They came out well. Some of those old school sculpts weren't bad at all and you brought out the best in these. I like the subdued colors, too.

I’m an old school aficionado, so for me,  the great majority of old school stuff is pretty swell, they just need a little bit of love, care and patience!

I love the muted colours, great job as always!

Thanks Glitterwolf!

 

I think one of these days I’m going to have to buy me some different greens though, I usually end up starting most things with pale olive and start moving my washes around from there.

Wow, no, that looks like a nice variety! How do those paints compare to Reaper?

 

Scale 75 is a tad thicker and needs to be shaken well.

Usually turns out opaque/matt.

My paint collection consists for about a third Reaper. A third Vallejo and a third Scale 75, a few other brands with a pot or bottle here or there.

The metallics are really the best around.

 

They also have these greens:

Interesting, might have to give them a try.  I’ve really only got all Reaper paints right now. Might venture a bit out of my paint comfort zone!

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      Good morning everybody and Happy New Year!
       
      So I actually had these painted since the very beginning of the year, but had to go out of town and couldn't get their bases finished until I got back.  So here are my first miniatures completed for 2020, four lizard men that Julie Guthrie sculpted for Ral Partha if I recall correctly in 1982-1983 with her series All Things Dark and Dangerous.  I've always really loved these figures and have had them on my pending list of stuff to paint, but finally got around to really painting them.  I painted each one in a different color because I wanted a bit of variety.  They did all start of though being covered by a good layer of Creamy Ivory (Reaper) and then I did washes on all that, and then afterwards chose the actual color and kept going.
       
      Anyhow, hope you guys like these guys!

      So as the year comes to a close, this is my last miniature of 2019.    I thought my figure from a few days ago would be the last but I got lucky enough to have  time to squeeze one more in!
       
      This one is a Dennis Mize figure from who knows what year, but pretty old, and she was sitting on my desk for months already primed and ready to go. Somehow the inspiration took me and I started working on her a few days ago, and in delightful old class Partha form, her lack of additional dingly dangly items on her person made her a pretty quick paint job, just herself, her armor, shield, weapon and a belt.  So got her done a few nights ago, got the base done last night.
       
      With this gal, one of my issues (as always )was what I was going to put on her shield, because I never know what to do, but in a moment of inspiration it occurred to me that she could use an enchanted shield to make up for her limited visibility due to her poked out eyeball that would have been under that patch.  So I made the the opposite eye open on her shield and voila, I've solved her limited vision issue!
       
      So my total for 2019 was 60 miniatures, the majority Partha, but a smattering of Reaper as well.  Did two Thunderbolt Mountain minis as well.
       
       
      Anyhoos,  Happy 2020 everybody and we'll certainly speak next year with all next year with new miniatures to share!
