    Marin MarDoomed Mariner

    Post  Ray on Mon Jun 13, 2011 7:19 pm

    This gnome is a one piece casting except for the pipe holding hand, by Nemrod/Historex Laughing

    The name on the plastic bag read Marin, so I presumed he is a man of the sea, a mariner Twisted Evil

    He'll be depicted as a marooned mariner on this tiny island which will be surrounded by water lol!
















    Marin's marooned island, walk around Cool

    There is a dead flying insect at the front of the base What a Face actually an insect & a head of his brother stuck downside up for clarity Mad

    There is also the remains of a Spider which got half of her legs & abdomed devoured by ants Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad before I painted the whole thing lol!

    The acetate wall is stuck with GATOR GLUE (Doc you are an Angel...Ooops sorry Alex you are an ArcAngel I love you ) & it will serve to hold the resin mix pour at the end pale
    After the Butterfly Princess's water little set back, I'm AIMING to come out with guns blazing on this one Razz

    Just finished fixing the 3 GIANT WINGED ANTS & THE WINGLESS GIANT ANT that I caught from near club onto the Micro Island (love it JF I love you ) Evil or Very Mad

    Fixed them (AFTER I SORT OF KILLED THEM with a needle lance No ) as they still twitched afte a while & covered with diluted PVA Glue as the Gator is in the construction workshop downstairs Sad

    Now the whole thing is on the bathroom window which is ajar so that everything will be dry by morn & hoping that the other micro ants are not Cannibals monkey & won't devour my Giant Babes Suspect I'll brush them with Gator tomorrow as I said if they're still there that is pale

    Alex, I know you'll LOVE & SMILE re this whole process cheers

    Tried to Google Gnomes but did not find anything spectacular so please redirect me at your convenience.....no hurry as I am painting the Consul first I love you

    Isma Ray, if he is in such imminent danger of being eaten alive by huge insects, why is this guy so cool, has he something up his sleeve?

    Actually Bri, at first, I only thought of depicting him as a marooned mariner Twisted Evil

    The idea of the "insects" (since the original half devoured poor spider is not an insect) only cropped up while I was making the micro island Shocked and which continued to develop in my mind since I was not happy with the "puny insects" that dared invade my construction workshop Evil or Very Mad

    So, on Wed & while having a drink & a chat outside club, I saw a GIANT ANT colony + their GIANT WINGED COUSINS Suspect so I hunted & caught what you're seeing in the pics tongue

    My Imagination stops at the scene I am depicting, smiling @ Marin being so unarmed, cool & unsuspecting of the CRAWLING PERILS around him Laughing that is why I altered the 2nd word to MarDoomed (marooned/doomed) lol!

    However, if one had to ask the same concerning question as you did, then he would be opening the doors for further Imagination Laughing

    Marin is ARMED after all pale as his pipe is GLOWING & he's got ALCOHOL in that bottle drunken

    And Marin's HANDS & FEET are quite BIG as well Surprised scratch Idea

    Bri, do you still think he'll be eaten alive by the GIANT ANTS?

    It will make a GOOD POLL if our Insect Expert, Doc Roe (I'm sure his cousin Alex is nothing less on this matter Twisted Evil ) would enlighten us if an ANT of that proprtion, compared to poor Marin's stature, is capable or not of winning the encounter, knowing that an ant is strong enough to lift 7times or how much her own weight affraid

    Of ants and stuff...

    Post  Dottore on Fri Jun 24, 2011 11:28 am

    For the record ants can lift up to 80 times their own weight by their jaws...ants on their own are rather insignificnat and uncapable of major waring feats...But swarms of ants like the Amazonian army ants (as the name implies) have been known to even attack successfully unweary animals and even humans...so their power lies in numbers...much like the Sherman tank Twisted Evil

    Judging from what Doc just wrote and seeing that maybe our little friend is limited to being attacked by a few random ants and not an Amazonian army of ants, then i guess that his huge fists and legs are enough. Subject closed from my part!
