So I recently posted Rozmina, the Half-Orc Pirate from Derek Schubert. Here is the other half-orc I was working on at the same time, but as this one had a lot more going on with armor and such, he took quite a while longer.
Really cool mini sculpted by Bob Olley around 2003, large figure, good heft to him. the only frustrating part on this one was the chainmail and trying to get all the paint into all those little holes, and I can see some spots where it didn't work quite like I wanted it to. Also what color would you guys call his metals that aren't "steel" colored? Referring to the hilt, the belt buckle, and that heart looking thing protecting his manly parts?

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.
I'll also be editing the posts to update them as more things are identified. So eventually there will be a complete (ish) record of the entire collection.
First up, we have some dwarves...
EDIT: In the first pic the first four are from Alternative Armies - DH9-04 Dwarven Adventurer w/ Dagger, RM013 Auchan the Spiker, RM015 Colvin the Disturbed, and RM014 Luckburn the Iron Fist. The 5th one is Citadel FA-15, v2 and the last one is Asgard's DA7.v2 Dwarf King.
In the second pic, the first figure is from Grenadier's 2008 Thieves box set - the Dwarf Thief. The second is a Citadel C06 Northern Dwarves pirate. The third is from Metal Magic's C1008 Dwarves set and the last is Grenadier's 1129 Dwarf Flamethrower.
I'll be posting more as I come across things I can't find myself...
Whipped this guy up for a cleric character that I'm playing this weekend. The fig itself is awesome. The free hand on the cloak is all nonsense, just felt like adding a little extra with all of the empty space provided on the back. I might go back and repaint it once I flesh out the character more. Critiques and advice always welcome!
This is the dwarf cleric from my Dragons Don't Share 2 adventuring party. He turned out to be my favorite in the group! He is mostly painted with Reaper paints that I picked up at Wintercon and I love Peacock Green and my new favorite is Nightshade Purple! Seriously, 4 out of 5 of the adventurers has Nightshade purple as either a dominant color or mixed with another color or used as a shadow. What a versatile color!
Anyway, this guy was so much fun to paint. He is being so sneaky or cautious, I can't tell which!
Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain.
He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape.
The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it.
So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!)
I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.
