Ral Partha Julie Guthrie Archer

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.

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.

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.

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Here are pictures of the third skeletal beast in the series. 77931, Skeletal Manticore sculpted by Julie Guthrie. Painted with Reaper MSP paint and mounted on a 2 inches base.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.

      Good day everyone,
       
      With the dead leaves season comes harvest time. Autumn is also a time for gathering and for reflection. Like the Tuilvilanuue words say "Nilsi hentil kilta anno", it takes four seasons to make a year.
      Here are some pictures of Julie Guthrie awesome 77923 Skeletal Owlbear. I really enjoyed painting this model. The design of the skeletal beasts that Reaper recently produced is stunning. It is an archeological journey in fantasy land.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
       
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
       
      C&C very welcome.
       
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.
