This is a whole new ballgame for me.

I switched over to brush on primer, and had my socks blown off.

I didn't realize how much of a difference that primer would make in the crispness of the Mini's edges.

Its shocking how much detail is NOT covered over.  Makes me look at my former stuff and get a bit upset.

I'll just move forward on these.


I'm looking forward to painting this one, and see if I can capitalize on the crispness of the sculpt.

Going out on the edge :)


Here is the Queen Guenevere (Standing).

glad to see you attempting the damsel in distress finally!   Those Knights need something to do.  :upside:



Sir Lionel!


Do you recall the other night that I distinctly said you might

Serve as my escort at the next town fair?

Well, I'm afraid there's someone who I must invite in place of you

Someone who plainly is beyond compare

That Frenchman's power is more tremendous than I have e'er seen anywhere

And when a man is that tremendous

He, by right, should take me to the fair




Your majesty, let me tilt with him and smite him!

Don't refuse me so abruptly, I implore!

Oh, give me the opportunity to fight him

And Gaul will be divided once more!



You'll bash and thrash him?



I'll smash and mash him.



You'll give him trouble?



He will be rubble.



A mighty whack?



His skull will crack.





Then you may take me to the fair

I really love the gusto you go at the mini's.  Watching you post your wip's and see your progress helps motivate me, in a good way.


Oh, and yes I've found brush on primer helps me prepaint and get a feel for the mini.

Thank You So Much Silvervane !!!!!!!!!!

I love the challenge of making something that is dull, hard, and grey, and turning it into a living thing.

I have friends that say that they are waiting for the miniature to step off its base and talk to them. :)

The highest complement I can imagine. 

Thank you for you kind words, and your work is also magical... lets spur each other on !

Jay Bows.

Julie Andrews was incandescent, just incandescent as Guenevere. (My husband courted me playing show tunes from the Broadway plays he had seen growing up.)


I'm glad you like brush-on primer so. Good luck with the painting, moving forward!

Hope he wasn't courting you with the tunes from Man Of La Mancha !  "I'm only thinking of him, I'm only thinking of him, In my body its well know, there is NOT One Selfish Bone"..ROFL.

I saw that play in its third week and almost croaked laughing.. !

I lived an hour from NYC, and had access to tickets cheap ! (or Free) !

Think Hair on Broadway, and a performance of Parabola were my favorite performances in NYC !

I was really blessed !

Out of curiosity.. what time is it there?

It is 2123 (or 9:23 pm).



I usually picture you starting a new project in the AM with a fresh coffee or two.    Welcome to the night owl side of things.. 22:29 here!


Prepping after waiting for two days for the primer, and matte varnish delivery.  Then cleanup of four miniatures.

So, now that I have cleaned, glued, primed, and decided on what order I am doing things, time to clean the desk,and get

ready to rock and roll.  Another ten minutes and I will have a cleaned out work area, refreshed and ready to go tomorrow.

      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!

      So hello all you Reaperphonics!  
      So finished this one recently.  I'd done the other Flying Pink Unicorn, and wanted a slightly different version of pink, so here's what I came up with.  This one, like the other fairy ballerinas, was sculpted by Tom Meier inspired by a design from his daughter with his company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and now sold by Ral Partha Legacy.  Lots of different pictures because it's mini with basically lots angles, not just front and back, hope not too many photos:

      They are the last of my ballerina fairies that I had from Ral Partha Legacy, going to have to now move on to something different I guess, maybe some Reaper Bones.....

      Hello all you Reaperoloques, anxiously waiting for your Kickstarter boxes to arrive at your doors!
      I got my notice and hopefully I'll be seeing a big, beautiful box of plastic joy this Wednesday!  But in the meantime, just plugging away painting...
      So I just finished these two Thunderbolt Mountain minis, and if you recall last time, I took y last photos with my new iPhone.  I considered doing this again with these two minis, but took photos with my camera and then with the iPhone, and the iPhone photos were too brash or stark, so I'm using the camera photos instead.
      First Morgan le Fay:

      and then the Lady in Waiting:

      Both of these are available again for sale on Ral Partha Legacy's site, and actually they both come in the foot and mounted versions, but way back when, when I bought these, I didn't get the mounted versions, just their standing forms. 
      Enjoyed doing both of them very much.  The only odd thing again were they had those eyes with recesses for the irises, which I don't really like, but at least in this case worked out I think okay.  I actually did a base walnut brown cover for the eyes and then when I went over them in white, the recesses remained unpainted and brown, so they turned out okay.  I think for the future though, with more of these recessed eyeballs I'll actually paint the color in that section and then go over them again with white. 
      Another thing to mention is these are true 25 mm figures, when that used to mean something, so these are very small.  
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy and these can momentarily distract you whilst you wait for your boxes to arrive!
      Happy Independence Day for those gringos that celebrate it, and Happy Sunday for those that don't!

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.

      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.

      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.

      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.
