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!
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!
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......
So here's the results of my first lesson in NMM. Thanks, Anne! Overall I have to say I'm pretty happy with how he came out (I hope you're sitting down!). I also went a bit further with the hair thanks to ttuckerman mentioning Oiled Leather as a shade for blond hair, and I decided to punch up a couple highlights in my quest to work on my contrast. Now I need to go back and revamp my cloth and leather techniques! I like the effect I got glazing a dark red over the little scroll case or whatever it is, tucked between the sheaths and bedroll. Tried for some blue/green eyes but it didn't photograph well. I'll probably get an eyeroll (hah) from my fiancee, she likes to make fun of the freaky eyes I give characters in video games. And for fun, here's an elf I did back in the 90s for comparison. Finally, you can see the WIP in http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47264-groupopenwip-l2pk3/'>this thread.
