  1. So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it. So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!
  2. Good evening everybody, so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages. I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties. Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!
  3. Hi guys, so I'm slowly working my way through some Shadowrun figures, and here is my latest one. This is number three of a set of four Street Mages, one more left to go on the set. Tried to use pretty much just greys, blues and purples, didn't want too much contrast! So anyhoos, not too much metal on this figure, which was kind of nice. Next one hopefully in a few days to complete the set!
  4. So I continue painting Shadowrun figures, really enjoying them a lot! Tonight's figure is another mage, a Corporate Mage with staff. I see a few spots I'm not too fond of, but overall not too disappointed. I actually like how her black leather boots turned out! An odd little aspect of the figure is that curly, frizzy hair she has. I've seen a number of Dennis Mize sculpts with that hair style. Not really sure why he did that. It was suggested to me that it's because he used often the same heads over again, but still makes me wonder why he did the frizz in the first place Working on her at the same time as I've been working on another gal with the same flesh tones, so hopefully I'll have another one ready soon!
  5. Good evening everybody! So just finished another Shadowrun figure, a Street Mage with a Moon Staff. I'm not sure if the sculptor is Dennis Mize, I'm almost sure it is, but her face is a little different than a typical Mize piece. I'm going to eventually paint the entire set she came with, a bunch of Street Mages, which is why I didn't actually put her on a base, but rather painted the one she came with. It's pretty large and stable and when the other three are finished I'll want to photograph them all together, and if they're all on bases, they might not fit comfortably in the photo. So more to come! Really enjoying these Shadowrun figures. This figure I like in particular because it kind of could fit just about anywhere, she could be fantasy without any guns or modern weaponry or technology tying her down, or she could still fit in with the "post-modern" Shadowrun vibe. I may end up basing her eventually, because I really do prefer figures be on bases because they wouldn't be touched so much. So, anyhows, hopefully you like her!
  6. One of my old Shadowrun mini's I got back in the 90's. originally slathered on some testors enamel paint and called it a day. Imagine gloss hot red for the pants, a white shirt and tan only for the face with wood brown hair. Now he has been stripped, repainted and I think looks a lot better. Still need to work on some things. lighter tone skin shadows and highlight still seem a bit tricky and was at a lose as to what to do to shade some parts of the wasp hand as well as the feet so improvised. I still have to do the same to the 2 wasp forms that came in the old blister pack but going back and redoing these old minis is great seeing where i was and where i am as a painter. you can still get this guy through Iron Wind Metals, Item # DS-053
  7. So here's another homage figure I just finished. Ral Partha back in the day did a few figures based on popular figures of the time. The dwarf samurai I did recently was one, and here is another one, Elvis, King of the Bards. So hard to choose colors on him, so ended up kind of with a red, white and blue motif, kind of close to Fourth of July. He has some really small circular eyes, but they turned out surprisingly well. When I was editing the photos and got a good look at them, they were actually pretty decently laced. Anyhow, another great old Partha figure to enjoy!
  8. Hello all, here are some more Shadowrun figures that I've been working on. Two excellent figures, probably sculpted back in the nineties by Dave Summers, two Shadowrun Dwarven Mercenaries. As usual, so hard to decide upon colors, but I think they worked out reasonably well. The first one is a delicate dwarven lady: and her stalwart male companion: First time I've ever painted modern weaponry, so hoping they turned out okay. With choosing colors, in an effort to make my life a little bit easier, I gave them the same color overcoat, just painted different color detailing on them. I find that a nice change of genre is pretty fun, I'm enjoying painting something a little less fantasy and more sci-fi for a while. I'll hope to have more of these coming soon! Enjoy!
