  1. Hello again! so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979. Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below. With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing. So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress. The blue blouse I think turned out better, more visually transparent. She's a tad out of focus with this extreme close up, but hopefully this will inspire you to see the rest of her in the links. So here's Instagram, where you can see her from all angles: https://www.instagram.com/p/CAtNLTBHuZK/ or just where I stuck her main photo in the Lost Mini Wiki: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/4/4e/DF-245_A.JPG So anyhow, that's the last of the naked miniatures I have in mind for the near future, I promise the rest will have a bit more clothing on, or will be monsters that just don't need clothing!
  2. Hello gents and gentesses! So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues. This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979. I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times. Here is here face: and here is a link to see the rest of her in Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CAqKGQXnPgh/ or if you don't have access to Instagram, another shot of her from the Lost Mini Wiki: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/9/9d/DF-247_A.JPG which only gives a single angle of her front. In any case, a nice and simple figure to to, as it's just a girl and her skin basically. Here is the whole set, unpainted, so unedited: Crazy the things we were allowed to buy in the eighties as teenagers!
  3. And here is the second one I finished this morning, another Ral Partha figure sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the eighties. This one looks to be pretty clearly based on the Evil Queen of Disney fame. I didn't want to give her exactly the same colors, so threw in some orange into the mix. I think this is another Ral Partha Import resculpt. I added a close up photo, but realized afterwards there is a little fuzz or lint or something on the cloak, sorry about that. Adding it in anyway, sa I'm too lazy to retake the photos.
  4. Hello guys and gals! Here is one of the minis I just finished this morning, a Ral Partha Kindly Old Wizard, I think sculpted by Dennis Mize. Sadly I forgot about the "old" part in the Kingly Old Wizard, and made his beard much more brown than a really old wizard would have I'm thinking. This is one of the Ral Partha Imports that Dennis Mize sculpted based on some old Citadel miniatures. So anyhoos, here he is, feigning friendliness!
  5. Hello All, another miniature finished today, with my employer, we got a reduction in pay, but at least fairly are expected to work less hours as well, so I've got Wednesdays off, and have spent the day on and off painting amongst other things. Here is the last one I've finished an Aristocratic Lady, sculpted by Dennis Mize I believe as part of their Ral Partha Imports line that would have been taking the place of some other older original Citadel model of the same name. My original thought was pale skin and dark clothing but I ended up with just the opposite. I think she turned out okay. One of these days I might do an alternative color scheme of her. Anyhoos, here she is, hope. you like: and a close up shot of her face, not perfect, but still decent I guess: I was kind of thinking peacocky colors, but I'm ending up just green bird as I didn't do any of those blue and orange colored swirls anywhere. In any case, enjoy!
  6. Hi guys, so I did a Ral Partha Houri a couple weeks back, where she had darker skin and beige/white garments. The original thought was make them semi transparent, which the first time out didn't work too well. I've got a few copies of this figures, so I gave it another go. Here's a link to the first one: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90984-ral-partha-houri-with-dagger-sculpted-by-dennis-mize/ and here is my second version, which was done as a blonde and tried to figure out a little bit better the transparent clothing. The front picture is linked here: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-690_Blondinka_A.JPG because she's kind of exposed, but not fully. Here is the Instagram link that shows all the photos, if you have access to Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/B_OeNsuHl_s/ and finally, some pictures that aren't showing the naughty parts: Which are actually two photos. A bit awkward, but if interested you can go to the Instagram spot and/or the other link. Might end up doing another version as well, now that I'm starting to get the transparent clothing figured out. I have one more of these models and a few other minis I could use this technique with I think.
