I like how the purple has become more of an old style imperial purple, more pinkish, as used by the Romans onward, and less the modern bluish purple.

Thanks Pingo;

Recovering a palette is really difficult for me.

Once I got that purple I knew it had turned the corner !

Now I am going through cleanups, and was being nagged to death by that horse.

I think I got it sculpted with shadows and highlights now where I'm happy with it !

Beginning to look much much better in my thinking.

Even corrected the horses eyes.

Sigh.

This Miniature has been a "learner"..since it has been two weeks of an uphill slog

with it.  The shift in palette, the change in mood, my dislike of the horse sculpt, and it's over

all pose just did NOT agree with me (Hope I hid that well enough).  About 25 % into it, I decided I

really didn't like it !  I had started it, and it was going to be done (I don't have a shelf of shame,

and I want to keep it that way).  I do have a box of "meh" though.  I am happy with some of the things on here,

if nothing else, just turning it around made a very very good learning experience for me.  Even mistakes are learning;

so I'll just say I learned a lot on Galahad on Horse.

Here are some photos of what I am calling finished now.

      I had a metal mr. Grimm sitting around, so I figured better paint it before the bones version shows up. 
       
      So cold mr. Grimm

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"
