So I don't know much about Battletech, more of a fantasy guy myself, but I do like these figures which are some Mech Warriors that were sculpted back in the eighties by Bob Charette that Ral Partha just recently re-released. They have eight per pack with different poses, and I got these first from the Liao Faction/Clan/Family. Going to eventually get through the whole group and I'll eventually photograph the whole group together, which is why I haven't based them yet. I've been told these are the pilots for the Mechs and it's very hot in the cockpit, which is why they are pretty scantily clad.
These are eighties Partha, so they are some pretty small 25mm sized figures. More to come later as I finish them!
My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.
Good morning everybody, so here's a figure that's actually been sitting on my paint desk for probably six months I'm guessing. I got his skin and his white beard done, but afterwards all the colors to add on afterwards were kind of stumping me, so I ended up just leaving him sitting there for months and months. For some reason though after getting back from a business trip two weeks ago, I took him up again and finished him pretty quickly. I think it was a combination of color choices and some tight spots to get paint to that were putting me off. Anyhoos, I got him figured out and finished. I gave him some pink shoes, just because I wanted to annoy the cosmic color wheel, but when I look at it, his shoes don't even actually bother me that much. So I'm not sure if I was able to accomplish anything in an attempt to violate the holy color wheel or not.
He's a Hackmaster Battle Mage, probably from around 2003 or so, originally sold on the Hackmaster range and acquired a few years back from Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha. Nice solid figure, pretty good side and despite my earlier trepidation, a pretty easy paint job to do.
Fronts and back at slightly different angles, couldn't choose the best ones so threw both sets in.
So anyhow, hope you enjoy!
And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night".
And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue.
Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt. Let me know what you think of the colors!
