Larry Elmore dragon lass from Ral Partha

Recommended Posts

Nicely done.

I really like your choice of colors, and some very VERY excellent layering in Red !

I should have this figure somewhere in metal mountain because I got all the S&S minis from IWM... but I don't recognize her so now I'm wondering if I missed one.  

 

Great job on her!

Red is one of those odd and colors to paint. It's just about the only color I don't highlight to white, usually just to yellow or a yellow/white combination.

Just went out to the Lost Mini WIki, she  is actually part of "Reflections of Myth", not the Silver and Steel boxes.

Y'know, usually I like wearing more when I handle my dragon. No matter how good of behavior he has on a given day, he ends up wiggling around and scratching me. 

 

She's a brave lass! I really like the red butt-cover. It does well for adding contrast to the figure.

Great job, she looks awesome!

 

@Cyradis she just got out of bed, applied make-up, put on a shirt when the Dragon Puppy began to cry for attention, quickly she stepped into her boots ad got into the garden to get him inside.

The neighbour had the time of his life..

Thanks very much, we need to cover her butt after all, so it should be with something attractive and color coordinated!

Very nice paint job on her!

The little dragon being green actually works pretty well, I think.

Thanks, that was the hardest color choice of the whole mini!

Excellent work! Figuring out color is often the hardest part for me too. I think the red came out very nicely and the makeup as well. Such tiny details on that model.

In the good old days when 25 mm actually meant something!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Ok, this is a mini that I made as a joke for a friend of mine. He GMs a lot of games, and has always been a bit fascinated by the fact that the Half Dragon template can be added to almost any kind of creature. Including ones that reproduce by dividing.
      Truly, the biology of dragons is a wonder.
      Anyway, he got to completely wreck the party with this Half Black Dragon Gelatinous Cube.
      I made it by combining some parts from an invisible dragon and gelatinous cube minis (both from Reaper’s Bones line). I used water effect for gap filling and a bit of sculpting, and added a little color with some thinned down paints. I wanted to give the impression that it picks up debris from the floor as it moves along.
      Except for the eyes, which are totally opaque so that they can show up. Seriously, I think they’re the only part that really shows up at all in the pictures, but you get the idea.


      In an unrelated project for the same friend, I found a really strange bit that I think is supposed to be the head of a dragon, but seriously looks like a half dragon spider. So that got painted too.
      Man, dragons really make some poor choices.

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!
