  1. Hello all you fine Reaperkloskis! So this evening finally getting around two minis that I did a few weeks back. I painted up the two Ral Partha Djinn, sculpted way back when by Tom Meier. This is the second time I painted them, and this time I actually painted them with the specific desire to try to sell them on the all so nefarious eBay, A- to see if I could get something to sell for a decent price and B- because I need to see if I can buy myself some new paints and such with the proceeds. My miniature budget is not the largest, so on occasion I might do something like try to sell something to see if I can raise some funds for new paints and this time I'm running out of normal-sized bases as well. So anyhoos, here they are, anybody old enough will probably recognize these pretty easily: Here they are together as the set itself: and then here each individual one, first of all the one that I've always likened to Robin Williams, even though a lot skinnier and meaner looking, and sculpted years before the Aladdin movie ever came out The other one being at least the way I've always seen this one, as an Efreet, all warm reds, oranges and yellows: I actually painted these same miniatures quite a many years ago as well, if I recall with craft paints ( the new ones are all done with Reaper paints): and then of course, always fun to compare them side by side: Different brands of paints and probably 10-15 years between paint jobs, always fun to compare! You also might see small differences, for example, shape of sword and one of the blue djinn has a nose ring, while the other does not. Back then lots of Ral Partha figures might have gotten updated or modified to a number of reasons. Couldn't tell you which is the original version however. So anyhow, hope you all enjoy! Viva old school!
  2. and good evening folks! Recently finished this elf with war hammer, another classic Ral Partha piece sculpted by Tom Meier, re-released by Ral Partha Legacy: and more feathers, didn't know what colors to paint them, so just went for some prime colors. Reasonably happy how the armor came out, I see of course still room for improvement, but could have been worse. Anyhoos, enjoy another Tolkienesque little elf!
  3. Good evening all! So as my quest to keep painting Partha elves continues, here's my most recent one, another Elf Adventurer. This one however has an axe and shield, and this time I didn't do any foresty or pastel colors, rather some black and red. The eagle emblem on his shield made me think of much darker colors than usual. So anyhoos, here he is: This is another one of the figures that Ral Partha Legacy has recently re-released. Small minis, but simple and fun to paint! Thanks for having a gander!
  4. Hello all you Reaper beasties! So tonight showing off a mini I just finished yesterday, an old Tom Meier Ral Partha Elf Archer, now re-released by Ral Partha Legacy. Fun and reasonably quick mini to paint, pretty petite. The green shirt was easy to choose, but the purple pants took a while to figure out. Anyway hope you all enjoy!
  5. Happy New years all you fine and funky friends of Reaper! So I painted these ones up quite a while back, but they only just recently were released on the Ral Partha Legacy web site, so I can finally show them off. Two goblins and two orcs, most of them with empty hands so you can put whatever type of weapons you'd like to arm them wit. So after years of being ready, please enjoy! I'm really not even sure when I painted all these, but it was definitely a few years ago already. I might have already shown off the last two, but honestly don't remember. In either case, please enjoy!
  6. Hello all you Reaperaholics! So here's another Ral Partha Elf, sculpted by Tom Meier, and re-released by Ral Partha Legacy, what was originally a sea elf, originally called Esgalduin, Sea Elf Guardian, offered both on foot and mounted. Nowadays he's at Ral Partha Legacy called Elf Adventurer with Spear. Originally, before I figured out he was a sea elf, I was thinking of painting him in yellows, whites and pinks, but with the advent of this newly discovered knowledge, I decided to throw some blues in there as well, and his shield too was made a sea foam blue or something. So anyhoos, here he is: The shield, being kind of an odd shape, didn't really feel to lend itself to have me put some kind of something on it, so I just painted it a solid color. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  7. So a bit back I painted two other elf miniatures, which were Adriel, in the aspect of a thief and mage, as the original miniature set from Ral Partha way back was Adriel as thief, warrior mage, something like that. The thief and mage are available at Ral Partha Legacy, but this one, the warrior guise isn't available yet. It might be some day, apparently there were issues with the old mold tearing. In any case, here is Adriel as a warrior She is pretty small and dainty, as were most of Tom Meier's eighties figures. and then here she is with her entire blister pack painted up: I've got so many packs of Partha figures that I want to complete, such sets that came in themes and in groups of three or four. I've got a half elf set, half orc set, then lots of the 3 tiered or leveled adventurers. So many miniatures, so little time......
  8. Hello all you Reapertonians, tonight I've got a few Ral Partha figures, originally sculpted back in the eighties by Tom Meier and no re-released by Ral Partha Legacy. With these two by pure coincidence I've also painted these quite a many years ago, so I've got a new version as well as the old version that I painted probably almost a decade ago. So here are the new ones, the female thief I liked how her face came out, hence the close up, but that inside space between nose and hair was a pretty rough cast. And now the Mage: and because I painted these way back when, when I was first getting back into painting (I might even have some of these somewhere in the Reaper Forums archives if I looked hard enough) here are the older versions, which way back when I thought they were pretty decent, but now I at least feel like I've gotten better: and for even more fun and jubilation, some straight off comparison shots: There was a part of me that wanted to replicate the original colors in the new models as well, and maybe some day I'll go back and do that, but for now wanted a bit of variety between the older ones and the new ones. So anyway, hope you enjoy!
