So here's what I got done this evening:

 

for the satyr just got his base coat of leg on, leather brown. I'll eventually use washes gong into the dirt brown of his hair, then all the way to walnut brown and probably use terran kakhi as highlights up to white.

 

for the elf king, just added eyebrows, and have kept them walnut brown for the moment because:

 

the female elf eyebrows gave me fits.  Of the hour and a half I spent painting tonight, I probably spent over an hour on the eyebrows and I'm still not happy. I also got her hair done, which is blondish.  So that's what I've got until now. I'm trying to paint a little these week night evenings because I think I'm going to be pretty busy this weekend and probably won't have much time to paint.

So some more progress. After almost a week of no painting, I at least got the steel metal done, at least the preliminary work. And as always, need to mention that metals are so hard. They never end up looking like I want them to. Oh, well, after twenty more years, maybe I'll start getting more of a handle on it.

So a bit more work done tonight, the base coat of linen white, then a variety of greens, sea foam, imperial purple, et cetera, with a highlight of white.  I want to kind of do some kind of freehand on the clothing but have no real conceptual idea of what I'd want to put on it.  .

      Hello all you Reaperhemians!
       
      So my last four minis were a blister pack of Ral Partha Shadowrun Tribals, sculpted by Dennis Mize, with a date stamped on the bottom of 1992, so 19 years ago.  I really enjoyed working on these figures.  The first thing was the Native American skin, for which I used the Redstone Triad to get figured out.  I hope it doesn't look too red.   The other thing was all the beads they have on their clothing, for which I gave up and decided to go with the same colors for each bead set, even though I though of doing different colors in the same string of beads but kind of gave that thought up because I didn't want it to take forever.  The other thing I kind of tried was to use a red, white and blue color theme for the accents, with their natural leathers and I threw in a bit of green and yellow.
       

       
       
      So anyways, hope you all enjoy!

      This is the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Back in the 90s a product of FanPro and nowadays casted by Ral Partha.
      My Kids used this model a lot, so I decided to Paint this next.

      His Mount seemed to be a little small and didnt fit to a grandmaster of a Order of knights. So I Made a Base which should impose a little Hill on the battlefield.

      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!

      Took a shot at the ol OSL. 
       
      This model is from my youth that I'd always been afraid to paint because i didn't want to mess it up.  Years later, now I feel like my skills are better and it was worth a shot.  Not only did I take a shot, I did it with a real challenge applied to it.  I was either going to mess it up - or REALLY mess it up.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using the colors red and purple seem very wizardly.  Felt like a strong combo and happy with it.
      *  The OSL I did was using a dry brush and sweeping it from the main source and only moving in that direction.  
      *  After the initial area had been 'zoned' I went in and brought up the colors further.  I had a difficult time identifying what would be lit or not.
       
      Misses:
      *  The highlight on the face is way too much.  I wanted a light cast to it, but Iwasn't thinking like sitting in front of the sun.  Help.
      *  What colors to use for bringing up a light source?  I was thinking some kind of fire getting cast away.  I went Orange, Yellow, White, but only hitting white up close and fading to deeper colors farther from the source.
      *  The shading in the cape and undercape - I didn't do anything but feel it does need something.  Does it look strange without it?
       
      If I were to base this one, I'm wondering how I can really knock this light effect out on the base, too.  I may end up just leaving this as is and thinking fondly of it as a first attempt at OSL.  I also think having taken a challenge piece from my childhood and honoring it with something fun to do in my adulthood felt...redeeming.

      Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things.
      Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
