Pingo posted a topic in Show OffThis is an old-school heavy-metal style Shadowrun gang member cyber troll, Lord Torgo, formerly of Ral Partha, now sold by Iron Wind Metals, both with the stock number 20-590. Which is to say, he's a cyberpunk miniature from a 1990s vision of the near future full of dystopian tech and magical mutations. He's a huge mutant with horns. Discussion of the figure to follow after the pictures (which now that I see them large are looking in need of some improvement). I did some playing around with texture and color and light effects here. The figure had some interesting details and surface types. Like all old Ral Partha figures, it has an integral base, in this case sculpted paving with some litter already on it. This figure was a pain and a half to assemble. The supplied chain was too short* and needed to be replaced (but I thought a real chain looked better anyway). The axe on his back is ridiculously top-heavy and attaches at two small points well below the center of balance; I added a wire "staple" to help hold it on. I was not able to find any other images of this figure painted online. It might be because It might be because he is so absurdly over the top heavy metal. Or it could be because he is rather fiddly, fragile, and difficult to assemble. The figure is front-heavy and on a narrow base, making it prone to tipping forward, and it hunches forward so it's hard to see the figure properly from a normal gamer's above the table perspective. A WIP thread, covering this figure, Reaper's "50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll," and several other old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures, can be found here. There are other Show Off threads for the companion piece Shadowrunners (mostly trolls): Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and an ork woman street samurai. *This was cached on Google but seems to have vanished in the meantime, which is why I copied it rather than linking. I'm not the only one who found the chain too short:
