  1. So I started a little project in which I have five or six figures, old Grenadiers, that I painted when I was a teenager in the eighties. I found new copies of them and have started doing comparative paint jobs, ones from the eighties and my new job from 2017. I did my first one, Frito the thief: and now I'm doing one for a Grenadier thief mage, which I think came in one of their old Grenadier paint kits. So here is the version from this century: to compare him against my original version, painted somewhere between 1980-1986: and then here they are together: In this particular figure I tried to use mostly the same color scheme, with a few exceptions. I changed the color of the flame and tried to create a "vial" hanging on his belt, which I don't know how well it worked, but it's kind of my first attempt at liquids and bottles. With his dart bandolier on his bicep, I gave that a bit of color too. Anyhow, enjoy, I'll have another one done tomorrow, and a few more in the wings, a monk, cleric, and a wererat at the very least...
  2. So I spotted what looked like a sweet little wolfman, unpainted but inked a little over the metal and glued to a square of wood in a comics shop some while ago and bought it and took it home and pried it off the old base and discovered it said "Grenadier 1987." Score! Turns out it is a werejackal, coded MM93, and was first released as part of the set "Monster Manuscript Vol. XI" which also included the one Nosferatu-type vampire I didn't have in zer old days from the set of three I painted recently. Anyhow, I cleaned it up and painted it like a black-backed jackal 'cos they look cool. There is no WIP thread. Also I had a picture book of Zimbabwe and decided to play a little bit with backgrounds.
  3. Grenadier Vampire

    Here is a vampire from Grenadier’s Monsters large box set. I’ve been gradually getting all the undead creatures from the set, I think this is the last of them. Question: is he running after something or running away from something? I can’t make up my mind. Maybe a bunch of villagers with stakes is hot in his heels? Why wouldn’t he just polymorph into a bat or wolf, either of which could go much faster? I think if a vampire is running, he’s doing something wrong.
  4. Grenadier Orcs

    Grenadier Orcs I found these two at a flea market recently. I got my first pair and painted them about 1982 when I was 10 years old. Take my word, I did a better job this time.
  5. Grenadier Lich

    Here is the Lich from the Grenadier Monsters box set. I didnt highlight the robe. I wanted it to stay grungy looking. I’m not sure if that was a mistake or not. How does one highlight a grungy purple robe? What color mix would one use?
  6. So I was feeling a bit nostalgic, alongside of the affection I already hold for old school miniatures, so I've decided to begin "repainting" some old figures I'd done way back when, I'm going to say in 1983 or before/after. I graduated high school in 1986 and after that totally forgot about miniatures until maybe around 2004. Anyhow, I've repainted Frito the Thief, a Grenadier model I had when I was young. With the new version, I did have to resculpt the nose because it was flattened by time. My other issue was whether I wanted to keep the same color scheme or do something different. Ultimately I stayed very similiarly with the clothing color scheme, but ended up changing the skin tone and hair color. I kept an orange turban, but ended up muting the color a tad. So here's the modern version: and now the original version, painted sometime in the eighties: and then a few side by side comparisons: So what do you think, any progress over the last thirty- odd years? I've got a bunch of these that I think I'm going to do as time permits. They really are some very fun miniatures to paint. The proportions aren't perfect, but they really do have lots of personality!
  7. So I have been looking at a parts drawer I have that has doubled for Years (okay going on decades now haha) as my metal miniatures storage case till the mini's get painted (so yah it's full haha), and I noticed that I still have ALL of the miniatures belonging to Grenadier's "orcs of the severed hand" collection (white primered btw) and since I am not sure I will ever paint them, I was looking on Ebay to get an idea if it would be worth it. Noble knight is selling one for $95.00, is that a fair accurate price? I may not have the box, but if I do, is that what they would go for? I also have encounter at skull harbor (though mine didn't have a sea monster, older set?) and a WWII set as well:) are these in demand?
  8. Grenadier 2007 Females #9: Dwarf

    The dwarf is the 5th figure that I have painted from the old Grenadier 2007 set. It was so hideous that I never posted it, partially because I didn't really like the figure and just slapped some paint on it to call it done. I mean, those eyes were just sculpted circles. I filled the center with color, edge highlighted the raised outer edge, and then went around them with a shadow color. If you are an aspiring sculptor... never ever sculpt eyes like it is 1980. But I was talked into posting it, so blame 72moonglum and Volksfest for the horror. For scale, here is the dwarf between and Infinity Nomad and a Reaper bugbear. Knee-capping is her only option.
  9. Repaint of an old figure

    So I'm thinking I'm going to be repainting this old figure that I have another copy and here is my question. Should I repaint with the original paint scheme or should I do something totally different? No wrong or right answer, just looking for opinions.
  10. Grenadier Wraith

