Shadowrun Hobgoblin from Ral Partha

Recommended Posts

All of your Shadowrun characters have been BEAUTIFULLY painted creations, but, for me, this Roguish Fellow is OUTSTANDING...it might be the metalwork. VERY WELL DONE!

I wonder if it’s the metal work or do you just like the vibrant colors? I’ve admired your work for quite a while and you have so many pieces with strong, bold coloring!

The vibrant colors may very well be the attraction. You did a SPLENDID job utilizing a fine selection of colors.

Great, vibrant paint job, like all the SR figures you've painted. And I absolutely love this figure. I painted him up this past summer and he's known as "The Randall" in our group after a player who recently passed away. He had a big mohawk (alternately all green or in a rainbow pattern) back when we were all young and even had a Y-shaped scar on the side of his head where we accidentally ran him over with a van one night. Just like this miniature! Seeing your awesome paint job makes me think of him and laugh a little. Thanks.

I'll add another vote to the great vibrant colors! Love his candy colored hair too - the skintone is really great as is the look of his weapons!

Thanks so much! Punk figures I’m finding out are kind of fun, either dark and silky and gothic or colorful as the rainbow!

I actually have never played Shadowrun before, but I’m guessing it’s a fun milieu to hang out in. One of the things I like at least visually from the figures is their conception of technology. There are a lot of figures that have these big rectangle computers/keyboards that are kind of like laptops.

 

I’m glad I could bring back some fond science fiction role playing memories!

Thanks Iridil!  The weapons started out as ashen blue, then some soft blue, dark elf skin, then dark shadow (a dark brown), then dark elf shadow, and then finally black.  On top of the ashen blue to highlight I did rainy grey, then misty grey, then ghost white, then just white white.

Being a 90’s punk rocker, I love your SR punks so much! I’m gonna need a picture of the whole cast of Mad Max when you’re finished! Go bold or go home, GREAT JOB!

I don’t know if I’ll ever get them all finished, but as I get those punks done I’ll always post them here!

I love it!

Awesome colours!

 

If you have another one like that, maybe paint an anarchy symbol or something like that on his jacket?

 

That mohawk is super!

I’ve got lots more Shadowrun to paint and I hope at one point I dare to do some freehand!

A crude circle with an A through it in red is all it needs, it can be sloppy...since ...PUNK!

You can do eett!

      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!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!
