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!

      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

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...

      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      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!

      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!
