 I've come to the conclusion over the years that a lot of the older figures that look a bit more "stylized" compared to the modern realism really need to be painted in the "old-skool" style... Dipping and drybrushing as artistic choices and a certain almost impressionist feel to the paintjob just seems to work better with some of the older sculpts than trying to go for high detail and seamless blending.

Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things

Exactly!!  This dude looks great.  Many of us sometimes allow ourselves to forget, the hobby is supposed to be fun and stress relieving.  Tabletop level painted minis not only provide that quick fun, but bring joy to others in a game.  Good work!  I have a handful of Heritage minis that are about to get the same level of painting.

      I finished Ape-X this evening, I figure he'll go well with the mad scientist group of figures that I'm slowly working on. His base was warped pretty badly, and even boiling it didn't help, so I chopped it off and rebased him on a resin base that looks like a wrecked lab.
       
      Like most of my stuff, he's painted for tabletop; I hope you like him.

      I knocked out some random pieces of scenery last night. Everything was washes and dry brushing.
       I  hope you like them.
       
      First up is a heavily damaged Jersey barrier made by Secret Weapon miniatures.  
       

       

      Next are 2 grave stones from craft store Halloween village sets. The one on the left I repainted then did washing and drybrushing. The one on the right i intentionally did a sloppy job of painting so that some of the original colors were still visible, then i weathered it like the other one.

       

      I'm not sure where I got this table from, but it looked like it would be pretty quick to spruce up, so I  did. 

       
      Let me know what you think, please.

      I wanted to just get something done, so I did this ghost up in about an hour. I did go back and try to do a little OSL on the tombstone where it was phasing through it. Basing was an extra 20 minutes or so.
       
      It's nothing spectacular,  but it'll look good on the table.

      A long time ago, I painted up a model of Barros & Tempest (DHL #3096). Unfortunately, this is now one of my missing minis. It is located somewhere in my parent's place, but where exactly, no one knows... All that I have left are these pictures from an old computer. But I really like this model, so I ordered a new one and painted it up with a different rider and a horse of a different colour. Their barding matches, just incase the original is ever found.
       
      Here is the missing Barros & Tempest. Please forgive the bad photography skills, I took these photos on a freezer with a piece of paper behind them in place of a real box. I used a pin and green attach Tempest (I'm assuming that is the name of the Pegasus) to the stand. It didn't hold up well, and it looks like they are coming in for a landing or to smite someone.
       

       
      And here is my new version of Barros & Tempest. This model is hard to photograph because there are so many cool sculpted features going all the way around the model.
       

       
      I love the movement of these sculptures. They work really well together.

      This is actually a 54mm miniature; it was made by GW for their long OOP Inquisitor game. It came as a pet/sidekick for the mutant character Quovandius.
      I got the pair of them for $1.50 at a store clearance sale. While going through boxes the other day, I found the rat, but not the other figure. I decided the rat would make an excellent mad scientists experiment, so I painted it up. Please let me know what you think.
