I interrupt my other works in progress to bring you this special Project.

But George, those guys are already done, you are thinking....

And you would be right!

I painted these guys when I was in college, back in the early 90s, using the Polly S & Ral Partha AD&D Paint Lines...

And seem to have missed the fact that the guy with the 2 handed mace is wearing some sort of skull cap!


But now, I have 5 more! Thanks to another forumite that was going to use them as weight for the melt tables at R Con, he was kind enough to let me save them from the abyss...

So it will be fun to see what this group will look like, with all of the things I have learned from my fellow forumites in the last 9 months,and using Good brushes, a wet palette, Scale 75 paints, Reaper and Vallejo, and yes, Polly S AD&D 460 Goblin Flesh!


Come back and see when I get more than primer on them!


(They are also Goblin Flesh practice for the Infamy Goblin Chieftain on the Death Chicken....)

Somebody was going to throw those to the fires to be smelted away into newfangled figures?????? Blasphemy.........

Forgive them, for they know not what they do....


The ones who blasphemed are the ones that ordered the molds destroyed.....

The eyes are not perfect, but I don't think I am going to stress about them either....


I love the things I have learned here, such as painting eyes first! I am much more comfortable around eyes and faces compared to before I joined up here.


I did the clean up around the eyes with a W&N Series 7 size 0, and the rest of the flesh, to include the additional coats around the eyes and face, with a Raphael 8404 Size 1.


This time last year, eyes would have been done last, with a W&N size 10/0 brush, with much sweating and cursing....


So thanks for that!


Thanks for looking and commenting!

      And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion,
      So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon.  This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next.  This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties.  Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones.  The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue.  I wanted to originally paint them green to match the crystal in the Shaman's staff, but I didn't think there would be enough contrast between the grass/moss around the stones.

      The little iguana familiar will be next!

      Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.

      Good morning my Reapertonians!
      So recently I've been not only just doing individual figures, but also "sets", figured belonging or previously belonging to blister packs and today is no exception.
      I just finished painting a set of Ral Partha Town Guards, sculpted back in the 90's I think by Jim Johnson.  As I go through a lot of my minis, it's impressive of what a large library of work Mr. Johnson has created.   All this and I know virtually nothing about the guy.
      Anyhoos, being that these are town guards from the same town, I wanted them to all have a similar color schemes so all their shirts got purple amethyst to start out with and their pants are red.  I did want to make sure they all got unique skin tones however, as not to make them too uniform and boring. After seeing these all close up with the merciless camera lens, I see tons of errors that were impossible to pick up with my naked and bespectacled eye, and even with my nerd goggles, I didn't really see certain issues. But alas, once I get to the point of ending, very small chance that I'll be going back to update.  
      As of yet, I haven't put them on bases, but will probably do so in the near future so they don't fall over.  The redhead with the spear is especially a little top-heavy.

      Derek had mentioned in a post about a previous lady giant that I needed to make sure I hit my metals with white.  I always do so, but I'm hoping that these pictures can reflect it visually a little bit more.  Tried not to be overly heavy-handed with white but at least make sure it got in there to be properly represented. 
      And for the spearman's shield on his back, I really had no idea or inspiration of what to do, so I just painted on some white stripes.  Not at all very exciting, but I couldn't invent anything that exciting.
      So there you have them, my last five little mini-babies, enjoy!

      Hello all those in Reaperdom!
      So just finished this figure last night and just got him photographed, an Earth Elemental Lord, sculpted by Jim Johnson. Tried to keep him mostly in earth tones because he's an Earth Elemental Lord:


      His original blister came with a large earth elemental and a little elemental lizard. Going to be painting those in the near future.

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:

      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:

      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!
