  1. I had two copies of James van Schaik's 02863: Female Werewolf, so I decided to paint them with slight variations. I've painted them with realistic wolf coloring. That is, they are colored like actual wolves that have been pulled and distorted into humanoid shapes rather than the solid black or gray common in werewolf depictions. WIP thread here.
  2. So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white. With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out. Here is the link to the third miniature: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG And here is the photo this figure came from: And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?
  3. Hello guys and gals! So just got these two photographed this afternoon, two Children of the Night old school Samurais, from two different packages. One is a Female Samurai, out of an old Samurai Player Characters package or something similar, and the other one is a dwarf samurai from a Dwarf Player character set, beautifully and petitely sculpted by Dennis Mize. I painted them both at the same time in an attempt to use the same color schemes, hence saving a tad bit of time. I'm pretty satisfied how they came out, even though I have doubts about the female samurai's eyes. These are though very true 25 mm figures, really small, so I don't think I want to keep messing with them, as don't want to make matters worse. Here's the Female Samurai: And here is the Dwarf Samurai: Here they are together: and this is kind of fun, I actually painted the female samurai as per the records I found, in July of 2007, so literally a decade ago, and here is that comparison: In which also the eyes were a bit obnoxious to work with, but in my old paint job, they ended up being pretty large. The older version way back then would have been painted with craft paints and brushes I would have gotten from Michaels. So anyways, hope you enjoy!
  4. And here's the little Partha figure I finished. I've always enjoyed these teeny weeny figures (back when 25mm really meant something), and this is one of Dennis Mize's old Children of the Night figures, probably sculpted around 1979. As I mentioned in the post with the Stonehaven elves, I am really happy I discovered a button that brings the color back into my crappy photographs with the editing software. I've got my other little Partha Wizard I'm working on, as well as another Stonehaven elf.

    Ral Partha Oriental Dragon

    So here's a dragon I just finished, an old Children of the Night Oriental Dragon, sculpted by the great Dennis Mize. It's a three-piece model, where I pinned his head and neck to his body and the wings I super glued a long time ago, and when I tried to pull them off, I couldn't so they just ended up with super duper glue. Not a problem, my figures don't get handled too much, so hopefully he won't fall apart. Anyhow, color was my biggest problem and I don't know if in the end of everything the purple was the best choice, but I kind of like how it sticks out. I took a few pictures as well because it's such a long odd-shaped creature and lighting might have been a bit off and focus, et cetera. So anyway, hope you enjoy. This makes dragon number three that I've painted until now. I actually start out thinking it's going to be pretty painful, but really, no metal of which to speak, so just natural or unnatural colors teeth, eyes, et cetera, could be painting something far more difficult. I'm going to I think just superglue him to a wooden base, basically just so he doesn't fall over, because he is pretty top heavy.

    Ral Partha Manticore

    So here's what I've been working on the most lately, a manticore from the old Children of the Night series from Ral Partha, circa 1979. Sculpted by Dennis Mize, it' s a figure I've always really liked, but have never gotten around to painting. My biggest problem was basically just deciding what color to make his wings. I decided though in the end on Black and Red, and I took a few pictures of him because he's a figure that you need to kind of see from all around, even though he's really pretty simple. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  7. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-244.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-246A.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-248A.jpg So after painting a bunch of clerics and adventurers, and stuff with armor and loads of stuff, I just wanted to paint something relatively simple, so I grabbed these three chicks. I wanted slightly different skin tones, so the one lying down started as fair skin, the one standing was tanned highlights, and the chick with the black hair has a base color of terran khaki. I also just wanted some really simple bases so just put them on bases, covered them as flatly as possible, and just painted a monochrome, very basic base for each one. As I look at their pictures amplified, I see a whole bunch of issues, but oh well. The one thing I'm not too happy about is how it seems the terran khaki chick is a bit shiny. I might have put too much sealer on her, or too much sealer/not enough water mix. Anyway, these are all a bunch of really old figures from around 1979, sculpted by Dennis Mize for the Children of the Night range.
