This is the last mini finished in December 2020, mini number 79 of the year. I hit 97 mini if I count large minis as 2 each. Not too shabby, my goal was to finish 50.
So this mini is the Female Halfling II from the Julie Guthrie series 2 from Grenadier (SKU 8145). She is the smallest mini I have painted in a long time, so I am super happy with her face.
So I dug an old mini out of the bottom of my box of forgotten lead - the 1989 Firbolg by Ral Partha. This classic figure deserved better than being lost for a generation so I decided to paint it up and take a few photos on the way.
It was in fine shape except for the broken / missing handle and pommel for the sword, so I started with a repair job - pin it to win it.
A quick test of my sculpting skills, I used milliput to add a new handle over the pin. I gave the whole model a new prime with vallejo surface primer through my airbrush. Overall, not too bad and one quick mold line removal later and a touch up prime and it was ready for some color.
Time for getting some basic color on the model. I started with reaper golden shadow for the skin. It's a nice warm base to paint over, so I was pretty hopeful that it would provide the right base for the reaper warrior flesh I planned on using later.
Next up. some shadow. I used vallejo model air burnt umber for the shadows and for a first coat of the leather bits.
This is the Chasme from the AD&D Planescape line from Ral Partha (SKU 11-649). Painted with the new mermaid scale paint from the pre-order Brinewind set. Painted over Coal Black it makes great shiny insect carapace, and over white, awesome looking insect wings. I also had fun making a lava river for this creepy demon critter.
Getting all, I have just been painting up a couple of teams for my friends to play blood bowl again, I haven't played for years since I was in the Waterbowl league, it was fun to paint up some fantasy again been doing a lot of sci-fi-fi and Modern military recently so it was a welcome change and has spurred me on to dig out the box with all my unpainted teams in it and get one done each month.
This was the progress of the Wood Elf team which are called the 'Bare Arsed Chiefs'
Nearly finished just needs the bases/numbering doing
The other team team I was doing at the same time was a norse one same stage just needs the bases/numbering doing
Been fun as I said I'll get some pictures of my other teams done which are Skaven, Undead (with werewolves), halfings, Vampire Counts, Amazon
Raided my bits box to add some Team Score, turn & re-roll markers
Just deciding which team to do next .. any requests