  9. So switching a bit of genres, decided to work on some cyberpunk stuff, so started painting some Ral Partha Shadowrun figures. These two are two Street Mages, both sculpted by Tom Meier, I'm guessing back in the eighties or early nineties (forgot to check the bottom for a date stamp). With them both, I still see some mold lines when I look, really need to make sure I get rid of those a bit better. Kind of hard to decide on colors for these. When you look at the art that's running around on line for Shadow run, it's a combination of different shades of black or very bright colors, especially in hair, so hopefully the colors I chose made some sense. Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
  10. EDIT: Added photo with a finished base Pretty much done, in actual sun light you can see some of the highlights on the skin, so I'm happy with that being it was my first time trying that, just going to have to practice some more, still considering she's missing half her face to the cast error she came out looking a lot better once paint was added. Also really like how the red hair triad worked out. What I learned 1. Skin is tricky but not as intimidating as I thought it was. 2. With work miscasts can end up looking good. 3. Always outline the eyes, though I think I'm going to try a walnut brown next time for fair skin. 4. Practice practice practice C&C always welcome.
  11. Belinda, Knight of the Light [03-085] Very old mini that I got when Ral Partha was still Ral Partha back in 95, kind of wish i kept the catalog from back then, unfortunately was a miscast so the face details were every shallow with no nose or lips as well as her dagger hilt not fully cast, game i had gotten her for fell through and never ended up using or painting her. So now i'm going use Belinda to practice painting. although probably making it hard on my self being the mini is probably 25-20mm rather then 28mm. So far i tried out the Betty Davis eye technique which considering that this mini is so small was hard to hit only the eyes. also tried out the orange hair paint triad. Flesh so far is just rosy flesh C&C always welcome.
  12. Hi all, a figure I just finished yesterday (or so I thought). This is the Ral Partha Town Constable, and I was kind of intrigued by him, as he isn't a very heroic or noble looking figure, he looks a little bit lost, so I contacted Iron Wind and asked them if he was supposed to represent somebody and lo and behold, he is actually based on Tim Conway, and the figure at the time that was sold in his blister, a cowardly paladin, was based off of Don Knots. Who would have known? So I took these pictures yesterday quickly at lunch and posted them out where I usually do on Instagram, and as I looked at them, I noticed I had forgotten to paint something. So today's quiz is what did I forget to paint? To make it easier you can see it on the picture from behind. Hopefully I don't get now 147 other things that I forgot to paint, but we'll see. Anyhoos, enjoy and happy Independence day to all you gringos!
  13. Here's a big batch of miniatures, no common theme, that I finished recently. The "Eyedra" assembled as the more generic Hydra option, from "Dark Platypus Games". Thanks to the Reaper Box of Goodwill for this one. A Ral Partha "Dwarf Thief", more suited as a Gnome to modern scale, also acquired from the Box of Goodwill. To celebrate their return to 5E in "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes", a Giff, 3D printed from designs from the wonderful DM Workshop. A Goblin Monk. I believe he's originally an Orcling from Foundry/Warmonger. Another Goblin, perhaps an Alchemist. A Warhammer Snotling. A Dire Pillbug, originally intended as a Myconid Mount, from "Ganesha Games", in their "Fightin' Fungi" range. Also of note is the backdrop, which are my in progress 3D printed Caverns set from "Printable Scenery"
  14. Here is a Wyvern from Ral Partha - I love the sculpt -particularly the expression
  15. Hi guys, so here's a figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha Saturday Night Fever Samurai, who I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's based on John Belushi. Pretty straight forward figure to paint, and I wanted to give him more of a five o'clock shadow (thanks Patrick for the advice) but I just gave it to him where it was actually kind of sculpted in. I looked at a few reference pictures of John Belushi in his Samurai suit, but eventually went a slightly different route to give a bit more color to him. I tried to get a little bit of heat from his cigar too, don't know if you can notice a bit of red and yellow by the ash? Anyhows, I hope you guys all enjoy this little blast from the past!
  16. Good evening folks, So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so. I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.
  17. This is one of the figures I nabbed from the recent BoGW. Our group is currently running Rise of the Runelords, so my husband the DM was very happy to gain another ogre. It is hard to tell in the photos, but the nasty looking sword in back was done in folkart color shift green flash paint for a nasty looking magic weapon.