    Here is the Grenadier Monsters box set wraith. The glowing green inside his hood and sleeves doesn't show up as brightly in the photos as it is IRL.
  11. Grenadier Skeleton

    Here is the skeleton from the Grenadier Monsters box set. I tried to make the bone more interesting than the usual tan+wash+drybrush.
  12. Grenadier Wight

    Here is the wight from the Grenadier Monsters box set. Since wights hate light, I should have toned down the base and made it dirty/rocky. Oops. Another experiment with Army Painter's Strong Tone. This time with pale gray skin instead of the greenish flesh of the previous zombie. I'm not as happy with the gray + Strong Tone look. I added the bone. As I mentioned elsewhere, all the undead models in the box set have their right hands raised up for no apparent reason, so I feel compelled to make a reason. In this case, he is gnawing on a bone.
  13. Grenadier Zombie

    After watching Sorastro's Zombicide painting videos, I had to give Army Painter's Strong Tone a try. Here are the results. I didn't spend any time highlighting after the strong tone, except the hair. He he reminds me of the opening scene of Walking Dead with the solitary zombie walking through the fields.
  14. Reaper Townsfolk of Dreadmere 1

    Townsfolk of Dreadmere 1 03789 by B. Ridolfi and Grenadier Begger
  15. Grenadier Mummy

    This mummy was hungry when he woke up. He is now snacking on the poor adventurer who woke him. He is making a mess on the mable floor of his tomb as he is tracking the blood around and dribbling on the floor. The pose was a bit strange with one hand held up and one hand near his face, so I tried to make sense of it by putting a big bloody hunk of meat in his outstretched hand. It's a bit gratuitous, but I'm ok with some gratuitous gore once in a while. If I ever use it in a D&D game, he is definitely tearing someone's arm off on a "natural 20."
  16. Grenadier Goblin??

    Okay, this one has been sitting around for like foreever just primed, so I decided now that I have the Reaper LTPK, i'd start trying to finish him. I am pretty sure its a grenadier model, and that its a goblin:) but if someone else knows for sure, please let me know:)
  17. Summoning Circle and Conjured Face

    Finished up another old school model. I've had this loose in a box for years. Lost Mini Wiki says it's from a Grenadier set called Wizards Room. but I have no memory of ever buying that. Both the summoning circle and the cauldron are from that set, but I'm not certain they were meant to go together. This was fun because I was able to use some colors that I don't use very often, and this is the first time I've done anything with OSL. I'm on the fence as to how well the OSL turned out. Some angles work well, other angles not so much. Comments and critiques welcome.
  18. Enchanted Fountain

    This Enchanted Fountain is part of the Grenadier box set "Encounter at the Forest of Elvenwold." I received it as part of a large collection of old minis given me by two childhood friends.
  19. Grenadier 5002 Mummies

    Here are 2 Mummies from Grenadier's large Monsters box set 5002. I want want to paint them up for tabletop, but as they are they are pretty boring, and strangely posed. I'll grind off their bases and pin them on a cracked and pitted stone floor. Any other thoughts on how to make these guys pop? Maybe they should be dangling something from their outstretched hands?
  20. Enchanted Fountain

    This fountain is from Grenadier's Dragon Lords range: "Encounter at the Forest of Elvenwold" box set, circa 1982. I've cleaned, pinned, and primed it.
  21. I've liked this mini since I was a teenager. Finally got to paint it up. Thanks to everyone in the WIP thread for your advice!
  22. Another one finished for my Lost World Project. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=71#comment-1531812 This is an older sculpt from Grenadier. I used a little water effect on the base to make it appear more swamplike. And I clipped off some plastic aquarium plant pieces to paint as jungle plants. Added a tiny piece of driftwood from the garden centre. Hope you like it. Feel free to comment.
  23. Grenadier Barbarian

    Loved this mini so had to paint it up. Grenadier barbarian, not sure of the model because I clipped the metal base off.
  24. 3 Player Character minis:

    I've decided it's time for a show off thread for these minis. WIP is at http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73535-lexomatics-spring-2017-pcs/ I'll post pics in a bit after I've cropped them. Juliette first
  25. Lexomatic's spring 2017 PCs

    I decided to start painting up minis for my various PCs -An unidentified Grenadier Halfling fighter (chain & shield) as Lvl 7 Rogue, Magnus Perrywhimple (soon to be con only) -Mystic Theurge as Lvl 1 Monk/ Lvl 1 Rogue Stede Blackthumb (Acolyte of Candlekeep), on an acquisition mission to atone for learning and copying ritual magic without permission -Juliette, as Lvl 1 Half Drow Sorceress, Grz'zilda (the Ghastly Gourmet) who was rescued from Hillsfar and while hiding her heritage is now adventuring. I've done a few passes at a few things. But not full base coats yet. Photos later.
