Hello again all you fine Reaper folk! So a few months back I did an EBay auction to help out Mike and Melissa Noe, the president of Iron Wind Metals and his wife, as Melissa has been diagnosed with cancer and the bills I imagine are going to be quite considerable. I'd painted and sold a rare Molydeus miniature, from the Ral Partha TSR Planescape range, and it did okay out there. I wanted to try to see if I could I could continue on with this idea of painting for charity, so I've painted another one for Mike and Melissa, whose proceeds are going to go directly again to them so they can pay off medical bills. With this one I wanted something again old, rare and classic and I still had one of these old lead monsters hanging around, so I've painted up Tom Meier's three headed troll again: Bizarrely enough I've painted this figure before already twice, once maybe around 2015 (?), and again back in 2005. I found the old photos actually both in my old Reaper posts: 2015-ish or earlier: and this one I think from around 2005 or so: So I'm apparently not very original, as I keep using the same color scheme but hopefully over the last 17 years or so I've improved a tad, which honestly don't see much improvement between the second and third version, but as you all know we're our own worst critics. Anyhoos, if you ever wanted a reasonably nicely painted version of this mini, knowing that all the money made from its sale is going to a good cause, please feel free to go out to EvilBay and place a bid, or tell your friends and neighbors, spread the word. I actually sold that first and oldest 3 Stooges troll aeons ago on EBay, thinking it would go to a Ral Partha collector, but apparently the guy that bought it was a fan of the Three Stooges, who would have thunk it? Anyhoos (again) thanks for having a look, hope you enjoy!
Ral Partha dwarf, caster, and three headed ogre
72moonglum posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSo I'd been working on these for a while now, but didn't post them because they were gifts for some folks and didn't want them to accidentally see them before they got them. First up is the Moe, Larry and Curly three stooges ogre from Ral Partha, the one that Partha was ordered to cease and desist producing because of using the stooges' images without permission. The next one is Ral the Caster, which was based off one of their casters back in the day. They also used that figure in a catalog or two to show size comparisons with other models. The last one is a female dwarf, to my knowledge probably their first female dwarf character, which was only released very briefly and there was never any photo of her in any catalog. She only showed up as a general line description in the catalog and soon ceased to be.... Anyhows, hope you all enjoy!
