Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers

Very nice color on the clothing and the face and hair are awesome like normal.  The hose looks very good as it is, but it is just slightly too dark right on and above the bent knee I think, hose would be stretched most there, and show more of the original skin color.

Thank you Citrine!

thanks for the pantyhose Feedback! I did try to do a really thin layer of white where I thought there might be some highlights, but didn’t really hit that area. It’s a continuous learning process.  I want to keep working on these semi-transparent fabrics, so this is just another learning step!

She looks really nice - I like the subdued busnissy coloring to her clothing and the bluish grey says 80s to me. The pantyhose are great but agree with Citrine - having worn them many moons ago the inherent flesh color comes through more on the knees and tops of thighs where the fabric is stretched - but that's picking nits on a good paintjob for sure.

Thank iridios another pantyhose opinion!  With your and Citrine’s critiques, I can certainly see where I should have put more highlights for these.  It will be a good lesson for my next pantyhose or just transparent fabric in general, thanks again to both of you!

I love it.
Especially how you painted the pantyhose. Did you paint them using glazes or just mixed in some greys into your skin palette?

Thank you much DragonWyrm!

I actually painted her legs totally like I would have without pantyhose, then did some washes where the pantyhose was on her legs,, first cloudy grey,, then storm grey, then dark elf shadow, then black. At the end I tried to do some light white highlights, that don’t seem to have worked out too well.

I agree with you; very cool figure that could find multiple uses in different genres/time periods. You've done a very nice job on painting her.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      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!

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!

      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!
