The bases are just cornmeal painted and some static grass.  As a general rule I decorate the base enough so that it's not a black piece of plastic, but by the time I get done with a figure I'm way too done with it to want to spend too much more time on the base. That and I don't want to draw attention too much from the figure itself.

At the hobby store we used to frequent when I was a kid, called Star Realm, if you only wanted one of a set of figures that were the same, let's say six Ral Partha Elves with Swords or whatever, he'd open the package, you could buy one of the six and he'd put the rest in a case so other people could also buy what they needed less than the whole kit of six.  Those were the good old days, and I loved looking through his little clear case.

Thanks all for the kind words!  For me, armor is the hardest thing to do so when I all of the sudden find myself confronted with having to do four figures all heavily armored it's a bit daunting.  And of course, my next four are going to be probably dwarves as well and all of them are set and ready to go to battle, so full of metal....

Two of them, the one with the e mattock and the huge sword, are from their Fantasy Collector Series from the eighties.  The dwarf with the horned helmet and axe is slightly larger and was sculpted towards the end of Tom Meier's Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night Series as a "Black Prince's Black Dwarf", and the dwarf with the sword and shield came from some kind of command group that I think is in some old catalogue somewhere but I've have to hunt him down to know where he belongs for sure.  These four, and a bunch of other ones, are going to get rereleased in the next Ral Partha Chaos War Kickstarter..

      Greetings to those of the Clan Reaper!
      I think this has got to be one of the quirkiest figures I've painted, a Chickinasaurus sculpted by Tom Meier from his Sparkle and Savage range, from Theoland! 
      I was a bit confused as to what colors to make him, so thinking about chickens, I tried to imitate a nice brown chicken with a green tail, hopefully he turned out okay:

      a really nice and simple figure to actually paint!

      Hello Reaperlonians!
      Here's one I just finished, a pretty simple miniature, Whaleboy, from Tom Meier's Sparkle and Savage range with Thunderbolt Mountain, that he sculpted for his kids. There's a Squidboy too that I hope to get painted one of these days:

      A very enjoyable figure to paint!

      So hello there all you Reaperlies!
      So here is Squidboy, a figure sculpted by Tom Meier originally for his Thunderbolt Mountain range and currently available out at Ral Partha Legacy.
      The hardest thing with this figure was to figure out what color are squids and eventually made him pink.

      Judging by his t-shirt, I have a feeling he is supposed to be the archenemy of Whaleboy, in a recent posting of mine.
      Anyways, please enjoy!

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!
