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!
So just finished this one up and got photos edited. I've had this figure for a while now, just finally getting time to paint it, he's Ral Partha, Wizard from Ral Partha's Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night series. One of the first miniatures of that series, and this might be the second version. There was another version with a shorter hanging cloak, and then one was done many years later, where you are able to easily see Tom Meier's progress over the years. This was sculpted in the seventies, in the infancy of Ral Partha. It's a fun miniature and this is just a huge and heavy chunk of lead.
and then kind of little close up of his tomes:
and this figure oddly enough at one point came in a gold plated version as some sort of prize. No idea why I have it, I think it came from when my brother was working at Star Realm, our local game shop. Sadly, as I was bringing him upstairs to photograph, he did a nose dive onto my basement, concrete floor and got a piece of his gold plating knocked off around his hat:
Beyond that he has certainly seen better days with rust/mold or whatever happens to gold plating after 40 years or so.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this little look into miniatures history!
