Three more Ral Partha Chaos Wars Orcs
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo 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!
Ral Partha Barbarian with Sword and Shield
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo finally finished my quartet of figures from an old Ral Partha set of adventurers. Finished up the basing this morning at around four, woke up out of the blue and got working on it. Finished the last touches up on the shield, which I'm okay with even though I seem to have an odd pattern with shields of just painting faces on them. I've done that with a drow figure, a gnoll, and some dwarf chick, who had a goblin with his head removed at the shoulders. Anyhow, happy to finally have this done. Next will be to work on the four clerics I've got sitting out there.
Ral Partha Thief, Barbarian and Female Mage
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo finally got three of the four figures from this old Ral Partha set finished, and I'm reasonably happy with the figures even if not so much with the photography. I've still got the Northern barbarian, AKA the most boring miniature in the world to finish, but hopefully I'll get to work on him some more this weekend. Anyhow, enjoy!
Ral Partha Cloud Giant
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo I've finally finished my last of my Ral Partha giant quartet. Just got the grass put on about thirty minutes ago and might need a slight non-giant break for a wee bit. With this one, figuring he was a cloud giant, I actually used rainy gray, then cloudy gray as his main colors and worked from there. It's a little monochromatic with whites, greys and black, but added just a tad bit of color with his shield belt buckle (it's supposed to be a cloud with a lightning bolt in case anybody's wondering). I also tried giving him some pink eyes as I could just kind of see some adventurers picking out two pink pinpoints coming out of a foggy morning. Not so happy however with the picture but it might be because it's a grey giant with a grey background behind him. Anyways, enjoy!
Ral Partha Hill Giant
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo on my quest to continue painting old, classic Ral Partha miniatures, here's my latest! This is the second version of the Ral Partha hill giant that was made probably around 1978 or so. I didn't actually see the bottom of his base to check for a date. The previous one had more of a kettle helmet with horns and was holding the club in the other hand and it was more at rest instead of having the club over his his. I've got that one as well, but probably won't paint it in the near future because they are too similar. I did consider painting this one as a frost giant, with all the furs and the cape he is wearing, but also, considering I just painted a frost giant, figured I'd paint him more traditionally as a hill giant. I did end up putting some snow on the ground however, as he looked so warmly dressed it just kind of invited snow to the base. So anyway, enjoy!
Ral Partha Hill Giant, second version
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo as I continue painting old miniatures, here's the next one up, an old Ral Partha Hill Giant, which I think is the updated/remodeled one of the first one I'd done before http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49658-ral-partha-hill-giant/ . I usually just put up one photo of the front, but this one is kind of at an odd striding angle and has a few little details which seemed to have merited more than one angle. My favorite part of this figure ended up actually being his pet or snack in his European shoulder bag. Anyhow, hope you enjoy!
Ral Partha Frost Giant
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo here's a Ral Partha frost giant miniature, nice old iconic figure from the end of the seventies. I really like the way he came out, even though with the lighting on the photo, a bit of the deeper colors are kind of lost. One thing I did with this figure that I wasn't expecting was in a lot of the shading ended up using the dark elf skin triad, which gave it even more depth (which once again in the picture isn't sadly too obvious). Being he was a frost giant, I wanted that dead white skin, which is a lot lighter than a previous version I'd done some years before: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Es57.jpg I was tempted to paint his hair "blond" as per the Monster Manual but kept with a very white and blue theme. His actual hair started out as pure white and his skin as leather white with lots of washes of different blues, grays and dark elf skin colors. Anyhow, enjoying a nice, old classic figure.
Ral Partha Vallor Captain
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo here's another miniature that I just finished, going way back with the year 1976 etched on the bottom of the base. It's an odd figure but kind of interesting. Kind of reminds me of a Don Quijote type of character. This is really, really old Ral Partha, some of their first fantasy figures that they made. It's actually pretty large, maybe close to 54 mm or so? The runes on the banner were actually harder than I thought they woud be because they were actually carved into the banner, so they aren't something I created, but rather tried tracing over first in black, then in palomino gold. My NMM armor, as always, I have mixed emotion about, but keep practicing at. Anyway, some of you will get waves of revulsion at such an old figure, but I think many more will get waves of nostalgia...
