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!
Knarthex sent me a few Ral Parha Pirates for my Lost World Project.
So I painted the first one up as Old Nedd from my stories.
Here he is on a resin jungle base, ready to seek out gold.
For those interested the WIP is here:
The second of my three February secret projects is done! If you missed the first, you can find it here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73126-secret-project-one-ral-partha-10-420-clutch-of-fear/
I hope number two was worth the wait!
Now, I confess I don't know much about Dragonlance, having never played in the setting or read any of the books. But, as I know we have some Dragonlance fans on here I figured I'd do my best to cleave to the proper artwork. I found many pictures of Verminaard, but few that usefully matched this particular version. I also found the suggested paint scheme for the dragon a touch dull, being just all red, so I took some liberties and tarted it up a little.
I had some issues with assembly, particularly figuring out how Verminaard is supposed to sit in his saddle. He apparently doesn't, I guess, so I made some mods to fit him on... ish. Also, I used old Pro Paint firehawk red for the dragon and it didn't do what I expected when I highlighted, which is why it all just looks red. I didn't want to mess with it and wind up making an Orange Dragon of Krynn so I left it as is until I can mess around with firehawk and control the result, then I might do an extra layer.
One secret project remains! If you liked the two thus far, you won't be disappointed by number three. It will be awesome.
Speaking of awesome (dude), whatever the box art says WE know what this guy is REALLY called:
