I do remember that Little Guy; I don't remember ever seeing him as BEAUTIFULLY painted as your creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Nice, I get a Leprechaun feel about this guy,

Sure it's a Dwarf?

 

Maybe his mother went searching for a pot of gold? huh? huh? ***wink wink, notch notch, say no more...****

Thanks, everyone, I'm glad you like him!

That's quite the compliment, thank you!

The top of his hat is about equal to sir Forscale's shield.

 

I can get a quick picture a little later on, if you want.

Yes, please. I'm very curious as to his scale next to "modern" figures.

Here you go:

 

Sir Forscale, old Grenadier Dwarf, Reaper Dwarf on slotta base

post-12095-0-80027900-1453248291_thumb.jpg

 

Same group; Reaper Dwarf without slotta base.

post-12095-0-17954900-1453248310_thumb.jpg

 

As you can see, Reaper's dwarf is a few mm's higher with the attached broccoli base on top of the slotta base,and approximately the same height without it.

 

 

So, he's either a very short dwarf, or (as I'm going to use him), a gnome.

      This is the Wizard from Grenadier’s Wizards box set circa 1980. Most of the minis from the set were called variations like Sorcerer, Illusionist, Magician, and Warlock. But there are also 2 druids and a cleric included. 
       
      I painted all the minis from the set in my teens, then wanted to repaint them in my early 20’s so I had my friend sandblast(!) the paint off. That eroded much of the detail. So the detail in the beard, hands, imp, is almost all painted in.

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      These HeartBreaker minis were the first ones I bought that weren't part of a boardgame, or Warhammer starter set. Years ago I had a fair sized Undead army, and thru the magic of Simple Green, the time has come to rebuild and repaint that army. 

      Later they were reinforced with these friendly fellows from Grenadier.

      This time around, I built them a unit tray from balsa wood, insulation foam, and wood putty.

      This the bonus figure that came in Grenadier Dragon Lords 9602 Red Dragon II, circa 1989.  See my work on the Dragon here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82205-grenadier-9602-red-dragon-ii/
       
      This guy mimics the dragon’s colors, but not very well. Overall a pretty plain mini. Im terrible with reds. Damned colorblindness...