  9. Hello all, so here's another old Tom Meier Partha elf that I just finished, been on a elf rampage recently, with some more still in the wings. I'm actually enjoying these older Meier elf sculpts because even though they are kind of small, they are relatively straight forward, not overburdened with extra items on the figure, it's usually the character, clothes, some armor, weapons, and maybe a little bag or something, but that's pretty much it. Anyhoos, here is a Ral Partha Elf Thief, also from that Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Nights Citadel crossover group of elves back from the eighties. Color scheme had me stuck for a while, so went pretty simple on the clothing, off-white and blue. Snazzy little elf with a bag of coin he just swiped off some fat, rich merchant in the street.
  10. Hello all you Reapertronics! So have been starting to painted some of my Ral Partha Legacy Kickstarters, and here's an Elf Mage with Wand. Photos are okay I guess, and so hard to figure out colors, but here he is: and a close up of the face, itty bitty and small So enjoy! More to come!
  11. Good evening my Reaper brethren and sisters! So tonight I've got a mini I just finished, Reynard the Rogue, a figure sculpted I think back in the eighties by Tom Meir. He's an anthropomorphic fox before they were fashionable: and this figure looks coincidentally similar to another figure painted by Mr. Meier a few years earlier, which was a Highwayman, mounted and on foot. Way back in the early eighties I painted the original highwayman: In my adolescent style, with probably at that time Polly S paints and as a base I just used a piece of balsa wood that I painted earth color. It's interesting what almost forty years will do to the brightness of the paint. And then here is a side by side, just for fun: I think my newer version is much more flamboyant than the original one! I've got to see if I have the human version somewhere unpainted. Might have him somewhere, really not sure.
  12. Good afternoon Reapercochlians! So here's one I just finished, a female elf mage, with wand, sculpted by Tom Meier for the last Ral Partha Legacy Kickstarter As always no idea what colors I wanted but something light and pastel. As Mr. Meier is rather infamous for, it's so hard to hit his eyes properly, they are so small. So from the collective hive mind, when you have small eyes on a figure, do you try to keep within the actual confines of what has been sculpted or do you go outside of the boundaries? Anyhoos, here she is: and here's a close up of her face with the eyes: Besides eyes, I'm finding my new favorite hard and horrible thing to paint are the eyebrows. With this one, I almost didn't want to add eyebrows, thinking she's blonde, maybe you wouldn't even see them, but then of course I started looking for blonde elves on line and they are all presented with brows. As you can see, one is a bit different than the other. Sometimes just impossible to get them to look the same. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  13. This is an old Ral Partha dragon sculpted by Tom Meier. It's supposed to be the Great Fire Dragon, obviously I didn't know that when I painted him or I would have gone with red. I've had him for 20-30 years, so I figure it's high time that he got painted. Please let me know what you think. >Taking decent pictures of something this big is a little difficult. <
  14. Good afternoon chaps and chapettes, here are a few woolies, sculpted by Tom Meier in his Sparkle and Savage range, when he had his own company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures. These have been nowadays related at Ral Partha Legacy: and they come as a group as well: Imagine all the fanciful colors you could make these if you had a big group of them!
  15. Here's another one I just finished, also from Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, The Slug Eat Your Face, conceptualized by Theo Meier and sculpted by his dad Tom. Easy and quick miniature to paint once you decide on colors: The pupil in the big eye is a little weird as Mr. Meier basically just put a hole where he thought the pupil might be so that's the black part of his pupil and the other little eye was so deeply sculpted in, and also the pupil was sculpted inwards, that it was a little hard to reach, but a fun miniature to paint just the same!
  16. Hello again all you fine Reaper folk! So a few months back I did an EBay auction to help out Mike and Melissa Noe, the president of Iron Wind Metals and his wife, as Melissa has been diagnosed with cancer and the bills I imagine are going to be quite considerable. I'd painted and sold a rare Molydeus miniature, from the Ral Partha TSR Planescape range, and it did okay out there. I wanted to try to see if I could I could continue on with this idea of painting for charity, so I've painted another one for Mike and Melissa, whose proceeds are going to go directly again to them so they can pay off medical bills. With this one I wanted something again old, rare and classic and I still had one of these old lead monsters hanging around, so I've painted up Tom Meier's three headed troll again: Bizarrely enough I've painted this figure before already twice, once maybe around 2015 (?), and again back in 2005. I found the old photos actually both in my old Reaper posts: 2015-ish or earlier: and this one I think from around 2005 or so: So I'm apparently not very original, as I keep using the same color scheme but hopefully over the last 17 years or so I've improved a tad, which honestly don't see much improvement between the second and third version, but as you all know we're our own worst critics. Anyhoos, if you ever wanted a reasonably nicely painted version of this mini, knowing that all the money made from its sale is going to a good cause, please feel free to go out to EvilBay and place a bid, or tell your friends and neighbors, spread the word. I actually sold that first and oldest 3 Stooges troll aeons ago on EBay, thinking it would go to a Ral Partha collector, but apparently the guy that bought it was a fan of the Three Stooges, who would have thunk it? Anyhoos (again) thanks for having a look, hope you enjoy!
