And knowing how big those figures are (or, not big, to be more accurate), that’s doubly amazing.

Exquisite work on the face and hair! Great stuff. 

Thanks Rigel! I think I got the face pretty nicely, and she's small but she has a round, expressive face with plenty of room to paint!

She looks great, and your colors are wonderful!

Thanks Warlady, I was kind of worried about the glove colors, but whatever color I would have made them I'm sure I would have doubted my choice afterwards.

Lovely work on the face. It really draws you in and defines the character.

Thank you very much Lostraven, I'm just glad she didn't come out cross-eyed!

Yeah, back in the day when 25mm really meant something....

as someone else mentioned, that much detail at this size always floors me.  Her Wood framed wicker Quiver really got my attention (as well as the face). Really, really nice

The wicker was already sculpted in to the quiver, so I just had to make sure to try to pull the detail out of it instead of just lather it with one coat, because I didn't want to obscure the detail. It's amazing that sculpts of these age are so detailed!

Wonderful paintjob on a great figure! I have this one WIP myself, and have named her and given her a place in my D&D campaign as an NPC, which I don't do that often as I'm painting.

      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!

      These guys are really tiny, from back in the days when the word "miniature" really meant something.  They are based on 0.5" washers.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      Your panther has made a mess of my carpet! Come clean it up!

      The second mini I finished while a bunch a y'all were at Reapercon. 
       
      Very tabletop quality, but there it is. I'll do more to the base once I have a few more things done, I'll batch it out. 
      I love this mini; Julie Guthrie made it super gross!
