Awesome paintjob again!

I love the skintone and those weapons are top notch!

 

Great dark armor!

 

Regarding your question I would define that as aged bronze.

Groovy, thanks, I was going for some kind of brass or bronze, just didn't want it to appear as gold, as I didn't think this green guy would have such nice stuff.  I know the metals I did paint look too clean, but I get a bit concerned about  dirtying my metals..

I'd also say bronze, although sometimes I say copper when I mean bronze because some copper paints are more bronze than copper.  Except in Mad Max, where The Bronze and Coppers are the same thing. 

 

Anyway, you did a heck of a great job on him!

Thank you Master Buglips, very much appreciate it!  And as long as you didn't say gold I'm okay with any type of less precious precious metal!.

Excellent work, and the NMMs in question definitely do not read gold, which is what you were after, so win!

 

Thanks much! Now I just need to dirty my silvers.....

And the metal colors in question do not look like gold to me.

Thank you baby Jesus!  At least that I didn't mess up overly..  Metal is just for me the hardest feature of painting, that and OSL, which quite honestly I haven't even tried yet.

Nice. Cool sculpt and I like the skin tone you went with. 

 

....and I would call it oxidized copper!::D:

Thanks very much and thanks for the color confirmation.

 

I've always envisioned half-orcs as kind of half-green, or light green. Probably back from that first Orc's Lair Grenadier box where the cover showed some green and angry orcses...

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime!
       
      So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box.  This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures.  I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted. 
       
      Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon:
       
      and a few close ups of his massive skull:

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors.  Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices.  As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors.  Still haven't done much blue yet.  We'll see what dinosaur comes next.  Anyway, hope you enjoy him!

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      So I had shown off the face of this poor lass a day or two ago, due to the fact that she had a horrible accident with a bottle of red paint and I had to repair her.  She's okay though now, and here is what she looks like in her entirety:
       

       
      with a nice little size comparison photo just for fun. She's small, but not super small, but always nice to have the option to check her size out:
       

       
      and if you are at all interested in seeing her painful plastic surgery, you can check out here:
       
      A face full of blood
       
      Which will show you my temporary chagrin and dismay.  You'll see another miniature I'm posting at more or less the same time, a Ral Partha Allosaurus, that was the culprit of the red paint.
       
      Anyway, another miniature done, chiseling away at my mortal coil!
       
      Next!!!
