    Imps

    These are a couple from my shelf of shame. They're 1978 Ral Partha gargoyles now produced by Iron Wind Metals. I originally thought they were some sort of Imp and started painting them that way. Then I discovered what they were and put them aside until I could strip them and start over. Then I decided I liked them better as imps so I gave them each about 5 minutes of attention and now they're ready to start tormenting my players.
  2. Some Battletech stuff, painted in the colors of the Atrean Dragoons of the Free Worlds League. Orion: Trebaruna: Carronade:

    Shadowrun Hobgoblin from Ral Partha

    So here is my second hobgoblin that I've completed. I've actually got a pile of six hobgoblins, the Reaper Archer, this one and four Hackmaster Hobgoblins. Every so often I try to work on figures with at least some similar color schemes to make me work a bit more efficiently. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. With all the hobgoblins, their biggest commonality was the skin tones, after that they kind of branched out. Anyhows, here's hobgoblin number two, from a set of Shadowrun Metahumans. The set came with two gnomes (that I've already posted) and a cyclops which I'll get worked on after I'm hobgoblinned out. This guy ended up being pretty colorful. I had a full mohawk to work with so I had to throw some color into that! with those side lines of hair, I wasn't sure if those were supposed to be hair or some kind of cyborg cables, but in the end I opted for hair. Gave me a chance to throw a bit more color around! Enjoy!
  4. What a find! I stumbled across this guy at a little hole in the wall second hand store. Not bad for $5! The box lid was missing, but I knew exactly what it was once I saw it. One of the dragons horns was broken, and I decided to leave it. Some time ago I painted the Ral Partha version of this exact model. (It’s posted in the forum, but I don’t know how to attach, and that kinda wizzy computer stuff). Anyway I told myself when I painted the Ral red, “I wish I could get another and paint it blue”. While I’m still partial to my red, this blue is pretty nice! As always C&C welcome and appreciated. I hope you like it.
  5. Good morning everybody! So just finished painting this one Friday I think, and getting around to posting him. This one I think is one of Ral Partha's older Citadel crossovers, where something happened wherein Partha had to rescuplt new versions of some Citadel pieces. I think this was probably one of them not sure of the actual origin, and really not sure of the sculptor. I think It's Bob Charette, because there are similar faces with some other minis, but this is yet to be confirmed. Anyhoos, fun figure to paint, not a super svelte, big-boobed super model, and a very flat figure, but fun armor, shield and personality. Color choice as always was a big issue, had no idea what colors to do her. She got tanned skin because I was painting her with some other figures, plus she's a warrior, so she probably runs around outside a lot. The red hair? Why not is the only answer I can come up with. The hardest part of this one, was her upper lip, because she really didn't have much of one. So hope that turned out okay. In any case, enjoy!
  6. Hello guys and gals, here's a new figure I just finished, a Ral Partha figure from the eighties, a female warrior, kind of a bit barbaric, with axe and shield. As Always, deciding just simple things like colors were kind of more time consuming than they should have been. I did her hair black because I'd seen the same model very nicely painted and done blonde and didn't want to copy. This was sculpted by the great Julie Guthrie, sculpting goddess. Also had no idea what color the shield should have been so eventually and randomly chose green! Anyhoos, enjoy!
  7. So continuing on with my theme of black pants and clothing, and trying to stay in certain color schemes to make my life a tad more efficient, here is the other Monk/Martial Artist I finished basing last night. He has the same black pants more or less that the Brue Lee figure had, also nunchuks, and also ready to beat a wrongdoer into submission. This one is from the Hackmaster line that Ral Partha has brought back, sculpted in 2003 (I checked the bottom before I put him on his base) by Jim Johnson. Another fun and simple figure, not too many dingly danglies, just a man, his pants, a European shoulder bag, and a few weapons. I kind of wish his wrist bands had turned out a little bit better metalwise, but oh well, he's done and I'm not going back, too many things pending...
  8. So from my painting fervor, this is the third miniature I finished this last week, and I think my favorite. I actually took pictures of him yesterday to post, but when I looked at the pictures close up, I noticed he actually had a blade of grass on his head, right where his hair part was, so ended up having to re-photograph him. This figure came from the Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals Chaos Wars Kickstarter and Tom Meier sculpted up two new elves for them, in the 25 mm scale that the other elves were done in (other figures that he had sculpted 30-40 years ago). There was a comparable figure he had done that was also and elf with an axe and shield that some day I'd like to paint as well, but here is his modern version of it. I really wanted to give his hair and skin a pale, ethereal look and wanted the colors too to not be to harsh with the clothing and weapons. I was surprised that he ended up actually being a pretty easy figure to paint, despite the small size. The only difficult part of this mini in all honesty was his eyes, which Tom Meier kind of made "proportionate", so they weren't exaggeratedly large like lots of figures are sculpted with. This has both good and bad parts. The good of course is you have a beautifully proportionate figure, the bad of course if you have to see what you can do with this little pindrops of eyes. I think I actually managed to do okay with them. I considered eye brows but then in the end decided against it, figuring in theory they would be such a light color they would hardly show anyway. And to give you a size of this miniature, here's a comparison shot against a US quarter: After painting this figure, it really puts me in the frame of mind that I'd like to paint more of Meier's contemporary stuff, like what he's done for Dark Sword for example.

