  1. I recently found some small pics of an old paintjob. Grenadier Wooly Rhino with Barbarian Riders. I think I did this somewhere in the 90's Anyway..here is to old times..
  2. R2D2 and C3PO surely need no introduction. These are from the long defunct Grenadier Miniatures Star Wars line. I went on a kick a while back and bought up most of the line (which really has fantastic variety). of them I have completed a handful as a fun interlude to more serious painting. I completed this pair, who are arguably the most iconic duo in science fiction media, after learning the actor who portrayed R2D2 had passed away.
  3. This Kickstarter is for production and printing of a new edition of a book that the author had originally self published over a decade ago: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1155053944/the-fantastic-worlds-of-grenadier/description I do have a few concerns about the way the Kickstarter is organized and laid out. I suspect the project creator has little or no experience with Kickstarter. No information about shipping costs and stating that there is no risk to backing their project, as well as a 60 day running time with an expected delivery date of only 3 months after the project ends all make me a bit wary. I'm also concerned about him having the rights to use artists work from Grenadiers products in his book. Having said that, the reviews I can find of his original book have generally been positive. It would seem interviews with a number of key people at Grenadier were missing, as well as several of their more well known sculptors. So yeah. Tempted and interested, but also a bit wary. I'll be watching it to see if any of my concerns are addressed.
  4. There's no school like old school: http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?3647-A-New-DEMOGORGON-Mini-From-The-Sculptor-of-the-Stranger-Things-Demogorgon#.V69eszUX96k
  5. Finally finished up the base for this guy, so here they are together! Its amazing how things can jump to the front of my painting line without any conscious thought on my part, and when I really want or need to finish other stuff that I had been working on.... A big THANKS! to TGP for the base Idea and the sketches to show me the way! WiP Here George
  6. Another Mini from the $5 box at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT that I picked up on the way home from the last NEMPA paint day at the Citadel in Groton, CT. Just a base coat of 4 drops Caspian Blue with 2 drops Inktensity Black, and 1 drop of Inktensity Blue added... (Paint was still wet when I took the pics, nice and Scale Color flat now...) Thanks for looking! George
  7. This was my project for the past couple of lunch periods. He's a recently acquired Barkskin warrior from Grenadier's Gamma World range (~1980). I have two packages of them (8 in 2 poses) from back in the day, and I usually use them as ogres of one sort or another. I've been keeping an eye out for a clean one to try in my current style, and eventually one showed up. I'm trying to get him finished, i.e. based and varnished, before Gencon, since he'll be mustered as a hill troll in my collection of wandering monsters for the Ringbearer game my brother and I will be hosting.
  8. So I picked this up from the $5 box at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT.... Just an exercise in GW metallics so far, starting with Tin Bitz, Brazen Brass, Dwarf Bronze, and Shining Gold, with MSP Leather White on the coals... Thanks for looking! George
  9. Ok, so technically this is from the Grenadier Fantasy Warriors wood elf line, but I think he works better as a barbarian, so here he is!
  10. First off, many thanks to those who helped me identify some of the stumpers here. These are a couple of adventuring parties' worth of Old School lead figures and a few baddies, kindly slung my way by Doc Bedlam and the generous folks behind the Random Boxes O' Goodwill. One remains unidentified, but most are known. They mostly cluster around two dates, roughly 1980 or 1991. I added a few women figures of roughly the same vintage to round the parties out. Here are four classics from the utterly classic Grenadier set 5001, "Dungeon Explorers": the Bard, Paladin, Cleric Turning, and Ranger. These are: a wizard FF2-A from Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths"; RAFM's 3903 Ranger (Female), Ral Partha 01-319; "Elf Thief 3 Stage" 319b (stage two); and a fighter from from the Grenadier set 1414 "Fighting Men Champions". The last group is: Grenadier A183, "Dwarf with Two-Handed Axe" from the Grenadier Set 1603, "Dwarves, Army of the Gold Mountain"; Ral Partha DF-122, "Female Thief with Dagger"; some glorious Ral Partha female fighter that I'm blanking on at the moment (watch this space), and an unknown ninja signed "Ridolfi" on the bottom of the base. These are some opponents: Goblin w/ Axe and Goblin w/ Sword from the Grenadier set AD&D 5002 "Monsters"; a Ral Partha D&D figure -- again, I have to double-check and he might not be intended to be a bad guy, but that's how I'm thinking of him; and the Metal Magic C1017c, "Witch with Cat".
