I rarely see this mini painted. I can't imagine why, it's a great sculpt. Anyway this is my version of Adowyn and Leryn. 

 

 

It's probably because Reaper has so many great sculpts. There's just no end to the selection. I have boxes of great Reaper figures still in their blisters and I probably only have 5% of the best ones they make.

 

These really are terrific sculpts and you did them justice with your beautiful work. The paint job on that wolf is downright awesome.

I picked up a copy of these last month.  They really are a great pair.

 

I love the nuanced earth tones on your painting of the wolf and on her garments, contrasted with her flaming red hair.

Definitely going to put this on the list for the future when I work through some of my backlog. Your rendition of the wolf is incredible.

This one is on my list! You painted them beautifully! I love the red hair, the furry boots, and the wolf's fur so much. Really well done!

I really like the subtle color transitions on arrow feathers, the bow, the white fabric and the wolf fur.

After having seen your version, people are just scared they can't do the justice to it that you did! That's why you don't see so many painted of these.

good paint on both of them but I think the wolf is one of the best I have seen in a long time.

They are really amazing sculpts and you made them come to life with your brilliant painting. I love her hair most, it pops out at you.

      While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game.
       
      This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested.  He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale:

       
      This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics.  I left the base white in order to paint it as snow.
       
      Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here.  First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly:


       
      Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail:


       
      Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again:


       
      And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws.  Oh, well, next time.).  I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier:


       
      He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.

      Ok so I'm 5 months from 40 and never painted a model in my life. But a group of friends and I have recently started a D&D 5e campaign on guys trip and really got into it. However it soon became apparent that stick pins and grid board suck. So i wanted to get some minis for our game.... I was looking at pre paints but those are few and far between or over priced so watched a few Youtube videos... got an itch and firgured why the hell not.... so since i live in bumfuq nowhere i ordered from amazon and ebay the types of figures i needed for our characters a dwarf cleric, elf ranger, and elf mage.... i started with the dwarf, figured it would be easier as my friend likes alliance in WoW and always plays dwarfs but soon learned metal paints are a pain in the rump to me. the elf i did last night and i think i see improvement over the dwarf attempt. though seeing pictures brought out the flaws i hope fix before clear coating either one. i was in such a newbie rush i primed before triming the extra mold lines on the elf but really i seem to be missing the trick even with a new knife blade the lines seem to splinter or split and not come off the model. maybe i need files? seems like there were alot of defects on these plastic minis... my mage is metal and much better and detailed. Please let me know what you think and where i may need to ficus my attention to improve. Oh and any and all tips on mold line/imperfection removal definately appreciated :-)

      Here's something I have been meaning to do for a while, since apparently I have had Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain pack of three giant wolves (Thunderbolt Mountain #8560) and RAFM's three dire wolves so long I can't even remember when I got them or how on earth I got an RAFM product I can't seem to find mention of on the internet.
       
      I also nabbed a set of Reaper's #02830 Wolf Pack, which contains three smaller wolves, still impressively sized next to humans.
       
      Here they are, cleaned and glued to bases (all nine wolves were more prone to tipping over sideways than I like).
       
      Reaper, on one-inch fender washers:

       
      Thunderbolt Mountain, on 1.25-inch fender washers:

       
      RAFM, on 1.25-inch fender washers:

       
      And here they are together for a size comparison, from left to right:  A Reaper wolf from the set, the Bones wolf from the Familiar Set #77176, Reaper's Willow Greenivy #03682, a Tom Meier giant wolf and an RAFM dire wolf.

       
      I would say the Reaper wolves are the most classically wolf-shaped.  They are a bit large for wolves (see the picture above for scale).  They are realistic and look well posed for various purposes.
       
      The two larger sets of wolves are almost the size of small ponies and look like they are begging for goblin riders.
       
      The Thunderbolt Mountain giant wolves have the elegant long, thin legs Tom Meier gives a lot of his creatures (I have also seen some astonishingly elegant wolfhounds and impossibly graceful insect-like horses from his hand).  Here they look maybe almost a little too long and thin, but they are certainly beautifully sculpted, as are the ranks of fur sliding along the animals' forms.  Their poses are realistic and expressive.
       
      The RAFM dire wolves, as large as the Thunderbolt Mountain ones, are a lot more cartoony.  Their faces are kind of pushed-in and piggy and their anatomy doesn't make as much sense.  They move oddly, although melodramatically.  They definitely have a mood of menace to them.
       
      Something was a little off with the casting of the Thunderbolt Mountain wolves.  Two of them had little pits along their spines, as though there were just not quite enough pewter in the mold or something.  I filled them in with epoxy and tried to smooth it out to match the surface.

       

       
      At the moment the figures are glued but not yet primed.  When I paint these, I am thinking of painting them mostly as realistic grey wolves, white arctic wolves, and perhaps some black wolves.

      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...

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.
