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!
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!
Good morning Reaperniks!
So I've had this mini painted already about a week, but here in Omaha, it's been mostly kind of cloudy and rainy, so wasn't able to get a decent picture until this morning.
This is Merlyon the Sorcerer, formerly of Thunderbolt Mountain and now being released by Ral Partha Legacy. Pretty fun figure to paint, and it's more akin to that 25 mm of yore:
I still have a few more from this range I want to get around to painting. This one also had the eyeholes poked into the eyes, but they worked out this time pretty simply.
Eyeholes in the owl too!
Anyhoos, please enjoy responsibly!
Thunderbolt Mountain/Ral Partha Legacy Flying Pink Unicorn with Ballerina Fairy, sculpted by Tom MeierBy 72moonglum
So hello all you Reaperphonics!
So finished this one recently. I'd done the other Flying Pink Unicorn, and wanted a slightly different version of pink, so here's what I came up with. This one, like the other fairy ballerinas, was sculpted by Tom Meier inspired by a design from his daughter with his company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and now sold by Ral Partha Legacy. Lots of different pictures because it's mini with basically lots angles, not just front and back, hope not too many photos:
They are the last of my ballerina fairies that I had from Ral Partha Legacy, going to have to now move on to something different I guess, maybe some Reaper Bones.....
Hello all you Reaperoloques, anxiously waiting for your Kickstarter boxes to arrive at your doors!
I got my notice and hopefully I'll be seeing a big, beautiful box of plastic joy this Wednesday! But in the meantime, just plugging away painting...
So I just finished these two Thunderbolt Mountain minis, and if you recall last time, I took y last photos with my new iPhone. I considered doing this again with these two minis, but took photos with my camera and then with the iPhone, and the iPhone photos were too brash or stark, so I'm using the camera photos instead.
First Morgan le Fay:
and then the Lady in Waiting:
Both of these are available again for sale on Ral Partha Legacy's site, and actually they both come in the foot and mounted versions, but way back when, when I bought these, I didn't get the mounted versions, just their standing forms.
Enjoyed doing both of them very much. The only odd thing again were they had those eyes with recesses for the irises, which I don't really like, but at least in this case worked out I think okay. I actually did a base walnut brown cover for the eyes and then when I went over them in white, the recesses remained unpainted and brown, so they turned out okay. I think for the future though, with more of these recessed eyeballs I'll actually paint the color in that section and then go over them again with white.
Another thing to mention is these are true 25 mm figures, when that used to mean something, so these are very small.
Anyhoos, hope you enjoy and these can momentarily distract you whilst you wait for your boxes to arrive!
Happy Independence Day for those gringos that celebrate it, and Happy Sunday for those that don't!
