They look great, I like how you used different skintones and colours for the clothing.

 

I do not trust them though, those wandguns look a bit deadly.

Thanks Glitterwolf!  The instinct starts, in order to get them done quickly, was to paint them all the same color, same clothing and skin tones, but then my stubborn side came out and wanted them to have a bit of variety.   Took a lot longer, and like I said above, I gave up with their tutus, because I wanted to finish sooner than later, and to kind of give them some kind of uniform aspect.

 

I'm sure the wands just shoot pure happiness!

Upeaa työtä! :poke:

I like the colors, the eyes are amazing also.

Are they as small as other minis from Thunderbolt's range?

Kiitoksia, mä olen onnellinen, että sä tykkäät niistä!

 

Yeah, they are pretty small miniatures.  They are basically child-sized versions of Tom's stuff, even though they might be child-sized against a 30 mm figure and not a 25 mm figure.  I'll have to take another shot with some objects to compare for size reference.  They are pretty petite!

These are absolutely great. I saw these on the legacy site recently and was on the fence about getting them, but I think your paint jobs are pushing me towards putting them in the cart. Thanks!

 

Just out of curiosity, will you be painting the flying unicorns to go with them?

I've got a few of Tom's elves and they are tiny. Even more stunning work on such a small canvas.

 

A bit odd to see some Finnish here, but mukavaa viikkoa! ::D:

Yeah, the hardest thing with Tom's figures are the eyes, which are often so extremely small!

 

Maailma on täynnä ihmeitä näin, asuin siellä Suomessa yli 30 vuotta sitten ja kieli on aina ihastuttanut minua!

Don't hesitate, you only live once, put them in your cart!  These pictures are showing up now there for a little bit of color!

 

I've got both the flying unicorns and am planning on doing them soon.  I'm going to take a small fairy break, paint up a few Parthas, and then am going to come back to them, hopefully in a month or two.

I love those fairy girls. I'm so glad that I was able to get a set of them before Thunderbolt Mountain stopped making them. But I didn't get any of the unicorn pegasus ones.

Part of me kind of hopes that Dark Sword takes them up as a sort of legacy line.

I saw the set you painted and they are really beautiful, you did a wonderful job on them! 

So Dark Sword doesn't have them but Ral Partha Legacy has begun selling them as well as other figures from Thunderbolt Miniatures.

Yes, a great job.  I especially liked the eyes.  It took a lot of skill to do those eyelids, but they really add a lot to the look of their faces.

Glad you like them! It’s all part of that same process. I figure if the eyes and faces turn out okay, the rest will more or less follow

Yeah, I've painted these minis before, and those are some extremely tiny faces. They look great.

Thank you much Odinsgrandson! I have to say that the good thing about these faces, even though they are small, at least they are easy to get to, they don't have weapons in the way obstructing your paint brush or anything like that, so that at least helped.

      Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix.   Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages.  The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well.  Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag.  I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one!
       
      EDIT:  Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:

      Hello and good evening all you Reaper Maniacs!
       
      So here's a few miniatures I've been meaning to paint but just haven't gotten around to them, you know, too many minis, not enough time.  But I did finally get around to these, which are pretty fun,  Squidmen with Goo Guns, sculpted by Tom Meier when he had the company Thunderbolt Mountains.  These are miniatures that his son had designed.  
       

       
       

       
       

       
      and here they are as the actual group/blister pack they come in:
       
       
       
      Anyhoos, quite enjoyable and reasonably simple to paint, hope you guys and gals all enjoy!

      and it's day one after the grand Kickstarter Bones 6 and time to pull my eyeballs away from the ever changing Kickstarter screen and back to my version of reality.
       
      So here's one more figure I've got, painted a couple years back, but once again, as it hadn't been released, never showed him off.  Well, he's out and about in the public, so here he is a very small Dwarves Necromancer, sculpted by Dave Summers three or four years back:
       

       
      I really like how his face is half a skull and half a living dwarf. It I would have been thinking years back, I would have maybe painted a side of his beard a lot lighter, but oh well, not going to worry about it now.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Hello everybody on the penultimate day of the Reaper Bones 6 Kickstarter!
       
      So here's another figure I've been sitting on for a while, painted it I think already a couple years back but never posted or showed it off because he wasn't yet available.  Well he was recently released over at Ral Partha Legacy, so it's time to show him off!
       

       
       
      Back in the eighties, if I recall correctly, Tom Meier sculpted a whole bunch of troglodytes, I think with the Ral Partha/Citadel collaboration back then, and when Ral Partha Legacy had one of their Kickstarters, they re-released those older figures.  A little bit later Tom Meier sculpted this little fellow up, a sorcerer/priest/leader for whatever group of trogs you might end up gathering.  He has a pretty long base so he got stuck on one of their mount bases.  
       
      and kind of funny, now that I start thinking about it, I've been using the only other Partha Troglodyte that I've painted as my avatar:
       

       
      I might want to change that, I don't feel like an ugly lizard.......

      Hello all you Reaperlased!
       
      So I painted these a few years back, but as they hadn't been released yet, I never posted them.  These are four new figures from Ral Partha Legacy, Drunken Dwarves, that were just recently released.  Fun figures sculpted by Dave Summers, pretty much in that same scale as the old Tom Meier Partha dwarves from the eighties were sculpted in.
       

       
      I'm always excited when Ral Partha Legacy releases new figures, whether they be re-releases of old Partha miniatures of days yore, or new releases of figures that were recently sculpted. 
      Here they are all together:
       

       
      Great group of guys, always ready for an excuse to grab a mug of beer, perfect for tavern encounters!
