  1. Hello all, another Shadowrun figure I just finished working on, a Tom Meier piece, Shadowrun Female Street Samurai with Gun. There is also a male version of this gal that I'll be painting one of these days in the near future. With the rest of the Shadowrun figures I've done recently, I've done lots of vivid colors and makeup, but this lady looked a little more military-ish to me, so I kept her with a natural hair color, a white tank top and some military green shorts. I just did a very single colored base that I might afterwards actually mount onto a plastic base, not sure about that. It's kind of weird the glaring errors you don't notice until you get these hugely closeup photos, like the seam on her weapons side. Oh well, when you look at her head one you don't really notice it I guess. This hobby is just a continuous learning process! So anyhow, hope you enjoy, even if you can see tons of imperfections!
  2. So I'm working on a set of four, some Meta-Human Subtypes and got this one done first, a female gnome Rigger or Decker. As always, so hard to decide on colors. When I think gnomes I think of either lots of colors or just nature colors, so went with some pretty strong bright shades I think, and blue hair with that cyberpunk vibe that Shadowrun has. After this one, there's a male gnome, a cyclops and a hobgoblin with a mohawk, so hope to get those going soon as well.o When I took her off the balsa wood base I paint my figures on, a little bit of the paint came off the back of the base I can see now, so I'll eventually touch that up. This little lady is pretty small, a gnome lass in a 25 mm world, so she's not too big at all. If ever I remember I'll take a picture of her against a coin for reference.
  3. This is the first of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. I'm not sure if they were ever official Shadowrun miniatures, but they are definitely a 1980s vision of the future. WIP thread (unfinished) here. The red is pretty intense, but tends to dry shiny no matter what I do. Here's a slightly different angle: The woman figure from the set can be seen here. A young woman from the set "1502 Teen Robo Hunters" can be seen here.
  4. This is an old Grenadier figure from the set 1509: "Teen Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. I had a good time painting up her 1980s future look. WIP thread (unfinished) here. There are also Show Off threads for the Grenadier set of adult Robo Hunters, 1502, the female here and the male here.

    Ral Partha Shadowrun Elf Combat Mage

    Good evening everybody, so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages. I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties. Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!
  6. Hi guys, so I'm slowly working my way through some Shadowrun figures, and here is my latest one. This is number three of a set of four Street Mages, one more left to go on the set. Tried to use pretty much just greys, blues and purples, didn't want too much contrast! So anyhoos, not too much metal on this figure, which was kind of nice. Next one hopefully in a few days to complete the set!
  7. So back in October 2017, the night before my first trip to Reapercon, I happened to be on eBay.ca and randomly stumbled across a Ral Partha Shadowrun Feathered Serpent listed by a seller located in Canada. Being the more unusual all-metal variant, the vast majority of them being resin and Ralidium, it caught my interest. Especially being in Canada, because eBay's global shipping program really ramps up shipping costs so it killed my ability to buy from US sellers except at dire need. However, as I needed all of my hoarded money for ReaperCon and travel expenses, I couldn't buy it right then, so I added it to my watch list. Then I went to ReaperCon and forgot all about it. Shortly after I came back home, very exhausted, I fell asleep on my couch with the 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Masters Guide on my face and woke up around 8 pm. For some reason I felt compelled to check my email, and there was an "item ending soon" notice. So, with 5 minutes to spare, I bought it. Now... my life is weird. Not really super weird, it's just that for some reason my reality operates on the premise of "why do something normal when you can add a weird subplot?" And so it is here, because I discovered that this all-metal beastie was made of lead. I had heard of all-metal Feathered Serpents, but always assumed they were later lead-free production on account of Partha's resin experiment going drastically awry and being unpopular with customers. I had never heard of a lead version, and if asked before getting one I would have guessed such a thing didn't exist. So I had a mystery! To solve this mystery, I needed information. So I started at the first logical place - Lost Minis Wiki, hoping maybe there was a clue to be had. Well, imagine my surprise when the Feathered Serpent there not only resembled mine... it actually WAS mine! The very casting I had in my hands! http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Shadowrun_(Ral_Partha)#10-861 So! Since this creature is presently recorded for posterity as the exemplar on what is currently one of the top resources for old miniatures, and as I am never one to turn away from a weird and convoluted tale, I decided that its long-overdue transition from box to beautiful should also be recorded for posterity. So here we are, and here we go!

