Ral Partha Demon with Battle Axe and Victim

So finally got this done, have this wandering around on my WIP topic. 

 

Hopefully you enjoy, the base is just a very basic one, and I didn't do much more than cover it with corn meal, and then used weathered stone, with some washes, then highlighted to white.

 

I have to say I really enjoy this figure on so many levels.  I was kind of intimidated by it being large, with a victim, but once I started painting it, the detail was just so nice. One of my favorite parts is the snake that is coming out of his pinky finger and twisting through the skull on his belt buckle.  I also really like the victim himself.  On his scabbard he's got oddly a nice little flower on it, so he's probably a really sensitive barbarian deep at heart, or maybe a botanist barbarian, who will ever know? 

 

I did add blood to the axe coming out of that delightful decapitated head, but didn't want to do too much.  I thought about adding blood to the dagger the barbarian is plunging into the demon's arm, but got to thinking. If it's not a magical blade, it very well might not even be able to hurt the demon, so he could poke at it all he wanted to with no effect.

 

Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperloogans!
       
      So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress.  I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her.  She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base.  She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
       
      So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish. 
      Hopefully she turned out okay!

      Good evening Reaperhoochagans!
       
      So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights
       
      So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!
       
      EDIT:  adding a link to the original set of fairies:

      Good evening Reapertons!
       
      So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986.  She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook.  Anyway, showing off new to old:
       

       
      and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
       

       
      and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
       

       
      and here they are all together:
       

       
      So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme.  There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief.   One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing.  Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!

      Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!
