  1. Yeah, he’s really just a tunic, cape and belt. He has shoes and his wand and that’s it. The ones in the same blister pack are just about as simple.
  2. And hello again, my Reaper brethren and sistern, Another mini I finished just this afternoon, a Ral Partha Mage with Wand, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the late seventies or early eighties. He came from the Children of the Night range, and his blister pack was originally called Shadow Elves or something like that, but nowadays at Iron Wind Metals, he's just known as Mage with Wand. I was going to use my normal camera to take these pictures, but my battery died and I didn't have any left at home, so took this one again too with my iPhone. he came out okay, not sure if too much contrast? Unlike the Unicorn I just posted, this one is only two photos, a front and a back. The only thing I'm not sure if I'm that happy with is his wand. The little jewel on top I was thinking of reddish-orange, but it may have turned out too much like the chestnut brown of the holding part of the wand. Anyhoos, this was a relatively simple mini to paint, not a lot of dingley danglies, which makes for a pretty quick job. In this blister pack he's got a female and two other male shadow elves. I'm almost kind of inspired to paint the rest of them as well. I've already painted the female three times, but the other two males haven't done yet. We'll see how inspired I get and if I throw them in my queue. Being they were called Shadow Elves, I thought of a drow vibe and one of the versions of the chick I actually did paint as a drow. Alas, we'll see what I end up doing, so many miniatures and only 30-40 years to live.
  3. So hello all you Reaperphonics! So finished this one recently. I'd done the other Flying Pink Unicorn, and wanted a slightly different version of pink, so here's what I came up with. This one, like the other fairy ballerinas, was sculpted by Tom Meier inspired by a design from his daughter with his company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and now sold by Ral Partha Legacy. Lots of different pictures because it's mini with basically lots angles, not just front and back, hope not too many photos: They are the last of my ballerina fairies that I had from Ral Partha Legacy, going to have to now move on to something different I guess, maybe some Reaper Bones.....
  4. Beautiful job, far better to see this on a big screen than just on the Instagram feed!
  5. Thank you much Iridil! I wanted Morgan to have dark and more foreboding colors and the Lady in Waiting I just wanted some nice lively more “natural” colors, which oddly then ended up between autumn and summer maybe?
  6. Hello all you Reaperoloques, anxiously waiting for your Kickstarter boxes to arrive at your doors! I got my notice and hopefully I'll be seeing a big, beautiful box of plastic joy this Wednesday! But in the meantime, just plugging away painting... So I just finished these two Thunderbolt Mountain minis, and if you recall last time, I took y last photos with my new iPhone. I considered doing this again with these two minis, but took photos with my camera and then with the iPhone, and the iPhone photos were too brash or stark, so I'm using the camera photos instead. First Morgan le Fay: and then the Lady in Waiting: Both of these are available again for sale on Ral Partha Legacy's site, and actually they both come in the foot and mounted versions, but way back when, when I bought these, I didn't get the mounted versions, just their standing forms. Enjoyed doing both of them very much. The only odd thing again were they had those eyes with recesses for the irises, which I don't really like, but at least in this case worked out I think okay. I actually did a base walnut brown cover for the eyes and then when I went over them in white, the recesses remained unpainted and brown, so they turned out okay. I think for the future though, with more of these recessed eyeballs I'll actually paint the color in that section and then go over them again with white. Another thing to mention is these are true 25 mm figures, when that used to mean something, so these are very small. Anyhoos, hope you enjoy and these can momentarily distract you whilst you wait for your boxes to arrive! Happy Independence Day for those gringos that celebrate it, and Happy Sunday for those that don't!
  7. Yeah, thank you very much! I actually really wanted the town folks and your photos show that they look pretty good, I’m just hoping that everybody shows up with noses and good details!
  8. Lighting is great as well as a blonde Minotaur!
  9. Yeah, the color pattern on this guys is excellent!
  10. Those look really nice, want closeups of each one!
  11. That is one cool blade and he's also got himself some great party pants!
  12. This is a pretty fun figure! What makes him optionally creepy?
  13. Maybe we need to start calling it the shelf of opportunity instead of shame.
  14. So I wonder in theory if it’s better to tell or not tell what is missing? It would kind of set up expectations as to when you might start getting your items, but the world of Kickstarter seems to be so weirdly fickle, to give that information would make some people happy but other people not, especially when they know they may be part of a potential delay. I also wonder if they pushed it out to the 28th in the hopes that that last container may yet show up by then. Whatever they do or don’t do, I don’t envy you folks at Reaper with the need of satiating the ravenous hounds around you. On another note, am I the only one for whom the biggest thing I’m looking forward to is receiving the set of village folk (as to not say village people)? I ended up getting quite a lot of stuff relatively speaking for my poor hobby budget, but if I would have gotten nothing else, I think I would have gotten that little set of happy villagers.
  15. Very nice! One of my more favorite recent drow ladies! Nicely painted!
  16. Yeah, I’m hoping to use it with a miniature that has a smaller footprint. This one’s dress is very wide and expansive.
  17. @chaoswolf - here is the original base I was going to use. but she was just not level enough to add her to the base without having to do lots more work on the base. Ultimately I’m a lazy person so I just created a new and simple base.
  18. Thank you Chaoswolf! It was my reserve base, I had another one completely planned out and ready to go. This one is just some green stuff flattened out on a base and then I painted it out with different blues, surf aqua, and so forth. The other base was so much nicer, it was kind of a little piece of land overlooking a "lake", but when I put her on it, it was too uneven and wouldn't work. I'm going to keep it though and maybe I'll be able to use it with another figure.
  19. Thank you Glitterwolf! Yeah, she's a pretty small figure, 25 mm when 25 mm actually meant something. Thank you very much Poilu!
  20. Hello all you mortals hanging from this Reaper coil! So tonight is another Tom Meier miniature, from his Arthurian range, which is now once again available at Ral Partha Legacy, the Lady of the Lake. I'm really starting to get into these figures even with their small sizes and petite little heads. These are true 25 mm figures. Got a few more kind of schedule to work on in the near future as well: and a close up of her face, which, with my new iPhone I can apparently get very close up: and a back view: The only bummer about this one was I made her what I thought was going to be a nice little base, because she doesn't come on a base. You can either glue her to a small square metal base or create something. So I did a base which had "water" at the edge. After I got it done and it dried though, I tried to get her on it, and her cloak was so long and straight across, I couldn't get it to accommodate itself to the base in a flat way to make it look good. So I just threw some putty on another base, let it dry, and then just painted if simple blues. Her color scheme itself is some pretty monotone colors, lots of blues, with just the flowers in her hair to have some bursts of color. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
