Grenadier 2007 Females #2: Fighter

Recommended Posts

Wow! My first minis set (now long gone, :down:)!

 

It's nice to see those old figures again. This one is a good version.

I have a soft spot for the oldies... i love the "feel" even if the sculpts lack the detail we have gotten used to

 

Fantastic paint job - very fun - hell of a lot better than we used to do with testors model paint back in the day!

This is a beautiful figure and you did such a nice job, especially with the face! I hope we're going to see the rest of the miniatures from that box painted up soon!

 

I have another one primed.  I'm even thinking about following the box art for the color scheme!

 

Aaaah nostalgia..

 

I love Grenadier models, still collect them myself.

Not always the best sculpts, but very nice.

The monsters and dragons are among the best though.

 

Good job on such a tiny mini.

 

I've seen the dragons online, but never in person.  So far I haven't pulled the trigger on an auction.

Unfortunately I threw out all of my old testors model paints a few years back.  They all dried out while I was at university.

      I don't usually post my Underworlds stuff here, but I felt this one deserved it.
      Annoyingly, I did a really good job painting her face but you can't see most of it once her fringe is attached.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
       
      Technical notes:

      Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig.
      The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots.
      Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).
