Alright, boys and girls! Due to some acquisitions during Christmas, I've come into possession of some older figures. While I could probably slog through all the internets to figure out what they are, I believe it to be far faster to harness your collective smartiness to ID them: Here are the figures in question:

What we have here is a 1979 Ral Partha, one unknown, and one 1984 Grenadier. I have absolute faith that the lot of you will be able to identify them. Feel free to ask questions about them if it'll help you. Time starts....*clicks stopwatch*....Now.

The 1984 Grenadier one on the right is a female elf fighter with a unicorn device on her shield. Still working on an id number.

The center one strikes me as a late 70s to early 80s release of a warrior of Gondor, the White Tree on his shield.  Can't quite put my finger on it, though.  Is there a manufacturer symbol or SKU on the edge of the base?  There's a bit of a flat spot in one photo, but I can't read anything from it.  Might be nothing.

 

Left side - still digging through catalogs, trying to find a match.

I love looking for old minis!

 

I have a lot of vintage catalogues in PDF format now.

Searching for minis to identify almost always triggers my Figmentia..wait..can I still buy one of those..?

 Well, between Iron Wind Metals for the Parthas and Mirliton for the Grenadiers, the answer is often "Yes", lol...

      So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line

       
      As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it.
       
      So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!

      Here is the Drow Captain from the Grenadier Action Art: Monsters set. See my previous thread for the Thief Assassin to see the Painting Guide color recommendations.

      Back in the early 80’s, Grenadier put out a few “learn to paint” type mini kits, much like the few Reaper has done. They were called Action Art and came with 11 or so minis each. This guy is from one such set. I’ve painted him as recommended in the “Action Art Painting Guide.”
       
      He is small, even for the early days of 25mm sculpts. So he’s shrimpy, yet buff. Enjoy.

      So I continue painting Shadowrun figures, really enjoying them a lot! 

      Tonight's figure is another mage, a Corporate Mage with staff.  I see a few spots I'm not too fond of, but overall not too disappointed. I actually like how her black leather boots turned out!
       
      An odd little aspect of the figure is that curly, frizzy hair she has.  I've seen a number of Dennis Mize sculpts with that hair style. Not really sure why he did that. It was suggested to me that it's because he used often the same heads over again, but still makes me wonder why he did the frizz in the first place

       
      Working on her at the same time as I've been working on another gal with the same flesh tones, so hopefully I'll have another one ready soon!

      Good evening everybody!
       
      So just finished another Shadowrun figure, a Street Mage with a Moon Staff. I'm not sure if the sculptor is Dennis Mize, I'm almost sure it is, but her face is a little different than a typical Mize piece.  
       
      I'm going to eventually paint the entire set she came with, a bunch of Street Mages, which is why I didn't actually put her on a base, but rather painted the one she came with. It's pretty large and stable and when the other three are finished I'll want to photograph them all together, and if they're all on bases, they might not fit comfortably in the photo.  So more to come!  Really enjoying these Shadowrun figures. 
      This figure I like in particular because it kind of could fit just about anywhere, she could be fantasy without any guns or modern weaponry or technology tying her down,  or she could still fit in with the "post-modern" Shadowrun vibe.
       

       
      I may end up basing her eventually, because I really do prefer figures be on bases because they wouldn't be touched so much.
       
      So, anyhows, hopefully you like her!
