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!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!

      Hello again Reaperlings!
       
      So here is the other figure I finished this morning from their Shadowrun Range, a Jim Johnson Female Bounty Hunter with Machine Gun.
       
      With this gal, hard to decide on colors. Do I go strictly drab and military greens and browns or do I add some color into it? I opted for color:
       

       
      I'm hoping/guessing that she's got some kind of radio/cell phone/walkie talkie in her other hand, but hard to know for sure. I think Shadowrun probably had a bunch of different technologies, not at all familiar with the game, but really do like the figures.  
       
      Once again, enjoy, hope you like!

      Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
       
      So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
       
      The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords.  I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
       
      So here she is:

       
      In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use.  I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work.  Such is the curse of the painter....
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure.  One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before.  She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off.  No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.
