Yuppers. Dem's Fightin' Men, all right. 

I remember when you could look at a D&D mini and tie it to a specific historical era... because all your old D&D fighter minis were basically just historicals...

I wonder if that first one isn't from Superior. Kind of has that feel.  No idea about the second one though.

Found the first one:

 

Superior Knight with Axe and Shield

 

 

 

Since you already got it, I won’t go look, but I recognized that one too…

The result of that is that I still have a strong preference for figures that look plausibly historical (say Anhurians), and particularly for the 10th-12th centuries…

      So I painted this beholder about 30 years ago with Testors enamel.  Then we had a mini storage disaster happen in 1992, a bookshelf made of particle board collapsed and crushed the minis underneath.  This guy was one of the casualties.  I gathered up all the broken eye tentacles and just put the mini in a box to be repaired later.  Well later is now! 
      I glued him together and fixed up all the paint damage while keeping the old paintjob mostly intact.  The pole was bent during the disaster, so now he is going places in a hurry!

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      When I first started perusing these forums I was really taken by this post:
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/42789-figures-from-the-stone-age/?hl=%2Bstone+%2Bage
       
      and have been wanting to do something along those lines, although not those techniques. I have been too focused on individual miniatures lately and this helped me to think in terms of groups. It was fun to think of them as a team with some similar colors but not all painted the same. I also decided to not think too much about it as I was doing it -- just use whatever colors I felt like at any given moment. So sometimes metallics, sometimes NMM. A purple helmet? Hey, why not? Not worrying too much about it, just letting things happen by accident. Kind of shambolic but relaxing. EDIT: Click on the pix for detailed shots. First, some background music:
