  1. Hello all you fine Reaperkloskis! So this evening finally getting around two minis that I did a few weeks back. I painted up the two Ral Partha Djinn, sculpted way back when by Tom Meier. This is the second time I painted them, and this time I actually painted them with the specific desire to try to sell them on the all so nefarious eBay, A- to see if I could get something to sell for a decent price and B- because I need to see if I can buy myself some new paints and such with the proceeds. My miniature budget is not the largest, so on occasion I might do something like try to sell something to see if I can raise some funds for new paints and this time I'm running out of normal-sized bases as well. So anyhoos, here they are, anybody old enough will probably recognize these pretty easily: Here they are together as the set itself: and then here each individual one, first of all the one that I've always likened to Robin Williams, even though a lot skinnier and meaner looking, and sculpted years before the Aladdin movie ever came out The other one being at least the way I've always seen this one, as an Efreet, all warm reds, oranges and yellows: I actually painted these same miniatures quite a many years ago as well, if I recall with craft paints ( the new ones are all done with Reaper paints): and then of course, always fun to compare them side by side: Different brands of paints and probably 10-15 years between paint jobs, always fun to compare! You also might see small differences, for example, shape of sword and one of the blue djinn has a nose ring, while the other does not. Back then lots of Ral Partha figures might have gotten updated or modified to a number of reasons. Couldn't tell you which is the original version however. So anyhow, hope you all enjoy! Viva old school!
  2. So I actually wanted to have this one done on the fourteenth, but I just got too busy with my everyday life. Here's my Valentine's Day contribution, a Winged Succubus Demon, Sculpted by Dennis Mize and definitely looking for love in all the wrong places. She was originally part of one of Larry Elmore's boxed sets, and honestly not sure if there was a painted color version of her or if it originated from a black and white drawing of Elmore's, but in any case, on the box art from 30+ years back, she was normal skinned, with browns and blacks, so I tried to do her a little bit differently, especially since we were right around Valentine's Day, and here is the result: and always nice to get a close-up in when possible: Happy Valentine's Day all, or Friendship Day if you're in Finland, or Happy Wednesday if you're Brazilian!
  3. Good evening all you Reaper addicts! So originally I hadn't planned it this way, but this gal did end up with some Red Sonja colored hair, even though she doesn't look soooo much like Red Sonja except for the little chain mail bikini. And then the other issue I had was I just ran out of ideas and inspiration for her shield, and now as I look at the coloring, who knows what I was thinking, but oh well, what's done is done and working on the next one already. So here she is for your enjoyment I'd have to confirm it, but I think she is one of the ones that Dennis Mize sculpted in response to the Fantasy Tribes, the original Citadel models that Partha resculpted and sold in the US. I also thought I had a bit more white at the tip of her nose, but it doesn't seem to be reflected in the photo. I usually try to always get a good highlight there and thought this was no exception. Alas.... Fun and pretty simple miniature, but yeah, I was totally out of ideas on what to do with the shield, so just did some shapes. Maybe a better shield next time for the next flat defensive surface I have to paint! Anyhoos,enjoy!
  4. Good evening all! So as my quest to keep painting Partha elves continues, here's my most recent one, another Elf Adventurer. This one however has an axe and shield, and this time I didn't do any foresty or pastel colors, rather some black and red. The eagle emblem on his shield made me think of much darker colors than usual. So anyhoos, here he is: This is another one of the figures that Ral Partha Legacy has recently re-released. Small minis, but simple and fun to paint! Thanks for having a gander!
  5. Hello all you Reaperaholics! So here's another Ral Partha Elf, sculpted by Tom Meier, and re-released by Ral Partha Legacy, what was originally a sea elf, originally called Esgalduin, Sea Elf Guardian, offered both on foot and mounted. Nowadays he's at Ral Partha Legacy called Elf Adventurer with Spear. Originally, before I figured out he was a sea elf, I was thinking of painting him in yellows, whites and pinks, but with the advent of this newly discovered knowledge, I decided to throw some blues in there as well, and his shield too was made a sea foam blue or something. So anyhoos, here he is: The shield, being kind of an odd shape, didn't really feel to lend itself to have me put some kind of something on it, so I just painted it a solid color. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  6. So a bit back I painted two other elf miniatures, which were Adriel, in the aspect of a thief and mage, as the original miniature set from Ral Partha way back was Adriel as thief, warrior mage, something like that. The thief and mage are available at Ral Partha Legacy, but this one, the warrior guise isn't available yet. It might be some day, apparently there were issues with the old mold tearing. In any case, here is Adriel as a warrior She is pretty small and dainty, as were most of Tom Meier's eighties figures. and then here she is with her entire blister pack painted up: I've got so many packs of Partha figures that I want to complete, such sets that came in themes and in groups of three or four. I've got a half elf set, half orc set, then lots of the 3 tiered or leveled adventurers. So many miniatures, so little time......
