Wow! Your NMM just keeps getting crisper and more striking with each piece. Beautiful work!

 

EDIT: It is NMM, right? It looks so good it has me second guessing.

Thank you BardicDave, yes, it is NMM.  I still struggle with it so much, sometimes it turns out better than other times.  I always bring it up to white, but fear that it doesn’t reflect those brightest white points in my photos, or maybe then hence even in real life.

Good catch!  I was thinking of them more like their male and female versions of their archetype sets of adventurers.

I have noticed in your previous pieces that sometimes the NMM highlights appear a little more muted, which is actually a great aesthetic for these retro pieces. I would have assumed it was a stylistic choice if you hadn't said otherwise; it looks great.

 

On these two pieces, you really nailed the chainmail highlights in particular though. The chainmail specifically looks a lot like TMM to me.

Oh I only wish it were a stylistic choice.  Sadly, it’s the only way I know how to paint!

Nothing sad about it. Your stuff always looks great. Wish I could paint half as well as you!

Thanks very much BardicDave!  What little talent I may have comes from decades of self-imposed painting torture.

What a wonderful job on those tiny faces! Once again splendid painting on these old school figures... I think blues and greys fit the old school high elves very well. The chainmail is outstanding

Thank you Iridil! These faces are actually relatively large, with nicely exposed eyes that were easy to reach.

      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.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!

      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.
       
      9-5 Ann:


       
      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 all you Reaperhemians!
       
      So my last four minis were a blister pack of Ral Partha Shadowrun Tribals, sculpted by Dennis Mize, with a date stamped on the bottom of 1992, so 19 years ago.(EDIT -apparently I can’t do math. I was thinking a moment ago, wait, my kid is twenty eight years old and he was born in 1992, so the miniature is actually 28 or so years old!)  I really enjoyed working on these figures.  The first thing was the Native American skin, for which I used the Redstone Triad to get figured out.  I hope it doesn't look too red.   The other thing was all the beads they have on their clothing, for which I gave up and decided to go with the same colors for each bead set, even though I though of doing different colors in the same string of beads but kind of gave that thought up because I didn't want it to take forever.  The other thing I kind of tried was to use a red, white and blue color theme for the accents, with their natural leathers and I threw in a bit of green and yellow.
       

       
       
      So anyways, hope you all enjoy!
