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.

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 in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime!
       
      So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box.  This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures.  I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted. 
       
      Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon:
       
      and a few close ups of his massive skull:

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors.  Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices.  As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors.  Still haven't done much blue yet.  We'll see what dinosaur comes next.  Anyway, hope you enjoy him!
