11-422 Ral Partha Elves, Drow Elf Assassin and friends

He looks great, I think it's my favorite of the all four. The highlights on the black cloak, the touch of green from his coat and the golden trims bring him to life. Thumbs up!

Love the fact that you highlighted the black cape with different colors depending on the direction the fabric was being pulled - would never have occurred to me to do that, but it looks great

 

the NMM gold trim on the armor is beautiful and the two small patches of green set the whole thing off nicely

 

gorgeous!

I'm glad people liked the green pants! That was the only color where I really had doubts as if it would work or not color wise. I had my doubts too about the Count Dracula cape but ended up going with the red inner lining.

The green is soo subtle - and such a small area that it works perfect...

 

i always worry about those area on a mini - they are too small to call attention to and yet if you paint them yet another shade of brown or gray they sort of disappear - you solved that nicely - i will try to emulate next time!

Thanks Buglips! I have seen the drow painted before, another pretty nice version, but I've never seen the other three ever painted at all.

 

I still owe you a WIP on mine.  Probably won't be quite as nice as yours turned out, but it ought to be interesting to see what I do differently... especially since until these I didn't even know they were different kinds of elves!

I'm sure they'll turn out great, you always do such really nice work and it will be nice to see a different approach on the color scheme, especially since these aren't your every day run of the mill elves that everybody and their third cousin's girlfriend's pet unicorn has painted. I'm really looking forward to seeing them when you get around to them, after the Secret Project number three is complete!

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
       
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
       
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

       
      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
       
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!

      Hello Reaperholics!
       
      So I've had this one finished for a few days now, but I usually photograph one sunny days and the last few days have been kind of cloudy.
      I actually really enjoy the figure, once you get paint on her, you bring out more detail.  She's from Ral Partha's Shadowrun range. Her original set came with a dryad and another large elf subtype that I'm also working on. I have the dryad done, but I wasn't happy with her eyes so I'm going to try one more time to fix the eyes before I take final pictures.
      Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!

       
      For whatever reason, I seem to always see magic flame as green, so this mini was no exception!

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
