  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. This is a vintage circa. 1990 figure from Metal Magic, "Witch with Cat" C1017c (thanks to Xherman1964 who helped identify it!) from their set C1017, "Female Wizards". I got it from the Box O' Goodwill project. The original WIP thread is here. I suspended work sometime in April and finished the figure in a speed paint over the Memorial Day weekend.
  5. This is a fine little piece of Old School lead I got from the Box O' Goodwill project. It's a Ral Partha, looks like 2nd edition D&D vintage. The original set (so research tells me) had two magicians, a male and female dressed and posed similarly. I started him in March and finished him off quickly during the Memorial Day Weekend challenge. I can see little sloppy bits, but I think he's okay for tabletop use.
  6. I painted this mini about 25 years ago with Testors, and I was very very proud of it at the time. So proud I brought it to my first GenCon for the painting competition. When I got there, I realized the paintjob really wasn't that great compared to the top entries. I guess that scared me away from painting competitions until I started entering the very friendly competitions here on the Reaper Forums a couple of years ago. This then gave me enough courage to enter 3 figures at ReaperCon last year, where I got a silver, yay. Enough rambling, here is the Grenadier Manticore from long ago (
  7. Classic bucket head warrior. This guy was fun to paint.
  8. I could have sworn I already asked about these, but darned if I can find where. I got given a handful of old school lead figures from a couple of generous sources. Some of them I figured out immediately what they were or lucked into info on the Lost Minis Wiki. But these ones have me stumped, despite in some cases clear markings. May I ask for some help from the collective wisdom? I believe most of these to date from no later than 1991 or so. They have been primed and washed with a thinned brown to bring out detail. 1. Some sort of pretty early orc-goblins, no base markings (subsequently
  9. Over the last 6 months, I've been working on a lengthy project to get a couple of old classic Citadel official D&D mini sets from the 1980's painted up & now, I've finally finished! Thanks to all who viewed, commented, encouraged & supported me along the way. The WIP can be found here. There's two sets, one of Dungeon Adventurers & one of Dungeon Monsters, here's the pics: Encounter shot: Adventurers group shot: Monsters group shot: Elf, Dwarf & Elf: Magic-User, Treasure Chest & Cleric:
  10. When I first started painting armies some years back, I was contacted to paint up a few old-school Praetorian Imperial Guard. I played Imperial guard back when the Praetorians were first released (originally meant in the limited edition box set). I'm also a big fan of the film Zulu! that inspired them (Michael Caine is always good). So I was excited. I figured I wouldn't get a lot of chances to paint Praetorians again, since they were no longer being made, and they weren't ever produced as a regular line of imperial guardsmen. Somehow, I was very wrong. He has expanded his force
  11. This is an old Ral Partha miniature that has been re-purposed into a Blood Bowl coach (this one was for a client, but I've definitely considered getting one of her myself). She has a certain Elmore style about her that really works, and the sculpting was better than I expect from minis the same age (especially on the face). Anyway, here she is:
  12. This mini had broken in our not so recent move (umm 17 years ago). I decided it was time to repair it, so awesome husband glued it together for me and I repaired the paintjob where it had flaked off. If someone knows who made it I would love to know for my records.
  13. Well, Here is a Dreamer Avatar that I got to paint a little while ago (for a client). All together, I think he came out rather well- the detail on the mini is really neat, and the concept is simply outstanding. I had some instructions on certain colors, Honestly, this mini was terrific to paint, and my only complaint about it is that Wyrd discontinued it (along with the other Avatar minis). I'd really love for them to have their 'classic' minis available for some of us. While I can see him being used as the Neverborn Emissary, I honestly think he'd work quite well simply proxying the p
  14. I have been a Doctor Who fan for a while, starting as a kid with Tom Baker on PBS, and I recently began watching more of the Classic Who than I had ever seen - until about two months ago, in fact, I had never seen a single Hartnell or Torughton era show. But now that I'm going back and watching everything - and I do mean everything - I thought I'd make myself useful and make sure the whole world knew my thoughts on each Serial I watched. I've been going for 10 Episodes now, Beginning at Serial ONE (Back in the Hartnell Era), and I'm having a good time with it. If you care to follow al
