Tabletop earth elemental oldies

Recommended Posts

I spent about 2 hours each on the first 2 elementals, they will all be used on the tabletop. I had just bought the 3 Army Painter inks, so I tested them on these. I like the results.

 

I love this one from Lance and Laser "Elementals - Earth and Water" set. Its partner is somewhere unpainted in our figure stash.

Ral Partha elemental from 11-426, very classic pose on this one.

Here is the complete set, the Fire elemental was painted by my husband around 1990, using enamel paints. Sadly, he doesnt paint anymore ::(: , but he does help me with gluing, assembly and basing :wub: .

The ugliest earth elemental ever is definitely this one by TSR, part of the "Elementals Air and Earth" twopack from 1983. I didn't think he deserved more than an hour of paint time.

Here he is with his partner Air elemental that I painted in April of 1994, this air elemental was why we bought the set:

The Ral Partha elemental is my favorite, but I actually like the TSR one as well. It seems appropriate for an elemental rock creature. Plus those eyes are too cute.

You should see if you can track down the Elemental Terror of Earth from Clan War, he would be an interesting addition to your collection here :)

ObsidianCrane, thank you for the tip, I will keep an eye out for that mini. A quick search didn't reveal any for sale in the online stores I usually frequent.

The Ral Partha is my favorite of these too. I think they are some good loking elementals and you have done a great job.

      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.

      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!

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:
