And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion,
So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon. This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next. This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties. Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones. The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue. I wanted to originally paint them green to match the crystal in the Shaman's staff, but I didn't think there would be enough contrast between the grass/moss around the stones.
The little iguana familiar will be next!
Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games.
More pictures under the spoiler (64 pictures).
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

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 everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.
The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers. They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell.
Ophelia was a fun mini as well. Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes. I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush. I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur. The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered. You can be the judge. I also enjoyed painting a rogue that was both colorful, but subdued. The dark greens and magentas add some much needed life to the otherwise dark mini, in my opinion.
More Photos beneath the spoiler:
Ophelia Pokitz is what you would call a troubled teen. Orphaned at a young age, Ophelia spent much of their childhood passing from orphanage to orphanage, always finding a way to get kicked out. They eventually left the system and struck out on their own, traveling to some of the larger cities in search of a better life. Over the years, Ophelia has learned to use their small size and tiny hands to "reposes" any valuables that aren't bolted down. This habit has put them on a wanted list in many towns across the countryside. Pushed further north, Ophelia has found themselves in the town of Harpy's Hearth. Ignorant of their southern reputation, and full of gold-carrying adventurers, this could be a great place for Ophelia to catch a break and line their own pockets. It could also be a great place to find a new family. If they can survive the darkness to come.
