Heritage 1089 Stone Troll, 1312 Treeman, Ral Partha ES-4, -9, -43 and -49

Recommended Posts

Inspired by a few different events, I've been working lately toward staging a game with vintage figures next year.

 

Here are a few recent completions:

These two are the Heritage figures, both from around 1976. The stone troll on the left came to me, to my surprise, in an eBay package which was not well photographed. I don't think I ever saw one back in the day. The treeman I've seen before.

 

The troll is quite a large chunk of lead. Here he is with a Ral Partha human, for scale:

I also finished four Ral Partha figures, all from the ES (Personalities and Things That Go Bump in the Night) range. The Tree Shepherd (ES-49) and the dismounted armored knight (ES-43) jumped the queue because they looked pretty simple. The other two are more in line with my plan to do ES-1 to ES-64 more or less in order.

I like the look of those oldies.

 

Maybe newer sculpts are more detailed, but these do have lots of character.

I've told you this already Rob, but I'll say it again, love the grey bark color and love the nipples! At this rate you're going to have the Personalities figures done really quickly!

I think I'm gonna start a collection of phrases called "You can only say this on the Reaper boards with getting slapped or arrested"  :blush:

 

Nice job on some old school figs.  I have a really hard time trying to paint those, they just bust my OCD in the chops.  I have admiration for anyone who can.

Just to clarify...is that a topless male?

Yes. :) it's one of several early Ral Partha's based on Frazetta paintings; I suspect it was determined they didn't have rights to use the images, and changes were made. This one is from a Conan book cover, as I recall.

      So here is my second hobgoblin that I've completed. I've actually got a pile of six hobgoblins, the Reaper Archer, this one and four Hackmaster Hobgoblins.  Every so often I try to work on figures with at least some similar color schemes to make me work a bit more efficiently.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  With all the hobgoblins, their biggest commonality was the skin tones, after that they kind of branched out.
       
      Anyhows, here's hobgoblin number two, from a set of Shadowrun Metahumans.  The set came with two gnomes (that I've already posted) and a cyclops which I'll get worked on after I'm hobgoblinned out.
       

       
      This guy ended up being pretty colorful.  I had a full mohawk to work with so I had to throw some color into that! with those side lines of hair, I wasn't sure if those were supposed to be hair or some kind of cyborg cables, but in the end I opted for hair. Gave me a chance to throw a bit more color around!
       
      Enjoy!

      This was maybe the 7th mini outside of a box game I ever bought. He came with a coffin, which I can't find but know I still have. I went a little outside my usual Witch/Vampire Hunter color scheme to instead paint him in my own usual "uniform"...

      Hi everyone, here is the wolf model from Ral Partha's TSR D&D 10-512 Monsters Boxed Set produced in 1992.
      I painted this one a while ago. It's a 25mm scale metal "lead" miniature that was sculpted by Richard Kerr.

      Good morning all,
      so hope all you that hail from the land of the Gringo are having a beautiful long weekend, I know I am, with lots of turkey and then rampant capitalism.
       
      So I finished this one last night, and just got him photographed, a Ral Partha Shadowrun Street Samurai, sculpted by Tom Meier, no idea when, late eighties/early nineties:
       

      Whenever I pull these things off their bases there is always a little piece of paint that pops off the back that I never quite catch until it's too late, but never quite care enough to fix.
       
      Anyhow, enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

      Good day everyone, here is the second Orc model from Ral Partha's 10-512 Monsters Boxed Set produced in 1992.
      It's a 25mm tall metal "lead" miniature that was sculpted by Jeff Wilhelm and I painted it with acrylics and ink.
      I have the Roman crest helmet on this model. I painted the crest in orange, as if it had been made with the red hair of a dwarf.
      There is also an eye engraved on the front of the helmet, symbol of Gruumsh. Tribute to Tolkien...