    Shadowrun Corporate Mage with Staff

    So I continue painting Shadowrun figures, really enjoying them a lot! Tonight's figure is another mage, a Corporate Mage with staff. I see a few spots I'm not too fond of, but overall not too disappointed. I actually like how her black leather boots turned out! An odd little aspect of the figure is that curly, frizzy hair she has. I've seen a number of Dennis Mize sculpts with that hair style. Not really sure why he did that. It was suggested to me that it's because he used often the same heads over again, but still makes me wonder why he did the frizz in the first place Working on her at the same time as I've been working on another gal with the same flesh tones, so hopefully I'll have another one ready soon!
  9. Good evening everybody! So just finished another Shadowrun figure, a Street Mage with a Moon Staff. I'm not sure if the sculptor is Dennis Mize, I'm almost sure it is, but her face is a little different than a typical Mize piece. I'm going to eventually paint the entire set she came with, a bunch of Street Mages, which is why I didn't actually put her on a base, but rather painted the one she came with. It's pretty large and stable and when the other three are finished I'll want to photograph them all together, and if they're all on bases, they might not fit comfortably in the photo. So more to come! Really enjoying these Shadowrun figures. This figure I like in particular because it kind of could fit just about anywhere, she could be fantasy without any guns or modern weaponry or technology tying her down, or she could still fit in with the "post-modern" Shadowrun vibe. I may end up basing her eventually, because I really do prefer figures be on bases because they wouldn't be touched so much. So, anyhows, hopefully you like her!
  10. One of my old Shadowrun mini's I got back in the 90's. originally slathered on some testors enamel paint and called it a day. Imagine gloss hot red for the pants, a white shirt and tan only for the face with wood brown hair. Now he has been stripped, repainted and I think looks a lot better. Still need to work on some things. lighter tone skin shadows and highlight still seem a bit tricky and was at a lose as to what to do to shade some parts of the wasp hand as well as the feet so improvised. I still have to do the same to the 2 wasp forms that came in the old blister pack but going back and redoing these old minis is great seeing where i was and where i am as a painter. you can still get this guy through Iron Wind Metals, Item # DS-053
  11. Hello all, here are some more Shadowrun figures that I've been working on. Two excellent figures, probably sculpted back in the nineties by Dave Summers, two Shadowrun Dwarven Mercenaries. As usual, so hard to decide upon colors, but I think they worked out reasonably well. The first one is a delicate dwarven lady: and her stalwart male companion: First time I've ever painted modern weaponry, so hoping they turned out okay. With choosing colors, in an effort to make my life a little bit easier, I gave them the same color overcoat, just painted different color detailing on them. I find that a nice change of genre is pretty fun, I'm enjoying painting something a little less fantasy and more sci-fi for a while. I'll hope to have more of these coming soon! Enjoy!

