I wanted to do more work on other figures tonight, but I am waiting for some paint to arrive....

I looked at my 20 primed figures, trying to think which ones I had paint to work on, and he kind of bellowed at me to be painted!


So working with my new style of working from the inside out, his skin got done tonight.


I used the Scale 75 Blood and Fire set, working from dark to light, not using the orange or yellow on the skin.

The yellow got used for his scalera, and the inside of his mouth. I didn't think red would work well here, and I thought that if it matched his eyes, it might be his 'inner fire' or some such...


The horns, teeth, and nails were done with SC75 Iroku.

This (Redacted due to family forum rules, but REALLY bad) figure has a SCULPTED pupil, but only in his right eye! I was not going to attempt to push green stuff there, and I just realized that I could have tried the liquid GS, so I just painted SC75 Cantabric Blue for pupils.

Someday I will try to do more than just one color on irises / pupils....

off to a good start.  Do you intend to give him red flames on the arms and head or are you thinking of say green flames for more of a copper flame or Blue maybe?

Was planning on 'normal flames, my last foray into odd colors was pretty awful. I may have to rethink now!

Got a little more don on this guy since I last posted, just not much and no pics...


Greens are Scale 75 Black Forrest and Irati Green, Blue is Tesla Blue.

I also cleaned up the white for the flames with Reaper Brush on Primer.

Still needs a lot more work!


I am trying/ thinking in 'pastel' type colors for his clothes. But I can't really use any reds or yellows because of the flame effect I hope to create... Not sure what color to do his shirt and sash... Though I may do the sash in red as a tie in to the flames...

Sorry about that!

There has been little progress on him, as I started a big push to do some Halloween stuff....


Did the flame base with GW Bad moon Yellow, and a couple coats of Scale 75 Sandalwood on his shirt. Not sure if I am going to keep the sandalwood, or do something different....

So a bit more tonight....

A layer of Scale 75 Spring Green, Another layer of Sandalwood.

His sash with Scale 75 Violet, and the sword blade with Scale 75 Black Metal.

Blocking in some more colors, to get more of an idea of where he is going....

Okay, a little more done...


All paints Scale 75, unless otherwise mentioned...

Another coat of Tesla Blue on the vest, Violet on the Sash.

The hilts and necklace & Chain were done with Necro Gold, and the sword blade another coat of Black Metal. His shirt got a couple of washes with GW Devlin Mud.

Little more done tonight...


Flames done with GW Golden Yellow, then Blazing Orange, and finally Blood Red.


I also went over his horns, teeth, and nails with Scale 75 Iroku.

His shirt got several coats of very thin Scale 75 Birch

Should I add a darker red to the flame tips?


Comments welcome!!!

      Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers,
      So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy.
      I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it.  I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all.  My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure?

      To give a comparison, here is how my camera turned out:

      It's a lot darker.
      Anyhoos, looking for photographic opinions. 
      And to give you an idea of how small this figure it is, here she is in comparison to a US quarter:

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
      Here’s the list of colors I used;

      Good evening all you Reaper Spirits!
      So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure.  Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female.  With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays.

      Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day!

      Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors.  Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both
      First up:  the Panther dragon from Ral Partha.  This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint.  This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear.  This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it.  I finally just broke down and said I am going to paint this!

      Then on the flip side is the Treasure Rocky.  This little tyke has acquired his first hoard and he is insanely protective  and proud.  
      And he should be.  I was looking at the reaper store and he and most of his pals are sold out, again!  These are just a joy to paint and I 
      love painting them.  they are just so entertaining and so full of character that no matter what color you add to them or what you put them in 
      they have to shine!

      Hope you enjoy them!

      Hello Reaperdeepers!
      So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress:

      not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes.  This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole.  As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now.
      Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to paint, hope you enjoy her!
