Excellent painting.

She’s sort of a weird sculpt.  Very long face and short/small cranium...

And she had huge almond shaped eyes.

Great paintjob!

 

As for her somewhat strange facial features...did you consider she could be an alien?

I actually thought maybe more of an elf or some kind of enhanced human.

Yes, i think that's everyone's first thought... Wow, she has a long face.  ::P:

That said, good use of color and subtle shading.  it has a nice palette range while using colors a person would actually wear... and that's tough on a 25-28 mm scale!  Usually you have to exaggerate colors to make things stand out, but you pulled this off nicely.

I love the color choices on her and the striped shirt. Excellent work on the face, the sheepskin lining and helmet in particular stand out to me.

Very good lines on the shirt and great shadowing on the face and helmet! 
I think she looks Elfy and Pulp, and that's a great combination I don't see nearly often enough. Good work on a very distinctive sculpt.

Thanks GBPRime!

Can't escape that long face, but all I could do was try to paint her as nicely as possible so that people wouldn't say "Long face AND sucky paint job".  That would have been a bad combination!

Thanks Iridil, I really actually like the figure and how she was dressed.  I made that striped shirt thinking of those Russian sailor shirts, but of course those are tons of nice blue stripes, I could only fit four in that itty bitty space of her shirt.

Thank you Rigel! I think she looks nice and elfy, to that point when she takes off that goofy helmet her big pointy ears pop out!

      Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry.

      Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.)

      Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner.
      Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up.


      lots of pics beneath the

      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!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you 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!
