I've been looking for that figure for some time now.  Any chance you would sell it?

As you are new to the board you are probably not aware, but Reaper does enforce a no commerce clause.  Even if they didn't, selling her would break up my set!  I picked her up off of ebay and have seen others for auction, though they are usually part of a larger lot.

Thanks!  Sadly I still have yet to get around to finishing all of her companions.

There are some minis that I can hardly find the words to rightfully praise their awesomeness.

 

This particular mini is one of such... Should I drool over the flawless brushwork, or the perfect blending or the impeccable painting of the notorious whites or the seriously expressive expression of her face (which likewise did remind me of Cleopatra in Asterix) or the attention to detail.. I honestly dont know.. 

 

So I just applaud loudly and blatantly ask for more where she came from! ^_^

Great work!  The face has so much character, she is clearly done with somebody's ****.

really cool job on this. have to agree with @72moonglum and @Sanael first thing i thought of when looking at the slinger was Cleopatra.

your struggle also reminds me of the Old Ral Partha miscast of  Belinda, Knight of the Light   I've had sitting around for years but in my case the face was so bad that she doesn't have a nose and the cheeks and mouth didn't fill in so it looks like she has giant mick jagger lips.

In a long list of frustrating things in life, little is as sad and frustrating as to see a miscast face on a miniature.  From what I've been told, that can happen when the mold is not warmed up enough yet.

I have painted half the set.  A search for "Grenadier 2007" brings up four of them... which means I never posted the hideous dwarf.  I'll check and see if I ever took any pics.

And if not, you've got a bit of work in front of you...

 

waiting patiently....

      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!

      So I have been looking at a parts drawer I have that has doubled for Years (okay going on decades now haha) as my metal miniatures storage case till the mini's get painted (so yah it's full haha), and I noticed that I still have ALL of the miniatures belonging to Grenadier's "orcs of the severed hand" collection (white primered btw) and since I am not sure I will ever paint them, I was looking on Ebay to get an idea if it would be worth it. Noble knight is selling one for $95.00, is that a fair accurate price? I may not have the box, but if I do, is that what they would go for? I also have encounter at skull harbor (though mine didn't have a sea monster, older set?) and a WWII set as well:) are these in demand?

      As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it.
       
      Any feedback is most welcome!

      Starting on my second project. Masterbox's World of Fantasy. Box states 1/24. Injection molded plastic.
      Didn't like the Footrests, so added my own.
      Added a cushion for her to sit on.
      Added some rings in his horns for adding reins later. Is now ready for primer
