  1. 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 I've got one more figure left, a drow assassin, who will be up next as soon as I finish him.
  2. 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!
  3. Here is a group of speed painted bones skeletons I painted back in February. I spent maybe 4 hours total on all of them. I am still planning on adding some plant materials to the base. Skeletal Spearmen (77001) Skeletal Archers (77017) Skeletal Swordsmen (77018) All the bones skeletons I have painted so far: And all the skeletons I have ever painted, because I love me some group shots. The ones in front (and back) was painted over 20 years ago, before I started basing. Miniatures from Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm and of course Reaper.
  4. I needed another large monster for my Lost World Project. WIP and Stories here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ This time I painted the Ral Partha T-Rex. Based her on a resin Jungle base from Micro Art Studios, it has some nice touches like a conquistadore's skull, frogs and a lizard. I named her Trixy. Hope you like her:
  5. Hi all, I've been beavering away on this classic old Ral Partha White Dragon/Cold Drake recently. It belongs to a friend of mine who recently bought it. It's always been a favourite sculpt of his (and indeed mine!) & as he is not a miniature painter, I offered to paint it for him. Here's what happened....... Now, your probably thinking, "but it's not white or chilly looking at all!". That is true but my friend asked for it to be red as that how he's always seen it & I was happy to oblige with a suitably old school paint job. Thanks for looking!
  6. Was there a Paladin without Chain Mail? Friend handed this to me, said it was the model that started it all. He has picked up thousands of painted models ever since, the lifetime collection is mind boggling. Felt like an honor to paint up especially after seen so many great paint jobs completed on models he owns. I tried to give it a little something extra here and there, hope he likes it. An older model, smaller than reapers stuff, but still a nice model....It has a realistic feel to it for me, I think it is the frying and bedroll on his back. He is definitely ready for the road.
  7. Hello again everybody, got this one finished last night. Not quite so sure about the quality of of the photos, but when they are shrunk down to 500 x 500 they look a lot better. Also with him holding up that sword it takes up so much space in the photo itself that everything looks a bit smaller than I'd want it to. Oh well. ​In any case, this is the King of the Realm, a figure from Dennis Mize that originally came in a package of kings from different genres. There was this guy, http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/b/b2/03-005_D.JPG then another one that I painted previously, http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:03-006_front.JPG then an African warrior king and an oriental mage. There was then also a corresponding pack of ladies from the same set of genres, another one of which I'd recently painted. Anyhoos, this one is the barbarian king archetype: and he had a big, empty, round shield so tried to put a dragon on it: So hoping he came out okay.
  8. So, since I was procrastinating on making my base for Rasia I decided to start prepping some more figures to paint. After see 72Moonglum paint up some old partha's I decided to work on another of mine. Here is stage one of my 3 stage elf collection: I then decided why not finaly paint up one of my Chainmail Elves. Also why not add a newer one to round out the generations, Reaper's Amiryth Elmlighter.
  9. I finished my first figure for the year a couple days ago. It's also my first painted dragon. Ever. I'm pretty psyched about getting the eyes to look good on my first try.
  10. So another old Partha piece that I just finished. I don't think the photos are the greatest and there is such lack of mercy when you see your piece so close up but here we go: I think she came out reasonably well. She had a huge shield that I just didn't want to leave blank, so I did a bit of freehand, but I'm wondering sometimes my artistic talents when I do these, as this little Pegasus reminds me more of a little rag doll horsey than a noble beast of flight. It's just really hard to get too much detail in such a small area which is about the size of a dime. This one was originally a set of four females, originally called Queens from different cultures by Dennis Mize, really nice set. Enjoy!
  11. So this I'm assuming is going to be my last finished miniature of 2016. I got the base finished last night and photos taken at lunch today. I'm pretty happy with my grand total for the year, I'm thinking it's probably a personal record. I ended up with 52, averaging one per week, 43 from Ral Partha, eight from Stonehaven, and one from Dark Sword Miniatures. This one is an old Partha piece, I'm guessing latter nineties, which was kind of of based I'm guessing on Xena. Very similar armor and the long hair, with a slightly modified and thicker chakram that was Xena's trademark weapon. She was a pretty simple figure to paint, with a fully exposed face and eyes that weren't at all sunken into her head like sometimes Dennis Mize has done. Anyhow, enjoy and Happy New Year to everybody!
  12. Picked this up on E-Bay because she fits an NPC in my game. Photography is not one of my strong points. I did her base with static grass and a skull on the ground in front of her (not in the pic). I thought the skin came out nice.
  13. So just finished this one up last night, wizard with staff from an old Ral Partha line. I actually like this figure quite a lot because he's an older guy, but has decided not to become a old, long-haired, long-bearded wizard in a big, billowing cloak, rather he's tried to keep himself a little more up with the times with some sensible clothing and a hair cut.
  14. I do not know where this miniature came from, but when I pulled him out of the bin, I imagined sunbreaks in the late spring rain. So the dragon would be marching through a grassy pasture strewn with stones in the aftermath of a great storm. Hopefully my little golden dragon will bring us luck with the storm hitting the northwest right now!
  15. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Children of All Ages, Creatures of Every Type, Shade, and Hue, and buglips*the*goblin, I give you.... ME! I Finished Herself this evening, and then Had Her pose for an exclusive photo-shoot. Without Further Ado, The Queen of Chromatic Dragons! I took a shot of the photo set up as well: All pics were shot from 5+' away, then cropped with Photo Shop, Color and contrast corrected as well. It was a journey to get here, and my thanks to all those that looked in on the WiP from time to time, and special thanks to those that commented and encouraged me to keep going! And of course kept Her distracted as well.... George Human Avatar Here
  16. I painted these guys some 17 years ago? Maybe a little longer? I can't remember what manufacturer they are. Did Ral Partha start making 28mm minis right before they mysteriously disappeared? I have some savage orcs too that are from the same line I think.
  17. 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...
  18. 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.
  19. 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)
  20. ***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
  21. 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!
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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.
