Wow respect.... I think the blue eyes work great, and really cool skin tones.

Thanks very much Mr. Knekk!

 

I've got one more dark skinned figure I'm working on, which I hope to have ready by the end of the week.

Those skin tones are really nice. Brilliantly done.

 

Just out of curiosity: is there a reason why the thread title says this is done by Dennis Size, but you correctly say Dennis Mize in the first post? Is it some joke I'm missing on the scale of those minis (as evidenced by your last pic with the quarter)? Honestly, just wondering if it's a typo or perhaps a long-running joke about Mize's sculpts.

Thanks for pointing that out, it was just a typo that I’ll try to fix now!

Ok, thanks. Just making sure.

 

Pssst... hate to be that guy but... your post on the Ral Partha Witch by Dennis also has the same typo in the thread title and in the first post. :down:

Dang, it’s the auto-correct, it’s not me!

So what you are saying with that last picture is that I have quarters that are bigger than him. =)

 

If they were standing up straight they might be about quarter sized, but sitting down like he is and squatting like she is, then your statement is certainly correct!

Your skin tones are great, and I think the all blue eyes add to the spooky voodoo effect.

I agree with @Warlady

He is an unholy trance causing his eyes to turn blue.

I love the skin and the hair on this little fellow.

So hopefully the blue eyes served a purpose.However if I really wanted to emphasize them, I probably should have done something additional to them.

Yeah, that's what happens when I go into an unholy trance, I have to admit.

Older Partha sculpts had awesome anatomy, frankly more accurate than today's Reaper figures.

 

The downside is that makes the eyes TINY, especially on 28mm figures, and difficult to paint.

 

I'm a hand drummer, although I don't hold my drum this way, as my style is Middle Eastern instead of the more popular African (or bongos). Maybe I should get this guy just because of his drum?

Thank you Iridil!  It was easy to get highlights with his back, because he's thin and bony!

It is sometime kind of realistic, and other times crazily exaggerated.  This little guys has a huge long drum-beating arm, probably not  quite proportional, but yeah, the eyes are pretty realistically proportioned, even though sadly way too small. 

 

I'd say yes, grab a copy, he's out there on Partha's web site, not expensive at all!  And who knows what other old gems you might find there!

      Hello all,
       
      just finished this one up, a Ral Partha Children of the Night Megalosaurus. I told myself I was going to stay away from greens and grey, which is of course what this one ended up being.  I threw some pink highlights into his mouth and throat, which started making me think a bit about the Joker.  
       
      This guys is a dinosaur so he's a pretty hefty piece of metal.  I should probably photograph some day a normal sized person to give a comparison. He's on an oval base, no idea how big it's supposed to be. 
       
      Anyway, hope you like!

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      two more figures from classic Rat Partha, these two are currently called "Beggars" but used to be part of a Children of the Night set that came with a seated old holy voodoo gentleman I painted recently.  Here's the original set:
       

       
      and here are the two beggars:
       

       
      and here is the front of the female beggar, linked for an exposed female mammal part dangling about:
       
      Female Beggar, beware mammal parts!!
       
      I didn't originally mean to give the male beggar a black eye, but his eye was actually just a small little slit, and I was going to leave it as a dark link. So I did the line, then did the black eye, but after that, because I just couldn't resist, I tried to put white over the slit, and even though the white slit kind of took over and made it big enough for an eyeball to go there too, I think it came out okay.
       
      The two figures were pretty simple and they are rather small, being some nice old Dennis Mize 25mm.  If I remember to, I'll grab the quarter comparison shot one of these days.
       
      and just in case you want to see the whole set, I'm sticking the little old drummer voodoo priest here as well:
       

       
      to show the complete set!
       
      So hope you enjoy, thanks for having a look!

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups
