1ST Painted Miniature Fantasy Figure...

Recommended Posts

Since my current postings deal with older figures (vintage, if you will) and display my very early figure painting attempts (which began about 18 months or so ago)...I decided to post the (very 1st fantasy miniature that I ever painted).

 

He is a chaos lord/knight from the old Citadel figures...I have no SKU data on him...This was/is the 1st miniature gaming piece I painted for my RPG group. Prior to using metal miniature figures (I used Steve Jackson card figures for both the adventure group and all enemy)...He is finished in a heavy gloss finish so that he wears well during all the heavy game play handling.

 

The figure was named (by me) The Dark Lord " Vazar of Darth "...all of you can guess who the figure was based on.

He finds my lack of faith disturbing. Awesome model. Super old school Chaos Warrior for Warhammer fantasy. Looks great, especially considering it's your first. I love that your early painting attempts are from 18 months ago. Mine were almost 30 YEARS ago. You young'uns and your rock music and your painting skillz...

Really appreciate your comments of liking the piece. I got a great smile in your calling me (you young'uns)...I know not your age (not listed on your profile)...you know mine (73); so by your statement I am to assume that you are older (if so, I send my great respects to you sir). No rock music though (classical is my taste) and as far as the painting skillz (I was born with the talent(s) that I may have in this area). Best regards...catdancer!

Hadn't checked your profile for age. Didn't even know I could do that. I meant "young'un" more in respect to your involvement in the hobby. While I'm half your age, I have been doing this for almost my entire life. I always think I should be better at it. I hope you continue to enjoy the hobby and keep sharing your work.

That's a nicely painted piece, especially for a first effort. I have a huge soft spot for Chaos Warriors of that era, I'm sad that I don't have many at all of my own.

      I love the sculpt of the king (I think Eureka calls him a chieftain, but he is too kingly for that). There is an emergency! His castle has been attacked! He didn't even have time to prepare. So  his underpants, helmet and cloak are all he is wearing. He looks regal!
       
      The Novice of Sigmar is fun sculpt. At least she has a chest-plate, even if the design has some flaws. Her weapon is also terribly designed, the surface area is too large! And why she chose those stupid shoulder-guards I have no idea. But she is a fun sculpt, the cloth is nice and flowy and she has different materials that you can have fun painting.

      Greetings!
       
      FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's.
       
      I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up!
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Hello again guys,
       
      so recently been a bit inspired to paint some old miniatures, ones that were nice and dark lead.  Part of the reason for this is I want to get these painted before they actually disintegrate or get a lot of lead rot, so I'm going to be hopefully keep painting the few ones that I have that are really old, just to get a protective cover of paint on them, and because let's face it, they're basically just cool!
       
      So today I've got two dwarves from an old Citadel boxed set, whose name I don't remember but it was probably something like Court of the Dwarf King. Later when I get inspired I'll hunt it down on the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So they are two dwarves, a dwarf queen and a dwarf wizard/vizier/councilor or something of that nature.  Took the photos yesterday afternoon and it was a little cloudy so the back view of the queen is little dark, but everything else worked out pretty well
       

       
      with the dwarf queen, I thought she had like a little mole under her mouth, which is why there is that odd line, because it might have actually just been an irregularity in the cast.
       
      Anyhoos, hopefully you guys enjoy these little gems from the past, Games Workshoppe before it was Games Workshoppe.  As I find time, I'm going to be painting other great oldies as well, apart from all the Partha stuff I normally paint.

      So here is my latest foray into the past, a miniature that I've had for years and years and years and in a burst of inspiration finally got around to painting her. I've got a few other Citadel minis on my desk to as well that I hope to get to little by little.
       
      So she had a squished nose, so I had to rebuilt it with a bit of green stuff, but otherwise, she's the same mini that I've had lying around since the eighties:
       

       
      Hope you enjoy, more to come!

      So browsing MM for their BF sale & I come across this from Citadel/GW
       

       
      All the title says is Citadel Colour Spray Stick & there is no description, other then
       
      Manf: Games Workshop
      Contents:
      1 Spray Stick
      1 Detachable Handle
      50 Elastic Bands
       
      Instantly I thought it was rubber band shooter, but it got me to look at GW's website to see what purpose this actually does: 
       

       
      Ie something I can accomplish with double stick tape & a piece of cardboard......sigh.
