  1. And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion, So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon. This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next. This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties. Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones. The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue. I wanted to origi
  2. Tere Reaperlased! So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line. This is apparently version two of the miniature. The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur Julie Guthrie Hill Giant Julie Guthrie Centaurs Anyhoos, here she is: and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against o
  3. Hello everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.
  4. Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos. This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings. I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end i
  5. Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World! So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres. The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords. I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters. So here she is: In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with t
  6. Morning everybody! So just finished this one up and got photos edited. I've had this figure for a while now, just finally getting time to paint it, he's Ral Partha, Wizard from Ral Partha's Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night series. One of the first miniatures of that series, and this might be the second version. There was another version with a shorter hanging cloak, and then one was done many years later, where you are able to easily see Tom Meier's progress over the years. This was sculpted in the seventies, in the infancy of Ral Partha. It's a fun miniature and thi
  7. Hi one and all under the joyous Reaper spell! So I'm not sure who the sculptor is on this one but she's one of a set of three figures with I think some loot bags. The other two guys are some brigands that I imagine turned her in to this female captive instead of just being the run of the mill female. She's kind of kneeling in a pile of random bones and stones. Fun little figure to paint, hope you guys enjoy:
  8. 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
  9. Hello sentient painting creatures! So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken: from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates. With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is
  10. Hello everybody! Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based. She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast. This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.
  11. So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties. Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint. was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on. Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans
  12. Hello again! so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979. Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below. With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing. So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress. The blu
  13. Hello gents and gentesses! So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues. This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979. I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times. Here is here face: and here is a link to see the rest of her
  14. Hi guys and gals, so I've been painting a goodly amount this last week or so, but it's been so cloudy I haven't been able to take proper photographs. Today was the first day the weather showed a bit of sun, so got some photographs going. Here is the first one I've been working on, the Drakonne by Bob Charrette. I'm about 99.9578% that this is based on the dragonne in the first hardback Monster Manual, with a slight consonant adjustment to avoid any copyright infringements. So looks lots of photos from lots of angles: Cross between a lion and
  15. And here is the second one I finished this morning, another Ral Partha figure sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the eighties. This one looks to be pretty clearly based on the Evil Queen of Disney fame. I didn't want to give her exactly the same colors, so threw in some orange into the mix. I think this is another Ral Partha Import resculpt. I added a close up photo, but realized afterwards there is a little fuzz or lint or something on the cloak, sorry about that. Adding it in anyway, sa I'm too lazy to retake the photos.
  16. Hello guys and gals! Here is one of the minis I just finished this morning, a Ral Partha Kindly Old Wizard, I think sculpted by Dennis Mize. Sadly I forgot about the "old" part in the Kingly Old Wizard, and made his beard much more brown than a really old wizard would have I'm thinking. This is one of the Ral Partha Imports that Dennis Mize sculpted based on some old Citadel miniatures. So anyhoos, here he is, feigning friendliness!
  17. Hello all and good evening! Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days. Fun figure, pretty straightforward. His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch! Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!
  18. Hello All, another miniature finished today, with my employer, we got a reduction in pay, but at least fairly are expected to work less hours as well, so I've got Wednesdays off, and have spent the day on and off painting amongst other things. Here is the last one I've finished an Aristocratic Lady, sculpted by Dennis Mize I believe as part of their Ral Partha Imports line that would have been taking the place of some other older original Citadel model of the same name. My original thought was pale skin and dark clothing but I ended up with just the opposite. I thi
  19. Hello again guys, so recently been a bit inspired to paint some old miniatures, ones that were nice and dark lead. Part of the reason for this is I want to get these painted before they actually disintegrate or get a lot of lead rot, so I'm going to be hopefully keep painting the few ones that I have that are really old, just to get a protective cover of paint on them, and because let's face it, they're basically just cool! So today I've got two dwarves from an old Citadel boxed set, whose name I don't remember but it was probably something like Court of the Dwarf King
  20. Hi guys, so I did a Ral Partha Houri a couple weeks back, where she had darker skin and beige/white garments. The original thought was make them semi transparent, which the first time out didn't work too well. I've got a few copies of this figures, so I gave it another go. Here's a link to the first one: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90984-ral-partha-houri-with-dagger-sculpted-by-dennis-mize/ and here is my second version, which was done as a blonde and tried to figure out a little bit better the transparent clothing. The front picture is linked here:
  21. So here is my latest foray into the past, a miniature that I've had for years and years and years and in a burst of inspiration finally got around to painting her. I've got a few other Citadel minis on my desk to as well that I hope to get to little by little. So she had a squished nose, so I had to rebuilt it with a bit of green stuff, but otherwise, she's the same mini that I've had lying around since the eighties: Hope you enjoy, more to come!
  22. So I think this Minotaur may have been originally sculpted by Julie Guthrie, but likewise it might have been Dennis Mize because it's part of those Ral Partha resculpts that were won't with some of the Citadel miniatures back then. Anyhoos, fun figure, and didn't take too long to paint. It's my first minotaur, I must admit! Anyhows, enjoy!
  23. Hello all! So here is another Ral Partha piece I just finished. I actually like this miniature a lot, even though the proportions are a little weird. The figure itself is a Houri, which I didn't know before I looked it up, refers to one of the virgins an adherent to Islam would receive after death. With her, I tried to do some kind of sheer or transparent fabric, but it really didn't work out like I wanted it to. One day I'll hunt down a tutorial on how that's supposed to work. I'm also not 100% satisfied with one of her eyes, but it's such a small field, short of doing it
  24. Good evening gents and gentettes, So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken. So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead. I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other
  25. And here is another figure I just finished, a classic Tom Meier Elf Princess. This was from the Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night Range, sculpted in the eighties. This was the second version of this figure, the first one far more simple. Anyhoos, lots of flowers and she's a pretty small figure, so hope you enjoy the mini! She's not currently available on the old Iron Wind web site, but she was fun to paint just the same!