  7. Hello all you Reapertonians, tonight I've got a few Ral Partha figures, originally sculpted back in the eighties by Tom Meier and no re-released by Ral Partha Legacy. With these two by pure coincidence I've also painted these quite a many years ago, so I've got a new version as well as the old version that I painted probably almost a decade ago. So here are the new ones, the female thief I liked how her face came out, hence the close up, but that inside space between nose and hair was a pretty rough cast. And now the Mage: and because I painted these way back when, when I was first getting back into painting (I might even have some of these somewhere in the Reaper Forums archives if I looked hard enough) here are the older versions, which way back when I thought they were pretty decent, but now I at least feel like I've gotten better: and for even more fun and jubilation, some straight off comparison shots: There was a part of me that wanted to replicate the original colors in the new models as well, and maybe some day I'll go back and do that, but for now wanted a bit of variety between the older ones and the new ones. So anyway, hope you enjoy!
  8. Hello all, so here's another old Tom Meier Partha elf that I just finished, been on a elf rampage recently, with some more still in the wings. I'm actually enjoying these older Meier elf sculpts because even though they are kind of small, they are relatively straight forward, not overburdened with extra items on the figure, it's usually the character, clothes, some armor, weapons, and maybe a little bag or something, but that's pretty much it. Anyhoos, here is a Ral Partha Elf Thief, also from that Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Nights Citadel crossover group of elves back from the eighties. Color scheme had me stuck for a while, so went pretty simple on the clothing, off-white and blue. Snazzy little elf with a bag of coin he just swiped off some fat, rich merchant in the street.
  9. Good afternoon, all your Reaperites! So just finished this one up and sun even cooperated for photos, a Cat Burglar, sculpted by Jim Johnson quite a while back, and now available at both Iron Wind Metals and Ral Partha Legacy. Been for whatever random reason working with some anthropomorphic minis, first a fox, then a wereboar, and now a Cat. Odd part on this one were the toenails hanging over the base, as sometimes happens, so made it rise a little bit above the base. So kind of wanted to give him a little bit of a Sylvester vibe, his sleeves might be a little long, but wanted his leg sleeves to be visible above his boots. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  10. Good evening again Keepers of Reaper! So this one, also just finished this morning and photographed this afternoon is a female archer sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the day for Ral Partha and part of their Silver and Steel collection, where Dennis Mize sculpted figures based on Larry Elmore drawings and paintings Only a little metal to worry about, she was a pretty quick paint job. The one thing I think should have been was her arm guard at the back probably should have just been flesh, but I totally blew it off so painted it as cloth to match her loincloth. So anyhoos, another mini for your viewing pleasure! An Edit: Also just added a close up because her eyebrow on the left side as the viewer sees it looked a little bit odd, but I think it's just shadow with the hairline against the side of her head: Close up I see where it begins and ends, but it was looking a little awkward further away.
  11. Good evening my Reaper brethren and sisters! So tonight I've got a mini I just finished, Reynard the Rogue, a figure sculpted I think back in the eighties by Tom Meir. He's an anthropomorphic fox before they were fashionable: and this figure looks coincidentally similar to another figure painted by Mr. Meier a few years earlier, which was a Highwayman, mounted and on foot. Way back in the early eighties I painted the original highwayman: In my adolescent style, with probably at that time Polly S paints and as a base I just used a piece of balsa wood that I painted earth color. It's interesting what almost forty years will do to the brightness of the paint. And then here is a side by side, just for fun: I think my newer version is much more flamboyant than the original one! I've got to see if I have the human version somewhere unpainted. Might have him somewhere, really not sure.
