  1. So I started packing up my Gencon stuff yesterday and realized that I was short three wolves for my brother's Ringbearer game. These three early Ral Partha wolves were already primed, so they got picked for the quick treatment; about an hour this morning. Basing sand is drying as I type...
  2. As long as I was at the table speed painting the wolves this morning, I thought I would take the opportunity to finish this vintage Ral Partha land dragon. The dragon was basically already finished, so I only needed to finish the rider. I got a handful of recent castings at Gencon last year, so building out a unit has been on my to-do list for a while. This is the version 2 figure, by the way. The v1 doesn't have the flared tail and has the head looking up, and the version 3 is quite different.
  3. So with my obsession with My Dark Lady, I have painted up the old Ral Partha Takhisis mini from the Dragonlance Villains box. But since I had previously painted up the DSM version as the human version of her avatar, I was at a loss as to what I should do when I fell into an old Ral Partha mini from Evilbay cheap... Well, She is a Deity, so why should Her Avatar be limited to human? And as my avatar is a Drow.... So I give you The Queen of Darkness as a Drow... Not as happy with her as I was with my DSM, but.... Thanks for looking! George (WiP)
  4. ***In another bout of insanity, I had started this mini as well....*** ***And it's about time too....*** ***Yes my Queen of Darkness....*** So while hunting the Bay of all Evil, I ran across the 'human' Avatar of Takhisis from the box set for a good price, and bought her. After she made her way here from Denmark, and got cleaned up and primed, she has been getting som paint here and there... Decay Black base coat for the skin, followed by MSP Dark elf triad...(incomplete) Eyes were White Sands and Aldebaran Red Bikini with Sunset Purple ***I mean I already painted her Awesomness' Human Avatar, (DSM Barbarian Queen), so I thought that MY people would be fitting for an Avatar of the Queen of Chaos....*** ***I will reserve my judgement until I see what you have done with my other mortal form.....*** ***Yes my Queen! I will do my finest work!*** ***You had Better!*** (Ma'al Drakkar....) ****AAAAAAhhhhh Dreamy.........**** Comments, critiques and distractions welcome! George
  5. So here are the last bunch of figures I've finished up, trying to get them squeezed in before vacation. These I think are from the nineties, and quite a many years ago I painted three of the four, I actually ended up using the same color scheme I'd used previously for the most part. The only one I hadn't painted before, I think because I never got around to it, was the bouncer. At the moment I haven't yet put them on bases, maybe after I get back from vacation. I kind of like them without bases, but prefer bases just to keep them from falling over. These figures were sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the great and I think underrated Partha and Reaper sculptors with so many figures sculpted for both companies. ​Enjoy!
  6. So after working lots on Ral Partha Chaos Wars drwarves, here is something a little bit different. Still very old school, from an old Partha line, Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age, a female thief, really simple sculpt from Dennis Mize, a front and back angle, nice figure, sculpted it looks like in 1979. Enjoy!
  7. This is another honorary Old School mini, an Ironwind Metals casting of the old (dated 1982) Ral Partha "Female Thief With Dagger II", catalogue #DF-122 in both cases. She was one of the earliest minis I actually owned, so getting another copy of her meant something special to me. The original WIP thread is here, but I did most of the work on her during the Memorial Day Paint Binge last weekend.
  8. I've had this guy on my workbench for...several years...I've finally decided to call him done. Based on the box art, Keith Parkinson's stellar "What do you Mean, We're Lost?" Comments are, as always, welcome!
  9. Finished up this mini today. An old Ral Partha mini I got a while ago in a set of three. I didn't like the weapon, so I swapped it out for a Space Marine Knife. At the 25mm scale it looks like a short sword on this mini. Then he sat for a while. So I decided to paint him up as a scout more than a thief. I decided to continue to work on sculpted rock basing (my second attempt). Then I put down some greenery and called him finished. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.
  10. So here are my last in a series of umpteen dwarves. This last set I think I got a little lazy with as I gave them more or less the same colors of capes, but it's kind of a blue and red color scheme I've been trying to hold on to any way. Anyway, hope you enjoy them!
  11. So as I chug right along, painting these Partha dwarves, my latest two, Elite Armored Dwarf Guards from Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night that were also incorporated into the Chaos Wars Kickstarter campaign for Ral Partha. So with this set of two, I actually have a goodly number (I think three) of blue dwarven shields with big empty spaces on them waiting for some art, but not sure when or if I'd ever get around to providing something on them. If I was just working on an individual figures, it probably would be a little easier, but if I put something on them, I might even want them to match. Oh well, something to consider for the probably far-flung future. I must say that with the NMM I've been trying to do, not always happy, but doing it again and again and again is certainly a good way to practice. And ultimately, when figures like these are mostly armor, it ends up being the main part of the figure and really being one color element kind of makes them a little simple. Anyhows, hopefully you enjoy!
