Great job!

Love the colours on the Sorceress!

The Mage is very classy!

Thanks Glitterwolf!  The female was the hardest to figure out colors for.  The only real hard part of colors for the male was his shirt, eventually picked green, but I was thinking orange, pink, blue, hard to pick.

Tom Meier turned out so many good figures, and you've certainly done them justice.

A sculpting god amongst men!  I've always loved his work since things he was doing since the Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Dark days, and he has just kept getting more awesome in his sculpting talents.

These are great.  I might have some of these in one of my boxes... 

You should hunt them down and paint them! There is such a nice, relatively large line of Shadowrun figures, but very rarely do I see them painted, would love to see more!  I remember that Pingo has painted some and done some very beautiful work!

Excellent work! That mage would be perfect for Call of Cthulhu as well.

Yeah, a very classic figure, good suit and cane/staff, that could be used in a variety of milieus.

I have a chunk of these awaiting my done.  The line was well done and very varied,  also one of the very few examples to be found of available elf on a motorbike.

 

You did these pieces justice and your choices make them viable in the roaring 20s or the fantastic future.  Nice job!

Fantastic job!  I especially like the female mage - her colors are so bright and vivid, and her skirt is wonderful!

What a nice pair. Really like the mage - good dapper trenchcoat vibe - and the green lipstick on the sorceress is a great touch. Did you match the gem on the cane and the sorceress' flame on purpose - makes it look like they are tapping the same eldritch magic source...

Thank you very much!   The matching green was kind of an afterthought. I actually finished the female about four days before the male and was searching for a color to use on his cane's orb. He already had the green shirt and hatband so I wanted to do green to kind of tie it in and as I used the Reaper Moth Green on the gal, it seemed a nice crossover to tie the two figures together as well.  I really love the Moth Green color for a kind of otherworldly hue

Really nice work on those classic minis!

Thanks Kuro, just trying to give some classic old school minis a bit of love and attention!

very cool, I have some old wasp spirit  shadowrun figures kicking around somewhere, wish there was some modern "licensed" stuff for it until then just got to improvise, but still glad you can get the old Ral stuff for the most part, same cant be said for other old games like Ral's Vamp the masquerade line

      Hello to all the forumites of this fine page!
       
      So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base.
       
      I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one:
       

       
      and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf:
       
      Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords
       
      If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis
       
      And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf:
       
      Water Elemental
       
      Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman!
       
      So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days.  For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors?  In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest.  
       
      The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently.  
       
      Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about.  I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future.  And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
      "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!
