    Welcome to the second painting “contest” of the Mithril painters League

    All miniatures that enter this contest should be related to this theme:
    [large]“Plate armour, is it a myth or not?”[/large]

    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 [mith]lr17[/mith]) or full plate armour (like [mith]m271[/mith]), 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: [mith]MS589[/mith] King Ostoher from Cardolan
    2. Turambar: [mith]M239[/mith] Orodreth of Nargothrond
    3. Ddaines: [mith]MS534[/mith] Isildur and the One Ring
    4. Milo: [mith]M93[/mith] Zalg the Goblin-King
    5. Maenas: [mith]M247[/mith] Elf-warrior of Nargothrond
    6. Thingol: XXXXX
    7. Gerold: [mith]m432[/mith] Infantry with sword/axe (Lossarnach)
    8. Axel: [mith]m273[/mith] 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 ;). I can always give it a light coat of another primer.

    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…

    I would like to paint this Lossarnach infantryman (M432). I already gave him an undercoat :

    Mmmm I like having news from Germany like these. This makes me thirsty.:P
    Master Thingol ? may I request your choice ? ;)

    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 . . .

    Very promising indeed. I recognise also the old project. Great to see it today. 😎

    Master Thingol, I was wondering which mini you will choose for painting challenge. ;)

    One of the rohan warriors. I bought 3 of them 2 weeks ago…. but I will see what will be the next painitng topic… I have also in one old box one dwarf, Gondor officer and one orc chieftain… This week I will finish painting last released mithril figures but not for this challenge …

    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 . . .
