A Very Small Old Ral Partha Dwarf Seer-Mage (Ral Partha 01-070b)

Recommended Posts

This is a teeny-tiny old Ral Partha dwarf. I don't know the SKU. Ratmaster2000 identified him as 01-070b, Dwarf Seer w/ Crystal Ball. I suspect he was sculpted by Tom Meier, given the delicacy and the anatomical accuracy.

 

He is the first dwarf I have finished from the WIP thread Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs: 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess and a bunch of dwarfs as Exalted Jadeborn.

 

As ever, comments and critiques are welcome.

Ooh I know this mini, I have one just like it sitting on my shelf somewhere:) I should upload him for comparison. Look good, especially given his size:)

Beautiful job! You can get one again on the Ral Partha web site under their Chaos Wars dwarves from their last Kickstarter. 

Is that iron wind miniatures? or someone different?

It's Iron Wind Metals, and at the same time Ral Partha. They got back their ralpartha.com domain, so if you go to that site you'd see droves of Partha happiness.

      Recently finished this lovely mini from Dark Sword. Toyed with a few ideas but the winter theme ended up being the one that stuck. I wish I had had more time to spend on it but I am happy with how she turned out.

      Hello to all the forumites of this fine page!
       
      So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base.
       
      I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one:
       

       
      and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf:
       
      Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords
       
      If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis
       
      And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf:

      Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman!
       
      So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days.  For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors?  In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest.  
       
      The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently.  
       
      Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about.  I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future.  And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)!

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
      "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.

      An older miniature I started years ago, but finished recently. I think it was mostly the weapons (shading) and dirty shirt missing. I would say the paint job is average, but I do like the miniature.
       
      I decided to go for a simple, but interesting base, featuring a Nolzur's bottle and Thomarillion barrel.

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!
