Every time I see your stuff I want to haul out my vintage stuff and get some paint on it. But your style fits is so perfectly!

 

Great work as always.

Can I ask how you do your static grass?  I can never seem to get mine to stand up like that at all.  

 

I love this, but I like the metals in particular.

To Mr. Wiley:

Thanks so much! Hopefully this serves as inspiration to whip out the oldies and goodies!  Remember that all the classic stuff is just as good as you decide to spend the time to make it look nice!

 

To Mr. Baugi:

Static grass for me is really easy.  I just put the grass in a baggie, put super glue where I want the grass to go, throw the mini in the baggie, cover up the glue, pull him out of the bag, hang him upside down, then turn him over and blow off the rest of the extra grass.  It's always worked really simply.

My first thought when I saw that grass, "wow he's in some serious bush." Great painting on this classic mini.

Problem is we played with our minis...a lot. Which was not kind to the lead. Most of my favorite old guys are bashed into soft lumps now.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
       
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
       
      C&C very welcome.
       
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

      Here's an odd one.  Anyone know of a miniature of someone over-bundled up against the cold?  I have this vision of an elf who has made his home in a frigid land despite being unaccustomed to the weather.  Just wondering if there's a playful model like that out there of a character wearing too many cloaks and scarves.
       
      It's not-essential but I would love the opportunity to bring this weird character to life.
      ----
      As an addendum, if you have suggestions for models that could be easily converted I'm also interested.  Or resources for sculpting scarves and the like.

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!
