The skin tone is great and the white hair adds some nice contrast. 

Thanks KruleBear!   She is a pretty simple miniature, really just three components, skin hair and dress so I wanted some colors that would hopefully create some interest.

Awesome as always. You pick some great classics to bring to life.

Some might say my miniature tastes are a bit odd...

they'd probably be right..

 Odd is in, conformity is out ;)

 

Actually for an Evil Witch she's kinda hot, reminds of the witch in the first Conan movie.

The hot witches are the ones you really have to be careful about. Those old hag types are the easy ones to spot, but remember old Conan, he was ready to get a bit of boom chicka boom with that witch, but found out pretty quickly she was bad news.

Tiny, creepy and a beautiful paintjob.

It always astounds me how you can paint such tiny minis so well.

Your colour choices for her really work well together. 

Very nicely done!

 

Plus that’s a great sculpt and pose.

 

If this was a current mini she  would be on my want list for sure.

She looks great - love the contrast of her white hair against the dark skin.

Thank you Warlady!

Not sure how well I do them, but then one is always ones own greatest critic. Thanks!

As luck may have it, and not to plug another brand, but you can get her out there at Iron Wind Metals still.  DF-366 would be the code you'd want to look for or the search word "witch".

Very nice, as always.

 

I also love the Dark Elf Skin triad, although I believe it's been discontinued. I used some when I was painting a pirate as a Negro, and while I unfortunately forget the formula, I was super happy with how his skin tone looked.

If it's been discontinued I will get really, really, really depressed.  I use it for lots of shading different colors as well.

It looks like it's still in the store!

 

I had to go check, because I use the dark elf triad for everything too

I just can join the choir: Great painting again and top colour selection. This looks really good with the dark skin and the white hair. I see some shadows at the white hair by the way. Face is great again as always ::D:

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

      So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties.  Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
       

       
      was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
       
      Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
       
      With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
       
      So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!

      Hello again!
       
      so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979.  Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below.
       
      With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing.  So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress.  The blue blouse I think turned out better, more visually transparent.
       

       
      She's a tad out of focus with this extreme close up, but hopefully this will inspire you to see the rest of her in the links.
       
      So here's Instagram, where you can see her from all angles:
       
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAtNLTBHuZK/
       
      or just where I stuck her main photo in the Lost Mini Wiki:
       
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/4/4e/DF-245_A.JPG
       
      So anyhow, that's the last of the naked miniatures I have in mind for the near future, I promise the rest will have a bit more clothing on, or will be monsters that just don't need clothing!
