So I started a little project in which I have five or six figures, old Grenadiers, that I painted when I was a teenager in the eighties. I found new copies of them and have started doing comparative paint jobs, ones from the eighties and my new job from 2017. I did my first one, Frito the thief: and now I'm doing one for a Grenadier thief mage, which I think came in one of their old Grenadier paint kits. So here is the version from this century: to compare him against my original version, painted somewhere between 1980-1986: and then here they are together: In this particular figure I tried to use mostly the same color scheme, with a few exceptions. I changed the color of the flame and tried to create a "vial" hanging on his belt, which I don't know how well it worked, but it's kind of my first attempt at liquids and bottles. With his dart bandolier on his bicep, I gave that a bit of color too. Anyhow, enjoy, I'll have another one done tomorrow, and a few more in the wings, a monk, cleric, and a wererat at the very least...
So, I'm heading to GenCon 50 later this week and have put the final touches on my Prize Support for the D&D Minis Guild's events there. And here they are... The Fire Giantess was only slightly challenging due to the Armor and trying to make it look used but not abused. I've got a lot of compliments on the skirt and I don't remember how I did it! Well, it worked and someone will enjoy it:) The Planetar Angel was an easy mini to improve with a bit of shading, especially the wings. Also, a bit of Bones 3 was sacrificed to this one, too;) A Clay Golem repainted into a Magma Elemental. Used a Happy Seppuku Base Stamp to make a custom Lava base for it! I think it was the Swampland/Marshland stamp. The Tiefling Warlock gave me a massive challenge in her tiny face! Whats-His-Face, 3.5 Iconic Psion, was my chance to fiddle with some freehand Tattoos. So, Hoping to have an enjoyable GenCon. If you are going, have fun too. If not, try not to be envious of those who are and have fun yourselves, too! For everyone, Enjoy yourselves:) GF
I started a thread over in the custom terrain and conversions forum to cover some of my aquatic themed monsters and terrain ( including boats and ships). I also wanted to share my other WIP for some of the figures I am working with or finished. I did most of these conversions for a game called Heroscape over at Heroscapers.com. I like going back to something I did a few years ago and retouch it up, or repaint it or do some additional details. Anything suggestions are always welcomed.
