Title: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 02, 2019, 01:05:31 PM
As a lot of you know I come to this hobby from the history side of life, not like some of you who came out of the womb with a scalpel in one hand and super glue in the other.  So at the moment I am back enjoying doing figure models of historical soldiers.
The Samurai and the Praetorian are new 1/16 scale MiniArt figures and the Hussar was an old white metal Post Militaire that had no work done on it at all.   
The Agincourt archer was from 30/40 years ago and just had the hands and face to do as well as the base. Looking around in the loft found some more figures from when I was at sea, the knight is white metal ( no idea who or what company ) and just has the helmet and morning glory to finish ( that is if I can find the bit of the weapon that is missing. )
Before Haddock gives me hell , I am still doing my ship models but at a reduced rate, to fit in finishing some of the figure models.

Looks like you will have a lot to bring on Wednesday.
Just a lot of trouble and aggravation for you lot -- I may even bring a model figure.
Found the head of the morning glory but the chain is just a LUMP of white metal, so have removed this and replaced with chain ( 17 links per inch before Haddock asks ) will now prime this and then add it to the wooden handle.

Hate to point it out but the arrow is the wrong side of the bow on the archer!
Haddock.
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 02, 2019, 04:00:31 PM
Sorry Haddock but he is only an apprentice and does not know what he is doing - hohoho
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 02, 2019, 04:04:36 PM
Next one to finish off - again no idea who or what he is.
Just for Haddock - at least the archer has the arrow the correct way round -- pointy end away from the body - at least that is the way i hope it should be.
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 06, 2019, 12:44:14 PM
Morning glory finished and added to the handle.
Title: Re: MSea Army

Next model from the loft - a Chas Stadden 75mm Rifleman of the 95th.  Just the rifle and a few bits and bobs to finish off -- don't ask why they were never finished, I have no idea.
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 07, 2019, 10:25:04 AM

Just like a magician  in reverse, instead of cutting the lady in half, now its fitting the 2 half of the knight into one.

Spear head and butt-spike removed from plastic rod and this replaced with brass bar.  Last photo is the start of the leather thong used to give extra grip on the rod.

Top of the helmet crest looks a bit on the flat side so messed (that's more technical words for Zak ) it up a bit with a hot needle.
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on May 25, 2019, 08:54:14 PM
Will anybody notice, will anybody care - the top section has had the pteruges cut and sanded so they are in 5 separate sections, the bottom one is still in one solid bit of plastic.

Hi Msea,

Looking really good.

Cutting and sanding the pteruges is a bit like an aircraft modeller putting a detailed interior into an aircraft, then close it all up never to be seen again.

But, YOU know its in there, same with these, only those who read this thread will probably know or can see what you have done, but YOU know you did it, and hopefully gain satisfaction from making it a more realistic model.

Very nice, look forward to the finished article.

Cheers,
Bigkev

The new member of the MSea Army - I know when he has joined - that is 3627AD during the "Great Xanthine Wars", but what is he called. The list is Billiphant Warrior, Bobiphant Warrior, Keviphant Warrior, Neiliphant Warrior or Zakiphant Warrior.
The FIRST to e-mail with one name from the list will have the pleasure of naming him.
Before Haddock gets on to me, I will be working on the Russian Battleship Orel on Thursday - so don't shout at me Haddock.
Title: Re: MSea Army

The unnamed "Great Xanthine Wars" warrior has now had some basic block colour and also a start made on the base.

Hi Msea,
Zany or What!
But, quite creative and definitely different.
Possibly not the Mushrooms in your area, but what about those plants in your loft??
Keep the thread going, you might even get somebody else creating their own army!

Hair and helmet added to figure. Also a start made on a cannon to go in the background with some defensive works.
After looking up Dutch history have decided to place him at the battle of Maastricht in 1673 - that should raise a few eyebrows from those who follow history/politics   !!!!    just need a blue flag with some stars on it .

Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on September 08, 2019, 08:53:54 AM
To make you all laugh ( I think some of us need a change of topic ) 
As I was doing the weaving used drops of superglue to hold the wire in place - had run out of thick glue so used thin - all OK.  Never thought that some of the glue would run down the inside of the wire and fasten it to the wood base, its now good and fast so will have to cut/drill/hack the wood from the wicker basket when finished.
REMINDER TO SELF MUST GET SOME THICK SUPERGLUE

Next problem "she who must be obeyed" thinks it look lovely the colours that it is. Have explained that at the battle of Maastricht in 1673 it would be all brown as it is made from tree branches.
She still likes the colours, so now I will have to make a different model with this type of wicker in, to stay on the good side - the things we do !!!!  Any ideas for this new model ??????

Day out in Brid and called into Mighty Lancer - decided that this Reaper "Yeti Chieftain should come home and join the "Great Xanthine Wars" of the year 3627 alongside the Zaciphant.   
Zak has had one named after him so this one will be called a "Neiligrunt" -- now what colour are Neil's eyes - hohoho
Nice simple paint job with NO messing about converting and making the background, he will be like the Zaciphant  just stood on a rock.
Now only Tony,Bill,Bob,Andy and Kevin to do
Title: Re: MSea Army
Post by: MSea on October 11, 2019, 11:07:28 AM
Base removed and hole drilled for a pin. Face looks like Neil so no changes to make , cleaning up the  seam and noticed that the head and arm need some filler were they have been fasten to the body. Also the skull on the right arm has a strap on the front but nothing on the side or back so out with the thin strapping.

First coat of Brown Rose on the head and hands and Dark Seagreen on the fur. 
Also found that the strap for the skull on the right arm has been added to the figure at the back and then some hair flopped over most of it - so I was wrong ( yes Zak as usual, before you say it ) so don't have to add this.

After a trip to Brid got this at Mighty Lancer - it will be another warrior from the Great Xanthine Wars in the year 3627.
Seeing as it is a very large brain, it will be a model of Tony from the club committee -- now what shall I call it ?????????

Just had a trip to Brid and have got another 2 models from Mighty Lancer to make, of the club committee members.
First is a "Bobabash Warrior" - sorry Bob.  Second is for Kevin but have not decided on a name YET - hohoho.
That just leaves Bill and myself to do in the future - and Andy just in case you thought you had got away with it. but have not seen any with a yellow high vis jacket at the moment.
