  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 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Dhaelia - an ub3r WIP

    Another WIP for me to do this week. I've got Isla Darkstep, Reaper SKU #02698 which I'm painting up for my final D&D player. This one is going to be painted up to look like a drow. Anyhow, getting started, I have a couple pics as I got it cleaned and prepped now. Again going with black primer first and then I'll wait until it dries and do some white primer dry-brushed over it to pick out details. I just placed her integral base on a 1 inch circle of wood that I like to use for my bases and then put some procreate around the edges and sculpted the stones to match what was on her base to the best of my limited sculpting ability.
  5. I should have taken some pictures before the beard went on. The face was BEAUTIFUL. It looked rather like my fairy lady's face. He was gorgeous. The most feminine face I could have possibly done... on a dude. A dude with a twisted smile, but still. So I tried to cover it with some stubble. Looked a bit off at the lips. So to conceal that his lips are a bit funky, I went "heck with it" and gave him a twirly mustache and a goatee along with the five o'clock shadow. Did it work? Or does he still look like a lady with a stick-on beard? Nothing wrong with androgyny but that isn't my intention with this figure either. How can I get him to look like a young cocky dude thief? More eyebrow? AHHHHH Painting dudes is difficult. The original face before beard was so good I could have done Youtube make-up tutorials for women off it. Great... but that wasn't the plan.
  6. Greetings! Presenting Reaper's March 25th Anniversary miniature - Tara The Silent. 3 Down 9 to go.... Thanks for looking!
  7. Valloa Elf Thief (Reaper)

    I finished Reaper's Valloa, Female Elf Thief (SKU 3566), a fun little figure with a lot of attitude. I am very happy with the blond hair on this one. Her face was a bit miscast, so her one eye is a bit weird. There had to be some reason she decided on this career choice...
  8. Ral Partha Thief

    I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere). My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him. I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?
  9. What is it he's avenging? Did someone eat his lasagna?
  10. Talisman 4th Edition Minis

    Here's another batch of Talisman 4th Edition mini's. These have been great models to practice on, but good grief the production quality is bad. Also still having trouble figuring out how to take decent pictures. Was having problems with them being too dark, now I'm going the other direction. Thief Monk Warrior Elf
  11. A pair of really fun Dwarfs to paint. The Ranger was particularly enjoyable. I think I need to try and paint dwarf hair something other than red. It always seems to be my go to colour when I paint them. I like that the red has a certain "pop" to it but it might be time to expand on my palette choices a little. Maybe next time...
  12. Zanderluck

    Hello, I made this for my younger brothers birthday present. I run a game with him and his friends. His character isn't an orc so I glued a fabric mask on to hide the orcish face. His character (Zanderluck) also lost his left hand and has a cursed gold handaxe that laughs when violent intent is sensed(also will eventually teleport back to him when he throws it or tries to hide it. I spent about 18 hours on it including the base, handaxe and hook. I wish I spent more time on the eyes and nose, that portion could use some more touch up. Also I could have done the rocks on the mini the same color as the rocks I used for the base. The handaxe sadly doesn't have the best grip on the model even after super glue, any tips for adhering metal pieces together other than glue? Aside from that I like critique and am trying to improve so please let me know what you think. (Let me know if the pictures are too detailed, had outside help take them)
  13. Merryn Elmshadow (Reaper)

    Merryn Elmshadow, Female Elf Thief (Reaper SKU 2590) is a classic Sandra Garrity sculpt. Other than the studded leather, I really enjoyed painting this one.
  14. So, using this new version of the forum, very exciting! So just got these two finished last night and photos taken this afternoon. Two pretty simple figures, I actually chose them because they were simple, kind of a "between projects" little paint job, and the added bonus was that they were mostly skin and cloth, very little armor, which is somewhat traumatizing. Reasonably happy on how they turned out. For the thief, her eyes were very deeply set, like some of Dennis Mize's figures are, so once I was actually able to get an eyeball into her, I didn't try to add an additional color or anything And the thief looks a little angry, but I think it's more the sculpt than my paint job, but who's to say for sure? and she has darkish skin and Dark hair, so dark brown eyes weren't too much of a stretch on her anyway. These two came from an old Silver and Steel Partha set from Ral Partha, the sets that were full of Larry Elmore beauties. For the mage, I didn't really go into it with any preconception of colors, so who knows where the reds and pinks came from, but I think it turned out kind of nicely, with vibrant colors instead of blah ones. So anyways, enjoy!
  15. Tara The Silent

    I finished up Tara the silent, a very cool figure sculpted by Sandra Garrity ( I love her work!) last night. I was super happy with her and quite stoked that I managed to do a very good job on her eyes.... .....until I saw the pictures. They look wonky. I'd swear on a stack of bibles that they looked perfect to me under the best magnification I have. I literally cannot see any way to make them better/fix them, but I hate how they look in the pictures. I know that the camera is everyone's worst enemy (I've said it myself more than once), but I'm almost embarrassed to post these... Please let me know honestly what you think. ...and I just noticed that stray bit of paint on her collar. I'll go fix that now.
  16. These 2 also got their Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow, and, Barring some base touch ups, are Done! Red Gunhildr Little Svein Swiftfoot Thanks for following along and Looking! WiP here Now on to the thugs and the warband will be done! (for now...)
  17. So these 2 are being done concurrently with the 2 archers for my Frostgrave warband, so there will likely be overlap with the colors used in the 2 WiPs.... So I started doing the flesh on the next parts of my Frostgrave warband, Red Gunhildr the Barbarian, & Little Svein Swiftfoot the Thief.... GW Scorched Brown, Reaper Linen White & SC75 Tesla Blue for the eyes..... Arabic Shadow, Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh 50%, Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh and Golden Skin 50%, Golden Skin, Golden Skin and Light Skin 50%, light Skin, and a glaze of Golden Skin and Basic flesh 3/2... Gunhildr's hair started with Abyssal Blue.... Svien: Thanks for looking, and Comments and Critiques welcome!

  19. Stonehaven half orc thief

    So here is finally my Stonehaven half orc thief. Got him finished last night. Wanted muted colors, so blacks, greys, purples and blues. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  20. Stonehaven half orcs

    So here are my next four figures and being I did a WIP for the last Stonehaven figures I painted, I might as well do another. So here are the four I chose.
  21. Ral Partha Hyborean Age Female Thief

    So after working lots on Ral Partha Chaos Wars drwarves, here is something a little bit different. Still very old school, from an old Partha line, Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age, a female thief, really simple sculpt from Dennis Mize, a front and back angle, nice figure, sculpted it looks like in 1979. Enjoy!
  22. Ral Partha Stage 1 Elf Thief

    Finished up this mini today. An old Ral Partha mini I got a while ago in a set of three. I didn't like the weapon, so I swapped it out for a Space Marine Knife. At the 25mm scale it looks like a short sword on this mini. Then he sat for a while. So I decided to paint him up as a scout more than a thief. I decided to continue to work on sculpted rock basing (my second attempt). Then I put down some greenery and called him finished. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.
