This is what I have been calling Lance II, since my original miniature was replaced due to a problem.

I've had him sitting around waiting, and decided to paint him up, and since he didn't come with a base,

I had to create my own base this time (this is a first).

So without a whole lot of commentary;

here is lance, going up the ruined stairs with his mace in hand.

Has been fun, I'm rather delighted with the way this turned out.

(my original base was far too complex, and large, and had to be


Gotta make mistakes to learn !

Oh..Lance II is a 25mm Mini (should call it a "Micro-Mini") !

Once I stop laughing I'll write a serious response.. chuckle....


After the initial disaster I thought, this isn't going to happen.

I had a complex design of making a ruined chapelbroken down wall and window out of the cork,

and painting it,putting lance with his back to it.  Once I got it half made I tried out

lance standing in front, it DIDN'T fit !  All that work had to be torn down.

So I said the heck with it,then after I started looking at it, I thought,

why not put two steps in, that he is fighting his way up !

Then for first time used some flock and I stepped back and Liked it !

Yes, it is a great deal of satisfaction.

Its is a lot of fun, and now I can start using bits and pieces of stuff to make fun basing.

Simplicity is a good thing to remember !

Though that chapel window may show up in a future base (even if it is laying on the floor) !

Basing is like everything, you start out as a completely noob and from there, it is all improvement  :;):


It is a matter of taste; I love being able to incorporate some detail that is unique to the mini, at least by basing...

Ub3r and Willen;

Thank you for your kindness and support !

I'm looking forward to the next Miniature that I base.

I can't imagine NOT basing anymore, unless I don't have a size platform that will

allow me to base the figure. 

You both have had me looking at common things going..oh.. that will look interesting.

That scrap piece of chain, oh yeah !


After years as an engineer, and computer nerd, how great to see something in hand

instead of waiting for years, and seeing nothing for that effort !

Did you say "Chapel Window!?"  ^_^ These are looking great Jay! I think the key is to just keep playing around with the material and see what you can accomplish. I think I'm biting off quite a bit on my current project. LOL! Love what you're doing here!

      Greetings to those of the Clan Reaper!
      I think this has got to be one of the quirkiest figures I've painted, a Chickinasaurus sculpted by Tom Meier from his Sparkle and Savage range, from Theoland! 
      I was a bit confused as to what colors to make him, so thinking about chickens, I tried to imitate a nice brown chicken with a green tail, hopefully he turned out okay:

      a really nice and simple figure to actually paint!

      Hello Reaperlonians!
      Here's one I just finished, a pretty simple miniature, Whaleboy, from Tom Meier's Sparkle and Savage range with Thunderbolt Mountain, that he sculpted for his kids. There's a Squidboy too that I hope to get painted one of these days:

      A very enjoyable figure to paint!

      So hello there all you Reaperlies!
      So here is Squidboy, a figure sculpted by Tom Meier originally for his Thunderbolt Mountain range and currently available out at Ral Partha Legacy.
      The hardest thing with this figure was to figure out what color are squids and eventually made him pink.

      Judging by his t-shirt, I have a feeling he is supposed to be the archenemy of Whaleboy, in a recent posting of mine.
      Anyways, please enjoy!

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!

      Good morning Reaperniks!
      So I've had this mini painted already about a week, but here in Omaha, it's been mostly kind of cloudy and rainy, so wasn't able to get a decent picture until this morning.
      This is Merlyon the Sorcerer, formerly of Thunderbolt Mountain and now being released by Ral Partha Legacy. Pretty fun figure to paint, and it's more akin to that 25 mm of yore:

      I still have a few more from this range I want to get around to painting. This one also had the eyeholes poked into the eyes, but they worked out this time pretty simply.
      Eyeholes in the owl too!
      Anyhoos, please enjoy responsibly!
