  1. Hmmm. seems to be something different. Hippocampus (according to google images, anyway) seems to have the hindquarters of a fish. The model I have is best described as a horse-bodied Unicorn (including mono-horn), though with scales.


    Perhaps a ki'rin? Chinese unicorn. Looks more like a seahorsy-lion than an equine.

    Thank you! That's it.

    It's this model (not hers - I'll photograph hers and get it up later today or tonight.) Now I just need to ID the manufacturer (and possibly the sculptor)

    Thank you all so much for taking the time to help. Gotta love this community!

    ...and here we are. Thanks eBay!

    Ral Partha KI-RIN 02-951

    Not a worry mate - I appreciate the help either way. :)

  2. Hi all,

    My wife recently finished painting an older miniature that I bought her years ago. It's basically a "Water unicorn", but I'm trying to ID it before posting pics (so I can post it nicely as a finished, painted model, rather than as a "please ID this figure" post. I was hoping that some of the D&D experts here might be able to tell me the D&D name and perhaps the "Reaper Miniatures" name of such creatures so I can find and ID the model. I'm not 100% sure it's a Reaper model (it's pretty old) but it's either Reaper or possibly Ral Partha. I don't think it's old enough to be Grenadier, but who knows?


    many thanks!

  3. Another old Troll today.


    This figure is one of Michael Perry's efforts that redefined the look of Warhammer Trolls back in 1992 for 4th Edition. So leaving that narrow era of 3rd that "purists" feel is "Oldhammer". With 4th Edition WHFB, the armies began to be overhauled and have their looks unified in many ways, putting an end to the "rough and ready" and slightly chaotic look that forces and their ranges had previously.




    The old C20 trolls were retired and replaced with the new "Stone Trolls" and "Swamp Trolls", sculpted by Michael Perry. Although the Swamp Trolls were superseded a few years ago by the plastic River Trolls, four of the original six of these Stone Troll sculpts are even still available today, some 23 Years later, including this guy.That's one hell of a distinguished time of service on this model.




    I first started on this guy 5+ years ago, at the same time I started on the other blue C20 trolls. As with the "Hill Troll", this guy got "left behind" and was never finished. Since I managed to finish the Hill Troll a couple of weeks ago, it motivated me to pluck this part-painted guy off the desk and finish him off. All I'd done was the base, the basecoat in blue with a wash and drybrush on his cracked back texture - no details. I've gotta say that I really enjoyed finishing him off, and if I weren't in the midst of a self-imposed moratorium on starting new models, I'd be all over the rest of these which I've got tucked away somewhere.




    As you can see, this guy is much larger than the older models. As KoW uses regiments of 3 and 6 in size for Trolls and I already have 6 of the older models ready to go, if I manage to use him in a game before I paint up some more, he can be used as a Troll Bruiser (Hero).

  4. You've done a great job on this model. Clean bright colour choices and brushwork. The glowing stones and colours give him a kind of World of Warcraft Boss Mob feel as well. I could just imagine facing this guy in somewhere like Stonecore!

  5. Great work. There's a lot of character in that sculpt, and you've really enhanced that with your choices of colour and tone. The flushed skin of her nose and fingers really bring the figure to (and animated looking) life!
