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!

      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.

      Merisiel, Iconic Rogue.  The original artwork is very good but this is one of the early Bones models that did not translate well to the medium.   She flops over, the weapons did not come out well, and much of her detail is guesswork.  I even had to sculpt her a nose because she didn't come with one.  I tried to follow the artwork more or less, but it wasn't worth the effort to spend too much time on her.

      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!
