I am in the process of painting (for game play) some older figures (vintage, if you will) from yesteryear. I love painting these older figures...for some reason, I feel that they have a certain character to them that for some reason is lacking in a lot of the modern era figures/castings. Posted here are the following miniatures; PHOTOS 1-4...Ral Parth (Giant Skeleton # 02-940) circa 1985... PHOTOS 5-6...Grenadier (Death Lord # 150) circa 1986... PHOTOS 7-10...Alternate Armies (Chicol The One Legged # CM19) circa 1992... PHOTOS 11-14...Grenadier (Beholder # 104) circa 1984... I hope that you like these old figures...I have the next (4) mounted on sticks & will prime them later today.
This is another one of my older fantasy figures that I just finished. I tried to keep the look of both the figure and the base very bland, barren & bleached. I executed the skin color of the mummy (the way I would envision it)...a grayish rotting green flesh with corpse maggots in the eye & mouth (but executed in a dull dark aged feel, look and manner)...did the same with the cloth wrap...I hope that you feel I succeeded in my attempt. FIGURE...Grenadier (Mummy Lord) # 512...circa 1986...
So, I was looking around Iron Wind Metals, the place which sells old Ral Partha sculpts. I'm getting interested in the history of minis, and I was curious to see if I could find Tom Meier's original "Ral Partha, evil wizard," which was almost their first mini. I am inclined to believe Iron Wind when they say it's this, since they ought to know. He's pretty lively looking, and is lunging with a sword in front and a staff behind, not bad at all for the timeperiod (what, around 1975?). Trouble is, some people out on the internet name this fella as the original Ral Partha. He's a little less dynamic, but still cool, with a classic pointy hat (no brim), a classic robe and upraised arms, a cape draped over his left arm, and a book and some goodies on his base. I couldn't find him on Iron Wind's site, though. Is there anyone out there with a good knowledge of Ral Partha sculpts (Send up the Buglips signal!) who can say which is the actual original legendary Ral Partha, evil wizard?
