"What, ho!", he said, referencing Marion <Madog ducks>.

 

Very Errol Flynn as already mentioned. Good job on your color placement. Another winner!

 

PS. I especially like that you are also a fan of Ral Partha stuff, especially the older items. Did you enjoy your trip to their factory? I went a couple of times when they were down in Norwood, and when I discovered the new (at the time) IWM location, took my home schooled kids on a field trip there. We all loved seeing the entire process and Mike Noe and the staff were all quite kind to us.

Hi Madog,

 

Thank you for the kind words!  Yup, enjoyed my visits there quite a lot. I think I've been there now maybe four times, but nothing I do too frequently, as I live twelve hours away driving!  The folks there are always super friendly, nice bunch of guys!

Is Ral Partha still available? I'd love to pick this mini up, big Errol Flynn fan!

 

 The majority of the old Ral Partha minis are currently available from Iron Wind Metals... (IWM is essentially Ral Partha 2.0, as some of the same people are in charge of it.)

 

 And this guy is still available - in their online store, on the left side of the screen click on "Fantasy Player Characters", then in the middle of the screen click  "Rangers"... He's listed as DF-424 Robin Hood, and will set ya back $4.25...

 

He is, of course, in true 25mm scale, which means he'll seem rather small compared to modern figures.

Very nice work on him!

Do you have any of his companions?

I was kind of wondering that myself.  I see there is out there a potential Friar Tuck, but not so sure about any others.  Is anybody aware of an actual set of these that might have existed?

      And another Shadowrun figure, the third figure from what was originally a three piece set of Elven subtypes.
       
      This dapper gentleman is a Wakyambi, which from what I read on line (haven't ever actually ever played Shadowrun or own any of the gaming books), he's an African Elf Subtype, tall and thin.  He was fun to paint, but his dingly dangly stuff eventually just made me cry for mercy in the hopes I would someday finish. His necklace and his little staff had quite a bit of details to it, as well has his funky monkey belt buckle.
       

       
      and here is the set in its entirety, not completely great focus, but it's hard to get three figures to focus nicely:
       

       
      So three more finished, I wonder how many more I can get done before I go to the great beyond?  Hopefully 50 or more per year for another thirty to forty years, but we'll see....

      Hello to all you bovine aficionados!
       
      So a while back ago I did a normal minotaur, Greek-type mythological beast with an axe on two legs.   This one is a little different, it's a Shadowrun Minotaur which has a bull's body and a "primate" face.  I think Jim Johnson sculpted it back in the nineties, as usual forgot to check for a date on the bottom.  Pretty straight forwards colors, and it's actually kind of a big and heavy model. Put him on an oval base because there was no way he was going to fit on a normal size circle one:
       

       
      Anyhoos, hope you guys all enjoy him!

      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!

      So this is my first complete kitbash, this one is made of parts from five different kits. I've made it to be used as a ranger for my Rangers of Shadowdeep warband. Hope you like it!
