Slug Eat Your Face (Thunderbolt Mountain)

Recommended Posts

ewww! :poke: Does the miniature have that stippled texture on the back? It really comes though as slug skin in that blue/purple area. Beautiful! I like the freehand!

I've known about "Slug Eat Your Face" and the original "Ballerina Fairy Princess on Flying Pink Pony Unicorn with Rainbow Laser" for a while, but the "Giant Saber-Toothed Flying Mole with Gills" and the unit of "Ballerina Fairy Princess Infantry" (all officers, of course) were new to me.

 

^_^

 

I've liked Tom Meier's work since he was sculpting for Ral Partha (I have many of his Landsknechts, for instance), but his Thunderbolt Mountain stuff is exceptional. And his work for his kids is ... remarkable. :upside:

I'm thinking we need someone to make up some Warlord unit stats for these. I would absolutely field an army of these against anyone, and CRUSH THEIR FACE with glittery sparkles. True story.

This is one mini that really does not need a matte finish, ever. Only suggestion I would make is photograph him next to a salt shaker for added effect. :upside:

I quite like the gloss, and I agree: The body really does a good job of capturing the look / texture of a slug.

I had been holding onto my Tom Meier slug for many years, and was glad when last Iron Painter I could find a use for it. Everyone should have one! :-)

It suddenly occurs to me - do slugs normally have teeth? :bday:

No, and they don't have uvulas or eyeballs either. I regard this as a Muppet slug.

      And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
       
      So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
       

       
      His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
       
      My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Winter Salutations to you cold weather Reaper ptarmigans!
       
      So I'd mentioned in a previous post how Ral Partha Legacy, a sister company of Iron Wind Metals, has recently opened up and one of their ranges they have acquired is Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.  So here is one of them a Wood Elf Lady:
       

       
      I really love these miniatures. I'm used to painting Ral Partha stuff, but these are quite a bit different, as the detail is so fine and detailed.  The eyes and some of the jewelry is so small and hard to paint.   Even though they are 30 mm, they are quite realistically proportioned so lots of the details aren't exaggerated.
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy, and if you've got a few moments check out the Ral Partha Legacy page!

      Hello guys!
       
      I'm not sure if this is the place to put this and I don't think it's permissible to put links to other web sites, but just as some general information,  Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, that was a company that Tom Meier had founded quite a many years ago after leaving Ral Partha, are once again available, and being cast through a subsidiary company of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy.  They are working on releasing some classic Partha for their Chaos Wars game, other miniatures that were previously out of production, and of special note, miniatures from Thunderbolt Mountain.  At the moment on their site they have all their 32 mm elves, orcs and goblins, as well as their smaller 25mm Arthurians and a variety of other historical and fantasy miniatures.  Worth checking out, some very nice pieces out there!
