RMI 02449 Callus Darklore, Necromancer by Jim Johnson

Recommended Posts

This mini of my favorite evil mage type figures. I painted it a while back, and it has seen heavy use (gaming, displaying, a few moves, an a couple of stunt dives off a congested gaming table). I plan on touching up the chipped areas (see edge of scroll), but I would like to know how to make the paint more durable for future minis.

 

The Callus figure was de-flashed, sanded, primed, painted, and then given a clear coat.

Looks good.

 

As for durability, have you tried Reaper Brush on Sealer?

Or Army Painter Anti Shine Varnish Spray?

Nice archetypal mage- very vivid and I like the scroll. I don't know anything beyond what Glitterwolf has said, but have found that some minis, particularly metal ones, just have spots where the paint comes off no matter how carefully I wash, prime and then seal them.

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Hello again Reaperlings!
       
      So here is the other figure I finished this morning from their Shadowrun Range, a Jim Johnson Female Bounty Hunter with Machine Gun.
       
      With this gal, hard to decide on colors. Do I go strictly drab and military greens and browns or do I add some color into it? I opted for color:
       

       
      I'm hoping/guessing that she's got some kind of radio/cell phone/walkie talkie in her other hand, but hard to know for sure. I think Shadowrun probably had a bunch of different technologies, not at all familiar with the game, but really do like the figures.  
       
      Once again, enjoy, hope you like!

      Vatanis came in my  Paint & Take Home Survival Kit, and I started him off as part of the craft paint challenge, but it just wasn't working. 

       
       
       
      So he got set aside for a couple of months, until I saw Cicciopiu's magnificent rendition.  I leaned on it heavily for inspiration

      He has so, so many details.  I could put much more time into this, but I had reached a point where I had to stop.

      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!
