Frank von Stein

by Massive Voodoo

Hey Jungle,

in late 2016 Roman finished a very cool model by Terrible Kids Stuff, its name:
Frank von Stein. A very weird concept out of Paola Parente's Dust universe and defintly a unique character in 75 mm.

By little accident Roman was forced to do some small conversions on the model, first at the claws, followed by the upper body additions. Pure fun. There will be a future step by step on this project as well to explain these happy little accidents.

Captain Garfio

by Massive Voodoo

ARRRRR!!

While starting this in a private coaching session with Meg Maples, Roman is happy to show you the finished version of his Captain Garfio, sculpted by Lucas Pina.

"This is mine, I dug it out, my treasure chest ... do not challenge me!" - Captain Garfio


A very pure character to paint.
A joy to paint. A lot of Pirate Music was playing while this was finished.
Roman did paint this on comission in the end of 2016.

Old Barbarian

by Massive Voodoo

Aloa -he Jungle,

time for another project Roman did finish in the end of 2016.
Roman's studies of painting stuff up leads him to weird places. This result here is definatly one of these places. Roman calls it "genithal light" and enjoyed his studies on it a lot.

Good News is he did so many photos that he might be able to write a big article sooner or later on his thoughts, ways of achieving something and his steps while swinging the brushes on this old barbarian. Miniature is by Black Sun Miniatures and was a joy to paint.

This project is in private collection. Thank you Mr. C. for your support in Roman's art, passion and work.

Keep on happy painting!


Update on Spartan Warrior - Kopis and Aspis

by Massive Voodoo

Hi Jungle,

Roman finished a bust of a Spartan Warrior by Pegaso in the end of 2016, which was not finished at all. Now it is finished, because it was missing something.

An Aspis (shield of the hoplite) and a Kopis (sword of the ancient hoplites).
Roman asked Raffaele Picca if he would sculpt this for him in 3D, Matt Cexwish's Pro Tools did the 3D prints in Berlin. Thanks also to Kirill Kanaev who helped Roman to get a shield by Young Miniatures. In the end it turned out that Roman and his client had to decide what shield to use ...


Really sweet work by Raffaele.

Kopis in place. Check.

Shield #01

Both options. We decided on the right one as if you think about the scale of the model (1:11) this shield needs to be bigger than the version on the left. In real a Aspis was about one meter of diameter. Super-huge, but super-protective and super-heavy, only for super-strong ancient warriors.


Right size.


Roman finished the paintjob on the shield and the kopis and attached both to the bust. His client was superhappy with it and they are already planning their historical project for 2017.



If you want to see more photos of the project, please check back with Putty&Paint.

Workshop News - Two Advanced Classes canceled!

by Massive Voodoo

Hi Jungle,

we got news around seminars/workshops for you.

Even they have been announced, 
the following classes will not be held due the lack of student numbers. They will be canceled. We are working on a solution which makes the MV's Jar's Advanced Class more interesting for people who even did not take the Beginner Class yet:

Please understand that there is no offence in this. It is simple mathematics and also some private decisions in Romans life. We will come back with better plans on the Advanced Classes in the middle of the year. The one in Blumberg-Achdorf will be held as the class is full with 16 students.

Sad news we know, but do not worry this often leads to something good in the end.

 Keep on happy painting!

 

 

Luna's soldier

by Oli aka HonourGuard

Hello,

some time passed since my last post.
I made a lot updates on my personal pages, some interviews for homepages, but didn't share anything here. So I thought it would be a good time to write and show you some news again. Or also older works that I have finished over the last year.

In the past year I worked on a lot comission works, the most I have every did and it was a really great time in basing and painting, with interesting projects and clients. But also had some personal figures to paint. I had the opportunity to create a lot after my personal decisions, so I still was very flexibel in the development of the projects. I hope in the future I can work more with comissions to make this as a part time job to my regular work.

I want to start with showing you Luna's soldier a nice female model from Nocturna, I liked all their latest releases with the female models a lot. And so finally I throw some colors on a figure of them. I think it was the first bigger female model that I have painted in all time.

Luna's soldier, with and without colors

Luna's soldier:

Together with the client, we decided to create a nice diorama base with big stairs. I wanted to give it a more unusual, fantastic look with the aborted stairs and a dark and cold color sheme. For the base I picked up and old WIP-Base and started to sculpt the basic volumes of the stairs and the archway on it. In the next days I added the stone structure to this volumes with Milliput. I wanted to create a very interesting stone structure on it, which gave me a lot playground for the painting and basing process.

Create the basic volumes:

Created little rough walls with Milliput: 

Finished Base: 

Now to colors and to the final result. I tried to realise a very dark atmosphere on the figure and on the base too.








I hope you like this version of Luna. Here are the links to the complete gallerys you can find in the net:

Franchise Draft - Football Players

by Massive Voodoo

Hi Jungle,

you might remember the review we did on some cool looking
Football Player Models in 32 mm by Franchise Draft.

Their Kickstarter arrives in its final stage - four days left - and not much is missing to make this become alive. Maybe it just misses your help? Well, Roman decided to go for the angry Ref Miniature and the Heavy Metal Anthem singer, really cool.You can have a look over here:

Franchise Draft - Indigogo

In the meantime Roman also painted two of the reviewed players. Just for fun and joy. They look pretty cool and as Roman was asked to do photos of two painted players, painted by MG Studios from Spain - he also did photos of all four. Frankly, what amazes him the most is the superdynamic poses and action going on as soon as more of these miniatures come together. 

Check these:



Roman painted exactly the models he was reviewing last week. A catcher with the number 13:
 And a linebacker ready to tackle with the number 87:

Both painted on high gaming standard, but nothing too superfancy, only the shoes of number 13:



So superdynamic moves. 
Let's hope this comes alive!
