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!

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!

      Hi all!
      So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera.
       
      This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize.  This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series.
       
      I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful.  The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use.  Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar.
       
      And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk:
       

       
      So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon!
      Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate!

      So here is a small little mini that was sculpted way back in 1979, making the sculpt already 40 year old.  It was sculpted by Dennis Size in the old Partha Days and belonged to a game that Partha had produced called the Witch's Cauldron, which pitted adventurers against monsters.  I've never actually played the game some miniatures that I've painted actually came from this game. So here is the witch, to whom the cauldron belonged.  She is a small little figure and crouched down to make her even smaller.  The white hair has actually got some shades and washes in it, but you can't always see them in these photos. Anyhow, enjoy:
       

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with her. I was kind of going for Drow but not Drow. I really like the "Dark Elf" triad for the Drow, but I've seen artwork that shows Drow skin almost more like dark, natural tones, so wanted to give a try for that, plus I'm also painting two other figures with the same skin tones that just flat out have a more African vibe.

      And here's another one I did at the same time as my little witch.
       
      Also a really small figure, seated, and 25mm, sculpted too in 1979, part of Deniss Mize's series "Children of the Night". This little gentleman was originally in set called the "Voodoo Man Set", where he was a little voodoo witch doctor I think, and he had two voodoo zombies with him.
       
      The biggest problem with this guy was his eyes.  He is so incredibly small that after I painted the whites of his eyes, I couldn't get an actual dot in there, so I ended up painting the whole eyeball blue. Not exactly what I wanted, but the eyes were also sculpted in such a way that they were very defined and you really couldn't get away with painting over them and still have them look okay.  So not too sure about how that came out but otherwise, not too disappointed.  I didn't really do much with the base, just glued him on, added some green stuff and painted over it.
       

       
      And to give you guys an idea about this fellow's size (or lack thereof) a comparison shot with a quarter:
       

       
      With him and his little buddy the witch. They got to know each other pretty well whilst sitting on my desk for a week.

      I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland.  But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
       
      I used these minis to make it.  The wendigo's head was chopped off.  Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. 
       

       
      And I saved the body of the unicorn.  At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!

      Finished this one up yesterday, got photos this morning:
       

       
      and these are old school Partha minis, so for a size comparison, these photos:
       


       
      So with this one, I wanted to avoid the blahness of a shield with nothing on it, so I tried a design which apparently couldn’t figure out if it should be a dragon or maybe a bull.  Not so satisfied with it but it’s better than my hooded fighter from a recent post, where I just put o a geometrical pattern and called it a day.
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
