they look fantastic, really like the shading and the range of colors on the skin as well as the clothing and armor, excellent palette matching

 

are these still available to purchase or are they OOP?

Some of them certainly photographed much brighter than they look in real life.  Probably a result of the different washes I used on them.  Having said that, I did make a conscious choice to make them pretty green.  I'm exploring different skin tones as I do multiple orc/monster groups.

I'm not sure if Iron Winds is still producing them.  Like I said, though, I always catch them at a con, usually Gen Con, and they've always had them in their mix and match bins.  I know Ral Partha Europe is still selling them. That's what helped me figure out their origin and what parts I needed to replace.

 

The nice thing about them is that even though they're 20+ years old, size wise they stand up to the bigger 25mm-28mm models they sell these days

I understand that. My choice is more to olive green. But your Orcs are quite cool. No matter what skintone they have :poke:

Excellent!!! Wow, this looks fantastic. I love the limited palette you used here and also the clean painting style as well as the depth you achieved here. Great! Thumbs up.

Thanks, i checked out  Iron wind and they sell a couple that look similar in style, might have ot grab the set of 15 for $40. That will be enough ORc's to last a lifetime and pass down to grand kids LOL

   in case your interested, here's one they show close up, not painted  as well as yours.

Sculpted by Tom Meier , i think i see a resemblance to yours no?  They definitely unique to anything else I've seen, and that appeals to me

I'm pretty sure those are a different line of orcs.  Good looking ones, nonetheless.  The ones I painted have derpier faces.  That guy looks meaner.  Ha.

I really love these muted tones you paint these with! 

With those other orcs, those are sculpts from Tom Meier and are very nice but a good deal smaller than the ones you painted.

      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.

      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!

      So here is the third figure from the set I was working on recently, a female fighter or ranger with staff. Nowadays on the Ral Partha's site, they just call her a fighter, but she originally belonged  to a three piece blister pack of Rangers from Julie Guthrie's "All Things Dark and Dangerous" figure line.
       

       
      Being she was a ranger originally, quite the opposite of the Ranger Archer I just finished a few days ago, I tried to give her a bit more natural colors.  And here is then the group together, and the original image I found from an old catalogue:
       

       
      So anyhow, fun figure to paint, hope you all enjoy!
