I have so many minis I decided I want to show most of them off. I have not been the best at storing so I am not going to touch up for now. These go back at least 20 years for some.They will mostly be Ral Parttha, Grenadier and Reaper and some I don't even know where they came from. Some will be painted pretty good and others should never see the flash of a camera so with out further ado, here we go.

 

 

P.S. comments and other pics welcomed!

Just an FYI, The Partha "Space Marines" were a licensed product for Steve Jackson Games called Space Knights. They were supposed to be for a miniatures game called Hot Lead that would have generic rules sort of like GURPS and then have setting books for it. The first book was to be Space Knights and their cyber-undead enemies. The game never materialized and SJGames won't comment on why not. So those failed Space Marines actually represent SJGames failure not Ral Partha's.

lol The guy riding into battle wearing nothing but a helmet, a shield and some underpants totally cracks me up. :lol:

 

Your paint jobs look pretty good, I particularly like the green on the draconians - is that some sort of dry pigment? Not a big fan of the actual draconian sculpts, though, they look kind of sluggish and un-actiony, if that makes any sense.

 

Huzzah!

I'm a huge Dragonlance fan and love the Draconian sculpts! Always hated that I never picked any up as a kid. The mini next to "Capt Underpants" reminds me of Frazetta's Death Dealer. Very cool. As for Capt Underpants, his tactics are sound. Ride into battle in your underwear and your enemies are so distracted by this they never even lift a sword against you.

The elf is a Warhammer Fantasy fig. It's a Wood Elf Wardancer. At the time was considered a really cool fig.