  7. Hello all! So here is another Ral Partha piece I just finished. I actually like this miniature a lot, even though the proportions are a little weird. The figure itself is a Houri, which I didn't know before I looked it up, refers to one of the virgins an adherent to Islam would receive after death. With her, I tried to do some kind of sheer or transparent fabric, but it really didn't work out like I wanted it to. One day I'll hunt down a tutorial on how that's supposed to work. I'm also not 100% satisfied with one of her eyes, but it's such a small field, short of doing it all completely over, it would be a bit rough to patch up, so at the moment I may just leave her as she is. I actually want to eventually do this gal in a few different skin tones. This version used Terrain Khaki as the base color, but I'd also like to do a tan version as well as a fair skin version. One of these days perhaps, but now it's on to the next miniature. Another interesting part about this mini is she was a "resculpt" of an older Citadel piece also of the same name. What I'd really like to do one day is get a hold of the original Citadel mini and paint her up as well. But in the meantime, here she is:
  8. So as the year comes to a close, this is my last miniature of 2019. I thought my figure from a few days ago would be the last but I got lucky enough to have time to squeeze one more in! This one is a Dennis Mize figure from who knows what year, but pretty old, and she was sitting on my desk for months already primed and ready to go. Somehow the inspiration took me and I started working on her a few days ago, and in delightful old class Partha form, her lack of additional dingly dangly items on her person made her a pretty quick paint job, just herself, her armor, shield, weapon and a belt. So got her done a few nights ago, got the base done last night. With this gal, one of my issues (as always )was what I was going to put on her shield, because I never know what to do, but in a moment of inspiration it occurred to me that she could use an enchanted shield to make up for her limited visibility due to her poked out eyeball that would have been under that patch. So I made the the opposite eye open on her shield and voila, I've solved her limited vision issue! So my total for 2019 was 60 miniatures, the majority Partha, but a smattering of Reaper as well. Did two Thunderbolt Mountain minis as well. Anyhoos, Happy 2020 everybody and we'll certainly speak next year with all next year with new miniatures to share! Mark
  9. So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong! So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair. I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won. I really like how the photos came out. I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind. So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:
  10. And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night". And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue. Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt. Let me know what you think of the colors!
  11. Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime! So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box. This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures. I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted. Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon: and a few close ups of his massive skull: I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors. Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices. As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors. Still haven't done much blue yet. We'll see what dinosaur comes next. Anyway, hope you enjoy him!
  12. Hello all, just finished this one up, a Ral Partha Children of the Night Megalosaurus. I told myself I was going to stay away from greens and grey, which is of course what this one ended up being. I threw some pink highlights into his mouth and throat, which started making me think a bit about the Joker. This guys is a dinosaur so he's a pretty hefty piece of metal. I should probably photograph some day a normal sized person to give a comparison. He's on an oval base, no idea how big it's supposed to be. Anyway, hope you like!
  13. Hi guys and gals, two more figures from classic Rat Partha, these two are currently called "Beggars" but used to be part of a Children of the Night set that came with a seated old holy voodoo gentleman I painted recently. Here's the original set: and here are the two beggars: and here is the front of the female beggar, linked for an exposed female mammal part dangling about: Female Beggar, beware mammal parts!! I didn't originally mean to give the male beggar a black eye, but his eye was actually just a small little slit, and I was going to leave it as a dark link. So I did the line, then did the black eye, but after that, because I just couldn't resist, I tried to put white over the slit, and even though the white slit kind of took over and made it big enough for an eyeball to go there too, I think it came out okay. The two figures were pretty simple and they are rather small, being some nice old Dennis Mize 25mm. If I remember to, I'll grab the quarter comparison shot one of these days. and just in case you want to see the whole set, I'm sticking the little old drummer voodoo priest here as well: to show the complete set! So hope you enjoy, thanks for having a look!
  14. Hi guys, two more figures that I just finished, really simple paint jobs with limited color palettes and being animals and all. They are both sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the day and came from his Children of the Night series. I did the Hunting Cat in pure black with some highlights and for the Therapsid, I kind of wanted him pale, and unhealthy looking. He reminds me a little bit of a not-so naked mole rat: Pretty simple and straight-forward figures, didn't take too long to paint. The hunting cat really only took a few hours, and the Therapsid a little bit more because he was three colors. Anyway, hope you enjoy these little specimens of wildlife!
  15. And another figure from my pretty productive weekend, a were-rat, I think also sculpted by Dennis Mize, though not too sure, this might have been some of the Citadel Import figures that he redesigned. Anyhow, once again a very simple figure, a naked were-rat running around with a sword, pretty simple and straight forward! I always seem to end up painting rats grey, maybe in the future, I'll go brown or white....
  16. Hello guys and gals, so I've been wanting to paint some dinosaurs for a while, so here is my first official one, a ceratosaurus, sculpted by Dennis Mize in the early eighties for his Ral Partha range Children of the Night. As always, the hardest part was to come up with a color scheme as I keep thinking "dinosaurs - green or grey" and don't really want to fall in to that trap at all. I've got more of them so I want to try different color schemes and patterns, maybe some stripes and spots and what not. This is one of the bigger ones I have. He's on a oval base probably for 50mm figures I'm guessing? Can't actually remember where I found the base, but glad I had it sitting around. As I look at Mize's figures from this period and with all his dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, I wish he would have made some cavemen as well. He did some primitive-looking figures later with his Beastmasters, but I would have really liked just some shaggy-haired guys and gals to accompany all these beasts.