    Ral Partha Shadowrun Street Mages

    So switching a bit of genres, decided to work on some cyberpunk stuff, so started painting some Ral Partha Shadowrun figures. These two are two Street Mages, both sculpted by Tom Meier, I'm guessing back in the eighties or early nineties (forgot to check the bottom for a date stamp). With them both, I still see some mold lines when I look, really need to make sure I get rid of those a bit better. Kind of hard to decide on colors for these. When you look at the art that's running around on line for Shadow run, it's a combination of different shades of black or very bright colors, especially in hair, so hopefully the colors I chose made some sense. Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
  13. These are from the old Grenadier set #1502 Robo Hunters from the Future Warriors range, sculpted by Mark Copplestone, a vision of the future from the 1980s. I wanted to paint up some PoC figures. The Grace Jones lookalike was an obvious choice, as was the glowering dude in dreadlocks. The teenager fits too. There's also a guy with some ludicrous hair but I didn't paint him this time. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
  14. This is an old Ral Partha Shadowrun figure, now sold by Ironwind Metals as part of the set 20-568, Male and Female Bodyguards. We're using her for a Vampire: The Masquerade character. I liked her Old School late 20th century futurism look. There is very little actual black on her. Most of that is lots of other colors, mixed. There is no WIP thread, but questions and comments are welcome.
  15. Been taking a break from painting big dragons, and working on some stuff for my ever-ongoing Shadowrun campaign. I needed some opposition to teach my players 'professionalism', so here's Team Alpha... Mostly Hasselfree, and as always my photography is terrible :) And, some group shots: I'm just noticing now how dark these are... I need to figure out white balance!!!
  16. This is one of Crooked Dice's many classic British television homages. Crooked Dice calls him "Hugo Solomon (New Version)", but he is pretty blatantly the actor Jon Pertwee, who played the third incarnation of the Doctor in "Doctor Who" from 1970-1974 (with a return guest appearance in 1983). Whoever the sculptor is captured an amazingly close likeness. I painted up the figure, however, not as the Doctor but as a weapon-shunning magical-academic type for Shadowrun, the cyberpunk game. Although I was trying to paint the figure as not-the-Doctor, between the player's clothing color choices and the highly accurate portrait sculpture it totally looks like him. Well, with rather darker hair and blue-violet iridescence in his hair and on his cloak. Somehow it just seems to make him look more like the Doctor. WIP thread here.
  17. Deep in VR, the icon of the hacker sent to assist Mod screamed and vanished. He stopped, and just as he realized what happened a large wound appeared on his icon's leg. "Crap." He thinks, clenching his jaw in pain. He switches back to AR and looks around the room where he's jacked in. A large explosion had torn the room to shreds, and shrapnel had severed his femoral artery. Blood sprayed from the injury with every heart beat. Only a couple of minutes before he bled out. He activated his earpiece. "Imouto, can you hear me?" He huffed through gritted teeth. High above Essen, atop Lofwyr's back, Maisie heard Mod's pained voice. "Mod, what's wrong?" "I'm hurt, Maisie. Bad. I don't have enough time to reprogram the system. I have to shut it down." "What happened to the other hacker?" Mod looked to his left and saw the other hacker severed almost completely in half by a plate of plasteel. "Dead." "Hang on, Ani. We'll get help!" "No time. I have to set the program now before I bleed out. Love you, kid. Wreak some havoc." Maisie grew quiet, then angry. "Lofwyr...let's bring that oversized son of a woof down." "There is no time! We must get you to the Primer!" The great dragon's voice boomed in Maisie's head. "Then do it!" Maisie snapped. The gold dragon let out a roar and dived into the fray. Back down at the jackpoint, Mod's body went limp as he switched back to VR. He set the program to shut the system down. He went to jack out, but was hit by a surprise attack from IC, jamming his connection open. Mod gasped as everything went black. Outside, every drone and guard linked to the system shut down and crumpled to the ground. Mod's body began to twitch and spasm from the massive surge of biofeedback as the system crashed. The seizure only stopped after the force of the spasms ripped the wires from his datajack. His body went limp and his fried brain forced a few more ragged breaths before his body finally succumbed to blood loss. Ok, so few explanations here. "Imouto" is Japanese for "Little Sister", and "Ani" is "Big Brother". They are not actually related, but are like family to each other. As for the rest, I'll allow you to speculate. ;)

    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

    The big dogs at Shadowrun like my story! They told me to let them know when I'm done with my rough draft, and they'll give me the email to their editor! I'm smiling so hard my cheeks hurt! AHHHH!!! OMGOMGOMG!!! I can't believe this!
  19. So, I have been working on a Shadowrun story that begins in the year 2090 (so after all of the 5th ed stuff). The plot focuses on a 17 year old elf named Maisie, who finds out her father is a dragon (after digging through both Shadowrun and Earthdawn lore, I found that this is a thing that can happen, but only between a male dragon and a female elf, but doesn't happen very often at all. Like, once every several thousand years kind of rare). Her existence sparks an all-out war between Lofwyr and Alamais (who is crazed after faking his death for a second time using blood magic. His "death" occurs in 2074 according to Shadowrun lore, and he spends thee years between then and 2090 infiltrating S-K to rip the rug out from under his brother and finds out about Maisie's existence after taking revenge on the shadowrunner who "killed" him). Most of the big players get involved. Hestaby, Harlequin, Aden, Ehran the Scribe, Celedyr, Sean Laverty, Kaltenstein, Jane Foster, Rhonabwy, Aithne Oakforest (only makes a breif appearance at the end), Schwartzkopf, Nadja Daviar, and even Feuerschwinge. The story ends with Alamais being imprisoned for life, Lofwyr getting the S-K Arcology back under his control and regaining possession of the Jewel of Memory, and Maisie being gifted a private estate in Tir Tairngire and a seat on the Council of Princes. There's a lot more too it, but I don't want to spoil the whole thing before it's finished. Any tips, suggestions, or advice?

