Old Skool Lead from a Friend

Recommended Posts

So the Pathfinder game was played last Saturday, and a friend from collage that still plays with us brought up a box of old lead that he was going to put on evil bay, and asked me if I wanted any of them.....

 

(Anyone care to guess my answer?)

 

So I refrained from taking the whole box and grabbed the following:

Ral Partha:

These critters are called 'Hexers' or something like that I believe

R.Charrette, 1989 on the base

 

These guys reminded me of Anhurians

1992 on base

 

These guys had odd helmets that I kinda liked...

This guy just struck my fancy for some reason:

Ral Partha 84 on the base...

 

As soon as I saw this guy, I thought of the Dark Enabler, The Like Bomber, & CW....

(So when I paint this guy, which one do I skin for him???? :devil: )

His boots are claws, His visor reminds me of a Traveller character I had back in High School that a different friend drew a pic of for me, and his shield is neat!

They are all going to go for a swim in paint stripper, as soon as I can find some gel type....

 

Aint friends wonderful?

Great haul!

 

I like the Ral Partha Chaos Fighters..

The Horse thingies made me think of Sleipnir, but these are Hexers you say?

Never heard of them but they look cool!

 

The Grenadier Knight  is wearing Dragon Armor, Did I sent you the Grenadier Catalogue PDFÅ›?

Because I know I have some where he is shown painted, might be of use for reference?

If not  ..ask and Ye shall receive..

 

As for the Barbarian in Wolf Skin... That's  Ub3r, and we are friends, so it isn't my skin. My guess is CW stole Ub3r's Skull Mugs once too many and this is the result.. :upside:

Just wondering why this was moved here, as the other threads of this type were in Presentation.....

 

And no Starwolf, no pdfs (yet)

 

Thanks!

The horses are hekatrixes (spelling may be off); I used to have a bunch of 'em a while ago until I sold them off.

 

I've still got some of those old chaos warriors hanging around though.

I love it when this sort of thing happens. A buddy of mine (the guy who introduced me to D&D when we were just 11 years old), gave me a box of ancient lead (mostly Grenadier, with some RP thrown in) last year. It was crazy because I already had most of his old collection from when he left it with me about fifteen or twenty years ago. Turns out he had more in his mom's attic.

 

I hear some of it actually once belonged to his older brother. I refuse to feel guilty about that, because that's the same older brother DM who killed my beloved first-character-ever, Testor the Fighter, with a sneak attack save-or-die spider bite in my very first encounter in my very first game ever.

 

Paybacks and all that.

Nice! If you find that you need more, the chaos warriors and hexatrixes are still in production from Ironwind. I was commanding a unit of the chaos axemen in a game this morning, as it happens. ::):

      I am taking am attempt at Ral Partha's Ghost dragon.  The box art does him in white but I wanted something different. I wanted to play with color making him red from the top down, blue from the bottom up but making the transition acceptably smooth when liked at from the side..Ill say up front this is not the easiest dragon to work with.  Have I gone wrong?  I would like some opinions on the roughed out paint scheme as well as some suggestions for the eye and mouth color.  Originally I was considering him for a playful ghost but more and more he is looking like more nightmare than daydream 
       
      And sorry for the pictures, I just snapped them off my (rather messy) paint station
       
      From the side:

      This piece has been sitting in my mini drawer for quite some time.  I'm not sure where it came from or why it showed up but it appeared and desired paint so it got some.  I am thinking of making it the grand mentor for the legion of Justice and Caeke to counter the dread influence of Fatimus but we will see.  In the mean time, I dont know too much about this mini other than it was produced by Ral Partha in 1991 for TSR Its pretty and it was fun to paint, but my google fu is not strong enough to find the name of the character and the base has no further information.
       
      So without further Ado, my dragon Elder

      A flashback from the 90s. A selection of Ral Partha gargantuan orcz pulled out of the Iron Winds random con bins. A couple of them got some minor conversions/addons from Reaper models and weapon packs due to some missing parts. Decided to keep the bases simple. I imagined them trudging across muddy trampled land.

      Recently @Kangaroorex sent me a Ki'rinn for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project along with a Asian Dragon, a Chibi Dragon and some candy.
      I already had one of these Ki'Rinn and decided to paint them in two different versions, brother/sister? Evil/Good? You decide.
       
      WIP Here:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/&
       
      Anyway, as with the Asian Dragon I wanted to show their unnatural appearance by combining normal paint with metallic highlights.
      So here they are.
       
      Hope you like them.

      So I finished this one two nights ago, didn't get around to taking his photo yesterday because I got home too late last night and it was just too dark to take advantage of natural light.
       
      Here is another Julie Guthrie Ral Partha classic from the eighties a hooded fighter/warrior/ranger with sword and shield.  Being he was originally listed in the eighties as a ranger:

       
      I wanted to give greens and browns, but nowadays being he is just being called a hooded fighter, I still wanted to keep some natural colors but ended up giving him some non-rangery colors on his shield:
       

       
      Also his inner cloak I used the same colors and painted at the same time as the female archer I just finished (her green gloves).  
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy another classic figure from the past!  Julie Guthrie was great back then and she's even greater now!
