I love all the old retro miniatures. I started in 80 with the first "Dungeon Dwellers" set. Hate that i no longer have them. I have looked on eBay for the box hoping ot get it NIB/SW but it's very rare and when found is high $. I'll keep looking though =).

Thanks, everyone.

 

Wish I'd had the good sense to have been into these when they first came around. Alas. And, well, these were a little before my time. I was a wee one, then, I guess. I still think they're cool. Better late than never? Better late than never. ^_^

 

Plus most of these I'm saving from old Testors paint jobs that actually make my learning endeavors here seem downright responsible. I imagine I'd've been an absolute menace on minis back in the 80's, too, without the Internet to tell me what to do. Oy.

Heh, I've got that old wizard mini somewhere at home with no paint on too...  Gotta love these old classics!

      The dwarf is an Eureka 15mm figure (maybe 18mm, can't remember right now). I brought him with other 15mm figures to see if they would fit as brownies, gnomes or dwarves. He fits all of the roles, so now I know where to get some small folk. I actually enjoyed painting him and the 15mm landsknechts (didn't photograph them) a lot more than I expected.
       
      The monk is an old Grenadier Figure, I think you can get him at Mirliton now. I speed painted him using a Zorn Pallet. It works well for anyone who is somber or drab, it can also work well for NMM.
       
      The figures on both sides are from Ground Zero Games, i think they are from the goth set. They can work as cultists, lords or even vampires. 
       
      The maid and the butler are from Wargames Foundry. I really like the sets. The rest is still being painted. With the maid I experimented in painting an impression of some lace or embroidery on her pink skirt. I tried to make the cup she holds look like bone china.

      This picture is closer to the real colour than the one above (thought it is still not perfect, with the monks robes not being as distinct in sections as they are)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.

      These two were mostly done a while ago (along with their buddy Darkrasp). It's just taken me a while to work up the courage to paint the scroll and spellbook and get them off my shelf of shame!

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      Presenting the 'Shroomancer, part of the Gooblapalooza set from Games Workshop who are all Goblin Wizards with different powers. This one alters the reality around him by getting really high on mushrooms, considering his "creations" appear to be attacking him this doesn't seem to be the most reliable of powers.
       
      Really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the super cartoony sculpt just gelled well with the way I paint.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
