Great job!

 

You might already know this, but on Lostwiki Mini, you can actually download many older catalogues.

Ral Partha, Grenadier, Metal Magic etc.

They're visible on the bottom of the respective pages.

Might be useful for looking up SKU's / Sculptors etc.

Nice set of siblings!

I guess I never thought of their relationship quite like that, but now that you think about it, they could be brother and sister.

Thank you Glitterwolf!

 

Yup, the LostMini Wiki has some catalogues, also on the ralpartha.com site they have some as well.  When I get so inspired I'm going to try to figure out who sculpted these.

Very clean paint job, and a great color choice. You really brought those minis to life!

Thank you very much! jdizzy001!

Beautiful whites. A color I have problems portraying realistically in large areas. 

I think one of ways to get white to work is to usually start with an off white (their shirts started as leather white and I think the pants were either linen white or creamy bone, don't remember) then work down in washes from there and highlight with pure white.

Wonderful color scheme - very silivian but with the yellow it looks different. The staves are wonderfully done with the well highlighted dark - marvelous

Thanks, I wanted some little pop of color with the white, which is why I did that yellow inner cloak. I did think about just everything being shades of white, but didn't want it to be too bland.

Just checked and according to the Lost Mini Wiki, the sculptor was Jeff Grace!8EB74F10-B421-4C14-9220-0768F43E2929.jpeg.051a388014c5afb6be5f0de2c82621b0.jpeg

I really loved these sets. Great job on these.

The black on the staves is stunning.

 

Thanks Loim! Crazily enough, I wanted them to actually be more blue than black but they ended out turning out blacker than blue.

Yup, love those matching yellow cloaks.  Beautiful job!

A set of his and hers cloaks, all the fantasy couples want them!

      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!
