Wow, that is phenomenal work!  I love all the shading, especially on the metals. The level of detail is astounding!

Thanks Baldur, metals has always been my bane, but over the years I think I'm getting a basic grasp of them if I stick to a certain basic formula.

 

Does anybody have any good non metal metal inspirations for Bronze, using Reaper colors?

Care to share what you are doing for your metal work color wise? I feel like I've got a good grasp on gold nmm, but my silver is weak. Chrome sky/earth nmm is easy enough, but it really isn't what swords and armor should be made of.

 

Looks like you have a lot of blue in your recipe?

Sure, right now I start out with Ashen Blue as my base color, then I start using washes, next if I remember right is soft blue, then twilight blue, then dark elf skin, then after that dark shadow, then dark elf shadow, then black.  After that I go up from my ashen blue base, and apply in the highlights.  I use first, rainy grey, then misty grey, then ghost white, then finally white.

I'm not sure if sometimes it doesn't come out too blue, but I'm either too blue or too grey, so I never quite get what I'm looking for.

Very nice, clean paint job. You’ve really brought the figure to life!

Jim Johnson did all the heavy lifting. I just threw some paint on him.

Very well done, I like the colors you choose. The green and orange/brown on he's clothing and the nmm are beautiful.

Thanks a lot Metalchaos! 

My last couple of miniatures for Hackmaster have been "nature" related figures, like rangers, so I feel I've been using greens and browns and oranges a lot.  I've got my next batch I'm going to be working on soon, where I hope to get a little away from that color scheme.

      Good morning all,
       
      so here's a Halfling rogue sculpted by Jim Johnson that was put out by Kenzer and Co., and rereleased by Ral Partha recently.  A nice little Hackmaster figure, enjoy him quite a lot, because he's pretty straight forward, kind of iconic-looking Halfling thief. And I've been doing so many greens and such, it was a departure from my woodsy colors, so went for a cloak the color of the Dutch flag and some purple pants.  Enjoy!

       So, I was recently asked to curate a collection of old minis given to my FLGS on consignment... There are somewhere north of two hundred pieces altogether.
       
      Most of it is old Ral Partha, Grenadier, Heritage and Citadel. The first three companies I know well. Citadel not so much, but I've already identified some of them from the Lost Minis Wiki. And then there are some that I don't recognize and have no marking on them.
       
      So I'll be posting pics in this thread over the next couple of days to see if anybody knows what they are.
       
       
       First up, we have some dwarves...
       
       In the first pic I've already ID'd the 5th one as Citadel FA-15, v2. The first four and the last one I don't know. In the second pic, I only need the second one, the pirate dwarf.
       
       
       
       I'll be posting more as I come across things I can't find myself...

      Tom Meier Ral Partha 1981 Celestial Dragon 01-129.  This is one of those miniatures that you see and are in awe, and then when you get it home you can't bear to put paint over the beautiful sculpt.  And then you do, and it looks really bad so you strip it and try again, and again.  This miniature originally came with a gold paste you were supposed to rub on it to give it gold highlights.  That didn't work out too well, as I waited too long and it dried up.  Anyway, with the basing I was trying to give the impression that he is slowly flying along dipping his toes in the water.  It has given me ideas for some future projects.  It's been more than 30 years, but he is finally off of my shelf of shame. 
       
      37 projects left to go...

      This figure has been on my shelf of shame for a long time.  I think I got him around 1985.  He' s been started and then stripped at least once since then.  I consider him finished, and he won't be glued to a base.  The base reads "Ral Partha 1979". 
       
      38 projects left on my shelf of shame.
