The last of 72 painstaking acquired 1974 vintage Minifig goblins have finally been finished. This batch of a dozen went very quickly as the third batch of them I’ve done this month. I have ambitions to play some D&D as we played in in 1976, but with more and better miniatures, so I based this last crew individually for flexibility. I am tempted to do a grumpy old man routine about how you young people don’t appreciate how good you have things in sculpting and miniatures choice these days, but I won’t. I suspect that everyone does appreciate it. Nevertheless, like clanking away on my manual typewrite is fun, it’s been interesting to see what I could do with these guys, a process made much easier by the use of modern tools such as acrylic paint and a wet palette.
#153 Elf Swordswoman of some sort. Maybe a paladin?
IRL, the Cape has some nice shading going on, but it does not show up in the washed out pictures. All the minis look better when not magnified as in the pictures.
25mm bases. Not my most inspired work.

After yesterday's work on the Bones 4 scenics, I dug around and finished off the first of a set of resin buildings I got from an Apocalypse Miniatures Kickstarter a year or two back:
I also finished basing up a seriously vintage (ca. 1974) Minifig Ent:
And, finally touched up basing and finished off my Gencon speed paints:
From left to right, a Word preliminary round figures, a Reaper preliminary round, a Wyrd final round, and a Reaper final round. (So, 45 minutes on the preliminaries and 60 minutes on the finals...I added names to the two preliminaries; retitled the Word final, and attached the Reaper final to a Frostgrave-themed snow and rock base.)

I figured it was time to work on some Elves. They're definitely the smallest part of my painted collection.
The first batch is all from Reaper Miniatures.
These are the metal ones:
The Drow who snuck in (from the box of Goodwill, no less)
More from Reaper, but this time in Bones:
And the others. Mostly Stonehaven
