Ral Partha orange goblin archer

Recommended Posts

So I've finally finished my first orangey colored goblin, using orange brown 9201 as the base color. I've got two more in the wings waiting to finish, but those will I'm sure still take weeks and weeks. Took a back and front picture, and tried to keep colors in the spirit of the AD&D Monster Manual: "Goblins range from yellow through dull orange to brick red in skin color. Their eyes are reddish to lemon yellow. They dress in dark leather gear, and their garments tend towards dull, soiled-looking colors (brown drab, dirty greay, stained maroon)."

The only thing I really didn't go for was that soiled look, but the colors seems to kind of fit. Anyway, more goblins to come later...

He looks really good, I just hope he realizes that he only has one arrow left.

Poor goblin doesn't even have a bow string, don't know how he's ever going to get that arrow to go anywhere... One is probably more than enough.

Goblins are like early war Soviets. One gets the bow, the next gets arrows. When the first goblin falls, the second takes his bow.

 

Tactics and strategy aren't our strong points. But numbers? Numbers we got.

That's because you guys breed like rabbits. Or is it that rabbits breed like goblins? Hmm..

Hmm...I think I have that, was it in the monsters box?

 

 

Nope. Visually it's very similar to the TSR gobbers, hails from the same era. But in my 95 catalog it's listed as part of 02-053 (goblin archers - 6), and that's why IWM still makes them. Though, if I recall, I think they're sold as 12-pack army builders now.

      So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released.  They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family.  Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet.  I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
       

       
      These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small  25mm sized figures.  More to come later as I finish them!
       
      Enjoy!

      Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing.  I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months.  For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly.  I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off.  Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished.  I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
       
      He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.  Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
       

       
      Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in. 
       
      So anyhow, hope you enjoy!

      These guys are really tiny, from back in the days when the word "miniature" really meant something.  They are based on 0.5" washers.

      I wanted to create something to enter in the Paint It Pink competition this year, but I only had about a day and a half before ReaperCon. I knew that this wasn't going to win any awards, but it was important to me that I do something. I saw these goblins with their oversized flag and just went for it. The base is one of Secret Weapon's doric columns.

      Hello everybody! Hope a lot of you are having a great time at ReaperCon, one of these days hope to go!
       
      So here is one of the figures I finished last night, a Ral Partha female fighter, sculpted by Bob Charette.   With this figure, it took me forever to figure out what color I wanted her clothing to be, so after a long and painful struggle just gave up and made them white. Don't know if that's ever happened to anybody else?
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!
