Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords. I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
So here she is:
In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use. I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work. Such is the curse of the painter....
Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure. One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before. She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off. No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.
The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames. I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
What is this sorcery?!
Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

Hello sentient painting creatures!
So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy. The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties. Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!
Hello all and good evening!
Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days.
Fun figure, pretty straightforward. His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch!
Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!
