So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair. I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
I really like how the photos came out. I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind. So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:
here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range. Hoping the photos are in proper focus.
I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it. Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime!
So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box. This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures. I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted.
Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon:
and a few close ups of his massive skull:
I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors. Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices. As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors. Still haven't done much blue yet. We'll see what dinosaur comes next. Anyway, hope you enjoy him!
