  1. Hopefully warm and ruddy, but still with a bit of depth and highlight! It can definitely be stressful when you've been attacked by a squad of bugbears. maybe okay plus?
  2. Hello all you Reaperloogans! So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress. I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her. She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base. She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure. So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish. Hopefully she turned out okay!
  3. This is really neat to see such general, common items painted up so nicely!
  4. Thanks Glitterwolf! I think this round of fairies, my favorite is also the Red one and after that one the Orange one with blue hair.
  5. Good evening Reaperhoochagans! So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies: and here they are together: This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy! EDIT: adding a link to the original set of fairies: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94511-thunderbolt-mountainral-partha-legacy-ballerina-fairies-by-tom-meier/#comment-1995386
  6. Thanks Cantrell! I basically used the original colors of the figures with some exceptions. It basically made my life easier instead of having to decide new colors all over again!
  7. Thanks very much SotF! yeah, the Christmas Village minis are actually pretty cute after you scrape off or paint over their 30 second paint job. here is the original version of one of the minis. I forgot to take pictures of the other ones this time He has a little bit of primer on him, but you can see how he started out. Thank you Chaoswolf, you can see in my post to SotF how one of them was pre-new paint job!
  8. Beautiful! Those OSL effects are very nicely done, I’m jealous!
  9. Thanks very much Evil Halfling, I got them in an after Christmas sale for a few dollars. I wish I had some kind of idea who the sculptor might have been, but I'm sure he's lost in obscurity......
  10. Hello everybody from the South all the way up to the North Pole! So last year I had painted for my mom a Santa Claus, from a set of the plastic miniatures you find in hardware stores that go with the little sets of holiday houses. They are usually some pretty neat little figures but can use a little bit of love and attention, as they are speed painted in China without much detail. Well, with the original set of figures I had from last year, there were also three elves that I just didn't have time to work on, so I thought I'd do them this year and ended up finishing them yesterday. They are probably somewhere between two and three inches tall. and here they are individually: With this guy, I tried to actually make a list on his clipboard, but couldn't get too small, ended up with the first two letters of my mom and dad, Bernice and Glenn: and this next little guy, used that same idea and put their initials not he music box lid: and with this little guy, no real freehand, just an elf and a teddy bear: Fun figures and pretty large, without so much crazy detail. For the most part I actually used the original color schemes that were pre-painted on these elves, which in all reality made life a little more simple so I didn't have to work so much to choose colors. Anyways, hope you all enjoy! Merry Christmas to everybody and may Santa be kind to you all and bring you lots of Reaper miniatures and paints! Mark
  11. Adorable! I wish somewhere somebody would get an easily available non-you-must-print-it-out-yourself version of a baby Yoda. I wonder sometimes, with the official miniatures that they put out, they are really in no hurry to put out certain miniatures that would definitely be big sellers.
  12. Yeah, I’ve got such a nice place in my soul for these older miniatures, very simple, straightforward and classic. With the color scheme I stayed basically the same. The only thing I found out with this new iteration is I think she actually has a belt. I painted it yellow, green and red. Not easily visible but it’s where a belt should be, between her shirt and pants!
  13. I'm guessing especially also with the same color scheme too approximately. Next times, greens, pinks and other wild rainbow colors! Yeah, next time, whenever that may happen, she's going to either be blonde or a ginger, and the clothing colors are going to have to be bright and beautiful, like a thief who is so good she doesn't have to hide or blend in.
  14. Good evening Reapertons! So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986. She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook. Anyway, showing off new to old: and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties: and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006: and here they are all together: So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme. There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief. One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing. Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!
