Not my first, but it's the first one I painted when I got back into painting, so close enough in my eyes...  Next to my second most recently finished mini...

It's so interesting seeing other's firsts, especially when they're the same as my first.

 

Also, I really like the mini on the right! Where's it from, out of curiosity?

That would be the Ayyar (with Shock Marksman Rifle) from the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Army Starter Pack, by Corvus Belli.  It's also available as a two viral pistol sculpt, in more of a "guns blazing" kind of pose ^_^

I found a painted one!  This used to be in a Gallery on the Ral Partha webpage but the link to it is dead (…it's dead Jim.)

That’s one of mine.  ::D:  The Ral Partha forums never quite reached crtical mass...

OK, my very first post, figured this would be a good topic for it.

 

Started D&D minis back in the late 70s, but first minis would be Airfix soldiers, mostly Napoleonics, I liked the bright uniforms. This photo is Ral Partha minis and one very early Citadel crusader, done between 1979 and 1980. I was lucky falling in with a bunch of D&Ders who were experienced at painting, learned all the shading techniques and drybrushing and washes I had no clue about when doing the Airfix soldiers although I was pretty good at detailing. There are al done with Humbrol, Testor and Tamiya enamels.

Then I joined the Navy. This one is my return to painting after a 25 year absence. Did it with those crappy acrylics from Michael's they were cheap, but still got a decent result I think.

These are some of my latest, from Wargames Foundry and an older Bretonnian I picked up a while back that's been lingering in a drawer (will be posting my new Reaper minis as soon as I get them painted). Using a mix of paints from Reaper and Wargames Foundry, love the triad paint set concept, makes shading so much easier.
