  1. I have been busy painting these past months, but I have not been taking pictures and posting much, and these guys are to blame for that. I started them up many many years ago, but never could come up with a good paint scheme. My Monstrous Manual didn't have any pictures let alone a decent description, and the older pictures were all line art or black & white. Finally earlier this year I took a look at them again and was able to find 3rd ed pictures and descriptions and while very different than the old school versions it at least gave me a starting point. I could have just done
  2. Another old mini that I painted at the same time as the Taer. Initially I just primed him white and called it good, but since I was painting the Taer, I figured he'd be a good one to paint along side them since he would have a similar color scheme. He was also equally a pain the %&^$#@ elf to photograph, didn't matter if I was using a neutral background or my dungeon tiles. he would inevitably be washed out and or blurry. while trying to experiment I got a decent picture of him on top of my trash can out side. This guy is very much based on his art in the Monstrous Compen
  3. Under the Repaint & Rebuild column, we have the Ral Partha Frost Giant, 11-436. A classic version of the Frost Giant for Ral Partha's AD&D line back in the day. Amusingly, I was rather proud of this paint job back in the day. I cut the base out of thick clear plastic and then edged it with a rotary tool. Mixed snow, sand painted white and such to cover the large integral base and painted him up. However, on his way to an early days Finger Lakes Paint Day, he and a few other minis got unceremoniously dropped on the floor in their contai
  4. Here is the finished Sea Ghost. This is the ship detailed in the AD&D module U1, The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh. I have worked her up to-scale, 1" = 5'. Each deck is separable so that below deck action can be carried out. The bottom deck can be flipped over to show the bilge floor plan. I've put a 1" grid on each deck and painted in the walls and doors. You can see the WIP photos in the WIP forum if you're interested. I'm considering making a sloop and a treasure galley, too. But if I do that won't be for a couple months. Need to take a break and dig up some nice deck plans
  5. So here he is the final piece to the set I've been working on, an old Ral Partha AD&D set from the nineties, the Drow Elf assassin. and here: is the whole set and as a reminder the other three individually: Enjoy!
  6. So on my quest to finish up this set of four elves, I just completed the sea elf last night. I don't say this too often, but I think I'm really glad the way this one turned out, at least colorwise, as I was using a very limited color palette and was using sea-oriented colors that Reaper makes, like Seafoam Blue, Marine Teal, Clouded Sea, which are paints that I bought a while back but really haven't taken advantage of. With this color scheme in mind I may very well try to do some other aquatically themed figures in the near future. Now out of this set 11-422 from way back in the day
  7. So a while back Master Buglips and I were talking about this set of old Ral Partha figures, and I've finally found some time to work on them. The set itself has two archers, a drow elf and a sea elf. I've got the two archers finished, so I'll post these now, and hope to have the other two elves done soon. The female archer I tried to do with a wood elf vibe and the male elf with more of a high elf color scheme in mind. Hopefully you guys enjoy!
  8. When you find those frequent trips to the gaming store too embarrassing... Funny spoof. My apologies if it has been posted before.
  9. So I added some black ballast sand and some Earth colored flock to add some variety to the base, and am calling him(?) done. Comments and critiques welcome! Thanks for looking! George Wip here
  10. These are four of the classic old lead figures from the 1980 Grenadier "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" boxed set #5001, "Dungeon Explorers": the Ranger, the Bard, the Cleric "turning", and the Paladin. They are marvelously clunky and awkward. I never owned them back in the day, generally preferring Ral Partha and other more gracile brands than Grenadier's old standbys. It's been neat, though, to hear my old gaming friends recognize them. They are fairly simply sculpted, rather crude, with some bodged details. The right side of the bard's face was such a mess I painted him with an
  11. So here are the mighty Goblins, painted more than 25 years after their brethren.... Just goes to show that even and old fool can learn a thing or two.... Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: So there you have them! Tried a little bit of shading on the metals of the weapons, using Decay Black where zenithal light would be absent, don't know how much it helps... And for minis that have been used in countless AD&D games since they were painted, the old ones still don't look too bad..
  12. I found it appropriate that Deep Purple's classic song 'Burn', was playing as I poured the sand on this guys base to finish him up... So here is Ral Partha's Efreet from the AD&D line: Some close ups: The first 2 pics were just to see how different the figure would look against different back drops... I did the runes on his sword in Blue, thinking that if I was an evil fire creature, I would want a scimitar that would work well against my enemies / kinfolk, so a Frost Brand... Would work better against water creatures than a flaming sword as well... I put
  13. I wanted to do more work on other figures tonight, but I am waiting for some paint to arrive.... I looked at my 20 primed figures, trying to think which ones I had paint to work on, and he kind of bellowed at me to be painted! So working with my new style of working from the inside out, his skin got done tonight. I used the Scale 75 Blood and Fire set, working from dark to light, not using the orange or yellow on the skin. The yellow got used for his scalera, and the inside of his mouth. I didn't think red would work well here, and I thought that if it matched his eyes, it might be h
  14. Hello gals and guys, it's been too long since I shared anything. I've become somewhat obsessed with the licensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons miniatures produced by Grenadier Models from 1980-1982. These are usually referred to as the "Gold Line." I never had a true appreciation for these sculpts as a kid, but with 35 years in the hobby. I've finally started to come around. I'm thinking of collecting the entire line now! I'm amassing quite a little collection. I will post up more pictures as models are finished as long as there is any interest. I'm sure that these models are older
  15. Back when I first started getting into miniatures I would scour ebay looking for deals. One of the purchases that I made was Grenadiers 2007 Females set for AD&D. I don't remember exactly what I gave for it, but I do remember being happy because I was getting metal cheaper than I could Bones. It then proceeded to sit on my self for another year, to go with the 34 years that it had sat on someone else's shelf. As part of my recurring painting goals I am tackling minis from companies I haven't painted yet so I pulled it off the shelf and too a look at it. One thing I noticed was that
  16. I painted up an old Ral Partha troll, from their AD&D Monsters line. Love love love this sculpt of an old-school D&D foe I loved loved loved. I aimed for gross (and maybe a little radioactive) with him. Didn't do a whole lot, really--basecoated and applied a couple different washes (more SW; Algae and Green Black or whatnot) and sparely highlighted. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome!
  17. I started this guy almost 10 years ago just putting base colors on him, but was never sure what else to do with him. Recently I saw him on a shelf and decided to finish him. Someday I hope to paint his blister brother and their big brother the greater wolf spider. I painted his eyes blue to try and make him look a little different. I'm not sure if it works or if it is even all that noticable. Hmmm. I'm seeing some places I need to touch up now and I think I need to do more with the fur on his face. now that I see it close up. maybe he's not finished yet. Criticisms and suggesti
  18. tl:dr Birthright takes that 'divine right of kings' bit seriously. I wanna do some Birthright themed skirmish using the Of Gods and Mortals rules from Osprey. Skip to bottom if you don't want setting explanation. So I read a bunch of the Birthright campaign stuff back in the day and really liked the setting but was so/so on the rules. Warning: Redonculously long setting summary for those not familiar with Birthright (aka, OMG a wall of text!) For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, Birthright was a 2nd edition AD&D campaign setting that had Elves that were basically
