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 If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf: Water Elemental Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman! So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days. For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors? In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest. The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently. Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about. I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future. And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site. Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)! Mark aka 72Moonglum
Am painting up Stieg Brinegrog as a crewman/bosun and Sushanthe as either a warden or a pearl diver. Was a bit annoyed with the stieg figure as smaller than I was expecting. Had a go at tattoos just using a 0.4 black drawing pen. Will glaze back over them. Am deliberately trying to have brighter colours for the sea elf so went for dark skin as a contrast and will highlight everything back up.
So on my quest to finish up this set of four elves, I just completed the sea elf last night. I don't say this too often, but I think I'm really glad the way this one turned out, at least colorwise, as I was using a very limited color palette and was using sea-oriented colors that Reaper makes, like Seafoam Blue, Marine Teal, Clouded Sea, which are paints that I bought a while back but really haven't taken advantage of. With this color scheme in mind I may very well try to do some other aquatically themed figures in the near future. Now out of this set 11-422 from way back in the day I've got one more figure left, a drow assassin, who will be up next as soon as I finish him.
Hello! I'm starting a new project, an underwater adventuring party. I've ordered a group of miniatures for it: I've been mostly painting Games Workshop stuff for the last few years, so I'm hoping this will be a nice change of pace.