  17. Hi all! So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera. This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize. This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series. I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful. The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use. Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar. And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk: So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon! Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate! Mark
  18. Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Gringos, and to the rest of the world, happy Thursday!! So just finished these two figures this morning, two old school Dennis Mize Children of the Night Harpies. I've had these sitting around at least since they came out in the early eighties and finally got up the gumption to actually paint them. I think the biggest problem with these was trying to figure out what color to paint them. I had painted one of these way back in the eighties, but never actually painted her wings, so just have a naked bird chick rising up in to the air kind of oddly, and at that time I made her green. This time though I got some colors figured out, and kind of got inspired by a blue jay and a cardinal, so at least the initial inspiration was there The Blue Harpy The Red Harpy Both Harpies together So anyhoos, another part of this set that made it a little easier was no clothing or metal or dingly danglies and one of the figures doesn't even have any visible eyes. So in the ultimate scheme of things some pretty easy figures to paint! Enjoy! For the fourth of July I give you red and blue, but didn't paint anything white, so sorry!
  19. Hello all, another figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha figure, which I think might have been part of their redesigned Partha Imports back in the day. And of course, she's dressed extremely sensibly, as if she's screaming "you will NOT stab me in the nipple!". She was fun to do however, nice big face and a simple piece to paint. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  20. And here's another one I did at the same time as my little witch. Also a really small figure, seated, and 25mm, sculpted too in 1979, part of Deniss Mize's series "Children of the Night". This little gentleman was originally in set called the "Voodoo Man Set", where he was a little voodoo witch doctor I think, and he had two voodoo zombies with him. The biggest problem with this guy was his eyes. He is so incredibly small that after I painted the whites of his eyes, I couldn't get an actual dot in there, so I ended up painting the whole eyeball blue. Not exactly what I wanted, but the eyes were also sculpted in such a way that they were very defined and you really couldn't get away with painting over them and still have them look okay. So not too sure about how that came out but otherwise, not too disappointed. I didn't really do much with the base, just glued him on, added some green stuff and painted over it. And to give you guys an idea about this fellow's size (or lack thereof) a comparison shot with a quarter: With him and his little buddy the witch. They got to know each other pretty well whilst sitting on my desk for a week.
  21. And good evening again! And quite in contrast to the other figure I just posted, this little thief is quite a bit more sensibly attired, covering herself up relatively decently I'd say. I think this is also sculpted by Dennis Mize, but not 100%. Once again, as per usual, my hardest decision is always colors, so used Terran khaki for her main skin color and kept some cool colors with her wardrobe mostly. The only thing that didn't really work out like I wanted was that on her boots she had laces going up them, but I just kind of highlighted them a little and didn't do anything with them, because her left leg is bent down so much, even though they were sculpted there I couldn't really reach them very well. Other than that though pretty happy with how she came out. She has sort of an odd vest that is open in the front and then ties closed in the back, but at the end of the day that's how she was sculpted, so just obeyed the sculptor! Once again, may she not be painful upon your eyeballs!
  22. So here is a small little mini that was sculpted way back in 1979, making the sculpt already 40 year old. It was sculpted by Dennis Size in the old Partha Days and belonged to a game that Partha had produced called the Witch's Cauldron, which pitted adventurers against monsters. I've never actually played the game some miniatures that I've painted actually came from this game. So here is the witch, to whom the cauldron belonged. She is a small little figure and crouched down to make her even smaller. The white hair has actually got some shades and washes in it, but you can't always see them in these photos. Anyhow, enjoy: I'm reasonably pleased with her. I was kind of going for Drow but not Drow. I really like the "Dark Elf" triad for the Drow, but I've seen artwork that shows Drow skin almost more like dark, natural tones, so wanted to give a try for that, plus I'm also painting two other figures with the same skin tones that just flat out have a more African vibe.
  23. Finished this one up yesterday, got photos this morning: and these are old school Partha minis, so for a size comparison, these photos: So with this one, I wanted to avoid the blahness of a shield with nothing on it, so I tried a design which apparently couldn’t figure out if it should be a dragon or maybe a bull. Not so satisfied with it but it’s better than my hooded fighter from a recent post, where I just put o a geometrical pattern and called it a day. Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
  24. So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it. So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!
  25. Good evening everybody, so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages. I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties. Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!
