Any assistance with finding out this one's origins would be appreciated.

I remember having him, I am pretty sure he was from a boxed set. And I am almost positive someone posted him in the forums recently. Unfortunately I am old and senile, so I'm not much help in identifying it.

Something about him (the ? sword) is saying Ral Partha or Grenadier mid eighties...

I don't know what that is or where it came from, but I will be watching this thread to find out when someone else does know. That dude is awesome!

Thanks as well.

Now might buy him to paint myself.

Very nice! That whole box set was fantastic, it had one of the most iconic 1st/2nd edition clerics, and they all saw regular use in my games. The guy with the stylized illithid helm was the go-to polearm warrior around these parts, and Churun was a rarity, a human with a morningstar. They made iconic villains, but they were always being grabbed for pcs. Even mister fancypants with his unicorn horn and Lord Nimrod, who forgot to put pants on for the class photos.

      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!

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!

      Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death.
       
      Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
