This is a repaint of a mini I first painted in the 80s. If I recall the bottom says 1983 Ral Partha. I do not know the figure ID or sculpter, but the folds on her cloak were gorgeous - they pained themselves.
I did the repaint as I have a character who is a teenager - and could not find an appropriate modern mini. I've never repainted something from my youth, I am generally to nostalgic. The before is the pale skinned one.
So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
and a few shots of her face up close. The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
and then here they are together:
and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
Another deep dive into the abyss...
This infernal figure was torture to pin and glue, and the storage of it is devilishly tricky because of the super bendy spear.
I really wish that minis produced with pole arms / spears would use a bit of stiff wire overmolded with the pole arm / spear casting.
I have had to adjust this spear so many times. I must have done something really evil in my last life...
I ain't even gonna try to feed this beastie lemongrass...
Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.
But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.
I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.
I've been rummaging through my mini hoard and found all kinds ancient treasures, boxed sets with the original inserts!
My stupid question is this, is anyone interested in photos of the boxed sets for identification purposes? The collection goes back to the early 80's and is from a plethora of companies.
If members are interested in miniature identification, then should there be a dedicated thread where members can post pics of their boxed sets and still carded minis? Or is there already a thread for mini identification?