  11. This is the Grenadier A183, "Dwarf with Two-Handed Axe" from the Grenadier Set 1603, "Dwarves, Army of the Gold Mountain" sculpted by Andrew Chernak in 1986. He is possibly the first male dwarf I have painted since 1986. The red bits on his axe and armor are meant to be reflections. Original WIP here. I finished it last weekend over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  12. This is figure "b" from the old circa. 1990 Grenadier set "Fighting Men Champions" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. It is from the moment when Citadel figures were making their way to the US, influencing American design with their big pointy feet and British cartoony feel. I didn't have this particular figure back in the day, but I had Citadel figures that were very like him. I suppose it's the pointy feet, but I thought of him as sort of Italian Renaissance. The original WIP is here. I did most of the painting during the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge last week.
  13. These are four of the classic old lead figures from the 1980 Grenadier "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" boxed set #5001, "Dungeon Explorers": the Ranger, the Bard, the Cleric "turning", and the Paladin. They are marvelously clunky and awkward. I never owned them back in the day, generally preferring Ral Partha and other more gracile brands than Grenadier's old standbys. It's been neat, though, to hear my old gaming friends recognize them. They are fairly simply sculpted, rather crude, with some bodged details. The right side of the bard's face was such a mess I painted him with an eyepatch, then added a little blue detail on his lute to match. The original WIP thread was here, but after a long hiatus I finished them during a speed paint on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  14. These are two old lead goblins from the ancient boxed Grenadier set #5002, "Monsters". (That's what, 1980?) They are so crudely molded I couldn't figure out what they were at first. They had a ton of flash when I got them. The sculpts are hugely chunky and have some blobby areas. They also have some cute details, including a shield and scabbard held on with rope. The paint job is a little impressionistic. Okay, really impressionistic. The rust on the helmets is deliberate, at least. As they are classics I painted them in classic colors. Old style D&D goblins were orange, or tangerine, if you will, still far and away the best color for goblins. This was the original WIP thread, but I finished them rapidly during the Memorial Day Paint Binge weekend.
  15. I've got a few of these Em4 Dwarfs (formerly from Grenadier's Fantasy Warriors boxed set) that I bought on a whim. They're ridiculously cheap, so if you're getting something from Em4 anyway then there's no reason not to check them out. Anyway, it's a 26-year-old one-piece plastic mini and it definitely shows in the quality of the cast; there's a hole in the mini between the chest plate and the beard (this is on every cast, not just this one) and there's a large lug on his back that I couldn't be bothered removing considering it was a 50 cent mini. If I were after a fix, I'd consider slinging a spare shield or a scabbard over his back. For the money though, not a bad sculpt and he painted up pretty nicely in the end. Definitely a good option for building a Dwarf army, and if I didn't already have a bunch of WFB Dwarfs I'd order another 100 or so of Em4's.
  16. I painted this mini about 25 years ago with Testors, and I was very very proud of it at the time. So proud I brought it to my first GenCon for the painting competition. When I got there, I realized the paintjob really wasn't that great compared to the top entries. I guess that scared me away from painting competitions until I started entering the very friendly competitions here on the Reaper Forums a couple of years ago. This then gave me enough courage to enter 3 figures at ReaperCon last year, where I got a silver, yay. Enough rambling, here is the Grenadier Manticore from long ago (SKU65) Edit: Added some tags
  17. This is an old Grenadier figure from way back in the dark ages before some of you were even born. I hadn't realized it before I started working on him, but the figure bears a striking resemblance to a very well known religious figure. I hadn't intended it, but I think that resemblance may have subconsciously influenced me in how I painted him. Anyhow, I hope you like him.
  18. Walked into an FLGS and am currently standing in front of this: I don't know what to do: they've got a bunch of the old ChaosWars dragons too. Prices seem to range between 35-45 Canadian. Is that what these are typically going for? Edit. O geese They've got the old Julie Guthrie dueling Dragons set by Chaoswars too.
  19. This is a group of wraiths made by Grenadier figures many, many years ago. I know that the wraith on the round dirt base is Grenadier; his base says so. The rest I'm not certain about, but they look the same, so I'm making an assumption. If I'm wrong, please let me know and I'll correct this post. There isn't much to say about these guys, there's not really a whole lot there. I tried to make them more interesting by putting more effort into the bases, especially the 'floating' guy; I think that worked out very nicely. Tabletop paint; please let me know what you think.
