The faces are awesome!

I'm in awe, these minis are small and yet so much detail in the face!

Wonderful!

Thanks Glitterwolf! Very kind, I really did enjoy doing their faces.  In itself, I'm putting together a little tutorial of sorts on eyes, nothing original, but using these and two other miniatures as examples, and it really is painful looking at your work super close up zoomed in as much as possible I have to say. I'm glad they look a little better a bit further back from the camera!

I wish I could highlight like this especially the blacks. And the expressions on their faces are just awesome! Looking forward to the afore-mentioned tutorial :)

The Dark Haired Beauty is an old favorite; her Blonde Associate is new to me.  In both cases they are LOVELY  creations that bring the old miniatures to a new level. Your deft hand with the brush, eye for colors, & fine basing are OUTSTANDINGVERY WELL DONE!

Thanks Malefactus!  I think Jee-Anna has had a bunch of different incarnations in a bunch of different Partha lines over time, but the blonde chick was only in one set, Bones of the Past, based off that Larry Elmore painting, and I'd honestly only recently found out about it. I really like the figures in this set though. There are three, the scantily clothed one with a flute, no weapon, this gal carrying a sack of something, no weapon, and the other one is an older wizardly gentleman with a staff, no weapon.  All three very cool fantasy figures, but none of the three is packing heat ready for battle.

       So, I was recently asked to curate a collection of old minis given to my FLGS on consignment... There are somewhere north of two hundred pieces altogether.
       
      Most of it is old Ral Partha, Grenadier, Heritage and Citadel. The first three companies I know well. Citadel not so much, but I've already identified some of them from the Lost Minis Wiki. And then there are some that I don't recognize and have no marking on them.
       
      So I'll be posting pics in this thread over the next couple of days to see if anybody knows what they are.
       
       I'll also be editing the posts to update them as more things are identified. So eventually there will be a complete (ish) record of the entire collection.
       
       
       
       First up, we have some dwarves...
       
      EDIT:  In the first pic the first four are from Alternative Armies -  DH9-04 Dwarven Adventurer w/ Dagger, RM013 Auchan the Spiker, RM015 Colvin the Disturbed, and RM014 Luckburn the Iron Fist. The 5th one is Citadel FA-15, v2 and the last one is Asgard's DA7.v2 Dwarf King.
      In the second pic, only the second one is unidentified.
      The first is from Grenadier's 2008 Thieves box set - the Dwarf Thief. The third is from Metal Magic's C1008 Dwarves set and the last is Grenadier's 1129 Dwarf Flamethrower.
       
       
       
       I'll be posting more as I come across things I can't find myself...

      Good morning all,
       
      so here's a Halfling rogue sculpted by Jim Johnson that was put out by Kenzer and Co., and rereleased by Ral Partha recently.  A nice little Hackmaster figure, enjoy him quite a lot, because he's pretty straight forward, kind of iconic-looking Halfling thief. And I've been doing so many greens and such, it was a departure from my woodsy colors, so went for a cloak the color of the Dutch flag and some purple pants.  Enjoy!

      Tom Meier Ral Partha 1981 Celestial Dragon 01-129.  This is one of those miniatures that you see and are in awe, and then when you get it home you can't bear to put paint over the beautiful sculpt.  And then you do, and it looks really bad so you strip it and try again, and again.  This miniature originally came with a gold paste you were supposed to rub on it to give it gold highlights.  That didn't work out too well, as I waited too long and it dried up.  Anyway, with the basing I was trying to give the impression that he is slowly flying along dipping his toes in the water.  It has given me ideas for some future projects.  It's been more than 30 years, but he is finally off of my shelf of shame. 
       
      37 projects left to go...
