I have many Grenadier and some Old Partha's as well as the IronWind Metals and Mirliton versions of a few.

They will see paint...

Another great oldie and another great job!  I love the textures you got on his cloak and leather tunic/gauntlets.  And his face is wonderful - great expression.

Beautiful job on my favorite sculptor’s classic work. Awesomeness.

Thank you Redd!  Yeah, I'm very partial to Julie Guthrie's sculpts, every time I paint another one I like her style even more. One of these days I want to get around to painting some of her old Elfquest figures, that are absolutely beautiful!

You really did justice to the wonderful face - his coloring is perfect. Love the cloak contrast with the shield as well - he looks like he could drop the shield and disappear into the forest if needed!

But while he has that shield in his hands he's a pretty good target...

My wife makes me wear pants. Believe me, I've tried to get out of it.

but also I kind of wondered if he wouldn't actually be wearing pants, but the close tightness of the musculature, plus no "wrinkle" lines that sometimes gets put around joints, made me believe he was indeed a pantless wonder.

      And good evening again!
       
      And quite in contrast to the other figure I just posted, this little thief is quite a bit more sensibly attired, covering herself up relatively decently I'd say.
       
      I think this is also sculpted by Dennis Mize, but not 100%.  
       
      Once again, as per usual, my hardest decision is always colors, so used Terran khaki for her main skin color and kept some cool colors with her wardrobe mostly.
       
      The only thing that didn't really work out like I wanted was that on her boots she had laces going up them, but I just kind of highlighted them a little and didn't do anything with them, because her left leg is bent down so much, even though they were sculpted there I couldn't really reach them very well.  Other than that though pretty happy with how she came out.  
       

       
      She has sort of an odd vest that is open in the front and then ties closed in the back, but at the end of the day that's how she was sculpted, so just obeyed the sculptor!
       
      Once again, may she not be painful upon your eyeballs!

      Hello all,
      another figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha figure, which I think might have been part of their redesigned Partha Imports back in the day.
       
      And of course, she's dressed extremely sensibly, as if she's screaming "you will NOT stab me in the nipple!".   She was fun to do however, nice big face and a simple piece to paint.
       

       
      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.

      Hi all!
      So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera.
       
      This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize.  This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series.
       
      I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful.  The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use.  Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar.
       
      And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk:
       

       
      So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon!
      Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate!
      Mark
