  1. 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...

    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!
  3. The second figure I painted this week, got quite a lot done. This is one of the Silver and Steel figures from the boxed sets based on Larry Elmore art. Once again, figuring out colors was a pain, especially it took forever for me to figure out what color I was going to paint the little dragon, and in the end, he just turns out to be green. Pale skin, dark hair, hopefully it was a good combination!
  4. Good evening all, so just finished this one, another really fun and adventurous Dwarf sculpted by Jim Johnson back in 2002-2003. Another piece from the Hackmaster line from Kenzer and Company, but was acquired by Ral Partha and now being cast by them. Hopefully dwarfy enough colors, started out with his skin as tanned highlights and gave him some nice black hair. I thought about doing something with the runes on his axe but then just figured I'd leave them as metal. Enjoy!
  5. Hello all, just finished another Ral Partha Hackmaster figure, this time a male dwarf thief, dagger in one hand and crossbow in the other. It's another figure sculpted by the prolific Jim Johnson back in about 2003. For this one, I wanted darker colors, but really the hardest part on him was deciding the line at the edges of his leather jerkin. I had considered red and gold, but then for some reason purple ended up being the color I went with. Enjoy!

    Ral Partha/Hackmaster halfling rogue

    Good morning all, so here's a Halfling rogue sculpted by Jim Johnson that was put out by Kenzer and Co., and rereleased by Ral Partha recently. A nice little Hackmaster figure, enjoy him quite a lot, because he's pretty straight forward, kind of iconic-looking Halfling thief. And I've been doing so many greens and such, it was a departure from my woodsy colors, so went for a cloak the color of the Dutch flag and some purple pants. Enjoy!
  7. This is a conversion of Finari combining her with the horse from Onyx Chevalier, Overlords Solo. The WIP thread is here: WIP Finari Mounted Conversion
  8. Hi all and happy new year! Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter. The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley. Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on. and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher: Anyhow, really enjoyed painting these figures, loads of fun, full of personality and a good hefty size. And they're metal, which is another plus for me!
  9. Kaladrax and the wand of death, turning those it slays into undead horrors. I modified this first edition of 10012, Kaladrax so that it looks like he's giving an order pointing its left index at an enemy or direction. I also converted the bones of the right hand and added a Wand of death in his closed fist. The Wand of death comes from Reaper's 10005, The Court of Abyst boxed set. On the base, I used natural rocks, Army Painter Wasteland Tuft and natural dry lichen as tumbleweed. 10012, Kaladrax the Dire Drake was sculpted by Jim Johnson. The 03815 Skeletal Halfling, 03816 Skeletal Elf, 03817 Skeletal Dwarf and 03820 Skeletal Minotaur were all sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  10. So back in October 2017, the night before my first trip to Reapercon, I happened to be on eBay.ca and randomly stumbled across a Ral Partha Shadowrun Feathered Serpent listed by a seller located in Canada. Being the more unusual all-metal variant, the vast majority of them being resin and Ralidium, it caught my interest. Especially being in Canada, because eBay's global shipping program really ramps up shipping costs so it killed my ability to buy from US sellers except at dire need. However, as I needed all of my hoarded money for ReaperCon and travel expenses, I couldn't buy it right then, so I added it to my watch list. Then I went to ReaperCon and forgot all about it. Shortly after I came back home, very exhausted, I fell asleep on my couch with the 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Masters Guide on my face and woke up around 8 pm. For some reason I felt compelled to check my email, and there was an "item ending soon" notice. So, with 5 minutes to spare, I bought it. Now... my life is weird. Not really super weird, it's just that for some reason my reality operates on the premise of "why do something normal when you can add a weird subplot?" And so it is here, because I discovered that this all-metal beastie was made of lead. I had heard of all-metal Feathered Serpents, but always assumed they were later lead-free production on account of Partha's resin experiment going drastically awry and being unpopular with customers. I had never heard of a lead version, and if asked before getting one I would have guessed such a thing didn't exist. So I had a mystery! To solve this mystery, I needed information. So I started at the first logical place - Lost Minis Wiki, hoping maybe there was a clue to be had. Well, imagine my surprise when the Feathered Serpent there not only resembled mine... it actually WAS mine! The very casting I had in my hands! http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Shadowrun_(Ral_Partha)#10-861 So! Since this creature is presently recorded for posterity as the exemplar on what is currently one of the top resources for old miniatures, and as I am never one to turn away from a weird and convoluted tale, I decided that its long-overdue transition from box to beautiful should also be recorded for posterity. So here we are, and here we go!

