So, since I was procrastinating on making my base for Rasia I decided to start prepping some more figures to paint.     After see 72Moonglum paint up some old partha's I decided to work on another o

Tonight I decided to finish up the eyes on these guys.  Decided to keep the same eye color on them all, green.  I also gave the skin a lining wash.   Here is the RP Elf eyes all a green:   Next

Added a bit more highlighting to the shirt.  Then I mixed up the pants colors.  Basically took the base coat and gradually added in maggot white with 4 layers of highlight.  Then I shadowed in the pan

It's like taking a course in Elf Evolution 101, with the Elven equivelents of Neandrathal, Cro-Magnon, and modern day Elves. :)

While not my thoughts exactly, it was the general idea.  Though, the eyes got smaller as they got younger?

 

good choice of figures and love the beginning base coat, nice and light and elfy.

Thanks, your work inspired to finally break out the older two.  Yep, I thought lighter skin tone for these minis would nice.

 

Nice selection, the Chainmail one is very interesting looking.

Indeed,  that was one of the reasons I got it back in the day.  Well that and they were on sale at my LGS.  I have several Chainmail figures: Several centaurs, a drow, a couple more elves, and a Minotaur.  I had though back last year to make a WIP of all my minotaur mini's and call it "STAMPEDE"  Maybe someday.

 

This will be a great WIP! So many ways to go on these selections!

Thanks.  I'm thinking springtime colors.  Mostly because I wanted to try out my SC 75 greens.  Though I was thinking of giving them some crazy hair colors.

 

Cool minis all.

Indeed.  The RP has a weapon swap with a space marine knife.  I didn't like the look the knife of the original.

All I managed to get accomplished on this group was the whites of their eyes.  Other's have recomened brown liner to line the eyes.  With a darker skin tone I might typically agree.  But I feel it looks to dark for my taste.  So I decided to line the eyes with a mix of RMS Bloodstain Red and their original skin color.  So far it look OK to me.

Next up we have the chainmail elf eyeing her target:

Finally we have the reaper elf.  She has a bow to be assembled later.  So I painted up her eyes.  Then I couldn't stop myself so I painted up her face.  Guess she is kinda miffed that she doesn't have her bow.  Someday I think I need to research 2d art on painting facial expressions to try enhance existing expressions.

They're looking great and good call on not using a darker color on the eyes. I think the brown liner would have been too dark.

Thanks

 

I love how you start to get lifelike results early in these WIPs with the simplest of steps. Well, and the eyes, of course, which are not simple at all but bring the characters alive.

Thanks, I like to start with the face for just that reason.  Eyes are getting easier.  Note: easier, not easy (-5 is warmer than -10 but still not warm to me)

 

Agreed with Pingo, small steps can have a big impact. Looking forward to this WIP progressing!

Hope I don't disappoint.  More to follow.  Not much time to paint the last 2 days.  I did managed to squeeze in some time tonight.  Face and skin on the other 2 are finished.  Photo's to follow in a bit.

      Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! 
       
      So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes.  The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use.  As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end up guessing and hope it all ends up matching more or less. One day I'd like to figure out what colors totally clash 1000% and paint with those, but that is for some future miniature surely.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      One thing I really like about her is that besides her staff, she carries no weapons, which makes her a reasonably simple miniature to paint, but also gives you that feeling that she knows she's so bada$$ that she just doesn't need any weapons. I also really like her cowboy boots.  Why a blue dragon head?  No idea, it's what arrived to my brain.
       
      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      It only took me 35+ years to paint these....
       
      Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/
      I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow

      Here is a tabletop elven trio. I am satified they will help fill out the ranks of my eerie forest setting...
       
      I liked these better than the other wizkids elves I painted - mostly because the cloaks seemed less rediculously billowy. Pretty decent depth to details too.They seem very elvy to me. s

      Hello all you Reapervellians,
       
      So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these.
       
      These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
       
      Nowadays of course, figures are a lot larger, but Dave Summers sculpted these four new dwarves to that old school 25 millimeter scale, which means they are pretty petite. If I remember afterwards I'll snap some kind of comparison photo with some common item. I always forget to do that for some reason.
       
      Anyhoos, here they are:
       

       
      and here's the lady dwarf. I separated her out because I actually have an older version that I did of her years ago as a gift for somebody, and wanted to show it as a comparison.
       
      Here's the one I just painted:

       
      and here she is probably already five or six years earlier:
       

       
      I had her on a much larger base in the original version.
       
      Anyhow, that's all for today folks, enjoy at your leisure!

      Hello everyone, I completed this Wizards of the Coast model today. This is a 88714, Goblin Scout of the Drazen's Horde faction. It's a Chainmail Miniatures model that was sculpted by Jerzy Montwill. The base is 20mm in diameter and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
