  1. Hi guys, Here's another one of the Ral Partha dwarves currently on their Chaos Wars Kickstarter. I think he's referred to as a standard bearer, but with the skull and such, along with just kind of his demeanor I've always thought of him more as a Dwarven Cleric or something similar.
  2. Hi all, so two more of those grand old Ral Partha dwarves, just finished that up last night. This time I've got a hornblower and a drummer getting geared up and going either to war or a concert, not sure which. Anyhow, their Kickstarter is going on right now, so feel free to show some love for some great, classic figures!
  3. 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.... Comments welcome! WiP here Thanks for looking! George
  4. Hi guys, so with the Kickstarter for Ral Partha having just recently launched, I thought I'd share another one of the dwarves that I've just finished up with recently. This one is a Ral Partha Dwarf, previously unreleased, sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize. I should really pay more attention to these things, if I remember correctly, he was dated 1979 on the bottom. He's being offered in the Chaos Wars Kickstarter under the Dwarf Characters 25-459. It's a fun little figure, very straight forward and a nice, quick paint. He's just a guy with a shirt, pants, boots and sword. Fun to paint, and didn't take too long at all. Anyhow, hope you enjoy and please go check out Partha's Kickstarter, tons of really cool stuff!
  5. I've not posted anything here for the last month or so as I've been working on a commission, which I thought I would share here. The minis are from the past & present & are by various manufacturers. I extended the integral metal bases out to the edge of the plastic rim with Milliput & did some light texturing on it, the Frost Giant has Army Painter snow flock on top. The Blight Lord's base was done using Basius's "Dungeon" stamp pad & green stuff. Dark Sword Minis Male Elf Ranger DSM-7105 Ral Partha Frost Giant 01-057 Reaper Minis Brand Male Barbarian 02529 Reaper Minis Townsfolk VII Clergy 02950 Rebel Minis Blight Lord RFF0209 Off The Wall Armies Swordfish Fighter GCC17-2183 C & C's are always welcome, thanks for looking!
  6. I interrupt my other works in progress to bring you this special Project. But George, those guys are already done, you are thinking.... And you would be right! I painted these guys when I was in college, back in the early 90s, using the Polly S & Ral Partha AD&D Paint Lines... And seem to have missed the fact that the guy with the 2 handed mace is wearing some sort of skull cap! But now, I have 5 more! Thanks to another forumite that was going to use them as weight for the melt tables at R Con, he was kind enough to let me save them from the abyss... So it will be fun to see what this group will look like, with all of the things I have learned from my fellow forumites in the last 9 months,and using Good brushes, a wet palette, Scale 75 paints, Reaper and Vallejo, and yes, Polly S AD&D 460 Goblin Flesh! Come back and see when I get more than primer on them! (They are also Goblin Flesh practice for the Infamy Goblin Chieftain on the Death Chicken....) George
  7. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
  8. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  9. While painting has been a little constrained, it's been a good month for gaming. I attended two conventions, running demo games of Chaos Wars for Iron Wind Metals. At Cincycon the first weekend in March, we had access to the company collection of figures, so I didn't need to worry about what to put on the table, but at Cold Wars I was running games (with the aid of my brother) out of my own collection. My collection runs to vintage rather than current production, and I thought it would be nice if I could work toward getting some stuff on the table that is still in the catalog, although vintage sculpts. I started a unit of a dozen goblin archers from the recent Kickstarter, but left them at work on Thursday while on my way home for a three day weekend. That made finishing the last six a little difficult. So, I picked two medium monsters that I had primed at the same time, that were going to be largely monochrome, and went to work. As stated in the title, these were a Tom Meier Jabberwock, and a Dennis Mize Manticore. It took me about two hours to get these to the point where I was ready to start basing them. For wargaming, I kept the base treatments fairly simple. They're both on 40mm round wooden bases, to which I'll add a flexible steel bottom to engage my magnetic storage boxes. Here's a closer shot of the manticore: And the Jabberwock:
  10. This is a diorama I made in 2002. The quality of the painting is not as good as I can do now, but I am still happy with it. The ladies are from Rackham and the beholder is from Ral Partha. The floor and wall were made with hirsts arts blocks.
