Might want to ask Bob if it's ok. I'm sure it is but since it's his site and forums I'm not sure if you can just start a GB without letting him know. A private message to him might be the way to ask. I f you've already asked then disregard...[wink]

You're probably correct. I had not thought to ask. But this isn't really going to a group build thread anymore. More like a workshop or tutorial with many participants. Still, it doesn't hurt to ask. [smile] Good lookin' out!

Looks like since this tread was moved down here we've been given the nod. Thought about getting a figure that would be different, but instead decided to pick up a wwII us ground crew set to go with the p-47 that I'm going to start eventually after I finish my phantom. That way the figure I paint will have a home once he's finished.

Yes it is. That is the "smoke and mirrors" part of miniature painting. Its not something we will be using for every figure. But it will work to my advantage on this one.


So, yes, Bobby has given us a green light! He has given me moderator powers here and I have asked him to include Pete and Nigel as well.

I have invited Bobby to join us when he has time and I can't wait to get some input from him. I bet he has some good tricks up his sleeve.

That will be perfect Kenny. I believe Pete will be able to advise you on how to best begin that type of figure and you can pick up what I will be showing and use that advice as you think it will apply.
Unlike my dwarf you won't want to start out by painting him entirely black. Lol

I've not seen a figure painted this way before in a step by step, so I'm very interested to see the techniques

Do I have to salute you now Sir, Mike, sir lol

It would be cool if Bobby jumps in, i would love to get some tips from the Guvnor

No saluting and "Sirs" will be frowned upon. Lol

With figures like the dwarf, because he's a white metal sculp, there are a lot of deep areas that lack detail that you won't want people to see. This style is all about bringing the eye to where you want people to look. So that they get the illusion that the figure has great depth and a fantastical life of its own.

There is a bit of parlor manic to this style. I used it on the marine and no one noticed. That's a perfect execution of the technique. [smile]

This is what I will be teaching in this round.

So the figure painting is "on like Donkey Kong"?--LOL. dates gentlemen? this should benefit everyone by some measure. I have been looking at figure painting videos lately and I think Bob plans a detailed paint on a figure in the near future--think I heard him say something about it in the October Show??

If he did say something about figure painting I was distracted by the boat step by step that he announced. That looks like it's going to be pretty cool.
