Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based. She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast. This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.
I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors. Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.
May and June 2019 Challenge
Your challenge is: 9!
Bonus Challenge: The First!
"Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft. Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress. This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.
Bonus Challenge: The Second!
The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.
Skill Challenge: OSL
Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting. If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area. Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.
As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later... I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!
At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice. Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it. Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point
So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties. Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!
so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979. Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below.
With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing. So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress. The blue blouse I think turned out better, more visually transparent.
She's a tad out of focus with this extreme close up, but hopefully this will inspire you to see the rest of her in the links.
So here's Instagram, where you can see her from all angles:
or just where I stuck her main photo in the Lost Mini Wiki:
So anyhow, that's the last of the naked miniatures I have in mind for the near future, I promise the rest will have a bit more clothing on, or will be monsters that just don't need clothing!
