  1. 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.
  2. Greetings! Presenting Reaper's March 25th Anniversary miniature - Tara The Silent. 3 Down 9 to go.... Thanks for looking!
  3. 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...
  4. 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?
  5. What is it he's avenging? Did someone eat his lasagna?
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. 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...

    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)
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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...)
  13. 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!
  14. So I just finished playing Styx Master Of Shadows and I REALLY want to make a character in the future for an RPG based off of him. I am having trouble finding a miniature that is unique and similar to the main character Styx. Any help would be great. This guy is original. You'll understand if you play the game. Also, Side note from looking up photo for everyones reference, Styx Master of Shadows is a prequel to Of Orcs and Men. I also recommending playing Styx if you like Assassins Creed. The fighting mechanics are a bit annoying but once you get it is can be HIGHLY satisfying. ________________________________ Figure Finder Catalog: Part 1: Styx: Master of Shadows Part 2: Jabba Mod/Gang Boss Part 3: TAKE COVER!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. This is another honorary Old School mini, an Ironwind Metals casting of the old (dated 1982) Ral Partha "Female Thief With Dagger II", catalogue #DF-122 in both cases. She was one of the earliest minis I actually owned, so getting another copy of her meant something special to me. The original WIP thread is here, but I did most of the work on her during the Memorial Day Paint Binge last weekend.
  19. 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.
  20. I love the look of this classic thief. Sack of treasure, sneaking along, cliché mustache. Big fan.
  21. This is another piece of Old School lead from the Box O' Goodwill, Ral Partha's"Elf Thief", 01-319B, circa. 1986. It was sculpted by Tom Meier. For a time Ral Partha had sets of adventurers at three stages in their career: Starting out, mid-level, and high-level. This is the middle figure of the male elf thief set (01-319). Original WIP here. The elf was finished in a speedpaint over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
