Wow respect.... I think the blue eyes work great, and really cool skin tones.

Thanks very much Mr. Knekk!

 

I've got one more dark skinned figure I'm working on, which I hope to have ready by the end of the week.

Those skin tones are really nice. Brilliantly done.

 

Just out of curiosity: is there a reason why the thread title says this is done by Dennis Size, but you correctly say Dennis Mize in the first post? Is it some joke I'm missing on the scale of those minis (as evidenced by your last pic with the quarter)? Honestly, just wondering if it's a typo or perhaps a long-running joke about Mize's sculpts.

Thanks for pointing that out, it was just a typo that I’ll try to fix now!

Ok, thanks. Just making sure.

 

Pssst... hate to be that guy but... your post on the Ral Partha Witch by Dennis also has the same typo in the thread title and in the first post. :down:

Dang, it’s the auto-correct, it’s not me!

So what you are saying with that last picture is that I have quarters that are bigger than him. =)

 

If they were standing up straight they might be about quarter sized, but sitting down like he is and squatting like she is, then your statement is certainly correct!

Your skin tones are great, and I think the all blue eyes add to the spooky voodoo effect.

I agree with @Warlady

He is an unholy trance causing his eyes to turn blue.

I love the skin and the hair on this little fellow.

So hopefully the blue eyes served a purpose.However if I really wanted to emphasize them, I probably should have done something additional to them.

Yeah, that's what happens when I go into an unholy trance, I have to admit.

Older Partha sculpts had awesome anatomy, frankly more accurate than today's Reaper figures.

 

The downside is that makes the eyes TINY, especially on 28mm figures, and difficult to paint.

 

I'm a hand drummer, although I don't hold my drum this way, as my style is Middle Eastern instead of the more popular African (or bongos). Maybe I should get this guy just because of his drum?

Thank you Iridil!  It was easy to get highlights with his back, because he's thin and bony!

It is sometime kind of realistic, and other times crazily exaggerated.  This little guys has a huge long drum-beating arm, probably not  quite proportional, but yeah, the eyes are pretty realistically proportioned, even though sadly way too small. 

 

I'd say yes, grab a copy, he's out there on Partha's web site, not expensive at all!  And who knows what other old gems you might find there!

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
       
      Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!

      These guys are really tiny, from back in the days when the word "miniature" really meant something.  They are based on 0.5" washers.

      And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night".  
       
      And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue.
       

       
      Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt.  Let me know what you think of the colors!
