Great work! 

 

I love the older, smaller figs, especially Tom's work, although you are absolutely correct about the eyes. Have you ever considered using something like a Micron pen? I like that they can do irises/pupils with just one dot.

 

Great color choices. I remember when you were just getting started. You've come very far since then!

 

BTW, and off topic, I met Tom once at Origins game fair - probably the first one I attended. He was selling some of his Thunder Mountain (current brain fart is preventing me from remembering the name exactly) minis, and I recognized his sculpting work and commented to my son about it. He stood up and showed me his name badge. I said something like "You have a lot of nerve putting that name on your badge!" It took me a moment to realize it was really him, and apologized. I guess I assumed he'd be 10 feet tall and shoot lightning out of his fingers. But I guess that would just have been one of his sculpts doing that, lol.

Hello Madog! It's been a while!

Micron brushes and air brushes would probably make my life a lot easier, but as of yet I'm kind of determined just to stick with brushes.  I've got a really small Windsor and Newton that usually only gets used for eyes and really small work. In that aspect maybe I'm just an old fashioned little old man!

 

I haven't met Tom Meier yet.  It would certainly be nice to some day.  Out on the Ral Partha web site they do have some interviews with him which are kind of interesting.

 

Have you been painting recently? You should display some stuff one of these days or point us to where you have it nowadays!

Luv the supple use of color ... so much with so little ... (little being 3 or 4 times the colors I ever use but ...).

Thanks, wanted a limited pallet, and plus he doesn't have so many dingly danglys  on him that would make me need a lot of different colors.

Looks awesome, she gives off a Viking Shieldmaiden vibe.

Except he's a guy, not a gal!

      Greetings to those of the Clan Reaper!
       
      I think this has got to be one of the quirkiest figures I've painted, a Chickinasaurus sculpted by Tom Meier from his Sparkle and Savage range, from Theoland! 
       
      I was a bit confused as to what colors to make him, so thinking about chickens, I tried to imitate a nice brown chicken with a green tail, hopefully he turned out okay:
       

       
      a really nice and simple figure to actually paint!

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!

      Hello Reaperlonians!
       
      Here's one I just finished, a pretty simple miniature, Whaleboy, from Tom Meier's Sparkle and Savage range with Thunderbolt Mountain, that he sculpted for his kids. There's a Squidboy too that I hope to get painted one of these days:
       

       
      A very enjoyable figure to paint!

      So hello there all you Reaperlies!
       
      So here is Squidboy, a figure sculpted by Tom Meier originally for his Thunderbolt Mountain range and currently available out at Ral Partha Legacy.
       
      The hardest thing with this figure was to figure out what color are squids and eventually made him pink.
       

       
      Judging by his t-shirt, I have a feeling he is supposed to be the archenemy of Whaleboy, in a recent posting of mine.
       
      Anyways, please enjoy!