    Ral Partha/Hackmaster Gnome Fighter

    So here's an old Hackmaster figure that Jim Johnson sculpted quite a many years ago. I really like it a lot, gives me the feeling with the pick axe of somebody going into a cave for an adventure. I kind of wonder about the shield, as it kind of reminds me of a submarine door, but ultimately it's a pretty cool part of the figure as well. Ral Partha just re-released it with a bunch of other old Hackmaster figures as well!
  12. Here are some "large" pictures of my entry for the Facebook Paint Your Dragon Reaper Group Painting Contest. I slightly modified the pose of this first edition 10012, Kaladrax so that it looks like he's pointing its left arm finger at an enemy or direction. I also converted the bones of the right hand and added a Wand of Orcus in his closed fist. The Wand of Orcus comes from Reaper's 10005, The Court of Abyst boxed set. On the base, I used natural rocks, Army Painter Wasteland Tuft and natural dry lichen as tumbleweed. I also used Milliput putty to build the dunes before covering them with sand and crackle paste to create dry soil. Kaladrax the Dire Drake was sculpted by Jim Johnson. Comments and critiques are always very welcome.
  13. So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white. With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out. Here is the link to the third miniature: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG And here is the photo this figure came from: And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?
  14. Hello all, so here are two figures I just finished recently from Ral Partha. The first one is from the Larry Elmore set Bones of the Past, I think sculpted by Jeff Grace, which was based off a painting Larry Elmore did I think perhaps for a book cover. I tried to actually use the same color scheme on my mini as showed up in the painting, but I ended up changing up the belt because in the painting it was red and she already had red details and pants. I did the other figure a wile back ago, the gal with the purse, loincloth and little else. Here's the link to that one: I think, that linked up okay. Then here is another figure I did, Jee-Anna the armored warrior priest (ess) a figure sculpted by Jim Johnson quite a while back ago. I really like this figure and wanted to give her just dark, blacks and greys, so hopefully with this color scheme I ended up getting what I wanted. With the base, I ended up sculpting some more stones because it was one of those stone floor bases. Anyway, hope you enjoy them!

    10020, Marthrangul

    Here are some new pictures of my Marthrangul Dragon. You can also see more pictures here : Marthrangul WIP.
  16. So here's the figure I was talking about in another post, where I was lamenting about sealants and how they sometimes rubbed off details of my photos. I tried a new method though, and I think I've hopefully solved the problem. Here is the Ral Partha Female Barbarian with Short Sword, which was sculpted by the great Jim Johnson, and which was inspired from a Larry Elmore painting called Warband. Back then in the day, Partha did an entire box of figures dedicated to the painting. This is one of them, even though I didn't follow the painting's color scheme. ​I took a few pictures of her from a few different angles because she's not so flat and I think it helps appreciate the figure. Anyhoos, enjoy!

    02478 - Gregor the Wizard

    I give you, Eldrin of the North with his trusty familiar, Poe. This has been one of my favorite sculpts for a long time. Though I have painted several pieces to date, I had a hard time deciding on a color pallet to use. Since I began playing FrostGrave, I have wanted to paint up a wizard to lead my band of treasure seekers, one that fits the frigid climate. The vines around his staff are meant to emulate the fall colors, leading into winter. I hope you enjoy! **EDIT** Here are a couple of updated pictures. I didn't want to try to tackle freehand just yet, as I have not been overly successful with it to date. However, the one thing I can't seem to catch is subtle shift in color on the cloak. The base is a light grey, wet-blended out to white through Bleached linen. CAH
  18. So here are the last bunch of figures I've finished up, trying to get them squeezed in before vacation. These I think are from the nineties, and quite a many years ago I painted three of the four, I actually ended up using the same color scheme I'd used previously for the most part. The only one I hadn't painted before, I think because I never got around to it, was the bouncer. At the moment I haven't yet put them on bases, maybe after I get back from vacation. I kind of like them without bases, but prefer bases just to keep them from falling over. These figures were sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the great and I think underrated Partha and Reaper sculptors with so many figures sculpted for both companies. ​Enjoy!
  19. So I just got done painting four older figures that Jim Johnson sculpted back in the 90's, and I've really always liked his work. He's an extremely prolific but I think underrated sculptor, who does beautiful work and has a very distinct style. My question is, does anybody know anything about him? You can usually dig up a little bit of information on sculptors on the internet when you're curious, like Tom Meier, Dennis Mize, Sandra Garrity, Julie Guthrie, but I haven't been able to find anything about Jim Johnson. I don't know if it's because his name is so common or if there's just not a bunch of information out there lauding his sculpting abilities. Anybody know anything or have any information? I'm just kind of curious....

    77358: Anhurian Bowmen

    A quick paint job on these guys... Mostly finished in April, then I finally got the bases done in May. And that's pretty much the extent of my painting for those two months.

    77359: Anhurian Spearmen

    Continuing my quest to paint things quickly and decently rather than trying for absolute perfection. Once again hit project fatigue right near the finish line, so a few things are goofy, but... meh. Good enough. Would still appreciate feedback, of course! Especially since I have another 3 of these guys to do soon(ish). Front view: And from the back: I did boil them and get the spears straightened out, but they kinda sagged a bit again. Such is life, I suppose.

    77356: Anhurian Swordsman

    Hey look, I actually finished some minis! ... well, other than sealing them. But that can wait a bit, these guys aren't going to see any use for at least a week at this point, and I just want to call them done. So, yeah. The shields are boring, and I know there's a lot of stuff I could have done a LOT better, but the point of these guys was to get 'em done quick and move on with my life. So, they're done and I'm moving on with my life. Not too bad though, all things considered. They're intended for use as Frostgrave soldiers, not as display models, so I think I struck a decent balance between expediency and painting. Could definitely use some tips for next time around though.. I have another few batches of anhurians (including another batch of swordsmen!) to get through in the next while, and I'd appreciate suggestions on how I might make them better without really stretching out the painting time too much. (The bases are weird, I know. I was experimenting with my Basius pads and kinda borked them, then got crazy with the paint, and finally just slapped a wash on them and called it done. )

    Anhurian Guards - Bones 2

    I quickly did these right before ReaperCon to have enough minis finished for the resolution painting challenge for April. Hopefully my players will be amused by the shields. (For those not familiar, a red circle with a white dash is used on Do Not Enter signs in the US and perhaps elsewhere.)
