  1. Nothing too special here; just an old Grenadier rune stone/trail marker thing. I haven't based it yet as I'm not sure if i'm going to use it in a diorama or just as random scenery. i think it took about 2 hours altogether to paint.
  2. This is on old Grenadier mage from one of their boxed sets released 40 or so years ago. Table top, like most of my stuff. Gems/spell components in his hand
  3. This is an old Grenadier wood elf from their 'Fantasy Warriors' line. I rescued him from the melt table at Reapercon and finished him up last night. I tried to do some freehand tattooing on his arms; I'm not too sure what I think of how they came out. More practice needed, I think.
  4. Hello again everybody, got this one finished last night. Not quite so sure about the quality of of the photos, but when they are shrunk down to 500 x 500 they look a lot better. Also with him holding up that sword it takes up so much space in the photo itself that everything looks a bit smaller than I'd want it to. Oh well. ​In any case, this is the King of the Realm, a figure from Dennis Mize that originally came in a package of kings from different genres. There was this guy, http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/b/b2/03-005_D.JPG then another one that I p
  5. So here's the figure I was talking about in another post, where I was lamenting about sealants and how they sometimes rubbed off details of my photos. I tried a new method though, and I think I've hopefully solved the problem. Here is the Ral Partha Female Barbarian with Short Sword, which was sculpted by the great Jim Johnson, and which was inspired from a Larry Elmore painting called Warband. Back then in the day, Partha did an entire box of figures dedicated to the painting. This is one of them, even though I didn't follow the painting's color scheme. ​I took a few pictures of her
  6. I finished my first figure for the year a couple days ago. It's also my first painted dragon. Ever. I'm pretty psyched about getting the eyes to look good on my first try.
  7. So another old Partha piece that I just finished. I don't think the photos are the greatest and there is such lack of mercy when you see your piece so close up but here we go: I think she came out reasonably well. She had a huge shield that I just didn't want to leave blank, so I did a bit of freehand, but I'm wondering sometimes my artistic talents when I do these, as this little Pegasus reminds me more of a little rag doll horsey than a noble beast of flight. It's just really hard to get too much detail in such a small area which is about the size of a dime. This one was
  8. So this I'm assuming is going to be my last finished miniature of 2016. I got the base finished last night and photos taken at lunch today. I'm pretty happy with my grand total for the year, I'm thinking it's probably a personal record. I ended up with 52, averaging one per week, 43 from Ral Partha, eight from Stonehaven, and one from Dark Sword Miniatures. This one is an old Partha piece, I'm guessing latter nineties, which was kind of of based I'm guessing on Xena. Very similar armor and the long hair, with a slightly modified and thicker chakram that was Xena's trademark weapon.
  9. So just finished this one up last night, wizard with staff from an old Ral Partha line. I actually like this figure quite a lot because he's an older guy, but has decided not to become a old, long-haired, long-bearded wizard in a big, billowing cloak, rather he's tried to keep himself a little more up with the times with some sensible clothing and a hair cut.
  10. So after working lots on Ral Partha Chaos Wars drwarves, here is something a little bit different. Still very old school, from an old Partha line, Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age, a female thief, really simple sculpt from Dennis Mize, a front and back angle, nice figure, sculpted it looks like in 1979. Enjoy!
  11. This is another honorary Old School mini, an Ironwind Metals casting of the old (dated 1982) Ral Partha "Female Thief With Dagger II", catalogue #DF-122 in both cases. She was one of the earliest minis I actually owned, so getting another copy of her meant something special to me. The original WIP thread is here, but I did most of the work on her during the Memorial Day Paint Binge last weekend.
  12. So for any of those international doojobbies that might now, I'm going in a few weeks to Helsinki, and wondering if anybody might know if there are any good game stores there, which out there in the hinterland might have old school minis, or basically anything else other than Warhammer? Kiitoksia etukäteen!
