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.

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      two more figures from classic Rat Partha, these two are currently called "Beggars" but used to be part of a Children of the Night set that came with a seated old holy voodoo gentleman I painted recently.  Here's the original set:
       

       
      and here are the two beggars:
       

       
      and here is the front of the female beggar, linked for an exposed female mammal part dangling about:
       
      Female Beggar, beware mammal parts!!
       
      I didn't originally mean to give the male beggar a black eye, but his eye was actually just a small little slit, and I was going to leave it as a dark link. So I did the line, then did the black eye, but after that, because I just couldn't resist, I tried to put white over the slit, and even though the white slit kind of took over and made it big enough for an eyeball to go there too, I think it came out okay.
       
      The two figures were pretty simple and they are rather small, being some nice old Dennis Mize 25mm.  If I remember to, I'll grab the quarter comparison shot one of these days.
       
      and just in case you want to see the whole set, I'm sticking the little old drummer voodoo priest here as well:
       

       
      to show the complete set!
       
      So hope you enjoy, thanks for having a look!

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      so I've been wanting to paint some dinosaurs for a while, so here is my first official one, a ceratosaurus, sculpted by Dennis Mize in the early eighties for his Ral Partha range Children of the Night.
       
      As always, the hardest part was to come up with a color scheme as I keep thinking "dinosaurs - green or grey" and don't really want to fall in to that trap at all. I've got more of them so I want to try different color schemes and patterns, maybe some stripes and spots and what not.
       

       
      This is one of the bigger ones I have. He's on a oval base probably for 50mm figures I'm guessing?  Can't actually remember where I found the base, but glad I had it sitting around.
       
      As I look at Mize's figures from this period and with all his dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, I wish he would have made some cavemen as well.  He did some primitive-looking figures later with his Beastmasters, but I would have really liked just some shaggy-haired guys and gals to accompany all these beasts.

      Hi guys,
       
      two more figures that I just finished, really simple paint jobs with limited color palettes and being animals and all. They are both sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the day and came from his Children of the Night series.
       
      I did the Hunting Cat in pure black with some highlights and for the Therapsid, I kind of wanted him pale, and unhealthy looking. He reminds me a little bit of a not-so naked mole rat:
       

       
      Pretty simple and straight-forward figures, didn't take too long to paint. The hunting cat really only took a few hours, and the Therapsid a little bit more because he was three colors.  Anyway, hope you enjoy these little specimens of wildlife!

      And my last figure from this week, a giant rat,  sculpted way long ago by the immortal Julie Guthrie. I should have taken a comparison shot for this one, as he's really small, but you can probably guess because his base is one of those itty bitty bases I think used for 15 mm figures, not sure where I scored them from. They might have come with the familiars in some Stonehaven Kickstarter. 
       
      Being that I couldn't take the Friday after July 4th off, because the rest of my department already had dibs, I ended up taking Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as well as today and I've had some pretty productive painting mornings, so got lots done and this is another one of those figures:
       
      He's slightly out of focus but he's really, really small.. One one of the angles you can see a little piece of flash I couldn't get rid of.
       
      Anyway, enjoy once again! More figures in a few days!

      And another figure from my pretty productive weekend, a were-rat, I think also sculpted by Dennis Mize, though not too sure, this might have been some of the Citadel Import figures that he redesigned.  Anyhow, once again a very simple figure, a naked were-rat running around with a sword, pretty simple and straight forward!
       
      I always seem to end up painting rats grey, maybe in the future, I'll go brown or white....
