Wow, RAFM has some ... characterful sculpts. These are awfully fun-looking. And something of an intriguing window into the Google hangout. Thanks for sharing!

RAFM, proud Canadian caster and distributor of my youth. It's only recently that I realized they also distribute Reaper products.

 

I have a pair of ogre figures who for love of me I can't remember who made them, but I'm sure it was RAFM, but I can't find any source that shows them. One looked like an armored football player with a spiked ball and chain, the other looked like an ogre caster in scale mail only to realize later on that it was an archer and I didn't have the bow.

 

Won't be home for a few days, so no pics.

These are all great fun and nice paints Master Buglips! I know RAFM is still out there and they have a moderate amount of fantasy figures. Did they actually have a lot more figures over the years? I'm really not too familiar with the brand. I think I only have the male and female druids.

Do you happen to know who the sculptor is? I think I can see some affinity between the faces of the female druid and the female cleric and the RAFM female ranger I painted up recently.

Bob Murch for everything except the cyclops. Cyclops was Stephen Koo.

I know there have been some non-fantasy, maybe some new Cthulhu, but the fantasy line has pretty much been stuck in 1994.  I guess because they're the Canadian distributor for Reaper, who as we all know already produce a robust fantasy selection.

 

Stephen Koo minis aren't in the online listing but they'll cast them if you email with order number.  The last print catalog was 1994 as far as I know and is easy to find in pdf - the Koo minis and codes are in there.  More Koo minis will be posted, I special ordered the whole Women of the 9th Meridian line some time back.

 

I also have the female ranger Pingo recently finished.

Love them, that Undead Magician with Skeletal Rabbit is a blast.

 

Rafm has some awesome sculpts.

I still want to get my hands on that Undead Trolls they have.

 

Rafm I still have the Necrodrake in his box waiting to get painted, together with Kaladrax and Nethyrmaul that is 3 Undead big dragons I need to paint.

Not to mention my Grenadier Undead Mammoth, Elephant and Rhino...

 

Hmmm...Thx for stirring that up...

      10 types and crews as add-ons
       
      The award winning Rafm Miniatures Siege Equipment was first created in the 1980's. These miniatures have been in production for years but we need your help to retool them, and produce new moulds to continue selling the figures. With your help we can update these items for the modern era.
      This Kickstarter offers eleven items including Bombards, Ballista and Catapults. These items were originally sculpted in 25mm scale but fit nicely with 28mm figures. See the Kickstarter video for images of the pieces in scale to 28mm Peasant Siege Crew sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.
      The All-In pledge will give you ten pieces of Siege Equipment for use in any miniature tabletop game. More items can be added to these offerings as we reach greater amounts and open stretch goals. The line has up to 40 different pieces that we can get retooled in this program. Join us and lets see how many of these items we can get retooled.
      All figures are produced in unpainted scaled white metal. Available for use in multiple scales.
      All figures ship in unpainted white metal. The Peasant Seige Crew is 28mm scale and is sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.

      I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too!
       
      My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row.
       
      All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!

      Hey all! I've been working hard on my husband's surprise birthday present. It was going to be a surprise reveal at ReaperCon, but finances/vacation time mean that it's just me going now. But since I told him about it, that means I get to make a WIP thread! Yay!

      I grabbed these really cool "Deep Ones Mutant Fishmen" by RAFM out of the Box of Goodwill a couple years ago. He accidentally saw them so I've had to wait until I was sure he forgot about them, haha. Oops.
       
      When we were teens and couldn't meet up, we spent most nights online together. A lot of that time was spent in WoW. With Classic coming out, I thought it would be the perfect time to get these little guys done! He's always loved murlocs and even built entire decks around them in Hearthstone, so I decided to make them based off of cards I've seen him use the most.
       
      Top: Original minis.
      Bottom: Prepped and repositioned for modding. Arms, fingers, toes, and bases were chopped off. The middle one needed a lot of bending to look natural. One lost his head. They all lost their noses....

       
      I don't have WIP photos because this was a SECRET.
      They all got little spines drilled and sculpted on, buttcapes, little details like crab and tentacle armor. The reading one got a little "nightlight." I painted the Hearthstone cards before sculpting the head so I could actually reach the book. 

      (This is a HUGE photo if you right click -> open link in new tab. I couldn't make it wider in the thread.)
       
      I did keep a photo of the angler underpinned head because he looked so happy!! What a cutie! This might be my avatar someday.

       
      The warleader's sword was made with Apoxie Sculpt for the base and Green Stuff details. I accidentally made it too smooth(?!) because I really struggled to get any GS to stick. That meant I couldn't do the multiple layers I wanted.

       
      I also made some terrain on a whim. The little huts are pretty iconic to him so I knew he'd immediately find it in the display area! I drew out the sizes I wanted, cut some baked sticks to size, and doused everything in appropriate amounts of superglue and hotglue. The hut top was made with a ball of foil with Apoxie Sculpt. Once it was mostly cured, I removed the ball and smoothed the inside and outside with more clay. Once it's painted, I'll use long grass to mimic the hay. I still need to add little jars, skulls, lanterns, treasure chest, etc.

       
      Lastly - the cards themselves!
      These card images were pulled from the Hearthstone Wiki and I added some short, awful descriptions.
      Top left: Underbelly Angler. Play a murloc, you get another murloc. He loves this one. This is Booklight!
      Top right: Toxfin. He can destroy most cards in a single hit. He's the one with the stinky fish.
      Bottom left: Warleader. Your other murlocs have bonus attack. Big sword guy!
      Bottom right: Soul of the Murloc. When your murlocs die, they come back with 1 health, 1 attack. He giggles so much when he plays this. It doesn't look unique, but I think I'll use the ghostly scheme on the Warleader. I don't know if I can do that yet!

       
      Tomorrow I'll be making the little bits and bobs. Hopefully I can arrange all the terrain on Thursday, prime Friday, and be painting next week!

      In "Call of Cthulhu," you would be quite the sillybilly to go poking into dark mysteries without a party member versed in first aid or the medical sciences. Fortunately, Misk U. has a partnership arrangement with St. Mary's Teaching Hospital in Arkham! 

      50257,  Dr. Thomas Welby, is the perfect sculpt for a good doctor. He specializes in nervous ailments. Look at that reassuring smile and Clipboard of Authority! 


      He is assisted by 50258, Nurse Anne Foster. Exceptionally capable and possessed of a knowledge of pharmacology that goes above and beyond. She's seen some tough cases.

       

      And, of course, we need a surgeon! I had an extra 59029, Baron Simone LeCroix, and since I'd used Jack the Ripper as a circus knife thrower ( https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85248-circus-knife-thrower-and-assistant-50012-and-50125 ) I had a razor and a doctor's bag left over from his sprue. So the good Baron got a change of occupation after some wire-cutter-and-pliers surgery of his own. Barber, surgeon, veterinarian,  what-have-you, he's skilled with a sharp blade. 


       

      Speaking of nervous cases, Miskatonic  is rough on the sanity. The old Call of Cthulhu Occupation 3-packs from RAFM usually come with a character doing just fine, a character encountering something unsettling, and a character on the edge of madness or deadness or both. This sculpt was the last of the three for the Professor 3-pack. Hidden for triggers: suicidal ideation.

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy
