Good job as always.

 

The way you paint faces on these little minis is awesome!

I like the colours, clearly he hides in fields of flowers to pelt his enemies with arrows.

You have a real flair for the tiny Old Partha pieces; I do hope you have an annual eye exam. The Archer painted up WONDERFULLY with a BEAUTIFULLY expressive face. VERY WELL DONE!

He’s an alternative colored ranger, so he can lie down in a field of lavender and when you are least expecting, he pulls up from the field to put an arrow in your hind parts, kind of like Rambo emerging from mud....

Ooh, I like the lavender shirt!  Nice non-traditional colors on this one.

Thank you very much Warlady!

Thank you Malefactus for your concern about my visual health.  Eye exam regularly, at the ripe old age of 51, I’m sporting multi-focal lenses so that I can actually see what I’m painting I’ve had to resort now for years a good set of cheap nerd goggles, a magnifying headset that I’ve gotten historically super cheaply from Harbor Freight, an economy hardware store.

I become a fan of your Ral Partha paintjobs. First: It is cool to see this old sculpts painted again so lovely and second I like your painting style a lot. Very clean, good depth, nice and smooth blending work and on top great faces. Thumbs up!!!

Thank you Vhaidra, I really enjoy painting these miniatures. There are so many of these floating around in the nerdiverse that I wish more people would paint them, especially seeing how talented painters aré nowadays. People are mostly attracted to the latest and greatest though it seems, not so much for things sculpted 30-40 years ago.

Classic, and nicely painted.

Thank you very much Klarg1, he's certainly old enough to be classic!

I know what you mean. I also still own a lot of old sculpts and consider to paint a couple of them. Especially Ral Partha produced a lot of unique and intresting sculpts. Looking forward to your next paintjobs ::D:

You really should paint a few old pieces, they are always great fun. You're a wonderful painter, you'd certainly bring out all the old classic detail!

Thanks, but this has to wait. I have approximately 7 or even 9 wips at the moment (I actually stopped counting them) :lol: I just started too many paintjobs, it is time that I seriously try to finish at least a couple of them first and in my case this take ages. But later there is a chance.

No problem, I’m patient.

      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!