    Hackmaster / Ral Partha Male Cleric

    Hi guys! So I've had a bit of time this week to do quite a bit of painting, so here is one of three figures I've finished recently. It's another one of the Hackmaster figures recently acquired by Partha, a Cleric sculpted by Jim Johnson back in 2003. As always, hardest thing to figure out was the color scheme, but I think it kind of worked out reasonably well. Chain mail is kind of a pain it seems, because as many times I gave them a coat and a wash, I can still see some little wholes. Oh well, must just accept it!

    Iron Wind Metals Slassan (67-108)

    I need this guy for my D&D game, so he got a speed paint finish this week. The WIP is here: Slassan WIP
  11. Iron Wind Metals Slassan [67-108] Another project from my shelf of shame, now trying to get it done in a rush. I started this guy about a year ago. He is one of the end bosses in my current D&D campaign. I thought I had longer to get him done so I kept putting him aside. Darn players keep making progress in the adventure though, so now I'm in a bit of a rush. Slight progress today. Improved the painting stand he is attached to and he is much easier to hold now. Also added another layer of blue. He is going to be the ocean blues triad with red hair triad markings on his back and legs on a glowing dark purple base. Colour wheel, please don't fail me now!

    Iron Wind Metals Sibeccai Runethane

    Iron Wind Metals [67-024] Sibeccai Runethane. This one is from my shelf of shame. I have several of these that I intended to do up in different colour schemes for my D&D game. This was the 11th one of 13 and he got abandoned some time last year. I needed something to practice lighting on and he was already primed and 'basecoated' (not really, he was a mess) so he was the winner. The main problem I have been having is with very rough surfaces from the spray primer. Once I am through my shelf of shame I will probably never use it again. I am now very happy to have brush on primer. He's meant to look like he's lunging out of the shadows towards a campfire, keeping his glowing green sword hidden behind his back.
  13. WIP Link Somehow I forgot to cross post her from WIP to Show Off. Here she is. This was my sky-earth-non-metallic-metal learning project.

    67-025 Female Giant Warmain

    Female Giant Warmain (large) [67-025] I'm working on this to practice senmm while I'm trying to figure out my other project. Horizons on the armour are mostly marked. I'm going to try something that was suggested to me and make the earth reflection colours mirror the ground colours. She also has a small section of chain metal so I'll see if I can make that work out a bit better this time.

