  1. FIGURE...Grenadier # 2009 (Wizards Room Set - Cauldron with conjured face)...circa (1980-81)... MY TITLE FOR PIECE...The Black Cauldron... STORY LINE...The adventure group has battled climbing the mountain for hours now...crevasse after crevasse...higher and higher...to a height were only moss covers the rocks and gnarled barren trees dot the landscape. You finally reach a small rocky plateau...at the back end is a rocky niche that contains a black cauldron just sitting there. Upon investigation, you find that there is no fire and the cauldron is ice cold...yet it seems to be boiling with some kind of reddish/blackish liquid filled with things that look like tentacles. As you stand at the ready, poised for action, a reddish black mist or smoke rises from the vile liquid and a face appears in the mist (a face that looks like it has seen the coming and going of many ages past). The face speaks in a voice that sounds like it is coming from the depths of an endless void...he says " your destiny awaits...he knows you are coming...he waits "! In a flash...the face is gone...the cauldron is cold and empty...your group stands on the small rocky plateau alone...alone, but with each persons thoughts of what just happened and what might be coming next.........
  2. This guy was WIP for a long time, but I finally got around to finishing him up. I'm happy with the red skin on him, it came out pretty well. His eyes are almost impossible to actually paint, though, they're so deep in the sockets. I ended up just shading the socket and calling it done, which I think looks alright. The metallics are a little disappointing in retrospect, but not worth redoing at this point. T'Quan is a really nice figure, and one that you don't see painted up all that often. One of the highlights of the Dungeon Adventurers boxed set.
  3. AMAZON ARMY PRIVATE COLLECTION...This is the (7th) figure in my Amazon army. FIGURE...Reaper (# 03559)...Zala Natar, Huntress. Hope you like...
  4. FIGURES...I have finished figures # 5 & # 6 of my Amazon Army Private Collection. FIGURE # 5...Hasslefree (Gayle leaning on her spear) # HFH015 FIGURE # 6...Darksword (Elf Warrior) # DSM1164 Both of these figures contain nudity...so I can not post them here...for anyone interested in seeing them; they are posted on my FB page. If you are interested, please send a friend request to Paul Kristoff/Facebook. I have tried twice to paste my FB address here...but I have not been successful...Now you know why I refer to myself as a complete Computer Idiot.
  5. VIGNETTE TITLE...Apocalyptic Beauty in Rubble. FIGURE...Malifaux # WYR5020 (Hollow Waif) NOTE...There are so many modern day apocalyptic miniature figures in modern dress/garb...I wanted to do mine in a semi Steampunk-Victorian style of wardrobe. I figure that a girl can hunt/kill zombies and such all day long...but still look sexy and not like some combat grunt or corporate executive. It least that is my vision on the matter. Hope you like.
  6. VIGNETTE TITLE...Steampunk Wants You! NOTE...I just finished this private vignette; first posted on or about March 28, 2013. FIGURES...Female (Malifaux # WYR3024)...Colette Du Bois Cat & Lamppost (Malifaux # WYR0016)...Victorian Accessories Hope you like it.
  7. AMAZON ARMY PRIVATE COLLECTION...This is the (4th) figure of my Amazon army. FIGURE...Citadel (Big Mama's Series - vintage figure)...Sorry, no SKU information. NOTE...This is the last figure that I will post for a while...have to wait till my ordered figures arrive...also, the next two that I am currently working on...can not be posted due to topless status...(Darksword Elf Warrior DSM 1164 and Hasslefree Gayle leaning on spear HFH015).
  8. AMAZON ARMY PRIVATE COLLECTION...This is the (3rd) figure of my Amazon army. FIGURE...Reaper (# 03406) Anjanis, Elf Druid.
  9. AMAZON ARMY PRIVATE COLLECTION...This is the (2nd) figure of my Amazon Army. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02528)...Kara, Female Archer.
