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!

      Good morning everybody and Happy New Year!
       
      So I actually had these painted since the very beginning of the year, but had to go out of town and couldn't get their bases finished until I got back.  So here are my first miniatures completed for 2020, four lizard men that Julie Guthrie sculpted for Ral Partha if I recall correctly in 1982-1983 with her series All Things Dark and Dangerous.  I've always really loved these figures and have had them on my pending list of stuff to paint, but finally got around to really painting them.  I painted each one in a different color because I wanted a bit of variety.  They did all start of though being covered by a good layer of Creamy Ivory (Reaper) and then I did washes on all that, and then afterwards chose the actual color and kept going.
       
      Anyhow, hope you guys like these guys!

      So as the year comes to a close, this is my last miniature of 2019.    I thought my figure from a few days ago would be the last but I got lucky enough to have  time to squeeze one more in!
       
      This one is a Dennis Mize figure from who knows what year, but pretty old, and she was sitting on my desk for months already primed and ready to go. Somehow the inspiration took me and I started working on her a few days ago, and in delightful old class Partha form, her lack of additional dingly dangly items on her person made her a pretty quick paint job, just herself, her armor, shield, weapon and a belt.  So got her done a few nights ago, got the base done last night.
       
      With this gal, one of my issues (as always )was what I was going to put on her shield, because I never know what to do, but in a moment of inspiration it occurred to me that she could use an enchanted shield to make up for her limited visibility due to her poked out eyeball that would have been under that patch.  So I made the the opposite eye open on her shield and voila, I've solved her limited vision issue!
       
      So my total for 2019 was 60 miniatures, the majority Partha, but a smattering of Reaper as well.  Did two Thunderbolt Mountain minis as well.
       
       
      Anyhoos,  Happy 2020 everybody and we'll certainly speak next year with all next year with new miniatures to share!

      Good evening all!
       
      here comes another rogue, the male version of the female that I just finished a few days ago.  For both of them I did the same skin color, starting out with Olive Skin, but then the other colors I diverged. I was thinking, much unlike the earlier elves and half-elves I did, that rogues would be more chaotic and independent and wouldn't likely dress so similarly.
       
      I tried to give this guy that kind of reddish hair that you sometimes see with Afghan men on the TV, the ones that probably dye their beards.  Didn't just want a black or deep brown. Don't know if it turned out like I'd hoped, would welcome your opinions:
       

       
      And here are a few photos of them together:
       

       
      I also did different bases on them.  Upon hindsight, I probably should have done them both equally, but oh well, too late now!

      Hello all!
       
      So I just finished working on this little thief, from Ral Partha's male and female range later on, maybe in the end of the eighties/beginning of the nineties, not so sure. I'm working on the male version, but that probably won't be finished for a few days.  
       
      So used Reaper's Olive Skin as her base/mid-tone color, just in case anybody's curious.
       

       
      I think this was sculpted by Jeff Grace.  Pretty simple miniature to paint.  The one stickler was all her studs.
       
      Anyhows, hope you all enjoy!
