This is my first post here on the forums, but I've been a fan of Reaper for a while now. I've also been painting a while, but only got serious about learning in the last couple years. I've been working at tabletop ready level until I set my sights on these two frost giants. The detail is amazing in these models, so I felt like I had to throw myself into it and produce the best paint job I could. These are the very first pieces I've ever felt were worth considering entering into a competition of any sort. They are currently my best work, and yet I know that I have a long way to go with much to learn. Together they took 5 days to complete, working about 6-8 hours each day while I recover from shoulder surgery.
Some quick notes:
1. The bases are what came with the minis, please disregard them, I plan on following up in this post with custom bases for each of them.
2. The Winter Wolf that belongs to the one with the spear is not done yet. He'll be forthcoming in time.
3. Yes, I modded the spear. I cut off the head and used a spare brush protector tube to connect it to a wood dowel. I used a stain marker on the wood dowel and painted the spear head and tube. This meant that I had to drill out her hand. It was a bit dicey, but it turned out well, I think.
My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.
This is the Wizard from Grenadier’s Wizards box set circa 1980. Most of the minis from the set were called variations like Sorcerer, Illusionist, Magician, and Warlock. But there are also 2 druids and a cleric included.
I painted all the minis from the set in my teens, then wanted to repaint them in my early 20’s so I had my friend sandblast(!) the paint off. That eroded much of the detail. So the detail in the beard, hands, imp, is almost all painted in.
Loved these minis from the Kickstarter. I thought they would be taller but still enjoyed painting them. These are nearly done, I just need to highlight again and then tidy up all the things I ignore on smaller models because they don't show up...
Also need to do a snow effects base.
here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range. Hoping the photos are in proper focus.
I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it. Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
