  1. Third Party member is the second healer in the group. A druid dedicated to purging the evil from her forest, and her faithful companion, her leopard, {er sabertooth variety?) Kevin. one of the Bones KS1 original package. Can anyone Identify her? the mini was pretty nice but she has no face. What you see is painted on to a rather blank slate. The cat is a modified Ral Partha Sabertooth tiger. Modified for a long tail and given a mild hair trimming. The two make a pretty good pairing. Sorry about the photos. using an autofocus camera has its downside. Comments questions and Critiques welcome.
  2. Hi all, so today is my official first day of a two week long vacation. Where my wife works she has to take every year two weeks straight and I'm more than happy to accompany her in those two weeks of non-work, AKA vacation. My wife's sister and a friend have come to visit this year and we're going to spend five days in Estes Park but the rest of the time we'll be home, so I'm also going to try to get as much painting done as possible, mostly before everybody wakes up or when the ladies go shopping. One of the things that happened was our spare room is being used, where I normally paint, so I've been sent to the dungeon otherwise known as the basement, unfinished and with only one electrical outlet.
  3. Rushed to finish this guy before I go out of town for the weekend may strip and reprint.
  4. This is one of several old Ral Partha (now Iron Wind Metals) Shadowrun sculpts I've painted recently. She is one of three cybertroll figures in the set 20-563, "Wolfram's Gang". I deliberately painted her up in some of the colors of 'eighties fashions. I painted other cyber-trolls at the same time: Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, Ral Partha's Lord Torgo, another member of "Wolfram's Gang" who I painted up all tattooed, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and an ork woman street samurai. The WIP thread for all of them and several more is here.
  5. When these came out I was playing Bard's Tale on my Commodore 64, walking around with boots, a bandana and jean jacket riddled with heavy metal patches while just listening to Metallica on my walkman, a few years before they sold out. :) Ral Partha - Dealers of Devastation Skeletons circa 1986 I did make a bit of a mistake on picking this up. I didn't realize that Ral Partha stuff was a smaller scale than Reaper. Nobody at the house seems to notice though and they seem to fit in quite well with the other baddies.
  6. I've been going back and forth over starting a WIP for these because I've been noodling on them for a while and they're pretty far along. But hey. Perhaps this will be an incentive to get cracking and finish them. These are some official and unofficial Shadowrun figures, cyberpunk biggish humanoids, Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, and a couple of trolls and an ork from Ral Partha, currently available from Iron Wind Metals (there's another ork, a decker, in this WIP). They're big. They're futuristic (for a particularly 1980s vision of the future). They're tech and camp and fun. I am trying to do Reaper's cybertroll in red and green without making him look too Christmasy. I am still pretty new to pinning; his hands and gun are still separate. This is an old Ral Partha cybertroll. I am trying to do some object-source-lighting on him, as if he were in shiny armor in the city at night, with orangeish city lights reflected from the cloud cover above and different colored lights from different directions. At the moment he looks pretty awful. I used the colors of 'eighties fashions on the female troll, which my have been a bit mean. This is as far as I know Ral Partha's -- indeed, anybody's -- only female Shadowrun ork. She is, let's face it, grotesque. I like the newest Shadowrun edition's illustrations of actually attractive orks, but so far there's no figures like that available. This is Lord Torgo, a particularly nasty troll character from the Shadowrun universe. He's pretty over the top. There is a chain which goes between his hands and a rifle and axe for his back which I haven't glued on yet.
