What a fantastic idea! They look amazing!


Thanks!  They were fun but in both cases I went too light and had to go back over the highlighted areas with a darker purple.  Other than that, Rocky, as usual was an absolute joy to paint.  The Panther dragon was a lot harder to keep track of everything, that tail is huge and hard to get to.

Great work on them both! I really like that old classic Partha dragon.

Thanks!  I liked it to but I took me forever to work up the nerve to paint it!  I wound up with a nonstandard color.  Black was my first choice but I either got a grey dragon a shiny dragon or an undifferentiated pool of darkness...

Which sounds much cooler than it looks!


@Glitterwolf thanks as always for the cool stamp of approval I don't know where you find them all!

Both well done - love the palatte - I'll have to steal use that idea. The ral partha dragon is stealing my heart though - it's such a perfect sculpt for the shadowy purples - I imagine it climbing the walls and crevices of an enourmous cavern, waiting to snatch party members one by one....

      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!

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?

      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!

      I managed to make my November quota and than some, now time to relax for holidays and birthday. Now I thought it'd be fun to do some more of reaper's savage coast characters. The last of what I managed this month.....   wow eight down, hundreds and hundreds to go, ouch.
