Amazing, the detail they could put on such tiny figs! And amazing painting!

Yeah, Tom Meier did some great work back then, and even more incredible nowadays!

 All from the same box set, E200 Elves, from the Wizards, Warriors and Warlocks line.

 

 

Thanks Mad Jack, I wasn't aware they all originally came in one set!

Looking great!  My only advice:  The last one has a tassel on her spear shaft.  The color is too close to the spear color, so it gets lost a little.  I’d have painted it green to match the shield, and set it apart from the shaft, while still tying in with the rest of the mini.

I don’t recall a boxed set for these guys.  According to the Lost Minis Wiki (first link), the elf maiden was sculpted by Dennis Mize, which looks reasonable.  The second link does show a few “omnibus” collections of the Wizards, Warriors and Warlocks figures in the 1980 catalog.  RP put together a bunch of “one each” mixed blister packs for roleplaying gamers, and I hadn’t realized that WWW had any.

Yeah, I kind of agree after having seen it, I was going for a light greenish, but should have more contrast with a deeper green or even a blue.  Of course now that I've finished I'm kind of lazy, so probably unlikely that I go back and actually fix it.

I wonder if by boxed he meant a blister? If she was indeed sculpted by Dennis Mize, which stylistically makes sense, then sorry for the error! It's amazing in any case, whether it be Meier or Mize how much their skill levels increased in such a small amount of time!

      Hello all you Reaperloogans!
       
      So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress.  I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her.  She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base.  She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
       
      So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish. 
      Hopefully she turned out okay!

      Good evening Reaperhoochagans!
       
      So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights
       
      So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!
       
      EDIT:  adding a link to the original set of fairies:

      Good evening Reapertons!
       
      So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986.  She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook.  Anyway, showing off new to old:
       

       
      and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
       

       
      and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
       

       
      and here they are all together:
       

       
      So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme.  There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief.   One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing.  Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!

      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 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!
