So I finished this guy he had been bathed and cleaned of old colors due to some issues...

Anyways since I was bored I decided as a joke to make him a fighter for the sun god of my world. As such I did a freehand rising sun on his cloak. With these pictures I see some touch-ups are needed for spots i missed.

 

I hope he is labeled right as he is hard for me to find to get an exact label beyond the one I put

Blue and yellow are a good color choice, although yellow is a real pain to do well. I also like the idea of the rising sun on his cape.  Straight diagonal lines over an undulating surface can be tough to do.  Some black for his eye slits would help bring them out.  I always give copper a strong brown shading, but I don't know if that's what you're looking for since it can look "dirty" and this guy is supposed to be very clean.  But a little shading would definitely enhance the scale-mail and helmet.

Yeah. I might do a few things when I do the touch-ups I noticed need doing. Also just to let you know as it does look like copper in the picture that is supposed to be Bright Bronze (according the Game Color bottle).

 

I actually decided to do him in this simpler style due to the fact I have been pushing myself on others. He almost never gets used for game these days so I may not seal him and come back to do that stuff later if the mood strikes me.

      Hello and good evening all you Reaper Maniacs!
       
      So here's a few miniatures I've been meaning to paint but just haven't gotten around to them, you know, too many minis, not enough time.  But I did finally get around to these, which are pretty fun,  Squidmen with Goo Guns, sculpted by Tom Meier when he had the company Thunderbolt Mountains.  These are miniatures that his son had designed.  
       

       
       

       
       

       
      and here they are as the actual group/blister pack they come in:
       
       
       
      Anyhoos, quite enjoyable and reasonably simple to paint, hope you guys and gals all enjoy!

      One of the old school figures I still really love.  I started buying them back in the mid 70s, at Len's Hobby Center in Astoria.  This was a more recent acquisition, from some nice lady down in Texas.  The snowy base was a last minute epiphany
       

       

       

       

       

       
      C&C are very welcome.  I'm not too happy with the awkwardness of the cloth - it needed a lot more blending.  I consider it a snapshot of "that time I was focusing on getting more daring with contrast, but without the blending skills to pull it off"!

      and it's day one after the grand Kickstarter Bones 6 and time to pull my eyeballs away from the ever changing Kickstarter screen and back to my version of reality.
       
      So here's one more figure I've got, painted a couple years back, but once again, as it hadn't been released, never showed him off.  Well, he's out and about in the public, so here he is a very small Dwarves Necromancer, sculpted by Dave Summers three or four years back:
       

       
      I really like how his face is half a skull and half a living dwarf. It I would have been thinking years back, I would have maybe painted a side of his beard a lot lighter, but oh well, not going to worry about it now.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Hello everybody on the penultimate day of the Reaper Bones 6 Kickstarter!
       
      So here's another figure I've been sitting on for a while, painted it I think already a couple years back but never posted or showed it off because he wasn't yet available.  Well he was recently released over at Ral Partha Legacy, so it's time to show him off!
       

       
       
      Back in the eighties, if I recall correctly, Tom Meier sculpted a whole bunch of troglodytes, I think with the Ral Partha/Citadel collaboration back then, and when Ral Partha Legacy had one of their Kickstarters, they re-released those older figures.  A little bit later Tom Meier sculpted this little fellow up, a sorcerer/priest/leader for whatever group of trogs you might end up gathering.  He has a pretty long base so he got stuck on one of their mount bases.  
       
      and kind of funny, now that I start thinking about it, I've been using the only other Partha Troglodyte that I've painted as my avatar:
       

       
      I might want to change that, I don't feel like an ugly lizard.......

      I’m away from home (again) with my travel paint kit.  I was experimenting a couple of months back with a Zorn palette of 4 paints.
       

       
      A rogue seemed like the sort of person who might want to be somewhat subdued in color, so I decided that this Ral Partha rogue from The Adventurers range (set 98-013 Female Adventurers) would be a good figure to paint with the Zorn colors to stay in practice.
       

       

       

       
      It wouldn’t hurt to actually read/watch some theory on NMM, but there’s not too much metal on her besides the dagger, so it should pass on the tabletop.  
       
      She is part of an effort to ensure a reasonable selection of PCs for my planned OD&D ampaign revival.
