Chaoswolf

Ral Partha Female Fighter

Recommended Posts

I like it. I miss the old Ral Partha stuff. I'm so happy Reaper is still doing it, I wish the other companies were still out there making mini's also. 

 

Looking forward to to seeing the counterpart to this figure.

Thank you!

 

And Brother Jim is right; Iron Wind Metals makes/carries a lot of the old RP stuff. I haven't ever looked to see if they have these figures, though.

 They don't...

 

These were AD&D-branded figures... 11-030 Fighters in Plate with Axe...

 

 

Only the last two sets - 11-034 and 11-035, which were never released under TSR - made it into the regular Ral Partha catalog, and are available from IWM.

Very cool, waiting for her male partner to be finished!

 

I worked on him a little last night, so it shouldn't be much longer.

Great work, Chaoswolf!

 

And, as much as I like Reaper's excellent, dynamic, modern sculpts, there's something about these understated old 1980s minis that I miss.

 

I'd love to see a collection of Reaper Bones minis in these male/female matched pairs for such a broad variety of race/class combinations, either in Reaper's trademark style or in a pastiche of that old 1980s style.  It's probably not for everyone (and, to be fair, probably not even a profitable idea), but those Ral Partha sculpts in this series were some of my first minis way back in my early mini-painting/collecting days, and the idea of a Bones collection of similar sets really tickles my sense of nostalgia!

 

Another thing that I'm sure I'm not the first to notice:  I can enjoy a buxom-babe-in-a-chainmail-bikini as much as the next guy, but that 1980s Ral Partha female fighter and similar figures in that line had some fairly realistic proportions and some fairly practical armor and weapons, and with about 30 or 40 years of hindsight, it's actually kind of cool.  She'd actually rather stand out for those reasons alone among a typical collection of modern gaming miniatures....

Nope. He's done, I've just been too lazy to take pics...

I'll try to fix that this weekend.

      Hi guys,
      so here's a figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha Saturday Night Fever Samurai, who I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's based on John Belushi.  Pretty straight forward figure to paint, and I wanted to give him more of a five o'clock shadow (thanks Patrick for the advice) but I just gave it to him where it was actually kind of sculpted in.  I looked at a few reference pictures of John Belushi in his Samurai suit, but eventually went a slightly different route to give a bit more color to him. I tried to get a little bit of heat from his cigar too, don't know if you can notice a bit of red and yellow by the ash?
       

       
      Anyhows, I hope you guys all enjoy this little blast from the past!

      Good evening folks,
       
      So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so.  I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.
