  1. Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes. The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use. As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end u
  2. It only took me 35+ years to paint these.... Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/ I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow
  3. Hello all those in Reaperdom! So just finished this figure last night and just got him photographed, an Earth Elemental Lord, sculpted by Jim Johnson. Tried to keep him mostly in earth tones because he's an Earth Elemental Lord: His original blister came with a large earth elemental and a little elemental lizard. Going to be painting those in the near future. Enjoy!
  4. Hello all you Reapervellians, So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these. These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
  5. Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.
  6. And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion, So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon. This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next. This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties. Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones. The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue. I wanted to origi
  7. Good morning my Reapertonians! So recently I've been not only just doing individual figures, but also "sets", figured belonging or previously belonging to blister packs and today is no exception. I just finished painting a set of Ral Partha Town Guards, sculpted back in the 90's I think by Jim Johnson. As I go through a lot of my minis, it's impressive of what a large library of work Mr. Johnson has created. All this and I know virtually nothing about the guy. Anyhoos, being that these are town guards from the same town, I wanted them to all have a simila
  8. Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes! So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell. As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with: The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out: Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space. So I did what I could. Anyway hope you all enjoy!
  9. I love me some weekend painting! Got another one from the 90's batch of Ral Partha's. This one is a Drow Elf. Was feeling like trying some of the darker skin tones after watching another RVE on it. Feels pretty good! BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Skin combo: Black Brown, Black Red, Orange Red. Used in conjunction with one another. The highlights are still on the darker side, but you can still make out muscle and shape. Win! * Used copper/brown combo to bring this guy to life. Feels very warm, but still needs some kind of "pop" color somewhere. I
  10. Gotta love the weekend. Time to get caught up on some minis! This particular mini is sentimental to me. I had picked them up back in 1990 when I was just finding my way with painting. Sadly, it would only be a few years before I found sports and other things to occupy my time and left the hobby for 30 years. 30 years later, though I'm rearing to go! My parents send these minis to me that they found at the old house and I happily take them. A few were somewhat painted and a few were only primed. This is one that was somewhat painted, but nothing I felt reluctant
  11. Tere Reaperlased! So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line. This is apparently version two of the miniature. The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur Julie Guthrie Hill Giant Julie Guthrie Centaurs Anyhoos, here she is: and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against o
  12. I am not good at telling stories on paper. my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself. this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s. The piece is high lead content. so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving. The setting on the box seems to be some type of sul
  13. Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again. The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes. This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific. This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today. Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I know Ral Partha lives on as Ir
  14. Hello everyreaperbody! So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize. Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out and here they are together: Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one. Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby. I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago. Don't have any
  15. I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored. These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again. I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried. These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal. They even had packaging that read "now lead free". What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way
  16. this is one of those miniatures that has sat on my shelf of shame for far too many years (or decades even!). I got this as a used mini over 20 years ago which a paintjob that was actually flaking off the miniature. In addition I was missing a few parts, namely one leg and a wing bone. So I stripped the mini and put it in a baggy with the rest of my dragons. and time passed.... about 4 months ago I opened up an unrelated box containing a keep wall from Games Workshop and there, lying in the box are the old pieces to the Bridge of Sorrows. I looked it over and I decid
  17. And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020! So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy. His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits. My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  18. Hello guys! I'm not sure if this is the place to put this and I don't think it's permissible to put links to other web sites, but just as some general information, Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, that was a company that Tom Meier had founded quite a many years ago after leaving Ral Partha, are once again available, and being cast through a subsidiary company of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy. They are working on releasing some classic Partha for their Chaos Wars game, other miniatures that were previously out of production, and of special note, miniatures from Thunderbolt
  19. Hello again Reaper Message Boardonians! So here's another piece of old school goodness, a Ral Partha Charging Barbarian, sculpted by Julie Guthrie way back in the delightful eighties. This one was originally in one of the Partha Boxed sets, 98-015 Bezerkers, and now is sold individually at Iron Wind Metals. Pretty quick to paint as he was unencumbered by too much armor, clothing or general stuff. My biggest challenge with this fellow was to figure out his hair color. Blonde eventually won the day. Anyhoos, please enjoy!
  20. So for those who celebrate such things, I hope you all had a really nice Thanksgiving as well as a beautiful Black Friday! So I finished these a few days ago, but have kind of been a bit busy for posting. They both have shields, but only one of them I had to worry about putting a "something" on the shield. I didn't know exactly what to put on there, so ended up with a little green face with X'd out eyes. There was still space so painted a little triangle. No great significance, just filling in some space. Being I was painting them too both at the same time and in the
  21. Hi guys and gals, So just painted these two, which were pretty simple jobs being they didn't have too many things hanging off of them. These are bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier, back in 1983. I had always thought these were odd kind of figures, because my other concept of bugbears at the time were the Monster Manual version as well as the two Grenadier bugbears that were available at the time. One of my future projects is to paint the Grenadier bugbears as well, plus some more recent Partha bugbears and I think I have somewhere the female bugbear by Reaper that I'd like to paint
  22. Hi guys and guyettes! So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas: He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go. Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs. If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually
  23. Hello to all the forumites of this fine page! So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base. I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one: and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf: Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords
  24. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie. "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.
  25. Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related! So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him. He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian: In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world: Super-fun
