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!

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.
So I went away on vacation a week ago, and I had almost finished this one before I left, but I ran out of time and didn't seal him or put him on a base. Got him done last night though. A great Jim Johnson figure sculpted for Hackmaster around 2003 and then last year Ral Partha bought the molds and started producing them again.
Anyhoos, fun figure. I've been painting up a bunch of these Hackmaster minis, using only the finest Reaper paints to bring them to life! As always having metal issues, my constant struggle, but they seem to be coming out pretty okay these days and I think the metal actually looks better in photo than in person.
