The faces are awesome!

I'm in awe, these minis are small and yet so much detail in the face!

Wonderful!

Thanks Glitterwolf! Very kind, I really did enjoy doing their faces.  In itself, I'm putting together a little tutorial of sorts on eyes, nothing original, but using these and two other miniatures as examples, and it really is painful looking at your work super close up zoomed in as much as possible I have to say. I'm glad they look a little better a bit further back from the camera!

I wish I could highlight like this especially the blacks. And the expressions on their faces are just awesome! Looking forward to the afore-mentioned tutorial :)

The Dark Haired Beauty is an old favorite; her Blonde Associate is new to me.  In both cases they are LOVELY  creations that bring the old miniatures to a new level. Your deft hand with the brush, eye for colors, & fine basing are OUTSTANDINGVERY WELL DONE!

Thanks Malefactus!  I think Jee-Anna has had a bunch of different incarnations in a bunch of different Partha lines over time, but the blonde chick was only in one set, Bones of the Past, based off that Larry Elmore painting, and I'd honestly only recently found out about it. I really like the figures in this set though. There are three, the scantily clothed one with a flute, no weapon, this gal carrying a sack of something, no weapon, and the other one is an older wizardly gentleman with a staff, no weapon.  All three very cool fantasy figures, but none of the three is packing heat ready for battle.

      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!

      I started working on this several days ago.  Few Tricky spots (sword sheath wants to be flat against body, bends as you paint.
      The piece has some DEEP recesses, and it's going to be fun playing with the darks, shadows and lights.  I experimented on hair and beard
      to see what they will look like highlighted.  Some washes will bring those under control.  Think a snow capped plinth, or flowered one might
      be in order.  This piece needs a well thought out base !
      Here are a couple photo's to show where I am going with him.

      This is an old Ral Partha 3 stage character; high level Cleric. I've got both the low level, and mid level ones around here somewhere; I need to dig them out and paint them, too.
       
      My usual tabletop paint job, I hope you like it.

      This is an old Ral Partha female fighter; she is part of a 2 figure set with a male figure dressed and armed in the same fashion. (He is still on the workbench awaiting a few finishing touches)
       
      I hope you like her.
