Ral Partha Dwarven Personalities

Recommended Posts

Old school minis full of character and in uncommon poses? Sign me up!

 

You've done a great job of painting these old treasures up and have done a wonderful job in making their personalities shine through.

Well done! They look great, and I think the bases fits awesomely as well; pretty and matching, but not stealing any focus from the figures themselves. ::):

I've had a bit of lighting problems with these ones as I seem to have a lot any more, but here are the best pictures I could take:

 

The only real problem I'm seeing with your lighting is that you have the light coming in from the top rather than the front. Move your lights down level with your camera and you'll get fewer problematic shadows.

The Little Folk are BEAUTIFULLY painted creations. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Surprisingly they are miniatures I don't recall seeing before.

Thanks guys! These are probably going to be some of the figures in Partha's next KickStarter. They are going to field a dwarven unit from some of their classic Meier dwarves like they did last time with orc and elves.

I would love to see Reaper bring out these sorts of dwarf "personalities" in Bones. There's a lot of civilian humans (though more of those would be welcome too), but not a lot of dwarf civilians.

 

You did some great paint jobs with these. I don't normally think of blue as a dwarf color, but they turned out really well.

They all look fantastic! What a great set of minis.

Bones 3 has some.

Wow, those are great paintjobs, especially on some tiny minis.  I know, I think I still have at least 2 of them and can't quite bring myself to paint them because they are so tiny.

Nice work on some really cool old school minis!

I agree.

      An older miniature I started years ago, but finished recently. I think it was mostly the weapons (shading) and dirty shirt missing. I would say the paint job is average, but I do like the miniature.
       
      I decided to go for a simple, but interesting base, featuring a Nolzur's bottle and Thomarillion barrel.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Hi folks, 
      I recently painted up the dark dwarves (and Margara, dwarf shaman) as some duergar. Heavily inspired by Dr. Faust's Painting Clinic duergar streams for the skin. 
      Only one picture, but may take more if there's interest. :)
