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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

      Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
       
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
       

       
      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reapervites!
      So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.
       
      With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:
       

       
      Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!
       
      So enjoy!

      Hello everyone, here are some ensemble pictures of my entry in the "Dia de los Muertos" Sugar Skull Painting Contest. I had simply posted a closeup photo of the skull for the contest. This is the Bones version of 77116, Colossal Skeleton sculpted by Jason Wiebe. This Undead is Huge, 120mm tall, almost 5 inches. Notice I repositioned its arms and removed the shrouds that were hanging between its legs.
       
      The other elements on the base are from Reaper Miniatures as well. There are 77528, Graveyard Ruined Fences by Bob Ridolfi, a 77531, Graveyard Fence Post and 77731, Gargoyle Finials also by Bob Ridolfi, a 77538, Gravestone of Sorrow sculpted by Julie Guthrie and one of the 77534, Tombstones sculpted by Kevin Williams. I used roots, birch tree seed hulls and various synthetic mosses to complete the scene. The base is 75mm (3 inches) wide and was 3d printed. Enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperlodytes!
       
      Continuing the work on some old school goodness, more Ral Partha elves from 1976 I think:
       

       
      These are all wood elves, and I've got some more coming, so I'm trying to get them painted in browns, yellows, oranges and greens.
       
      These are their two spearmen.
       
      Just like the Elven Princess, back in the pre-history of miniatures.  Super straight forward, a little awkward, amazing to compare these to Tom Meier's more recent figures!
