I’ve been painting a lot of Old West figures lately, but while waiting on some coats of paint to dry, I worked on some fantasy figures as well. I finished 4 for this post – 3 figures are from Reaper and one is from Lucid Eye.
Josephine was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I painted her in a pale green almost white dress with a strong green cloak. She is in Reaper’s Dark Heaven Legends Line.
I think I have at least 10 of these. Many years ago I got a bid fed up with the lack of female figures in GWs Warhammer game and started adding minis from other lines into my armies. At first there was an outcry that Warhammer should be played with only GW figures – I pointed out that many of the gamers used Ral Partha monsters instead of the GW monsters and many used proxies in place of miniatures – “Now, Elaine, that unit of four Bloodletters is actually 10 Bloodletters and the Coke can is a Greater Demon of Chaos.” I was getting a bit tired of Warhammer & the whole GW hobby marketing and would soon put away all of my figures for a little over a decade.
Liara Silverrain was also sculpted by Sandra Garrity and is in Reaper’s Dark Heaven Legends Line.
Lucid Eye Amazon with Blowgun
At last year’s Lone Star Game Expo, I purchased Lucid Eye’s Amazons. There are seven of them at this time. Instead of going with the Greek Amazon theme, Lucid Eye chose the Jungle Forest Amazon theme. Most of them have bows, but one, the one I’ve finished has a blowgun.
As of this post, the count toward this year’s miniature painting goal stands at 179.

What’s up with the weather? We have had a very rainy June in Dallas this year. We’re usually bone dry and suffering 100+ degree days by now.
