    Ral Partha Beggars by Dennis Mize

    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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. I had two copies of James van Schaik's 02863: Female Werewolf, so I decided to paint them with slight variations. I've painted them with realistic wolf coloring. That is, they are colored like actual wolves that have been pulled and distorted into humanoid shapes rather than the solid black or gray common in werewolf depictions. WIP thread here.
  7. So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white. With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out. Here is the link to the third miniature: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG And here is the photo this figure came from: And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?
  8. Hello guys and gals! So just got these two photographed this afternoon, two Children of the Night old school Samurais, from two different packages. One is a Female Samurai, out of an old Samurai Player Characters package or something similar, and the other one is a dwarf samurai from a Dwarf Player character set, beautifully and petitely sculpted by Dennis Mize. I painted them both at the same time in an attempt to use the same color schemes, hence saving a tad bit of time. I'm pretty satisfied how they came out, even though I have doubts about the female samurai's eyes. These are though very true 25 mm figures, really small, so I don't think I want to keep messing with them, as don't want to make matters worse. Here's the Female Samurai: And here is the Dwarf Samurai: Here they are together: and this is kind of fun, I actually painted the female samurai as per the records I found, in July of 2007, so literally a decade ago, and here is that comparison: In which also the eyes were a bit obnoxious to work with, but in my old paint job, they ended up being pretty large. The older version way back then would have been painted with craft paints and brushes I would have gotten from Michaels. So anyways, hope you enjoy!
  9. And here's the little Partha figure I finished. I've always enjoyed these teeny weeny figures (back when 25mm really meant something), and this is one of Dennis Mize's old Children of the Night figures, probably sculpted around 1979. As I mentioned in the post with the Stonehaven elves, I am really happy I discovered a button that brings the color back into my crappy photographs with the editing software. I've got my other little Partha Wizard I'm working on, as well as another Stonehaven elf.

    Ral Partha Oriental Dragon

    So here's a dragon I just finished, an old Children of the Night Oriental Dragon, sculpted by the great Dennis Mize. It's a three-piece model, where I pinned his head and neck to his body and the wings I super glued a long time ago, and when I tried to pull them off, I couldn't so they just ended up with super duper glue. Not a problem, my figures don't get handled too much, so hopefully he won't fall apart. Anyhow, color was my biggest problem and I don't know if in the end of everything the purple was the best choice, but I kind of like how it sticks out. I took a few pictures as well because it's such a long odd-shaped creature and lighting might have been a bit off and focus, et cetera. So anyway, hope you enjoy. This makes dragon number three that I've painted until now. I actually start out thinking it's going to be pretty painful, but really, no metal of which to speak, so just natural or unnatural colors teeth, eyes, et cetera, could be painting something far more difficult. I'm going to I think just superglue him to a wooden base, basically just so he doesn't fall over, because he is pretty top heavy.

    Ral Partha Manticore

    So here's what I've been working on the most lately, a manticore from the old Children of the Night series from Ral Partha, circa 1979. Sculpted by Dennis Mize, it' s a figure I've always really liked, but have never gotten around to painting. My biggest problem was basically just deciding what color to make his wings. I decided though in the end on Black and Red, and I took a few pictures of him because he's a figure that you need to kind of see from all around, even though he's really pretty simple. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  12. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-244.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-246A.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:DF-248A.jpg So after painting a bunch of clerics and adventurers, and stuff with armor and loads of stuff, I just wanted to paint something relatively simple, so I grabbed these three chicks. I wanted slightly different skin tones, so the one lying down started as fair skin, the one standing was tanned highlights, and the chick with the black hair has a base color of terran khaki. I also just wanted some really simple bases so just put them on bases, covered them as flatly as possible, and just painted a monochrome, very basic base for each one. As I look at their pictures amplified, I see a whole bunch of issues, but oh well. The one thing I'm not too happy about is how it seems the terran khaki chick is a bit shiny. I might have put too much sealer on her, or too much sealer/not enough water mix. Anyway, these are all a bunch of really old figures from around 1979, sculpted by Dennis Mize for the Children of the Night range.
