Ral Partha Dwarves with axes

Recommended Posts

I love these old school minis and the various ways you've approached them.

Was just ooh-ing and aaah-ing over those tiny, tiny, tiny gems on the barbarian's belt and baldrick.

What fun little guys! I think you did a really nice job with them. I bet the shaggy barbarian was both a pain and a pleasure to paint. He has so much character!

I saw a comment, it might have even been from you knarthex, about how it's hard to get used to painting those tiny little twenty five millimeter figures.  That's all I've been painting now for quite a long time though, so if I started painting Reaper figures it would probably feel like I was painting giants!  That was part of the fun painting some Stonehaven elves I did recently, they were so huge and easy to paint!

Likely it was, as I have been shifting back and forth from Partha to Reaper to Fractured Dimensions, and I have to re-adjust between scales....

I've got a few of Tom Meier's teeny weeny little hobbits I want to paint one of these days. The bad thing is they are really, really small, but the good thing is being so small, they shouldn't in theory take so much time and they are pretty simple figures, no extra's, such as bags, backpacks, money sacks. Just the figure and his weapon.

      Hello again Reaper Message Boardonians!
       
      So here's another piece of old school goodness, a Ral Partha Charging Barbarian, sculpted by Julie Guthrie way back in the delightful eighties.  This one was originally in one of the Partha Boxed sets, 98-015 Bezerkers, and now is sold individually at Iron Wind Metals.
       

       
      Pretty quick to paint as he was unencumbered by too much armor, clothing or general stuff.  My biggest challenge with this fellow was to figure out his hair color.  Blonde eventually won the day.  
       
      Anyhoos, please enjoy!

      Hello guys!
       
      I'm not sure if this is the place to put this and I don't think it's permissible to put links to other web sites, but just as some general information,  Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, that was a company that Tom Meier had founded quite a many years ago after leaving Ral Partha, are once again available, and being cast through a subsidiary company of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy.  They are working on releasing some classic Partha for their Chaos Wars game, other miniatures that were previously out of production, and of special note, miniatures from Thunderbolt Mountain.  At the moment on their site they have all their 32 mm elves, orcs and goblins, as well as their smaller 25mm Arthurians and a variety of other historical and fantasy miniatures.  Worth checking out, some very nice pieces out there!

      Hi guys and gals, 
       
      So just painted these two, which were pretty simple jobs being they didn't have too many things hanging off of them.  These are bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier, back in 1983.  I had always thought these were odd kind of figures, because my other concept of bugbears at the time were the Monster Manual version as well as the two Grenadier bugbears that were available at the time.  One of my future projects is to paint the Grenadier bugbears as well, plus some more recent Partha bugbears and I think I have somewhere the female bugbear by Reaper that I'd like to paint up.
       
      Anyhoos, these guys have these huge eyes that I really didn't know what to do with.  I thought of one color and not put in any pupils, but then changed my mind.  Hopefully green eyes look okay.  
       

      Anyhoos, enjoy!
