Thanks for your comments everyone, I'm glad you like it. She'll eventually be part of an impromptu encounter in an upcoming D&D game I will host.

He is a BEAUTIFULLY painted creation & a fine example of the benefits of daily flossing. Your choice of colors & brushwork are as OUTSTANDING as ever. VERY WELL DONE!

When I saw "Trooper" I envisioned a big, ugly Guy in a Smokey The Bear hat with mirrored sunglasses like a NY State Trooper with fangs.

      Hello all,
      another figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha figure, which I think might have been part of their redesigned Partha Imports back in the day.
       
      And of course, she's dressed extremely sensibly, as if she's screaming "you will NOT stab me in the nipple!".   She was fun to do however, nice big face and a simple piece to paint.
       

       
      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      So here is a small little mini that was sculpted way back in 1979, making the sculpt already 40 year old.  It was sculpted by Dennis Size in the old Partha Days and belonged to a game that Partha had produced called the Witch's Cauldron, which pitted adventurers against monsters.  I've never actually played the game some miniatures that I've painted actually came from this game. So here is the witch, to whom the cauldron belonged.  She is a small little figure and crouched down to make her even smaller.  The white hair has actually got some shades and washes in it, but you can't always see them in these photos. Anyhow, enjoy:
       

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with her. I was kind of going for Drow but not Drow. I really like the "Dark Elf" triad for the Drow, but I've seen artwork that shows Drow skin almost more like dark, natural tones, so wanted to give a try for that, plus I'm also painting two other figures with the same skin tones that just flat out have a more African vibe.

      And here's another one I did at the same time as my little witch.
       
      Also a really small figure, seated, and 25mm, sculpted too in 1979, part of Deniss Mize's series "Children of the Night". This little gentleman was originally in set called the "Voodoo Man Set", where he was a little voodoo witch doctor I think, and he had two voodoo zombies with him.
       
      The biggest problem with this guy was his eyes.  He is so incredibly small that after I painted the whites of his eyes, I couldn't get an actual dot in there, so I ended up painting the whole eyeball blue. Not exactly what I wanted, but the eyes were also sculpted in such a way that they were very defined and you really couldn't get away with painting over them and still have them look okay.  So not too sure about how that came out but otherwise, not too disappointed.  I didn't really do much with the base, just glued him on, added some green stuff and painted over it.
       

       
      And to give you guys an idea about this fellow's size (or lack thereof) a comparison shot with a quarter:
       

       
      With him and his little buddy the witch. They got to know each other pretty well whilst sitting on my desk for a week.

      So here is the third figure from the set I was working on recently, a female fighter or ranger with staff. Nowadays on the Ral Partha's site, they just call her a fighter, but she originally belonged  to a three piece blister pack of Rangers from Julie Guthrie's "All Things Dark and Dangerous" figure line.
       

       
      Being she was a ranger originally, quite the opposite of the Ranger Archer I just finished a few days ago, I tried to give her a bit more natural colors.  And here is then the group together, and the original image I found from an old catalogue:
       

       
      So anyhow, fun figure to paint, hope you all enjoy!

      Could have made the flames a little more contrasty for sure. More lighter yellows and whites. It was taking too long though, needed to wrap it up. Any c&c appreciated.