  11. Some more mini's from George's archive.... Painted in the college years, 1988-1992... Some 3 Stage minis, only one of which I have all 3... Female Magic User (01-337) The middle one looks like she has a Christmas ornament on her forehead! Elf Thief (01-319) Magic User (01-317) This guy was painted by a friend in Germany in 85 0r 86 when I was in the Army... Kurt you out there!? (Gern you out there? I know your real name!) Thank the Dark Lords of Lead for the old Catalogs to find all the numbers in! Thanks for looking! George
  12. So the Pathfinder game was played last Saturday, and a friend from collage that still plays with us brought up a box of old lead that he was going to put on evil bay, and asked me if I wanted any of them..... (Anyone care to guess my answer?) So I refrained from taking the whole box and grabbed the following: Ral Partha: These critters are called 'Hexers' or something like that I believe R.Charrette, 1989 on the base These guys reminded me of Anhurians 1992 on base These guys had odd helmets that I kinda liked... R Charrette and 1989 on base again This guy just struck my fancy for some reason: Ral Partha 84 on the base... As soon as I saw this guy, I thought of the Dark Enabler, The Like Bomber, & CW.... R Charrette and 1989 on base again (So when I paint this guy, which one do I skin for him???? ) Grenadier: The Dwarf Bear rider was just..... A422 1989 on base This Orc? Ogre? was kinda neat, so.... M459 1991 on base And I just like this guy! His boots are claws, His visor reminds me of a Traveller character I had back in High School that a different friend drew a pic of for me, and his shield is neat! FP41 1987 on base They are all going to go for a swim in paint stripper, as soon as I can find some gel type.... Aint friends wonderful? George
  13. Just two dogs that I finished up this weekend. One of which I finished up months ago at a paint n take but just now decided to finish basing and the other from the Iron Wind by the ounce bins at Gencon (does anyone know his id number? I can't find him on IWM website.) Found This was my first attempt at using static grass. I'm fairly pleased. This is the one from Iron Wind and I don't know it's ID number. If anyone does that would be appreciated. It's the war dog from the historicals line No fancy basing for this one. I decided I liked how it looked plain. I had to redo some of his markings after I put the sealer on because some brown got into the sealer so Iost some of the contrast. Unfortunately I didn't remember what color I used to get the markings in the first place. This color stands out better but the old one looked more natural. The two of them together. Comments and criticisms appreciated.
  14. Hi there, just finished these over the weekend, some old school Ral Partha dwarves from I can't remember what year, but somewhere between 1979 and 1982. I've always had a thing for this set, always enjoyed it as it was an old set of non-military type dwarves, truly "personalities" from a bygone age. I've had a bit of lighting problems with these ones as I seem to have a lot any more, but here are the best pictures I could take:
  15. So stripping figures and cleaned up this lovely NOT Alias looking mini... The item at her feet in the 1st 2 pics are her sword and right hand. Markings on base are Ral Partha 1997. After looking in my '97, and winter 98/99 catalogs, nada. Looking through Lost Minis wiki, nada... Help! Thanks! George
  16. These are some old Ral Partha sculpts (now sold by Iron Wind Metals) I finished up in my year-end Conga Line of cleaning up half-done minis. In Iron Wind's catalogue they are: DS-044 Female Corporate Decker with Laptop and Gun; DS-048 Male Corporate Decker with Laptop and Pistol; and the man from the set 20-524 Riggers & Drones. These are old school figures from the early '90s and are 25mm scale, so a little small by today's standards. The woman corporate decker is especially small and looks to me like a schoolgirl; I painted her up as a Filipina PC for a game I'm playing in. I thought the man corporate decker looked more a Native American than a suit. The rigger has disproportionately short legs which make him look a little odd and he has some sort of campy Captain Kirk in the movies vibe. Shadowrun's vision of the future is solidy based in the 1980s. Adventurers have to cart around gargantuan keyboard computers in their bare hands and physically plug them in to systems with wires. Their version of the internet is hilarious, to say the least. But what can I say? I love campy sci-fi futures past. WIP (along with a lot of other half-finished minis) here.
  17. And here's the little Partha figure I finished. I've always enjoyed these teeny weeny figures (back when 25mm really meant something), and this is one of Dennis Mize's old Children of the Night figures, probably sculpted around 1979. As I mentioned in the post with the Stonehaven elves, I am really happy I discovered a button that brings the color back into my crappy photographs with the editing software. I've got my other little Partha Wizard I'm working on, as well as another Stonehaven elf.