  10. VIGNETTES...As an avid collector and painter of miniature figures...I work hard at trying to come up with cute vignettes...sometimes requiring the conjunction of two miniatures from different companies...I try to build pieces that are like a snapshot (telling a story)...Vignettes are my love and passion...BUT! AVID COLLECTOR...I am also an avid collector and painter of two series of miniature lines...(Amazon Female Warriors) and (Female Pirate Figures)...both of which I am working on as private collections in simple non-vignette pieces. After many long months, I have started working on my Amazon Female Warriors...this posting is the 1st such figure in my (private army)...I have just ordered 10 varied amazon female figures from varied companies and look forward to their arrival in a couple of weeks. I will post them as I finish each one...sorry to say that I will/can not post a number of them due to the fact that they are topless with exposed breasts and I do not want to cover them up (just for posting) because they look fantastic as they are cast. 1ST FIGURE...Reaper, Lorna The Huntress # 02476.
  11. VIGNETTE TITLE...The Mushroom Garden of Fae FIGURE...Reaper Nymph # 02741 (Set)... NOTE...I just finished this vignette piece for my wife as an anniversary gift (our 45th) for her china cabinet. Except for the miniature figure; the entire vignette is scratch built. Since it is a display piece for my wife...the vignette was finished in a high gloss protective spray...the wooden base was sprayed with Minwax High Gloss Polycrylic Spray (used to protect wood)...and the scene was sprayed with Duncan High Gloss Ceramic Spray (used for porcelain figurines). The miniature was painted as a blue Sylph (an enchantress creature/character akin to the Dryad & Selkie)...and this is her enchanted mushroom garden. I did not add the pixies, nixies and sprites that usually surround her nor the will-o-the-wisps that are usually found in her area...I wanted to keep the vignette simple. I hope the true natural enchantment fantasy buffs out there like this piece...it gave me a warm loving feeling building this little piece.
  12. FIGURE...Ral Parth...(Djinn Blister Pack # 01-069)...circa (1979). NOTE...Most figure painters paint the varied Djinn miniatures completely (as being there)...I tried to depict my figure in the process of materialization as he comes forth from some far unknown region of the fantasy Netherrealm...I tried to simulate a pixel process as he materializes and takes on his coloration...Let me know what you think of my attempt. THANK YOU...Over the past month, I have tried to bring you some oldies from the past; I hope that you enjoyed the walk through the miniatures of yesteryear...as I have presented (14) such varied figures. I am going to take a break from these for a while and work on a few private vignettes that I have floating around in my head.
  13. VIGNETTE...Little Red Riding Hood & The Big Bad Wolf... NOTE...I wanted to do a private collection vignette of Red Riding Hood & The Wolf along the Grimm Fairy Tales art line...I could not find a figure that fit my mind eye view of Red Riding Hood...so this is what I came up with in the conversion building of this vignette...I think that it is cute, straight forward and comes close to what I had in my artist mind eye...I like it...I hope that you all like it also. PHOTO 1 & 2...Shows the back part of the vignette clearly...I used the Grenadier Troll (Horrors of the Marsh # 2010b)...circa (1983)...and painted it up like a werewolf. PHOTO 3...Shows the figure that I used for Red Riding Hood (Reaper #50176 - Sugar, Anime Heroine)...the red cape (scratch built out of sheet lead)...pic-nic basket scratch built out of plastic parts. PHOTOS 4 - 9...Show the completed vignette with the details (walking stick, cape, basket and landscape added).
  14. MINIATURE...Hand from the grave...scratch built...all items are from my parts box...the cacti is real tiny cacti from the desert. PROTOTYPE...The request for this very unusual and weird piece came from a writer/artist; who wanted me to do a desert piece of a hanged cowboy coming back from the grave in skeleton form...with the hand reaching up for the hangman's noose. He wanted to do some comic type drawings and needed a visual reference to work by. This is the prototype I built and sent him...he really liked it...used it for his work...and I was nicely compensated. In my years...I have had some off-the-wall requests.
