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!

      Hello to all the forumites of this fine page!
       
      So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base.
       
      I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one:
       

       
      and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf:
       
      Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords
       
      If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis
       
      And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf:
       
      Water Elemental
       
      Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman!
       
      So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days.  For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors?  In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest.  
       
      The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently.  
       
      Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about.  I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future.  And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
      "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.

      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!
