Hello to all the forumites of this fine page! So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base. I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one: and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf: Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf: Water Elemental Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman! So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days. For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors? In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest. The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently. Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about. I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future. And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site. Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)! Mark aka 72Moonglum
