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!

      This is a relatively recent paint job and I struggled with colors for a while before taking inspiration from another model and strengthening the contrast in places.  I like the model but she feels very stiff and doll-like.
       

       
      Or maybe she doesn't like the light in her eyes:
       

       
      Fiddled around with some freehand on the back:

      I am not good at telling stories on paper.  my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself.  this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s.  The piece is high lead content.  so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). 
       
      The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving.  The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
       
      I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box.  I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring.  The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
       
      anyway the WIP is here if your interested:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
       
      and here are the images of the final project.  Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this.  Feel free to comment and question away as always.  The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
       



      One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....



      And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      Hello everyreaperbody! 
      So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize.  Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one.  Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby.  I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago.  Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much.  So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep.
       
      I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over.
       
      So anyways, hope you enjoy!
