And here's a beefier beastman (Q4, C4, Savage, Forester, Heavy Weapon rather than Q4, C3, Savage, Forester like the earlier ones).

Great work!  Some interesting paint jobs on classic miniatures

Thanks!

Here's another shot of the bugbear. It's a fairly primitive sculpt, so less amenable to my speed-painting approach than some. But I like his brutish simplicity.

Gorgeous old school paint jobs.  The shields are particularly good.  Apparently your long sabbatical from painting only sharpened your skill.
This is my boomstick!

Very nice paintwork. If some of those paintjobs are quick ones, what are the slow ones like?

These make me feel nostalgic.

This is meant to be the result of speed painting ?!

Just looked through this thead: Just wanted to say that I absolutely adore your shields!  :-*  Very inspirering: Makes me regret all of those shields which I've just painted with block-colours. Gotta try out something similar for the next couple of guys I paint.

Thanks, everyone! Vanvlak, I'm afraid there are no slow ones: it's always a rush to get them onto the tabletop. I reckon I've finished 200 since mid-July last year, with maybe another 100 underway; I'm much worse at finishing off the ones that are almost there than at starting new ones.

Here's an old genestealer (we stat him as Q2, C4, Long Move, Combat Master for 100 points) and some orcish foes (I have a whole warband of these Orcs of the Pale Serpent almost done, but only two finished.

My son painted this tyrannosaur (with a little guidance; and then I added the stripes and eyes). It's a cheap "paint your own dinosaur" that we got in the British Museum. My daughter is working on the accompanying stegosaurus (now looking good in rusty orange, but she's determined to paint it blue as well ...). The second shot shows it in action.

Some great imagination with those colour schemes - I am so used to seeing LotR minis painted a certain way these are a lovely breath of fresh air. I also like that you call them different to what the minis are actually named by their manufacturers. Not being constrained by conformity makes these minis so much more fun.

Thanks! Little Odo, I have a barely repressed streak of Tolkien purism that causes me to class even the biggest orc as a goblin and even the smallest goblin as an orc. I'm eternally bemused that people never seem to remember that the Uruk-hai were described as "goblin-soldiers" in The Two Towers! I also think that the D&D-style super-stratification of humanoid monsters gets a bit pointless. Having said that, I cheerfully painted up those GW orcs to be SBH hobgoblins, as their clothing seemed to lend itself to a D&Dish samurai colour scheme, allowing them to look more uniform.

DeafNala, thanks for the kind words on the rock. I made him out of Miliput and green stuff almost a quarter of a century ago, but painted him up just last week.

Here are some more night goblins ("fish white" and black under the influence of Alan Garner's svarts; had I remembered the initial influence, I'd probably have given them bronze or stone spearheads, but never mind!). And a Reaper Bones gnoll archer as well: I've since removed that awful mould-line.

More great work. I really love gnoll miniatures but they have never reached the top of my wishlist, You've made them get higher. Time to check to see if the Reaper Bones ones are available. :)
