From AlexS: Sea People Warlord (5 Points)


Hello everybody. My name is Alex, I paint-golik. The second time I participate in this wonderful event. The last time I realized that I could paint quickly. This time, I want to learn to paint carefully and maybe beautiful. In addition, I'm bored just to paint, I need an idea. For example, paint the miniatures, which are associated with the Event participants. :) 


And my first miniature is the embodiment of my association with one of the participants. I think you will understand who is seeing his fashionable hat, smart mustache and beard, and dressed in the national colors.



This miniature warlord sea people (Philistines) is my private order with our wonderful sculptor Dmitry Medvedev. It was a little sdelono copies, and all of them are meant for special occasions. As for what occurred today.


Thank you all for the fact that we all participate in this wonderful event and congratulations to its beginning!

Hello Alex! It's great to have you back with us this year. So, you're trading in speed for a more measured pace? Well, it seems to be paying its dividends as this is a delightful miniature! I do like the headgear, armour and trident. 

Is this supposed to be an allusion to me (i.e. the beard and the Canadian colours)? Hmm, Lady Sarah does frequently cuff my shoulder while calling me a 'philistine' so it wouldn't be too far off the mark!  That trident doesn't look very good for shoveling snow though...

A terrific start Alex. 5 points to mark the start of your efforts!

  11. It's Guy Forks! Trident on for size!

    I make these puns without fear of retari-ation, by the way.

    Great work, Alex, and a lovely sculpt as well! The Bronze Age is one of my fave periods.

  17. Great start, Alex, and a genre I am currently finding rather tempting too (as "Warlord Games" sell 28mm Sea People). Please stop tempting me :-)

  20. I can imagine him saying "Hey you, paint slave! You are behind on your quota. Don't make me use this trident!"
