DSM7315 - Elf Warrior With Sword

Recommended Posts

Thanks my friends;

I thought that most of you would really like the Blue and Pink Cloak.

I am really happy with the basing (I so wanted to gild the Lilly) on this one.

It would have been so counter to what the mini wanted. That rock perch in my

mind is just rugged enough to compliment the Elf Warrior.

Thanks for your positive input !

Wanted to add another comment on the base.

The pieces of Black Walnut bark is  becoming my favorite element in my basing these days.

They can be modified to add character to the piece, or you can just paint them up and they look

so realistic!  I always put down a Nickle size piece of cork to fill in the 25mm base, then glue

on the cork.  I will be experimenting with other types of bark though.

Good work on him; I really like the color scheme you used.

Thanks Chaoswolf !

I think the smartest thing I have done so far is use my color wheel.

Now I have so many many choices for color !

Agree with everyone else, that blue and pink really look amazing. Also love the golden metallic on his shield, it's soft enough it really goes well with his cloak colors. Amazing detail as well with his face and hair and the highlights all over. He looks excellent.

Thank you for such a gracious and detailed reply Jessie !

In the three years since I started the miniature madness (LOL) I have come to appreciate the master sculptor's we have

making these miniatures and I choose my mini's from the best I see, and learn from them.  We also are blessed with the most

fantastic painters, and base makers on the web in this forum, who can provide emergency help when ever you need it.

I'm greatly indebted to this from our forum members !

This is a beautiful little piece with some unexpected color harmonies. Nicely done!

      Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure.  It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details.  Comments and critiques are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!

      Morning everybody!
      So just finished this one up and got photos edited.  I've had this figure for a while now, just finally getting time to paint it, he's Ral Partha, Wizard from Ral Partha's Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night series.  One of the first miniatures of that series, and this might be the second version.  There was another version with a shorter hanging cloak, and then one was done many years later, where you are able to easily see Tom Meier's progress over the years.  This was sculpted in the seventies, in the infancy of Ral Partha. It's a fun miniature and this is just a huge and heavy chunk of lead.
       

       
      and then kind of little close up of his tomes:

       
      and this figure oddly enough at one point came in a gold plated version as some sort of prize.  No idea why I have it, I think it came from when my brother was working at Star Realm, our local game shop.  Sadly, as I was bringing him upstairs to photograph, he did a nose dive onto my basement, concrete floor and got a piece of his gold plating knocked off around his hat:
       

       
      Beyond that he has certainly seen better days with rust/mold or whatever happens to gold plating after 40 years or so.
       
      Anyway, hope you enjoy this little look into miniatures history!

      Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme.

      Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).
