Speed painted Ral Partha gargoyle

Recommended Posts

I had mixed up a unique shade of gray paint for another figure I'm working on, and had a fair bit left over. Not wanting to waste it, I dug this out of storage and slapped it on him. I think it took me about an hour and a half to finish him up.

 

The base color is pretty close to the same color as the figure; this is intentional. I wanted to get kind of a camouflage effect with it.

 

The figure has a loincloth sculpted on, which I found kind of funny. Why  would a gargoyle need a loincloth, are they anatomically correct?

 

My mind works in strange ways sometimes...

 

Anyway, here's the pics, please let me know what you think.

Gargoyle looks fine.

 

Not sure if you could enhance the base a bit though.

Maybe a bit of green? some kind of vines?

      A thread dedicated to Work In Progress pix of those minis that have sacrificed their surface area to the never ending the quest to find ways of slapping paint on without it looking like absolute rubbish.

      I am about halfway there with an ID for this fellow.  I think it says on the bottom:
       
      Ral   84
      Partha
       
      It is hard to read though. I found this fellow lurking amongst some Bretonnians earlier this morning.

      Digging around in the mini zoo and unearthed this pack. Painted them a while back.
       
      I thought I did a pretty awesome paint job back in the day, but now I kind of want to repaint them.

      Finished!  From my childhood box of unfinished baddies. He's stamped 1979, I feel old!  :)

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...
