  1. Good morning all you folk of the Reaper persuasion, who maybe should get their own pronoun, re. So I just finished this evil wizard up, sculpted way back in the eighties by Dennis Mize, I think to replace an earlier Citadel model. Tried to keep him dark, and originally thought about starting all black and just use different highlight coloring for the cape and for the cloak, but then kind of wussed out and thought nothing cries evil like a man with a pink cloak (a la Roose Bolton) so here he is for your viewing pleasure: Enjoy all of his fashion glory!
  2. Hello All, so hopefully after my anthropomorphic cat, this one won't be a disappointment! So probably already about two years ago, I sold my original version of this mini for an amount that I just could not refuse (and was in fact instrumental in giving me funds for Bones VI), and figured I'd just paint her again. It took forever to get around to it, but now I've gotten my second rendition of her, and she is underneath: I am reasonably satisfied with her but the issue I have is with her eyes. Even though live it doesn't seem she has them, she has in the photos at least large dark lines under them. Here is the original version of this chick that I painted maybe around 2018: where I like her eyes a whole lot better in the second blue version, or actually the first original version. As I go back to an unpainted version of this gal, I'm a bit confused because the actual eyes are actually rather large and circular, more akin to the pink dressed lass, so not what sure what has happened. All in all though, being I do have another unpainted version of her, I almost feel obligated to want to try again until I'm 100% happy. Does anybody else ever have this issue? I'm not sure when I'll get around to version number three, but I'm guessing it might frustrate me to have it done in 2023 sometimes amongst all my little other projects.
  3. Hello all you Reapernikud! So latest painted figure, and I'm not 100% sure but I think this was sculpted by Dennis Mize , a Crouching Ranger with Sword: Greens, browns and blacks, rangery colors. Enjoy!
  4. Hello my little Rearperlificos! so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones. I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur. I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection. Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time. I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off. Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure: the female: The male: and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo: I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. Good afternoon my Reapergogglians! So just finished up Ann Penchyk, a Shadowrun character apparently (don't know too much about Shadowrun still, after months and months of painting different Shadowrun figures. I really dig this little blister pack, where we have Ann dressed in her corporate 9-5 job, and then the another version of her, the "adventurer" version of her. So with that in mind, I at least tried to keep her skin tones, hair color, et cetera the same so it looks like she just might be the same gal in different attire. 9-5 Ann: and how she spends her time Shadowrunning on the weekend: and here they are together, side by side: This is the first Shadowrun orc I've painted and from what I could tell with all the other artwork I've found on line, Shadowrun orcs can be any normal person's skin color, so even though I thought it was a bit strange, I painted her starting out with Tanned Highlights and worked up and down from there instead of doing some type of green base. So ta-ta for now, hope you enjoy!
  9. Good evening all you Reaper Spirits! So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure. Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female. With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays. Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day! Enjoy!
  10. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint. Here’s the list of colors I used;
  11. Hello Reaperdeepers! So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress: not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes. This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole. As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now. Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to paint, hope you enjoy her!
  12. Hello again my Reaperdoodles! here is the second one I finished just yesterday, a female giant from the Arcana Unearthed line that Iron Wind Metals puts out, sculpted by John Winter. I've always liked this figure since the first time I saw her, probably a decade ago, but finally got around to painting her. Hardest part as usual was to try to choose the colors, but hopefully the palette is pleasant enough. I don't know anything about the Arcana Unearthed game or system, but she's listed as a giant, which looking back into the early nineties, she was probably a pretty large figure, but when I compare to her modern Reaper figures, she is really pretty much the same size. I have this photo as a comparison. The joy of scale creep!
  13. Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.
  14. Hello everyreaperbody! So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize. Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out and here they are together: Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one. Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby. I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago. Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much. So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep. I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over. So anyways, hope you enjoy!
  15. The Black Widows independent company, part of the mercenary Wolf's Dragoons. In full cheesy-80s-action-movie fashion, they're a Dirty Dozen-style group of criminals and misfits molded by Capt. Natasha Kerensky into one of the most feared fighting forces in known space. Command Lance Fire Lance Recon Lance And because these are all canon characters, the pilots' names are marked.
  16. Today's weird mini IWM-DF-538 Sea Serpent. Cool yet weird mini. It could take down a row boat, or a small sail boat, but it is not of a scale to crush a full sized pirate ship. The whole 4 piece thing is cool, but it is easier to lose a piece that way. This mini was super fun to paint. It was swimming outside my window this morning... Does anyone know who sculpted It?
  17. Some stuff from my Clan Jade Falcon forces I finished a while back, and a Turkina finished more recently.
  18. Painted in the colors of Clan Goliath Scorpion, Delta Galaxy.
  19. The first few in what will eventually be a reinforced company from the Capellan Confederation's Warrior House Imarra: A Raven and a Yu Huang.
  20. I don't play them that often these days, but the Northwind Highlanders mercenary regiments will always build a dear place in my heart, as their sourcebook was one of the very first Battletech products I ever bought. I'm especially happy with how the Locust turned out.
  21. From the new Game of Armored Combat box, an Awesome painted in the colors of the Sixth Legion of the Marian Hegemony. Space Romans in giant robots!
  22. This is an old Ral Partha stag that I needed the horns from. Now it is a very surprised doe. I picked it up from Iron Wind's bulk metal bin at a convention, but I can't seem to find it online.
  23. Here's a quick paint up of an old Ral Partha (now by Iron Wind Metals) Shadowrun figure. Nothing special, just something quick to keep my hands busy. But I like her. Scale wise, she's a bit small these days for an Orc character, but since she was on the tall side when produced, she fits in pretty well with the Chronoscope minis I typically use for SR games. I think the top part of her outfit is supposed to be chainmail. But I like to think she's a bit of a hipster orc and just crocheted herself a top to go with her hair.
