Ral Partha Dwarves with spear and crossbow

Recommended Posts

They look great! I love the gem on the second one's belt.

 

I suspect if I painted them up it would be as gnomes.

They are definitely small enough to be gnomes in comparison to other brands, and not all of them are so bulky!

 

Do you prescribe to that old fashion eighties version of gnomes, with white hair and brown skin?

Nah, I don't think I even noticed gnomes in the '80s. (Well, I did have a TSR set of bards and thieves, I think it was, with a gnome thief with amazingly weird proportions, like a huge head -- looked like an old Howard Pyle illustration.)

 

I wasn't particularly orthodox with my colors back then.

One of these crazy cats?

Yup, the top one, with his wafer-thin, actually sharpish dagger. I'm impressed yours still has his.

Thanks very much ! As if Partha figures themselves aren't diminutive enough, it's always nice to grab some of their height challenged fellows. They also have some really nice, cool, petite and Tolkienesque halflings that one of these days I want to get around to painting.

I did some Ral Partha bugbears not long ago, they're tiny in comparison to current scale; but... Those I wasn't afraid to tackle as they were close to the size of a 28mm scale human. ;)

 

I haven't gone after the ral partha dwarves or elves yet. Just don't have the skill for it, yet.

 

Couldn't imagine trying to get gnomes or halflings painted up to the quality you're delivering here. That's great work!

Ooo! Very nice paintwork you've done here.

And the fact that you've done that on some classic old school minis turns the dial up to 11!

Those look cool, but I'm waiting for Wave 2 of the Lesser and Greater Troglodytes.

Which I want two weeks ago. Two weeks ago so that I could have ordered them and have them in my home, right now.

Patience is a virtue, Brother Jim, soon they will be coming. It looks like they are getting some new sculpts set up before they begin.

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!

      Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime!
       
      So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box.  This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures.  I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted. 
       
      Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon:
       
      and a few close ups of his massive skull:

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors.  Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices.  As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors.  Still haven't done much blue yet.  We'll see what dinosaur comes next.  Anyway, hope you enjoy him!

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      So I had shown off the face of this poor lass a day or two ago, due to the fact that she had a horrible accident with a bottle of red paint and I had to repair her.  She's okay though now, and here is what she looks like in her entirety:
       

       
      with a nice little size comparison photo just for fun. She's small, but not super small, but always nice to have the option to check her size out:
       

       
      and if you are at all interested in seeing her painful plastic surgery, you can check out here:
       
      A face full of blood
       
      Which will show you my temporary chagrin and dismay.  You'll see another miniature I'm posting at more or less the same time, a Ral Partha Allosaurus, that was the culprit of the red paint.
       
      Anyway, another miniature done, chiseling away at my mortal coil!
       
      Next!!!
