  1. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-244.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-246A.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-248A.jpg So after painting a bunch of clerics and adventurers, and stuff with armor and loads of stuff, I just wanted to paint something relatively simple, so I grabbed these three chicks. I wanted slightly different skin tones, so the one lying down started as fair skin, the one standing was tanned highlights, and the chick with the black hair has a b
  2. Another from my childhood. He also came with a giant monkey head (at least that is what I remember it looking like) that could come through the cloud instead of the hand. That piece is long gone, but I think I would have used the hand anyway. Took me a bit longer than I wanted. About 30 years it took me to paint. Beat that :)
  3. These are old Ral Partha sculpts from Iron Wind Metals. They are assorted deckers and /or riggers from the Shadowrun game, i.e. people Of The Future who use computers in a virtual matrix and puppet combat drones in the physical world. It occurs to me that decker miniatures are not much called for, since all of their relevant gameplay is in online virtual personas which don't tend to look like people and in an environment where mapping out positions is impossible, so tabletop gameplay with minis is ... a little diffuse, at best. So I wonder how much demand there actually was for figures of th
  4. So it seems like it's taken forever, but I've finally got these all finished. Upon retrospect, I should have probably used less grass on the bases, but oh well, too late to cried over spilled grass.
  5. They say life is 'nasty, brutish, and short' and this is truer for nobody than the peasants. Maybe you were born into poverty, maybe you achieved it, or maybe it was thrust upon you; whatever your personal circumstances, you've had entirely quite enough of being poor, overlooked, and kicked around. It's time to seek your fortune in the big, bad world. There are many ways to make a ducat, but few of them are open to folk such as you in this day and age. You could be a merchant-venturer - if you had the money to buy goods, a caravan or ship, and a trade route that wasn't locked down by the e

  7. So finally finished my quartet of figures from an old Ral Partha set of adventurers. Finished up the basing this morning at around four, woke up out of the blue and got working on it. Finished the last touches up on the shield, which I'm okay with even though I seem to have an odd pattern with shields of just painting faces on them. I've done that with a drow figure, a gnoll, and some dwarf chick, who had a goblin with his head removed at the shoulders. Anyhow, happy to finally have this done. Next will be to work on the four clerics I've got sitting out there.
  8. So finally got three of the four figures from this old Ral Partha set finished, and I'm reasonably happy with the figures even if not so much with the photography. I've still got the Northern barbarian, AKA the most boring miniature in the world to finish, but hopefully I'll get to work on him some more this weekend. Anyhow, enjoy!
  9. So here is the third of my Ral Partha dwarves to complete my trilogy. It seems like they took forever to finish, but now at least they're done! I don't know why I've been having such issues with my front shots, but I don't like the lighting on the one showing his face, I might try to play around either with the photo or retake it. In the meantime, the back shot came out okay I think.. So I have all my partially done things that have been sitting around on my desk since my dragon complete, so now it's time to decide what to work on next. Oh, choices.....
  10. Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare.... He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/ I will likely put him on a display base later. With a dwarf snack for size:
  11. So I got this one done right under the wire, the last miniature of 2013 for me, bringing up my grand total to 18! It is a bit less than usual, but four of the figures were giants, and one was a dragon, so those probably took longer than normally. Anyway, here's an old school Ral Partha figure from Bob Olley, and I've got front and back view on this one. I'm not too very happy with the front view photo, but it's better than nothing I guess. The picture also doesn't seem to want to show my white highlights so well, like on the warhammer. But oh well, not going to worry about it too much any
  12. So working on a few dwarves right now and this first one is finished, two more to go. These are some old nineties Bob Olley dwarves from the Fantasy Armies series. They're quite a bit smaller than the Reaper Olley dwarves. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  13. So finally finished this one after having it sitting on my desk for probably three or four months. I started it up with the other two goblins I'd painted but got stuck in the color of his cape of all thing, which is kind of then an anticlimactic ending because it turned out to be a light brown. Four giants and four elves got painted between now and then, but it's finally done. Hopefully you enjoy! I've got tons more goblins to paint, and one of the days I'm going to do a World of Benetton of the Goblin universe, green, yellow, purple, orange, red, maybe a beautiful blue...
  14. So here is my latest little group of miniatures, some vintage Ral Partha Elven Personalities from the Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night line, sculpted by Tom Meier. These are pretty small figures, back when 25 mm meant that size. So they came out okay. What I actually like the best is the female's color of her dress, which is actually the Master Series Paint Bright Skin Shadow. I think it turned out kind of an enjoyable peach color. Biggest pain in the posterior was the buttons on the chick's "girdle/belt/thingamajig. I wanted to do them as jewels but they were so small, j
  15. So I've finally finished my last of my Ral Partha giant quartet. Just got the grass put on about thirty minutes ago and might need a slight non-giant break for a wee bit. With this one, figuring he was a cloud giant, I actually used rainy gray, then cloudy gray as his main colors and worked from there. It's a little monochromatic with whites, greys and black, but added just a tad bit of color with his shield belt buckle (it's supposed to be a cloud with a lightning bolt in case anybody's wondering). I also tried giving him some pink eyes as I could just kind of see some adventurers pick
  16. So as I continue painting old miniatures, here's the next one up, an old Ral Partha Hill Giant, which I think is the updated/remodeled one of the first one I'd done before http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49658-ral-partha-hill-giant/ . I usually just put up one photo of the front, but this one is kind of at an odd striding angle and has a few little details which seemed to have merited more than one angle. My favorite part of this figure ended up actually being his pet or snack in his European shoulder bag. Anyhow, hope you enjoy!
  17. So on my quest to continue painting old, classic Ral Partha miniatures, here's my latest! This is the second version of the Ral Partha hill giant that was made probably around 1978 or so. I didn't actually see the bottom of his base to check for a date. The previous one had more of a kettle helmet with horns and was holding the club in the other hand and it was more at rest instead of having the club over his his. I've got that one as well, but probably won't paint it in the near future because they are too similar. I did consider painting this one as a frost giant, with all the furs a
  18. So here's a Ral Partha frost giant miniature, nice old iconic figure from the end of the seventies. I really like the way he came out, even though with the lighting on the photo, a bit of the deeper colors are kind of lost. One thing I did with this figure that I wasn't expecting was in a lot of the shading ended up using the dark elf skin triad, which gave it even more depth (which once again in the picture isn't sadly too obvious). Being he was a frost giant, I wanted that dead white skin, which is a lot lighter than a previous version I'd done some years before: http://www.miniatures-wor
  19. These Reaper dwarves are old school, circa 1995, sculpted by Bob Olley. Enjoy! More photos in my gallery: http://www.mamageekminis.com/gallery.html?index=55&gal=11
