Awesome job, I love the colours!

I think it is a kind of voodoo doll thingie he's holding.

I thought of that too a little.  He's got a little skull on his item, but I didn't even see it until I started painting it.  That thing he's holding in his hand might be the voodoo doll's head?

Thoroughly enjoying your series of Shadowrun figures, and this one is no exception!

I'm working on some I think for a while, now and in the near future. They are kind of a fun deviation from fantasy.

I don't think I have seen that Fellow before. Your SPLENDID rendition would have made him memorable. VERY WELL DONE!

This little fellow is one of a set of four, and on the Ral Partha catalogue when you click on it, it's one of those that is a very small image, so hard to see.  Back way in the 80's-90's, when these all originally came out, I don't know how famous/popular they would have been.  I get the feeling that Shadowrun figures were kind of niche figures in a way.

He's like a New Age version of Mr. Mxyzptlk.  He turned out nicely!

Yeah, I thought about that supervillain as I was painting him. Didn’t remember how to spell his name though and still don’t dare write it.  I thought of oranges and purples because of him I think.

      This Tembo spent the last few years half-painted on my shelf of shame. Finally I took the time to finish it. Not my best work, but at least it's off my desk.
       
      I am not really happy with the heavy drybrushing. Also the base was supposed to be reddish brownish but turned out purple. At least the highlights are more or less where I wanted them to be.
       
      I really love this sculpt though. It is an old Ral Partha Mini by my favourite sculptor (sculptress?) Sandra Garrity and it stays very true to the original artwork in the monstrous compendium.
       
      According to Dark Sun lore a Tembo is something like a psychic dog that steals and eats children at night.
      The earrings are a mystery to me. How on earth (Athas?) does the Tembo get to wear earrings? Who helps the Tembo dress?
      The original artwork clearly shows the earrings as well but gives no explanation. I have wondered ever since I saw that picture...
       
      So here it is. Enjoy!
      C&C - as always - very welcome!

      Hello all!
      So here is another Ral Partha piece I just finished. I actually like this miniature a lot, even though the proportions are a little weird. The figure itself is a Houri, which I didn't know before I looked it up, refers to one of the virgins an adherent to Islam would receive after death.  
       
      With her, I tried to do some kind of sheer or transparent fabric, but it really didn't work out like I wanted it to.  One day I'll hunt down a tutorial on how that's supposed to work.  I'm also not 100% satisfied with one of her eyes, but it's such a small field, short of doing it all completely over, it would be a bit rough to patch up, so at the moment I may just leave her as she is.  I actually want to eventually do this gal in a few different skin tones. This version used Terrain Khaki as the base color, but I'd also like to do a tan version as well as a fair skin version.  One of these days perhaps, but now it's on to the next miniature.
       
      Another interesting part about this mini is she was a "resculpt" of an older Citadel piece also of the same name. What I'd really like to do one day is get a hold of the original Citadel mini and paint her up as well.

      But in the meantime, here she is:

      Good evening gents and gentettes,
       
      So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken.
       
      So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead.  I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other things I could have done with him, but calling him done. This one is a classic Ral Partha Julie Guthrie figure from her range "All Things Dark and Dangerous", from back in the eighties.  Most of them you can still end up getting still from Iron Wind, so that is a plus. Anyways, here he is, hope you like him!