  7. So I'm considering in the near future painting an old Ral Partha chimera sculpted in the eighties by sculpting goddess Julie Guthrie. Here's my dilemma: should I paint each piece of the beast according to its natural color ( lion part tawny brown, goat black/white/grey, and dragon red/green) or do I take an approach where I would paint the whole figure red with a black mane? Opinions from the peanut gallery would be extremely welcome! Thanks, Mark
  8. Hi all, So here are the last two I've painted up, to nice little lions sculpted way back in around 1982 ( or at least that's what the bottom of them say ) by painting legend and goddess Julie Guthrie. I'm kind of on my lion- colored kick with my manticore before these and the next one is my chimera also by Julie Guthrie that I'll be trying to finish up next. The bases were literally one millimeter too big to actually set on one of the middle-size bases, so I ended up putting them on large bases. I really did just a quick bit of dirt and grass, didn't want to bother with any stones or anything like that. I ended up finding that the poor Winsor and Newton Series 7 size two brush that I'd given up for detail work works really nicely for base coats and bases and general coverage, so that's inspiring. Anyway hope you enjoy them! Mark
  9. The adventure continues. First up, the only Reaper mini I've stumbled across in the several lots I've bought on Ebay, a Guardian Wraith by Bob Ridolfi: I recently saw dispensed some advice about highlighting black with turquoise. So I tried that, here--a very light turquoise. I liked the looks of it, so I also used that for the detailing on the shield, hoping to get a glowing look. And then there's Lanah the Lost, Barbarian Princess, from Ral Partha's Fantasy Adventurers line: My first bikini-babe warrior-chick. Love love love this sculpt, even if it is a little ridiculous. I really made an effort not to holdback with the highlights on her. I double washed with Reaper's flesh wash and then dry-brushed with what I felt was a super-light tone to try and make her pop. Also, the first butt cheeks I've painted. And finally Grenadier's Necromancer (or Illusionist (Evil): Another sculpt I love (though it's a wee wonky in a couple spots). I really wanted to embrace the Necromancer sort of feel to this piece that was at least sometimes billed as a necromancer, so I thought blue was the way to go. Hoping it's popping. I also assumed it to be glowing, and I tried to limit my highlighting to areas affected by that glow--not OSL or whatnot, obviously, but I'm kind of feeling that general territory out. Don't know if it even remotely makes sense as-is or not. But. Yeah. Also tried making a little wood grain on the staff. As always, I'm totally open to feedback, especially if it'll help me improve. Thanks for looking.
  10. So here's what I've been working on the most lately, a manticore from the old Children of the Night series from Ral Partha, circa 1979. Sculpted by Dennis Mize, it' s a figure I've always really liked, but have never gotten around to painting. My biggest problem was basically just deciding what color to make his wings. I decided though in the end on Black and Red, and I took a few pictures of him because he's a figure that you need to kind of see from all around, even though he's really pretty simple. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  11. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-244.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-246A.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-248A.jpg So after painting a bunch of clerics and adventurers, and stuff with armor and loads of stuff, I just wanted to paint something relatively simple, so I grabbed these three chicks. I wanted slightly different skin tones, so the one lying down started as fair skin, the one standing was tanned highlights, and the chick with the black hair has a base color of terran khaki. I also just wanted some really simple bases so just put them on bases, covered them as flatly as possible, and just painted a monochrome, very basic base for each one. As I look at their pictures amplified, I see a whole bunch of issues, but oh well. The one thing I'm not too happy about is how it seems the terran khaki chick is a bit shiny. I might have put too much sealer on her, or too much sealer/not enough water mix. Anyway, these are all a bunch of really old figures from around 1979, sculpted by Dennis Mize for the Children of the Night range.
  12. Been working a little. First up, my first (!) orc: Thought we had him identified as a Gladiator from Ral Partha's Legion Of Death set, but I've since come to think that may not be quite right. Does appear to fit with that set. I'unno. If anyone has further ID'ing info, much appreesh. Is that an okay green? For an orc? Serious question. A Dwarf Clansman that I guess Marauder put out through Citadel. Or something like that. I kind of love this sculpt, in its simplicity. Shield's been swapped out for a plastic replacement, I guess. I thought about trying to free-hand something on it but chickened out. Totally can't draw. Base was in poor shape and I haven't decided what to do with it, yet. May try some fake gravel (I've learned I hate the grass flock, but anyway) Any feedback and advice is extremely appreciated.
  13. Hope it's okay to post this just for appreciation's sake. I do have some actual Reaper minis and Bones I want to post, but this is what I photographed first. This old Ral Partha figure from the 80's was one of my test characters when I started using the MSP's I got earlier this year. This is all new to me except I painted horribly with (gasp) Testors on this guy and all my old figures during the 90s. Hey, we was poor. You can see how I wanted to immediately strip the paint off this guy and go at it with your paints. I learned a lot reading the boards. I had some Bob Ross painting under my belt along with the figures from my old D&D days. I painted the entire line from the Talisman board game first, so I got better with shadowing and whatnot as I went along. I did nothing like this back in the 90's when I painted my original characters though. These paints are awesome! Thank you for making an old hobby even better. My son and I will enjoy painting these together for quite awhile. You might find it funny that I made my base out of a piece of clear plastic cut from a package that may have had mini hooks or hangers, then attached what was really a small base for the figure with hot glue. No, it gets better. Those rocks? Big globs o' glue! lol You could probably make quite a lot from it, like whips and things you might want flexible. This base is all hardened though. I used some kitchen items for basing as some suggested here and gave him a highlander touch. This was always one of my favorites with the dragonscale and sword, so it just begged for some MSP love. I'll post the more relevent figures here soon.