  12. I painted this up with my Old School Grenadier minis because I've never felt quite right with all-male parties. She's honorary Old School, although a modern Ironwind metals recasting. In old Ral Partha she was #03-107, but in Ironwind Metals' new catalogue she is #61-093. She is very small. Here she is compared to a Reaper figure (02881: Dara, Psionic Warrior); both Ciera and Dara were sculpted by Sandra Garrity: Anyhow, she is a lovely sculpt and I enjoyed bringing her to life. The original WIP was here, then I finished her on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  13. First off, many thanks to those who helped me identify some of the stumpers here. These are a couple of adventuring parties' worth of Old School lead figures and a few baddies, kindly slung my way by Doc Bedlam and the generous folks behind the Random Boxes O' Goodwill. One remains unidentified, but most are known. They mostly cluster around two dates, roughly 1980 or 1991. I added a few women figures of roughly the same vintage to round the parties out. Here are four classics from the utterly classic Grenadier set 5001, "Dungeon Explorers": the Bard, Paladin, Cleric Turning, and Ranger. These are: a wizard FF2-A from Heritage Models set 1302, "Evil Wizards and Ring Wraiths"; RAFM's 3903 Ranger (Female), Ral Partha 01-319; "Elf Thief 3 Stage" 319b (stage two); and a fighter from from the Grenadier set 1414 "Fighting Men Champions". The last group is: Grenadier A183, "Dwarf with Two-Handed Axe" from the Grenadier Set 1603, "Dwarves, Army of the Gold Mountain"; Ral Partha DF-122, "Female Thief with Dagger"; some glorious Ral Partha female fighter that I'm blanking on at the moment (watch this space), and an unknown ninja signed "Ridolfi" on the bottom of the base. These are some opponents: Goblin w/ Axe and Goblin w/ Sword from the Grenadier set AD&D 5002 "Monsters"; a Ral Partha D&D figure -- again, I have to double-check and he might not be intended to be a bad guy, but that's how I'm thinking of him; and the Metal Magic C1017c, "Witch with Cat".
  14. So while nattering away on the Google Hangout that Guindyloo set up for the Memorial Day Painting Binge, He got finished.... I think he came out pretty good, nothing I would consider more than a high end Table Top.... Not really pleased with his eyes, but after the third or fourth repaint, I said to Hades with it.... WiP Here Thanks For Looking! George
  15. This is another piece of Old School lead from the Box O' Goodwill, Ral Partha's"Elf Thief", 01-319B, circa. 1986. It was sculpted by Tom Meier. For a time Ral Partha had sets of adventurers at three stages in their career: Starting out, mid-level, and high-level. This is the middle figure of the male elf thief set (01-319). Original WIP here. The elf was finished in a speedpaint over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  16. So here are my latest three figures, from the old 3-Stage Player Character line and ones that were also included in the dwarven forces for Ral Partha's latest Kickstarter. I thought of doing them as the same character progressively in his career, but didn't quite end up that way, even though I thought I gave the most experienced of the three in the plate mail a bushy white beard! Anyhoos, enjoy! Long live old school!
  17. This is a fine little piece of Old School lead I got from the Box O' Goodwill project. It's a Ral Partha, looks like 2nd edition D&D vintage. The original set (so research tells me) had two magicians, a male and female dressed and posed similarly. I started him in March and finished him off quickly during the Memorial Day Weekend challenge. I can see little sloppy bits, but I think he's okay for tabletop use.
  18. So since I only had 3 main projects and the diorama going, I am starting something else! This is Maglubiyet, Chief Deity of Goblins and Hobgoblins, who made his first appearance in the old 'Deities and Demi-Gods' from AD&D first edition... Maglubiyet is described as a giant (11 feet tall), black-skinned goblin with flaming eyes, powerfully-muscled arms and sharp talons. He is said to wield a mighty coal-black battleaxe that constantly drips blood. The mini is pretty cool, nicely cast with few mold lines, one of which I found while doing the initial base coat, of course... So here he is with a base coat of MSP Blue Liner: The eyes are gonna be fun.... If I had a couple more of these, I think they would make awesome statues for next to the doors of a temple... George
  19. So with only a few hours to go in the Ral Partha Chaos War Kickstarter, here are the last few dwarves I was able to finish before it comes to an end. I still have a few (eight or so) pending to paint, but I'll get to those as soon as I can. I tried keeping somewhat with the original blue and red theme I was tasked with, and I realize I should have probably put a design on that big blue shield, but just ran out of time. I also wonder if I should have given that guy some eybrows. Believe it or not, that figure has eyes, you just can't see them at that angle. Anyhow, hope you enjoy and if you ever thought you wanted some of these the Kickstarter is still open for about two hours..
  20. Mini appears to be this guy. I was going for a kind of unearthly celestial glow with him, though it came out really strangely in the hair. Still, fun to paint :-) Update: I didn't like how his base looked. Although it was transparent, it didn't give the illusion of floating, so I added some "clouds", which is closer to what I wanted, but still doesn't quite give the flying illusion. :-/ If anyone has any suggestions on how I can make him look more like he's flying, I'm all ears :-) Thanks!
  21. Hello, for my first post I've decided to share my latest mini.
  22. Hi there all, so with the Ral Partha Chaos Wars Kickstarter in high gear, ten more days left, I've been painting some more of their figures, and I just finished this Greater troglodyte. I really like these figures as they seem so lizardlike in their poses, much more than a person with a lizard head and tail. Working on a few more with the same color scheme, but this is the first one I got done as he didn't have any armor, just his naked trog body and a sword. I also like their size scaled against other Partha figures. If I saw a troop of these rushing down upon me, I'd probably start running the other way. Hope you enjoy!
  23. This will take a while to complete, but these two are going on a base as a performing duo, probably used in camp vignettes rather than adventurers. I have spares of both, so I can try again as individuals as I am moved to. I wish I had someone with a recorder (the flute kind) and a drum in similar old school size/style...
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
