Great bunch! Nice skins and I really like the coloring on the armor of the one with the pole arm (1st pic on the right)

they look fantastic, really like the shading and the range of colors on the skin as well as the clothing and armor, excellent palette matching

 

are these still available to purchase or are they OOP?

Cool poses. Great paintjob. For me the skintone are too bright, but this my taste of orcish skin.

 

Some of them certainly photographed much brighter than they look in real life.  Probably a result of the different washes I used on them.  Having said that, I did make a conscious choice to make them pretty green.  I'm exploring different skin tones as I do multiple orc/monster groups.

I'm not sure if Iron Winds is still producing them.  Like I said, though, I always catch them at a con, usually Gen Con, and they've always had them in their mix and match bins.  I know Ral Partha Europe is still selling them. That's what helped me figure out their origin and what parts I needed to replace.

 

The nice thing about them is that even though they're 20+ years old, size wise they stand up to the bigger 25mm-28mm models they sell these days

I understand that. My choice is more to olive green. But your Orcs are quite cool. No matter what skintone they have :poke:

Excellent!!! Wow, this looks fantastic. I love the limited palette you used here and also the clean painting style as well as the depth you achieved here. Great! Thumbs up.

Thanks, i checked out  Iron wind and they sell a couple that look similar in style, might have ot grab the set of 15 for $40. That will be enough ORc's to last a lifetime and pass down to grand kids LOL

   in case your interested, here's one they show close up, not painted  as well as yours.

Sculpted by Tom Meier , i think i see a resemblance to yours no?  They definitely unique to anything else I've seen, and that appeals to me

I'm pretty sure those are a different line of orcs.  Good looking ones, nonetheless.  The ones I painted have derpier faces.  That guy looks meaner.  Ha.

I really love these muted tones you paint these with! 

With those other orcs, those are sculpts from Tom Meier and are very nice but a good deal smaller than the ones you painted.

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!

      Hello again Reaperlings!
       
      So here is the other figure I finished this morning from their Shadowrun Range, a Jim Johnson Female Bounty Hunter with Machine Gun.
       
      With this gal, hard to decide on colors. Do I go strictly drab and military greens and browns or do I add some color into it? I opted for color:
       

       
      I'm hoping/guessing that she's got some kind of radio/cell phone/walkie talkie in her other hand, but hard to know for sure. I think Shadowrun probably had a bunch of different technologies, not at all familiar with the game, but really do like the figures.  
       
      Once again, enjoy, hope you like!

      Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
       
      So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
       
      The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords.  I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
       
      So here she is:

       
      In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use.  I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work.  Such is the curse of the painter....
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure.  One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before.  She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off.  No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.