  15. FIGURE...Grenadier (Brain Absorber # 2012)...circa (1983)...(Subterranean Terrors Box Set).
  16. FIGURE...Grenadier (Vegetation Beast - Marsh Horror Set # 2010)...circa (1983)
  17. FIGURE...Grenadier (Lamia # 5004N - Tomb Of Spells Set)...circa (1980). I have to say, in defense of my limited miniature figure painting ability (which is greatly inferior to the abilities/talents of many that I share this forum with)...this is one of the poorest and crudest figure castings produced/released by Grenadier during the era of (1978-1981)...the worst part of this casting (for those who are familiar with the piece) is the/her face (which looks like she was in a train wreck)! But with all the faults; I love this figure...her pose suggests complete peace and tranquility...relaxed and in total harmony with the world. So I have tried to do her justice with this little piece (as poor/crude as it might be). Hope you older members like this small vintage piece/figure from yesteryear (33 years ago)!
  18. FIGURE...Otherworld (Rust Monster - OWM-DM18)... NOTE...Although not what I would consider a true vintage (a miniature that is 25+ years old) miniature piece...this pesky little creature is one of my favorite fantasy creatures in the D&D type world...I have used him in most cave and dungeon adventures that my group(s) have been it...My group(s) have thrown everything at this little fellow (iron spikes, brass lanterns, hammers...everything but the kitchen sink).
  19. FIGURE...Grenadier (Cave Fisher #2012D - Dwellers of the Deep Set)...circa (1980) NOTE...In all my years of fantasy gaming, I have never used this creature in an encounter of any kind for/with any of my adventure groups.
  20. Ever since my grandson saw the movie (300)...he has asked me to paint him a spartan miniature...he also plays on an international flag football team that are called the (Spartans). So this piece was painted for him and mounted on a varnished walnut display base...He requested that I keep it simple with no trees, flowers, etc...just the spartan warrior with helm, shield and spear (like the characters in the movie). FIGURE...Ral Partha (Titan # 01-108)...circa 1985-86.
  21. I am in the process of painting (for game play) some older figures (vintage, if you will) from yesteryear. I love painting these older figures...for some reason, I feel that they have a certain character to them that for some reason is lacking in a lot of the modern era figures/castings. Posted here are the following miniatures; PHOTOS 1-4...Ral Parth (Giant Skeleton # 02-940) circa 1985... PHOTOS 5-6...Grenadier (Death Lord # 150) circa 1986... PHOTOS 7-10...Alternate Armies (Chicol The One Legged # CM19) circa 1992... PHOTOS 11-14...Grenadier (Beholder # 104) circa 1984... I hope that you like these old figures...I have the next (4) mounted on sticks & will prime them later today.
  22. FIGURE...(AD&D - Grenadier # 105) Blister pack figure (circa 1985-86). I want to thank member araziel for helping identify this figure for me (since I had no data information on it). I tried to execute this entity as a semi-sinister character (not really friendly like the blue djinni in Sinbad)...so I tried to keep the facial expression stern and no nonsense (like...what do you want now...why are you bothering me?) More vintage figures are in the works...it is really great getting back to these older figures from yesteryear.
  23. I am going to start work on this vintage miniature. I would appreciate if anyone can identify it for me (I have no data on it)...What company put it out...an ID/SKU number if possible and if your know the year it was made/marketed...Thank you for your help.
  24. Since I am currently busy painting some older miniature (vintage, if you will) figures; I decided to take a piece from my private collection showcase and post it. This is the male Frost Giant by Grenadier (circa 1985). When I started painting miniature figures about 18 months ago; this was the 2nd figure that I selected to paint. I think this is one of the most beautiful fantasy figures (castings) that I have ever come across and I still love it today.
  25. I am about to start work/painting on these (2) ogre figures...but have lost all data on them. Anyone out there who can identify these for me...please do so. They are circa 1991 and came in a blister pack...but I do not know who released them or their SKU numbers. Thank you for your help!
