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.

 

I have problems working out what colours to use for clothes even if it's a modern-day figure.

White suits her well!

Gives an Amazone look IMHO.

She looks awesome, great work on the skin and gems.

It's where I always get stuck unless I have some kind of color plan ahead of time or unless it's just painfully obvious. I'm painting Juliana the Herbalist right now and she's more logical to me, natural colors, greens, browns and beigy whites.

Thank you very much Glitterwolf, she does give off kind of an Amazon vibe, doesn't she?  The skin started off as tan skin from Reaper, figured a warrior is outdoors a lot, needs to have some kind of tan.

For those who want their own, I think she's still sold by Iron Wind Metals (03-056).

Yup, she's still available out there! Lovely little miniature, not exactly sure when she was originally sculpted, but some time in the eighties without a doubt!

Lovely work. 

Thank you Loim, I really enjoyed painting her!  Let's face it though, I enjoy painting virtually anything I can get my hands on!

Beautiful - love her face!

Thanks Warlady, it's crazy with our funky modern cameras how good of closeups we can actually get!  Sometimes that's good and sometimes not so good, always depends.

She is lovely. Your whites are amazing.  I'm trying to remember if I have this one or not. If I do mine certainly doesn't look this good.

Thank you Inarah, I started off with leather white, then some blues, greys, and dark skin elf triad with a highlight color of pure white. 

 

If you have the figure around, you should paint her up and show her off and if you don't have one, you could always buy one, they're still available with Iron Wind!

Nicely done! One of my favorite RP minis, and one of the few I have that was sculpted by Bob Charette. Someday I'll get it painted. :-)

No time like the present!   Throw some paint on her!

 

I think sadly I forget about Bob Charette as a Partha sculptor, I usually think about Meier, Mize and Guthrie, but there are a number of other sculptors who worked at Partha too back in the day!

      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.

      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:
