Finished a Reaper mini at last (actually there will be a few this month) 02514 Kang, Half-Orc.

I've painted him up for use as a ranger, barbarian or fighter and my youngest helped with selection of base decoration. :)

Updated with better pictures, that make it easier to see the colours etc.

Finally got some painting done today and finished 02253: Water Elemental.

 

The elemental has a base colour of Marine Teal. This was washed with a Marine Teal & Brilliant Blue for the lower half and then Marine Teal and Pale Green for the top half while the lower half was wet to allow blending. Then details were painted with Pure White, then more highlights were added with Pale Green with a touch of Ashen Blue and Pure White. Finally the edges were painted with Pure White and there was a light drybrush of Pearl White was applied to the model to give it some shine.

      Hello all you Reaperloogans!
       
      So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress.  I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her.  She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base.  She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
       
      So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish. 
      Hopefully she turned out okay!

      Good evening Reaperhoochagans!
       
      So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights
       
      So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!
       
      EDIT:  adding a link to the original set of fairies:

      This was from a couple months ago; I was pretty unsure what I wanted to do with it. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, particularly given that I think I only had three different colors of blue paint in bottles, and two of them were pretty similar.

      Watch out this time of year for this fellow, he'll come riding in with the blizzards!

      Good evening Reapertons!
       
      So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986.  She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook.  Anyway, showing off new to old:
       

       
      and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
       

       
      and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
       

       
      and here they are all together:
       

       
      So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme.  There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief.   One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing.  Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!

      Catching a bit of a 1970's version of A Christmas Carol while channel hopping today reminded me that I still had these gals to paint:-
       

       
      I was planning on extending Presents base with putty but mine had dried up (Plus I'm not sure I would've had much success reproducing that wooden plank look anyways), so she's going to look a little weird (Although she already looks a little weird in her pirate cosplay).
      Just waiting on them to dry, and then, hopefully, I can start painting them tomorrow.
       
      Won't get them finished by Christmas, I'll probably still be working on them well into January, but I should be able to finish them eventually.
