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.

      Hello all,
       
      just finished this one up, a Ral Partha Children of the Night Megalosaurus. I told myself I was going to stay away from greens and grey, which is of course what this one ended up being.  I threw some pink highlights into his mouth and throat, which started making me think a bit about the Joker.  
       
      This guys is a dinosaur so he's a pretty hefty piece of metal.  I should probably photograph some day a normal sized person to give a comparison. He's on an oval base, no idea how big it's supposed to be. 
       
      Anyway, hope 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!

      I've got this mini in the legend of drizzt board game last december and I just hated it right off the bat. The weird pose, lack of details, undefined face, I could go on... Also, something that was quite striking about it was the lack of feminine detalis and a kind of a masculine look of the female ranger  It looked to me more like a man dressed as a female ranger, and I found that quite funny and promising!
       

       
      As I've thought more about it, it reminded me of Doris from "Sherk" and Okama characters from "One Piece", which I both love!
       


       
      So those characters inspired me to paint Catti in a similar fashion, which I believe gave the mini much needed character. I like how it turned out and I think she will make an interesting pc or npc in our dnd campaign! 
      Enjoy!

      So this is the test figure for my orc warband for frostgrave and mordhein (WIP thread here)
       
      I like the palette so far and I'm happy how this guy turned out. I will post other minis as I paint them. Cheers!
