Such clean lines, and I like the shading/highlighting all around.  I especially like the red.  Wonderful job on the face, as well.  You weren't kidding that she's small!  Nicely done

Thanks Sentinel!  Yup, she is a petite lady! I think it's kind of helpful to give her the quarter comparison, as well as lots of the older Partha miniatures for people to appreciate really how small they are.

She looks amazing!

Thanks Glitterwolf! I'm enjoying these old Partha pieces, All Things Dark and Dangerous and the Children of the Night. Maybe someday I'll have both ranges almost completely painted. That's still years off though.

Beautiful work on her white dress and the red of the cloak is really rich and deep in color variation - another great paint up of these small oldies!

Thank you Iridil,  it was kind of hard to choose colors for her, but once I committed to a white dress with pink highlights, the rest kind of came naturally.  I kind of diverged too with the staff, I almost always just paint staffs black or brown, but this one needed to be a bit more matching her dress, and the eagle head too ended up being white, pink and purple.

She really is LOVELY. Her face is BEAUTIFULLY expressive, & your deft work with the brush & eye for colors are as SPLENDID as ever. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you Malefactus! Her face reminds me a little bit of Steffi Graff, the German tennis player. Don’t know if I spelled her name correctly.

She's lovely - you always do such beautiful, clean work.

Which is amazing if you saw my dirty, disorganized work space!  Thanks very much Warlady!

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      The second mini I finished while a bunch a y'all were at Reapercon. 
       
      Very tabletop quality, but there it is. I'll do more to the base once I have a few more things done, I'll batch it out. 
      I love this mini; Julie Guthrie made it super gross!

      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!

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:
