Your OUTSTANDING brushwork makes more of the miniature than the sculptor could achieve by himself. The eyes are WONDERFUL. VERY WELL DONE!

      So here is another one in my little series of old and new. I was actually going to post this yesterday as well, but I didn't have a good front shot.
       
      So this is a Grenadier Elf or Half Elf fighter, from their twenty-piece woodlands adventure box.  I painted this figure way back in the eighties to be one of my player characters Renny back in the day when we played D&D at Star Realm in Omaha. Back then there was a buy named Bill if I remember correctly from Offutt who was our DM, another guy, I think Roy, and then another random assortment of teenagers.

       
      and a shot from behind, where you'll see there's lots of grass stuck to the base. I think I just didn't wait long enough for his sealant on the base to dry before I stuck him into the grass. I always paint the base black again and then seal, because I will have ultimately made a mess all over the base while painting it.  Not too worried though, these are being painted just for fun. 
       

       
      and here's the front shot I was missing yesterday, where you can see a bit of difference in the shield and face:
       

      and then just some shots of them in the same photo:
       

       
      So there you have them, a small journey into my adolescent past, up to my current almost 50 year old self, who as per my beautiful wife, is still probably somehow stuck back in the past with my fascination for "muñequitos".  Like I mentioned in my previous posts I've got a few more of these yet to be started, that I'll probably do when I'm "between projects". 
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      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...

      So here's an old Hackmaster figure that Jim Johnson sculpted quite a many years ago. I really like it a lot, gives me the feeling with the pick axe of somebody going into a cave for an adventure.  I kind of wonder about the shield, as it kind of reminds me of a submarine door, but ultimately it's a pretty cool part of the figure as well.
       
       
      Ral Partha just re-released it with a bunch of other old Hackmaster figures as well!

      This will be the leader of my band of snake women and medusae.  It's a quickie tabletop paint job because the Bones casting isn't great but I used the opportunity to practice some NMM on the weapons. 
       
      Head shot:

      Hi All!
       
      I've just been rearranging my display shelves & have noticed that I actually have a few minis that I have never shown on these boards. They are the first ones that I painted a few years ago when I returned to the hobby after many, many years. I will show the others soon but to begin with, here's GW's Gandalf The White & Shadowfax.
       
      The actual paint job is essentialy me getting back in the swing of things by copying the image on the miniatures' packaging, I made the base terrain(s) using air drying clay, gravel & sand & added some grass clumps to finish.

      Back soon with something "big, ferocious & wingy" - thanks for looking!
