Vintage Harlequin Trouper with Lasgun and Shuriken Pistol

Recommended Posts

It's been ages since I posted on the forums, so I decided I needed to get back to my roots.. As such I got myself one of what I remember as the very first miniature I ever painted, way back in '89!  I haven't decided on all of the colours to use, but one thing I knew from the start was that back then I did the mohawk in all the rainbow, and this one I just had to do the same!

 

Well, thiese are my progress pics so far, I don't want to rush this as it's honestly now a really important mini to me.  Comments and advice for how to proceed will be gladly accepted!

It's not been too long, but here is what further progress I have made.  the pictures are not the best, due to poor lighting I had to use the flash on my phone's camera.

I too am a fan of rainbows lately (working on a rainbow lady I am kinda dubbing Pride Fairy). Looking like this guy is a lot of fun!

He is a lot of fun!  I much prefer GW's older miniatures to the new stuff, too fussy as well as overpriced.

I had that set when I was a kid.  I think I gave it away to a friend who actually played 40K once I painted it...

Sorry for the slow update, but here is the progress I have made. I know it's relatively basic, but until I can get suitable basing materials, I think this is as far as I can take the paint job on the harlequin!  Unless somebody can give me some advice on how best to proceed.

      Mission 5 - "Plant Invasion" has the Birds of Prey going up against Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.  Its the first mission with no Batman to chose from.
       
      I was struggling a bit with this one.  Some of the poses are difficult to paint and I wanted to try and get them as cartoon accurate as I could.  Huntress was particularly difficult because of her outfit and pose.  I'm pretty sure no one I know can come close to mimicking her pose.  I wound up taking these pictures after I glossed them all up, so sorry about that.  I was having some photography difficulty.
       

       
      Poison Ivy's skin was a bit darker green than I was shooting for, but it works.

      Huntress was a pain.  I swear her chest was 90 degrees to her belt buckle and head.  Plus she has a pretty complex outfit.  
       
       
      Batgirl with her black and yellow color scheme.  She has a few good color schemes to chose from, but the black and yellow one has some nice contrast and stands out against the other minis, so that's the one I went with.  
        
       
      Black Canary, who was the easiest to paint.  Of course, I ignored her traditional fishnet stockings.

      Overview EOE Presents a Harlequin Miniatures Production - 36 Classic Oldhammer Dwarves by Kev Adams These wonderful miniatures were commissioned by Dean Edwards for Harlequin Miniatures from Kev Adams back in 1994. We want to bring them back to their original glory. They are being remolded to cast in lead-free pewter by the skillful (ish) hands of John Olsen and his crew of slightly abused staff. Fletcher stood proudly upon the ridge of the mountain and looked down upon the Blood River, its distinctive reddish colour leeching out from the mountain’s massive iron ore reserves. The iron they refined gave his family both strength and wealth but still the Bone Clans attacked. Three times in the last cycle the Goblins had assaulted his homeland and three times they had been driven back. His Spies told him that they believed the Dwarves of the Blood River to be mining for gold rather than iron and they would continue their assaults until they were successful. The Goblins were stupid … and soon they would be dead. 
       
      36 Excellently sculpted Kev Adams Dwarves. A very rare change in design and a rare opportunity to help us bring them back to the gaming table.

      Just finished this for a buddy for tabletop use. Speed painting again, but I wished I had one for myself and I’d done his claws and wing- horns. I can’t find him anywhere, and the only identification was “harlequin”. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
       
      Enjoy!

      Repainted these old miniatures so I could practice some of the skills from the core skill kits. Original paint job was from around 98 when I was a kid and I just slabbed on silver enamel paint over the entire mini. I repainted the Swan knight first and I think I went a little heavy on the highlights. I tried to tone it down a bit on the tower knight and get some contrast on the chainmail. Wish there was some more colors I could have added but unless there are patterns on the armor there's only so much you can do with classic plate armor.  The miniatures themselves are from the old Harlequin Helsinian faction from I think the Raven wargame, with these two from the Helsinian Templars set #2. There is one more that came in the set but I'm missing the shield he came with so I might have to do some alterations to get rid of the little nib on his arm that the shield would attach too. Still after all these years I think the tower heraldry is a little silly.
