Very nice painting of an elegant classic - I have a fondness for the look of fabrics from those figures - love the subtle sinister look to him - brightly colored evil!

You can't go wrong with evil and red, except in the case of Santa of course.....

Hello all and good evening!

 

Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days.

 

Fun figure, pretty straightforward.  His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch!

Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!

 

oh for sure, very first character i played " back in the day D&D " was a dual class fighter-mage

 

do you have, (plan to paint) , the other 2 from the series?

Yes actually, I've been trying to paint these older Guthrie pieces by original blister pack, so sooner or later I'll get the other two as well.

      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!
       
      Enjoy!

      Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I completed this aberration Yesterday. The metal version 02838, of the Faceless Horror sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The number of eyes and teeth on this model is phenomenal. It is not an easy monster to deal with. However, I had a lot of fun painting it. I painted the inside of the mouth prior to assembling and I used Reaper MSP paints only.
       
      I started painting this aberration during Geoff Davis' class on painting eyes at Reaper Virtual Expo. This was the perfect mini to practice the techniques which have been explained. I also had a lot of fun painting all those toothy smiles and the skin in various colors.
       
      I wanted to depict the monster in its natural environment. So, after gluing the Gibbering mouther on a 50mm base, I simply added gravel and stone blocs to complete the scene. I finally added drooling saliva using translucent supports and Mod Podge.

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!

      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!
