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".

Great job on her face - it must be tiny! Wonderful skin tones and I like the white hair choice!

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:

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      two more figures from classic Rat Partha, these two are currently called "Beggars" but used to be part of a Children of the Night set that came with a seated old holy voodoo gentleman I painted recently.  Here's the original set:
       

       
      and here are the two beggars:
       

       
      and here is the front of the female beggar, linked for an exposed female mammal part dangling about:
       
      Female Beggar, beware mammal parts!!
       
      I didn't originally mean to give the male beggar a black eye, but his eye was actually just a small little slit, and I was going to leave it as a dark link. So I did the line, then did the black eye, but after that, because I just couldn't resist, I tried to put white over the slit, and even though the white slit kind of took over and made it big enough for an eyeball to go there too, I think it came out okay.
       
      The two figures were pretty simple and they are rather small, being some nice old Dennis Mize 25mm.  If I remember to, I'll grab the quarter comparison shot one of these days.
       
      and just in case you want to see the whole set, I'm sticking the little old drummer voodoo priest here as well:
       

       
      to show the complete set!
       
      So hope you enjoy, thanks for having a look!

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      so I've been wanting to paint some dinosaurs for a while, so here is my first official one, a ceratosaurus, sculpted by Dennis Mize in the early eighties for his Ral Partha range Children of the Night.
       
      As always, the hardest part was to come up with a color scheme as I keep thinking "dinosaurs - green or grey" and don't really want to fall in to that trap at all. I've got more of them so I want to try different color schemes and patterns, maybe some stripes and spots and what not.
       

       
      This is one of the bigger ones I have. He's on a oval base probably for 50mm figures I'm guessing?  Can't actually remember where I found the base, but glad I had it sitting around.
       
      As I look at Mize's figures from this period and with all his dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, I wish he would have made some cavemen as well.  He did some primitive-looking figures later with his Beastmasters, but I would have really liked just some shaggy-haired guys and gals to accompany all these beasts.