  14. My Bones Zombies with some reposing and headswapping: A Ral Partha Ghoul (11-434) painted at the same time: And since I love group shots, here is the horde:
  15. So probably technically still an "oldie", even though not too old. Last night when I put it on its base it showed if I remember correctly 2003 on the bottom. This is one of the Arcana Unearthed figures from Ral Partha sculpted I think by a gentleman named John Winter(s).. I started working on this two weekends ago along with the two demons I just finished in my whirlwind weekend painting marathon that never got quite as far as I wanted it to, but finally it's done. I wanted whites and greys and the only real regret I have is that I didn't do any eye shadow/mascara on the witch, but after I finished the eyes, I was happy enough with them that I didn't want to tempt fate with some blue washes so close to the eyes. I should have actually done them before I put the white and the irises on the eyes, but oh well, live and learn. Anyway enjoy. The snow is baking power/soda (the one that comes in the can with the flat lip to even off the spoon), stuck on with super glue. For the front view I took two photos. Which one do you guys prefer?
  16. I started this guy almost 10 years ago just putting base colors on him, but was never sure what else to do with him. Recently I saw him on a shelf and decided to finish him. Someday I hope to paint his blister brother and their big brother the greater wolf spider. I painted his eyes blue to try and make him look a little different. I'm not sure if it works or if it is even all that noticable. Hmmm. I'm seeing some places I need to touch up now and I think I need to do more with the fur on his face. now that I see it close up. maybe he's not finished yet. Criticisms and suggestions are appreciated.
  17. So it seems like it's taken forever, but I've finally got these all finished. Upon retrospect, I should have probably used less grass on the bases, but oh well, too late to cried over spilled grass.
  18. Okay, just because it's kind of fun to record this kind of stuff, plus if I know I'm posting progress, I actually have to make some progress, I'm going to start up a new WIP. With this one, it's going to be a chunk of figures so it will probably last forever, but I've really got no hurry, so we'll see how this all goes. So I've got nine figures I'm going to put on this WIP, eight Ral Partha figures, and Yephima, my only and favorite Bones figure, so I'll also give my general impressions perhaps with some base of experience behind me, even though not too much for just as single figure. Four Ral Partha clerics I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, and then a set of four figures that I really don't remember what they were originally called, sculpted by Dennis Mize. Included in this set is what I remember somewhere from this site as somebody have listed this figure (on the farthest right) as one of the world's most boring figures, so of course I felt obligated to paint it. With these then, I've got them all primed and ready to go! I also primed Yephima with Vallejo brush-on primer, just because I feel I should, even though as I was priming her, I really couldn't see the primer too well.
  19. Here is a Robyn from the Forgotten Realms set. I added to her base the fairy dragon familiar too match her little one on her wrist. Thanks for viewing. C&C welcome.
  20. So 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.
  21. So 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!
  22. These are two octopus-headed psychic baddies, one Reaper's "03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate", and one a classic "Brain Slayer" from Ral Partha, showing a little of the scale creep of the last twenty years. Their mauve-green complexion comes from mixing Phthalo Green with Quinacricone Magenta. Adjusting the mix can give you anything from purple to a surprising deep blue to blue-green. Privately I think of them as "Fred" and "Charley." EDIT: Oh fruitbats, I forgot to reduce the size of one of the photos. Is that going to be a problem, mods? (And weird, editing added all sorts of annoying font tags which I had to remove manually.)
  23. Hi All! so I finished this one's paint job last week, but went on vacation and came back to finish up the base last night. I painted this one as a gift for somebody I'm going to be seeing next month, which hopefully he likes. Don't know if he ever checks this forum out or not, and even if he does I'm pretty sure he has no idea who I am on it so probably not revealing any surprises. I kind of like how this one came out, even though the metal seems to look better in real life. I'm a bit disappointed that inside his helm I couldn't get his eyes to stick out much. They are painted red but it's either not red enough or the shadows are too deep so you really can't see them. Anyway, enjoy!
  24. Here is Tristan from the Forgotten Realms Miniature Set. The lighting is a bit shiny on this figure from the sealer. Thanks for viewing.
  25. Well, here we go with another installment in my Ral Partha Forgotten Realms Miniature Set, Wulfgar son of Beornegar. For the Icewind Dale fans out there, I realize now I could have gone with my same basing method but changed the color to white. Here are some links to previous characters I've finished from the set [Bruenor] [Alias] [Elminster] Thanks for viewing.
