I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored. These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again. I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.
These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal. They even had packaging that read "now lead free".
What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable. However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them. These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.
Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?
Hi everyone. Got a couple more demons for you today. This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D. These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.
More Below the Spoiler:
Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.
If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.
Also, how do you paint insect wings? They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?
Yeah, another base. Shocker, I know. It's one I've been thinking about for years, basically, since I bought the beads that are in it.
So, the premise:
I use the air-dry clay hexes from the previous project as well as these beads I bought at Walmart so long ago. The Bugle Beads are hex-shaped and iridescent. The color on the tube is labeled as "black iris."
I build a flat of the hexes and use the beads upright on a portion of the base to represent an unusual terrain. I use a pill bottle shell along one edge to build the terrain upward on that edge more easily. I'll peel that off later.
So here's the bottom layer of the piece.
The front layer is as high as it will go. The next layer will go to the top of the beads and also be flat. The last layer will be more like a hill on the other side of the beads.
Now if this was for a mech it would look like pilings holding back the earth. I will use more of them here than just along the fronts.
Stay tuned. Enjoy. Please, stay safe.
Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple, classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.
