Great job again!

And together they're a great group!

Thanks Glitterwolf!  Remember back in the day when they used to sell blisters of three or four minis with the same theme?  Ah, those were the days (waxes nostalgic)….

 There's also a Rawcliffe pewter version of her, which was listed as Maid Marion...

I didn’t know that, even though I knew that Ral Partha worked together with Rawcliffe on a number of things.  This is one of the figures they also used for their “Lost Worlds” line, which was some kind of miniature game.

Found the book cover on line, I would have had a color guide had I only thought to look!3E6948B9-DFB0-4BAF-8402-94F051B269C7.jpeg.b4b5ed7f8a56aba78ee179ae7c32dd93.jpeg

 From what I've observed, the decision process behind which Partha figures were redone in pewter by Rawcliffe was... mildly eccentric? :rolleyes:

The larger stuff like dragons, 54mm wizards, polar bear chariot, sure... But the regular-sized 25mm figures included everything from bad-elf looking Chaos Wars fighters and high-level wizards to some incredibly generic-looking  low-level "adventurers" that could be background extras in anything from Robin Hood to Tolkien.

Yeah, no idea how they decided what Rawcliffe would produce and sell. I tried to check out on the Lost Mini Wiki and they have a number of references, but very few photos.

Great trio of oldies! Really like her yellow shirt, almost looks like a very soft leather.

Thanks Iridil! Yellow isn’t hard to pull off but it takes quite a many quotes. After I put on so many coats and then give up, I then start washing with palomino gold which covers the yellow pretty well and then darker washes afterwards.

Beautiful job and a great set!

Thank you Warlady! It’s fun to paint one of these old blister packs!

They are awesome all together. I really like the expression on her face and the attention you give to detail like her eyebrows. Again, you did a beautiful work all around.

They are small minis but the faces are large enough and the eyes are sculpted well enough that they are not overly difficult to paint. My problem has always been that I usually get one eye and eyebrow perfect (usually the left as I look at the mini) but then have a problem with the right side. I’m left-handed so other people maybe have the same problem but on the opposite side?

      So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties.  Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
       

       
      was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
       
      Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
       
      With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
       
      So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!

      Hello again!
       
      so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979.  Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below.
       
      With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing.  So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress.  The blue blouse I think turned out better, more visually transparent.
       

       
      She's a tad out of focus with this extreme close up, but hopefully this will inspire you to see the rest of her in the links.
       
      So here's Instagram, where you can see her from all angles:
       
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAtNLTBHuZK/
       
      or just where I stuck her main photo in the Lost Mini Wiki:
       
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/4/4e/DF-245_A.JPG
       
      So anyhow, that's the last of the naked miniatures I have in mind for the near future, I promise the rest will have a bit more clothing on, or will be monsters that just don't need clothing!
