  1. This is an old Grenadier figure I've had hanging around on my shelf of shame for ever. I don't know if I stopped liking the sculpt as mush as I did when I first got it, or my paint scheme was lousy, or what, but he's been about 75% painted for about 12 years. I pulled him down and decided to finish him up yesterday. I touched up a few things about his old paint job, finished him off and based him. It's only done to table top levels, but at least he's (finally) done.

    Bull

    I have a lot of minotaurs. I share them with you here. You can share yours too if you like. This one is big, 50mm toe to brow, nearly 100mm total height. Believed to be from Games Workshop in the '90s. Base is hand-built from wood, sand, and acrylic gel. I meant for the color to resemble a black Angus bull, but it turned out more like a gorilla. WIP More angles:
  3. I'm painting an oldie but a goodie, the Demon from grenadier 5002. I havent found any finished paint jobs of this that impressed, if anyone has one I'd love to see it. I decided to use the cover of the box (screenshot included)as inspiration and try blending, washes, and highlights. I would NMM his sword but I can't figure out how to shade a surface with this many angles yet, so I went with the flame idea. His offhand should be holding a whip, but I decided it was another chance to work on blending and it looks better than a brown leather whip there. Process and paints on the blending Primed with citadel black Blending: Made a 4:4:1 wash of vallejo retarder medium/water/citadel khorne red (this looks to me like skim milk) Used this wash very lightly probably 8 - 10 times on the top of wings, stroking from the bottom to top (I thought this was probably the best blend work on this mini?) Repeated this process for the sword using citadel khorne red, troll slayer orange, flash glitz yellow, and vallejo white grey, reverse for the whip. I painted the green with citadel kharloc green, highlighted it with citadel warboss green. The fur I painted with khorne red and troll slayer blended, then dry brushed with troll slayer. The sword handle I dry brushed with Citadel chainmail I liberally washed the entire figure except the sword with citadel nuln oil. Questions that I ran into so far: How do I darken or lighten a red? If I add black it turns purple, If I add white it turns into pink. How do I darken an orange? Similar problems. Is washing with black the right idea? When I bought paints at the FLGS here in the bay area, it was suggested that I buy agrax earthshade, which is brown. I've also found some devlan mud because everyone online seems to rave about it. Also brown...What gives? How do you NMM a horizontal curved surface like this sword? Is this a technique that could be applied to a sword blended like this to add to the effect? Please your C&C is welcome.
  4. Hi all! I'm new to this forum, but not to fantasy miniature painting. I don't really know what to say right now so I'll let a couple pieces of my wok speak for themselves: 77002: Orc Archers (Bones) 02566: Fiona, Female Druid
  5. I picked this fellow out of the Box of Goodwill when it got back to me. It had already been worked on 'with some enamels a long, long time ago' by Thes Hunter. I liked the look of what was already going on, so I made a few tweaks and did a few touch ups to finish him off.
  6. Still struggling to find some time to get some painting done. Still, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. I found a pile of lead in one of my less frequented boxes under the cellar stairs recently. Several really nice, old school barbarian-types made by Grenadier back in the day. Here is the first I have painted up as a kind of test piece. I think I might have enough of these guys to make several units for Kings of War, especially if I put them on the 30mm bases. This guy is probably the most “Conan†miniature I know of. Even more so than the plastic barbarian in the original HeroQuest game. The face, the hair, the…everything, really. I believe it was sculpted by Mark Copplestone. Also, that must be a broadsword. Or a cricket bat. This mini is from sometime during the early 90s. I remember buying a few packs from the bargain bins at a certain shop in 1995 (anyway, it has to be because Grenadier shut down 1996 afaik.) Metal, 30mm base. At any rate, that is the first finished mini for July. I also have a bunch of bones skeletons, and of course, some zombies on the “in progress†shelf.
  7. Another old Grenadier figure painted up for the resolutionary challenge. He's supposed to be a dwarf, if I remember correctly. He's probably more of a gnome compared to a lot of today's figures, though. Either way, he's certainly a village elder. I decided to try the all over basing you can see on him; what does everyone think? Good idea, or not? Any C&C would be appreciated.
  8. Painted for the June resolutionary challenge, I submit to you 1 halfling archer made by Grenadier 30+ years ago. Please let me know what you think.
  9. As part of the Memorial Day weekend paint binge, I finished up these two fire elementals from long ago. Grenadier Fire Elemental from Monster Manuscript III (1503): Castle Creations Fire Elemental from the Elementals set (BP-15):
  10. Whenever I take pictures of my new paint jobs I try to get some snapshots of my older minis too. So here is Rafm 3721 Ice Dragon Yearling, painted in 1994. We didn't like the gaping holes in the wings, so we filled those with putty. You can see the not so great patch job in the photos. And here is Grenadier 9904 Skeletal Dragon sculpted by Julie Guthrie, painted around 1994. It had suffered some damage, so I recently glued it together and patched up the paint job.
