I love the sculpt of the king (I think Eureka calls him a chieftain, but he is too kingly for that). There is an emergency! His castle has been attacked! He didn't even have time to prepare. So his underpants, helmet and cloak are all he is wearing. He looks regal!
The Novice of Sigmar is fun sculpt. At least she has a chest-plate, even if the design has some flaws. Her weapon is also terribly designed, the surface area is too large! And why she chose those stupid shoulder-guards I have no idea. But she is a fun sculpt, the cloth is nice and flowy and she has different materials that you can have fun painting.
Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.
FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's.
I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up!
Thanks for looking.
These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.
Hello again guys,
so recently been a bit inspired to paint some old miniatures, ones that were nice and dark lead. Part of the reason for this is I want to get these painted before they actually disintegrate or get a lot of lead rot, so I'm going to be hopefully keep painting the few ones that I have that are really old, just to get a protective cover of paint on them, and because let's face it, they're basically just cool!
So today I've got two dwarves from an old Citadel boxed set, whose name I don't remember but it was probably something like Court of the Dwarf King. Later when I get inspired I'll hunt it down on the Lost Mini Wiki.
So they are two dwarves, a dwarf queen and a dwarf wizard/vizier/councilor or something of that nature. Took the photos yesterday afternoon and it was a little cloudy so the back view of the queen is little dark, but everything else worked out pretty well
with the dwarf queen, I thought she had like a little mole under her mouth, which is why there is that odd line, because it might have actually just been an irregularity in the cast.
Anyhoos, hopefully you guys enjoy these little gems from the past, Games Workshoppe before it was Games Workshoppe. As I find time, I'm going to be painting other great oldies as well, apart from all the Partha stuff I normally paint.
So here is my latest foray into the past, a miniature that I've had for years and years and years and in a burst of inspiration finally got around to painting her. I've got a few other Citadel minis on my desk to as well that I hope to get to little by little.
So she had a squished nose, so I had to rebuilt it with a bit of green stuff, but otherwise, she's the same mini that I've had lying around since the eighties:
Hope you enjoy, more to come!
