Ral Partha Sorceress with Wand by Dennis Mize

Nice choice of color. The pink inner side of the cloak works beautifully with the green and dark purple.

I also like the unusual green color of the lips. You managed to pull out the hair detail as well, great work.

She has some lighter green eyeshadow, don't know how well you can actually see it, and the lipstick to match. With the darker skin sometimes it needs a bit of contrast to make it pop.

Gorgeous skintones on her, and that green is both soft and vivid at the same time - great texture comes through in the folds.

Thanks Warlady,  I can't remember for sure, but I think the base color of the green was the Reaper Leaf Green and then copious washes and highlights.

She is beautiful, and the dark cloak really looks like velvet!

Beautiful skintones and great face (so tiny!) - love seeing these older minis so well done!

I’m very glad them Iridil, I plan on painting them for many years to come! I’m 51 now, so hopefully another minimum 20 years of painting before I either go blind or get the shakes, hopefully 26 minis or more per year, so hopefully another 520 or more minis painted before I abandon this mortal coil.

Thank you Citrine, I wanted kind of plush colors for this mage.  I hope she just didn’t go too colorful.

I love the skin tones, and the graceful color scheme. 

Thanks Viking Hank, not too many colors?

Old Ral Partha gets an auto-like from me, Mize was a master!  But this time it's for the paint job too.  Nice.

Wow this green robe really looks impressive well worked out, fantastic as well as the skintones, the face and simply the overall look. Yep I also think this purple and pink matches well with the green.

So hard to choose colors! I eventually give up and just slap down a color that doesn’t overly offend my eyes!

      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!

      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!

      Hello everybody! Hope a lot of you are having a great time at ReaperCon, one of these days hope to go!
       
      So here is one of the figures I finished last night, a Ral Partha female fighter, sculpted by Bob Charette.   With this figure, it took me forever to figure out what color I wanted her clothing to be, so after a long and painful struggle just gave up and made them white. Don't know if that's ever happened to anybody else?
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!
