Red Sonja, anyone?

 

I remember helping you out when you were getting started painting. Now, after about a 6 year break,  I am looking up to your figures and hoping I can get my skills (especially blending, which I am most definitely out of practice with) up to the level of your figs.

 

Great job!!!

Yeah, it's been quite a many years since we were hanging out on the previous Iron Wind forum!

Nicely done. I like the way you painted the little brass disks hanging from her belt.

Thanks, each one pretty much individually painted with loving care...

Is that putting it on too thick?

Not at all!

 

Unless you forgot to thin your paints.  (✿◠‿◠)

I've hopefully cured myself of that affliction! That's why I try to only use Reaper Paints nowadays (shameless plug for Reaper on its own site).

Very nice work on her!

Thank you much Chaoswolf, I like this chick, as she's nicely covered up, and has got some good sturdy legs on her. Looks like she's walks a lot and can probably squat a goodly amount of treasure when necessary.

      Hi all!
      So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera.
       
      This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize.  This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series.
       
      I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful.  The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use.  Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar.
       
      And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk:
       

       
      So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon!
      Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate!

      So here is a small little mini that was sculpted way back in 1979, making the sculpt already 40 year old.  It was sculpted by Dennis Size in the old Partha Days and belonged to a game that Partha had produced called the Witch's Cauldron, which pitted adventurers against monsters.  I've never actually played the game some miniatures that I've painted actually came from this game. So here is the witch, to whom the cauldron belonged.  She is a small little figure and crouched down to make her even smaller.  The white hair has actually got some shades and washes in it, but you can't always see them in these photos. Anyhow, enjoy:
       

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with her. I was kind of going for Drow but not Drow. I really like the "Dark Elf" triad for the Drow, but I've seen artwork that shows Drow skin almost more like dark, natural tones, so wanted to give a try for that, plus I'm also painting two other figures with the same skin tones that just flat out have a more African vibe.

      And here's another one I did at the same time as my little witch.
       
      Also a really small figure, seated, and 25mm, sculpted too in 1979, part of Deniss Mize's series "Children of the Night". This little gentleman was originally in set called the "Voodoo Man Set", where he was a little voodoo witch doctor I think, and he had two voodoo zombies with him.
       
      The biggest problem with this guy was his eyes.  He is so incredibly small that after I painted the whites of his eyes, I couldn't get an actual dot in there, so I ended up painting the whole eyeball blue. Not exactly what I wanted, but the eyes were also sculpted in such a way that they were very defined and you really couldn't get away with painting over them and still have them look okay.  So not too sure about how that came out but otherwise, not too disappointed.  I didn't really do much with the base, just glued him on, added some green stuff and painted over it.
       

       
      And to give you guys an idea about this fellow's size (or lack thereof) a comparison shot with a quarter:
       

       
      With him and his little buddy the witch. They got to know each other pretty well whilst sitting on my desk for a week.
