Part of the reason I paint these I think.....And of course because they are just great figures!

Nice to see the figures well painted - keep em coming!

I’m going as quickly as I can! I’m just a slow painter with limited time to paint. Sometimes I have lots of time in the evenings but there are other times I don’t paint at all for a few days. I really do enjoy the hobby, it’s my version of yoga.

No pressure :) I'm suuuoooper slow myself and sometimes it takes me a month to finish a figure! I'm just really enjoying the series.

Wowzers!  Almost makes me want to take mine and put it in some Pine-Sol and see if I can start over from scratch with the paint job.  As far as I'm concerned, this is one of those classic minis that should never have gone out of production.  :)

Ral Partha made a lot of really amazing minis that inspired me to play an oddball character just so I could make use of it.  (E.g., the "King of the Bards" mini inspired me to play an Elvis impersonator superhero for a "Mystery Men" inspired low-level superhero campaign, and their "Reynard" mini became my rapier-wielding bard character for a fantasy campaign.)  All the same, your paint job here amazes me at how it really brings out that wonderfully fine Ral Partha detail.

Whenever I get something finished, this forum is always the first (or somewhere between the first and fifth) to know!  In all honesty, this is basically the most active and friendliest forum I've had the joy to come across!

So A), drop him in some Pine Sol and paint him up again, why not!  And B) he's actually still out there and available on the ralpartha.com web site.   Lots of these old miniatures are out there, just waiting for some re-appreciation!

      This is an old school mini from the German rpg Das Schwarze Auge, 15500b: Female Sorcerer. I found it on the Ral Partha Europe website. WIP (incomplete) here.
       
      I'm rather pleased with how the light refraction and reflection effects on her orb turned out.

      Good evening everybody,
       
      so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages.  I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties.
       
      Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!

      Hi guys,
      so I'm slowly working my way through some Shadowrun figures, and here is my latest one.  This is number three of a set of four Street Mages, one more left to go on the set.
       
      Tried to use pretty much just greys, blues and purples, didn't want too much contrast!
       
      So anyhoos,  not too much metal on this figure, which was kind of nice.  Next one hopefully in a few days to complete the set!
