  1. http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/46419-tsr-drow-by-ral-partha/ So from this WIP above, here are the final results of the four drow elves from Ral Partha that I've been painting since November 11. I finished them actually about two nights ago, but just finally got around to working on the last pictures. I'm pretty well satisfied how they turned out, even though I can also see a few issues as well. I think a little too much matte finish got put on the one with the shield because I can see a lot of glare with the photograph, but oh well. I actually enjoyed doing this and liked doing a complete set of figures as opposed to random individual figures. I'm pretty sure that I somehow saved some time by doing four similar figures. If it took about six weeks to do four figures, and normally if I'm working at a regular pace of a figure every two weeks, I saved two weeks of my life that I would have otherwise spent in painting radically different figures. So I just gained two more free weeks of painting time (in theory). I also think that by working on the WIP and documenting progress, I tried to actually make progress and post it, not letting the figures just languish as sometimes hapens. So anyhow, here they finally are. Enjoy!
  2. So I've been collecting for a while the old Ral Partha TSR miniatures that I really like, but haven't gotten around to painting many of them, so one of my new mini-mini-projects is to start painting some up between other things I'm painting. With a tad bit of encouragement by a certain goblinoid, I decided to do these four as a WIP. Why? Who knows, just a way to chronicle them, and who knows how faithfully I'll keep up with it. I was feeling kind of guilty because they're not Reaper figures, but I do use all Reaper paints, so that should lighten my burden of guilt somewhat. So here are the first four pictures that I've done so far. I'll try to post a picture when I get to some pivotal point. First picture is just the figures themselves, primed and on a balsa wood base.
  3. Alright, this here is my first ever metal miniature all painted up. I bought it for a friend that is a massive fan of Dragonlance, and that has a special relationship with Tasslehoff. I loved painting this guy. He has all kinds of little fiddly bits, a neat fur vest, and his leggings and pants had to be bright colors. I also got to try out painting hair, and I think the effect wasn't too bad! I also got to do some stuff I've never done before for his face. I mixed a tanned flesh color with a rosy pink. I then shaded under the cheekbones with tan paint, as well as the chin, nose, and eyes.
  4. Okay, finished another mini. This time, a figure from Ral Partha's Werewolf: The Apocalypse line, in the #69-003 Glasswalker set (thanks to Buglips for the identification). Here we have a front view. Gray might not have been a good color for the shirt, but I wasn't sure of a good color to go with the blue jeans. Went with gray, white and red for the sneakers. May redo the gray as black. Eyes are better than the last human figure I did. Here you can see the back of his bandanna. I figured a US flag pattern would be prety simple to do. I now notice that the red highlights on the sneakers aren't as neat as they look from above. May need to touch that up. Same with the open part of his sleeve. A better view of the bandanna. May need to fix up the places where the red stripes hit the blue.
  5. Since I had so much fun with the last one, I thought I'd go for a second. Only this time leave it up for a week so more people can get in on it and tell me what to do. Er, paint. *channels cylon* By. Your. Command. Anywhat, here's what we've got in the ring. 1. Representing Reaper Miniatures, weighing in with three skeletons and a hot chick, give it up for: 03100, Thanis, Bonecaller! *crowd cheers* *camera flashes strobe* 2. And from RAFM miniatures, for your entertainment with his whacky bag of tricks and prestidigitation, it's 3737, Lich Magician with Skeletal Rabbit! *hand goes up in audience* "Um, excuse me, is that rabbit really dead?" No, sir. It is undead! 3. And from Ral Partha, the woman who wrote the book on dragons, 03-092: Ellana, Dragonmistress. Smaug: "Boo! Hiss! You suck! Bring back my cookware!" 4. And last but not least, straight from the infinite layers of the Abyss, it's a trio from Ral Partha TSR 11-651: Dretch! *Three Stooges Sounds* Who will be crowned Miss Macross . . . uh, I mean who will be painted? You, the Reaperinos, will decide!
  6. Here's a link to another miniature I finished recently. It's linked for some exposed lactators. This was probably one of the first succubae I'd ever seen, and always liked the figure. I actually have one that I painted probably thirty years ago, but this was another one I'd had in the basement, so it's kind of the revamping of a miniature I'd done long, long ago. It was actually a present for a buddy who also had this as an unpainted figure in his display case. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Succubus.jpg
  7. This is the first mini I painted back in 1988. Its a Ral Partha 03-081 Thief with Longsword in Ambush. I know the pictures are very small and I no longer own the mini since it went on a mission with another player years ago. I really enjoyed playing with this guy because of all the gear he carries. He was ready for every situations.
  8. Hi guys, so here's what I've been working on recently, an old Dennis Mize classic miniature from the end of the seventies/beginning of the eighties. I've always liked this miniature and had it originally as a teenager but it somehow disappeared in my parents' home. When I got back into painting (trying to give my own kid a new hobby), I went over to my parents' house and got all of the old miniatures that I could find that were hidden in their garage and basement. There were a few, like this one, that I never could find though. Anyway, I got another copy years later and have finally gotten around to painting it. I took a few photos for some different angles The one thing I wanted to do was to kind of make each side of the ettin a slightly different color scheme. I've always seen all other ettins which are basically the same color on both sides and thought I'd like to try to do it a little bit differently, so my base color on the red-headed size was olive skin and on the blonde side I started out with Terran Khaki. Then I used the olive skin color to wash the terran khaki side and highlighted the olive skin side with the terran khaki. Let me know if you can tell the difference! And the photos aren't all the greatest, especially the face shot of the red-head, but I'm still working through some photo-fu with the new software I have with my relatively new computer. I think I need to build a new "studio" for my miniatures for photos. I can see a lot of paint spots on the background that I always use. So anyhows, let me know what you think! Mark
