  1. Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.
  2. A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles). I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished. Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.
  3. Hello all you Reaper Acolytes! So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off: A Thumper Standard Bearer, I think sculpted by Richard Kerr. It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally. Hopefully his banner is legible! After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black. I did so this time, so hopefully the banner te
  4. Good afternoon my Reapergogglians! So just finished up Ann Penchyk, a Shadowrun character apparently (don't know too much about Shadowrun still, after months and months of painting different Shadowrun figures. I really dig this little blister pack, where we have Ann dressed in her corporate 9-5 job, and then the another version of her, the "adventurer" version of her. So with that in mind, I at least tried to keep her skin tones, hair color, et cetera the same so it looks like she just might be the same gal in different attire. 9-5 Ann:
  5. This is the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Back in the 90s a product of FanPro and nowadays casted by Ral Partha. My Kids used this model a lot, so I decided to Paint this next. His Mount seemed to be a little small and didnt fit to a grandmaster of a Order of knights. So I Made a Base which should impose a little Hill on the battlefield.
  6. Hello all you Reaperhemians! So my last four minis were a blister pack of Ral Partha Shadowrun Tribals, sculpted by Dennis Mize, with a date stamped on the bottom of 1992, so 19 years ago.(EDIT -apparently I can’t do math. I was thinking a moment ago, wait, my kid is twenty eight years old and he was born in 1992, so the miniature is actually 28 or so years old!) I really enjoyed working on these figures. The first thing was the Native American skin, for which I used the Redstone Triad to get figured out. I hope it doesn't look too red. The other thing was all the beads they h
  7. Good morning Reaperniks! So I've had this mini painted already about a week, but here in Omaha, it's been mostly kind of cloudy and rainy, so wasn't able to get a decent picture until this morning. This is Merlyon the Sorcerer, formerly of Thunderbolt Mountain and now being released by Ral Partha Legacy. Pretty fun figure to paint, and it's more akin to that 25 mm of yore: I still have a few more from this range I want to get around to painting. This one also had the eyeholes poked into the eyes, but they worked out this time pretty simply.
  8. Took a shot at the ol OSL. This model is from my youth that I'd always been afraid to paint because i didn't want to mess it up. Years later, now I feel like my skills are better and it was worth a shot. Not only did I take a shot, I did it with a real challenge applied to it. I was either going to mess it up - or REALLY mess it up. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Using the colors red and purple seem very wizardly. Felt like a strong combo and happy with it. * The OSL I did was using a dry brush and sweeping it from the main source and only moving
  9. Good evening all you Reaper Spirits! So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure. Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female. With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays. Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day! Enjoy!
  10. And hello again, my Reaper brethren and sistern, Another mini I finished just this afternoon, a Ral Partha Mage with Wand, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the late seventies or early eighties. He came from the Children of the Night range, and his blister pack was originally called Shadow Elves or something like that, but nowadays at Iron Wind Metals, he's just known as Mage with Wand. I was going to use my normal camera to take these pictures, but my battery died and I didn't have any left at home, so took this one again too with my iPhone. he came out okay, not sure if too much
  11. Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers, So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy. I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it. I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all. My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure? To give a compariso
  12. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece drag
  13. Hello Reaperdeepers! So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress: not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes. This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole. As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now. Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to
  14. Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes. The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use. As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end u
  15. Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors. Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both First up: the Panther dragon from Ral Partha. This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint. This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear. This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it. I finally just broke down and said I am
  16. It only took me 35+ years to paint these.... Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/ I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow
  17. Hello all those in Reaperdom! So just finished this figure last night and just got him photographed, an Earth Elemental Lord, sculpted by Jim Johnson. Tried to keep him mostly in earth tones because he's an Earth Elemental Lord: His original blister came with a large earth elemental and a little elemental lizard. Going to be painting those in the near future. Enjoy!
  18. Hello all you Reapervellians, So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these. These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
  19. Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.
  20. And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion, So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon. This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next. This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties. Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones. The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue. I wanted to origi
  21. Good morning my Reapertonians! So recently I've been not only just doing individual figures, but also "sets", figured belonging or previously belonging to blister packs and today is no exception. I just finished painting a set of Ral Partha Town Guards, sculpted back in the 90's I think by Jim Johnson. As I go through a lot of my minis, it's impressive of what a large library of work Mr. Johnson has created. All this and I know virtually nothing about the guy. Anyhoos, being that these are town guards from the same town, I wanted them to all have a simila
  22. Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes! So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell. As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with: The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out: Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space. So I did what I could. Anyway hope you all enjoy!
  23. I love me some weekend painting! Got another one from the 90's batch of Ral Partha's. This one is a Drow Elf. Was feeling like trying some of the darker skin tones after watching another RVE on it. Feels pretty good! BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Skin combo: Black Brown, Black Red, Orange Red. Used in conjunction with one another. The highlights are still on the darker side, but you can still make out muscle and shape. Win! * Used copper/brown combo to bring this guy to life. Feels very warm, but still needs some kind of "pop" color somewhere. I
  24. Gotta love the weekend. Time to get caught up on some minis! This particular mini is sentimental to me. I had picked them up back in 1990 when I was just finding my way with painting. Sadly, it would only be a few years before I found sports and other things to occupy my time and left the hobby for 30 years. 30 years later, though I'm rearing to go! My parents send these minis to me that they found at the old house and I happily take them. A few were somewhat painted and a few were only primed. This is one that was somewhat painted, but nothing I felt reluctant
  25. Tere Reaperlased! So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line. This is apparently version two of the miniature. The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur Julie Guthrie Hill Giant Julie Guthrie Centaurs Anyhoos, here she is: and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against o
