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!

      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!

      Hello gents and gentesses!
       
      So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues.
       
      This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979.  I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times.

      Here is here face:
       

       
      and here is a link to see the rest of her in Instagram:
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAqKGQXnPgh/
       
      or if you don't have access to Instagram, another shot of her from the Lost Mini Wiki:
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/9/9d/DF-247_A.JPG
       
      which only gives a single angle of her front.
       
      In any case, a nice and simple figure to to, as it's just a girl and her skin basically.
       
      Here is the whole set, unpainted, so unedited:
       
       
      Crazy the things we were allowed to buy in the eighties as teenagers!
