Good work on him.

 

Asa much as I like a lot of the detail that you can get on newer figures with more modern sculpting techniques, I really like the old figures like this. Like you said, they make for a pretty quick paint job.

Yeah, he’s really just a tunic, cape and belt. He has shoes and his wand and that’s it. The ones in the same blister pack are just about as simple.

Love the shimmery green of the fabric on the cape and the hair in particular

Thanks Iridil, I dont' know if that's the actual paint or the way the picture came out on my cell phone. I'm going to try later to take different pictures with my normal camera.

The contrast looks good for me. I Think Black at one end of the contrast is always a good choice.

Sometimes less details let you focus better on the overall look of a mini. I liked my old 2e Space Marines. An armour, a gun and you were done.

 

You Worte about the Wand. Honestly to me it looks more like something you would find in a Shop for adult toys. This is probably more a Problem of the sculpt and not of the paintjob. But it may be Worth to give it another try.

Eeks, valid point now that I look at it.  I wonder if the jewel at the end of his wand, if I made it green or blue, would dispel that image that I can’t now get out of my head.

I know it's hard, do your best, but if you snap, it's okay!

      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!

      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!
