Fantastic paintjob. Very clean and much depth. Good job at the face too. Also the colourscheme looks quite good. Very natural look which suits well to this kind of sculpt. Well done!

Thank you Vhaidra, I'm very glad you liked him and welcome back!

Nice work! You know I love these old minis as well, and Julie is indeed a talented sculptor. I have some of her old Elfquest minis - some were stolen, and not many have seen paint, but they are indeed wonderful (if hard to find now that they've been out of production for so long).

 

Since you say you like to see others paint these old figs, here is a link to my old (very old) job. The mini was originally painted in Testor's enamel (yeah, it was that long ago), and then touched up a couple of decades later. Not my best work, but it does show I'd been making progress of some sort. At least I'm happy with the decal I did for the shield.

Morning Madog,

 

Those Elfquest minis I've got most of, need to some day get around to painting them when I have some time!  Love looking at your old page, you've got some fun minis and some great paint jobs back there. Just think if the internet would have existed way back in the heyday of Partha.  There are so many of their older (let's face it, all of it's old) miniatures that I haven't seen with paint on them, the internet would have done wonders. I do what I can to bring these classics back to life, but I'm just one guy with a very limited amount of painting time.  Oh, the life of a miniature-obsessed nerd.....

      Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! 
       
      So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes.  The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use.  As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end up guessing and hope it all ends up matching more or less. One day I'd like to figure out what colors totally clash 1000% and paint with those, but that is for some future miniature surely.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      One thing I really like about her is that besides her staff, she carries no weapons, which makes her a reasonably simple miniature to paint, but also gives you that feeling that she knows she's so bada$$ that she just doesn't need any weapons. I also really like her cowboy boots.  Why a blue dragon head?  No idea, it's what arrived to my brain.
       
      So anyhoos, enjoy!

      It only took me 35+ years to paint these....
       
      Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/
      I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      Hello all you Reapervellians,
       
      So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these.
       
      These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
       
      Nowadays of course, figures are a lot larger, but Dave Summers sculpted these four new dwarves to that old school 25 millimeter scale, which means they are pretty petite. If I remember afterwards I'll snap some kind of comparison photo with some common item. I always forget to do that for some reason.
       
      Anyhoos, here they are:
       

       
      and here's the lady dwarf. I separated her out because I actually have an older version that I did of her years ago as a gift for somebody, and wanted to show it as a comparison.
       
      Here's the one I just painted:

       
      and here she is probably already five or six years earlier:
       

       
      I had her on a much larger base in the original version.
       
      Anyhow, that's all for today folks, enjoy at your leisure!

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.
