The little guy looks cute. I like the bark on the base. I have some of these coming to me as soon as Thunderbolt Mountain sends em out.

The Fur Ball from HELL! turned out to be a BEAUTIFULLY painted little charmer.

Your work with the brush is greatly assisted by a WONDERFUL base, truly a LOVELY creation in its own right. VERY WELL DONE!

You will have a blast painting him up !

This is a SMALL mini however, so be prepared for that.

Good Luck !

If Jim Henson made a furry muppet dinosaur head ...

 

It looks adorable and charming and likely to take your fingers off if you tried to pet it. I especially like the cascades of violet flowers on the base.

Thank You Pingo;

It was just a lot of fun to paint, and Basing it was such a challenge.

Love those flowers from scenic express !  I need to get a pile more of them.

For some reason, it reminds me of a sentient chocolate truffle. I like it!

Sentient Chocolate Truffle !  ROFL..

That's a great one.  I have images of sitting at a table with Rene Descarte, Voltaire,

and the Little Woolly with him chairing a discussion of "Why it would be non-advisable for any of us

to attempt to eat him !!!

Thanks for the great laugh !!

      So switching a bit of genres, decided to work on some cyberpunk stuff, so started painting some Ral Partha Shadowrun figures.  These two are two Street Mages, both sculpted by Tom Meier, I'm guessing back in the eighties or early nineties (forgot to check the bottom for a date stamp). With them both, I still see some mold lines when I look, really need to make sure I get rid of those a bit better.
       
      Kind of hard to decide on colors for these. When you look at the art that's running around on line for Shadow run, it's a combination of different shades of black or very bright colors, especially in hair, so hopefully the colors I chose made some sense.  Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!

      Good evening folks,
       
      So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so.  I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.

      I have actually been painting, sadly I'm no longer as fast as I used to be.  I just wanted to post a photo of two Tom Meirer Elf's
      that I am currently painting.  I have gotten a bit ambitious as to the guards, and also the basing project.  So when it is done, I will
      post in the show off Forum.  I have gotten rather fond of the plastic vise grippers to hold the miniatures.

      So from my painting fervor, this is the third miniature I finished this last week, and I think my favorite.  I actually took pictures of him yesterday to post, but when I looked at the pictures close up, I noticed he actually had a blade of grass on his head, right where his hair part was, so ended up having to re-photograph him. 
       
      This figure came from the Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals Chaos Wars Kickstarter and Tom Meier sculpted up two new elves for them, in the 25 mm scale that the other elves were done in (other figures that he had sculpted  30-40 years ago).  There was a comparable figure he had done that was also and elf with an axe and shield that some day I'd like to paint as well, but here is his modern version of it. 

       
      I really wanted to give his hair and skin a pale, ethereal look and wanted the colors too to not be to harsh with the clothing and weapons.  I was surprised that he ended up actually being a pretty easy figure to paint, despite the small size.  The only difficult part of this mini in all honesty was his eyes, which Tom Meier kind of made "proportionate", so they weren't exaggeratedly large like lots of figures are sculpted with.  This has both good and bad parts. The good of course is you have a beautifully proportionate figure, the bad of course if you have to see what you can do with this little pindrops of eyes.  I think I actually managed to do okay with them.  I considered eye brows but then in the end decided against it, figuring in theory they would be such a light color they would hardly show anyway. 
       
      And to give you a size of this miniature, here's a comparison shot against a US quarter:
       

       
      After painting this figure, it really puts me in the frame of mind that I'd like to paint more of Meier's contemporary stuff, like what he's done for Dark Sword for example.
