Qui-Gon Jinn (Part II) & Happy New Year!

Posted in Sci-Fi on December 31, 2011 by botwt

Spent a few hours on his face between last night and today…it’s coming along, just not sure about the left eyebrow, reminds me a bit of Spock, but still works for the expression on his face.

Last post of 2011, hope you guys have a safe New Years holiday!!


Qui-Gon Jinn (Part I)

This guy has been sitting with the rest of the unpainted masses for what seems like ever. Today I filled the horrible gaps where his arms were attached with my Liquid Green Stuff…I tell you this stuff works wonders! The funny thing is after I primed him I noticed for the first time this miniature has a really nice sculpt for a plastic model! The likeness to Liam Neeson is remarkable! Now, for once, I am actually excited to paint this one.

Dwarven Color Scheme Revisited

Posted in Lord of the Rings / Fantasy on December 28, 2011 by botwt

The original plan for my Lord of the Rings Dwarven Army was going to be blues, silvers and golds, but I’ve decided to head in another direction…blacks, greys and browns because of the look that Peter Jackson went with for Thorin Oakenshield in the upcoming film is really starting to grow on me.

Here are my repainted Ori (Loremaster) and Shield Bearer in the new color scheme, along with two new models I painted…a Khazad Guard and his Captain.

Vader’s Secret Apprentice

Here is my latest Christmas miniature…Guild of Harmony Miniatures ~ Karick-Dar, Apprentice as an alternative for Galen Marek/Starkiller. Instead of the blue saber and normal eyes I decided to go with a red saber and Sith eyes.

Knight Models Boba Fett

Here is my completed Boba Fett from Knight Models. This time I stuck with the traditional color scheme (Empire Strikes Back) instead of the prototype white armor I did on my other version of him. Hell of a fun model to paint, and probably my favorite 30mm KM miniature to date!!
