I really like it. Do I detect some red in the cloak shadows? He has a really unique facial expression.

Thanks Darcsraar, you do indeed see red in the cloak shadows.  There is some in the legging as well.

 

Oh yeah daddy-O, great job to see him finished!

Thanks, it has been your work on all those RP figures you have been posting that inspired me to pick this guy up and finish him.

 

Awesome paint job!

 

Great job on the base as well.

Thanks Ub3r, I've been trying to up my basing game.  Its a slow process.

This figure is from an interesting stage in Tom Meier's sculpting development. His clothing is so ripply!

 

I like the deft way you've shown all the modelling without being pedantic about it. The soft, broad highlights take advantage of every turning of form. His face is full of character, and just a little unhealthy-looking. And I like the soft polished steel effect on the metals.

Excellent work on him!

 

And  kudos on the base as well!

Thanks.  There is as much to basing as painting, and I feel quite behind in my basing skills.

Thanks,  I wanted to keep the model simple as he was supposed to be a young adventurer.

Seems like one of those situations where the painting out-awesomes  the mini.  He looks great.

 

Tom has definitely improved since then, but there's so much charm in these old minis.

 

Also, he has quite the schnoz.

Thanks, He does have a bit of large nose for the classical ideal for an elf doesn't he.  Yes Tom has definitely improved since these, and giving these a good paintjob helps give them back some charm.

I recently lucked into a Stage 2 version of this character (same schnoz, face, hair and cap) and at first I thought he was a portrait of Vlad Tepes! :lol:

Lol, now you made me go find my stage 2 so I can see if I can see the resemblance.  Yup, now I can't unsee it.

      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.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      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!
