Great colours!

Lovely face, another gem in the collection!

Do you ever wonder if there are miniature museums out there somewhere?   One thing I really want to do one day when I can and after all this COVID stuff is go visit Reaper and see their museum where they house all the painted miniatures....

Sublime and very fey - wonderful fabric on the blue dress and her delicate face is so expressively done!

Itty bitty face and itty bitty eyes!

I need you to stop sucking all the joy out of my life by being such a better painter than me.

 

This is just great work. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

Indeed, it must have been a challenge to paint the eyes. You're right, that's a beautiful model, the headdress is amazing. I like the winter night color palette you selected, beautiful work.

I can try to get worse if you'd like.  In the long run though, I think that would suck joy out of both our lives!  

 

Thanks very much, glad you liked her!

Thanks Metalchaos, glad you like the colors!  I'm working on the male version right now, white shirt, light lavender pants, and I just through over his cape the first coat of base color which is pale buckskin I think it's called.  Not exactly sure how that one's going to go.

Beautiful. 

 

One of the minis I missed out on when Tom Meier closed down Thunderbolt Mountain. 

I'm happy to see that they're now available again.

Yup, available and from what I understand, more to come in the future!

      Hello everyreaperbody! 
      So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize.  Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one.  Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby.  I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago.  Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much.  So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep.
       
      I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over.
       
      So anyways, hope you enjoy!

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      Hello all you reaperlaiset! 
       
      So since the beginning of the year, I've been working on a little project to get all of these Thunderbolt Mountain fairies painted.  It's actually taken extra long because I painted two sets of these, and the duplicates were all the same colors, but it logically takes twice as long.  It was hard to decide on colors for these guys, but I did want to do a unique skin color for each one and a unique leotard color as well for each one.  I ended up doing the tutus the same color because I I would have done each one a different color, it would have take so much longer and as they are kind of a unit, I wanted something that would kind of bring them together.  These all belong to a set of Ballerina Fairies, sculpted by Tom Meier, inspired by an idea from his daughter.  They were originally from his company Thunderbolt Mountain, and are now available again through Ral Partha Legacy.  There's six of them so lots of photos to follow:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      So these are some pretty small figures, and I'm going to eventually put them on some simple bases.  I wouldn't almost mind leaving them like this, but I don't want them to tip over too easily.  I might work on the bases this weekend.  So anyhoos, enjoy!  I had quite a lot of fun painting these.  They are very delicate and detailed figures, but didn't take too long to really paint ultimately because they aren't overly laden with all those dingly danglies you find on lots of more modern figures. I've got a few more of these to do with some Pegasi, will do those some day in the not too far-flung future.
