Ral Partha patriarch, Heritage sorceress, Archive pixie, Minifig elves

Recommended Posts

My significant other was in a chorus competition this weekend, so I didn't get a lot done. Several things are working through the queue for my OLD miniatures project, and I thought that I'd go ahead and post them pre-basing as works in progress.

 

First up is a Ral Partha Patriarch, ES-06. The trim on the tunic is cast in, so I decided to echo it in the cloak. He ends up looking somewhat Roman in the overall purple and white scheme. He's going to need a base scultped with flagstones; my intention is to preserve/incorporate the integral base on figures with base detail.

Next up, from my box of figures "to do" dating back to the '90s when I acquired it from a friend who was a Heritage fan rather than a Ral Partha fan back in the day, is a sorceress. She's one of four figures in catalog number 1206, Female Magic Users, and has the characteristic later Heritage style, a little cartoony, but with some nice animation. I decided to keep the color scheme simple.

This homely fellow is an Archive 650 pixie, who was rescued from my junk box the other week, when I started on this. Without something to show the scale, it's not obvious that he's about 15mm tall, so the shading looks very exaggerated. He's going to need a scenic base with a rock to stand on. I don't want to cut off the original base, so that will be easy to sculpt over the exisiting one than a tree stump, which would be my first choice of a natural pedestal.

Last is a group of three 1974 Minifig elves (ME5). They are also going to need some rocks and brush to fill out a 60mm square army base. The sculpts are typical of Minifigs; not a lot to work with...

My work bench is a bit of a disaster area today, even moreso than usual, but I'm finally back from a business trip and back to work on basing these figures. The sorceress is getting the basic tgrass treatment. The patriarch is getting scultped flagstones, but it looks like it's going to take another layer. The pixie is going to be standing on a rock; I'll have to sculpt his base into it with modeling paste. The elves are popping up from behind a pine bark rock formation.