  12. Good afternoon Reapercochlians! So here's one I just finished, a female elf mage, with wand, sculpted by Tom Meier for the last Ral Partha Legacy Kickstarter As always no idea what colors I wanted but something light and pastel. As Mr. Meier is rather infamous for, it's so hard to hit his eyes properly, they are so small. So from the collective hive mind, when you have small eyes on a figure, do you try to keep within the actual confines of what has been sculpted or do you go outside of the boundaries? Anyhoos, here she is: and here's a close up of her face with the eyes: Besides eyes, I'm finding my new favorite hard and horrible thing to paint are the eyebrows. With this one, I almost didn't want to add eyebrows, thinking she's blonde, maybe you wouldn't even see them, but then of course I started looking for blonde elves on line and they are all presented with brows. As you can see, one is a bit different than the other. Sometimes just impossible to get them to look the same. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  13. Good morning alll you Reaperniks! Taking advantage of a later shift this morning to post this lovey lady, a figure sculpted by Dennis Mize for one of the Silver and Steel boxes, which were boxes based on paintings and drawings by Larry Elmore back in the latter eighties early nineties. This one is appropriate called female warrior with sword and torch: and of course always fun to do a close up, even if it may show some of those close up errors: Still fun in any case to take advantage of this close up technology. I should take a bunch of closeups of the minis I painted in the eighties, and maybe that way I'd stop complaining about what I do nowadays! Anyhows, enjoy!
  14. Hi all, painting a bit less infrequently these days due to this and that and the other, but just finished this one recently, a Wizard from Dennis Mize's range Children of the Night. He's a pretty small little guy, probably about half the material a modern mage would take up, pretty faithful to 25 MM: Pretty simple figure but as such rather enjoyable and quick to paint. In the photos there is a weird light reflection in his cape in the darkest recesses which is weird because there's not an unpainted patch there, just odd the way the light hit it. Anyhoos, enjoy this blast from the past, I think this is one of those 1979-1982 figures, forgot to look at the bottom.
  15. And the last mini of the evening, this one is an eastern wizard, sculpted by Dennis Mize. Mize was a very big fan of Harryhausen movies and stop motion animation, and this was his version of one of their wizards from one of those great old Sinbad movie. I don't remember when these figures were sculpted but this, along with some other from the same genre were some of the last miniatures Mize did for Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals. As always, colors were hard to choose. The one thing I knew I wanted was for him to have that kind of cool dyed orangish beard that I've seen before in some Middle Eastern older gentlemen. Anyhoos, here he is: The hardest thing to do on this gent was his eyes because they are so deeply set. I'm still not exactly sure what they look like.
  16. And another finished mini this evening! So I've had a free-ish week and have been busy like a Keebler elf making cookies, painting as much as time would permit. This one is a Vampire Lord as per its original packaging back from either late seventies or early eighties. Later on when he got separated from the blister pack, they called him a gesturing wizard. With this in mind, my question was do I make him a vampire or a wizard? So I wanted to have him pale and pasty like his vampirish early concept, so here is the result:
  17. Good evening my Reaperlangarians! So it feels like I haven't been too productive this year, got kind of stuck on painting Lord Soth, which seemed to take longer than it should have, but now that he's painted up, it's onwards to other little projects. These two I actually finished last weekend, but I always take pictures with sunny weather, but it's been cloudy all week long until today. The only time it was sunny was last Sunday when I got up, went grocery shopping really quickly to Aldis and when I got home, saw the sun. I went into the shower really quickly to clean up and then I was going to take pictures of these ladies, but by the time I got out and dried off it was cloudy again. So anyhoos, pictures finally taken and here they are, the first is a Female Dwarven Warrior, not too sure who sculpted her: and the next one is Kylie Darkwalker, a Wild Elf Thief, sculptor also unknown: I like both figures, both pretty fun. I like them especially because they are Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figures, but I think sculpted much later in the company's history. I'm guessing latter nineties, but no way to be sure without asking. I'm a bit puzzled by my choice of colors for the elf. I figured wild elf, and though kind of woodsy elf, with brown skin (base code was Reaper's shield brown), and her top is green, but then she has those funky purple pants. She kind of reminds me if I harken back to the days of an old Olivia Newton John video, Let's Get Physical, or something like that where she has a green top and I think pinky/purply spandex pants. I actually just went to look at a picture and my memory was a bit faulty, it was a bright blue top and pink sweatpants. In any case, hope these provide moments of visual pleasure and simulation, until the next chunk of minis!
  18. Hello my Reaperleapers! So I wanted to repaint this figure, that I had probably already painted ten years ago, because I never liked her left eye, thinking it was too big and bulbous, and I thought it was due to my actual paint job. So I painted the eye, as it's small and hard to get gauge with a line instead of a dot, so maybe it looked to me for that reason a little bit odd as well. So fast forward a decade and I decided to repaint her with a different color scheme with the hopes of repairing her eye, but with the second time around, I realized that the sculpt of the eye was just big and round. So here's my new version, different color scheme and with the thought of eye reparations that didn't apparently seem to work out or matter: and here's the original one from who knows how far back: and here they are together: I think I actually like the coloring on the first one better, with the white and red. I think maybe the metal turned out better on the newer one (even though I still think the axe head is too blue) and I tried to do some bronze/brass/who knows what color on her grieves and the thingy that goes around her throat, but who knows. I'm still not that satisfied. Are we just doomed to never be satisfied with some of our little projects?
