So finally got three of the four figures from this old Ral Partha set finished, and I'm reasonably happy with the figures even if not so much with the photography.

I've still got the Northern barbarian, AKA the most boring miniature in the world to finish, but hopefully I'll get to work on him some more this weekend. Anyhow, enjoy!

I love all three figures, and the basing is simple and effective, great for these pieces!

 

I like the thief with the dagger and blue cloak the most, simply because you got some paint in some seriously tiny spaces and it looks excellent the way you did that. That, and I'm fond of the pale grey versus nice blue cloak.

I just remember how I saw that in a post how he was one of the most boring minis you'd ever painted, and somehow that stuck in my head enough to want to paint him. Now having said that out of the four miniatures in that set, he's the only one I haven't managed yet to finish so you might be on to something there.....

Yeah and really, the figure himself is pretty cool. Plus he's got the nice big flat shield that if I ever can decide I'll hopefully paint something cool on it.

      Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
       
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
       

       
      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reapervites!
      So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.
       
      With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:
       

       
      Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!
       
      So enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperlodytes!
       
      Continuing the work on some old school goodness, more Ral Partha elves from 1976 I think:
       

       
      These are all wood elves, and I've got some more coming, so I'm trying to get them painted in browns, yellows, oranges and greens.
       
      These are their two spearmen.
       
      Just like the Elven Princess, back in the pre-history of miniatures.  Super straight forward, a little awkward, amazing to compare these to Tom Meier's more recent figures!

      Good evening Reaperologists!
       
      So tonight taking a journey back to the past in the late seventies when Ral Partha was in its infancy, here is a Ral Partha Elven Princess, sculpted by Tom Meier.  A simple miniature from a simple time, it shows how far miniature sculpting has come over the years with an early Meier sculpt. Take this one an compare it to his more contemporary works, from Dark Sword Miniatures for example:
       

       
      More oldies coming soon!