  17. Hi again all you Reaper cats and kittens! here's the other miniature I just finished a bit ago, another flying unicorn piloted by a fairy with an attitude. This is one of the miniatures that Tom Meier back in the day sculpted for his daughter, who had the actual concept for the miniature and then later sold them under his Thunderbolt Mountain label. Well, years after Thunderbolt Mountain has closed down, it's been resurrected at the Ral Partha Legacy site, where the fine folk there continue to make some high quality classic miniatures as well as some new sculpts as well. Seems a good moment to mention that they had a Kickstarter that is ending on July 14th with some groovy swell stuff, so might be worth checking out. In the meantime, back to our regularly scheduled program and the flying unicorn: Kind of awkward to photograph, and the pilot/driver/rider isn't in the greatest of focus, but hopefully you all get the idea. I'd done this miniature before, but was asked to do another one for a trio, so here she is. Anyways, hope you all enjoy, and don't forget to check out Ral Partha Legacy's Kickstarter!
  18. Good evening all you Reaperphonics! So this miniature I just finished and photographed this afternoon, he's a Ral Partha Fire Giant, sculpted by Tom Meier back in 1977. I've always liked this Fire Giant, because even though he's not as popular or as well known as the Frost Giant from around that same time, he's still incredibly fun. I think my favorite aspect of this miniature is the fact he is a giant from back in the day, but he is barely larger than a modern Reaper man-sized miniature nowadays. When I remember to I'll have to do a size comparison photo for you all, always fun. So anyways, here he is: I wanted him to have coal black skin and flame-colored hair, so I think that kind of turned out okay. The one thing I was kind of doubtful about was his eyes. My doubt was whether or not to give him maybe red pupils, but ultimately decided against it and just gave him flaming eyes as well. I really love this figure. He's actually currently available at Ral Partha Legacy, but the one I painted was actually an old lead one I've had sitting around for a long time and had just never gotten around to painting. I should probably also put in a little plug here, the Ral Partha Legacy Chaos Wars Kickstarter is just about over, ends July 14th, so if you've got a love for classic miniatures and the sculpting of Tom Meier, it is definitely worth checking out!
  19. Hello everybody, related to the Kickstarter, but also just some really nice videos that Ral Partha Legacy did. These are a number of interviews with Tom Meier, the sculptor behind the new miniatures and basically behind Ral Partha itself since the seventies, as well as the "discoverer" (can't really say inventory) of how green stuff can be used to sculpt miniatures: https://www.youtube.com/c/RalParthaLegacyLTD/videos Have a look, some videos are longer than others, but all worth seeing if you're interested in miniatures, sculpting, the history of miniatures, et cetera!
  20. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ralparthalegacy/ral-parthas-chaos-wars-wave-4-thunderbolt-mountain Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix. Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages. The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well. Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag. I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one! EDIT: Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:
  21. Hello and good evening all you Reaper Maniacs! So here's a few miniatures I've been meaning to paint but just haven't gotten around to them, you know, too many minis, not enough time. But I did finally get around to these, which are pretty fun, Squidmen with Goo Guns, sculpted by Tom Meier when he had the company Thunderbolt Mountains. These are miniatures that his son had designed. and here they are as the actual group/blister pack they come in: Anyhoos, quite enjoyable and reasonably simple to paint, hope you guys and gals all enjoy!
  22. Hello everybody on the penultimate day of the Reaper Bones 6 Kickstarter! So here's another figure I've been sitting on for a while, painted it I think already a couple years back but never posted or showed it off because he wasn't yet available. Well he was recently released over at Ral Partha Legacy, so it's time to show him off! Back in the eighties, if I recall correctly, Tom Meier sculpted a whole bunch of troglodytes, I think with the Ral Partha/Citadel collaboration back then, and when Ral Partha Legacy had one of their Kickstarters, they re-released those older figures. A little bit later Tom Meier sculpted this little fellow up, a sorcerer/priest/leader for whatever group of trogs you might end up gathering. He has a pretty long base so he got stuck on one of their mount bases. and kind of funny, now that I start thinking about it, I've been using the only other Partha Troglodyte that I've painted as my avatar: I might want to change that, I don't feel like an ugly lizard.......
  23. Good evening Reaperhoochagans! So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies: and here they are together: This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy! EDIT: adding a link to the original set of fairies: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94511-thunderbolt-mountainral-partha-legacy-ballerina-fairies-by-tom-meier/#comment-1995386
  24. Hello all you Reapertoniks! Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately? Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!
  25. Hello Reapervites! So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little. With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows. So anyhoos, here are three more: Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner. My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better! So enjoy!
