A blogging buddy of mine, Kevin Hearne (whom you should all be visiting regularly -- he has at least three urban fantasy novels coming out!), posted some shots of painted miniature Dwarves. When I commented that I once tried painting Dwarves, he asked me to post about it and put up some pics.
Wow. These poor figures have been banged around through around thirty moves, back and forth all over the world, and I haven't looked at them for nearly 30 years! They are lucky to have survived at all. They are dusty and dirty, their paint is faded and sometimes missing altogether. They are pretty sad! However, I used to love them so much.
Please note that I was very poor back then, and I had only a tiny set of cheap paints. I couldn't work the magic that some miniature painters do.
Kevin wanted Dwarves, so here are a couple shots of what has survived (at least somewhat).
Since I found these, I might as well post a few other shots. Here is one of Thor.
He survived a tad better since I had him wrapped up in tissue!
Now a couple of shots of some Napoleonic Age miniatures I did. Sorry I can't get all the dust off of them.
