  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Hi again everybody! So my last little chunk of miniatures, another quartet, is a group of miniatures that will be re-released under the Chaos Wars Kickstarter guise in the near future at Ral Partha. Their next Kickstarter will highlight dwarves and undead, as well as a nice assortment of new and old figures, one of which is a new 25 mm scale Vampire Queen from Julie Guthrie which is just beautiful. So anyhoos, here they are! I added three different views of the dwarf with the mattock/pick and shield because he's kind of interesting from all angles with his pose. The other three are pretty straight forward. I should also mention that I took these photos with my new iPhone 6S, which really did end up turning out a lot better than my little Canon.
  5. 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:
  6. These are some exquisite wood elves by Tom Meier, legendary founding sculptor for Ral Partha who has in the intervening decades honed his craft to an astounding degree. These are Thunderbolt Mountain #8042 Wood Elf Lord, #8043 Wood Elf Lady, #8044 Wood Elf Noble in Traveling clothes, and #8045 Wood Elf Noble Lady in Traveling clothes. A few things: The site says they are 30mm scale, but if so they are really tiny. They are based on pennies. Here they are between some Reaper figures (03566: Valloa, Elf Thief and 77131: Finaela, Pirate) for comparison: I feel these elves look more like high elves than wood elves. I feel strongly that the Wood Elf Noble in Traveling Clothes is meant to be holding something in his outstretched hand, a spear or a sword perhaps. The Wood Elf Lady is more plump than is standard, and looks wonderful. The lord and lady have bird-shaped crowns embracing the backs of their heads. The amount of exquisite detail is staggering. The faces are so tiny and so realistic I did not even attempt to paint detailed eyes, just suggestions. Photos behind spoiler tags. #8042 Wood Elf Lord #8043 Wood Elf Lady #8044 Wood Elf Noble in Traveling clothes #8045 Wood Elf Noble Lady in Traveling clothes Ancient WIP here. Year end finishing up minis thread here.
  7. So here are two new Goblins I just painted from the end of the seventies/beginning of the eighties. Here are two I can show but putting in a link for the other one, because much as Tom Meier's Orcs like to have their dorks hang out, this little goblin has his giblets showing. I'm not too happy with the lighting on these, but it seems that I can't seem to get a better exposition. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/b/b9/Kickstarter_goblin_archer_with_helmet_1.jpg
  8. So here are the last three orcs I've been working on, some figures from Ral Partha. With the standard bearer, I've only provided one view at an angle because all other views, in classic eighties Partha form, show some orc dork hanging out. Those orcses just don't wear their underwear. Anyhow, I've actually got nine of these painted up, which is quite a record for myself to work on something that is the same theme. Enjoy!
  9. Hi all, I just keep plugging away at the classics! This time, a Tom Meier elf from Ral Partha, with sword, shield and bow. I tried to go for kind of a woodlandish color scheme, greens and yellows, so don't know how well I succeeded in that. Photo came out a tad light, but in any case, hope you all enjoy!
  10. So I keep working through all these wonderful little Partha figures, and here's my last one. Another goblin, this time an archer, sculpted by Tom Meier in the latter seventies probably. One of the other figures Ral Partha was releasing again on their Kickstarter campaign. Hopefully I was able to convey a bit of muted, dirty colors. Enjoy!
  11. So I've been working on these recently, really small fellows, with their respective wolves. I didn't want to go for grey wolves, so tried to make them brown, mangy and dirty looking. Someday later I want to paint some grey wolves and maybe white and black when I have time. They really didn't take too long to paint. Another thing I figured out afterwards is I probably sat them too high on the wolves, but once you actually put them on with Super Glue, there is unfortunately no going back. They are also a bit separated from the wolves, but on those two lunging wolves, hopefully it looks at least like they are bouncing up and down on them. I've put them in at a bunch of different angles. So anyway, hope you enjoy!
  12. So finally have finish the third elf in my little Tom Meier trilogy of the All American elves. Just got this one done and based, and reasonably happy with him. Kind of took forever to choose colors and they are a bit more lively than the other two I did.
  13. So just finished this one this evening, getting the grass glued on to the base. I think this one looks better in person than it does in the photo just because of how the photo actually came out, but I've been whining a lot about my photography lately, so it's probably just me. Anyway, tried to keep kind of a cool but basic color palette, ended up imitating the Estonian flag quite a lot. This one is from the same series as the other elf I just finished, sculpted by Tom Meier, in the eighties at some point, need to look at the base to check. Anyhow, enjoy!
  14. So here's an elf that I picked up that was originally from a series I think from the nineties over at Ral Partha, called the All American series. Not sure why it was called that. I'm not sure if it's because all the sculptors were American (but I don't think Bob Olley is, so that idea probably doesn't hold water) or if it's because they were physically sculpted in the U.S. of A., or for some other mysterious reason. Anyhoos, here is one of them, an elf with some slightly in my mind Oriental armor on, short sword and a bow. I've got a couple more of these that I'm working on hopefully in the near future, just need time and energy.
  15. Hi all! So after a long time without finishing any miniatures due to external factors, I finally got these two done. These two trolls are in one of the Ral Partha Chaos War Kickstarter add-on sets, pulled way back from the prehistory of Ral Partha. They were figures sculpted by Tom Meier probably back in the very early eighties and either never really released or released extremely few pieces. in any case they are bringing this one back and I had a chance to paint one. Trolls are usually pictured as green, but I was so sick of painting green skin after tons of orcs, goblins, and imps that I really needed a change, so went with purple. I actually used as my base tone, a purple that I received from Reaper with my last paint order, one of their unlabeled freebies (thanks Reaper!) so I don't even really know what color it was, but after that, worked my way down through other purples and dark elf skin to Walnut brown, and then from that purple through some flesh tones up to white. The smock I actually painted linen white and the started doing various washes. Once again, I seem to have painted a very clean dirty monster! Anyhow enjoy!
