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.

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.

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.

 

 

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!

      Good evening my Reaperhoovians!
       
      So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize.  Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them.  Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part.
       

       
      and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives, so even if there are no Drow in Shadowrun, nobody will lose a finger.
       
      And here's the group as it's all together:
       

       
      I wanted them to fit all in one page so I didn't put them on bases, and I painted the rim black, and I can see a little bit of irregularities on that.  Not sure if I may eventually actually either repaint the base or actually put them on bases so they don't fall over.  The biggest problem is after I take them off their temporary base, I don't want to touch them and that's where it all gets tricky.
       
      Anyhow, a problem for later, hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!
