So I mentioned working on a few old minis while I was also working on My Women in Horror Tribute... this is the thread for my continued work on those this spring.

The oldest is Dark Sword's Male Fighter with Spear. I got that for a GURPS campaign PC that fizzled out. I had done crazy magic blue eyes, and a very thin layer of green on the cloak, and then it's been sitting on the shelf since 2013. I haven't felt capable of tackling it. it's got tiny eyes.

 

Next I started working on the smaller of the fierce felines, to do some weird approximation of my cat Moose (in my profile photo). That was my first experiment with blue liner on a metal mini. Now I would mix in medium. Anyway, I had a blue and white base coat before it disappeared to the shelf. Here is where this started.

 

I don't remember when I started working on the Whispering Tyrant - it's after the other two. I had some armor and bone basecoats and a green cloak.

 

Mostly I just tried to do more on the green cloaks. I'll upload photos of where things are at after that first session when my phone is done charging.

I did some more work last night too, but I haven't taken pictures yet. I'll probably try to do some painting tonight too. Then a few days of silence.

So I guess I was a bit wrong about how much was done.

Moose had some of the orange on his legs added. The darker bands didn't turn out. I also put a few coats of dusky skin on his fur.

 

Jehan the GURPS PC had base colors added minus the right arm that I noticed after taking photos.

I think they're both looking better.

I've done minimal stuff (brown washes on the bone and leather) on the Whispering Tyrant since the photos I originally posted, but I think I'm posting him to show-off once I've done the base. Since I decided to work on the mini, I've redone the bone, done more layers on the cloak, done more layers of metal/armor, done the entire "vaporous" leg area, and work on the horns.

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Hello forum friends, wanna share with ya'll my most recent painted mini. We have a lot of time atm to hobby hard! :D
      Tryed new tecnics on this bad boy (well new for me) like loaded brush, mixing colors right on the mini etc. Took me way less that layering and glazing, obvious the quality is lower, but still good IMHO.
      The palette of choice is the most natural possible, lot of oranges and browns, but also some punchy color like the blue of the hairs and a bit of red.
      Also used some dry pigments on the base... not good result, but still accetable for tabletop.



      Any C&C is welcome, let me know if you like it.
      Thanks for watching :)
