I love these old school minis and the various ways you've approached them.

Was just ooh-ing and aaah-ing over those tiny, tiny, tiny gems on the barbarian's belt and baldrick.

What fun little guys! I think you did a really nice job with them. I bet the shaggy barbarian was both a pain and a pleasure to paint. He has so much character!

I saw a comment, it might have even been from you knarthex, about how it's hard to get used to painting those tiny little twenty five millimeter figures.  That's all I've been painting now for quite a long time though, so if I started painting Reaper figures it would probably feel like I was painting giants!  That was part of the fun painting some Stonehaven elves I did recently, they were so huge and easy to paint!

Likely it was, as I have been shifting back and forth from Partha to Reaper to Fractured Dimensions, and I have to re-adjust between scales....

I've got a few of Tom Meier's teeny weeny little hobbits I want to paint one of these days. The bad thing is they are really, really small, but the good thing is being so small, they shouldn't in theory take so much time and they are pretty simple figures, no extra's, such as bags, backpacks, money sacks. Just the figure and his weapon.

      So it looks like Frost Giants are all the rage these days on the forums, so I'll add one more, eventually two.  I have been watching Patrick Keith's frost giant queen ever since she came out on the Bones Kickstarter and got her not too long ago, but didn't feel that I could actually start on her until I got some of my older frost giant pieces out of the way. The first two on the docket are John Dennett's classic Frost Giants from the Grenadier's Giant's Club, where each giant set came with the piece of a map and an obelisk. I'm not sure if after collecting all these you were able to send them in for something?
       
      Anyhoos, here is the female frost giant, one of my all time favorite figures. I'm working still on the male frost giant who is a little more labor intensive, but I'll get him finished one of these days hopefully soon.
       

       
      and some of the face's close ups because I think I took the farther away photos from a higher angle which didn't quite capture the face.

       
      One thing I've found out especially towards the end of this project is that super glue and tight spaces really don't match and I managed to get the snow around and in a few places where it shouldn't be, including over the left hand's fingernails, which I took painstaking time and effort to make nice, only to get them covered by snow.
       
      The snow I used came from some modeling snow I had bought years ago. Up until now I'd been using baking soda for my snow effect, but I worried a bit that over the time it might yellow (time will tell I guess) and it would not look so nice in a few years. 
       
      In case anybody's interested, here’s the WIP I've been working with:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81156-grenadier-frost-giants/
      where you can also see ongoing process on the male as well.
       
      Anyhows, I hope you all enjoy taking a gander as much as I enjoyed painting her!

      Okey dokey, this one I finished this morning, an old knight from Ral Partha.  I think it's sculpted by Julie Guthrie, but not 100% sure.  My biggest problem was what to put on the shield, and my freehand is pretty rudimentary, sonot so perfectly sure how it came out.
       

       
      Anyhow, hope you guys enjoy him.

      Hi all,
      a figure I just finished yesterday (or so I thought).  This is the Ral Partha Town Constable, and I was kind of intrigued by him, as he isn't a very heroic or noble looking figure, he looks  a little bit lost, so I contacted Iron Wind and asked them if he was supposed to represent somebody and lo and behold, he is actually based on Tim Conway, and the figure at the time that was sold in his blister, a cowardly paladin, was based off of Don Knots. Who would have known?
      So I took these pictures yesterday quickly at lunch and posted them out where I usually do on Instagram, and as I looked at them, I noticed I had forgotten to paint something. So today's quiz is what did I forget to paint? To make it easier you can see it on the picture from behind.  Hopefully I don't get now 147 other things that I forgot to paint, but we'll see.

       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and happy Independence day to all you gringos!
