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!

      So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line

       
      As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it.
       
      So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!

      So I continue painting Shadowrun figures, really enjoying them a lot! 

      Tonight's figure is another mage, a Corporate Mage with staff.  I see a few spots I'm not too fond of, but overall not too disappointed. I actually like how her black leather boots turned out!
       
      An odd little aspect of the figure is that curly, frizzy hair she has.  I've seen a number of Dennis Mize sculpts with that hair style. Not really sure why he did that. It was suggested to me that it's because he used often the same heads over again, but still makes me wonder why he did the frizz in the first place

       
      Working on her at the same time as I've been working on another gal with the same flesh tones, so hopefully I'll have another one ready soon!

      As you explore the ossuary, you hear wailings coming from a dark corner behind a sarcophagus. You see what seems to be a lost child, squatting and shivering. Chills run down your spine, when you first apprehension turns out to be dreadfully wrong. This foul creature has mottled decaying flesh, its eyes burn of hatred as it looks at you with a grim smile... Not a Reaper Miniatures but I thought some of you might like that Old school Citadel miniatures FTD-12 Dwarf Children (girl), distributed in North America by RAFM back in 1981. I painted it with acrylics as a child-sized Ghoul for the purpose of a DnD game need.

      Howdy,
       
       This turned out to be a rough sculpt...

      P.S. Sing it baby!
