Great job again!

And together they're a great group!

Thanks Glitterwolf!  Remember back in the day when they used to sell blisters of three or four minis with the same theme?  Ah, those were the days (waxes nostalgic)….

 There's also a Rawcliffe pewter version of her, which was listed as Maid Marion...

I didn’t know that, even though I knew that Ral Partha worked together with Rawcliffe on a number of things.  This is one of the figures they also used for their “Lost Worlds” line, which was some kind of miniature game.

Found the book cover on line, I would have had a color guide had I only thought to look!3E6948B9-DFB0-4BAF-8402-94F051B269C7.jpeg.b4b5ed7f8a56aba78ee179ae7c32dd93.jpeg

 From what I've observed, the decision process behind which Partha figures were redone in pewter by Rawcliffe was... mildly eccentric? :rolleyes:

The larger stuff like dragons, 54mm wizards, polar bear chariot, sure... But the regular-sized 25mm figures included everything from bad-elf looking Chaos Wars fighters and high-level wizards to some incredibly generic-looking  low-level "adventurers" that could be background extras in anything from Robin Hood to Tolkien.

Yeah, no idea how they decided what Rawcliffe would produce and sell. I tried to check out on the Lost Mini Wiki and they have a number of references, but very few photos.

Great trio of oldies! Really like her yellow shirt, almost looks like a very soft leather.

Thanks Iridil! Yellow isn’t hard to pull off but it takes quite a many quotes. After I put on so many coats and then give up, I then start washing with palomino gold which covers the yellow pretty well and then darker washes afterwards.

Beautiful job and a great set!

Thank you Warlady! It’s fun to paint one of these old blister packs!

They are awesome all together. I really like the expression on her face and the attention you give to detail like her eyebrows. Again, you did a beautiful work all around.

Thanks Metalchaos! 

They are small minis but the faces are large enough and the eyes are sculpted well enough that they are not overly difficult to paint. My problem has always been that I usually get one eye and eyebrow perfect (usually the left as I look at the mini) but then have a problem with the right side. I’m left-handed so other people maybe have the same problem but on the opposite side?

      Another one from August. From the Greek Odyssey expansion in B5.  She has just enough detail to be interesting without being overwhelming to paint. Wish the casting had been a little sharper. I had to outline a lot to make things stand out.

      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!