  13. So here are my last in a series of umpteen dwarves. This last set I think I got a little lazy with as I gave them more or less the same colors of capes, but it's kind of a blue and red color scheme I've been trying to hold on to any way. Anyway, hope you enjoy them!
  14. Since You guys like old school stuff, here are some more Citadel figures that I painted with Polly S paints between 1988 and 1992... Rychter Wolfhelm was my first Cleric, and really the first non multi classed cleric in any campaign I participated in in over 10 years of playing AD&D! He was a 2nd Ed Specialty Priest of Tempus, and if you were hurt in the battle, you had better survive till the end, because Rychter did not cast spells in combat, he was a Priest of Tempus, and he led the charge! In one game, one of the other characters called Rychter a coward.... That did not sit to w
  15. So as I chug right along, painting these Partha dwarves, my latest two, Elite Armored Dwarf Guards from Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night that were also incorporated into the Chaos Wars Kickstarter campaign for Ral Partha. So with this set of two, I actually have a goodly number (I think three) of blue dwarven shields with big empty spaces on them waiting for some art, but not sure when or if I'd ever get around to providing something on them. If I was just working on an individual figures, it probably would be a little easier, but if I put something on them, I might eve
  16. I painted this up with my Old School Grenadier minis because I've never felt quite right with all-male parties. She's honorary Old School, although a modern Ironwind metals recasting. In old Ral Partha she was #03-107, but in Ironwind Metals' new catalogue she is #61-093. She is very small. Here she is compared to a Reaper figure (02881: Dara, Psionic Warrior); both Ciera and Dara were sculpted by Sandra Garrity: Anyhow, she is a lovely sculpt and I enjoyed bringing her to life. The original WIP was here, then I finished her on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  17. This is FF-2A from the circa. 1980 Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths", sculptor unknown. He's lead and crudely modeled. I mounted him on a one-inch fender washer for stability. I may have overdone the highlights on his staff orb a bit; I think it looks a little closer to a mushroom than a ruby. Original WIP here. I finished it last weekend over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  18. So, I've been inspired by Pingo's recent old school miniatures painting, particularly this thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69101-old-school-wizard-from-heritage-models-about-1980/ I decided to dig out an old Garrison figure from my "to do" pile for a rapid treatment today. Two more ended up on the stick, but this guy was calling out to be finished first. I finished, as far as I could, scaling off the old paint this morning. Here's what I ended up with, minus the final basing. If I had double-checked his ID before painting he might have ended
  19. 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 Ra
  20. This is another of the Old School cluster I started in March and finished on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge. She's the RAFM Ranger (Female) 3903, a classic figure from the early '90s which is still being sold. For the early '90s she's pretty big. She fits in well with modern 28mm figures and towers over the little Partha ladies I painted her with. She's a little cartoony but she has some nice details, including a bird of prey on her right wrist and a feather in her hair I painted up like a bluejay's. I tried to paint reflections on her sword and armor.
  21. 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.
  22. This is another piece of Old School lead from the Box O' Goodwill, Ral Partha's"Elf Thief", 01-319B, circa. 1986. It was sculpted by Tom Meier. For a time Ral Partha had sets of adventurers at three stages in their career: Starting out, mid-level, and high-level. This is the middle figure of the male elf thief set (01-319). Original WIP here. The elf was finished in a speedpaint over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  23. 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.
  24. This figure came with a few old circa. 1990 lead minis from the Random Box O' Goodwill project. It was signed "Ridolfi" and "90" on the bottom, but remained a mystery until I ran into Mr. Ridolfi himself: My martial arts friends tell me that fighting with two sais is silly, like fighting with two shields. Oh well. Original WIP here. I finished him on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  25. So here are my latest three figures, from the old 3-Stage Player Character line and ones that were also included in the dwarven forces for Ral Partha's latest Kickstarter. I thought of doing them as the same character progressively in his career, but didn't quite end up that way, even though I thought I gave the most experienced of the three in the plate mail a bushy white beard! Anyhoos, enjoy! Long live old school!
