I like how the eyes of the Pegasus say "Go ahead, I dare you to say anything."  At least they seem that way in the first pic.

The unicorn has such huge eyes, they were a joy to paint. A superior painter could do so much with them, I really could only give them a pupil, color and a white dot.

Awesome!

It's also disturbing that something cute comes at you with a blaster gun..

If you choose to believe the US-centric concept that every law-abiding fairy has the right to defend herself, it ceases to be so disturbing.

Gorgeous work!

I'm assuming that weapon is an Excellent Prismatic (Sp)Raygun. 

No idea what that is, but I’m going to say yes?

Wonderful miniature and I LOVE the saturated paint job!  That's definitely the sort of miniature that, if I had one, I would have to find an EXCUSE to put it on the table in some RPG scenario, however weird and strained -- but even more so if it had such a fantastic paint job.

 

I find it interesting how you painted the support rod a sky blue.  So often, when I have to contend with such a thing, I'll paint it black or perhaps a dark grey, but it would never occur to me to paint it any particular *color*.  To my surprise, I think it actually works, visually, nicely contrasting with the pinks of the alicorn(?) body, and finding an echo in the fairy's blue hair.

This is a very fun piece, and I'm glad I got to see it.  🙂  Thanks for sharing!

Call me simple, but I just thought they’re in the air, so between them and the ground is sky, so I figured some sort of sky blue would be a pretty good color!

      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!

      Hello Reapervites!
      So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.
       
      With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:
       

       
      Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!
       
      So enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperlodytes!
       
      Continuing the work on some old school goodness, more Ral Partha elves from 1976 I think:
       

       
      These are all wood elves, and I've got some more coming, so I'm trying to get them painted in browns, yellows, oranges and greens.
       
      These are their two spearmen.
       
      Just like the Elven Princess, back in the pre-history of miniatures.  Super straight forward, a little awkward, amazing to compare these to Tom Meier's more recent figures!

      Good evening Reaperologists!
       
      So tonight taking a journey back to the past in the late seventies when Ral Partha was in its infancy, here is a Ral Partha Elven Princess, sculpted by Tom Meier.  A simple miniature from a simple time, it shows how far miniature sculpting has come over the years with an early Meier sculpt. Take this one an compare it to his more contemporary works, from Dark Sword Miniatures for example:
       

       
      More oldies coming soon!

      Greetings to those of the Clan Reaper!
       
      I think this has got to be one of the quirkiest figures I've painted, a Chickinasaurus sculpted by Tom Meier from his Sparkle and Savage range, from Theoland! 
       
      I was a bit confused as to what colors to make him, so thinking about chickens, I tried to imitate a nice brown chicken with a green tail, hopefully he turned out okay:
       

       
      a really nice and simple figure to actually paint!
