48 hours later and Demogorgon is proving more resistant than anticipated to the Simple Green.

Took a brush to him and most of the 30 year old paint came off thought, but not all of it.

Time to put him back in for another 48 hour session and see if I can get the last of it.

Got most of it off, but there's still a little bit of green left in a few crevices.  Unsure whether or not I should scrape it with something harder than a toothbrush to try and get it out or just let it be.

you can always try a dental pick.

 

But if it is not heavy/filling the crevice it probably would not matter once you prime the mini.

I agree.

      The unpainted mini from the D&D Stranger Things Beginner set. The one they give you is more tan/taupe, and in the series it seems to be, but I went more green/olive.

      Getting all, I have just been painting up a couple of teams for my friends to play blood bowl again, I haven't played for years since I was in the Waterbowl league, it was fun to paint up some fantasy again been doing a lot of sci-fi-fi and Modern military recently so it was a welcome change and has spurred me on to dig out the box with all my unpainted teams in it and get one done each month.
       
      This was the progress of the Wood Elf team which are called the 'Bare Arsed Chiefs'


      Nearly finished just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       The other team team I was doing at the same time was a norse one same stage just needs the bases/numbering doing 



       
       
      Been fun as I said I'll get some pictures of my other teams done which are Skaven, Undead (with werewolves), halfings, Vampire Counts, Amazon
       
      Raided my bits box to add some Team Score, turn & re-roll markers
       


       
      Just deciding which team to do next .. any requests

      Another old mini that I painted at the same time as the Taer. Initially I just primed him white and called it good, but since I was painting the Taer, I figured he'd be a good one to paint along side them since he would have a similar color scheme. He was also equally a pain the %&^$#@ elf to photograph, didn't matter if I was using a neutral background or my dungeon tiles. he would inevitably be washed out and or blurry. while trying to experiment I got a decent picture of him on top of my trash can out side.
       

      This guy is very much based on his art in the Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume One. Drawn by one of my favorite D&D artists Tony Diterlizzi.
      Hmm blown up it's still a little blurry now. I don't get it, the S8 is supposed to have an awesome camera, but it seemed like I was getting better pictures with my wife's old Ipad. I really thought I had finally gotten a picture of him that actually worked. Might try and fix this later as well.

      "One of my favourite range of figures ever was Citadel's 1980's licensed "Lord Of The Rings" minis. I have finally decided to get all the miniatures I own painted up (over time) & try to acquire the ones which are missing from my collection (& paint them up too!)". Here is my next completed mini - Gandalf.
       
      It's actually part of a blister of 3 minis (ME1 - Fellowship Heroes) which also includes Strider & Frodo.
       
      He was quite nice to paint overall - not too complicated either.

      I love the sculpting on this figure - grim yet regal. To make him look like he is roaming the wilds, I added some dirt onto the bottom of his cloak & boots by drybrushing a light brown followed by a dark brown nearest the bottom.
