@Kuro - Thanks, this is one of the many figures I loved when I saw it for the first time.  She fell into my I'm not sure I can do her justice, like the thread Ub3r started here hits on.

 

After reading the post on when is a mini finished I realized I need to get cracking on some close to completions.  I decided to make some more progress on her by working on the rest of the clack leather.  Hmm, looking at it I might have to go back and rework some color back it in.  I'll see how I feel as I progress.

@knarthex - Thank, sry for the belated reply.

 

I started back up on the reaper Elf I'll call Ami for short.  Basically I began work on her sword sheath and quiver.  The colors were the same for both so I took photo of her back.  I'll have to go back and fix up the cloak in spots, but I've gotten used to that.

More work on Ami.  I managed to get the grip of her sword, her hair and her pouch worked on over the past few days.  Tried to give the pouch a less shiny look as I use the same colors as the leather for the black, just not as high of highlights.  Started working on the bow.  Looking at the photo, I think I need to bring the highlights of the hair up a bit more.  I was struck with an idea for the base, but I will hold off on that till after I get her finished up.

Managed to get some more work done on Ami during the google hang out tonight.  I need to do them more often, I seem to get more work done than a usual session.  I gave her bow some more work and painted up her hands as well as touch up some spots on her skin.  Still need to figure out her leggings.  I wonder if the white works or should I go purple in the tops of the leggings?

 

Here is where she stands at the moment:

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      This is the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Back in the 90s a product of FanPro and nowadays casted by Ral Partha.
      My Kids used this model a lot, so I decided to Paint this next.

      His Mount seemed to be a little small and didnt fit to a grandmaster of a Order of knights. So I Made a Base which should impose a little Hill on the battlefield.

      Good morning Reaperniks!
       
      So I've had this mini painted already about a week, but here in Omaha, it's been mostly kind of cloudy and rainy, so wasn't able to get a decent picture until this morning.
       
      This is Merlyon the Sorcerer, formerly of Thunderbolt Mountain and now being released by Ral Partha Legacy. Pretty fun figure to paint, and it's more akin to that 25 mm of yore:
       

       
      I still have a few more from this range I want to get around to painting. This one also had the eyeholes poked into the eyes, but they worked out this time pretty simply.
      Eyeholes in the owl too!
       
      Anyhoos, please enjoy responsibly!

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
       
      Comments, criticisms and advice as ever more than welcome!

      Took a shot at the ol OSL. 
       
      This model is from my youth that I'd always been afraid to paint because i didn't want to mess it up.  Years later, now I feel like my skills are better and it was worth a shot.  Not only did I take a shot, I did it with a real challenge applied to it.  I was either going to mess it up - or REALLY mess it up.  
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using the colors red and purple seem very wizardly.  Felt like a strong combo and happy with it.
      *  The OSL I did was using a dry brush and sweeping it from the main source and only moving in that direction.  
      *  After the initial area had been 'zoned' I went in and brought up the colors further.  I had a difficult time identifying what would be lit or not.
       
      Misses:
      *  The highlight on the face is way too much.  I wanted a light cast to it, but Iwasn't thinking like sitting in front of the sun.  Help.
      *  What colors to use for bringing up a light source?  I was thinking some kind of fire getting cast away.  I went Orange, Yellow, White, but only hitting white up close and fading to deeper colors farther from the source.
      *  The shading in the cape and undercape - I didn't do anything but feel it does need something.  Does it look strange without it?
       
      If I were to base this one, I'm wondering how I can really knock this light effect out on the base, too.  I may end up just leaving this as is and thinking fondly of it as a first attempt at OSL.  I also think having taken a challenge piece from my childhood and honoring it with something fun to do in my adulthood felt...redeeming.
