That's a wonderful figure. The subdued colours are splendidly set off by the bright gold of the arm-band. Definitely put this on display somewhere.

That's a pretty figure.  My Grenadier knowledge is weak, I got into miniatures when they were waning and there wasn't as much of their product in the game stores.  She's a neat gem, I may look for one of my own.

She is quite beautiful!  Her skin is so delicately frosty, and I love her face.

Absolutely----I think you have created my mew preference for frost kin skin tones. Very well done.

Thanks so much, the skin started out as ghost white, then down to some blues and dark elf triad, and then again up to white.

Thank you!  I almost considered doing the armband a silver color and only using the earrings as the contrast, but then wanted a bit more of a pop.  She'll end up going in my display case with all my other things!

It's really one of my favorite figures ever, that and a female satyr that John Dennett also sculpted.  When we were little we did both Grenadier and Partha, so when I got back into minis, I started collecting both again, through the miracle of Ebay.  This chick is different in a slightly different version, without the antlers, from Mirliton in Italy.  There were two versions of her, one with antlers and another one they sold in a blister pack that didn't have them, but a headband that's flatter.

Thanks!  I've always thought of frost giants as almost white with blue and purply tints, but with light/white hair to match.  I remember the Monster Manual talked about blonde or yellow hair for frost giants. That just didn't seem quite right.

Stunning but subtle I love it 

 

 

Thanks very much, wanted her to kind of blend into a snowy backdrop!

Thank you Limey72, really appreciate it!
 

and I just checked, Master Buglips, Mirliton calls her a "Frost Princess".

I agree completely, at least about this being one of my favorite figures!

Thank you much!  the base color of the skin was ghost white, and then blue and dark elf skin washes, while the clothing was linen white, with more brownish washes.

Excellent work!

I recently found out that a good portion of the Grenadier Giant's Club, including this piece, began as a re-branding of a failed larger-scale display line.  It makes sense, considering the huge variations in design on some of them.

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice

      Hi guys,
       
      two more figures that I just finished, really simple paint jobs with limited color palettes and being animals and all. They are both sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the day and came from his Children of the Night series.
       
      I did the Hunting Cat in pure black with some highlights and for the Therapsid, I kind of wanted him pale, and unhealthy looking. He reminds me a little bit of a not-so naked mole rat:
       

       
      Pretty simple and straight-forward figures, didn't take too long to paint. The hunting cat really only took a few hours, and the Therapsid a little bit more because he was three colors.  Anyway, hope you enjoy these little specimens of wildlife!

      And my last figure from this week, a giant rat,  sculpted way long ago by the immortal Julie Guthrie. I should have taken a comparison shot for this one, as he's really small, but you can probably guess because his base is one of those itty bitty bases I think used for 15 mm figures, not sure where I scored them from. They might have come with the familiars in some Stonehaven Kickstarter. 
       
      Being that I couldn't take the Friday after July 4th off, because the rest of my department already had dibs, I ended up taking Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as well as today and I've had some pretty productive painting mornings, so got lots done and this is another one of those figures:
       
      He's slightly out of focus but he's really, really small.. One one of the angles you can see a little piece of flash I couldn't get rid of.
       
      Anyway, enjoy once again! More figures in a few days!

      And another figure from my pretty productive weekend, a were-rat, I think also sculpted by Dennis Mize, though not too sure, this might have been some of the Citadel Import figures that he redesigned.  Anyhow, once again a very simple figure, a naked were-rat running around with a sword, pretty simple and straight forward!
       
      I always seem to end up painting rats grey, maybe in the future, I'll go brown or white....

      I haven’t posted in a while.  Been mostly painting terrain for the past 8 months or so.  Finally getting back to some minis.
       
      So I picked up the Wizkids frost giant last fall to paint up as Harashnag for my Storm Kings Thunder campaign.  He had been sitting around for a while and I finally got a chance to get him painted.  
       
      The right arm actually wasn’t glued in very well so I was able to paint with it out of the way for the most part.  As usual with these Wizkids pre-primes, I didn’t clean up any mold lines though I probably should have this time around.  C&C welcome!
