Identify: Unknown Female Druid or Aristocrat :: Resolved

Recommended Posts

Need help identifying this young lady. I painted her as a druid for a player in one of my groups.

 

Any assistance finding the manufacturer would be greatly appreciated.

I was going to say she looked kind of Ral Partha-y. a dark elf, huh?

 

...

 

So would this be one of the Ral Partha D&D minis Wizards of the Coast destroyed the mold for?

Thanks 72moonglum.

 

A speedy result. I painted her a while ago and never thought to check the Menzo box.

 

Pingo and ShadowRaven, she didn't look like much of a dark elf to me either. Hence her appearance.

I'll stick to elf maiden. LOL She seems out of place as a dark elf.

I may have multiples of that mini. I have two partial Menzo sets, maybe even three, but still not enough to build a complete one.

 

What are you missing? ... My ex-wife bought the set and I am not a huge fan of Forgotten Realms dark elves. I may be willing to part with pieces ... and not many are painted. Especially the ranger do-gooder ... what's his name? It's right there ... tip of the tongue ... D something. Has a large black cat. He's an anti-hero right?

 

Send me a list and we can talk trade or something.

Drizzt (and his million clones of Drizt, Drizzit, Drizzzt, Dirizt etc) is a drow anti-hero, which means he is a hero for the good side. I have not read the books, so I don't know exactly why he is so popular.

My favorite clone is Zz'dtri, from the webcomic "Order of the Stick."

 

As for his popularity, I think it has to do with angst and rebellious bad-boy cool. Or something.

Yes, I really am familiar with the character. It's the level of godhood he appears to have among the fanboys and fangirls that drives me nuts. And the over-popularity of the concept and the race in general. It also doesn't help that I don't like the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

My son loves OotS. We have the boardgame. I find it amusing and slightly annoying that I tend to draw the clone Zz'dtri most times we play. The OotS descriptions are just as funny as the comic.

 

 

And killing 1000 trolls off-scene by yourself because lack of dramatic peril is awesome. Tra la la la la.

 

 

Damn. Now I'm not sure I want to complete that set.

 

But ... it would "complete" a set. Collectors collect complete sets. Not pieces. ^_^

 

No biggie. Just thought I would offer.

 

In character: "The drow have stuck their noses into Frost Giant business one to many times. They must all perish."

 

Heh ... might be that the dark elves will become the dark half-elves and quarter elves. Perhaps just a leg or three.

 

They will make excellent base fodder. Muahahahahaha.

 

Or I could trades them away to gobbos. *shrug*

I seem to only have the four female drow. I had multiples of them, but only them. There's a part of me that says "Old TSR Partha - must complete!" but also a part of me that's going "ewww... Drizzle and the other forgettables".

      I don't really like this sculpt, they've cut corners too much for my taste, but as I painted Drizzt it grew on me. Has some kind of charm and I like it now  hope you will too!

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
       
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
       
      C&C very welcome.
       
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

      Here's an odd one.  Anyone know of a miniature of someone over-bundled up against the cold?  I have this vision of an elf who has made his home in a frigid land despite being unaccustomed to the weather.  Just wondering if there's a playful model like that out there of a character wearing too many cloaks and scarves.
       
      It's not-essential but I would love the opportunity to bring this weird character to life.
      ----
      As an addendum, if you have suggestions for models that could be easily converted I'm also interested.  Or resources for sculpting scarves and the like.

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!
