Nice job on another old classic. I've got a copy of her painted up in one of my figure cases.

I’ve had her forever unpainted, like I’ve had so many other figures just waiting for some love.  It was finally time to lather her with paint and affection!

Great job.  Nice accentuation of armor with the red and purple pops of color.

 

Sometimes getting into each hole of chainmail is a real pain.  Try thinning the “go back” layer with water and flow improver to get into the cracks easier.  Without it, sometimes 2 or 3 tries and the white recess remains.

Next time I’m going to get a really watery wash and push it down into the holes.  I tried doing this before but I just can’t get into all the holes.

with features that tiny the surface tension of the liquid will be too much for it to enter holes that small, they're basically pin-pricks. Maybe try a black spray paint base-layer first? Might not matter though, even without paint the holes in the chain still look black

 

Nicely painted though, the hair looks great

Thank you much Fencig!

 

Yeah, I’ll be trying chain mail again sooner or later and am going to try to get those holes filled for the next one.. I keep trying but there are always ones that are so small that they just don’t want to take in liquid or paint.

      Good evening my Reaperhoovians!
       
      So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize.  Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them.  Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part.
       

       
      and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives, so even if there are no Drow in Shadowrun, nobody will lose a finger.
       
      And here's the group as it's all together:
       

       
      I wanted them to fit all in one page so I didn't put them on bases, and I painted the rim black, and I can see a little bit of irregularities on that.  Not sure if I may eventually actually either repaint the base or actually put them on bases so they don't fall over.  The biggest problem is after I take them off their temporary base, I don't want to touch them and that's where it all gets tricky.
       
      Anyhow, a problem for later, hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:
