  1. This has been an extremely delightful miniature to paint. I created a WIP (link below) since I decided to break with my standard way of doing things. I made mistakes along the way, and learned from them. I simplified this miniature in line with the sculpting that Tom did. I went for the "feel" of the actions, and didn't try to "pretty it up". I like the power this mini protrudes. So here is The Ancient Wizard. I've included a photo with a quarter to give an idea about scale. As usual, comments and critiques are valued. Here is the Link to the WIP if you are interested in seeing wh
  2. I'm finally abandoning this project!!!! This is Tom Meier's version of Tony DiTerlizzi's painting "Portrait of a Young Tiefling" It's Dark Sword's first foray into busts as far as I know, and it was a joy to paint. Although the sculpt with the base is very vertical, making the overall basing challenging. I ended up just pinning it to as flat a wood base as I could find to keep it from becoming too tall. I have my WIP here if it helps, with the step by steps and all the color info. I'm always happy to answer questions. C&C always welcome! Enjoy!! here's the painting: And t
  3. My Iron wind speed paint. He was just a little guy but I liked him. However I was disappointed when I accidentally over washed him in black and it darkened his purple and red scales too much so that you couldn't really tell the colors. Normally I don't add any more paint a mini that's done, but I felt I needed to add some more purple when I got home to bring him closer to my original "vision".The "Before's" The "After's" I may base him up some day if needed but for now this is what he is.
  4. The Temperature here has been in the Ninety's since I finished painting The Hawkman. I didn't think I finish this next one today. Too hot to go outside, so had extra time to devote to it. Firstly, this is 25MM (that is the size of a U.S. Quarter). The shield is about 1/4 inch in size. I usually keep the basing simple on the Arthurian's since I intend to base them all together into two Dioramas when they are done. When I learn something new, I go back to my beloved Tom Meier sculpts and repeat what I have learned on a much smaller scale. I adore Tom's work, and I will always come back
  5. So here are my last in a series of umpteen dwarves. This last set I think I got a little lazy with as I gave them more or less the same colors of capes, but it's kind of a blue and red color scheme I've been trying to hold on to any way. Anyway, hope you enjoy them!
  6. So as I chug right along, painting these Partha dwarves, my latest two, Elite Armored Dwarf Guards from Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night that were also incorporated into the Chaos Wars Kickstarter campaign for Ral Partha. So with this set of two, I actually have a goodly number (I think three) of blue dwarven shields with big empty spaces on them waiting for some art, but not sure when or if I'd ever get around to providing something on them. If I was just working on an individual figures, it probably would be a little easier, but if I put something on them, I might eve
  7. He is from the Thunderbolt Mountain set #8046, Wood Elf Huntsman w/ Dogs. Like all Thunderbolt Mountain figures they are sculpted by Tom Meier, the legendary talent behind Ral Partha. The set includes two dogs; I painted four of them up here. The wood elf huntsman comes with empty hands and a bow, a sword, and a beautiful curling hunting horn. This is the first time I have glued things into hands and it took a lot of fiddling. The site claims these are 30mm but I don't think they are even 28mm. They are very delicate compared to Reaper elves and their faces (and eyes!) are impossib
  8. This is another piece of Old School lead from the Box O' Goodwill, Ral Partha's"Elf Thief", 01-319B, circa. 1986. It was sculpted by Tom Meier. For a time Ral Partha had sets of adventurers at three stages in their career: Starting out, mid-level, and high-level. This is the middle figure of the male elf thief set (01-319). Original WIP here. The elf was finished in a speedpaint over the Memorial Day Weekend paint binge.
  9. So here are my latest three figures, from the old 3-Stage Player Character line and ones that were also included in the dwarven forces for Ral Partha's latest Kickstarter. I thought of doing them as the same character progressively in his career, but didn't quite end up that way, even though I thought I gave the most experienced of the three in the plate mail a bushy white beard! Anyhoos, enjoy! Long live old school!
  10. So with only a few hours to go in the Ral Partha Chaos War Kickstarter, here are the last few dwarves I was able to finish before it comes to an end. I still have a few (eight or so) pending to paint, but I'll get to those as soon as I can. I tried keeping somewhat with the original blue and red theme I was tasked with, and I realize I should have probably put a design on that big blue shield, but just ran out of time. I also wonder if I should have given that guy some eybrows. Believe it or not, that figure has eyes, you just can't see them at that angle. Anyhow, hope you enjoy and if you
  11. Hi there all, so with the Ral Partha Chaos Wars Kickstarter in high gear, ten more days left, I've been painting some more of their figures, and I just finished this Greater troglodyte. I really like these figures as they seem so lizardlike in their poses, much more than a person with a lizard head and tail. Working on a few more with the same color scheme, but this is the first one I got done as he didn't have any armor, just his naked trog body and a sword. I also like their size scaled against other Partha figures. If I saw a troop of these rushing down upon me, I'd probably start run
  12. Hi guys, Here's another one of the Ral Partha dwarves currently on their Chaos Wars Kickstarter. I think he's referred to as a standard bearer, but with the skull and such, along with just kind of his demeanor I've always thought of him more as a Dwarven Cleric or something similar.
  13. Hi all, so two more of those grand old Ral Partha dwarves, just finished that up last night. This time I've got a hornblower and a drummer getting geared up and going either to war or a concert, not sure which. Anyhow, their Kickstarter is going on right now, so feel free to show some love for some great, classic figures!
  14. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Ma
  15. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  16. Hi again everybody! So my last little chunk of miniatures, another quartet, is a group of miniatures that will be re-released under the Chaos Wars Kickstarter guise in the near future at Ral Partha. Their next Kickstarter will highlight dwarves and undead, as well as a nice assortment of new and old figures, one of which is a new 25 mm scale Vampire Queen from Julie Guthrie which is just beautiful. So anyhoos, here they are! I added three different views of the dwarf with the mattock/pick and shield because he's kind of interesting from all angles with his pose. The other three are pretty
  17. Hi there, just finished these over the weekend, some old school Ral Partha dwarves from I can't remember what year, but somewhere between 1979 and 1982. I've always had a thing for this set, always enjoyed it as it was an old set of non-military type dwarves, truly "personalities" from a bygone age. I've had a bit of lighting problems with these ones as I seem to have a lot any more, but here are the best pictures I could take:
  18. These are some exquisite wood elves by Tom Meier, legendary founding sculptor for Ral Partha who has in the intervening decades honed his craft to an astounding degree. These are Thunderbolt Mountain #8042 Wood Elf Lord, #8043 Wood Elf Lady, #8044 Wood Elf Noble in Traveling clothes, and #8045 Wood Elf Noble Lady in Traveling clothes. A few things: The site says they are 30mm scale, but if so they are really tiny. They are based on pennies. Here they are between some Reaper figures (03566: Valloa, Elf Thief and 77131: Finaela, Pirate) for comparison: I feel these elves lo
  19. So here are two new Goblins I just painted from the end of the seventies/beginning of the eighties. Here are two I can show but putting in a link for the other one, because much as Tom Meier's Orcs like to have their dorks hang out, this little goblin has his giblets showing. I'm not too happy with the lighting on these, but it seems that I can't seem to get a better exposition. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/b/b9/Kickstarter_goblin_archer_with_helmet_1.jpg
  20. So 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!
  21. Hi all, I just keep plugging away at the classics! This time, a Tom Meier elf from Ral Partha, with sword, shield and bow. I tried to go for kind of a woodlandish color scheme, greens and yellows, so don't know how well I succeeded in that. Photo came out a tad light, but in any case, hope you all enjoy!
  22. So I keep working through all these wonderful little Partha figures, and here's my last one. Another goblin, this time an archer, sculpted by Tom Meier in the latter seventies probably. One of the other figures Ral Partha was releasing again on their Kickstarter campaign. Hopefully I was able to convey a bit of muted, dirty colors. Enjoy!
  23. So I've been working on these recently, really small fellows, with their respective wolves. I didn't want to go for grey wolves, so tried to make them brown, mangy and dirty looking. Someday later I want to paint some grey wolves and maybe white and black when I have time. They really didn't take too long to paint. Another thing I figured out afterwards is I probably sat them too high on the wolves, but once you actually put them on with Super Glue, there is unfortunately no going back. They are also a bit separated from the wolves, but on those two lunging wolves, hopefully it looks at l
  24. So finally have finish the third elf in my little Tom Meier trilogy of the All American elves. Just got this one done and based, and reasonably happy with him. Kind of took forever to choose colors and they are a bit more lively than the other two I did.
  25. So just finished this one this evening, getting the grass glued on to the base. I think this one looks better in person than it does in the photo just because of how the photo actually came out, but I've been whining a lot about my photography lately, so it's probably just me. Anyway, tried to keep kind of a cool but basic color palette, ended up imitating the Estonian flag quite a lot. This one is from the same series as the other elf I just finished, sculpted by Tom Meier, in the eighties at some point, need to look at the base to check. Anyhow, enjoy!
