  1. Never knew she came as a single! Thanks!
  2. One of the Reaper artists, Lazlo (?) has her up on Hot-lead without the antlers as well. She definately came with them, as I still have the box. Will post pic when I get home from work....
  3. Yep, that's why my Reaper Kobolds are that color, all one tribe you know! 5 more Reaper kobolds on the way here from TX too! Unfortunately, THIS is most of what I still have left of my original old-school stuff, at least the stuff I have painted. There's probably another fifteen or twenty unpainted ones, but most of my old stuff got eaten by my house, tossed out or given away over the years... (I've picked up a lot more of the old stuff since then, but it's not the same as having bought it back then, y'know?) Yup, I have some of those figs to, going to have to start a 'This was such and such's character, and they....: type of thread with them maybe.... Anyone else think that might be fun? A "If figures could talk" type of post to tell fun stories about the player that used / abused them? Glad you enjoyed yourself! Don't forget to feed the tip goblin on the way out or he will bite your ankles....
  4. what is it the commercials say? oh yeah, JUST DO IT! but please post pics! I started going crazy with the critters back then figuring I had enough PC types, and if someone just HAD to have mini "X", they could spend the $.... Besides, where else were / are you going to find some of those things? And they look COOL! Uh-oh. Better hide your stuff, quick! You have a very cool old school collection, very nice. I've got some of those kobolds and the orcs in my collection as well as some of the others. I am one of those (un?)fortunate ones that once I started gaming, I never stopped. I also was the primary DM for almost 15 years, so It was fun to put the fig on the table (and watching the players eyes bug out! ) than just giving a description. Critters on the table help with the ambiance, shall we say... And Buglips, if there are any 'shavings' from that pair, I'll send them to you for care and feeding!
  5. Stay tuned, not done yet! I have the catalogs from 90-98 or so, if you need to know what something is, post a pic and I can check if you like....
  6. As I am taking all these pics, and looking at the paint jobs on some of these, I am itching to strip them and do them again! But I have to much other stuff to do 1st... I, I, I suffer from LEAD ADDICTION!!!!
  7. Yep, that's why my Reaper Kobolds are that color, all one tribe you know! 5 more Reaper kobolds on the way here from TX too!
  8. The snake heads on her are very very small.... I love that Remorhaz figure, but I don't remember when I painted it! I think it was after I got Married and had a safe place to keep it! I don't remember assembly being that hard, just had to figure out which pair of legs was 1st, 2nd etc, so they didn't hit each other!
  9. That's what paint strippers are for! Careful with the eye stalks though!
  10. Taer: Troglodytes: Trolls: Umber Hulk: I think That is all the PAINTED critters, Personalities maybe tomorrow. And then list of stuff unpainted / in blisters still. Enjoy, and I hope it brings back memories! PS all these pics done with my cel phone, can't find the stupid digital camera....
  11. Ogre: Otyugh: Owlbear: Perytons: Remorhaz: Rust Monster: Sahuagin: Salamander: Shambling Mound: T next
  12. Continuing again... Kirin: Kobolds: And one with 2 current Reaper Kobolds: Lamia: Lizard: Lizard Men: Manticore: Medusa: Mind Flayers (Illithids): Naga: Ogre Mage: Orcs: Orogs: More in a few....
  13. I was going to try to do this alphabetically, but forgot the larger creatures so.... Bulette: Chimera: Displacer Beasts: Dogs and Handler: Ettin: Ghouls and Ghast: Fomorion Giant: Mountain Giant: Stone Giant: Storm Giant: Hippogriff: Starting K next...
  14. Continuing: Goblins: Golems: Flesh and Clay: Stone and Iron: Hammer: Harpies: Hook Horror: Hobgoblins: Not even half way there yet! Stay Tuned!
  15. Hey all! Been posting a lot of old lead on the-good-the-bad-and-the-fugly thread, and I am up to my college years, and as I have about 95% of the AD&D Monsters, as well as most of the Forgotten Realms figures, I thought I would post them in thier own thread for ease of reference.... Beholder: Bonesnapper: Bugbears: And one with a current Reaper Bugbear... Cave Fisher: Couatl: (I painted this in metallics to match a concert T-Shirt) Fire and Water Elementals: Ettercaps: Gargoyles: A Jann: This figure was painted in the last 30 days or so.... Grell: Gnolls: To be continued.... Gorgon too!
  16. I lied again! As I have about 95% of the Ral Partha AD&D monsters, as well as the Forgotten Realms Figures, I am going to put them in a separate thread in case people want to use it as a reference... Did I read that ALL the molds for those wonderful minis were destroyed somewhere here? If so, that is really a shame....
  17. Installment #4 Chasme got his belly plates highlighted with Vallejo Ivory, as well as the face. I thought the contrast was too great, do they both got washed with Devlin Mud. A few places on the face then got a touch of the ivory. The proboscis got a Devlin Mud wash as well, then some high lighting with Dwarf Flesh. The eyes got a couple of coats of Hawk Turquoise, then each sculpted facet got a touch of Snot Green, followed by a smaller touch of Bilious Green. Still undecided about the dorsal 'armor'. A friend and my wife say leave it, I am tempted to do a repeat of the belly plates as spoken about earlier... The Hezrou got all the leather 'plates' high lighted with Snakebite Leather. The eyes and mouth were outlined with Vallejo Black Brown. The eyes then got a coat of Ivory, covered by Bad Moon Yellow. The Sash was painted with Golden Yellow, but I didn't like it, so it was re done with Liche Purple. Parts of the armor were done with Boltgun Metal, other metal parts were done with Shining Gold. The teeth got a layer of Rotting Flesh. Horns and nails got a coat of Snakebite Leather, followed by Bleached Bone. Going to wash with Devlin Mud to blend it together more. Skulls in back got some Bleached bone. Shoulder strap for armor Snakebite Leather. And finally, all the armor 'stitching' got a coat of Ivory in prep for....what color I don't know... Comments and opinions welcome! And my pity to those of you who paint lots of guys in the samurai style armor! What a tedious pain....
  18. Yes, I will be watching closely myself. A friend gave me this: for Christmas about 10 years ago, and I have always been afraid to do anything with it. Please Siri, take LOTS of pics on how you blend the 5 necks into the body... PRETTY PLEASE!!!!
  19. In 5 days I hear????
  20. Don't think they make it anymore at least I can't find it... YET
  21. Okay, I lied... Found some more high school stuff... Ral Partha Goblins: These guys got a lot of use during games!!!! As did these... RP Orcs... closer view of each type: If you look closely at the spearorc on the left, you can see he is anatomically correct! Some of the goblins in that line were like that too.... (Citadel made a troll like this that looked like it had 3 legs! Still laugh when I see those adds in old Dragons!) Also found 2 citadels, a spider and carrion crawler: Collage next, it is going to look like the Ral Partha AD&D catalog....
  22. Holy Chrome! Just how BIG is that thing? and who makes it so I can get one?!?!
  23. Okay Grenadier Giants: Fire Giant: His Hellhounds: This was when I first learned about washes, and really went to town on him... The Frost Giants: Male: Female: The Female Frost Giant languished in a partly done state for 25 years... I recently stripped all the old paint off and re painted her from the ground up in June of this year.... The Male Giants and Hell Hounds are making my fingers itch to strip and repaint, but there is so much other stuff to paint.... Next College Years...