    67-024 Male Sibeccai Runethane

    Because sibeccai are cool.
  16. I needed to paint a tartan. The miniature and the reason are here: 02178 Knight Templar with Royal MacKenzie Tartan Painting a tartan in detail would be very hard. Here is the source material picture I worked from. Most of the tutorials I looked at involved painting a black grid and then painting in each square individually. I'm too lazy, was in too much of a hurry and don't have the quality of eyesight for that. My daughter who is a highland dancer and water colour painter helped me figure it out. We figured out which of the lines of the tartan would actually be visible at arm’s reach. Then we worked out which colours are forming those lines. Tartans aren't generally composed of stripes of solid colours. The colours come from the mixing of two colours of wool interwoven. So, we worked out which two colours were involved in each stripe. For example, red and green give you brown. So, by putting a stripe of green glaze over red basecoat, I get a brown stripe. If I put a second green stripe over the red at a 90 degree angle, I get another brown stripe, but where the two cross I get a green square with crisp corners. I put a thinned dot of the green in the middle of that square to deepen the green colour, and voila, a cross hatch of brown stripes and green squares on red. Then I sketched a map of it, noting that the tartan is not a perfectly spaced grid, and selected colours which when added together will produce the colours needed. The map: This proved to be still too difficult to paint clearly, so the number of thin lines was further reduced for simplicity. I started with a red basecoat and gave it minimal highlighting and shading. Then I started with one black line running parallel to the characters belt, midway between hem and belt. This is marked on the photo below. This gave me the line from which to measure out and place all the other lines. After that it was, in order: - green horizontal stripes - green vertical stripes - enhance green squares - black lines. The lines in the source material are not actually black, they are sets of black lines and blue lines. So each black line was traced over with blue as well to tone it down a bit and give a slight blue hue. It may not seem like much, but the before and after change was remarkable. Then the very thin yellow lines, with paint thinned somewhat. Finally a yellow dot at the intersection of the yellow lines. Here's a close-up with the starting line marked. It doesn’t look very good up close, but it looks good from a distance. Looks pretty good in other colours, too. Iron Wind Metals 67-005 Female Sibeccai I have some miniatures on the way in the mail which I had intended to use for practicing tartan and other free hand designs. I will post one as a step by step at a later date. Geoff

    Grand Mystic - Iron Wind Metals

    A request was made to paint this guy and the Legendary Dragon Slayer Dwarf to match. I think I did pretty good. They look like they go well together. Talk to the hand
  18. Been a long time since I've posted anything, been going through my collection of Battletech stuff. A lot is old Ral Partha unseen, these ones are the newer Iron Wind resculpts. I really didn't like the 1st Marik Militia color scheme when I started, I just wanted to do a "purple" Marik unit, but it grew on me and now these are some of my favourites. Currently working on a Comstar company. Having a lot less fun with that. Flat white color schemes are not a strong point of mine. ;P Getting better though.
  19. Hi guys, So I just finished this figure this weekend. This is a Hackmaster Female Gnome Illusionist from a line that was created for the Hackmaster Role Playing Game, but was recently acquired by Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha. It's a pretty nice little series of figures with an old school vibe and some interesting creatures. This is the only one I really have at the moment and decided to paint her up. I painted a version of this figure a long time ago, but not too too long ago got a hold of another copy. So here's the most recent version: and here is my original version, which I painted probably almost ten years ago I'm guessing: I'm kind of torn between the two. I think I like the color patterns all bright and such with the freehand ghosts, but at least from a painting aspect, even though not as colorful, the newer one I like probably a bit better. Way back when I had the conception from the Monster Manual that gnomes were grey with white hair and while I have overcome that conception, I was still living in that state of mind when I painted her the first time. Anyhow, there they are, enjoy!

    Ral Partha Dwarven Engineers

    Good evening all, so I finished these two this morning, that come from an old Ral Partha set called I think Dwarven Steam Cannon, that was resurrected in a recent Ral Partha Kickstarter. I don't have the actual steam cannon, but I do have two of the three dwarves that operate the contraption, which are here: I made them pretty much the same color of uniform, because they are running the same big machine, just varying essentially their hair color. They do both have eyes and they are painted, but they are under those furrowed hairy brows. Here they are together: There is a third engineer, who is actually working, he's got a shovel and he's picking up coal, but that's a figure I just don't happen to be the proud owner of. I'll have to pick that one up one of these days to complete my little trio of dwarves. Remember that these are old school Partha, so they are pretty small sized figures. They probably take up about 1/3 to 1/4 the lead of a modern dwarf these days and are probably about 20 mm tall. I really do like these figures, as they are some of the few non-bellicose figures from that time, no weapons, just working (even though they are running a cannon). Anyhow, simple paint jobs, and I hope you enjoy them!
  21. Well, here's another started project. Ral Partha OOP White Dragon. You saw him before and after his dunking. Here he is rebuilt and ready for a bit more sanding, a bit more detail to the base and then priming. No great conversion or adjusting. Just a better assembly, slightly larger base (2 inches square now) and this time cleaned up a lot more. Enjoy and Stay Tuned.