  20. I could have sworn I already asked about these, but darned if I can find where. I got given a handful of old school lead figures from a couple of generous sources. Some of them I figured out immediately what they were or lucked into info on the Lost Minis Wiki. But these ones have me stumped, despite in some cases clear markings. May I ask for some help from the collective wisdom? I believe most of these to date from no later than 1991 or so. They have been primed and washed with a thinned brown to bring out detail. 1. Some sort of pretty early orc-goblins, no base markings (subsequently glued to pennies). I found pictures of them in a group image on ebay with information so inaccurate it was laughable. Identified by K2h2m3 as from the Grenadier set AD&D 5002 "Monsters", Goblin w/ Axe and Goblin w/ Sword, 1980-1982 2. (Central figure only) A wizard with upraised staff, manufacturer unknown, base markings unclear. He's the figure in the middle (the other four are identifiable as from the old Grenadier boxed set 5001, "Dungeon Explorers"). Identified by Rob Dean as from Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths", FF2-A, sculptor unknown, circa. 1980?, no later than 1981-1982 3. A witch, base markings "MP90" or "HP90" and something unclear Identified by Xherman1964 as Metal Magic C1017c, "Witch with Cat", sculpted by Michael Immig, circa 1992. 4. Possibly an elf? Identified by knarthex as Ral Partha 01-319, "Elf Thief 3 Stage" 319b (stage two), sculpted by Tom Meier, circa. 1986. 5. An unusually tall for the time ninja, apparently signed "Ridolfi" on the bottom and with the possible date "90" Identified by Bob Ridolfi as one of his earliest efforts with an extremely limited distribution, see post 17 below. 6. A fighter, possibly a paladin with a mace, very clearly marked "Grenadier 1991 A644" -- and I still can't find any information or visual confirmation on him! Identified by alchemist as from the Grenadier set 1414 "Fighting Men Champions", sculpted by Mark Copplestone, 1991.
  21. So the Pathfinder game was played last Saturday, and a friend from collage that still plays with us brought up a box of old lead that he was going to put on evil bay, and asked me if I wanted any of them..... (Anyone care to guess my answer?) So I refrained from taking the whole box and grabbed the following: Ral Partha: These critters are called 'Hexers' or something like that I believe R.Charrette, 1989 on the base These guys reminded me of Anhurians 1992 on base These guys had odd helmets that I kinda liked... R Charrette and 1989 on base again This guy just struck my fancy for some reason: Ral Partha 84 on the base... As soon as I saw this guy, I thought of the Dark Enabler, The Like Bomber, & CW.... R Charrette and 1989 on base again (So when I paint this guy, which one do I skin for him???? ) Grenadier: The Dwarf Bear rider was just..... A422 1989 on base This Orc? Ogre? was kinda neat, so.... M459 1991 on base And I just like this guy! His boots are claws, His visor reminds me of a Traveller character I had back in High School that a different friend drew a pic of for me, and his shield is neat! FP41 1987 on base They are all going to go for a swim in paint stripper, as soon as I can find some gel type.... Aint friends wonderful? George
  22. More old school lead today; this one is an old Dwarven Archer by Grenadier, painted to table top as usual. He's a little small, so I may use him as a gnome. I hope you like him.
  23. As part of Inarah's old of the year paint binge, I finished off this guy. He's a dwarf warrior made by Grenadier for their old Fantasy Warriors mass combat game. It was intended to be competition for GW's WHFB, but it never quite took off. It's still available (along with a lot of other cool old Grenadier sculpts) from Mirliton miniatures. Table top paint. Let me know what you think.
  24. These 2 had not been photographed together before even if they are from the same set. The two were not painted at the same time, and I don't think I realized they even were a set at the time, since the colors and bases are different. I remember being very happy with the horse and the blue horse shroud thing when I painted it 20+ years ago. Grenadier 709 - Mounted Knight with Yeoman
  25. This figure was sculpted for Grenadier in 1991 by Julie Guthrie. If I remember correctly, he's a thief, but I think he'd also work well as a pirate, although he's based in a rather non-nautical fashion. I tried something different when I did his skin, how do you think it looks? He's done to table top level; C&C is welcome.
