Ever since my grandson saw the movie (300)...he has asked me to paint him a spartan miniature...he also plays on an international flag football team that are called the (Spartans). So this piece was painted for him and mounted on a varnished walnut display base...He requested that I keep it simple with no trees, flowers, etc...just the spartan warrior with helm, shield and spear (like the characters in the movie).

 

FIGURE...Ral Partha (Titan # 01-108)...circa 1985-86.

Another beautiful job! I really like the colors and am very intrigued the how the breastplate came out as that nice subdued gray.

 

The old twenty five millimeter Ral Partha stuff is really very small compared to the figures sculpted today, which I think helped make them simpler and more streamlined. There's an old Ral Partha fire giant, sculpted way back in probably the late, late seventies that is hardly any bigger than a good sized Reaper warrior-type figure today. I'm working on some elves right now that are at that 25 mm level and there's not a lot of extra dingly dangly on them, but all that old Ral Partha stuff is really great!

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 
       

       
      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
       
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”
       

       
      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

      The finished version of the mini WiP I was sharing earlier today.
       
      I tried to use washes and played with basing this time around.
       
      Any suggestions would be great as I don't feel as proud for this one as I did the Dark Chronicler Astrid I did back on May.

      This one is next in line.  He needs a better base.  
       




       
      This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base.  And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading.  I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit.  Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam.  After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on.  No pin.

      Presenting Tirinha Fallowheart, a Dreadmere faction mini made by Reaper.
       
      Didn't put much effort into this one, it's a nice mini but I think mine is a bit miscast (her details are a little soft and mushy in places).
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
