Lovely work on her. They are so finely detailed and you really caught a lot of that in her delicate features.

Thank you Inarah! With the details being so fine, I had to be extra careful when priming as to not clog up the details and in the base layers as well. I gave her three very watered down layers of primer and still feel that with primer and paint still clogged up some of the detail, like her flowery edgework.

Wow. That's awesome!

Thanks Glitterwolf! This little lady came with another companion, that I’m working on right now and hope to have done over the next couple of days. Same problem though, I don’t dare add eyebrows, because I don’t want to mess them up.

Beautiful subtle work on her face - wow!

Thank you Iridil!  She’s really got a really small head, I should probably take a picture next to a coin for comparison and context.

Remarkable work. Light enough touch to make a fine tattooist I would expect.

I don’t know if people want me drawing on their bodies with sharp needles.

I’d have to find somebody crazy enough to submit to going under my needle. 

Not that I know first-hand, but....grapefruits make an excellent substitute for human flesh to practice inking. I woulda kept apprenticing to be a tattooist myself if my eyes hadn’t gone bad. Now I just paint tiny monsters.

Maybe the tiny monsters are what destroyed your eyes. I’m pretty certain they’ve had a part in my own ocular decline.

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

      I've had this one in the works for a while. She's a little more cheerful and Art Noveau than most of the rest of my Miskatonic staff, but that's okay! Misk.U. cultivates eccentrics of all types. She seems to be handling the job just fine. And those pointed ears indicate she's already survived a brush with chaos, or perhaps has a little bit of eldritch in her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      Her colleagues are a Stonehaven halfling librarian and a Black Cat librarian/cultist. Gave them both a minor touch-up for this shoot.

      This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.

      This is Peruhain, Elven Monk (SKU 3169, Metal) from Reaper.  I am trying to paint up at least one of every main class/race combination.

      Good evening gents and gentettes,
       
      So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken.
       
      So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead.  I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other things I could have done with him, but calling him done. This one is a classic Ral Partha Julie Guthrie figure from her range "All Things Dark and Dangerous", from back in the eighties.  Most of them you can still end up getting still from Iron Wind, so that is a plus. Anyways, here he is, hope you like him!
