Hello all you reaperlaiset! So since the beginning of the year, I've been working on a little project to get all of these Thunderbolt Mountain fairies painted. It's actually taken extra long because I painted two sets of these, and the duplicates were all the same colors, but it logically takes twice as long. It was hard to decide on colors for these guys, but I did want to do a unique skin color for each one and a unique leotard color as well for each one. I ended up doing the tutus the same color because I I would have done each one a different color, it would have take so much longer and as they are kind of a unit, I wanted something that would kind of bring them together. These all belong to a set of Ballerina Fairies, sculpted by Tom Meier, inspired by an idea from his daughter. They were originally from his company Thunderbolt Mountain, and are now available again through Ral Partha Legacy. There's six of them so lots of photos to follow: and here they are together: So these are some pretty small figures, and I'm going to eventually put them on some simple bases. I wouldn't almost mind leaving them like this, but I don't want them to tip over too easily. I might work on the bases this weekend. So anyhoos, enjoy! I had quite a lot of fun painting these. They are very delicate and detailed figures, but didn't take too long to really paint ultimately because they aren't overly laden with all those dingly danglies you find on lots of more modern figures. I've got a few more of these to do with some Pegasi, will do those some day in the not too far-flung future.

Rather pleased with this, I don't have the best track record with large scale minis, it either goes horribly wrong and I never want to go near it again, or I get bored and never manage to work up enough enthusiasm to get back to it, so its nice when I actually manage to finish one! As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
