And what the heck, as long as I'm gushing on about how nice this is, just want to point out that this is a beautiful example of an older miniature (old school if you will) being very nicely painted.  I know there's just tons of people with old stuff hanging around in their houses/basements/dungeons/closets, you should take a break from all your new fangled Bones minis (even though they are very nice in their own right) and spend a number of hours relaxing whilst painting some beautiful, old figure from yesteryear. 

 

Okay, getting off my soap box, stopped flogging my dead horse....

...you totally freehanded that Eye of Horus on the shield to mock everyone who has trouble painting eyes, didn't you. :lol:

 

Nooooooo, never.  The thought didn't even cross my mind... :devil:

 

Wow, this one is just beautiful, I love the skin tone and the gold on the shield came out really nicely.  I painted this one a long time ago, but way before I started using Reaper paints and basing miniatures.

And I should probably mention too I love her helmet and spear head!

:lol:  It's been awhile since I was triple posted.  Yes, there are some nice old minis out there.  Some of them are inexpensive as well.

 

Nice work. Keep showing the classics please.

 

I'm feeling left out of the DSM WIP thread so I've opened one of the packs to play along.  I'll still be coming back to these from time to time and plan to finish the entire set this year.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.

      One of last year's limited release figures that I painted during the summer.  She has the right amount of detail, I spent some time trying to do NMM on her armor and weapon.  Felt that the pose was a bit dull and static, and her face is odd.  Liked how the green part of her cloak came out, not so happy with the yellow, need to practice more,

      Another one from August. From the Greek Odyssey expansion in B5.  She has just enough detail to be interesting without being overwhelming to paint. Wish the casting had been a little sharper. I had to outline a lot to make things stand out.

      I'm not so sure this is a show off as I'm not happy with the final result. The bones have way to much contrast in my opinion.  What do you all think?

      I previously backed the RBJ "Yippers and Squealers" KS (dog-faced kobolds, and pig-faced orcs) and the KS went fine. The Squealers will be offered in this KS as well. I'm only posting these pledges to show all the miniatures, and other pledges are available, including one with "everything".
