Ral Partha Sorceress with Wand by Dennis Mize

Recommended Posts

Nice choice of color. The pink inner side of the cloak works beautifully with the green and dark purple.

I also like the unusual green color of the lips. You managed to pull out the hair detail as well, great work.

She has some lighter green eyeshadow, don't know how well you can actually see it, and the lipstick to match. With the darker skin sometimes it needs a bit of contrast to make it pop.

Gorgeous skintones on her, and that green is both soft and vivid at the same time - great texture comes through in the folds.

Thanks Warlady,  I can't remember for sure, but I think the base color of the green was the Reaper Leaf Green and then copious washes and highlights.

Beautiful skintones and great face (so tiny!) - love seeing these older minis so well done!

I’m very glad them Iridil, I plan on painting them for many years to come! I’m 51 now, so hopefully another minimum 20 years of painting before I either go blind or get the shakes, hopefully 26 minis or more per year, so hopefully another 520 or more minis painted before I abandon this mortal coil.

She is beautiful, and the dark cloak really looks like velvet!

Thank you Citrine, I wanted kind of plush colors for this mage.  I hope she just didn’t go too colorful.

I love the skin tones, and the graceful color scheme. 

Thanks Viking Hank, not too many colors?

Old Ral Partha gets an auto-like from me, Mize was a master!  But this time it's for the paint job too.  Nice.

Wow this green robe really looks impressive well worked out, fantastic as well as the skintones, the face and simply the overall look. Yep I also think this purple and pink matches well with the green.

So hard to choose colors! I eventually give up and just slap down a color that doesn’t overly offend my eyes!

      I am not good at telling stories on paper.  my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself.  this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s.  The piece is high lead content.  so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). 
       
      The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving.  The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
       
      I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box.  I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring.  The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
       
      anyway the WIP is here if your interested:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
       
      and here are the images of the final project.  Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this.  Feel free to comment and question away as always.  The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
       



      One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....



      And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      Hello everyreaperbody! 
      So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize.  Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one.  Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby.  I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago.  Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much.  So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep.
       
      I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over.
       
      So anyways, hope you enjoy!

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?
