  1. Beautiful! Those OSL effects are very nicely done, I’m jealous!
  2. 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......
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. It does, thanks! I think on the actual miniature the detail is much softer.
  9. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen this one before! Beautifully done!
  10. She’s an interesting one, and I think she is one of their later releases, after Ral Partha became Iron Wind Metals, but I’m not sure, likewise maybe she’s a Ral Partha Import. I always stick my photos into the Lost Mini Wiki, and of times they place the miniature where it belongs and I get a bit surprised as to its origin.
  11. She is in the market for a new man, most recent romantic partner having met his demise in a mysterious accident. I think though she might still be pretty emotionally attached to him though, as she is still wearing him.
  12. Hello to all you Reaperthalians! Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure. I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe. my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red. I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different. I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki. So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake! Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!
  13. Yeah, I kind of agree after having seen it, I was going for a light greenish, but should have more contrast with a deeper green or even a blue. Of course now that I've finished I'm kind of lazy, so probably unlikely that I go back and actually fix it. I wonder if by boxed he meant a blister? If she was indeed sculpted by Dennis Mize, which stylistically makes sense, then sorry for the error! It's amazing in any case, whether it be Meier or Mize how much their skill levels increased in such a small amount of time!
  14. Yeah, Tom Meier did some great work back then, and even more incredible nowadays! Thanks Mad Jack, I wasn't aware they all originally came in one set!
  15. Hello all you Reapertoniks! Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately? Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!
