He is an elegant miniature, BEAUTIFULLY painted. Your brushwork & color choices are WONDERFUL...the green fire seems to fit an Elf Wizard perfectly. VERY WELL DONE!

Beautiful - very expressive face. I like the simplicity of the figure and how your rich colors and blending make them pop.

Thank you Glitterwolf! I've always believed that the eyes on a miniature will either make or break him.  If you can get some decent eyes, just about everything else after that is easy!

Thanks Malefactus, once I chose the shirt color, the autumn colors just followed suit.  One of these days I'll do some spell effect with natural flame, but I seem to have a thing for green fire.

Thanks Iridil!  Some of the nice thing with lots of the older figures is that they are relatively simple and straightforward.  Don't get me wrong, I like figures with "stuff" on them too, but simpler figures make for quicker painting, and there seems to be an elegance with the bare minimum of their character class, like this one, instead of having a thousand little bags, straps, cinches, et cetera covering them.

Do it! Do the OSL! I recently did a green magic OSL effect and would be happy to offer my thoughts if you like.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!

      Not my best work, I struggled in quite a few places (particularly with the fish) so a lot of it has ended up being painted rather basically, even by my standards.
      But I did get it finished, so I'll count this as a partial victory.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