  16. So here are a few more I just finished, three little goblin-imps from Ral Partha, sculpted around 1979 or so I think. These guys are really pretty puny, and I'm linking two of them because they've got there little impy parts a' dangling. Originally I didn't them to be so green. I actually started them off with a base coat of Golden Blond, but then I guess with the progressive washes of different and sundry greens, browns and Dark Elf skin triads made them greener than I anticipated. Oh well, such is life. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Kickstarter_Goblin_imp_with_javelins.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Kickstarter_goblin_imp_with_scimitar.jpg
  17. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_drum_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_scimitar_behind_shield_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_scimitar_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_standard_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_swinging_scimitar_front.jpg So I just finished painting these Ral Partha orcs, ones that will have ended up coming from their Kickstarter. I had to link them, because the majority of them have their orc dorks dangling about. Not utterly happy with the lighting, look a tad washed out, but maybe I'll try to take some better pictures later. Painting five similar models at the same time can kind of seem like it takes forever, especially with the limited time I typically have to paint. I kind of got a bit more time to paint this week though, so just got these finished up today. Enjoy!
  18. http://ralpartha.com/index.php/blog/12-ral-partha-video So as Iron Wind Metals is celebrating Ral Partha's 40th anniversary, they have created a new web site, a work in progress, that promises to have new and interesting content over the coming months, also aligning with their Kickstarter which should be starting at some point today, and one of the things they have put on the site is a set of short videos. The most interesting one I think is the Tom Meier interview, even though the other ones are interesting as well. Have a look!
  19. Ok, this is the 3rd stage of the ranger from Partha 3-stage that I'm painting up to be my captain of the guard. I have the other 2 painted and plan to post all three when this is done as a kinda 3-stage progress meter. I decided to start him as well as I had extra skintone left over from fixing Tyden and the Bones wench. This is a 25mm figure and a Tom Meier sculpt (Yea Lost Mini Wiki). I'm not sure if I can get the eyes any better. Have 3 projects going. This will be my resevre projects while I try to finish up the other 2.
  20. It's been an age since I've had time to post anything as I'm again participating in a 3 month Winter Painting Challenge. This year we have 70 painters from 14 different countries, so we will raise a substantial sum for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Since December 5th I've painted 40 figures which puts me in 50th place. The top painter has done over 1,000 figures. I am rather a small fry, but I do have loads of fun being a part of it all. Recently I painted this female. She is a Lady in Waiting and was sculpted by Tom Meier. It's unlikely that I'll have much time to stop in until late March. I wish you all the best and do miss you. Thank you for looking.
  21. I picked up some Thunderboltmountain high elf archers. These minis are amazing but aside from my ability to do the sculpt justice I have some concerns about painting them. First, their scale and chain mail armor is so fine that I'm worried about losing detail through priming and painting them. Like wise the detail on the middle archer's fringe is extremely shallow. Is my best bet priming with brush on primer, an airbrush or, I guess possibly, a spray can? Secondly, I haven't really been doing that much dry brushing lately and when I have, I've not been impressed with my results. What's the best way to bring out the texture of the chain/scale armor? I'm thinking of trying to drybrush with a fine haired and very dry brush. Any tips would be very appreciated because these guys are in a different league from what I've painted before (my mind was blown when I noticed the texture on the anyway very slim straps) and I'd rather not have to strip too many minis learning what not to do.
  22. I have really enjoyed working on this mini. If you read the WIP you will see the biggest hurdle in painting him was the sword arm ! Sir Kay didn't reach the Ripe old Noble age he had; by being ignorant, nor learning a few treacherous tricks of his own. As he walked past the old monastic ruins the Goblins Attacked ! He grabbed his walking staff and with a swift twirl; he had the hidden sword in hand. He dropped the staff at his feet, and protected himself. Here is Sir Kay. Comments and Critiques are always Invited and appreciated!
  23. I've selected Sir Kay standing as my next Miniature. Bare faced so I get to practice face painting, and this is a tough one. Mustache, and face is blocked by that right arm. Right off the bat I see some major challenges. So lots to conquer here, in a one inch miniature. I think Sir kay is going to be a mixture of purples, and silver, maybe my beloved Gun Metal also for contrast with those Purples. I've already started on him. Primed, lined, and rudimentary face on him. I also am painting as a senior knight (isn't that nicely politically correct)..LOL. He's Old...His armor says that about him. Here he is:
  24. I finished Guinevere the Queen from Thunderbolt Mountain a few days ago. Thought I would post her here now. This is a small mini, so I included a photo of a 28mm to let you see the scale. I adore working on Tom Meier's works, his sculpting is amazing; and he has this habit of putting a little surprise in his miniatures, that you discover when you start washing the figures. Once you start doing his stuff you get addicted real fast. I made the figure a bit darker since I was loosing her face in the photographs. Photography is such a pain when they are this small ! So anyway, here is Guinevere the Queen.
  25. Has been an Extremely busy weekend. Got up this morning, then cleaned and primed Queen Guinevere from Thunderbolt Mtn. Spent a lot of time with files, and x-acto knife. So after all the Frogs, I will be taking my time on a 25mm sculpt. So, The adventure Begins.
