Female Centaur archer

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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.

      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!

      How would Medusa feel if she couldn't help turning everyone she met to stone?
      Julie Guthrie sculpted this Sad Medusa figure.  It was a special giveaway at the Hall of Fame dinner at ReaperCon in 2015 (...or was it 2014?).
      I painted the figure earlier this year, and she was my entry in the Painters category at the ReaperCon painting contest (Master Series Open).
      I think it was the first resin figure I've painted. 
      Julie sculpted a rattle at the end of the snake tail, so I looked up the colors of diamondback rattlesnakes and took my inspiration from them.
      I glazed and stippled a lot of colors into the stone areas.  They kept looking too much like skin or simply too dull.
      I hope the snakes are placed strategically enough to let this pic stay here....
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      May I present to you; Fewmaster Toede of the Dragon Lance Chronicles.
       
      Sorry, the pictures didn't turn out that well.
      But I'm quite happy with the paintjob.
       
      All kinds of C&C is very welcome.

      This is another of Julie Guthrie's beautiful giant werewolves, part of the Warlord Koborlas faction. This is my second Warlord figure painted. It was an attempt to make a gender-ambiguous werewolf, and as such I shaved down the chest armor a bit. Full WIP here.
       
      Aislinn may be howling or sniffing the air or fighting a giant.  Looking up at any rate.

      This is Julie Guthrie's 14528: Rageclaw Slayer, a very large werewolf (the base is 40 mm).
       
      Oh, and apparently this is the first Warlord figure I've painted.
