Presenting Lysette, a mage from the Bones USA line by Reaper.
Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things.
Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
And hello again, my Reaper brethren and sistern,
Another mini I finished just this afternoon, a Ral Partha Mage with Wand, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the late seventies or early eighties. He came from the Children of the Night range, and his blister pack was originally called Shadow Elves or something like that, but nowadays at Iron Wind Metals, he's just known as Mage with Wand. I was going to use my normal camera to take these pictures, but my battery died and I didn't have any left at home, so took this one again too with my iPhone. he came out okay, not sure if too much contrast?
Unlike the Unicorn I just posted, this one is only two photos, a front and a back. The only thing I'm not sure if I'm that happy with is his wand. The little jewel on top I was thinking of reddish-orange, but it may have turned out too much like the chestnut brown of the holding part of the wand. Anyhoos, this was a relatively simple mini to paint, not a lot of dingley danglies, which makes for a pretty quick job. In this blister pack he's got a female and two other male shadow elves. I'm almost kind of inspired to paint the rest of them as well. I've already painted the female three times, but the other two males haven't done yet. We'll see how inspired I get and if I throw them in my queue. Being they were called Shadow Elves, I thought of a drow vibe and one of the versions of the chick I actually did paint as a drow. Alas, we'll see what I end up doing, so many miniatures and only 30-40 years to live.

A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend
As mentioned in the Work In Progress, this is a character of mine from an existing campaign. The character has died once and was raised from the dead suffering a drop in his already low Charisma score as a result. His caved-in skull didn't heal properly and the concussion and time in limbo have left him "off" personality wise.
So, with damaged head and tattoos adorning his arms and the opposite side of his skull, I present the embodiment of his family surname, Tor Skullcrusher.
These were taken with a single strip light source so I may come back to this and take some more pics with two background lights.
As always, feel free to leave notes and praise as warranted.
Thanks for looking.
Enjoy and Stay safe.

A Thrym Project :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend.
Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk. As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere.
I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far. I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis.
Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull. An ironic happenstance, given the character's name.
Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club. This is not something unusual so far. The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby. Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness. He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin.
So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead. His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse.
I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better. The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel. I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig.
For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin. The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash. I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well. The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again.
For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof. The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head.
His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it.
Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit. I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points.
More work to come soon.
Stay Tuned and Safe. Enjoy.
This was an experiment with color. I decided to give the Limited Palette challenge a try last night. The challenge is 3 colors, plus black and white. Specifically, the three colors must be a blue, green, and pink. I chose cyan blue, gnoll pelt, and cactus flower. I'm quite happy with how she came out, for a figure I wasn't terribly interested in to begin with.
Sorry, my camera could not handle a close-up of the face.
For anyone wondering about the red hair, a strange thing happens when you mix cactus flower and gnoll pelt....
The base is from Secret Weapon.