  18. While a couple of these are from last week, I've been stuck around the house for the last few days. When my hands haven't been sore from shovelling, I've been getting some painting and basing done. As always, tabletop painting... This little group of archers is from three different Ral Partha lines, Legions of the Petal Throne, Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age, and the 1200AD historical range. This old Ral Partha frost giant, done more generically, was from my recent road trip. Also from last week was this ancient Ral Partha ES-3 balrog: I'm putting together a little skirmish game band of Ral Partha gremlins. These two are later versions. Between all the versions, I've got nine different poses, with the next three on the workbench: I'm gradually working my way through the early Ral Partha fantasy figures. Here's an early version ES-10, hill troll. I apologize for the glare; I'm still working on my lighting skills for these shots: Here's the early version Wyvern, ES-50: And, finally, a couple of ents. The one on the left is an old Heritage figure. He's lost all but one finger on his left hand, leaving him permanently a bit rude. He was one of a pair in an auction lot a while back, and I posted pictures of his brother earlier. The other is a Broadsword Miniatures Tree Troll, from 1980:
  19. This figure is one of a set of 8 female adventurers that Ral Partha released as a boxed set many, many years ago. I have set (but not the box), and they were all painted up (badly) in my youthful exuberance. I came across them while looking for something else and decided to fix them up. This is the first one that I've finished. Since these ladies are true 25mm scale, they'll probably be used as halflings or gnomes. I hope you like her.
  20. Here's another diorama I did many years ago. It features a Citadel Necromancer and his Snotling acolyte attacking a Ral Partha's Fearless Frost Dragon. I painted the Dragon as a Black Dragon with his skin slowly rotting, affected by a necromantic spell. The stone fence posts, stone walls, gates and tombstones are from the Woodland Scenics Maple Leaf Cemetery box kit.
  21. So after a long stretch of Partha orcs and goblins, I'm taking a petite break and working on some Stonehaven elves I got and a few Partha pieces for a bit of variety. I put one photo of them all together so you can see the size difference between the Stonehaven pieces and the Partha ones. One thing I really like about the Stonehaven elves is their size. Makes painting eyes easier.
  22. Kaitlynn surveyed the battlefield; the ogres and beastmen had been decisively defeated with this battle. They had been routed, but it would take many more days and weeks to hunt them all down and eliminate them, so that the regions safety would be ensured. It seemed like it wasn't all that long ago, and indeed it was only a year or two, that she and her friends on started out on the road to fortune and glory. There hadn't been much of either in those early days; giant rats and bandits weren't known for their legendary treasure hoards. Still, she had learned valuable skills in those days; skills that had served to help keep her and her friends alive. Well, most of her friends, anyway. They had suffered the loss of the dwarven warrior Harbrom while fighting orcs in Scorchskull pass. He sent at least a score of the beasts to their foul gods before he fell, though. The memory brought a painful smile to her face; he had always teased her about choosing to learn swordsmanship instead of the axe. 'Nothing better than a fine dwarven axe in yer hands, girl.' he always used to say. She shook her head to clear the memories; time enough for that later when she was relaxing with Talen at his tavern. At least he had lived... This is the second (mid level) stage of Ral Partha's 3 stage fighter; I did the low level version a couple of months ago. She can be seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65400-ral-partha-3-stage-female-fighterlow-level/?p=1257120 She was painted for Inarah's end of year paint binge. I have the third (high level) stage as well, I'll paint her up once I figure out where I hid her from myself. I hope you like her.
  23. Another miniature for the RP Challenge, which has helped motivate me! This is an old Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age miniature, Aquilonian Heavy Infantry with Sword. It's a very basic paintjob, but the details were soft on this one so not much to work with (this came out in 1979, and was Dennis Mize's first line I think). I took the color scheme from memories of the old King Conan comic book and how his armies were portrayed.
  24. This is an old Ral Partha ( I think--if you know differently, please let me know and I'll edit the thread ) brazier I was originally going to use it with my evil shrine aquarium piece (see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60231-evil-shrine-terrain-piece/?p=1089218), but I couldn't get it to fit inside to my satisfaction. I finally decided to just paint it up separately. I wanted to try painting fire again. I've done it a few other times, but it always looked 'wrong' somehow. I'm moderately happy with this attempt. I started off with white, went to yellow, and then used red, orange, and finally all three wet blended together to try and make it look 'real'. What do you think?
  25. Since more people are showing off what they did last year, here are mine: Minis I painted in 2015. ( seems I have been busy) I will link them so you can check them out. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66228-54mm-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65908-pumpkin-witches-and-their-house-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65484-legendarion-hyena-warrior-bust-gebhuza-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64977-zombicide-survivor-dog-painted-as-my-boxer-brutus-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63196-bonnie-chonoscope-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60500-77117-vandorendra-snake-demon-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63938-kabuki-bust-ky-ra-female-barbarian-16-scale-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61631-xherman1964-paints-a-ral-partha-hill-troll/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62215-beloved-of-sobek-by-xherman1964-crocodile-games/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61632-stygian-guardian-chronopia/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61214-77100-vanja-fire-giant-queen-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60445-zombie-grenadier-horseman/
