Red Sonja, anyone?

 

I remember helping you out when you were getting started painting. Now, after about a 6 year break,  I am looking up to your figures and hoping I can get my skills (especially blending, which I am most definitely out of practice with) up to the level of your figs.

 

Great job!!!

Yeah, it's been quite a many years since we were hanging out on the previous Iron Wind forum!

Nicely done. I like the way you painted the little brass disks hanging from her belt.

Thanks, each one pretty much individually painted with loving care...

Is that putting it on too thick?

Not at all!

 

Unless you forgot to thin your paints.  (✿◠‿◠)

I've hopefully cured myself of that affliction! That's why I try to only use Reaper Paints nowadays (shameless plug for Reaper on its own site).

Very nice work on her!

Thank you much Chaoswolf, I like this chick, as she's nicely covered up, and has got some good sturdy legs on her. Looks like she's walks a lot and can probably squat a goodly amount of treasure when necessary.

      So an EDIT:  I changed up the photos and added one more different view because I took them from a slightly lower angle
       
      So it looks like Frost Giants are all the rage these days on the forums, so I'll add one more, eventually two.  I have been watching Patrick Keith's frost giant queen ever since she came out on the Bones Kickstarter and got her not too long ago, but didn't feel that I could actually start on her until I got some of my older frost giant pieces out of the way. The first two on the docket are John Dennett's classic Frost Giants from the Grenadier's Giant's Club, where each giant set came with the piece of a map and an obelisk. I'm not sure if after collecting all these you were able to send them in for something?
       
      Anyhoos, here is the female frost giant, one of my all time favorite figures. I'm working still on the male frost giant who is a little more labor intensive, but I'll get him finished one of these days hopefully soon.
       
       
       
      and some of the face's close ups because I think I took the farther away photos from a higher angle which didn't quite capture the face.
       


      One thing I've found out especially towards the end of this project is that super glue and tight spaces really don't match and I managed to get the snow around and in a few places where it shouldn't be, including over the left hand's fingernails, which I took painstaking time and effort to make nice, only to get them covered by snow.
       
      The snow I used came from some modeling snow I had bought years ago. Up until now I'd been using baking soda for my snow effect, but I worried a bit that over the time it might yellow (time will tell I guess) and it would not look so nice in a few years. 
       
      In case anybody's interested, here’s the WIP I've been working with:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81156-grenadier-frost-giants/
      where you can also see ongoing process on the male as well.
       
      Anyhows, I hope you all enjoy taking a gander as much as I enjoyed painting her!

      Okey dokey, this one I finished this morning, an old knight from Ral Partha.  I think it's sculpted by Julie Guthrie, but not 100% sure.  My biggest problem was what to put on the shield, and my freehand is pretty rudimentary, sonot so perfectly sure how it came out.
       

       
      Anyhow, hope you guys enjoy him.

      What a find!  I stumbled across this guy at a little hole in the wall second hand store.  Not bad for $5!  The box lid was missing, but I knew exactly what it was once I saw it.
      One of the dragons horns was broken, and I decided to leave it. 
       
      Some time ago I painted the Ral Partha version of this exact model.  (It’s posted in the forum, but I don’t know how to attach, and that kinda wizzy computer stuff). Anyway I told myself when I painted the Ral red, “I wish I could get another and paint it blue”. While I’m still partial to my red, this blue is pretty nice!
       
      As always C&C welcome and appreciated.  I hope you like it.

      Hi all,
      a figure I just finished yesterday (or so I thought).  This is the Ral Partha Town Constable, and I was kind of intrigued by him, as he isn't a very heroic or noble looking figure, he looks  a little bit lost, so I contacted Iron Wind and asked them if he was supposed to represent somebody and lo and behold, he is actually based on Tim Conway, and the figure at the time that was sold in his blister, a cowardly paladin, was based off of Don Knots. Who would have known?
      So I took these pictures yesterday quickly at lunch and posted them out where I usually do on Instagram, and as I looked at them, I noticed I had forgotten to paint something. So today's quiz is what did I forget to paint? To make it easier you can see it on the picture from behind.  Hopefully I don't get now 147 other things that I forgot to paint, but we'll see.

       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and happy Independence day to all you gringos!
