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!

      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!

      This was a fun little project from earlier this spring.  I added a branch to her tree to give it more dimension and more places to glue "leaves" to.

      Hello Reaperlonians!
       
      Here's one I just finished, a pretty simple miniature, Whaleboy, from Tom Meier's Sparkle and Savage range with Thunderbolt Mountain, that he sculpted for his kids. There's a Squidboy too that I hope to get painted one of these days:
       

       
      A very enjoyable figure to paint!

      So hello there all you Reaperlies!
       
      So here is Squidboy, a figure sculpted by Tom Meier originally for his Thunderbolt Mountain range and currently available out at Ral Partha Legacy.
       
      The hardest thing with this figure was to figure out what color are squids and eventually made him pink.
       

       
      Judging by his t-shirt, I have a feeling he is supposed to be the archenemy of Whaleboy, in a recent posting of mine.
       
      Anyways, please enjoy!

      When I went to paint this figure, I started to see all the little details on the figure. This is no Tinkerbell. The thigh high leather boots, the decorative skulls, and the almost drawn dagger really say "Back off man or I'll cut you!"
      I still think she needs a little work. The scabbard is blah because I wasn't sure what color to use. I think the dark brown on the wings need some highlights also. 
      Some of the shiny leather tracks well on the legs and I like the face so that made me happy.