  11. Hello gals and guys, it's been too long since I shared anything. I've become somewhat obsessed with the licensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons miniatures produced by Grenadier Models from 1980-1982. These are usually referred to as the "Gold Line." I never had a true appreciation for these sculpts as a kid, but with 35 years in the hobby. I've finally started to come around. I'm thinking of collecting the entire line now! I'm amassing quite a little collection. I will post up more pictures as models are finished as long as there is any interest. I'm sure that these models are older than some of the regular users, and I don't want to bore anyone. Thanks for looking. Comments and questions are always welcome!
  12. One weekend each year, about twelve friends and I hold our own private gaming convention, by renting a vacation-house out of town and spending the days gaming (board, card, role-playing). For this year's convention in February, I offered to run a little "painting workshop", since one of the guys was about to receive his box of Reaper's Bones 2 Kickstarter figures and he wanted some advice and practice. Another one of the guys brought some old lead figures by Grenadier, so I chose a wizard and spent a couple of hours painting him. The sculpt is crude by today's standards -- what is that cloak doing, anyway? -- but I like the character. He was the "Warlock" in a ten-figure "Wizards" boxed set (#2001). Check out the images at this website: http://dndlead.com/Grenadier/2000s.htm I started with a black basecoat and worked up. I gave him fiery eyes because I thought they would look more imposing (and easier to paint) than normal eyes. I also painted a magical glow on his raised right hand and glowing eyes in the skull on his staff. Here is the result! Enjoy, Derek
  13. One more from my Undead Regiment, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The Barbarian Zombie, Made by Grenadier.
  14. Two more members of the horde. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The one with the twohanded axe is from Grenadier. The one with axe and shield is probably from Harlequin, Though I'm not exactly sure. He's been around for years EDIT: I found him, He is actually from Mirliton. Newer cast.
  15. The Command Group. Carrying the Battle Banner. Mummy Captain, Ghoul Drummer and Zombie Banner Bearer.
  16. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  17. And the last one of the Undead Regiment. The Mummy Warrior. Another great vintage mini from Grenadier ( noticed I'm fond of those did you?).
  18. The Champion and some of his warriors ( I think I posted one of them already separately.)
  19. Two more. A Skeleton and a Zombie both wielding two handed weapons.
  20. And this is my regiment of Undead I'm working on. This is the Vampire Queen ( or maybe just her sister I haven't decided yet). She conquered a swamp, so she got an army of Undead and all kinds of swamp creatures. Right now she has to deal with an uprising of some of the swamp dwellers. Here she ( or sis) leads her regiment of mixed undead warriors to battle. All in her heraldry of reds and purples, with the snake symbol to show she owns the swamp.
  21. Lizard Men from Grenadier I tried speedpainting last night. I set a time limit of one hour with only a modest range of colors. I painted the first Lizard Man in about 20 minutes and the second one in only 10, because I learned so much from the first one. I think I could have finished the second one in about 6 minutes, but I had to let my dog out, and get my shark out of the tree. I only used black and white paint for my shadows and highlights. I mixed and blended them with my 3inch brush and only used my detail sponge for the eyes and teeth. I achieved a nice chromatic range through shere force of will, a technique I can't wait to try on my next figure.
  22. Undead Pizza Delivery from Grenadier. One more Pie Day piece!
  23. Starting to catch up with pictures, again. First up are a couple old Grenadier baddies I painted just to use up some paint/knock stuff out of the way. The Lizzard Man 1 is from the 2010 Horrors of the Marsh set in the Dragon Lords line, sculpted I've read by John Dennett. I think he's actually a pretty cool sculpt. Different, anyway. I got him from a lot on Ebay; actually rather wish I had the other two Lizzard Men in the set, too. But, anyway. I didn't do a lot with him, just kept it simple. The Yeti is from the 5002 Monsters set . . . and kind of a poor sculpt. The legs and feet, especially, were completely different sizes. He became a victim of my trying out some off-brand "matte" sealer; the shininess is obviously deplorable. Eh. As always, photo problems. Though I found for whatever reason I got better photos if I shot partly off the white paper background. No clue why, but yeah. So started doing that. Thanks for looking! If you have input, I'm totally open to it, though these were pretty basic phone-it-ins, even for me.
  24. And here is the Cyclops belonging to the same Swamp Based Undead Army. I will not post all minis at once. Since I got accidently banned I'll have to repost all I painted.. Oh well.
  25. Another regiment from the Horde From The North. This time with a Hero on a snow leopard. Again early work. IRL better shadows, bad camera work. Another repost of my work, hope I don't bore you all.
