Not being the nostalgic type, I would say that the miniature does not do the paint job credit.

I'm thinking that's a compliment Adrift, so thank you!  The nice thing is if you take a "less modern" miniature and apply a decent coat of paint, they really do end up coming out pretty nicely and there are so many older miniatures wandering around the multiverse, they really just need a bit of love and care.

It was definitely a compliment to you!

I love following your work and you are one of the top reasons I still come to this forum.

 

Is the dagger meant to be curved like that? It feels bent.

Thanks Beowulf! That’s very kind of you to say so!  
 

That’s actually the way the dagger came, it’s very crooked and odd.

Very good work making that rather complicated armour look realistic.

Thanks paintybeard! It was really the only complicated part of the whole figure. 
 

this gal has a male version that I’m painting at the moment. Also a very simple figure with the exception of the armor studs.

think that thief is 1995-1996.  I have, or at least had, it - but that stuff is still heavily disorganized.  My memory says mid-90s or later, for however much my memory may still be worth.  

Here’s their page for range on the Lost Mini Wiki. The only bad thing is it doesn’t mention the years

 

http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Player_Character_Sets_(Male_%26_I'd probably have to wander around their catalogues to figure out exactly when they started being available. The good thing is you can still get them all at Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.

Very nice job!

Thank you very much Warlady!

 

I ended up editing a nice close up of the face:

It shows all the little points of dirt, dust and debris, but it's nice to do a close up sometimes.

The skin has a wonderful warm undertone to it - lovely!

Thank you Iridil, it started out as olive skin and did washes and highlights from there!

      And another Shadowrun figure, the third figure from what was originally a three piece set of Elven subtypes.
       
      This dapper gentleman is a Wakyambi, which from what I read on line (haven't ever actually ever played Shadowrun or own any of the gaming books), he's an African Elf Subtype, tall and thin.  He was fun to paint, but his dingly dangly stuff eventually just made me cry for mercy in the hopes I would someday finish. His necklace and his little staff had quite a bit of details to it, as well has his funky monkey belt buckle.
       

       
      and here is the set in its entirety, not completely great focus, but it's hard to get three figures to focus nicely:
       

       
      So three more finished, I wonder how many more I can get done before I go to the great beyond?  Hopefully 50 or more per year for another thirty to forty years, but we'll see....

      Hello to all you bovine aficionados!
       
      So a while back ago I did a normal minotaur, Greek-type mythological beast with an axe on two legs.   This one is a little different, it's a Shadowrun Minotaur which has a bull's body and a "primate" face.  I think Jim Johnson sculpted it back in the nineties, as usual forgot to check for a date on the bottom.  Pretty straight forwards colors, and it's actually kind of a big and heavy model. Put him on an oval base because there was no way he was going to fit on a normal size circle one:
       

       
      Anyhoos, hope you guys all enjoy him!

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
       
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
       
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

       
      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
       
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!

      Hello Reaperholics!
       
      So I've had this one finished for a few days now, but I usually photograph one sunny days and the last few days have been kind of cloudy.
      I actually really enjoy the figure, once you get paint on her, you bring out more detail.  She's from Ral Partha's Shadowrun range. Her original set came with a dryad and another large elf subtype that I'm also working on. I have the dryad done, but I wasn't happy with her eyes so I'm going to try one more time to fix the eyes before I take final pictures.
      Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!

       
      For whatever reason, I seem to always see magic flame as green, so this mini was no exception!

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?