  19. Hello all you Reaper Acolytes! So tonight going a little demonic, just finished painting these three Demon Women, sculpted by Dennis Mize. I'm not so sure how good the photos actually are, they end up being a lot smaller on detail because they've got those big, tall wings. I'm also kind of wondering about their faces. With my thought of "demon women", I thought they'd be a little more natural, not tons of makeup, so I didn't put in any eye shadow or even eyebrows. I also did eyes without pupils. I wanted to do some different colors, so the red one has yellow eyes, the white one green eyes, and the purple one has light blue eyes. I'm. not so well though these translate visually, and I'm vaguely considering painting them again, but not so sure because once I finish something I'm usually moving on to the next project already. So we'll see. The white lady's eyes seemingly were a bit more pale than I wanted for example, and the red one's eyes seem too flat. The purple one's eyes in the photos actually look to me more white than blue. So maybe I'll update. who knows.... As always, apart from thinking of how the eyes turned out, the biggest issue was choosing colors. I knew the skin colors I wanted, but the clothes were another story all together. Eventually had to choose some color, and I knew I wanted the lava-ey bases, so hopefully they all turned out okay. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  20. Hello all you Reaperphonics! So today's mini is a Druid, originally sculpted for Kenzer and Company under a miniature line they had for a number of years and afterwards sold to Iron Wind Metals who produces him nowadays. I have no idea who the sculptor is, maybe somebody else does. I've always liked this figure. Like so many of the Hackmaster figures, he's kind of a bit chunky and "raw", but he's got a goodly amount of personality, and was enjoyable to paint. I did notice that I've been painting a lot of purple pants lately, need to stop doing that.
  21. Good morning all you Reaperphonics! So this morning a miniature I just finished, and for this, so many different little elements, I just kept choosing and choosing and choosing colors as they were painted because I had no idea what I wanted to do, just that I wanted him painted finally after so many years of just sitting there and mocking me. I really like this little guy, love his little, tiny familiar on his shoulder and the open potion bottle, extremely fun. Sculpted by Richard Kerr in 1992, so 30 years old (just went downstairs and checked another copy I had to him for the year). Beyond a traveling wizard he almost gives me kind of a pimpy vibe, struttin' his stuff, but maybe he just pimps out lady demons on the side. So anyway, hope you all like him, let me know if you think there are too many colors or if it actually ends up working!
  22. So, finished this one up over the weekend and got some pictures taken. I didn't really realize it but I've been painting a decent number of magic users recently, and here's another to add to the list, a "wizard with staff", sculpted by Julie Guthrie, probably back in the latter eighties, fun piece. I didn't want him to look too old with a white beard, so went with a darker color. One more down, thousands more to go!
  23. Good morning all you folk of the Reaper persuasion, who maybe should get their own pronoun, re. So I just finished this evil wizard up, sculpted way back in the eighties by Dennis Mize, I think to replace an earlier Citadel model. Tried to keep him dark, and originally thought about starting all black and just use different highlight coloring for the cape and for the cloak, but then kind of wussed out and thought nothing cries evil like a man with a pink cloak (a la Roose Bolton) so here he is for your viewing pleasure: Enjoy all of his fashion glory!
  24. Hello All, so hopefully after my anthropomorphic cat, this one won't be a disappointment! So probably already about two years ago, I sold my original version of this mini for an amount that I just could not refuse (and was in fact instrumental in giving me funds for Bones VI), and figured I'd just paint her again. It took forever to get around to it, but now I've gotten my second rendition of her, and she is underneath: I am reasonably satisfied with her but the issue I have is with her eyes. Even though live it doesn't seem she has them, she has in the photos at least large dark lines under them. Here is the original version of this chick that I painted maybe around 2018: where I like her eyes a whole lot better in the second blue version, or actually the first original version. As I go back to an unpainted version of this gal, I'm a bit confused because the actual eyes are actually rather large and circular, more akin to the pink dressed lass, so not what sure what has happened. All in all though, being I do have another unpainted version of her, I almost feel obligated to want to try again until I'm 100% happy. Does anybody else ever have this issue? I'm not sure when I'll get around to version number three, but I'm guessing it might frustrate me to have it done in 2023 sometimes amongst all my little other projects.
  25. Hello all you Reapernikud! So latest painted figure, and I'm not 100% sure but I think this was sculpted by Dennis Mize , a Crouching Ranger with Sword: Greens, browns and blacks, rangery colors. Enjoy!
