Hello all you Reaperloogans!
So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress. I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her. She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base. She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish.
Hopefully she turned out okay!
Good evening Reapertons!
So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986. She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook. Anyway, showing off new to old:
and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
and here they are all together:
So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme. There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief. One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing. Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!
Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure. I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.
I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!
Good afternoon my Reapergogglians!
So just finished up Ann Penchyk, a Shadowrun character apparently (don't know too much about Shadowrun still, after months and months of painting different Shadowrun figures.
I really dig this little blister pack, where we have Ann dressed in her corporate 9-5 job, and then the another version of her, the "adventurer" version of her. So with that in mind, I at least tried to keep her skin tones, hair color, et cetera the same so it looks like she just might be the same gal in different attire.
and how she spends her time Shadowrunning on the weekend:
and here they are together, side by side:
This is the first Shadowrun orc I've painted and from what I could tell with all the other artwork I've found on line, Shadowrun orcs can be any normal person's skin color, so even though I thought it was a bit strange, I painted her starting out with Tanned Highlights and worked up and down from there instead of doing some type of green base.
So ta-ta for now, hope you enjoy!
Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
Here’s the list of colors I used;
