He is an elegant miniature, BEAUTIFULLY painted. Your brushwork & color choices are WONDERFUL...the green fire seems to fit an Elf Wizard perfectly. VERY WELL DONE!

Beautiful - very expressive face. I like the simplicity of the figure and how your rich colors and blending make them pop.

Thank you Glitterwolf! I've always believed that the eyes on a miniature will either make or break him.  If you can get some decent eyes, just about everything else after that is easy!

Thanks Malefactus, once I chose the shirt color, the autumn colors just followed suit.  One of these days I'll do some spell effect with natural flame, but I seem to have a thing for green fire.

Thanks Iridil!  Some of the nice thing with lots of the older figures is that they are relatively simple and straightforward.  Don't get me wrong, I like figures with "stuff" on them too, but simpler figures make for quicker painting, and there seems to be an elegance with the bare minimum of their character class, like this one, instead of having a thousand little bags, straps, cinches, et cetera covering them.

Do it! Do the OSL! I recently did a green magic OSL effect and would be happy to offer my thoughts if you like.

      So it's been a few weeks since I've finished a minis, been kind of busy, but finally got this guy done last night,  another Hackmaster figure that was picked up by Ral Partha, this time a mature-looking wizard with a nice wooden staff.  As always, it took forever to decide colors and with his inner clothing, the lilac, that was the easiest, but after that, took a while to figure out the green in his cloak and blue on the outside.
       

       
      He has a little potion at his belt, tried to do a liquid effect, when I look at the photo, not so sure how it turned out though.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Here’s my next big project, a 1984 Ral Partha dragon. This old fellow was in pieces when I received him, and painted. I’ve cleaned him up, removed the old epoxy glue, pinned him back together, and tonight realized it looks like he’s rising out of the water. He needs a bigger base, which I have (75x46mm oval). But I have never done any basing, and I’d like to create a base that extends the appearance of water. I have no idea how to do that, so any and all suggestions and illustrations are welcome!

      Finished another of the gifted old school minis, this one a Ral Partha (sez so on the base). I really like the sculpt on this one, so much detail...tiny shallow detail that would be easy to lose. So I did very little highlighting after the sepia ink wash.  
       
      Now what to do about the base. I’m going to attach it to a larger base, but I’d like to be able to take that off someday in the future A) for RP verification, and B) to build a better base if I ever get into that. I’m wondering if regular white glue would be a good choice?

      So at the same time I was working on my female hill giant, I was also working on two centaurs that the great Julie Guthrie had sculpted around 1982. I did them at the same time because I was looking for the same flesh tones because both I figured spend tons of time outside so should be very tan. 
       
      Anyhow, an advanced warning and a link because the female centaur is showing off her mammal parts, so here's a link to her front:

      and from the other side:
       

       
      As well as her male companion, who is chasing her around it seems like:
       

       
      Anyway a flash back into the past.  These centaurs weren't actually available too long either, being replaced by other figures under their same code.  I was told that if a set or figure didn't sell at least 200 pieces, they would get retired, so I imagine this might have been their fate back then which is a pity because they are really beautiful minis.
       
      And I've had both of these since the eighties, but finally got around to painting them, so hope you enjoy! It's never too late to paint a mini!
