Very old school ... looks like she could be half viking settler half native of newfoundland ... 

Yeah, her skin tone and hair color give a little bit of a native American flavor!

I like the way you painted her gloves. Looks like buckskin. 

Thanks, she had so many different leather pieces on her and I tried to at least start them with different colors. The gloves actually started as terra khaki

I love that face!


Also nice to see she is reasonably armored.


Thanks Glitterwolf! For a small figure, she did have some nice, expressive and larger eyes with which to work.


Yeah, she has a sturdy shirt of mail to cover her well instead of a chain bikini!

Very nice work on her!


Out of curiosity, do you remove the integral bases from these old figures, or use putty to blend them into the bigger base you put them on?

Thanks much Chaoswolf!


To satisfy that curiosity:  Any figure that comes with an integral base, I leave it on the base, glue it onto usually a circular plastic base, then I fill the rest of it up with green stuff, let it dry at least three or four hours, then superglue corn meal in some spots to represent dirt and some grass.


I'm a really lazy painter, so to chop off a base and do crazy things with it would essentially be a lot of work. Maybe with Bones figures it'd be easy, but with metal I've found a much quicker and efficient route.  I used to actually never use bases before I found the Reaper forum. If you look at my older figures (you can hunt them down in my little link on my signature) I used to just glue them on to a balsa wood base and that was it. I'd paint the balsa wood either brown or black and I was done.

      Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers,
      So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy.
      I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it.  I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all.  My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure?

      To give a comparison, here is how my camera turned out:

      It's a lot darker.
      Anyhoos, looking for photographic opinions. 
      And to give you an idea of how small this figure it is, here she is in comparison to a US quarter:

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
      Here’s the list of colors I used;

      Good evening all you Reaper Spirits!
      So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure.  Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female.  With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays.

      Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day!

      This interesting mini is the Earthdawn Female Orc Beastmaster on Turtle from Hearthbreaker (SKU 323).  Not sure I like the red hair, especially in the picture it is quite bright, it is a bit more muted in real life.

      This is 3 of the elves from the Grenadier Elves Sinister box set (SKU 3002).  The rest are on my painting desk, in various stages of completion.  The rightmost  swordsman had a miscast, so he got a spider shield from my bit box.  He was originally dual wielding.  From the back you can tell that his hand is not really there.
