Nicely done! 

 

I knew the owner of Dark Horse Miniatures back in the days of only having Dark Horse Games as the only game store over in Boise, ID

I wonder if In his basement he has a huge stockpile of old Groo minis? Do Idahoans have basements?

 I do believe he only did limited runs on those + TMNT  (based on the original b&w comic) figures as well. Thus no stock remained, even when he told me he was behind DH minis.

Awesome!

He looks really angry, did he step on  a piece of lego this morning?

LEGO or a hedgehog maybe?

That’s a pity indeed.

Ah man I’d love to have some Eastman/Laird Turtle minis. 

I think I actually have a few of those, primed and sitting around. Who knows if I’ll ever get around to painting them though.

I was just looking at their Groo blister packs and people are charging crazy amounts for them, sadly more than I’m willing to pay..

A real blast from the past, there, with a FINE paint job. I've got this guy, but your paint job is better.

Somewhere in the hobby room, I have the four-set of Groo, Chakaal, Minstrel and Sage from Dark Horse miniatures. Bought them years ago. Opened the blister, stashed the figs, forgot about them for a decade.

Now I wish I'd left them in the blister.

The moral of the story: always snag the licensed minis FAST, because licenses expire, and then they'll cost a fortune on eBay....

I'd like to say I'd left some miniatures in their blisters, but for good or for ill, with 98% of my miniatures, as soon as I get a pack of miniatures, I tear them open...

 

And man, way back then, we just didn't have EBay.....

      Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers,
       
      So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy.
       
      I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it.  I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all.  My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure?
       

       
      To give a comparison, here is how my camera turned out:
       

       
      It's a lot darker.
       
      Anyhoos, looking for photographic opinions. 
       
      And to give you an idea of how small this figure it is, here she is in comparison to a US quarter:

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      Here’s the list of colors I used;

      Good evening all you Reaper Spirits!
       
      So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure.  Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female.  With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays.
       

       
      Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day!
      Enjoy!

      Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors.  Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both
       
      First up:  the Panther dragon from Ral Partha.  This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint.  This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear.  This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it.  I finally just broke down and said I am going to paint this!
       


       
      Then on the flip side is the Treasure Rocky.  This little tyke has acquired his first hoard and he is insanely protective  and proud.  
      And he should be.  I was looking at the reaper store and he and most of his pals are sold out, again!  These are just a joy to paint and I 
      love painting them.  they are just so entertaining and so full of character that no matter what color you add to them or what you put them in 
      they have to shine!




       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      Hello Reaperdeepers!
       
      So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress:
       

       
      not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes.  This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole.  As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now.
       
      Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to paint, hope you enjoy her!
