 'll see in the next posts..








By now I have already done the Spearmen and they will be on the blog this weekend (I hope so).





So, that's all for now  ,...I'm happy to be back on track again !! :)

'Till next time... Keep Up The Brushes !!

American Militia Fig.4 (Or...How to destroy a figure..)


Well, yes , sometimes experiments goes wrong....

       I've finished this figure some days a go and I wasn't very exited because I didn't like the texture
of the plastic and also the face details..( looks a bit like a Monkey vampire ! ). but that wasn't all....
      A long time a go I've bought a varnish that was in discount and it was marked as " Velvet Mat".
Until now I was using a satin spray varnish for protection and then I was painting a brush Matt
to beat gloss. It was working good but it was double job. So now that this it is about to finish I said
 time to try the new one...

 JODER! (..like a Spanish would say)!! This is not Matt!!

Ok! I said... I will repaint with my magic Matt varnish and all will be ok..Let's read the instructions..

JODER!! ( again..)...Do not paint acrylics above this product..((@#%$^%#)...It is an Alkyd Resin! 
    
So ok...after a small headache..  I said , why not "Let it Shine!"...This is the result...





 I took the color combination from this painting below...




Some more pictures in other backgrounds.. 




It's a pity, finally , because is a very nice pose but ...with this vampire face and this shinning
outfit , sure it will be a " To be.. Repainted " episode..!

So, I didn't know until now , stay away from Alkyd Resins!!!

Thanx for reading my post and I hope I save someone from Trouble!!

'Till next time...KEEP UP THE BRUSHES!!

American Militia Fig.3


     Hi! I hope you all had a nice weekend and Happy Easter Holidays!

      As the "Militia " project continues, one more figure is ready for the shelf ! I think this figure
 should be much more a hunter than a fighter !! The angle that he's aiming looks like he's aiming
 for a goose rather than an enemy :)



A nice pictures found at the web to inspire me...



Here are some more pictures ,different angles and some artistic!













Thank you for watching and have a nice week!

'Till next time.... Keep Up the Brushes!!

American Militia ( Minutemen ) Fig.2

     Before my next Airfix project ,(witch will be "British Commandos" set ), I decided to proceed
with this project with some more figures... I have finished one and I have three more primed and ready...




    These figures are from Accurate "American Militia" set and you can see some details below.




 





 

       Historical: Those troops where also called "Minutemen" because they where civilians ready to form a group and get to the fight within a minute after receiving a message! Highly skilled in weaponry and strategy they where one of the most important forces during the war for revolution!

   I really like those figures , they have excellent detail and historical accuracy! I 've been  inspired this one by these drawings here..




   This is my first flowered base and I'm not 100% satisfied... I'll do my best with the next one :)








Here are the next three to come....



Thank you for visiting my blog!
 I hope you like the post and being inspired!
