My wife and children have very kindly made space for me in the house to have my own dedicated "game room" -- so I've spent the last few days moving everything into it. I've also managed to get a bit more painting done.

I've also found a better spot, with more light, to take photographs of my work so far.

Here's a couple more pictures of the "kid" (who will later become Prince if he wins the game):

Image

Image

Ideally, I'd paint his eyes, but I just cannot work at that level of detail - my hands are too clumsy.


And this is the latest miniature, an animated skeleton warrior, who the kid has to fight in the third level of the video game:

Image

Image

While I was painting his base, some of the gravel came loose, leaving a hole. I found a Games Workshop skull lying about, so I added that into the hole...

Image

This skeleton is the only miniature in the set I bought not sculpted by Dennis Mize in 1990. I think it's a much more recent sculpt by the owner of Reaper Miniatures. However, it's also the only skeleton with a scimitar I could find, and to be honest it fits quite well with the others I chose for this project.

Here is a picture of the kid fighting the skeleton in the game:

Image
I have whirl’d with the earth at the dawning,
When the sky was a vaporous flame;
I have seen the dark universe yawning,
Where the black planets roll without aim;
Where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge or lustre or name.

The next miniature to be painted is one of Jaffar's palace guards.

These guys patrol the dungeon of the Sultan's palace, swords at the ready, waiting to cut down any intruders. All of them have different coloured clothing.

Here is the one I call the "orange guard":

Image

Now, I have four different "guard" miniatures, all of which are 1990 Ral Partha sculpts by Dennis Mize (same as my "Prince" figure).

Here is the first -- he is officially called a "Corsair of the Eastern Sea", but I thought he'd do nicely as the "orange guard":

Image

Image

As you can see, he's ditched his white hat and yellow tabard, but kept the orange pantaloons and purple sash.


Once again, this is a pre-Quickshade paint job.
I have whirl’d with the earth at the dawning,
When the sky was a vaporous flame;
I have seen the dark universe yawning,
Where the black planets roll without aim;
Where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge or lustre or name.

Here is my interpretation of the chap I call "the red guard":

Video game equivalent:

I have whirl’d with the earth at the dawning,
When the sky was a vaporous flame;
I have seen the dark universe yawning,
Where the black planets roll without aim;
Where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge or lustre or name.
