Female Centaur archer

14 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

here's my lastest venture, a female centaur archer from the glorious Ral Partha eighties. Another old classic from Julie Guthrie, it's taken me a while to finish as we've been working on a lot of other things at home, but now back into the painting mode again. Hope you like!

Mark

Oooh, she's fantastic. I love your color choices. The white is really well done.

 

Given the scale creep since then, what size base is she on? I imagine she might be a halfling/pony centaur by today's scale standards?

That's many multiples better than the painted job used in the RP catalog.

Interesting use of muted colours. Works quite well. Very nice!

Nice work! I really like the skin and the horse body. Also like that the human hair and the horse's tail and the bits around the hooves are the same color.

Hey that's nice... Love the base work the most... The creamy color of her "horse half" is really nice. Like butta.

 

Cool stuff.

Thanks guys for all the nice comments! I tried to keep the colors natural, earthy tones and I wanted to make sure she looked really tan because she's galloping around outside all day long basically. I did want also a slightly different color than the typical brown for her horsey parts.

 

The base is one of the Warmachine 50 mm bases. For being an old Julie Guthrie Ral Partha figure, she's actually surprisingly large, not gargantuan, but this seems to have been the best base to fit her on.

 

I've also got the other old Julie Guthrie female centaur, the frolicky, naked one, but I just can't seem to find her for whatever reason. I've got her primed and on a base when I do finally hunt her down, and I've got the male companions to the female ones. The only problem is my male frolicking centaur has a smashed nose, so would probably have to whip out the green stuff to do a bit of repair work first.

It's a really nice example of a limited palette. The range of colors is small, but they are used with sensitivity and intelligence.

Thanks Pingo! It's not that often that I'm described as sensitive AND intelligent in the same sentence. Actually, never....

      So, using this new version of the forum, very exciting!
      So just got these two finished last night and photos taken this afternoon.  Two pretty simple figures, I actually chose them because they were simple, kind of a "between projects" little paint job, and the added bonus was that they were mostly skin and cloth, very little armor, which is somewhat traumatizing.
      Reasonably happy on how they turned out.  For the thief, her eyes were very deeply set, like some of Dennis Mize's figures are, so once I was actually able to get an eyeball into her, I didn't try to add an additional color or anything And the thief looks a little angry, but I think it's more the sculpt than my paint job, but who's to say for sure? and she has darkish skin and Dark hair, so dark brown eyes weren't too much of a stretch on her anyway.
      These two came from an old Silver and Steel Partha set from Ral Partha, the sets that were full of Larry Elmore beauties.  For the mage, I didn't really go into it with any preconception of colors, so who knows where the reds and pinks came from, but I think it turned out kind of nicely, with vibrant colors instead of blah ones. So anyways, enjoy!

      Knarthex sent me a few Ral Parha Pirates for my Lost World Project.
      Thx George!
       
      So I painted the first one up as Old Nedd from my stories.
      Here he is on a resin jungle base, ready to seek out gold.
       
      For those interested the WIP is here:

      Here's 01539, Gil the Chibi Sea Monster aka Chibi Tiik, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
       
      I converted this one so he will look like a deep sea monster more than a swamp monster. The idea for the modification came to me after seeing a psychedelic painting of the Creature from the black lagoon. The light effect on the face inspired me to convert Gil into a Tiik "deed sea monster" like creature with the light from his lure lighting up its face. So was born Chibi Tiik. Here's the link to the Converting/Painting WIP.
       
      I hope you'll enjoy. As always, comment and critics are very welcome.
