Love them all and a great paintjob.

 

One little thing: that Axe Wielder, I don't think it's a mustache, I think it's a piercing maybe bone...Since these are based on Meso American warriors and since it's on the sides and not under the nose?

Hi Glitterwolf!  You might be right, but I have a feeling it was supposed to be one of these little moustaches:

which in any case would have meant I probably should have stayed with a more ruddy skin tone and not go with the "golden skin" approach, but oh well, too late now...

Great work, and I totally see the Cantiflas vibe on the axe guy.  Love the vibrant colors.

Thank you Darcstaar, upon hindsight, he's probably not Asian, but alas....

 

It was fun doing a bunch of different colors.  Sadly it makes me acutely aware of how few bright colors I have available to me sometimes.

Definitely a lot to like, here. Great work on the skin tones...for all four. I'm loving the pops of color on the clothing. As you indicated, such colors don't usually come into play, but they're very appropriate here and work great

Yeah, three of those figures had so much going on with them, it was a pity to not take advantage of all the colors possible. With Cantinflas it was a bit different because he was a far simpler figure.  Two main colors were more than enough with him!

When I paint Meso American Natives I use Reaper Tanned Skin and add a little , little drop of Reaper Terracotta to create a little reddish skintone.

For my Native American skin, I've been using Redstone Highlights as my base color.

So on a day with a bit more sun I took some different pictures with my actual camera. Hopefully these don't look so exaggeratedly contrasted:

and I was able to get a decent group shot too I think:

Hopefully they look a little better!

      A really nice mini! Highlighting the skin was fun! 😁 Thanks for looking!

      Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix.   Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages.  The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well.  Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag.  I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one!
       
      EDIT:  Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:

      Hello my little Rearperlificos!
       
      so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones.  I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur.  I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection.  Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time.  I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off.  Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure:
       
      the female:

       
      The male:
       

       
      and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo:
       

       
      I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......

      So I found these guys at the last NEMPA paint day a I attended a few years back, and decided to paint them up...
      I have many other orcs from this line, but not these guys...
      I even have the Polly S Armor Dark Green paint I used on the others back in High School!
      (I,m class of 1981)
       

      and a close up

       
      So all you Partha lovers chime in with comments and critiques!

      Hello and good evening all you Reaper Maniacs!
       
      So here's a few miniatures I've been meaning to paint but just haven't gotten around to them, you know, too many minis, not enough time.  But I did finally get around to these, which are pretty fun,  Squidmen with Goo Guns, sculpted by Tom Meier when he had the company Thunderbolt Mountains.  These are miniatures that his son had designed.  
       

       
       

       
       

       
      and here they are as the actual group/blister pack they come in:
       
       
       
      Anyhoos, quite enjoyable and reasonably simple to paint, hope you guys and gals all enjoy!