    Ral Partha female reporter

    This is an old lead Ral Partha figure, from Shadowrun, I believe. I painted her rather neutrally, so she could be used in a variety of modern settings.
  21. These are some old Ral Partha sculpts (now sold by Iron Wind Metals) I finished up in my year-end Conga Line of cleaning up half-done minis. In Iron Wind's catalogue they are: DS-044 Female Corporate Decker with Laptop and Gun; DS-048 Male Corporate Decker with Laptop and Pistol; and the man from the set 20-524 Riggers & Drones. These are old school figures from the early '90s and are 25mm scale, so a little small by today's standards. The woman corporate decker is especially small and looks to me like a schoolgirl; I painted her up as a Filipina PC for a game I'm playing in. I thought the man corporate decker looked more a Native American than a suit. The rigger has disproportionately short legs which make him look a little odd and he has some sort of campy Captain Kirk in the movies vibe. Shadowrun's vision of the future is solidy based in the 1980s. Adventurers have to cart around gargantuan keyboard computers in their bare hands and physically plug them in to systems with wires. Their version of the internet is hilarious, to say the least. But what can I say? I love campy sci-fi futures past. WIP (along with a lot of other half-finished minis) here.

    50065: Rex, Dark Future Hero

    This is Reaper's 50065: Rex, Dark Future Hero by Tim Prow (there's also a Bones version). As part of my year-end cleaning up of half-done minis, he's a simple tabletop job (given when I started him I cannot lay any claim to this being a fast job). WIP FWIW here.
  23. This was one of the half-finished minis in my end of the year finish-it-up pile. When the news about David Bowie's death broke I pulled him out to finish him. Shadowrun first came out in 1989. This figure (originally a Ral Partha, now from Ironwind Metals) came out in 1993. At the time the future aesthetic was terribly 1980s, and all the male elves looked like Bowie's Goblin King from Jim Henson's movie "Labyrinth". He is a decker. This involves having actual computer implants in his skull and having to carry around, in his hands, a gigantic 1980s-style keyboard and computer, because the future is not wireless. Ah, well. I'm not sure how well the figures sold, since Shadowrun is not necessarily a game that lends itself to minis scale combat (being prone to car chases and virtual reality). I like them anyway, as a bit of '80s retro-futurism noir.
  24. This is one of three figures from the Ral Partha (now Iron Wind Metals) set "Wolfram's Gang." The set has three trolls, a woman with a rifle and pistol, a cyborg-troll, and this fella. His clothing was a little more eccentric than the others', and all that bare skin inspired me to try my hand at painting tiny tattoos on his skull and arms. There's a WIP thread for a whole lot of Shadowrun trolls here. Show-Off threads for the other Shadowrunners are: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, an ork woman street samurai, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  25. These are old Ral Partha sculpts from Iron Wind Metals. They are assorted deckers and /or riggers from the Shadowrun game, i.e. people Of The Future who use computers in a virtual matrix and puppet combat drones in the physical world. It occurs to me that decker miniatures are not much called for, since all of their relevant gameplay is in online virtual personas which don't tend to look like people and in an environment where mapping out positions is impossible, so tabletop gameplay with minis is ... a little diffuse, at best. So I wonder how much demand there actually was for figures of the "meat space" physical reality of the deckers, the people who (this is so '90s a vision of the future) carried big physical keyboards in their hands and had to be physically wired into the computer network, including physical implanted wire plugs in their skulls! I love these figures for their outdated vision of future tech. Also they are lovely little sculpts. Anyhow, I have here the elf man from the set 20-572: Elven Deckers - Male & Female; the woman (who turned out to be an elf) from set 20-524: Riggers & Drones (5); the human woman decker from the set 20-501: Deckers (3);and the orc man decker from the set 20-595: Assets Inc. I: Shadowrunners. At the moment I've primed them with Titanium White and washed them with Burnt Umber. The hair is only blocked in so I can do the faces; it will be elaborated later. I am still working on the faces, although I like this first one: Elves are supposed to be a bit full of themselves, so I tried for a haughty look. Speaking of an obsolete vision of the future, this one is wearing cut-off jeans. I'm dissatisfied with this one's face. Fortunately in-game there are prosthetic "Chibi eyes", so I can paint them over weird and claim that's what they are. This guy is full of personality, although you can really see how bizarrely retro the idea of the tech is. Yep, he has to lug that thing around wherever he goes because there's no way a portable computing and communication device could be made, I dunno, pocket sized. As usual, this thread may be sporadic as my painting time is almost random between art projects.