  18. This figure has been on my shelf of shame for a long time. I think I got him around 1985. He' s been started and then stripped at least once since then. I consider him finished, and he won't be glued to a base. The base reads "Ral Partha 1979". 38 projects left on my shelf of shame.
  19. Good evening everybody, Just finished this one last night, an old Ral Partha Robin Hood, sculpted by Dennis Mize with a Citadel Crossover group of figures way back when. Very classic feel on this one, and of course, even though green was the obvious choice, it ended up taking me forever to figure out where to put what color. Anyhow, very nice little figure, not too complicated to paint!
  20. Isn't she a cutie? Catie is 25 and single. Her hobbies include swamp-wallowing, adventurer-eating and needlepoint.
  21. I have been busy painting these past months, but I have not been taking pictures and posting much, and these guys are to blame for that. I started them up many many years ago, but never could come up with a good paint scheme. My Monstrous Manual didn't have any pictures let alone a decent description, and the older pictures were all line art or black & white. Finally earlier this year I took a look at them again and was able to find 3rd ed pictures and descriptions and while very different than the old school versions it at least gave me a starting point. I could have just done them up in any ld color and been happy, but no color scheme really stood out to me, so "traditional" it is. their fur ended up not being as white as I would have liked and it doesn't help that it's hard to tell if something is supposed to be furred or bare blue skin, but Ithink it's more or less ok now. Now the reason I haven't posted was because for a while now I have just not been able to take miniature photos I'm at all happy with and these guys were the worst for it since they are mostly blue and white so it was hard to get a picture where their eyes (which I spent quite a bit of time on) even remotely stood out. Even now I'm not completely happy with the pictures, but like the minis I guess I just have to learn when it's just good enough. So without any further ado Taer This one got panted black with grey dry brushing for a while, but it just didn't seem like enough. This one was the worst to photograph as his rock kept casting shadows on his face. i like how the rock turned out at least. This one spent the last decade solid grey. I wish I could have done more to make the eyes stand out, but my hand is not very steady so it either works or it doesn't. The team together. Ready to fight off adventurers and keep them from invading their snowy mountaintop dungeon complex Really turned down the settings on this picture because even the previous pictures look too washed out now that I've got them cropped down. Comments? Critiques? Photography advice? Business ventures for for young Taer seeking promising careers with advancement opportunities? Edit: Gah! Blown up the first 3 photos look even worse now. I may retake them and replace them at some point, if I can ever pin down whats going wrong. in the last photo I turned off the auto settings on my phone and set them manually, but it was all guess work since literally none of the buttons and symbols mean anything to me.
  22. This is a teeny-tiny old Ral Partha dwarf. I don't know the SKU. Ratmaster2000 identified him as 01-070b, Dwarf Seer w/ Crystal Ball. I suspect he was sculpted by Tom Meier, given the delicacy and the anatomical accuracy. He is the first dwarf I have finished from the WIP thread Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs: 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess and a bunch of dwarfs as Exalted Jadeborn. As ever, comments and critiques are welcome. How small is he? This small:
  23. Good morning everybody! So just finished painting this one Friday I think, and getting around to posting him. This one I think is one of Ral Partha's older Citadel crossovers, where something happened wherein Partha had to rescuplt new versions of some Citadel pieces. I think this was probably one of them not sure of the actual origin, and really not sure of the sculptor. I think It's Bob Charette, because there are similar faces with some other minis, but this is yet to be confirmed. Anyhoos, fun figure to paint, not a super svelte, big-boobed super model, and a very flat figure, but fun armor, shield and personality. Color choice as always was a big issue, had no idea what colors to do her. She got tanned skin because I was painting her with some other figures, plus she's a warrior, so she probably runs around outside a lot. The red hair? Why not is the only answer I can come up with. The hardest part of this one, was her upper lip, because she really didn't have much of one. So hope that turned out okay. In any case, enjoy!
  24. So seeing pingo's old ral partha dwarf seer painted up, I decided to pull out my old one and post it. I think I did this mini over 20 years ago
  25. Heres another ral partha mini I did at least 20 years ago. She's from the 20th century plus series, spies.
