Great job Moonglum! The blending and shading around the torso looks really great. Awesome skin tones, seriously. Your eyes on this are marvelous.

Thanks so much Mr. Knekk! I always think if you can get the eyes okay, everything else will more or less fall in to place. 

 

When I used to painted as a teenager  I used to wait to do the eyes last which upon hindsight is a horrible thing to do. Now it’s always the second thing on my minis right after the skin (which I always do first) and before hair.

Wonderful painting of these classics - both the horse and human tones are spot on and so smoothly blended. I got this pair back and the day and have always liked them - you're making me think of repainting....

Thank you Iridil!  I'd say pull them out, strip them down and repaint them if you have them!  They are really nice figures, and relatively simple to paint, it's all horse and person, no weapons, clothing, bags, backpacks, potions, et cetera!

They didn’t sell? I had those two! I’d love for them to be reissued.

Nice job with the coloring of both horse and human!

What I liked with these was the fact that they were very natural colors, browns and tans and earth tones.

I can’t really confirm that these models in particular never sold, but I was told that if they didn’t sell 200 pieces, they would be taken out of circulation.  There have been a number of Partha models that happened to over the years, I’m guessing that the female hill giant was also one of those, which once again is a true pity because the figure itself was so beautiful (beautiful in a lady hill giant sort of way).

      In the thread "Metal Minis We Would Like to See" I posted about getting a triple figure pack for all possible uses with your adventurer. Figured I'd post an image of one I used back in the late 70s when I played Chivalry & Sorcery. The mounted and foot figures are Ral Partha and the dead one (luckily never had to use him) was an Orc casualty figure (manufacturer unknown) modified by using an extra RP knight. And yes, I do know how to spell complete; I'm referencing one of my favorite books, The Compleat Enchanter by L. Spague deCamp and Fletcher Pratt. Check it out for a very fun read!

      This is a repaint of a mini I first painted in the 80s. If I recall the bottom says 1983 Ral Partha. I do not know the figure ID or sculpter, but the folds on her cloak were gorgeous - they pained themselves. 
       
      I did the repaint as I have a character who is a teenager - and could not find an appropriate modern mini. I've never repainted something from my youth, I am generally to nostalgic. The before is the pale skinned one.

      Another deep dive into the abyss...
       
      This infernal figure was torture to pin and glue, and the storage of it is devilishly tricky because of the super bendy spear.





      I really wish that minis produced with pole arms / spears would use a bit of stiff wire overmolded with the pole arm / spear casting.
       
      I have had to adjust this spear so many times. I must have done something really evil in my last life...

      I ain't even gonna try to feed this beastie lemongrass...
       
       



      Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.
       
      But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.
      I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.

      I've been rummaging through my mini hoard and found all kinds ancient treasures, boxed sets with the original inserts!
       
      My stupid question is this, is anyone interested in photos of the boxed sets for identification purposes? The collection goes back to the early 80's and is from a plethora of companies.
       
      If members are interested in miniature identification, then should there be a dedicated thread where members can post pics of their boxed sets and still carded minis? Or is there already a thread for mini identification?
