Here's one I just finished a few nights ago from the old Ral Partha All Things Dark and Dangerous series that Julie Guthrie sculpted in the early eighties. This particular set also came with an executioner swinging an axe, another prisoner on his knees just about to get his head whacked off, a basket with a head in it, and a guard with a polearm. Nice set of figures for a kind of town-type adventure.

 

I took pictures oddly enough of this figure from a bunch of angles because she is hunched so oddly it doesn't seem like one angle captures the figure. This is one that has been sitting on my desk for quite a while. One of these days I'd love to paint the executioner and guard too. I added over her shoulder a bra strap, because there was an odd flash line that I couldn't just leave there. Of course the bra strap doesn't run down her back, but oh well....

 

Next on my list - some orangey skinned goblins!

I love the old RP faces. They almost look like masks if you paint them right. You did a great job on this oldie but goodie. I never got the set but remember it well (our local game/miniature seller kept it behind the counter and turned so you could only see the side of it - it was mainly a bookstore but they had a surprising amount of D&D books & miniatures).

One of the things I like is the cobblestone on the base, I also like over all color scheme but the bra strap sticks out so much since its not on the back. I cant see the flash line you had trouble with but perhaps you could have made it look like a scar on her shoulder instead of adding a mystery bra strap.

Hi bblythe84!

The cobblestone is just made from green stuff. I usually throw grass and little rocks and what not on the bases, but this time I figured they were in town so made up some cobblestone pavement. With the flash line, which is exactly where the bra strap is, you can't see it because I covered it up literally with the exterior line of the bra strap. I kind of considered doing something on her back to continue with the strap, but didn't want to mess more than minimally with the model itself. My other dilemma was do I give a photograph of the back of not. If you would have never seen the miniature from behind, you'd never question the bra strap at all and its lack of continuancy. Just the way though that this miniature was standing, it seemed better to give photos of it from all angles.

      Good evening Reaper Hoppers and Poppers,
       
      So I just finished this miniature, who is a pretty small one. She's Gwenyvere, from Tom Meier's Arthurian line at Thunderbolt Mountain, currently being produced by Ral Partha Legacy.
       
      I just got a new iPhone, and I took the pictures with it.  I think the pictures came out really nicely, and have done an automatically good job on the exposure and all.  My concern is does the automization of the exposure make it any different than if I would have had to work a little bit with the exposure?
       

       
      To give a comparison, here is how my camera turned out:
       

       
      It's a lot darker.
       
      Anyhoos, looking for photographic opinions. 
       
      And to give you an idea of how small this figure it is, here she is in comparison to a US quarter:

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. It’s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece dragon is still available from Iron Wind Metals. I painted it exclusively with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      Here’s the list of colors I used;

      Good evening all you Reaper Spirits!
       
      So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure.  Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female.  With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays.
       

       
      Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day!
      Enjoy!

      Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors.  Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both
       
      First up:  the Panther dragon from Ral Partha.  This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint.  This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear.  This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it.  I finally just broke down and said I am going to paint this!
       


       
      Then on the flip side is the Treasure Rocky.  This little tyke has acquired his first hoard and he is insanely protective  and proud.  
      And he should be.  I was looking at the reaper store and he and most of his pals are sold out, again!  These are just a joy to paint and I 
      love painting them.  they are just so entertaining and so full of character that no matter what color you add to them or what you put them in 
      they have to shine!




       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      Hello Reaperdeepers!
       
      So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress:
       

       
      not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes.  This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole.  As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now.
       
      Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to paint, hope you enjoy her!
