Ral Partha Ki'Rinn Two Versions by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

They look terrific.  To  the style is a land version of Siamese fighting fish.  I can see the glorious battles for dominance in the fields of Nippon

 

Great work!

Great work!

 

Thank you!

 

The resemblance to the fighting fish is correct!

Nature is an awesome source of inspiration.

It will be applied to some of the creatures in my Nippon project.

These are great, Glitterwolf!  I love how these two figures are such nice blank canvases (I suppose like all other miniatures) where you can just do so many different color schemes and they are all equally as valid. I'm not sure which one I like more, please don't make me choose!

Don't worry, you're allowed to like them both! ::P:

Really like the highlighting of the scales with the metallics and the use of the alternate colors on the two. My favorite is the green but they are both very nice.

Very nice. I like how you captured the shimmery quality of the scales.

 

Thank you both!

I appreciate it!

Those two are a lovely match. I'm going to have to paint mine up one of these days.

 

Thx!

You should!

I love seeing how others paint these!

      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!

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!

      Hello again Reaperlings!
       
      So here is the other figure I finished this morning from their Shadowrun Range, a Jim Johnson Female Bounty Hunter with Machine Gun.
       
      With this gal, hard to decide on colors. Do I go strictly drab and military greens and browns or do I add some color into it? I opted for color:
       

       
      I'm hoping/guessing that she's got some kind of radio/cell phone/walkie talkie in her other hand, but hard to know for sure. I think Shadowrun probably had a bunch of different technologies, not at all familiar with the game, but really do like the figures.  
       
      Once again, enjoy, hope you like!

      Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
       
      So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
       
      The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords.  I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
       
      So here she is:

       
      In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use.  I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work.  Such is the curse of the painter....
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure.  One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before.  She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off.  No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.

      Morning everybody!
      So just finished this one up and got photos edited.  I've had this figure for a while now, just finally getting time to paint it, he's Ral Partha, Wizard from Ral Partha's Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night series.  One of the first miniatures of that series, and this might be the second version.  There was another version with a shorter hanging cloak, and then one was done many years later, where you are able to easily see Tom Meier's progress over the years.  This was sculpted in the seventies, in the infancy of Ral Partha. It's a fun miniature and this is just a huge and heavy chunk of lead.
       

       
      and then kind of little close up of his tomes:

       
      and this figure oddly enough at one point came in a gold plated version as some sort of prize.  No idea why I have it, I think it came from when my brother was working at Star Realm, our local game shop.  Sadly, as I was bringing him upstairs to photograph, he did a nose dive onto my basement, concrete floor and got a piece of his gold plating knocked off around his hat:
       

       
      Beyond that he has certainly seen better days with rust/mold or whatever happens to gold plating after 40 years or so.
       
      Anyway, hope you enjoy this little look into miniatures history!
       
      Mark
